At 11-40pm I received a very curt message that Anwar Ibrahim was arrested for sodomy. I was fishing at the Wharf and dismissed this as mischievous. At 12.03 the messenger said that the police would not arrest Anwar yet. thus confirming my initial misgiving that it was a hoax. I kept these messages to myself because I just hate rumor mongering. Earlier my credit had expired but I could still receive messages. In between these two messages an aide of MP for Wangsa Maju showed me the message he received. I asked him to verify it. He did and told me that he was instructed to blog it on the MP's blog as Breaking News. (What transpired from this is another story for another more interesting and appropriate time.....but currently embargoed.)
There is this believe that when you corner a rat and the ruddy rodent cannot escape your intentions, that mousy creature will do the suicidally unthinkable.....attack you. My limited intelligence limit me to this similar parallel. The BN has been battered and bruised and the threat of September looms embarrassingly. There are already 4 factions in UMNO, MCA is having their own requiem whilst MIC is already porchee. So they use the same template that was successfully employed in 1998.....but this time the payout will have to be such that Bolehland will have its youngest millionaire (billionaire?) at 23. And the small minded amongst us are scurrying for breaking news and scoop morsels. Its definitely tiring. HOWEVER THANKS GUS FOR SENDING ME HOME.
An afterthought at 4:52am.......after March 8 is it possible than anyone would jeopardise so much for a poke with a bloke? May 23million fire-ants make nest in the anus of the author of such preposterous fabrication.
