Cunning Linguistics

Arise, Malaysians.

Clean your ears, wash your eyes, go back to school and learn Bahasa Melayu.

Follow us on the path to One Malaysia of many versions.

Where the deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin can say something in one language for it to come out, apparently different, in other languages, but what is said is fine as Malaysia is a democracy.

Glad we got that out of the way and no longer excited about it.

Funny how these BN politicians think, that we would vote for them, follow them even, to reciprocate for the lucre they dish out in every election campaign.

Not even for instant noodles.

We the Siber Party of Malaysia (M) have not made many promises save a few. None have come true of course. Yet, it is not something we will give willy-nilly just to take back a seat or two.

Because we know the people want more than instant gratification (no?). They want liberty, equality and fraternity... and let's not forget some profanity.

However, we have to stop politicians from cunning linguistics, the same kind found in Animal Farm that turned four legs good, two legs bad into four legs good, two legs better!

Because even in that parody of communism, Orwell could tell that one day, all animals are equal can have the addendum, but some animals are more equal than others.

And that, lads and ladettes, is One Malaysia. Follow it at your own peril.

The Siber Party of Malaysia (M) meanwhile, will stick to its own party.
