Malaysian’s Great Debate 2012: Chua Soi Lek – Lim Guan Eng Debate Circus

debate funny cartoon

(The built-up to the debate between 2 political parties that represented the Chinese community with elections just around the corner somehow fizzled out when the debate actually started and it deteriorated further on there onwards. Image source: The Week)

The blogger apologised but here is best part, she said:-

“It was merely out of anger so I did not construct my sentences properly. Maybe it was my bad English”

Bad English? Perhaps she needs to read that with this. Is “Bad English” the same with “The Press Misquoted Me”?… [Click to read the rest] “If apologised, all settled?”
