Malaysian Politicians Say The Damnedest Thing

Move aside, Amir Muhammad (the author of the books " Malaysian Politicians Say The Darnedest Things" ).

Rumours were swirling recently, that a senior minister had raped his maid.

There were demands that the allegation be investigated

After a deafening silence, the minister came out to say that he was innocent and that he was willing to be investigated and that the rumours were all the work of the opposition in their desperate attempt to divert attention from their own problems and the ongoing sodomy trial of Anwar Ibrahim.

Obviously feeling some pressure, the PM himself came out to add his two cents worth.

After telling the rakyat not to prejudge the minister since the minister had said he was willing to be investigated, the PM was also quoted by online news portal Malaysia Chronicle as saying "In any case, what happened was in 2007. Why now?"

If what was reported is true, that statement must be the dumbest, damnedest thing Malaysian politicians say.

Go figure out that statement.

1. The rape did happen?
2. It happened in 2007?
3. Since it happened a few years ago, why bother?

It may even turn out to be the dumbest, damnedest statement of the year made by a Malaysian politician.

But given the history of the darnedest things Malaysian politicians say (read Amir Muhammad's books ) I won't bet my money on it.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
