Beware of "False" Perception.

Our Prime Minister has earned a reputation as "the father of announcement" (Bapa pengumuman) for the reasons being he had a habit of announcing a certain project, policies or government actions but then soon after the announcements the thing becomes a NFA (no further action).

The classical case was his announcement of 18 big sharks to be netted after the 2004 general election. The announcement then was parroted by the then Law Minister Hon. Rais Yatim. After the announcement - a big shark, the late Chairman of Pewaja was acquitted . Hon. Rais Yatim was then transferred to some ministry to take care of "cultural dancing" and "old buildings". So we had learned. . . . beware of perception, let us see the latest announcement on ACA and Judicial review - will not be another NFA.
