Anwar speaking in Bagan Datoh, Perak last night
Anwar Ibrahim has rejected criticism by BN politicians that he opted for a by-election in Permatang Pauh because it was a safe seat for him. He said he was willing to contest in any Umno stronghold including Kepala Batas, Abdullah Badawi’s parliamentary seat, which is just 15 minutes’ drive from Permatang Pauh.
He said he was confident that he could revive the Malaysian economy because he had received assurance from Saudi rulers that they would invest heavily here and uplift the local economy should Anwar and PR come to power.
Meanwhile, we have a new blogger in town – a certain former “coffee-boy” by the name of Saiful. I guess blogging can be a therapeutic way of dealing with his recent – how shall I put it – ‘trauma’.
