A Star editor tipped me off in the afternoon of August 16 on why the Cabinet had decided to subject Wee Meng Chee to legal action despite having his father stage a public apology at the Health Minister's office.

"Siapa yang mahukan Wee di kenakan tindakan selepas dia minta maaf? Bukan Umno. Bukan MCA... Gerakan!"
