Raja Petra Bailed Out

Just as well no one took me up on my offer of betting for high stakes as to when Raja Petra Kamarudin would walk out of jail after being bailed out.

I'd be significantly poorer.

And I probably owe that ole coot an apology. Because it takes guts to walk into a Malaysian jail under the "watchful" eye of the humane policemen who come under the payroll of Barisan Nasional.

I remember what Anwar Ibrahim looked like. And Lim Guan Eng, Karpal Singh, Lim Kit Siang and the rest who suffered in the hands of our police. Including Nathaniel Tan.

I'm glad he's okay.

And it was good to hear from him though no apologies necessary - he has not let us down one bit and we're utterly proud of him for his courage and moral stand.
