Indiscrete conversation

Would you believe, after viewing this video, that Mr V.K. Lingam was drunk? He sounded perfectly, though damningly, sound and sane to me. But of course Mr Lingam is a lawyer, so I wouldn't be surprised with his explanation for an incident that has brought out the political knives in Malaysia today. This video is the subject of an ongoing Royal Commission of Inquiry whether judicial appointments had been unduly influenced by Mr Lingam's and perhaps others' effort since 2001. But of course, Dr Mahathir claims that all judicial appointments made during his tenure of office as PM was solely by him, taking into account the feedback and advice of various people.

You be the, ahem, judge, whether Lingam was drunk or not.
