Video – SAMY Facing his Final Countdown Defeat Slams at Hindraf; Despite Form irregularities allowed to Contest facing Dr Jeyakumar & Independant

UPDATE: (Samy is 50 yrs behind times), from Arab Times

Angry Indian voters could dump ruling party in elections

RINCHING, Malaysia, Feb 25, (AP): With a small knife, plantation worker Ramalingam Tirumalai makes raw incisions on the rubber trees every morning to harvest the oozing gooey latex. Just like the gashes on the trees, Ramalingam says, countless wounds have been inflicted by Malaysia's government on the country's ethnic Indian minority, denying them jobs, education, freedom of religion and most of all dignity. 'We have been independent for 50 years,' the stocky 53-year-old man said of his country, Malaysia. 'But there has been no change in the lives of Indians.' Seething anger among ethnic Indians is likely to singe the government during parliamentary elections on March 8. No one doubts that the National Front coalition, which has ruled Malaysia since independence in 1957, will return to power. But it is expected to fall short of its 2004 landslide, when it won 91 percent of the seats. Anything less than a two-thirds majority would signal plunging support for Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Voters are upset by rising prices and a surge in urban crime. Ethnic tensions are also at a high, largely because of the increasing influence of Islam in daily life.

'We need a new kind of leadership,' Ramalingam said in an interview near his plantation in Rinching town, about 45 kms (30 miles) from Malaysia's main city, Kuala Lumpur. The National Front is dominated by the party of the Muslim Malay majority, which make up 60 percent of the country's 27 million people. The Front also has the support of some ethnic Chinese, who are 25 percent of the population, and some Indians, who are eight percent.

Voted Indians have traditionally voted for the Malaysian Indian Congress, their party in the National Front. But now the Indians will 'definitely vote for the opposition,' said S. Nagarajan of the Education, Welfare and Research Foundation, a nonprofit group that represents impoverished ethnic Indians. 'This time there is raw anger.' Indian voters could make a difference in 62 of the 222 constituencies, said Denison Jayasooriya, a political analyst who specializes in Indian affairs. At the time of independence, most Malaysians were poor, regardless of race. An affirmative action program gives Malays preferences in university admission and government jobs, discounted homes and a mandatory 30 percent share of all publicly listed companies. The program lifted the Malay standard of living. The Chinese, already well established in business, continued to flourish. The Indians, however, remained at the bottom of the barrel.

The government denies discriminating against Indians, citing statistics that show the poverty rate among Malays is higher than for Indians. But analysts say the statistics are skewed because the Malay figure includes indigenous tribes that are extremely poor and not ethnically Malay.
Infuriated
Indians were also infuriated when municipal authorities destroyed several Indian temples last year because they were deemed to have been built illegally. The disenchantment exploded on Nov 25 when about 20,000 Indians demonstrated in Kuala Lumpur. Several smaller demonstrations have taken place since. Much of the anger is directed at Samy Vellu, head of the Malaysian Indian Congress party. He is perceived as corrupt and unable to bring about change for Indians. Campaigning last week, he was booed and pelted with eggs, shoes and sandals.

Samy (ABOVE) insists the government has done much to uplift Indians. 'It is not that the Indian community is 50 years backward,' he said. 'Maybe you minus about 40-45 years from the 50. They may be five years backward' compared to the rest of the population. About 85 percent of the ethnic Indians are descendants of indentured laborers brought by the British to work on rubber plantations in the 19th century. The work, where it remains, pays about 200 ringgit ($60; 40 euros) a month. Many plantations were turned into golf courses and luxury home communities in the 1980s and 1990s. The workers lost their jobs and the free housing and schooling that was included.

