Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi has taken the meaning of the word – ‘cronyism‘ – to even greater heights. Talk about a super-bullet express gravy train.
Never mind the fact that Zaki Azmi leap-frogged from the stables of Umno to become a Federal Court judge (September 2007), and now head of the Appeals Court and the No. 2 judge in the country (December 2007).
Never mind the fact that Zaki Azmi hasn’t delivered any written judgement. (But it’s been established that he’s quite adept at sending SMSs)
Never mind the fact that there are many more senior and qualified judges on the bench.
Never mind the fact that he is a director of a number of lucrative companies, possibly making him the first multi-millionaire-judge in our illustrious history.
And let’s just put aside the fact that Zaki’s appointment is Umno’s F*U* response to all of us who yearn for our judiciary to be independent, as well as THAT episode known as ‘Aki, Baby & the Thai Kadi (in a Perlis Textile Shop)’.
What confounds me most is this.
He’s rather dim, up there. Why do I say that?
You see, anyone who torched his marriage certificate, thinking the act would dissolve a marital union, isn’t terribly bright.
It’s like BBQ-ing your IC, then going around telling people you are actually British.
This chap could well be our new Chief Justice, possibly, in a matter of months, as the newly-appointed CJ retires in April 2009.
If your daughters have been receiving between 30-100 SMSs/day, it’s time to activate your Defcon system. Hell, lock up your daughters. if you see them loitering around textile shops that come with an instant Kadi-Siam service.
Hold off filing that legal suit of yours.
And pray. Hard.
