malaysiakini may not have this news item but the Star Online did. It spoke of government backbenchers being angry with Tian Chua for his doctored photo of a French dinner for three.
The usual suspects provided their obligatory and furious reactions at the insinuation of a cosy dining ménage a trois. But the one that riled me in turn has been Bung Mokhtar Radin, the notorious MP from Kinabatangan, yes, Mr Bocor himself.
He had the thick skin to condemn Tian Chua for going ‘overboard’. He said: “The Opposition cannot simply spread lies to discredit national leaders. This is a criminal act.”
Well, may I say to him that “The government backbenchers cannot simply make disgusting remark to insult opposition members in the so-called august House. That would be worse than criminal acts”, for to abuse the trust and expectations of your voters is surely the greatest crime of betrayal for a politician.
Yang Berbocor could do well and serve his constituency best if he keeps his lips sealed, doctored if necessary.
