Anwar's Letter is Timely

A letter purportedly from jailed PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim was made public on Monday, advising party leaders to be wary of their alliance with former PM Mahathir Mohamad as his Citizens’ Declaration was “defective and incoherent viewed in the context of reform.”
 
In the letter, Anwar said the “Save Malaysia” movement must be rooted in reforming the country and not focus on advancing private interests.
 
UMNO leaders had already accused Mahathir of seeking Najib Razak’s ouster in order to make his son, Mukhriz Mahathir, the prime minister.
 
I agree with Anwar – we must not trust Mahathir. He is definitely not the best person to lead the campaign for political reform.
 
Pakatan Harapan must beware!
 
On Sunday, Ronny Deila's last game as Celtic manager ended in an annihilation of a bewildered Motherwell in Glasgow.
 
The Scottish champions scored three in the first half through Kieran Tierney (21), Tom Rogic (26) and Mikael Lustig (28). And they got another four in the second from Stuart Armstrong (50), Patrick Roberts (54), Ryan Christie (59) and from substitute, Jack Aitchison (77).
 
Goals a-plenty in a match with nothing at stake.
 
Anyway, Celtic were presented with the Scottish Premiership trophy at full time.










 
And Liverpool and West Brom scored a goal each in an EPL match on the same day too.
 
The latter took the lead when Jonathan Leko skipped free to tee up Salomon Rondon for an emphatic low finish in the thirteenth minute. The Reds responded in the twenty-third minute through Jordon Ibe's fine run and shot. And after that, neither side could break the deadlock.
 
Liverpool must win the Europa League final to secure European football next season as the 1-1 draw ensured only an eighth-place finish.
 
I was in Lorong Maarof in Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur to attend the KL Advanced Toastmasters meeting.
 









 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
After the brouhaha over speaking slots, there were only two speakers on Monday. What a joke!
