On checking my little kamus of Oxford dictionary, ‘maverick’ also means an undisciplined person.
Maybe Malaysiakini knows something about Theng Bok that the public do not?
Anyways, I was surprised at a Merdeka minum-minum session yesterday when a friend who happened to be an MCA Central Delegate (CD), asked me if I heard of rumours that Theng Bok is using the Save MCA campaign as a front.
“Huh? What front? Isn’t it to save Chua Soi Lek?” I asked.
“You, ah. So straight. Never question, one. Always take at face value what newspapers analysts write. When are you going to learn to read between the lines, friend? Aiyoooooo,” said CD while shaking his head disapprovingly.
Eager to shift his disapproval elsewhere, I soothed him. “Why do you think he has an ulterior motive?” I asked.
“You think Theng Bok is so selfless, meh? Think! The last time he ‘saved MCA‘, Ong Ka Ting got booted out. Why?”
“Please tell? I’m really lost now.” said I, defeated.
CD rolled his eyes towards heavens and got himself together. “Benefits, my friend.”
“Aiyooooo. Got people do something for nothing, meh?” “Theng Bok is a lawyer, right?”
“Theng Bok is having lots of construction developer friends wanting clearance for this and that from ministries. The minister don’t give, he’s in shit la, deal cannot get done, no approval, no money in, understand?”
“Last time minister no give, this time also no give, he’s more in shit, business more worse, developer friends no more confidence in him, his cable tak boleh pakai, lor,” CD made a thumbs down sign.
“But Theng Bok said its for MCA he is saving.”
“Ceh! Where got people do something for nothing?” CD exclaimed.
“Got people sponsor a campaign for him to get famous and can somemore help get back his developer friends confidence, like luck falling from the sky, lar.”
P/S: I think Theng Bok should quickly make an SD (Statutory Declaration) to save himself. Cannot do like Andy Lau hiding under those umbrellas. And its very ungentleman to take advantage of Chua Soi Lek’s predicament.
