Taib Mahmud in a room in House of Lords

Technically speaking, the Sarawak Chief Minister did speak at the House of Lords – but it appears to have been in a room down a corridor.

Not quite the image many had in their minds. Blog reader Sean took the initiative to write to the House of Lords about the visit.

According to him, the House of Lords replied:

Thank you for your email.

The Information Office does not keep records of events organised by individual Members of the House. It does, however, look like this video was recorded in a room of the House of Lords.

I am sorry that I cannot be of more help.

Please help to support this blog if you can.

like ur mr I am sometimes also known as……..

guess you can’t wait to jilat taib’s shoes yeah?

The MACC should investigate Sarawak Chief Minister for his (or his family’s) enormous wealth & assets here and abroad.
So long as the Police and MACC is under the control of … politicians we all have a very serious problem of rampant corruption,where billions are (whittled away) through cronies and hidden accounts.
Just image a corrupt,racism and ISA free Malaysia !

fedup

Taib is probably there to establish some personal relationships just in case he has to pack up and leave S’wak. He will need an asylum somewhere, where better that the UK. After all, he probably thinks he is british! He (may) want a title of sorts that’s valid in the UK, probably a Lordship!… In the UK the upper house i.e. the house of lords is not an elected body of representatives by the people but a bunch of lords and ladies with peerages which taib is probably keen on! Afterall, one can buy these titles in the UK. His… Read more »

Brother, so you tak siok la Anil highlighted the plight of the Penans, how they had been exploited in their very own land, how they suffered as natives and how the school children were raped, these are all REAL happenings and not just alleged facts, they HAPPENED right in front of the nation’s eyes, how can Anil, being an upright person (i believe) not reporting all these evil deeds in Sarawak. As a human, how can you be so unhappy about all these reportings ? You may not care about the natives and their sufferings but the rest of us… Read more »

Let us be clear about the different between PR and BN policies. PR leaders do not tolerate or are against corruption or abuse of power. Meanwhile, BN are using Judiciary, Police… to try to benefit themselves to the fullest and their top leaders are all in it as well. Only a minority in BN top leaderships are clean. In contrast PR majority of the top leaderships are clean and maybe some are dirty. So, I am surprise if PR supporter and those on the fence cannot differentiate that. If you want to get rob in the day light choose BN… Read more »

“Let us be clear about the different between PR and BN policies.”

Okay, I am listening.

“PR leaders do not tolerate or are against corruption or abuse of power.”

Are you sure?

Lim Guan Eng certainly is not doing that.

A. Lim Guan Eng (sells out) our Botanical Garden for a mere 7 million ringgit to the FED for them to erect all thsoe ugly concrete structures.

B. Lim Guan Eng tried … to usurp 50 million ringgit of Penang taxpayers’ money by building his ~PICC~ white elephant.

Pearl we have apparently bought a submarine that doesn’t submerge! Would you like to talk about that as well?

In all fairness, i have to admit that i am displeased with the DAP Selangor issue as well. It is not good for party image if it projects itself for CAT. It must practice this upfront in the open as well. If it is true, put a fair hearing and communicate the decision to the public (can’t do it behind door now since its out in the open). If the evidence says it’s not true, fine. People will accept it. Otherwise, so long as it drags on, it’s a stain on DAP Selangor.

Thanks for speaking the truth. You are one of the rare PR supporter that never support any corruptible practice in PR.

Ahmad Syafiq

A person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. BRING ON THE INVESTIGATIONS! Let this issue be solved fairly (which is, the guilty party gets charged). Some of the documents have been released on the Malaysia Today (RPK) website (by a certain Pakatan Insider). You can take a look at it Gerakan K.

No matter what, I only have one party in my heart, which is PAS. The state government led by PAS is doing well at the moment. KEDAH SEJAHTERA.

Gerakan K

It is my wish too that Kedah and the whole Malaysia sejahtera.

