Of Nero, desperate measures and...

It is said that Nero, the Roman emperor "fiddled while Rome burned". Of late, things get moving faster and faster, as if there is an invisible finishing line to be crossed. The competitors ? Obviously one of them is AAB whilst the rest are masked participants, unknown publicly but nevertheless guesses are openly made, albeit whether it is spot on is anybody's guess.

Star reported the cabinet's decision to start investigation on persons who may have break the laws with regards to the Lingam gate. De facto law minister Zaid Ibrahim mentions offences under the Sedition Act, Official Secrets Act and the Penal Code, which included obstruction of justice. Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail said he would go through the report before announcing whether he would be ordering a probe.

The first thing to note is the terms of reference (TOR) of the commission. Wiki has it here. In approaching the commission's report, one must not be bias or to make any pre-judgement to any of the names mentioned. Above all, it shall also be noted that humans could not unwind time and correct what is perceived as incorrect.

Malaysiakini reported an interesting point raised by the EC chairman. According to Rashid - after being informed about the cabinet’s decision to cancel the use of the ink - he was ordered to be responsible for the controversial scrapping of the indelible ink use.

This is the first time that TS Rashid touched on the issue.

And from the same EC, his deputy gives anoher probable bombshell - snap polls can be called. This statement is highlighted by Malaysiakini here. The deputy, Wan Ahmad was asked to comment on the uncertain political scenario following speculations of possible party-hopping by Barisan Nasional members to Pakatan Rakyat.

In the backdrop, Malaysia today says it with "As they play the final curtain"

Desperate people will do desperate you agree?

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

Black Ink Leaving Behind A Black Mark!

It's now red marks for the election's proposed black ink

Swinging between 'decision' and 'suggestion' it simply stinks

Even not taking into account how the stories to it are linked

Will the black 'liquid gold' fast become a white elephant before the next wink?
