Will we see PKR-Umno collaboration?

Graphic: Astro Awani

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said PKR isn’t ruling out a collaboration with Umno but said that discussions are still in their early stages.

BFM explores how changing collaborations and coalitions have affected our politics, what PKR and Umno coming together would mean politically, and in the next general election, and finally, the future of Anwar.

Again, I wish to apologise to the analysts for not hearing them out before commenting.
To me, it matters not if PKR collaborates with UMNO – the end game will be the boy who screamed wolf will be bitten again. Yes, politics is the art of the impossible, and who knows, DAP may yet collaborate with UMNO for GE 15?
Yes, the pengkhianat nasional may sweep the board in GE15 , and I can live with that.That it has crawled into Putrajaya via the backdoor with a whole litany of frogs and toads is what I find most detestable and abhorrent.
