Last Friday, Barisan Nasional assemblyman Hamidah Osman was reported to have asked Speaker V. Sivakumar if he “agreed to disagree” with a saying of whether a snake or an Indian should be killed first.
Her comment was deemed “unacceptable” and she was called a racist by many, including politicians practicing race-based politics.
So like any good politician, she has since issued a public apology:
“To err is human and we all make mistakes. If my words had hurt the feelings of any Indian, I ask for forgiveness,” she said in what she termed was her third apology to the community.She said her statement was from an old Malay proverb that meant to ‘not twist one’s words around.’
So it would seem that all is hunky dory in Bolehland again.
More recently, Malim Nawar assemblyman Keshvinder Singh left Pakatan to be BN friendly. He said that his decision was in the best interests of his constituents because he believes that only BN can help develop the area, which is largely rural.
So I guess he’s fucked now.
