What is it with DAP and the songkok?Posted: June 20, 2008
I fail to see any reason behind refusing to wear the songkok. No reason at all. Especially coming from a member of a coalition that champions the Bangsa Malaysia ideology.
JOHOR BARU: Bentayan state assemblyman Gwee Tong Hiang was thrown out of the assembly hall yesterday for defying a house rule to wear official attire and songkok.
He was asked to leave after failing to adhere to the 50-year-old protocol requiring all 56 assemblymen to wear the official uniform.

This is definitely not the first time DAP has made the news when it comes to the issue of wearing a songkok. In fact, it is only made an issue by DAP.
Get over yourself already. There’s nothing wrong with wearing the songkok. If there’s a dress code that you must follow, then just follow it for goodness sake! What is so difficult to understand?
You make laws, and you expect all of us to follow them. But if you yourself cannot follow protocol, then what position do you stand on when you want us to follow rules and laws that you set?
Lead by example. And at this very moment, Gwee Tong Hiang is not a very good example at all.
