Karpal used words, UNMO Youth used force and they really looked like some gangsters from behind the alleys. If you have seen one, you have seen all. Behave, be properly represented, state your case, not show of force. Don't be like in some countries, they beat up each other silly in Parliament, it is not our culture. "Jagalah maruah sendiri, budi bahasa budaya kita"
Pakatan Rakyat representatives N. Gobalakrishnan and Lim Lip Eng tried to protect Karpal but were roughed up by the Umno group members. Karpal eventually managed to make it into the Dewan Rakyat safely.
Also present outside the Parliament building was Gombak Umno Youth chief Megat Zulkarnain Omardin who told reporters that they are Umno members who are willing to die defending the party.

The Sultan’s private secretary Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani said the Sultan believed that whatever decision Khalid was going make, it would be done accurately, fairly and with wisdom.
He added that the decision would take into consideration the interest of the people of the state.
He said this in a statement released after Khalid had an audience with the Sultan at Istana Mestika at 8.23am Tuesday. He said Sultan Sharafuddin was concerned of late over cases of privacy rights intrusions being used to destroy a person’s dignity and reputation.
The Sultan also felt sad that a person’s private was being made through the use of the mass media and that he hoped that Wong would remain calm and be patient and continue with her life.
Wong tendered her resignation as exco member and PKR's Bukit Lanjan assemblyman recently, after some compromising photos of her were sent to the media.
The state and PKR have yet to accept her resignation and Khalid had said last week that the decision to accept or reject Wong’s resignation would be made only after an audience with the Sultan.

KUALA LUMPUR: The legal wrangle in Perak is best settled by going back to the people for an effective and definitive solution, said Bar Council president Datuk S.Ambiga.
“There is a reality on the ground that we must face. While we wrestle with these constitutional and legal issues, the legal actions are not the first and are unlikely to be the last.
“This does not provide an effective and definitive solution,” said Ambiga in a press statement.
The Bar urged all parties to seriously consider doing so, not only in the interest of Perak folks, but also in the interest of stability and the nation
“We do not know anything about the pictures and don’t think he would circulate those pictures,” said one of his friends who spoke on condition of anonymity. They last spoke to him on Saturday, and have been trying to contact Hilmi who is believed to be in Indonesia since Monday (three days ago).
The friends who described Hilmi as someone who is well-read and knowledgeable in politics were also disturbed with misleading reports on his personality. “The story that portrays him as an abusive person is only one sided. He has many times confided to us about his personal problems,” said a friend referring to a report in a Chinese daily accusing Hilmi of physically abusing the Bukit Lanjan assemblyman.
The 32 year old was an aide to PKR MP Hee Loy Sian for nine months before he quit the job in January.
Yesterday the police said they wanted to record a statement from Hilmi and have urged him to come forward to assist in investigations. Meanwhile Wong who has offered her resignation from all positions in the state today said she has left the country “to search for peace of mind to get away from the stormy events surrounding me”.
In a statement today she claimed that she has been informed that more sensational stories of her private life would be published. “I have also been told there will be a fresh assault, with more photographs and videos released and circulated in order to completely degrade and bury me,” said Wong. “This is the darkest episode in my life. I have never felt so alone, vulnerable and humiliated,” she added

“Despite having tendered my resignation from all posts, the media and websites continue to intrude into my private life and privacy."
“I have been informed by several media that they will continue to publish even more lewd graphical, sensational stories of my private life."
“Unemployment is rising, while corruption remains rampant. I wish public discussions would concentrate on these important issues rather than analysing my private life. My principles remains the same."
“I have also been told there will be a fresh assault, with more photographs and videos released and circulated in order to completely degrade and bury me,” she said in an e-mail on Thursday. "
She stated that public discussions should not be focused on her but on more important issues such as the coming serious economic recession that would be faced by the nation.
“I will not answer any question pertaining to my private life. My private life is not for public scrutiny as I have not broken any law or caused harm to anyone,” she said.
The other night while watching TV3 late news, I noticed that they put up Eli’s photo (face and shoulder photo) at the background for so long. Why not her usual photos?
I sure TV3 has alot of her well dressed photos in their archive. The victim gets the full blown exposure while the suspects gets the blurred faces. Mainstream medias are getting worst and idiotic.
Anwar also alleged that despite police reports, top government officials were deliberately taking no action. He told parliament how Lim Soo Nee, PKR’s state representative for Kulim agreed to be “bait” and worked together with the Anti-Corruption Agency (now called the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission) to secure evidence of alleged bribery attempts made by agents of Datuk Seri Mahadzir Khalid to entice a defection. Mahadzir is the former menteri besar of Kedah. Mahadzir’s agents were alleged to have offered up to RM5 million for a defection, Anwar claimed.
A CCTV recording was purportedly made of a meeting between Lim and Mahadzir at a hotel in Seberang Jaya at the end of last year. Anwar also showed a photograph of three bullets sent to PKR Bakar Arang state representative Tan Wei Shu. It was alleged to have been sent when Tan declined an offer to defect.
“I am going to show proof of blackmail in my parliament speech tomorrow,”