Other plantations were converted to palm oil, which does not require the skills of rubber tapping, and the Indians were replaced with Indonesian immigrants at lower wages. Most of the former Bukit Jalil rubber estate in Kuala Lumpur was cleared for stadiums and athlete housing for the 1995 Commonwealth Games.
Former workers still live on the last 16-hectare (40-acre) patch, which is slated to become a graveyard. The residents have been classified as squatters and offered two-room rental apartments in a nearby low-cost housing development. Their school and temple will be relocated inside the burial ground, a proposal that has incensed the residents. 'My age is 43 years. I have lived here for 43 years. How can I be a squatter?' said Shanti Vasupillai. 'All I am asking for is our rights.' 'Most probably the elections will be a shock for the government,' she said. 'I can promise you most Indians will vote for opposition this time.'

UPDATE:
Samy: MIC candidates must 'slog' to win Perai, Bagan Dalam

BUTTERWORTH (Feb 26, 2008): In his own words, MIC president Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu said today that MIC's Perai and Bagan Dalam candidates will have to "slog" to win the two seats. Samy who visited the two constituencies,which were won by the MIC's Datuk K.Rajapathy (Perai) and P.Subbaiyah (Bagan Dalam) in the 2004 general election said today they would have to go door to door to explain to the people. Rajapathy retained the Perai seat which has 36% Indian voters after beating DAP's Chong Eng with a slim 583 majority while Subbaiyah won the Bagan Dalam seat which has 22% Indian voters with a 1,967 majority after defeating DAP's Lim Hock Seng and Keadilan's Abdul Razak Abdul Hamid in 2004.
However ,with recent developments including the Hindraf protests, MIC's chances of retaining the seats with L. Krishnan contesting the Perai seat facing DAP's Prof Dr P.Ramasamy and Subbaiyah facing DAP's A.Tanasekharan, are threatened. Samy, who was visiting the two constituencies for the second time in two weeks announced several goodies for both constituencies, including a RM4 million allocation (RM1 million from state government and RM3 million from the Public Works Department (PWD) to repair eight lifts in six blocks of 21-storey Telok Indah flats which have malfunctioned for years. For the past few years, only four lifts have been in working order and despite numerous requests, the residents failed to get the problems resolved. Only last week, attempts were made to rectify the situation.

Samy said repair work on the lifts was already in progress and would be completed by this week. Asked about the chances of the candidates in the two constituencies, Samy said: "To win the election the candidates have to slog and MIC with other BN partners have to go house to house and discuss with them. "Even though I have contested the general election eight times, now for the ninth time, I still go house to house to see and talk to them to make them understand what needs to be done.
Subbaiyah and Krishnan can do work well, provided they see people personally.
"We have to work very hard, but I'm happy to say we have recovered from below 50% in Bagan Dalam. We are now getting higher and higher. This constituency (Bagan Dalam) is a bit different from Perai. Bagan Dalam is still quite good.
"Perai is recovering because whatever the people were complaining the other day have already been attended to, and I think now they can now look forward to see better things than before," Samy said, adding that attending to the residents grouses had nothing to do with the elections.
He said the construction of a RM4 million market for
Chai Leng Park would also begin soon, once the design was completed by his ministry. Asked if these efforts would help cool down the emotions of the Indian population in the two consti-tuencies, Samy said doing these things had nothing to do with their emotions.

"This has nothing to do with understanding the emotion of Indians or anyone. If someone is emotional, he is emotional and we cannot change his emotions. The emotion of a man can only be changed by himself not by others," he added.

Asked about the five Hindraf leaders under ISA detention in Kamunting, Samy said: "I don't know what you are talking about. I only know about BN and MIC and how to win the elections," he added. Earlier, Samy Vellu was again heckled by an angry crowd of Indians upon arrival in the area, but a tight police cordon, including the presence of Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) personnel, prevented any untoward incidents. Similar incidents have happened to Samy Vellu in recent months, including one in Butterworth last week when an angry group of people refused to allow him to leave a school premises in Butterworth and police had to be called in to clear the crowd. Samy was at Subbaiyah's service centre to have his lunch when the group of about 10 men and women tried to meet him. The group, shouting abuses tried to cross the road to the service centre but were prevented by the police. On police advice, Samy and his entourage left in a huff which even further infuriated the crowd which later dispersed after police advised them to do so.

