And I thought he was quite good!
After watching the great Debate on TV, I like many Malaysians I'm sure, came away with a new respect for the minister of information, Shabery Cheek. Going up against a skilled and season campaigner and orator of the calibre of Anwar Ibrahim is no mean feat. I 'tabik-ed' him that night.
And then ah...this morning my respect for the man fell a couple of big points leh. Why? When he was asked by reporters why he had taken pot shots at Anwar by making personal remarks he replied, "Personal attacks will be more about criticising his face, his clothes or his preferences."
Huh???!!! What kind of reply is that? And coming from a minister of information!
Sorry, Shabery. One point lost.
