Is it truly a question of principles? Disagreement over the Allah issue perhaps?
Seems pretty nonsensical to me. The Pakatan stance on the Allah issue has been clear from the very beginning – why leave now, and not then?
For Zahrain, was it only after revelations of lobbying to get a multimillion contract awarded to a RM 2 company that he felt perhaps PKR had not been true to its goals after all?
Fairus moving just after being cleared by the MACC? Hmm.
Some speak of an independent 3rd force. In principle, this may not be a bad thing.
But let’s look at the quality of people making up this current ‘3rd force’ – rejects not only from PR or BN, but both; people investigated (and subsequently, wonder of wonders, cleared) by the MACC; and so on. I don’t think that’s the healthy 3rd force we’re looking for in this country.
Anyone truly dedicated to change knows that it doesn’t come easily. I think time is easily telling who will persevere out of integrity and passion, and who is perfectly willing to abandon ship when the going gets tough.
ps- there are rumours of another MP having been seen cavorting decadently with BN people, but I’ll leave out unsubstantiated stuff for now.