Samy Vellu said the state government had allocated RM1 million while the federal government had come up with another RM3.5 million to repair the lifts. The government had also allocated another RM4 million to upgrade the Taman Chai Leng wet market.
Asked why the problems were only being attended to now, Samy Vellu said a decision to repair the lifts was made six months ago. However, he said the money was released by the Treasury to the local council before it was redirected to his ministry. “This was not something that could be done in a day or two. Nevertheless, the problem is resolved now,” he said. On the situation in other states, Samy said he was going all over to help MIC candidates in the campaign.

“I am spending one day in Sungai Siput and every other day elsewhere to help campaign for the other MIC candidates,” he said. “I am especially happy with the situation in Johor where the Menteri Besar had taken charge by helping out the MIC’s campaign.”

M'sian court rejects Hindu activists' freedom bid

KUALA LUMPUR - A MALAYSIAN court rejected a freedom bid by five Hindu rights activists being detained without trial after mounting an anti-discrimination protest, their lawyer said. 'The High Court rejected their application for freedom,' said Mr Karpal Singh who is representing the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) members who were detained under the Internal Security Act last December. Mr Karpal said the court on Tuesday threw out the defence argument that the detention was unlawful because there had been no 60-day investigation period beforehand. 'I think their detention has far-reaching consequences. You are placing dictatorial powers in the hands of the internal security minister,' he said.Hindraf infuriated the government by mounting a mass rally last November alleging discrimination against minority ethnic Indians in Malaysia, where the population is dominated by Muslim Malays.They are being held in the Kamunting detention centre in northern Perak state for an initial period of two years.

Police used tear gas, water cannon and baton charges to break up the Hindraf street protest which drew 8,000 people. Another lawyer S. Sivanesan said the detainees would on Wednesday file an appeal with the Federal Court, the highest court in the country. Hindraf members immediately condemned the decision and vowed to punish the ruling National Front coalition in March 8 general elections. 'We are clearly disappointed with the ruling. On the 100th day of detention (on March 22), Hindraf will organise a worldwide protest,' Mr P. Waythamoorthy, a brother of one of the detainees, said from London.

Hindraf coordinator R. Thanenthiran said many Indians would cast protest vote in the polls, which are expected to reduce the government's large majority. 'We will teach the Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi a lesson in the election. We will reject his government,' he said. Ethnic Indians, who make up eight per cent of the country's population, say they are disadvantaged in terms of wealth, opportunities and education.Muslim Malays, who make up 60 per cent, control the government while the ethnic Chinese, at 26 per cent, dominate business. – AFP

SMSes are floating around the last two days calling Indians NOT to vote MIC Candidates. They are no longer Credible.


Time is running out for Samy Vellu and he is in a state of despair. Right up to election time, he still cannot fathom the problems faced by his countrymen when he declared he would lead MIC's elected representatives on “a state-by-state visit to find out the problems on the ground after the elections”. In the meantime he questioned Hindraf motive when he said (listen to his words in the Video Clip”

“You want to finish up the MIC. After that who is going to be there? You are not a Political Party, you don’t have politics. You have a handful of 10,000 Indians with you all young people. What is your plan? What is the future for the Indians? What are you going to do for the Indians? Do you treat the sick people? Do you educate the Indian youths?”

To his dying days in politics, Samy is still unable to perceive the sufferings of the majority of the Indians living from hand to mouth in the lower rungs of society. And all this is his doing. In his efforts to help the community, he and his right hand men have helped themselves to the lion’s share of the little goodies that were given to them.
Samy your time is near, in a matter of days when the final curtain is drawn for you to exit shamefully. You can only hope to win on a single vote. You have finally sober up and realize the reality swelling on the grounds. It is the river of no return for you.

