Why not Lim Kit Siang answer my question for a change?

Salleh Said Keruak

Lim Kit Siang has been posing a series of questions to me: so far 35. However, while he dresses them up to look like questions, they are actually statements disguised as questions. This is the normal tactic of disguising statements as questions leaving the person you are addressing them to very little room to reply.

If Kit Siang wants to make a statement or an allegation why not he just do that? Why pretend he is asking questions when he is not really asking questions? He just wants to make allegations. However, to avoid being taken to task for making false or misleading allegations, he dresses them up as questions and if cornered he can defend himself by saying he is not alleging but is just asking.

Anyway, many of those 'questions' Kit Siang posed have already been replied by other members of the Cabinet. Kit Siang is actually aware of this but he is playing the game of pretending he does not know this.

Kit Siang should stop this game of asking questions he already knows the answers to. And stop pretending to ask questions when he is actually making statements or allegations. Furthermore, Kit Siang should learn to accept different views.

This is a total waste of time and designed to distract us from more important issues such as who is Pakatan Harapan's choice of Prime Minister. Kit Siang, Muhyiddin Yassin, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, PKR and PAS do not appear united on this matter. Is that what Kit Siang is trying to distract us from? And my question is a genuine question, not a pretend question.
