Anwar's Claim Of Defection By BN Reps Proven Untrue, Says Malacca Nutcase Mohd Ali Rustam
Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the smooth swearing-in of the MPs with no defections from the BN, for the first sitting of parliament's 12th session, which began Monday, proved that the BN representatives had the integrity that they could be proud of.
"I congratulate all the BN MPs who took their oath as they have upheld the people's trust and proved that Anwar's instigation and boast about defections from BN were nothing more than empty talk," he told reporters here Monday.
Also sworn in Monday was former Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia, as the Dewan Rakyat Speaker. He is from Kota Belud, Sabah.
As expected, Mohd Ali said, Anwar's claim was mere political gimmick which got himself trapped.
Last week in Kota Kinabalu, Anwar was reported to have said that several BN MPs had decided to join Pakatan Rakyat and what was withholding them was only the time factor as they had not been sworn in.
Mohd Ali, who is an Umno vice-president, believes that the Pakatan Rakyat itself would face problems as the opposition coalition parties -- PKR, PAS and DAP -- have different policies and ideologies.
***** Trying to sound very courageous on the outside while probably crapping bricks inside, this specimen from Malacca has tried to twist Anwar's words to make the BN reps look good. He has spoken too soon about the BN, especially Umno MPs, having 'upheld' the people's trust. The day is not too far away when like rats they will desert the sinking Umno ship.
Of course that'll be a really sad time for Ali Rustam, especially after having spent a fortune to buy sufficient support from the Umno riff-raff to move up the ladder to his current V-P post.
