But when the BN government suddenly decides to pin some obscure sounding charge of corruption on Lim Guan Eng, then it ignites my sympathy for the man.
I can tell it's a conspiracy. Not just because the government has suddenly become ultra efficient.
Not just because they imitate the clown-effect that Fahmi Reza perpetuated rather successfully on Najib. Fahmi has come out to deny that the clown was his work.
This is the same thing that happened to Anwar Ibrahim.
The BN government is pathetic.
For what it's worth, here is some LGE for you, taken from Malaysiakini:
I will not submit to such dirty and vicious political plays to destroy my reputation or Penang’s image as the cleanest and best-run state in Malaysia.
We are proud of our open competitive tenders and proud of our accolades from Transparency International and the annual Auditor-General’s Reports.
We will not allow BN to throw mud to hide its own corruption scandals. We will prove our innocence in court.
We will fight to prove that the Pakatan Harapan government is a people-centric government that upholds its principles of integrity, justice, freedom and democracy.
There is still hope for a Malaysia that is clean and free from corruption, abuse of power and oppression. We must not allow BN to steal our children’s future as they have stolen ours.
What type of country do we want our children to grow up when those who gained benefits and donations amounting to billions of ringgit are not charged with corruption while those who gained no benefit are prosecuted for corruption?
BN can prosecute me but it will not kill my passion to free Malaysia from corruption.
BN can victimise me but will not crush my spirit to free Malaysia from those who steal our children's future.
BN can even humiliate me by unnecessarily detaining me overnight but will not succeed in changing white to black and black to white. Right cannot become wrong and wrong cannot become right.
BN will not break my party's unity – we stand together as leaders and members to battle for reforms towards a better Malaysia with freedom, justice and democracy.
If BN feels that they can bend or break me by arresting me, they are wrong! I will die standing (rather) than live on bended knees. A free Malaysia, a fair Malaysia, a prosperous Malaysia for all is worth fighting for!
