You can fool some people some of the time…

…but not all of us, all of the time.

Malaysiakini reported that at the press conference at the PKR HQ yesterday, Azmin Ali denied communicating with party Anwar to order the breach of the barricade at Dataran Merdeka during the Bersih 3,0 Duduk Bantah rally on Saturday.

I don’t understand sign language so I’m not going to try and hazard a guess as to what they were signalling each other.

But that, apparently, is not all that Azmin said.

See this excerpt from that Malaysiakini report :

“Reporters then pressed Azmin on a video released yesterday, in which Anwar is seen indicating the former to negotiate. Azmin then points his thumb over his shoulder, while an Indian man sporting a yellow t-shirt makes the same gesture.

Azmin, who is standing on a platform, nods at Anwar and turns to his right where the man is seen standing on the ground and speaking to Azmin.

When Azmin nods at him, the man pushes open the barrier, letting the crowd flow through.

However, Azmin said today that he cannot remember making any such gesture to the man.

“I cannot remember speaking to anyone. But if anything, it was to indicate that I had negotiated with police,” he reiterated.”

Can’t remember speaking to anyone?

See for yourself and decide.
