Guan Eng saves his tongue... for now

Lim Guan Eng gets to keep this tongue for now. The next time, he might lose it.

As the Malay proverb goes, "Cakap siang, pandang-pandang; cakap malam, dengar-dengar". In English, it could mean something like "Look before you leap".

The Penang Chief Minister finally apologised to the Sultan of Johor and his subjects for 'the disparaging remarks' he made about the State during a function in Singapore recently (here).

"The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, had said he was offended by the statement made by me against Johor. Out of respect to the Johor Sultan, I wish to fully apologise to the Johor Sultan and his subjects, the people of Johor. I have no intention whatsoever to discredit Johor or any other state,” he said.

Lim, however, did not admit making the statement and said he was still trying to locate the recording of what he said in Singapore.

I thought I have seen and heard what he said on TV3 Buletin Utama a few days ago. And I believe millions of Malaysian saw it too.

Lim should be glad that no legal action is taken against him, maybe not just yet. A simple apology may just suffice, he thought. Elsewhere, some parties are also him to make amends to what he said in the Republic.

Some people suggested he should be banned from entering Johor for a stipulated period. "If he can ease himself over a simple apology, he will do it again... and offer another apology."

HRH sultan of johor is a good man. i just dont know is the apology is good enough to mend all the broken hearts in the state.

guan should learn a lesson that as a politician, he should watch his tongue.

i believe the next time he does it, he will lose it!

salam bang

ahli politik pembangkang ni dah melampau. sentiasa cakap yang bukan2, pembohong dan mengada-adakan cerita karut.

kalau beginilah kita nak jadi pemimpin, lupakanlah.

elok duduk rumah buat anak je, lagi baik.

haram jadah punya orang!

dia lupa asal-usulnya. bapaknya kit siang berasal dari batu pahat. guan eng sendiri pernah sekolah di sana.

kalau lah baginda sultan haramkan si haram jadah ni daripada memijak bumi johor lagi, maka tak bolehlah dia melangkah sempadan negeri tu.

itulah akibatnya bercakap tak guna otak untuk fikir dulu