Monday February 25, 2008; STAR; MIC to woo 250,000 non-members
IPOH: The MIC will go all out to woo the more than 250,000 Indians who are not members of the party to vote for Barisan Nasional, its president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said. He said party members have been working continuously to identify the voters, and brief them. “We have 630,000 members, of which 65% are voters. We are confident they will support MIC candidates and Barisan,” he told reporters after submitting his nomination papers to contest the Sungai Siput parliamentary seat here yesterday. The 71-year-old Samy Vellu, who is also the Works Minister, will be facing Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) candidate Dr Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, who is contesting on a PKR ticket, and Independent Nor Rizan Oon. In the 2004 general election, which also saw a three-way fight, Samy Vellu defeated Jeyakumar by 10,235 votes. DAP's Sanmugam Ponmugam Ponnan was the third contender for the seat. On whether he was confident of a bigger majority this time, Samy Vellu said that even a win with a single vote was a victory.

“When I contested for the first time in 1974, I got a majority of only 626 votes. I worked hard and tried to meet the wishes of the electorate, and increased the majority in the next general election,” he said. Samy Vellu said the number of candidates fighting for the seat was not important but that attention should be given to the preparations undertaken by Barisan to win the full support of voters. On MIC’s chances of securing another 100% win in the nine parliamentary and 19 state seats it was contesting, he said a lot of hard work had to be done in three difficult consti-tuencies – Lunas (Kedah), Prai and Bagan Dalam (Penang).He said he would lead MIC's elected representatives on a state-by-state visit to find out the problems on the ground after the elections.

Samy Vellu Says He Is Leaving It To Voters
SUNGAI SIPUT, Feb 24 (Bernama) -- MIC President Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu who will be defending his Sungai Siput Parliament seat for the ninth term this coming elections, declined to comment on his chances of a bigger majority win at the three-corner fight for the seat. He said he was leaving it to the voters in the constituency to decide their selection of candidate. "We cannot show-off when we are a candidate in an area. We have to be modest and wait for their decision. I do not want to comment on the majority of votes at the moment," he told reporters after handing over his nomination form at the Kuala Kangsar Town Council, Sungai Siput division, here Sunday. The Works Minister will be facing Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM)candidate Dr D. Jeyakumar, who is contesting on the ticket of Parti Keadilan Rakyat, and Independent candidate, Nor Rizan Oon.

In the 2004 general elections which also saw a three-corner fight, Samy Vellu defeated Jeyakumar with a majority of 10,235 votes. DAP candidate, Sanmugam Ponmugam Ponnan was the third contender for the seat. Samy Vellu said the number of candidates fighting for the seat was not important but instead attention should be given to the preparations undertaken by the Barisan Nasional to win the full support of the voters in the area. Meanwhile, the Elections Commission received three protests from three individuals believed to be members of Party Socialis Malaysia (based on the T-shirt worn by them which spotted the word "Parti Sosialis Malaysia"). Two of them protested to the description of "Minister" as Samy Vellu's occupation in the nomination form. The other was a protest to Samy Vellu's date of birth which was different from the date of March 8 as previously reported by The New Straits Times paper. However, Election Returning Officer, Raya Mad Dan Hassan rejected all three protests. He said the registering of "Minister" in the application form was allowed to be used by the administration of the temporary caretaker government as provided under the Constitution. As for the date of birth, he said the EC took into account the date as given in the nomination form and not as reported by a newspaper.

EDITORIAL 8: MY TAKE - RIGHT HERE FROM KUALA LUMPUR, FEB 23, 2008
Samy is a Teflon Fat Cat with 9 Lives who can Fly through the Air in Sungei Siput. We need Rambo
A political satire by Casey Sze Tho
Move aside, Sylvester Stallone. As an aging Rambo at 61 all pumped up with growth hormones, you are not anywhere near our much admired Teflon Fat Cat, Samy Vellu. Our ‘adored’ wily cat may be 72 years old - he may look and sound old, but he is fitted with wings by Godfather Pak Lah to fly through air.

