Finally, clarity in the DAP-KeADILan negotiations via the Chairman.
If DAP intended to conclude the negotiations, they would have expressed their unfounded fears at the start of the negotiation, and not when it’s nearing the end. KeADILan would have thrown a set of documents at DAP to refute them.
Seriously. How many times must Anwar repeat himself. Even I’m bored. But this smells like an old trick by old hands at an even older game.
If that’s not enough, then all those negotiators didn’t have to waste their precious time during the past months hammering out details, and especially that of my friend’s kind labour making copious amounts of tea and coffee for them.
(ok – the latter is a side unrelated jibe at those in *that* office – apparently the presence of the double Y chromosomes means they are incapable of making drinks for guests, cleaning desks and the washroom, among other things).

DAP to go it alone if PKR works with PAS
(The Star) PENANG: The DAP will work with Parti Keadilan Rakyat at the next general election only if the PKR disassociates itself from PAS.
DAP national chairman Karpal Singh said the party wants PKR de factor leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to publicly declare that he will not work with PAS.
“The DAP is for a secular state, not an Islamic state. If Anwar chooses to be silent on the matter, the DAP is ready to fight without the PKR,” he said at a dinner organised by the DAP Bukit Bendera division on Saturday.
Karpal Singh, who is the Bukit Gelugor MP, said he would not be giving up his parliamentary seat despite being wheelchair-bound.
“I do not intend to give up. The Opposition has a big role to play in this country.
“We will put up credible and tested candidates, who have principles,” he said.
In Ipoh yesterday, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said the party planned to contest in at least 54 parliamentary and 115 state seats nationwide.
Lim said the party considered both the Ipoh Barat and Ipoh Timor seats, of which it is incumbent, as “dangerous”.
He said the party was unhappy with the electoral rolls in the two constituencies.
