Mahathir with a garland of slippers all sorts of hot air has been blown from different kettles.
Don't insult elder statesmen!
Respect other people's sensitivities.
Okay, so as Malaysians we are all used to this kind of soap-boxing every so often. But sometimes it does get to be a bit irritating la. Especially when you hear things like.......
"If we want others to respect us, then we must accord respect to others"
Words of wisdom, right? Except that it came from the same fler who defended the cow-head demonstrators of Shah Alam recently. Yes, Hishammuddin Hussein strikes again!
In response to the offer of the garland of slippers to Dr. Mahathir (who probably just chuckled im mild amusement when he read of the offer) our Hishammuddin said, "............We must never forget our values and culture of respecting others. If we want others to respect us, then we must accord respect to others."
Excuse me. I think I'm going to puke now....
