If a BN person had made such a claim which led to peers and the public imagining incorrectly that the university was the redoubtable Cambridge University in England, specifically at Trinity Lane, Cambridge CB2 1TN, UK, there would have been a deafening hullabaloo for the last several days.

Face of a Cambridge University graduate
TB pursued his degree course through a “long distance learning” programme. But political activist Muhsin Abdul Latheef, the man who raised the question about YB's "Cambridge degree" in his FB, had checked online and found that (USA) Cambridge does not offer degree programmes via “long distance learning”, wakakaka.

FMT reported: Checks on the USA’s Cambridge International University website, meanwhile, show that it does offer distance learning but these are “unique, non-traditional and not accredited by the US Department of Education”.
In other words, the USA Cambridge is more commonly known as a diploma mill, to wit, one with more questions to be asked on it than learning to be acquired from there.
Though the press did not allow complete silence on the issue, by contrast there has been relative quiet from Pakatan side especially from DAP which has always been the loudest to question the academic qualifications of BN politicians.
For example, on 19 April 2013, DAP's Ong Kian Ming challenged the genuineness of the academic qualifications of five Selangor BN candidates. he was right to do so, but what about now? Wakakaka.
Yes, I recall fierce queries and abuses being hurled at some BN politicians questioning their academic qualifications. Somehow YB Senator Dato' Haji Marzuki Yahya has been treated more sympathetically by the Pakatan Hellhounds. I have only a phrase to say, 'Double Standards'. I know that is not worthy of a Cambridge graduate's normal-speak, wakakaka again.
And really, with PM Mahathir espousing Japanese 'values', I reckon YB Senator Dato' Haji Marzuki Yahya should, no not what you may think a la seppuku wakakaka, but resign. Only blardy decent thing to do. C'mon lah YB, don't you have any shame?
But I relish the sight of one of the lecturers of his 'Cambridge University'.
