When I heard about the latest video tape allegedly of adhoc Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim having sex with a Chinese prostitute in a Kuala Lumpur hotel room, I mentioned that whoever was responsible must have hired the same team that filmed a certain MCA leader in action some years back.
"No, the video quality is much better this time," a colleague said. So it must have been a different team using latest-generation and higher-definition cameras.
Obviously, the viewing session organised by Datuk T at Carcosa Sri Negara on Monday for a select group of top editors from print and online media has a political purpose - to kill the political career of Anwar and to sabotage the chances of Pakatan Rakyat doing better in the coming Sarawak state election.
Everyone is pointing the finger at the Barisan Government for the dirty trick, but the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has denied the involvement of the police (or, presumably, the Special Branch).
I have actually heard two versions of the story - one story has it that it was another trap set up by the people in power and Anwar unwittingly or wittingly walked into it; the other story is that he was set up by his enemies within his own party with the aim of getting rid of him and his wife and taking over control of PKR.
Whatever the case may be, Malaysians from both sides of the political divide are frankly not that bothered about who the plotters are but are more eager to know when the tape would be uploaded on YouTube.
