Royal Roast for Big-mouth Puad Zarkashi

Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Tunku Ibrahim sternly scolded UMNO Supreme Council member Mohd Puad Zarkashi (left) for being a big mouth. The latter had brazenly passed himself off as a Johor Palace spokesperson.
On Saturday, he had gone on record to pronounce that all is well between Prime Minister Najib Razak and the state's sultan. Puad had supposedly wanted to dispel purported rumors on social media that both parties were not on good terms.
Puad’s statement followed a picture of Najib and Sultan Ibrahim at Singapore’s National Day on August 09, 2015 going viral on social media. It showed the PM and his wife Rosmah Mansor walking past the Sultan and his son, Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail.

"Do not make any speculation as to whether there's a problem or not between (the sultan) and the prime minister, as only the sultan and I know the whole story of the said matter,” the crown prince said on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page on Sunday night.
While the Johor sultan's thoughts on Najib are not public knowledge, Tunku Ismail has been vocal in expressing his concerns on the deteriorating Malaysian political situation; in fact, making subtle inferences to Najib.
After Najib wielded the axe and Muhyiddin Yassin (then deputy prime minister) became one of his victims, the Johor palace took a keen interest in developments in UMNO. Muhyiddin, who was former Johor menteri besar, was subsequently summoned for an audience with Sultan Ibrahim.
Christian Benteke's controversial winner on his Anfield debut ensured Liverpool maintained their 100% start to the new season with an unconvincing 1-0 victory over Premier League newcomers Bournemouth.
Liverpool's £32.5m summer signing from Aston Villa turned home from close range in front of the Kop after 26 minutes – but if you had seen the match, Philippe Coutinho was clearly offside as he also tried to reach Jordan Henderson's cross.
I suppose a win is still a win, deserving or not.
