So Tunku Aziz will not be a law maker any more. Big news! His term was to expire anyway.
Tunku Aziz is a strange guy. Read what he said:
“I served Dewan Negara, not as an Opposition proponent but as a loyal citizen for the best interest of the country."
The principal object of that sentence is NOT AS AN OPPOSITION PROPONENT.
A young budding politician of 37-40 years old would tell him off. For what? For being an old jerk. Here was an opportunity for him to preach. The occasion demanded it but like the Bersih incident he ...was him. All he had to do was say something like -
“Thank you guys. I may want to go fishing more now but I won't catch any sharks. But before I pack up, I'm overawed at this opportunity in having served my motherland (or was it fatherland) Malaysia. I may have screwed you up from across the aisle but hey! we're doing all this for Malaysia. Whether you're an opposition member or government member we serve our nation. When we fell short you were there. And when you did too, we screwed you up real good. But hey! give me a call if you like fishing! Ta! ta! ”
Habis! Apalah cakap macam tu? When will it stop in the average Malaysian's mind that the opposition are traitors. PM and DPM and that skunk Ahmad Maslan say that all the time - opposition are traitors! Those skunks in tall songkoks, supporters of UMNO say that moning noon till night. Brahim Ali and Hasan Ali if they didn't say it they meant it. Especially in the kampungs. They're never shy anywhere.
The moment called for it. Tungku Aziz wasn't there at all.
