KUALA LUMPUR, March 18 (Bernama) -- Umno Youth vice-head Khairy Jamaluddin said he would not accept any offer to join the Cabinet as long as Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is the Prime Minister.http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v3/news_lite.php?id=321382
Khairy, who is also the Member of Parliament for Rembau, said he had informed his father-in-law of the matter before the general election on March 8, and Abdullah had acepted his stand.
Lulu, the slow thinker [see, it took her a week to figure out what she was wondering about] began wondering, not exactly sure what she was wondering about but left to wonder that there was something to wonder over.
Then Lulu realised roughly where her confusion lies.
The PM had recently reiterated strongly that Khairy Jamaluddin had never been an influence in whatever he has done or decision he has made http://web7.bernama.com/bernama/v3/news_lite.php?id=319844
But here is Khairy boasting that he had informed his father-in-law of the matter before the general election on March 8, and Abdullah had acepted his stand
the two scenarios on lulu's pretty little mind is
a) Khairy was supposed to be a part of the cabinet line up
but because he-who-has no-influence-on his-fil spoke to the fil before the elections, and this influenced the he-who-is-not-influenced-by-sil to conciously leave him out of the cabinet though he was a "deserving" candidate to be in the cabinet.
Meaning that he-who-has-no-influence does have influence and that he-who-claims-he-is-not-influenced is not a very truthful man.
b) Khairy was never a part of the intended cabinet
and he was just being perasan when informing the father-in-law and the public that he would not accept any offer to join the Cabinet as long as Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is the Prime Minister.
After all, if the PM did feel that his sil is the best candidate for the job, he should have gone ahead and named him, just like how he did for Tengku Azlan and Anifah who later declined the post.
You know how this kind of "i would not accept any offer to join" statement gives the impression that an offer was going to be made when no offer was on the table.
Kinda like Lulu going around telling people that she will turn down Daniel Wu [swoon...] 's (pic at the side... swoon again...) marriage proposal - not like Daniel Wu [swoon...] even knows who Lulu is, erh... much less ask for Lulu's hand in marriage..
dunno-la, Lulu thinks (b) may be the more likely scenario, cos our much esteemed and respected hadhari PM won't lie, right?
For all those who know not who Daniel Wu is, or think that that picture does not do justice to his lengchai-ness, here's one for you!
