I wrote publicly to Anwar in this blog on 26th September, 2018. Amongst other things, this is what I said. “Please understand that post 9th May, 2018, we, the rakyat, are no longer the people so long suppressed by BN. We fully understand and have experienced the sheer power in our hands when we come […]

Could there be an outcome other than Anwar winning? Realistically, I can’t see Anwar not being first past the post come 10pm on 13th October, 2018. However, given what this by-election represents, Anwar just winning may not be enough. He cannot drop below the 60% of the votes garnered by PKR on 9th May. Let’s […]

In May, 1994, my brother Adam, and I, were in the lobby at Parliament to listen to proceedings relating to a bill to amend the Constitution which, in my view, if passed, would remove an important institutionalised check against draconian law-making. When the constitution was first promulgated, law making required the consensus of 3 institutions […]

The last I wrote to you through this blog was on 18th August, 2008, 8 days before polling day in Permatang Pauh. Then I wrote to say that I was going to “take a chance with you”. Much has taken place since, and our personal circumstances have changed radically. You now languish in prison on […]

I inherited two things from my late father, who passed away in 2004. One, from his estate, the other from witnessing, at age 15, his stern and uncompromising handling of a traffic cop who tried to  solicit a RM3 bribe. My first mentioned inheritance was a pair of Baden Powell cuff links. Boy scouts may […]
