A Second Johor Palace Spokesperson


The fool and the Sultan
Another UMNO fool made a boast when officiating the Kota Tinggi UMNO annual general meeting in Felda Lok Heng Timur on Friday. He had.claimed that the Johor Sultan had in so many words, indicated that he had faith in UMNO alone to unite the Malays.
Hmmm, the royals are supposed to be above politics. And yet, this party veep is so daring. Or as we Malaysians say, very action!
Fortunately, the Crown Prince of Johor would have none of it. And he lashed out at Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi for toadying up to his father.
“I do not support or side with any political party, I only support true leaders that serve the people with honor, transparency and full of integrity. Of late, many are seen to be trying to get close and be friends with H.M. The Sultan of Johor, which leads to all kinds of speculations and perceptions,” Tunku Ismail ibni Sultan Ibrahim said in a fiery message on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page.
And he warned Zahid not to attempt to give counsel to the Sultan for his own personal interests.
Zahid, go back to your crevice in the wall and hide there in shame – if you know how to feel shame, that is!
Last Wednesday, I received this handmade 'Thank-you' card from one of my DiBA students. A really touching gesture:
In this Scottish Premiership game, Celtic eased to a comfortable 3-1 victory over Dundee United on Saturday.
Leigh Griffiths raced away to slot in the opening goal in the seventeenth minute and home goalkeeper Luis Zwick was kept busy in a one-sided first half. DU's Mark Durnan turned the ball into his own net in the forty-fourth minute but fellow player Chris Erskine replied with a penalty one minute later. And then in the seventy-fourth minute, a deflected shot from Callum McGregor sealed victory for Celtic.
