Well, if it didnt knock your socks off then it must have been a real hoot, the current political situation, I mean.
Our boy Najib hasn't been very truthful, has he? He had denied any links with Saiful Bukhari, when the case blew up, saying the 23-year-old came to his office and met officials some months ago looking for a scholarship. But he admitted yesterday, here, that he had met Saiful at his house recently because the latter was so "traumatised" about the sexual assault and came looking for help. I believe they only call this "withholding information" or something. Sheesh.
Najib has also repeatedly denied any links with murdered Mongolian beauty Altantuya. But his credibility is now wearing thin especially after the "explosive" claims made by Razak Baginda's former private investigator Balasubramaniam at a press conference organised by Anwar Ibrahim, here, yesterday. (I had made my way to the PC but got sidetracked and lost in the rain). At the PC, Anwar said that he will "adduce further evidence soon." O boy.
Perhaps as pointed out by a commentator in my blog, we don't need to wait longer for Najib to self destruct before his competitors come for him.
