“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone…” so goes the opening line in Johnny Cash’s 1972 classic song of the same title. Strange though that Hishamuddin Hussein too has changed his tune now, a day after his eloquent defence of the cow-head demonstrators.
Abraham Lincoln once said “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”. Seems, Mr. Double H is beginning to find that truth out for himself, while the newly re-appointed IGP is still denying that “the police were not serious in handling the matter.” Unlike our recently “enlightened” H2, the poor sod doesn’t realise that he just keeps sounding like a broken record! And we all know where broken records end up!

Just maybe, we can all see clearly then.
