Ahemm... (Now) 'I know
what you did last summer'

Jeff Ooi

December is summer for Australia, which lies in the southern hemisphere.

Last December, Johor -- the bastion of Umno -- had the worst floods since 1969, causing at least 17 deaths and damaging multi-million worth of laymen's properties and belongings.

Kota Tinggi, the constituency for Umno and Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar, was in deep waters coded Red Alert by the meteorological department.

Then, people were grumbling that our YBs were out of town, and the PM was engaged to open a nasi kandar shop in Perth, which was closed down swiftly months after.

The country was in remote control control mode, and Screenshots had a record of this.

Ten month had passed and only now do we know what our PM did last summer when Johor was in floods.

The testimony came from Datuk Seri Jean Todt, Datuk Michelle Yeoh's fiance, via The Star (Lifestyle, October 8, 2007):

“Sailing is something I need time for. Maybe in the future, I might go sailing in a boat. Last Christmas and during the New Year, I sailed on a boat with the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) in Australia and it was a great experience. I’m not an expert. I do follow the America’s Cup, but for me, racing cars is more exciting.”

Christmas 2006 and New Year Day 2007 coincided with the climax days of the Big Floods in Johor.

From money politics to moral politics, pardon the movie, now we know what you did last summer, Mr Prime Minister.
