For Riza, US$41m worth of gambling chips. Rakyat, BRIM & GST

I spent the better part of yesterday reading for the second time the Complaint filed by the US Justice Dept. Its been well analysed and dissected by Malaysiakini. For those of you who are not subscribed to Malaysiakini, I think its time you spent some money to support their news reporting. Malaysian Official 1 is […]

So who is Malaysian Official 1?

Just before 1am this morning, and then a little after 1am, Malaysiakini carried two reports relating to the forfeiture lawsuits filed by the US Justice Department to recover some 17 assets said to have been acquired using funds diverted from 1MDB. Parties named are Najib’s step-son, Riza Aziz,  Jho Low and two former Abu Dhabi officials. […]

How many does it take to constitute a 3rd Force?

May 19, 2016

First, lets get definitions out of the way. The freedictionary explains the phrase “THIRD FORCE” to mean, amongst others, “one or more nations, political parties, or other organizations occupying an intermediate position between two other opposed forces”. Could we expand this to allow for individuals? Or just 1? Seriously, I’ve never needed numbers behind me […]

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 […]

Who won Selangor in 2008? And how?

Heck, throw in the whole lot. Perak, Penang and Kedah, too. Who won, and how? We know UMNO/BN did not. Pakatan Rakyat? They weren’t even a formal election pact then. So who? In January, 2009, I was in Kuala Terengganu for the bye-election. BN had won the seat in the 12th GE. As the group […]

Treat the symptoms or rid the cancer?

May 13, 2016

A cancer blights the nation. Stage 3. Najib? 1MDB? These are the symptoms. I reckon the first signs of this cancer showed up some time in the 60’s, when the unconstitutional  notion of Bumi / non-Bumi was introduced into the national psyche. Divide and rule, remember? Then, round about 1973, the Alliance morphed into Barisan Nasional, bringing on board, […]

Opposition parties end-goal? Reform, or power?

April 26, 2016

In the run-up to the 13th GE, ground intelligence reports suggested that, subject to one important condition, opposition could win 12-14 of the 25 parliamentary seats in Sabah. That one all-important condition? Straight contests in all the constituencies. Government servants, uniformed personnel and small time businessmen dependent on small government contracts had to see and […]
