Slow Motion Reaction To Parliament's 'Bocor' Issue Exposes Sharizat's Lack Of Commitment

Today's Bernama headline: Shahrizat Demands Action Against Statements That Demean Women.

That is the belated call from the Women, Family and Community Development Minister! After everyone else had had their say and much curses and swear words directed at two apes passing off as MPs, Sharizat, as if not to be left behind or as an afterthought wishing to place her lame objections on record said that her ministry will 'take action' to ensure that statements that insult or belittle women will not be repeated in parliament.

"I feel 'hurt' at what happened and I want concrete steps taken to ensure that similar incidents do not recur. I will raise the matter at the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday to 'discuss' the steps to be taken," she added for dramatic effect. But this ultra-slow response (a full 5 days after the incident) proves that self-preservation comes first and then only the duties of her allocated portfolio. To add to the hogwash she further added that she "will seek the opinions of Cabinet ministers to review and amend the rules on use of proper language in parliament. This has been happening many times and must not be taken lightly. More importantly, we want action."

(Last Wednesday, Datuk Bung Moktar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan) and Datuk Mohd Said Yusuf (BN-Jasin) were reported to have made uncalled for remarks by linking the leak in the ceiling at the parliament building to Fong Po Kuan (DAP-Batu Gajah). Bung Moktar was reported to have said: "Where is the leak... even in Batu Gajah there is a leak every month," as Fong was protesting the decision of Deputy Speaker of Parliament Datuk Lim Si Cheng not to discuss the leak at the parliament building. Bung Moktar's statement was taken to refer to women's monthly menstruation.)

It is logical to ask that since the vulgar comments by these crass, ill-bred, foulmouthed plebeians have been going on for so long, what the devil has Sharizat done about it thus far? Making pious statements like "I will seek the opinion of cabinet ministers to review and amend the rules on use of proper language in parliament," or "it will be honourable if an apology is made," is well and good, but as the minister holding the women's portfolio, she should have been the first to have condemned the vulgar cretins of the Dewan Rakyat. However it looks as if playing partisan politics is more important to her than standing up for the dignity of women.

Remember the 2004 Manifesto or MADifesto of BN:

page 7: (quote):

"Seek a higher level of performance and integrity among your elected representatives".

Page 5: (quote)"Barisan Nasional has never been satisfied with its excellent track record. We constantly look for ways to renew and improve." (unquote)

Verdict: BN elected representatives Said Yusuf and Bung Mokhat Radin (Jasin and Kinabatangan or Kinabinatang??) have done well and serve as role models. Congratulations BN!!

Women voters take note:

According to STAR (MCA owned paper) reports: (quote)

"All the Barisan women MPs, including ministers, deputy ministers and parliamentary secretaries, CONSPICUOUSLY STAYED AWAY, although they had more than four hours' notice of the Speaker's ruling."

All of them stayed away when the motion to refer the two MPs were rejected.

So women voters, when BN women candidates come to your door step to court your votes at the next general election, you know well that when it comes to the crucial moment to represent your interests, THEY WILL NEVER BE AROUND cos they were actually not around as it ALREADY HAPPENED. THIS IS A FACT!! It happened! No more promises.
