What was the Penang Government was thinking when they came out with this bright idea?
I agree that winning the silver medal in the Olympics is no small feat – to be one of the best in the world and therefore it deserves the right rewards and gratitude but don’t you think giving “Datukship” has gone a bit too far?
GEORGE TOWN:Olympic silver medallist Lee Chong Wei is to be made a Datuk by the Penang Government.
Another datukship wasted on another young promising Malaysian.
What is this? Certainly datukship in Malaysia is coming down to a whole new level. What next? Datukship for those who can eat the most sausages within a minute? Don’t be surprised – it could happen!
We appreciate Lee Chong’s winning in the Olympics but at this rate of handing over Datukships for any achievements under the sun, we may come to a situation where the non-Datuks will be minorities.
It would have been better if any method of rewards could have been granted by the State Government but granting Datukship….is just too soon, too high.
