UPDATE! 1430hrs 12/12/13
Was informed that the Malacca State Secretary's officers are currently preparing a brief statement to REVOKE Idris's statement about wanting to award the PGB.
Was told that even Malacca Governor Tun Khalil Yaakob was shocked by Idris statement.
Who ordered the State Secretary to revoke the silly statement? Idris... oh Idris! Kenapa kau Idris?
Not sure if this newly minted magnanimous Chief Minister of Malacca did the necessary before making the announcement to award the prestigious medal of bravery to the 11 commando trainees and their trainers. (Idris is magnanimous coz he recently said something like 'I forgive the Chinese for not supporting BN)
Certainly this is not a clever decision. It is a populist decision that would have damaging repercussions. Idris appears like nothing but a desperate politician. I'm sure the real recipients of the prestigious PGB would be shell shocked with yet another act of stupidity from the government.
CM Idris, please don't forget all those commando trainees who have lost their lives while undergoing training in Terendak since the camp was commissioned there a few decades ago. Going by your standards they surely deserve a PGB…don't they?
When will such stupidity come to an end? We had dummies with Pingat Kedaulatan Negara a few months ago.
