malaysiakini and "Different Strokes for Different Folks"?

If you are confused about the "quality of justice" in Malaysia be assured that you are not the only one.
It seems that the legal wrangling about who is the rightful Menteri Besar of Perak is also subject to vagaries like the weather and which CPU was used to process the various applications.
Maybe even the poor electrons in the different CPUs are getting confused with the dozen or more cases concerning the cases of the 2 MBs and 2 Speakers and 2 sets of Perak Excos.
According to this malaysiakini article Nizar's stay application fixed for Monday.

I know what you are thinking. How did that other guy manage to get a stay within 24 hours of being found to be an imposter MB as Nizar had never resigned or vacated his post? Now when the righful MB applies to quash the stay order, the matter is delayed by 4 days. I do include Saturday and Sunday as the case should be held by Friday the latest as it is a matter of great public urgency.

The quality of justice is indeed strained if the courts are perceived to be taking sides by handling this critical matter with a definite bias.
What happened to the saying, "Justice delayed is justice denied"?
