Nazri has denied that there was any conflict of interest over his son's involvement. He was quoted to have said
It is between my son and Michael Chia...
Well. some of what Nazri has been quoted to have said is bordering on the bizarre.
How about this one
I don't sleep with my son. I am not gay. My son is not my wife, my son is not my lover. What he does, he doesn't tell me
Dear minister, we know that your son is not your wife and that he is not your lover. We would be concerned if he sleeps with you and he is your lover.
And you may not be homo. Nobody is suggesting that. We Malaysians are just wondering why Michael Chia would lend your son a hum - sorry, was it a Hummer? reputedly worth a half-million ringgit!
And if you can't see beyond your wife's nose, what are you doing there as a minister? Aren't you also required to know more than just what happens between your wife and you?
Saying that he was least concerned about his political future following the latest expose, Nazri was also quoted to have said
I am a rich man, I'm powerful, good looking, wealthy. So what can I do...It doesn't bother me. I am popular...you know...I have a film star status here. Celebrity. Not local film star, but Hollywood level
You may be rich and wealthy. We believe you are.
You may be powerful. We believe you are, too.
And a lot of this powerful thing is because your constituents have voted for you all these years and you have been in the seat of power all these years. We wonder if you have not been abusing this power that you have.
Let's see if your constituents would continue to vote you again.
As to whether you are handsome or not, some of us would like to think that you are as handsome as a cow.
A Hollywood celebrity? Well, you should ask Hollywood.
Some of us think that you don't even qualify to be a Bollywood star. And we are not being sarcastic.
We are just being kind.
