Something's brewing for this man

Of late, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, ertswhile MP, member of the Cabinet, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department and Chairman of the Dewan Rakyat's Human Rights Caucus appeared to be a changed man. And why not? It augurs well for everybody to have a BN MP bold enough to speak up for the good of the people, to get down to real and proper business and being busy enough not to waste his precious time conducting only monkey business. Maybe some of his recalcitrant colleagues would want to take a cue from him and spruce up their own image with the rakyat by making better use of their position and time as elected representatives. Goodness knows we need more Members of Parliament with the balls to carry out our Prime Minister's election promises.

Today's news focus on Nazri has given this guy a fresh opportunity to clean up his image and re-brand himself as the good guy to watch out for in the generally not so good reputation of BN MPs. He is wily enough to know who's backing he needs the most to continue doing a good job, by reminding us that "... having to toe the official line has been his biggest challenge since joining the Government. ... And he is certain that he can continue to help the people as long as he does not get any ticking off from Abdullah."

That's a pretty smart move from someone who not too long ago was almost near the bottom of the heap in the political hierarchy. Lets hope he will continue to be careful in his steps and not spoil it all by getting a foot stuck in his mouth, especially in the sensitive issue of racial politics. It is not everyday that one gets a second chance in the fickle world of politics and so far, this is as good as it gets for Nazri.
