"Political integrity means just plain honesty in politics. One of the most important things is never to deceive the people. Any politician who deceives the people either for the sake of his party or because he imagines it's for the sake of the people, is lacking in political integrity." Aung San Suu Kyi

Do we understand this concept of political integrity? It is easy for our foreign affairs minister to talk in support of Suu Kyi, but do we understand what she really stands for? Does our government have political integrity in relation to how it dealt with the Lingam tape?

Is it simply chance that the Malaysian Bar marched as a force of 2,000 for the cause of justice? When lawyers take their professional oath before judges, what does it mean when they march against alleged corruption of the judiciary?
