|Will there be one for him?
Awkward, Guan Eng.
The Penang Chief Minister's reference to Turkey when talking about Anwar's January 9 sodomy D-day could not have been worse timed. The Penang chief minister seems to have wanted to draw a parallel between Anwar and a Turkish Prime Minister who made a comeback from prison to become PM. But what he has achieved is only to remind us, the rakyat, of a time of great theatrics when Anwar fled to the Turkish Embassy in Kuala Lumpur claiming that his life was in danger. This incident happened on June 29, 2008 after Saiful claimed that Anwar had sodomized him.Read the BBC report here.
And exceprts from Guan Eng's Turkish delight:-
"...Pakatan Rakyat akan ambil contoh negara Turkey. Pemimpin negara tersebut kerana dipenjarakan tidak dapat bertanding, tetapi parti yang beliau pimpin menang dalam pilihan raya, selepas itu mereka gubal perlembagaan dan beliau dapat keampunan dan dibebaskan, selepas beliau dibebaskan, beliau bertanding semula kerusi, akhirnya menjadi perdana menteri."
