5 reasons DAP’s Sekolah Demokrasi should hold Malay language classes


Some DAP members of parliament are under the delusion they’re debating in the British House of Commons. They seem to fail to realise they’re representing voters in Malaysia, not Great Britain.

When will these MPs from the DAP learn to show more love for our national language or at least display some facility speaking it in the august house?

1 Batu Kawan MP Kasthuri Patto speaks decent Malay but she still prefers to express herself in English after the ubiquitious “dengan izin” plea to the speaker.

2 Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh, just like Komrad Kasthuri, is another Look West-er who switches to English after a glib “dengan izin”.

Ramkarpal needs to emulate big brother Gobind who speaks Malay fluently.

“Bully man” or was it ‘BUDIMAN’ you meant to say?

3Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa’s bad BM is legendary. It’s well known he could barely communicate in Malay when first elected to parliament in 2008.

Er did however promise earnestly to improve. Like his political mentors, he has not kept this promise after almost 10 years.

The Honorable Member for Bakri also swore to uphold the provisions of federal constitution, including Article 152 with respect to national language.

Listen to his breathless oath taking in the video above.

In her dreams (“mimpi”)? Or did she have the word impian in mind?

“Ala tuju?” Not arah tuju, meh?

4 Seputeh MP Teresa Kok is a veteran of many, many parliamentary terms. So surely she can do better than this rather, than debunking the old adage ‘Practice Makes Perfect’.

Telesa oh Telesa.

5 Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching’s BM is hard on our ears.

For someone so keen on visiting mosques, it is strange that her command of Malay is still subpar. All that shoulder-to  shoulder with the Pak Lebai didn’t rub off in terms of ability to converse in the language of the ummah of our country.

Keseksaan or Kesesakan? Garis or Gadis?

We shall be celebrating our 60th year of Merdeka – independence from British imperialism – in only a few months. Yet the mentality of the DAP Parliamentarians is still colonized by the white man.
