Well, not exactly.
However, I heard that our MCA elections ended with Chua Soi Lek winning the position of party president. This got me wondering – someone who has broken our penal code, gotten his act caught on film, came out with a full admission of the act instead of denying it, got himself kicked out of a ministerial position for the act, got turned into a sort of pariah in the party – made the ultimate political comeback to win the party presidency in a coup de grace.
Honestly, my hat is off to him.
Firstly, for being able to last so long in the film before coming at the end. Secondly, for exhibiting a great amount of patience with all his detractors. Thirdly, for engineering his comeback with such pomp. Regardless of everything else that he may have done, I salute him for doing the highly improbable and near impossible.
What I don’t get is, why is he not in jail or something – for breaking the penal code with a full confession. I would think that this was an open and shut case for our police. It should not tax them one bit to park his sorry arse where it belongs.
Unless of course, he plans to push amendments through parliament – to change the bits of the penal code that he broke. I am sure that many people will thank him for it.
