Free Malaysia Today pulled a decent April Fool’s stunt. Then I was alerted to yesterday’s Malaysian Chronicle article HERE. I surmise MC did not intend it to be an April Fool’s piece but to drive home the point that it was a BN final spin. After three paragraphs it was veering to an April First attempt. Like always when I get a certain type of gutter whiff I scroll down to the author of the piece. Dang, two collaborated on this piece - Jean Marie Badeaux and David Mclaren - the former a Frenchman and the later a Scotsman going by their names, if genuine! These were unfamiliar names from the off-shore ones paid handsomely by GOM thru APCO and the British FBC media group. So I goggled both names and hardy-har-har (mock amusement) it took my search to THIS aussie blog that months ago Citizen Nades who (whilst in London around 2010 did some forensic search at the Centre for Investigative Journalism at the City University,) together with an expert exposed and confirmed the following:
Quintin (no, for now I will not reveal his full name as I respect my friend and fellow blogger who is his brother) is indeed Gopal Raj Kumar. He is also GRK ;Bill Merriweather ;William Merriweather and billm. Quintin also used Siti, Siti RB, Alta Mira.There are others: email@example.com; Marchant888@yahoo.com; (Marchant is Marchant the Indian = Godsbum.) Quintin is also barristerlee (Vincent Lee Eng Seng, and Alan Chong). Dang, the name escapes me, the lizard that changes color for self preservation.
Just wondering if GRK now is Frenchie and wears a kilt! Over to you Nades.
I must commend the GOM daily newsletters for not scooping up this trash from their normal gutter…..and I did not hear PI Bala say pundek from where he is!
However, undisputably a soiled piece of utter jutter attempt at journalistic spin so………. to the author….……
