English the Pommie way

From MM Online:

I say, that bounder looes74 

CHERAS, May 11 — PKR’s top leadership today met its imprisoned de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in hospital to seek his views on candidates to be proposed for the new Pakatan Harapan (PH) Cabinet.

PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said that the PKR leaders were meeting Anwar after the first round of discussions among PH leaders for the Cabinet positions.

“For PKR, the input or views from Datuk Seri Anwar is needed."

"So today, I, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah, Nurul Izzah and Rafizi Ramli and a few other senior leaders selang seli (alternately) gave input and views to Datuk Seri Anwar and the purpose is for tomorrow where we will continue the next round of discussions”.

our motto "Heaven's light our guide"

God save the Queen

Maybe Saifuddin knows English better than I do.

But nevertheless, I feel his sentence as highlighted above might have violated one of the protocols of English, mind you, Pommie English, wakakaka.

confound you looes74, you ought to be horsewhipped for defiling Her Majesty's English, the finest language in the civilised World 

When one describes a group of people including oneself, one should usually place oneself last, as below:

So today, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah, Nurul Izzah and Rafizi Ramli, a few other senior leaders and I ... 

Some examples for you are:

a. Sweetie and I, [wakakaka]
b. Mahathir, Mukhriz and I, [gulp]
c. Pak Haji Hadi and I [Assalamualaikum]

Hope this helps, wakakaka, especially you looes74.


  1. Alaikum salam. Wakakaka...

  2. Anwar Ibrahim must be the most privileged prisoner in the world :-) . He is legally still a convicted criminal, though I always considered it an injustice.

    He is staying in a comfortable private hospital room , and receiving endless rounds of visitors....wakaka..

    Never mind, the party that he is DeFacto head just took over control of the Malaysian Federal just a matter of legal formalities before he is freed.

    1. 1.This is the question frequently asked by the rakyat ie adakah pak syeikh benar2 bersalah, not only this time but also the previous conviction.
      2. The meeting was to discuss and agree to the portion of harta rampasan perang.

  3. Is that your new assignement Kaytee? English Language Teacher?

    Why so fast?


    Sarawak Report is no more blocked...wakakakaka... what a difference 48 hours makes..

    It's morning again in Malaysia, after a Long , Dark Night.

    Mahathir was part of the problem, he knows he has to lead the solution.

    Reformasi !

    1. Blocked or not, its still trash. Lets see how much more slander she can throw at Hadi.

  5. Go go go cheebye kaytee. Be a fucking english teacher in australia. Make sure u never set foot in indonesia, malaysia and singapore

    1. I sokong 101%¡

      Let's this pommie anmokauxai be exiled to kangaroo land to experience some real oz-ilised Queens English.

      Perhaps, only then he would understand linguistics blend-in & colloquialism.

    2. not many wan to go singapore n china n similar authoritarian regime with zombie that could only do their barking in other democracy country like msia.

    3. Zombies??

      If these countries r inhabited by zombies, u WON'T be seeing the level of development there?

      U r barking up the wrong tree!

    4. zombie mean if u stuff one with "something", he would follow yr instruction like a dog right?

      i ergo believe spore n china zombie cant imagine there is always alternative that could do better right?

      so which part i am wrong? r u one as well?

    5. Wakakakaka…… there is ONLY that little much of true in yr definition of 'zombie'!

      Zombie doesn't get stuff with "something". He/She/it gets infested.

      Zombie doesn't advance in ANY developments, be they mental, sopo or whatnot. He/she/it stays perpetual in the same decaying stage.

      S'pore & China have chosen a path that doesn't comply with yrs & make a 'living' out of it.

      Can yr alternative does anything better? Taiwan? Wakakakaka…… is this a joke?

      Ain't u wrong?

      BTW, using yr definition of 'zombie' perhaps u r the best example of that species. Right?
