THE SCRATCHING AND THE STABBING HAVE BEGUN




Never for a moment did I think that she would take this route. Since this is her first offence, I kept her out of my Mexican chambers. Without any scruples, she unilaterally canonised SIL Khairy as the ipso facto annointed youth chief of UMNO. The movement's machinery has finally found an unlikely affiliate seemingly bent on spinning a spidery yarn (pun emphatically intended) extolling the invincibility of her newly discovered messiah. Yes she is none other than Joceline 'Jostling' Tan,
whose Insight column gives a Foresight of her take on Khairy on the Youth throne.

So what's with the title of this post? SCRATCHING as in "You scratch my back, I'll scratch your back", that is.

Scratcher #1: (pic top left) Faisal Abdullah, the Kapar Youth head; the same Faisal who resigned as Klang Municipal Councillor when found guilty of building a house without council approval. Klang one-time notoriously known as the dirtiest town in Malaysia went to great lengths to rid the town of those scavenger birds called crows, with regular sanctioned shoot-outs. Less crows now, but a new vulture breed called land-grabbers, migrated into Klang, Also, a SIL of UMNO permanent chairperson, FA is rumored to be linked to the mother of all fiasco, the RM4.63billion defunct (?) Port Kelang Free Zone.
To seek refuge from the impending storm brewing, he orchestrated a 50-men kompang gloved(!) group to welcome Jostling Tan's "most happening guy", the other SIL. Message intended: Boleh kah, tell your FIL to close one eye on PKFZ?

Scratcer #2: UMNO Treasurer and Star Hill division kepala, according to Jostling, said: "I can't see anyone else more suitable (than KJ) on the horizon....and should anyone hit out at you, the BB division will come to your defence." Hinted message: Say Hi to your father-in-law and so that ahem.......
And the scratch-back: Khairy assured this kepala that there could be a position in the national line-up, if he wanted it!

Scratcher #3: The Perak chief minister, and a senior minister at that, dived so demeaningly low by announcing that he wants Perak to be the first to nominate the 4th Floor supremo for the top Youth post. Posturing and Overture Message: Tell your FIL to let me try another 5 years to make........

And STABBING, like in surreptitiously "pushing" one over a precipice.

Stabber #1: Kapar youth chief, confidant of his non-practicing dentist boss, and knowing that his boss is no admirer of 4th floor SIL, engineered a reception that Kapar had never witnessed before for KJ.

Stabber #2: KJ's late night visit to Anwar upon the latter's release from incarceration was meant to be a scratch then. But no more. He stabbed Anwar as a puppet of Jews and America. Is kurang ajar synonymous with a stab in the back, or a kick in the face? Yes?

Stabber #3: Suzmi Meah, schoolmate of likely contender Mukhriz Mahatir invited Khairy to officiate at the Machang division meeting. If you have friends like this one, you don't need enemies.

Stabber #4: Jocelin 'Jostling' Tan stabbed us common folks when she consoled Khairy: "Khairy is being called all kinds of names from monyet to racists." Rocky's Bru asked, "Joceline, where have you been?" Zorro asks: Jostling Tan, have you too been bitten by the tsetse fly that brings about the sleeping sickness?" Anyway, the whole column smacked of a souled-out.

she has been sleeping? well, dont know how she can sleep by selling her soul like this to the devil. now, you know why there's no credibility left in the mainstream papers ( except for the SUN but then for how long?)

zorro said...

Anon, my daily breakfast is with the Sun and read only identified columnists in the NST and STAR, when they are featured. Yes, my hope too is that the Sun does not lose its light.

She has the flair and her style of writing suits my taste. Only that she is now like a hired writer who will write anything the hirer wish. Since I have stopped buying the mainstream media English newspapers, I missed her latest write up on the potential youngest prime minister of Malaysia.
Do you think she herself wants him to be our Prime Minister?

zorro said...

Zawi, when you sell out, nothing is predictable. However, if she wrote from the heart instead of from the pocket, I cannot fault her. Good journalist write from conviction. I only hope she did!

I stopped reading Star months ago. Decided to buy a copy on Sunday as we were having breakfast at the mamak. I was sooooo angry when I read the article.. especially the "the most happening" part. and she has obviously been reading blogs but she failed to realise that khairy called bloggers munkki first.

i agree with zorro, a good journalist should be able to write from conviction and not allow any outside elements to confuse their judgement. i think joceline is out to make a buck lah.

i decided no spending money on the star. i'll read them online.

oh are you the zorro which strikes a z whoever you attack ? good becozzzz there are many more to be zzzzzzed , but this lady you shdn't waste your time coz she's what we call a paper whore ( but then again who knows )

zorro said...

The Team and Anon. I used to read her columns and I am very discerning about the columnists that I read. Last Sunday's read was not what I expected from her thus eliciting my last sentence in the post. I normally am never harsh on ladies in general, but you gotta behave like a lady.

I think that a true journalist is a writer with a certain feeling for the world around him, and the people that populate it. And, someone who cared deeply about the issues that affect our very lives, and cared about trying to find out the truth, the causes for these issues. And to make the people really aware of all these by his writing, without fear or favour, nor for a personal selfish agenda.

Many of our Malaysian socio-political bloggers make me proud that there are some voices that bare their souls and aspirations for a united, harmonious and happy Malaysians.

Our mainstream media writers are mostly hacks who have lost their personal dignity and respect, and enslave themselves to their carrion masters commands and directions!! Many write drivel and outlandish propaganda. Really pitiful!!