Ahmad Syafiq

Now we’re talking on the same page. Regardless of who is helming the state government, it’s time to put aside partisan politics and be supportive regardless of whether BN or PR is the government. I mean, supportive not as in not criticising. Criticise, yes, but constructive. Give them a guide on how to solve the problem. In the issue of Taib Mahmud, we must all remember, he (or his family) has plenty of assets abroad, and that is already blatant enough without the MACC investigating. Ever wonder why Sarawak is the poorest state in Malaysia despite it being rich in… Read more »

LOL!!!!! private use of “a room of the House of Lords”. So what does that mean? And where did Taib’s friends pluck those women from?

I like this blog it high lighted the true picture what is happening to Sarawak. People should learn more of the evil BN making huge money out of the the natives of Sarawak. The worst thing to happen is depleting the forest/

Gerakan K

How about the alleged evil act by DAP ??? Close one eye ???

Pearl

G, Mr. Anil is just one person. He needs help to identify and unearth the unpleasantries by DAP.

The many machais who are so ferocious defending Lim Guan Eng are not making Mr. Anil’s job any easier.

Would you, G, kindly lend your hand to Mr. Anil to unearth as many unpleasantries from the DAP as possible, please?

ghkok

The task of “unearthing many unpleasantries from DAP” has already been taken by the Star newspaper. The very well-funded and well-protected newspaper. No need for others to undertake the dirty job. We should publish those things which the mainstream media fails to, refuses to, afraid to or unwilling to, report. That’s justice. That’s balance.

Hello brother Gerakan K, can i politely ask you, who are you to question Mr Anil what he can report and what he cant? Yes, a reader also said he/she was “disappointed” over Anil’s posting on Jho Low’s affairs with Paris… I would say, Anil please report whatever is of interest. In fact, i thank you for that reporting!!! Wah! You guys are dictating on Anil what he can report and what he cant!!! Are you guys the bosses of Anil? Paying Anil’s salary? Anil, let them be disappointed, who cares? Who they think they are that you are to… Read more »

Gerakan K

Do you think it is normal for Anilnetto to do open (criticism) of CM of Sarawak and close one eye on DAP alleged scandal ???

Please check again the true meaning of “independent” in your favorite dictionary.

Ahmad Syafiq

Hold your horses Gerakan K. The case of Taib Mahmud is so blatant that it is obvious he is building wealth abroad in case Malaysia falls to PR in the next GE. And why Anil hasn’t reported the case about the DAP councillor is that he needs to assess the facts at hand first and add any new information that will be disseminated in the next few days. After gaining enough evidence and convinced about the clear cut case, then he’ll report where it is due. Even if Anil doesn’t report about it here, you can always go to Malaysia… Read more »

Anil;

Woh! Spoilt child frying foul…
Anil, you need not be bothered with this cherry picker, I am sure you sleep well!

Gerakan K’s latest strategy is called

“shooting the messenger”

(since he/she has great difficulty rebutting the message) 🙂

Silly English old maids and an old man trying to feel important/relevant before he goes to see his maker makes this thing look like a silly English comedy…

Dear Anilnetto, this is my complaint for your writing, look at your recent articles. Almost all about CM of Sarawak [1] Taib Mahmud at the House of Lords (http://anilnetto.com/europe/taib-mahmud-at-the-house-of-lords/) [2] UK Parliament’s website silent about Taib’s visit (http://anilnetto.com/europe/uk-parliament-website-silent-about-taibs-visit/) [3] UK all-parliamentary group chief writes to Taib (http://anilnetto.com/accountability/uk-all-parliamentary-group-chief-writes-to-taib/) [4] Live – Protest in Oxford as Taib Mahmud arrives (http://anilnetto.com/civil-society/protest-at-oxford-gets-underway/) [5] British NGOs to hold protest at Oxford U (http://anilnetto.com/accountability/british-ngos-to-hold-protest-at-oxford-u/) [6] Sleepless in Sarawak; restless in Oxford (http://anilnetto.com/accountability/sleepless-in-sarawak-restless-in-oxford/) [7] Taib: “Most successful CM since Independence” (http://anilnetto.com/accountability/taib-most-successful-cm-since-independence/) [8] Taib Mahmud invited to Oxford University (http://anilnetto.com/accountability/taib-mahmud-invited-to-oxford-university/) [9] Sarawak Pakatan agree straight fights for polls… Read more »

