I think I am a reasonable man, with reasonable expectations. As an old salt, I have always been uncomfortable with loose ends*, i.e., when there is no simple closure or simple answers to simple questions, such as:
Who ordered the 'neutralisation' of Mongolian beauty Altan whatshername?
Where is private investigator Bala whatshisname? etc., etc.
I simply cannot accept pulling of rank by swearing to a higher authority in His house that one is innocent and had nothing to do with all these mysterious happenings and disappearances. I would if I was born yesterday.
One of the first things Najib did as the new PM was to release 13 Internal Security Act (ISA) detainees and also lifted the ban on two opposition publications. Big deal. He also espoused a new 1-Malaysia concept, whatever that means.
Sounds familiar? Before we go gushing over this, many of us old timers may recall that former PM Tun Dr Mahathir (Oh how we adored him!) also pulled the same stunt when he became prime minister. He released some ISA detainees but a few years later dumped many others into the slammer in Ops Lalang. Remember BCA for Bersih, Cekap, Amanah? Now where did that lead us.
More form than substance I would say. So lets not be bloody gullible here.
Lets not fall for the so-called 1-Malaysia claptrap either.
* Nautical etymology: based on the idea of a wire or rope with untidy ends that are not neatly tied or spliced together.
