Monday 16th. July, 2018.
At last, more than two months after the dust settled over the last GE, the 14th. Parliament finally opens.
Almost straight away the UMNO MP's started to try and behave the way the opposition is, in their minds, supposed to behave - they staged a walk-out.
Mahathir just smirked and said, "they're learning".
Just as quickly, everybody, including poor Najib, trooped back, for the swearing ceremony. No allowance would be paid unless the MP's have sworn in. Mahathir might just postpone forever the next swearing in. "Cash is king" after all.
The UMNO "experts" picked on "procedure" when contesting the appointment of the Speaker. They were just out-voted 131 to 90 (Sri Kandi had died recently).
I can't wait to see Najib locking horns with Mahathir in person at last. Najib had been calling the old man all kind of things imaginable, including some quite unimaginable. Let's see if Najib is as quick on his feet as the Old Fox. Najib had said "who in the world wants to make this 93-year-old man Prime Minister!" Who indeed.
Rosmah, meanwhile, has been busy cooking up that cock-and-bull about the non-existent Dubai jeweler sending a couple of billions worth of diamonds and stuff by post, for personal viewing before purchase. This fantastic couple must be living in their own drug-driven fantasy to think that any idiot would believe this story. Anyway, the goods are about to be confiscated by the Customs for non-declaration! Swallow that, kak Mah!
By the way, the new Speaker is an old Budak Boy of RMC, my alma mater. He's even from my old Company - "B".
