In the Semangat 46 days way back 1988, other than Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah aka Ku Li, I also had great liking and interest for our present day Information, Communication and Culture Minister Rais Yatim. Thought that Rais must be one smart cookie a thinking person with his PhD from King’s College London and his doctoral dissertation “Freedom Under Executive Power in Malaysia: A Study of Executive Supremacy”, which I read. What a shame, I was so wrong.
Over the years, my interest in Rais started taking a dive and I began to realize that Rais Yatim is just one big pseudo intellectual a showoff who love to use bombastic words and love to shoot from his hip and will do anything to upstage anyone to impress his boss. What a let down man!
Remember, during our Pak Lah’s era this Rais Yatim had even suggested that all Malaysian women who are traveling alone overseas ought to get their family’s permission before leaving Malaysia or else these women may end up as drug mules overseas. Rais even brought this matter up to the cabinet but it was shot down by Pak Lah. What an idiot!
Then again when Malaysia lost to Singapore over sovereignty of Pulau Batu Putih aka Pedra Branca , Rais Yatim told the press that the ICJ’s verdict in The Hague was a ‘win-win’ decision. Joker this Rais! He thinks Malaysians are dumb.
Now, the most recent one is Rais’s proposed internet filter, his bright idea to impose censorship of the internet and his justification for the protecting of the public’s morality and targeting child pornography and pornography in general. This is yet another ‘brilliant’ idea of our Rais. He thinks he is a smart aleck lah.
Thank goodness, Najib Tun Razak our PM was quick to come out with a statement that the government does not intend to do anything of that sort and has denied that there is an effort to filter the internet.
This is sure a slap in the face for Rais in public. Hope he realize what a joker he is. Rais is proving time and time again that he is an embarrassment to Malaysians with his constant idiotic statements.
Should read here for more.
