Since I posted this, Khalid Ibrahim has finally voiced more committed support for Eli.
Hmmm, better late than never I suppose, but I have to say, in contrast to Nazri Abdul Aziz' correct statement against the contemptible photos and his nice word of encouragement for Eli, I have been deeply disappointed with Khalid's (political) over-caution about rallying to Eli's defence when basic decency had demanded his prompt, unreserved and 'loyal' support.
Malaysiakini - Nude photos: Exco lodges police report.
As you would gather from my post I support Elizabeth Wong; I deplore Khir Toyo's cynical politics I have been as outraged by Khir Toyo’s failure to condemn that despicable act as I had been by the contemptible circulation of photos involving the private moments of an individual.
Instead Khir Toyo has shamefully attempted to exploit Eli’s current vulnerability. I truly despise such guttersnipe politicking.
But I have been pleasantly surprised by two BN leaders who came out as decent human beings to condemn the outrageous acts.
Malaysiakini reported in 'Gross invasion of her privacy' the following:
Nazri Abdul Aziz, Minister in Prime Minister's Department
I sympathise with the executive councillor, this thing should have not happened as she the people's representative and she had been performing her duties.
Therefore, to foil what she has done for the community in this manner is not good. But I hope her spirits (remain strong) and she will not bother about what has happened.
Bravo Nazri, well said. Today you sir have earned my respect for your statement of support, as to be expected of any decent person, more so from a parliamentarian. Thank you Datuk!
Chew Mei Fun, Wanita MCA chief
Wanita MCA empathises with Wong... We are outraged by such shameful acts of using women as sexual objects - it is an outright invasion of the privacy of women as well as exploitation of women for political use.
Well said, Mei Fun, I owe you a kiss.
But alas, read the following tap dancing equivocating statement by Elizabeth Wong’s own PKR boss, as reported by Malaysiakini:
Selangor Mentri Besar Khalid Ibrahim, asked if Wong would be asked for her resignation, said the state government would look into all aspects of the incident before making a decision on the matter.
“Let the police report go through (it) and then we will have our own discussion on the issue,” said Khalid.
“We are open to all possibilities but given the situation it is best to give the victim the right of hearing and we have to listen to her explanation.”
Dei Khalid Ibrahim, listen carefully - a good leader always stands by his troops when any one of them is in strife (and who hasn’t committed any wrong). It’s time you have a bit of backbone and come out bravely to support her. If she is the victim as you said, then WTF are you equivocating about?
She must and should be protected and supported.
And WTF do you mean by “We are open to all possibilities ..."
Are you opening the door for her possible dismissal from the Exco?
If you are, as I suspect as much through your shifty equivocating, then you are a ball-less spineless gutless no-leader.For f* sake, just look at what Nazri Abdul Aziz of UMNO had said, in stark contrast to your beating around the bush and preparing the grounds for Eli's dismissal (or forced resignation).
May I remind you again that Nazri is UMNO, you are PKR and Eli is PKR!
Gawd, gasp, omigosh (Eli's lovely expressions), what a f*up party PKR is!
