Haidar: "Don't be like that, Lah!"

Don't do like that lah

Commission chairman Tan Sri Haidar Mohamed Noor said it was unwise for Anwar to release the clip on an instalment basis.

"Don't do it like that. We have a job to do here. Please tell your client that we cannot be dancing to his tune," he told Counsel M. Puravalen, who is representing Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim

Another commission member, Datuk Mahadev Shankar, said previously Anwar had broadcast the two earlier clips to the entire world.

"Now, he wants to share it with us," Mahadev said.

Businessman Loh Mui Fah said in a statement yesterday that he had asked his son Gwo Burne, who recorded the video, to do everything possible to recover all records of it.

The Commission of Inquiry to the Lingham's Video is getting insidious with the release of the 3rd installment of the video clips by Anwar Ibrahim.

It could possibly strike fear on many others, as slowly one by one of those in high places are implicated in the high profile scandals.

First, it was ex-CJ Fairuz; then it;s another ex-CJ Eusoff Chin. The exposure implicate names such as Mahathir, Tengku Adnan, Vincent Tan, ex-A-G Mohtar Abdullah.

Now, even our most honest CJ Dzaiddin is implicated. Who else have not?

Oh my dear, even Lawyer Robert Lazar's name has been added to the list.

I think it's putting fear into the commission members.

Did any members of the commission suffers nausea?

Read this joke:

Lawyer True Story

In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand.

The witness was a grand motherly, elderly woman.

He approached her and asked, "Mrs.Jones, do you know me?"

She responded, "Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've know you since you were a young boy,and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you. "

The Lawyer was stunned.

Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked,"Mrs. Jones. do you know the defense attorney?"

She again replied, "Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women, one of them was your wife. Yes, I know him."

The defense attorney almost died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench, and in a very quiet voice, said,

"If either of you guys asks her if she knows me, I'll throw you in jail for contempt." ........

Hi Maverick
Many thanks for your email. What do you think about this? Any assistance would be gratefully received.

The title is:
In Jackson v Horizon Holidays (1975), Lord Denning ignored established precedent to decide the case on the basis of simply achieving a just result. Despite condemnation of such tactics from other judges, in practice much of the law of contract has developed in this way.

Critically analyse this statement.
