Like in any democratic country the elected representatives or YBs(Yang Berhormats) are all elected by the citizens of that country. When we were young we were taught by our parents and later on by our teachers/tutors/professors that we must show courtesy and be courteous to our fellow human beings. There is no room for bad language and if consistently the YBs who seems to be working against the very people who put him /her in the State or Parliament it is like writing a ” DEATH WISH/WARRANT.”
If the needs arise which needs further explaination or clarification to the YBs or MPs who fail to see their roles as elected representatives click here:- http://www.answers.com/topic/parliament . What really got audie61 feeling very twitchy and touchy was this report which appeared in Malaysiakini http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/105691. The point which really hit a HOME RUN for us was the usage of the word “BODOH” translated in English meaning Stupid. I bold it here to make a statement and it is a VERY UNPLEASANT PHRASE to use:-
Stupid can be bests described as
We are not about to protect or blow it out of proportion a statement by Henneson Bujang or the Malaysiakini reporter Keruah Usit, who submitted this report which is being read worldwide in the blogsphere. If there are no truth in this statement let there be an APOLOGY forthcoming or a suit of defamation of character.
This extracted clearly implicates the N70 Ba’Kelalan State Assemblyman. Could he be following his fellow YB N2 Tasik Biru in making the same mistake? Interestingly, both of them are from the same party SPDP(Sarawak Progressive Democratic party)” YB Nelson told us: ‘You are against the government. You are ‘bodoh’ (stupid)! You will be left behind. You will be blacklisted. We will not bring projects to you.’.
“We replied that we are not against the government. We only want to protect our forest and our drinking water. We welcome the development projects that the government brings. Who wouldn’t?” Henneson asked
On September 11th this was the headlines which had the Bidayuh community up in arms against the remarks made by SPDP Senior Vice President. https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/09/10/gila-gila-what-a-headline-malaysiakini/
9 months later another miscalculated remark by an SPDP YB surfaces again in Malaysiakini. Couldn’t the YBs be more courteous and the saying goes,”Politicians who loses their cool or temper, it will be their greatest downfall. Nothing else.” Hope this doesn’t happen..?? Correct me If I am wrong..??
Who are we to question the integrity and maturity of the voters who put the YBs,MPs in their respective houses. The fundamentals for those elected into office is simple,”Be Humble and Know who put you there in the first place”.
audie61 will not take sides especially with YBs or MPs and lets make it very CLEAR. If Pakatan or BN elected representatives speak foul or uses the wrong terms/language we will do our part in condemning the elected representatives. We BOTHER thats WHY we take pains and effort to ensure that our YBs know who they are and where they stand. YOU ARE ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE AND DON”T FORGET THAT..!!!!!!!!!
We say as always,”There will be a time when the Elected representative leave office and if he has served well it is alright BUT if NOT I will not be surprise what they they have to put up with…Be forewarned..
