Sultan says it without saying it


Biadap and derhaka are very strong words and today both PKR and DAP got a fair share of those words from none other than the Sultan of Selangor himself, via his private secretary.

Sultan Sharafuddin not only reprimanded those badly brought-up politicians and their ilk but also sent a strong, crystal clear message that it was his prerogative to appoint the chief executive of his state from among the elected representatives occupying the State Assembly.

Read the Sultan's strong message in The Mole - Sultan Sharafuddin will evaluate all Pas and PKR assemblymen for Mentri Besar post

I'm quite sure the time is now right for embattled Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim to dedicate Frank Sinatra's My Way to Anwar Ibrahim and his wives now.

p/s If I'm in Khalid's shoes, I'll give him a finger... I mean show him my finger.

Am I correct these are what the words mean in English?

BIADAP = BELLIGERENT = inclined to or exhibiting assertiveness with hostility, or combativeness

DERHAKA = REBELLIOUS = refusing to obey rules, or authority, or to accept normal standards of behavior, dress, etc. ; having or showing a tendency to rebel.

Isteri telah di tolak. Terpaksa buat satu lagi langkah, paksa seorang lagi ADUN letak jawatan dan letak Nurul Izzah sebagai calon. Selepas itu, bila menang, calonkan anak janda pula sebagai menteri besar. Jangan risau pengundi Selangor yang bangang akan pilih Izzah, tapi agak kurang pasti jika Istana boleh terima janda berskandal sebagai calon mb.

Akhirnya pasti langkah mayat.

fyi derhaka is more than "rebellious" it is treachery, treacherous. traitor, traitorous, betrayal. it is used in the context of parent/child and citizen/sultan/country not in the context of employer/employee.

This is a fraught area.

It's not that straightforward.

What about the right to "freedom of speech" and the right to be able to express one's opinions?

What about the hoary adage of earning respect before demanding respect?

Are the royal institutions immune from criticism? Are their acts and policies beyond fair comment?

In a parliamentary democracy, what counts?
