  • There is something I find curious, in his reply to Azmin, Zahid specifically mentioned that the Current President of Interpol is China's Vice Minister of Public Security ALTHOUGH NOT ASKED...Why in a rebuttal in Parlaiment he said that? Is he implying to the opposition that because its China party there are options or ongoing attempt to cooperate to close the case?

  • UMNO's narrative on Jho Low has changed from "no proof" and "no case" to "politically motivated". The 1MDB debacle has seemingly become "Najib's problem" even when the entire BN and their brothers in PAS have benefitted from it. Is UMNO so "clean" and holy that its leaders can only see dirt on others but not themselves? Can an arrogant and unrepentant UMNO addicted to easy money really turn around for the sake of our nation?
