Just about enough for a ‘VP’ doggie biscuit?

October 21, 2010


I view with incredulity Zaid Ibrahim’s latest unkind salvo against Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), which I sometimes think he forgets is the party he currently belongs to and is in running for Deputy President. It is very irresponsible and even malicious for him to suggest that PKR seems to be a one issue party – […]

UMNO-PERKASA split? Don’t buy this, folks. It’s more like a Dr M + PERKASA – Najib split!

Stud Soi Lek defended Umno today, insisting that he has never heard of any of its leaders being racist. Makes one wonder whether it was indeed MCA that set up the cameras in that love nest in Batu Pahat, and not UMNO? Or a joint effort, perhaps? Whichever, Soi Lek would have us believe that […]
