"Kepada semua ahli PKR, sudah tiba masanya untuk kita bangkit demi mempertahankan maruah parti dan selamatkan dari runtuhan. Kita akan berkumpul di ibu pejabat PKR di Merchant Square pada 13hb November 2010 pada jam 10.00 pagi."
This sms was preceded by a personal message: "Plse cover ..... Dato', could you arrange full media coverage for this event".
Interesting times. PkR is a political party that has almost perfected the art of street demos as a tool against its politiciak foes and the Establishment, as well as to champion causes. Now this tool is being used, increasingky, against itself. As a Malay proverb aptly goes, "Senjata makan tuan".
But will a demo against itself garner any support?
