Hardtalk: Tun Dr. Mahathir compared to Anwar Ibrahim?

Two days post the landmark BBC program “Hardtalk” on Monday, 21 April 2007.

It is only wise to compare how Former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad faired against his onetime-heir-apparent-turned-political-adversary Former Deputy Prime Minister and onetime convict Anwar Ibrahim, on the same platform, being grilled (although the latter were lucky enough to get the more milder Zeinab Badawi instead of caffeine-charged Stephen Sackur).

So, make your own comparisons.

P/S: For fun, we’ll throw in someone currently still in Government, then Foreign Minister Dato’ Seri Syed Hamid Albar, on the same program being interviewed by Sarah Montague.

Apparently, there was this one Sackur grilled Former Deputy Prime Minister and one time convict Anwar Ibrahim, two years earlier than Miss Badawi’s. This is really an interesting one. So, now do the comparisons.
