I had actually wanted to write on the Shah Alam HIgh Court ruling that election promises made during an election continued to exist for interpretation as a policy by those who were elected based on the promises, in an unsuccessful application by the Selangor government and the Menteri Besar to strike out a suit that had been filed by a group of single mothers.
The court ruled that in consequence, the plaintiffs had a reasonable expectation to pursue their legal action.
Although the court's decision is only a ruling, the case is going to full trail and because of the sub-jaundiced, oops, sub-judice rule, I don't want to get myself in hot soup.
So I will write a little on Ibrahim Ali.
This guy has been called many names, not the least among which is 'Ibrahim Perkosa' (probably a play on Perkasa, the Malay right wing NGO that he heads)
I am not going to try the Malay interpretation of 'perkosa' because I don't think it is nice. But I can report that he has also been called 'katak'. And I can report here that 'katak' is just a frog in Malay.
A frog is not such a bad thing.
We need frogs too, otherwise the fragile Malaysian bio-eco system will go kapuk and we don't want this to happen otherwise what will we do with Putrajaya's wetland?
Balance is important.
Yin and yang is important.
But with IA (I much prefer to call him this rather than being 'kurang ajar' [rude]), I am not too certain if the Chinese are right about balance.
With IA, I much prefer him to be more yang than yin.
Aggressive, on the go, on the offensive, speak off the cuff without thinking and without any fear of any consequence because you know that you have 'aw pak suar' (Hokkien for behind your back mountain) to stay you up when you fall.
After he had called for the burning of Malay language bibles, IA now claims that he didn't mean to offend the Christians.
Right, of course you didn't mean anything you say.
They don't called you katak for nothing.
You hop here, you hop there.
You say A, you say B.
We love you IA.
You are making us love the opposition more.
And for that, we thank you!
