Male Chauvinist Parliamentarian

I didn't intend to actually blog about this but an article in today's The Star Online just got on my nerves.
Close-One-Eye's excuse not to apologise

Last week, Mr. Close-One-Eye and Mr. Foul Mouth had made derogatory remarks in the parliament while commenting on a question by an opposition MP. You can read more about this in Malaysia Today or watch the Parliament session here.

Today, the Male Chauvinist Parliamentarian (MCP) is trying to worm his way out... His excuse is that 'bocor' could have meant anything from 'urinate' to the leaks in the Parliament. Unless the newspaper quoted him wrongly, since when did our Parliament building move to Batu Gajah? Or is he implying that we're wasting our money trying to fix and renovate the Parliament since it leaks every month? Or maybe he's just putting it across politely that the Works Minister isn't doing a good job. I doubt people in Batu Gajah urinate only once a month.

But do you know what is really amazing about all this? We elected these jokers. Yes, we are the ones who actually put these so-called leaders there. These are the people who are supposed to represent us and lead our country... But we have to seriously stop and ask - do they represent what Malaysians are and where are they leading us to? I definitely didn't elect them just so they could crack crude jokes and act like clowns in Parliament.

He has the right to refuse to apologise. We have the right not to vote him in. :) I have always believe action speaks louder than words. If we're serious about something, there is no need to talk. Just do it. If Malaysians are really offended, why the need to ask for an apology? Just make him regret it instead. We have the power!

In case you're wondering why I am suddenly so vocal, well, Mr. Gangster said politicians must be able to take criticisms:

Hmmm... I wonder if they would have gotten slapped had they said that in front of their mothers.

[From Wikipedia: Male Chauvinist is used to describe men who treat women negatively based solely upon their gender.]

Heard about the apology on the BBC World Service on radio while I was driving home yesterday.

Now it's all over the world. It even mentioned about the "monkey" calling in parliament. We have disgraceful ministers.

ya... i just heard about the retraction on the radio... was about to google for it then saw that you have posted the link. :)

thanks.

reason for retraction is to wait for his boss approval before apologise. i wonder then why they never ask for boss permission to mention about the bocor?

yes... this is really a disgrace to Malaysians.
