... and a 2011 post Replying to Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad's reply though in this, the 2nd one, only to a certain extent while at the same time attacking Azmin Ali, wakakaka, as follows (extract):
PKR under Azmin Ali (and let's not mince words here, he IS in charge of your party) has shown an amazing talent and consistent inclination to offend the very people that PKR/PR should in fact be seeking support from. While I have criticised Anwar I recognize some good he has and can continue to do for PR, to make it a cohesive alternative party to the BN for Malaysians to choose as their government, but I fear Azmin Ali and his obsessive need to control, dominate and dictate terms all the time to PR and indeed PKR leaders will inevitably pull Anwar down and disintegrate PR.
Believe it or not, I am fairly certain as far as I can recall correctly in my 10 years of blogging, I have never attacked nor condemned him for his two cases of sodomy (because I don't know what's true or not), focussing instead on his reformasi bull.
And I am certainly not going to comment on his current conviction either, nor on whether I believe he is a sodomite or not. Fact is I DON'T KNOW what to believe! And I have to admit I wasn't diligently following his case.
But my stern position against accepting Anwar as a true reformer or a political leader in the mode of Lim Kit Siang, the late Karpal Singh, the late Tan Chee Khoon and the late D.R Seenivasagam has been based on what I have learnt about his 16 years as one very powerful UMNO leader who was conspicuously silent about political reforms while he was luxuriating in power (even leaving aside his less than admirable ministerial policies and conduct), yes, not one single peep from him.
He only started screeching reformasi when he was thrown out of UMNO.
My unfavourable assessment of him has been vindicated by his series of antics when he was on the other side of the fence, in federal opposition - the shameful undemocratic 916, the even more shameful Taiwan frog hunt, the annoying hijacking of Bersih 3, the selfish Kajang Satay, etc, all very lamentable and most unreformasi or very deformasi.
Some have attacked me in their current frustration about Anwar's conviction, that I must be happy about him going to prison as if I am enjoying Xmas, New Year, etc all rolled into one.
I find such petulance childish, immature and in fact sad. I take no joy in anyone's disadvantage, misfortune or tragedy, though politically I will not accept hypocrisy nor bullshit, not even from DAP.
Legally, Anwar Ibrahim will now be imprisoned, until and unless Pakatan wins the next election to form a new Pakatan government and either order his re-trial or seek a pardon from HM for him, or until he finishes his term which with good behaviour reduction, could well be around 3 years' time.
