Wisdom or the lack of it...........

High Court rules Nizar as the legitimate Mentri Besar of Perak [ 11/5/2009]. I hail the High Court judge here, Justice Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim, for being the 'ultimate scholar', practising his art without fear or favour. At least this 'scholar' has not, and does not seem to have the inclination to sell his soul for a fistful of ringgits. "In a hall lined and packed with people trying to pay homage to the blind, this 'scholar' chosed to be guided by his 'intellectual' honesty. One cannot blame him if he does otherwise, judgement at the highest level ,oftentimes, can be 'clouded' by Queen's English and most of us the 'uniniated' could still be left gasping, " Ah these lawyers and judges are very clever with their words "! [ the spirit of the law, not the law, stupid! ] That chap, Pool Apakahnamadiadah rightaway comes to mind, clever use of Queen's English beyond our comprehension, then slammed the public with some bizzare judgements. We have too many of that for years.

One does not foresee 'scholars' like Datuk Abdul Aziz to finally become CJ, nor being automatically nominated for a Tan-Sriship, but in a year full of blatant cynicism and intellectual dishonesty within the public domain at the level of the Nation's Executive branch , then spreading laterally to the other branches of government, and finally when we cannot even trust the 'salt' to keep our food from getting bad [ as my Zen teacher,' cheeseburgerbuddha', politely puts it ], what have we? Datuk Abdul Aziz is certainly a glimmer of hope, a belated breath of fresh air. Or are we just being entertained transiently, pondering at a shimmering, mirage in the horizon?

The almost 'suffocated' raayats, thousands of simple people like me, at least this morning can be allowed to 'dream' about a Malaysia that was once here in the days of Tun Suffian, Tan Sri Harun Hashim et al when integrity and pride ruled higher than that ringgit sign, at all levels of administration.

Where is the wisdom we are talking about, when from whom we expect a generous fountain, just a trickle, flowed ?

I am reminded of that now famous, stiff upper lip, quotable quote from up north:

" I am not part of this. Let me finish my speech. If you want to continue to work with me in future, ask your people to sit down!"

Malaysia in 2009 need more than just admonishment like this to go forward, Tuanku. We need wisdom and a higher degree of sense of fairplay! Wisdom earlier on could have averted all these.
Daulat Tuanku.

NTR can pick his 'men' and win but as it is now he is already on too much 'excess baggage'. His whole plane will collapse in 2011 if the raayats anger and unhappiness snowballed.

If I were him I would consider Perak as a 'lost cause', and start afresh from there.The KLSE index is not doing too badly , so forget 'lost politics' and concentrate on the economy. If the economy improve ,people are going to forget the 'baggage'.Forget about that Mamak fellow Zambry who is beginning to think he is like Mandela!!!!!

They can cheat most people some of the time but most people are not dumb all the time!
