Terence Netto has gone for the jugular, ….. yes, that of the Kulim Wonder.
In Malaysiakini’s Emboldened Zulkifli derails PKR Netto voiced his suspicion that the Kulim Wonder may be "acting from a script where he is not the sole author".
Netto asked us to recall what the Wonder had told the (so-called, wakakaka) PKR disciplinary committee when he was facing it the first time (for thuggishly barging into the Bar Council forum). Apparently the Wonder informed the (so-called, wakakaka) PKR disciplinary committee that he was the son of a policeman and has an elder brother in the Special Branch.
Then Netto saw something that gave him (& me) goose bumps. He wrote:
Yesterday, Zulkifli was present at the national mosque to pay his respects to former minister Ghazali Shafie who died on Sunday. He was seen to be on amiable terms with a top-ranked police officer.
Now any attempt to impute guilt by association would be contemptible, more so when inferred from behavior at occasions when the requisite solemnities demand a general forgetting of political differences in the face of mortality.
But judging from his actions over the past year-and-a-half is it unreasonable to surmise that Zulkifli may be acting from a script where he is not the sole author?
F* whoaaaaaa again.
Netto lamented that PKR lacks the balls (my word, not Netto’s) to ever deal with the Wonder appropriately, because he was actually recommended to be sacked for the original behaviour of hooliganism, but PKR leadership kept silent.
But to be fair, I recall its deputy president Dr Syed Husin being very angry with the Wonder and asserted that he would be disciplined. Alas, the point remains tha the Wonder was never disciplined, with Azmin Ali declaring he was ‘satisfied’ with the Wonder’s explanation, whatever that f* means!
That’s right, he was allowed to get away scot free for his thuggish behavior, based on WTF he told Azmin Ali.
Netto wrote in utter disgust:
More urgent now is the case of the problematic Kulim Bandar Bharu MP Zulkifli. For the better part of a year and a half, Zulkifli has publicly lashed out at friends and foes alike.
We do not know what Zulkifli would have done in isolation if the PKR politburo had endorsed the decision of its disciplinary committee in 2008 that he be sacked for intruding on a Bar Council meeting called to discuss the question of religious conversions.
The sacking recommendation was instead held in abeyance, with no action taken so far.
There followed two events: one, Abdullah Yeop Sani, a former Malaysian ambassador to Spain, resigned his chairmanship of the PKR disciplinary committee; and two, Zulkifli went on to supply further proof that he is not restrained by the mores that govern the public deportment of elected representatives of PKR, or for that matter, Pakatan Rakyat.
I suppose we can safely assume that Abdullah Yeop Sani must have resigned his chairmanship of the PKR disciplinary committee in sheer disgust when the PKR leadership (Azmin Ali? With Anwar’s approval?) refused to sack the Wonder.
Today, when the latest case of his sheer inexcusable indiscipline demands swift action by PKR, what do we get?
The title of the Malaysian Insider news article is self explanatory - Zul’s fate to be known within a month
Again the PKR leadership is beating around the bush and avoiding the issue, hoping everything would be forgotten by then, or at least the sense of seriousness ameliorated by time.
Even as PKR put a gag order on him, the Wonder went public to accuse his critics as Little pharoahs calling for my head.
Obviously he doesn’t give a sh*t what PKR says.
You may wonder why, but remember Netto has said about him and the police: But judging from his actions over the past year-and-a-half is it unreasonable to surmise that Zulkifli may be acting from a script where he is not the sole author?
