Three things KJ ‘likes’ about Pakatan..hehe

August 25, 2013

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin was put on the spot at a student summit today when he was asked to name three things he liked about Pakatan Rakyat.
Khairy, who is usually a good orator, had his jaw gaping wide a few times while composing his thoughts.
“Umm… The first thing I sort of like about them, I have to be grudging about it… Oh come on give me a chance here,” he said at the 7th Annual Malaysian Students Leaders Summit in Kuala Lumpur to roars of laughter from the crowd.
When he finally managed to come up with an answer, Khairy said he admired the sense of camaraderie among Pakatan components.
“You would see DAP, PAS and PKR at the same ceramah.
“We (BN) try to do that as well but the sense of being together is quite obvious in Pakatan which I think is something to respect,” he said.For the second point, Khairy conceded that Pakatan appeared to give more space to young people, to which the room applauded in agreement.
“You don’t have to clap, you don’t have to make things worse for me, it’s already uncomfortable.
“The third (thing) I think is their (Pakatan’s) engagement on social media is a bit better than ours… Just a bit,” said Khairy, who is among the most active BN politicians on Twitter.
‘Too many old men’

To a question on whether Umno had an unwelcoming attitude towards youths, Khairy admitted that this was the case but the party was trying to change this.
He added that young people in Umno must also go the extra mile by going to the ground and cannot expect to be parachuted as candidates.
“I was Umno Youth chief but was not appointed to any ministry, I was in the wilderness for five years but I stuck (with it), learned about the programme, got to know the party and grassroots,” he said.
While some young people think that they would have more space by joining Pakatan, Khairy had an advice for them.
“Some young people say they should join Pakatan because it’s easy to be a candidate because BN has many old warlords who do not want to give way.
“But Pakatan has so many ‘young people’ that if you wait for them to ‘expire’ it’s going to take a long me.
“But we (BN) got many old men,” he quipped.

    Malaysia should have a retirement age for politicians, people like egregious Mahathir, mad dog LKS should have either retired or have really retired. But then what is going to happen to them ? Just like dogs they will keep barking until the day they die and for some especially when one never has the chance to enrich themselves for their old days like egregious Mahathi. This particular expired product is so proactive now, i might even add that he is now might active than when he was in politics. Except that he was too busy planning the white elephants and ensuring that he gets to collect his ‘commissions that went with them. How else can he become the riches man in Asia with a US$44- fortune !
    You can’t become the richest man in Asia after building Putrajaya ? Now because of the ‘commissions’ he is spending the rest of his twilight years just to ensure they are safely hidden away at any cost !
    One other thing he must think he is getting the support of the Umno warlords in that but the truth is the warlords are only out to protect the loot they have hidden away just like the egregious Mahathir is doing. These Umno warlords are NOT with protecting him but they are happy he is taking the ‘limelight’ and the attention he is in doing so. But can he get to enjoy the ill gotten gains ?

    Dear KJ,
    For Pete’s sake, don’t brand yourself same with those old warlords who are bringing the country to its knees soon .You are beginning to make us suspect your elite education bcoz you kinda think talk like those chest thumping, shouting hoarse mat penjuang duit.If you hate PR so much then be independent set up a new party and attract all the young brains who don’t see themselves ethnically.Most youths hope to see you rise up like a shining white knight riding in a white horse to save the nation but clearly you DONT have the guts, so goodbye!