Nevermind if he rambles incoherently sometimes; it is his uncanny ability to deliver the Indian votes to Barisan that continues to make him such a reliable coalition trademark to have in the cabinet. And I am not talking of the kitchen cabinet, but the Malaysian Cabinet! In this cabinet this Fat Cat has outlasted 4 changes of furniture, 3 Prime Ministers, Zakaria Deros of Klang and the ‘close-one-eye MP’ from Melaka. We don’t call him a Teflon Fat Cat for nothing, Rambo!

Samy will again debut in his ninth movie, ‘ Die Harder Siput 9’ on March 8th in his favorite hideaway, Sungei Siput - God’s little green acre for a prancing cat. Here, this sturdy old cat can ‘meow-meow’ for a few more lifetime to come. And should an Indian God favor him – he has since stopped pulling down temples - he will still be around kicking dust up the nose of his enemies; even when you are 64, Rambo. Why? Because this smooth-talking Fat Cat is armored like a Tiger tank, triple-ply teflon-coated and armed with two iron balls, with wings like the American Baldhead Eagle. Being hairless is no liability, for it only makes it easier for him to glide through air to Sungei Siput given less wind resistance.

Fat Cat has been MIC President and Cabinet Minister for 29 years. He has brought down more Indian enemies with his silvery tongue than you have with your M 16s. At an age many may call you a grandfather, Rambo, our adored fat Cat - bald and half stumbling - can still summon more firepower from his numinous tongue than you can with all your knives, arrows and guns. Your brimming muscles are no match for his thick, wily tongue, seemingly the biggest muscle in his body. One small blast from this tongue - you’ll be gasping for air. Thousands have fallen to the ground when he opens his mouth; in his homeground of Sungei Siput, he is not stoppable, not even with silver bullets. Just listen what he yelled to reporters last week in every daily and you’ll tremble. He was quoted saying, “An army can come but I know how to fight it out. I will defend woh foong (Cantonese for Sungei Siput).” With Samy, you don’t play, play, Rambo. He takes no prisoners for when Samy speaks, a roar of thunder will come out from his mouth and bolts of lightning from his arse.

So Sylvester, you think if you produce four films as Rambo over twenty years, you can lay claim to the title of a ‘legendary hero’? Our Fat Cat has survived 8 battles in Sungei Siput and don’t even have a scar to show - not even a scratch to his teflon-coated skin and never once dropped a hair. What I tell you Rambo, you will find it hard to believe but this Fat Cat has held this territory without being nicked even once since 1974. Even more astounding is that he does not have to tear off his shirt like you do halfway through a movie to show his stomach to win. Bullets may be intended for him, but they always fly past him and hit another Indian behind. Such is his invincibility - when you see him on screen, Rambo, you’ll jump up the seat in absolute amazement and choke on dentures.

The Sun on February 21 had on its front page this headline: “MIC goes for new blood.” It went on to put in plain words that Samy is getting rid of 13 of the present incumbents for the state assembly seats because they have outlived their purpose. Samy says he has dropped Tan Sri Dr K.S Nijhar. Why? Nijhar is neither young nor old; worse he cannot meow like a Fat Cat. Samy may be old but only Samy is teflon –coated; only Samy has wings and only Samy can mesmerize Indians with gangster-like incantations, so that these small Indian cats will return again and again to eat from his paws. Ever since Maika’s misadventure in 1993, Fat Cat has a fistful of dollars, so he is ever happy to dole out to other smaller-sized cats that meows like him. One must learn how to meow in unison with Fat Cat or else you are rat meat.

