A bit of a throwback tonight.
Everyone involved in an adversarial profession will have that one great rivalry. Federer and Nadal. Professor X and Magneto. Big Mac and Whopper. On a much smaller and humbler scale, mine will always be with @rafiziramli.
We have clashed swords many times and even said pretty nasty things to each other. But there will always be a rival’s respect between us.
I don’t know what the final results of the PKR elections will look like. But I want to congratulate Raf for taking on the infamous cartel, which apparently promotes old school patronage and mediocre minds, and giving them a bloody nose. We both tried to shake up our parties. And we are both out of the mainstream. For now.
If it wasn’t for his commitment to Anwar and the reform movement, and mine towards rebuilding UMNO, we could have dreamt of a new party for Malaysia. Maybe in another lifetime.
p.s. The small fellow in between us was the moderator for our PTPTN debate. He is now the Minister of Education. Both debaters ended up in the wilderness.