Aa well, criticism is just part of the job dear Anil. I guess Gerakan K is only happy when you criticise PR, but not so happy when you criticise BN. He’s bias, I’m happy with you criticising either side. Besides, many people can be quite bias like Gerakan K (that is, happy when BN is criticised, angry when PR is criticised, or happy when PR is criticised, angry when BN is criticised). IT’S NORMAL.

As long you are independent, we will respect your views on issues relevant to us all.

Huda

Way to go Anil. 🙂

If I need to plant a mole somewhere, I’ll be sure to get in touch with you.

sunnyooi

Anil, if ur smart take from all sides. Hehehehe….. Gerakan dont focus on issues, only who his masters are. Not the kind you want to impress.

Huda

Oh Anil, don’t be modest. We know how cunning you are.

Sean

Perhaps there are more such accusations on the way:

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/counter-opposition-with-new-media-urges-chua/

The story seems familiar – did the last call fall on deaf ears?

Ong Eu Soon

Anil,
Keep up the good work. (Criticise) both BN and PR, if needed to sink both of them, do it. If both side don’t care and think that they can lord over us when they are in power, vote them out!

Pearl

There is a problem with your scenario.

How to “vote them out”, both of them?

Unless Mr. Anil wants to become our new PM.

What do you think a blog is for? To please your political masters? To polish shoes of wayward politicians? To tell lies and assumptions when the truth is so obvious? To spite a personality without facts but fancies? To threaten others with foreboding? To create ‘noises’ irritating other commentators? To call names like ‘machais’? To order the blogger what to blog and what not to? Anil, you contribution as an alternative media is invaluable and commendable. In these days of biased, distorted reporting by MSM, we need a more balanced, factual, up to date, accountable but fearless, fanciless, unassuming and… Read more »

But that is what you and other machais have done, for Lim Guan Eng !

Hi Anil, That means you are doing the right thing ! Ok, in my opinion, the so-called “independent journalism” cannot exist in Msia as long as the Printing Presses and Publications Act (PPPA) and other draconian laws like ISA, etc continue to exist in this country. The newspapers, TV, radio in this country continue to be controlled by the BN parties. Therefore, in this current situation, the primary role of Internet media/blogs in Msia must be to CORRECT and BALANCE the weight of news and publications. By implication, it means that the Internet community should give MORE airtime to opposition… Read more »

I think its fantastic that you’ve been focusing on the Sarawak CM =) keep up the good work!

datosirseri

Gerakan K has the brain of a …, the IQ of a doorknob. What Anil’s postings do in respect of Taib are not about DAP or Gerakan. They are about how a salaried employee of the State, supposed to serve the people who “elected” him, can, it is alleged, amass a veritable fortune… They are about accountability, corruption, issues which affect the ordinary Malaysian. They are about how the man has failed to better the lives of Sarawakians…

Alam

Hey Gerakan K

What’s your problem? If you want the typical news like Utusan and NST, go to mainstream press or RTM/TV3. Let Anil do the alternative news that thsoe mainstream media chose to ignore.

Wonder why you still like the name that spells useless.

He may a well go back and build more up to date long houses instead of finding the house of the lord.

wandererAUS

With the (wealth) he has in his possession, he was made, “Lord of the House”…one for the photo album!!

When will MACC investigate the CM?

Pearl

Investigate for what?

No one lodge any complaint against that Taib how can MACC go investigate?

You want to be the first to file a complaint against that guy, you be my guest.
