Should Abused Malaysian Women Strike in Bed?

Coming so soon after the "bocor" remarks of those boorish BN MPs, the latest remark by a senior minister really shows the contempt with which these men treat women in general and opposition women MPs in particular.

It is time for women voters to teach these immature men some basic human decency by voting them out in the next elections. In fact women groups could exert some bedroom politics by pointing out to their menfolk that these remarks are really hurtful and totally unacceptable.

That may not change the government but some MPs may be dropped from the slate.
Such experienced so-called leaders should be more skillful when making remarks in a press conference.
“A woman 50 years ago, she looks beautiful, but today she won't look so beautiful,” was attributed to Samy Vellu.

After all women make up about 50% of voters and describing a woman especially with reference to the total neglect of the Parliament building is most inappropriate no matter how much the speaker believes the remark.

It would have been a simple matter to simply change the subject for maintenance to a more neutral topic like the maintenance of a 10-year old car.

The abuse of women sometimes is prolonged when the victims accept the abuse as inevitable and even worse some women even believe they are the cause for the men's behaviour and tolerate such abuse.

With such inept thinking it is no wonder that the ship called Malaysia is sinking.

Now the PWD is going "to assemble a team of engineers and architects to look into the roofing, wiring and other problems plaguing the 43-year-old building."

So am I wrong to assume that the RM90 mil renovations was for furniture, fixtures and fittings only ?

Wah, that is almost half the stated cost of the PM's house in Putrajaya !!

We don't have a proper "preventive maintenance" culture - ours is the reactive type. It's just like refusing to change the engine oil, plugs, filters, etc, for your car until it breaksdown. Then the repairs will cost a fortune.
