I'm no hero, says PAS man who dared Dr M

Encik Ismail Wan Teh (pic right), the 42-year Jerlun Pas division deputy chairman, has been dubbed a hero.

The reason: He dared put a challenge to the former Prime Minister to take the lead in quitting Umno after Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had asked members to leave the party temporarily in protest against Umno President Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

But Ismail said he is no hero and he never intended to challenge or dare Dr Mahathir to make the first move.

He has been following Dr Mahathir's statements in the newspaper, and thought many people expected Dr Mahathir to make this move. It was a matter of time he did, he said.

"I am no hero," he said

On Dr Mahathir's announcement (leaving Umno), he said it showed him as a man of his word. --- (Read here.)

Rasuah Politik Pasca PRU-12?


Saya terkejut apabila semalam semasa perbahasan Usul Menjunjung Kasih Titah Ucapan Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di-Pertuan Agong di Dewan Rakyat, sahabat saya, Dato' Abdul Rahman Dahlan (BN - Kota Belud) menyatakan bahawa beliau telah ditawarkan duit dan jawatan Kabinet daripada pihak Pakatan Rakyat ("PR") untuk melompat parti.
