Gays, womanizers can now stand for general election
NOW EVERYONE CAN STAND. I'd recommend you read the Haris Ibrahim interview in the Star yesterday on Haris Ibrahim and Raja Petra "You're A Liar and A Coward" Kamaruddin's Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement. Seasoned journo Shahanaz asked some cheeky questions about gays, womanizers and Muslims who drink which, I must say, were mostly answered well by this unconventional lawyer.
What's even more interesting, to me is that a so-called pro-Government newspaper like the Star is not afraid to give a so-called voice of dissent space; even more interesting is to know that Haris is still willing to talk to the mainstream media despite having little, or no faith in it.
I always believe that the "conversation" must go one, no matter which side of the political fence your plate's on.