Rambo you are a loner; Fat Cat has a gang. When you fight Rambo, you fight mostly alone. Fat Cat stretches out his paws and allows all the other smaller cats to fight, as if they are children squealing in Michael Jackson’s bedroom. Fat Cat watches and watches and smirks but it is others who get screwed, never Fat Cat.
.
When our powerful Fat Cat lifts up his paws, a thousand beguiled Indians will fall down at his knees and run ahead to take the bullets for him in any battle. Small wonder in Sungei Siput, Samy is like a kind of Indian God re-incarnated. That’s because he has the full support of everybody in Sungai Siput - he has built Tamil, Chinese and Malay schools, hospitals and community colleges. He has given every UMNO lapdog a kennel. He has fed every stray MIC cat a couple of good meals. He has ensured that every MCA ‘tai-koh’ can win a small lottery without buying one. More important, he has resisted building tolls there as he is understanding and gentle-hearted on the pockets of local residents, to which he affectionately calls ‘my siputs’. And he builds this fortress of his in Sungei Siput with only his bare paws, like a cat digging a shit-hole, never ever once pushing and pawing money around. That’s why after 8 elections, no other cat can mosey along the grounds of Sungei Siput without being neutered. Our Fat Cat rules in Sungei Siput simply because he is an unstoppable project-teaser with iron balls. You – Rambo, never build anything except latrines in the jungle.

And how does our Fat Cat do it, winning over and over again at every battle, Rambo? The secret is closely guarded, but he has an army of God-fearing Indians who are primed to poke razor-sharp skewers on their backs to pull his golden chariot anytime at his behest. It is now no more a secret, but thanks to Fat Cat, 950,000 Indians did infact turn up for the Thaipusam celebrations last month in Batu Caves. In this irksome battle with Hindraf, Fat Cat was very watchful of “naughty people”, who he claimed, armed with SMSes, were calling his army of Indian warriors not to turn up for the Thaipusam celebrations this year. But Fat Cat was so confident that he was quick to add that “I don’t think those people who want to pray to Lord Muruga will listen to the naughty people who sent the SMSes.”

What’s more, he was even more astute to also claim the day before Lord Muruga was due that “more than a million people are expected to be here but they will come at different times.” So you see, actually 950,000 people went to Batu Caves the night before but you cannot see most of them as they came out at different times. Honestly, I searched all the photos available but saw few Indians, so Fat Cat must be right, they must be coming out at different times.

Are there any other reason why all the Indians were invisible? What really happened to his legion of ardent supporters with whom I could not spot? A little bird flew up to me and whispered to me the other little known secret. This time around - because of the threat from the indomitable Hindraf - Fat Cat was careful to rub each Indian with the invisible ink that the Election Chairman pimped for him. That’s what made 950,000 Indians totally invisible, even under the bright street lights of Batu Caves. Then again, even less known is the fact that every Indian was instantly belly-filled when rubbed with this invisible ink because the ink is like manna from heaven. Although only 20,000 packets of free food were prepared this year, 950,000 Indians did battle for Samy on an empty stomach. They needn’t eat. The caretaker was so pleased with the savings this year that he threw all the leftovers onto the roadside as offerings for Lord Murugu, in addition to coconuts, so Fat Cat was doubly blessed. See, our Fat Cat can make other cats invisible and because if they are invisible they don’t need to eat – such is the might of the magic from our very own Samy Vellu. Can you stick barbeque skewers in your back, pull a chariot for a day and not eat? Bet you can’t, Rambo.

Even more astounding is how long these invincible inks can last. At the gathering in the Cheras Badminton Stadium on Jan 20 for MIC members to pledge their support to Pak Lah, another army of 15,000 invisible Indians turn up. Since the stadium could only accommodate about 8,000 at most, he got the rest of the 7,000 Indians to stand up on the heads of other Indians so that Pak Lah could see that all the Indians are all standing up roof high for him. You could not see because they were all rubbed with invisible ink. This type of illusion, Rambo, you cannot create, not even in your sleep.

Still, a week before that gathering there were rumors going around in the blogs that Fat Cat would pay $1,000 to anyone who could fill up a car of Indians and bring them to the stadium. It is all rubbish of course. Fat Cat is Fat Cat and he will tell you these allegations are absolutely untrue as he will not pay so little if he had to. Just you listen to what he said when the reporters asked him about Hindraf: “These fellows are madly doing things. We are fighting…many people thought that if they keep supporting them (Hindraf) they might get RM1 million. …I can also say it if you support me I can give you RM 2million…”

So Rambo, my Fat Cat is not used to talking small money; he talks big, big money. If your English is not so good, you may not understand what he really meant. What he could have meant was if Hindraf can get the Queen of England to pay every Indian RM 1 million, he can give every Indian RM 2 million. When I read the news report to my wife, she asked me to quickly darken my skin, change my name and report to General Samy in Sungei Siput immediately.

