Iskandar was one of the many guys who brush aside Eli's bad luck as anything to do with BN. At least he was less political than the Pakatan Rakyat number one. But why bring Eddie Chen in? I dont know, because businessmen seldom resort to such thing. Never heard.

Photographs and videos for now remain as the most effective of Anwar's political gimmick. Even though Lingam was properly dressed up, I dont think he like to be treated that way, at least it was bad for anyone to come in as guest , taping the host and release it to the whole world for some shrewd political mileage. Lingam too deserves some privacy.... haha.

By the way, has the spy cum videographer cum Yang Berhormat said anything in the House?

Lets see how the game will end.

Retract statement, developers tell exco member

Selangor state executive council member Iskandar Abdul Samad should retract his recent statement claiming that Elizabeth Wong may have been sabotaged by someone who was at the receiving end of her environmental crusade.

Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association patron Datuk Eddie Chen said Iskandar should make the retraction to “safeguard his reputation and good working relationship with developers.”

Iskandar’s statement on Wednesday had claimed the sabotage on Wong could be owing to her no-nonsense approach to environmental and other issues, leading to someone “framing” her by circulating her scandalous pictures.

Iskandar, among other things, said Wong might have stepped on someone’s toes as she played a prominent role in ensuring that the state government issued a blanket ban on hillside development in the state following the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide on Dec 6.

Chen said Iskandar’s statement implicating developers was simplistic and offensive.

We will never use dirty tactics to get what we want. Rehda is not a political party. We seek to change government policies through technical and professional arguments and by lobbying.

“We may have disagreements with YB Elizabeth, but we are willing to wait until we can convince the Government of safe slope development.

“We have numerous outstanding issues with Government, some 20 to 30 years old but we persevere through well-defined arguments, never through dirty tactics,” said Chen.
