Updated: Hishamuddin Hussein has officially, if unwittingly, confirmed what was before this a "sources story" about PM Najib Razak's invitation to his Cabinet ministers who are not with him to resign. The Umno VP, Defence Minister and Najib's cousin did this via the above tweet earlier in the day.
This conditional support for Najib, which is what the tweet is essentially, has put Hishammuddin in a bit of a spot. One obeserver says it's as if Hisham is hedging. "He could have spoken up and spelled out those conditions during the Cabinet meeting but he did not. Why?"
Wallahualam, but RPK, the man this posting is originally about, thinks Hisham will have to quit (Hisham's last 48 hours as a Minister). But where would he go? Ikatan?
Pak Tam left a single liner in my comment box yesterday:
Can you believe RPK?
I responded with a one-liner too:
Do you believe the Sarawak Report?
I owe Pak Tam a little more than that one liner. I don't know who Pak Tam really is (it's a pseudonym, with means he's an Anonymous like 90 per cent of commenters in blogosphere still are, for reasons best known to them) but RPK we have known for many years, through his ups and downs, our highs and lows: as a Free Anwar Campaign champion, as the ISA detainee, as a Dr Mahathir chronicler during the vs Pak Lah era, as someone close to Ku Li, as a friend, as an Anwar champion once again just months before the 2008 general election, as a human rights movement leader-in-exile with my ex-lawyers Haris Ibrahim and Maliq Imtiaz, and as a Malaysian-in-UK who seems to be sympathetic towards PM Najib Razak now.
Do I believe him? I know he's got deep throats in the government (of Malaysia) and in the Opposition despite being thousands of miles away. The story he broke Najib asks his Cabinet members not with him to resign was also reported by Utusan Malaysia h e r e. The sources for Malaysiakini, Malaysian Insider, The Rakyat Post and all the other credible and incredible news portals have not said otherwise.
Most of us, Pak Tams and all Anons included, have made up their minds whether they could believe RPK or not.
Question is, still, do you trust the Sarawak Report?
