... that's what he is going to be, at the rate he has been stripped off royal awards! Of course, he has awards from other states which entitled him to be called Datuk, if I am not mistaken.
I have listened to his talk at Perak Academy when he was still with MCA. Impressive speech and even at that time, I felt he shouldn't be in MCA! A sister-in-law actually said once that she would join MCA, if he becomes President... but that was before the final tussle for the Deputy post, which he lost to Dr. Chua.
So far, I have heard good reviews from people who have worked with him when he was Health Minister, even though he was not a doctor but a lawyer. The post of Health Minister is known for bringing down a politician, and he was one of those victims. It is a post which comes with sleepless nights whenever there are epidemics of one kind or other... certainly ages a person fast!
I am glad he is now with PKR where he is much needed to share his ministerial experience, if and when Pakatan can achieve their ambitions. As I have mentioned before, there is a difference between jumping from Pakatan to Barisan (for obvious benefits) and vice versa (for a struggle for the benefit of the nation).
