Post GE 14 : If Anwar Wants To Be An Effective Pm, He Cannot Be Wishy-Washy

If Anwar wants to become an effective prime minister, he cannot be wishy-washy. There are a lot of tough decisions to be made, not least the fight against corruption.

You cannot be wishy washy, softy softy. Anwar has himself admitted that compared to Mahathir he has a softer self.

Anwar had urged Bolehlanders not to be vengeful towards Najib.

In fact, the raykat are not vengeful rowards the ex Pm. They are just angry that he had caused them so much suffering.

It is the police who are investigating Najib for any possible crime and money laundering relating to the sovereign fund 1MDB he once headed. They have their SOP.

There are no complaints that the police were were anything but professional in their search of Najib's private residence. Even Najib's lawyer has admitted that.

It was not a midnight raid. The search apparently started at about 8 pm and continued on to the morning because police had to do a thorough search as apparently there were many rooms and the police had difficulty breaking into a safe.

You really can't expect the police, when they have not completed their search,  to say to 'It is already midnight. We are leaving now. We will come back when you have had a good night's sleep. Bye. See you again, buddy!'

What would a wrong doer then do? Say to the police search team 'Thank you very much, sir! I appreciate your concern. That is the right thing to do. I will keep any incriminating evidence so you can seize them when you return'

The  news  that at another high end residence said to belonged to a relative, the police had found some 72 travel luggage containing jewellery and currencies of various countries and 280 over branded bags must tell something.

The fight against corruption is a serious one if Bolehland is to be rid of the scourge.

No matter how high or mighty a person may be, even if he was an ex Pm, the law must not be seen to apply a different approach simply because of the fact of one's past status.

In fact, the higher and mightier a culprit is or might have been, the tougher approach must be taken to show that you mean business and that no one can get away with corruption.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
