Consumerist: Recalcitrant Sri Gading Should Take Bahasa Malaysia Classes!
First is there nothing called ‘personal view’ when one sits as a BN block and makes statements in Parliament?
In Parliament, you represent your constituency and in this case, the Barisan Nasional block!
That itself raises many a question, does it not?
But many play to the gallery thinking their uncouth statements assuming, in fact, gambling that they will be made a hero when they make such, but in this case, when lambasted by BN and UMNO Secretary General and politically extinct threatened BN component parties – the next best thing to save face is to deny content, or, claim it was a personal statement!
The truth is a grave injustice was done to Ambiga Sreenevasan by defaming her by stating she committed treason!
Who is really committing treason?
Are they those alleged to be selling state secrets in procurement or paying billions for useless hi-tech gadgets for commissions, or offering Citizenship for votes or the uncontrollable runaway corruption that is currently a way of life here or staying silent despite knowledge of all wrong doings for political expediency?
As far as this vulgar matter is concerned – according to Hansard, the Umno leader had said: “Apakah Ambiga tidak boleh kita anggap penderhaka kepada Duli Yang Maha Mulia Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan hukum gantung pada dia?” which when translated means :
‘Can we not consider Ambiga a traitor to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and sentence her to hang?’
So you decide what is truth, what is a lie and what is a cowardly act and an embarrassment to the Nation and who indeed is a recalcitrant ass!
