No name-calling, pleasePosted: February 7, 2009
An articulate Perak Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin revealed his combative streak and colourful vocabulary today by challenging Umno to a duel.
“If Umno is jantan (a man) then battle it out with Pakatan Rakyat through elections,” was his challenge.
“Tapi Umno dayus dan pondan sepenuh pondanya,” was his conclusion during a press conference at the menteri besar’s official residence this evening.
I happen to think that Barisan Nasional SHOULD “battle it out” with Pakatan Rakyat through elections. That’s how it should be done if we claim to practise democracy.
But hey, lay off with the name-calling.
Since when did being jantan have anything to do with “battling it out”? And since when did people who refuse to “battle it out” become pondans?
This is bad form.
