Chill lah, YBs. Away from the sodomy trial, buddies are butting each other. Politics, in and out of courts, must necessarily be dirty but I wish my bros YB Jeff Ooi, the DAP MP for Jelutong, and YB Wee Choo Keong, the PKR MP for Wangsa Maju, could somehow stay out of the current political sodomy fest. It's an unrealistic thing to wish for, though: both are Pakatan Rakyat strongmen in their own way and this fest involves their comrades, their bosses, and their political future.
BUT if they insist on slugging it out, I'd like to make an appeal to Wee not to resort to legal action in his attempt to shut Jeff up or defend himself. We should use the court for more dire matters, eg in the Wee vs Mbf case. Matters between friends should be resolved through friendlier means. Wee is not Theresa Kok, Zaid Ibrahim, or Lim Guan Eng and should not be inspired to be like them.
When Jeff and I were sued for our blog posts in Jan 2007, Mr Wee Choo Keong was the first to offer to act as my lawyer on pro bono basis. Jeff and Wee weren't MPs then. Jeff was an ordinary member of Gerakan.
