Of makeover and self denial...

After all the excitement of accusations involving bribery to both a senior politician and a senior public official, the statement by the Prime Minister has put a damper to the ongoing saga of theories and tale spinning.

The latest news by the Select Committee cancelling the coming 12th March '07 invitation to both the ACA director and its accuser, on the pretext that the police are investigating the case seems to be illogical at times. The police was given a chance several months ago to pursue the case but the AG has opted to classify it as NFA (No Further Action), so is there a need for investigation now? It should be the Select Committee to pursue the case, not to prosecute anybody but to get to the bottom of the things. If the ACA Director is innocent, then declare so.

The case of the Senior politician, on the other looks set for an interesting showdown, with the police nabbing the second detainee mentioned in the original accusation of bribery. And the interesting part is the detainee was nabbed by the ACA. What a coincedence. Has the ACA becomes super-efficient surpassing that of the police? Is there a friendly competition between ACA and the police with the police investigating the ACA Director and the ACA nabbing the detainees released by order of the Deputy Minister in charge of police?

However, it shall also be noted that the flurry of events happen after the Prime Minister commented that on the monthly gathering for Departments under the Prime Minister's Department.

The Prime Minister himself is not spared from entering the self-denial mode of side-stepping the issue whether he has re-married or remains a widower. The Prime Minister should come out clean and openly declare whether he has re-married or not. The issue of whether it is a rumour or not should be left as that. A rumour may be true and can be false. A statement of fact will remain a statement of fact. So, Mr Prime Minister, are you married now?

Another interesting news is the goody claimed by Ceupacs, the national body representing the public sector, that the Government may agree to the salary hike requested by the public sector. Is this a danggling carrot for the General Election?

Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
