A Most Silly Idea. Rais Yatim's ratings with Malaysian women took a nosedive into a dried-up swimming pool today. His ministry's proposal to compel every woman to get a written consent from her family if she plans to travel abroad alone has been described as nuts and biased.
"One step closer to Saudi Arabia," one commenter wrote to Nuraina A. Samad in response to her posting last night here.
Marina Mahathir, who says she travels abroad alone almost all the time, did not conceal her disappointment with the Minister in her posting here. "I have to say that I always thought that Dr Rais was much smarter than this."
Another blogger, here, suggests that "all Ministers and politicians DECLARE what they bring in and out of the country, where they are going to, and who they are going with!!! To make sure these jokers don't songlap anymore of our money or have sexcapades at OUR expense!!!"
