RPK on The Eve of by-Elections
RPK was at Permatang Pauh last night to speak to the supporters. Rumours are that one of the organizers told him that technically he coudnt speak to the crowd as he was not covered under the police permit. You know what happens when you piss RPK off?
Excerpts from his speech :
He reminded the crowd of about 2,000-2,500 ( and the police ) that his grandfather, Raja Sir Tun Uda, was once the governor of Penang.
“This is my grandfather’s state”, he roared to the loud approval of the crowd.
He reminded the crowd that we would not have achieved independence from the British if the UMNO leaders were not allowed to travel the length and breadth of the country to spread the spirit and message of ‘Merdeka’.
“The Constitution guarantees us the right of speech and expression”.
No concerns of a lack of a permit was going to stop this anak Bangsa Malaysia tonight.
“Is this the government that we now have after we got rid of the British? If so, I would rather have the British back”.