She was also quick to admonish,“ bow down and kiss his hands as you approach him but don’t bend so low as to embarrass him.”

“Don’t bend so low? “Why?”

She rebutted: “ so that he will also not bend so low to receive you and drop his toupee.”

I said, “got toupee, meh? I thought it was hair transplant he got in the 1990s and each and every hair is real?”

She replied,“ He is teflon three-ply coated. He’s got such a strong resolve in his head, it is actually prick proof. Hairs cannot be stitched in because his thick skin cannot be penetrated. The best he can do each morning is put a patch on, squeeze some UHU in-between and pray it is not windy when he steps out of the house.”

This is something you cannot do Rambo. You have too much hair. You are frighteningly hairy. But Fat cat is bald frighteningly.

No yarn about Fat Cat can be complete without restating that his most dangerous enemy today is without doubt Hindraf. In New Dehli, a blurred ‘sotong’ reporter, A Letchumanan asked Samy about the threat from Hindraf. Fat Cat was quick to point out that Hindraf “is not a registered body or a union… we don’t go to the streets to demonstrate…a demonstration by 10,000 people does not mean the country faced unrest. Unrest means the whole community getting together and causing problems. This is not happening”. You see Rambo, 10,000 Indians do not make a summer. But 950,000 invisible ones can cause a winter.

Then back in Kuala Lumpur last Saturday, Hindraf supporters blocked his car in Prai and nobody understood why. Fat Cat claimed they only “ asked me to tell Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah to release the 180 people detained for taking part in the illegal assembly in Kuala Lumpur. They did not talk anything about politics. This does not indicate that they hate me.”

Of course they don’t hate you. They are only out there to mob an Indian star from Bollywood and want a strand of your toupee for remembrance. The next time, bring a spare.

Even more bewildering is that by his own admission Fat Cat claims that the enemy exists only because of him. On the front page of the Sun on Thursday Feb 21, Fat Cat was reported to have said that “Hindraf is because of me, everything they do is because of me. Only because of me everything has happened in this country.” Now you can claim anything you like, Rambo. You can claim you bombed 10 villages and shot down or arrowed 300 somnolent soldiers in any movie. But you cannot claim to invent the enemy. Only Fat Cat can.

Still, there was another conflicting report out of the STAR on February 20. Fat Cat was reported to have said that “if the Indian community decided that they did not want him he was prepared to go even now.” He said, “ I am prepared but that decision must be made by the Indian community and not by outsiders because I represent the Indians in the government.”

With that statement, even I was totally stumped, Rambo. For none of the constituencies MIC is contesting – including Sungei Siput – has a clear Indian majority. So if Samy loses in Sungei Siput, will this teflon wily old cat turn around and say actually all the Indians voted for him but the non-Indians did not and that’s why he lost? Truly an amazing story I tell you, Rambo. Your Rambo sagas all have no twist at the end. The kind of story twist Fat Cat can conjure, he can be a top dog writer in Bollywood after his retirement.

Finally, Fat Cat said that he would hand the party to his deputy when the time comes. “ I will give way at the opportune time. If I leave the party now, the party will be in disarray. It is not that I wish to go on for another 100 years. Everyone has a time to go.”

Too bad, Datuk G Palanivel. He has no wish to go on for another 100 years; nay not even 50 years; nay not even 25 years, just 10 more years will do. By then Rambo, you will be 71 but Fat Cat will only be 82.

You’ll be slow, haggard and probably crabby. But Fat Cat will still be prancing around his delicate paws and purring his soft meow meows to another Prime Minister, long after your growth hormones have ceased to work and you turn bald.

Fat Cat? He’s never bald. Have toupee, will fight.

Meow, meow.
