Though I am born in Malaysia and have lived for about 20 years of my live there, I seldom talk on the situation there, particularly politics. I am getting more disinterested in Malaysia nowadays. However, once in a while, I do visit Malaysian political blogs to keep up to-date on the politics.
Malaysians are used to hear their politicians conferred with long honorific titles. For example, a prominent person by the name of Hashim, could be address to as Yang Amat Berhomat Tan Sri Professor Doctor Madya Haji Muhammad Hashim.
Here’s a piece of gem (hahaha) by a clearly flabbergasted commentator over the recent cases of using the draconian ISA ( law which allow detention without trials) against a woman politician, a woman reporter and a blogger:
Note : Understanding of the Malaysian language is necessary for one to enjoy this piece and understand below’s message
I am totally disgusted with the BN govt and especially the antics of some umno members.
The utter irresponsible behaviour and actions which have culminated with the ISA ARRESTS, leads me to believe Malaysia is being governed by a bunch of lunatics who have taken over the asylum. This includes the flip-flop decisions and bersumpah saiful, pusrawi DR’S notes, Police selective prosecuting and threats leads one to be astonished at what lengths some people will go to stay relevant and in power. With utter disgust, as my up bringing will not allow me to utter 4 letter words, I have therefore come up with a few rejoinders.
I have a new title for umno & BN cabinet members. for acting and behaving like morons and retards:
YANG BERKURAP aka kucing kurap
AND LAST AND NOT LEAST
So the next time you call them YB, DON’T FORGET THESE TITLES.
