No, really, I hope he will make a difference. I like his physiognomy. I am not an expert but my gut-feel has seldom betrayed me. Until I am proven wrong, I will continue to think that this anointed one will wash away the stigma of being a BN tadpole.
This may be wishful thinking on my part, but I just hope he has it in him to declare: FROM NOW ON THE MACC WILL ANSWER ONLY TO PARLIAMENT aka THE RAKYAT!
Will he? Corruption is the greatest evil in this otherwise blessed country. If corruption is allowed to continue unabated and the MACC continues to be impotent, then Abu Kassim is just a eunuch serf to an unscrupulous master. So will he make that declaration? If he can find the courage to make this unequivocal stand, the rakyat will root for him! Only a GREAT man will do this. Could he be the first? Abu Kassim, stand up and be counted. CARPE DIEM! SEIZE THE DAY!
UPDATE 5January2010....on second thought let me advise Kassim if integrity is more important than keeping the job - ask that all Parliamentarians, ALL, declare their assets. And while he is at it, the credibility of his organisation can be wrecked if everything, investigation et al will at the end of the day depend on whether the AG is willing to prosecute. The AG is the most powerful man in the country. This power must be removed. Can Kassim initiate this. Until you can swing this, my national flag will continue to give out its distress signal. Let us pray.
