What a Member of Parliament!
Here's the controversial UMNO Barisan Member of Parliament, Badruddin Amiruldin, who once offended the disabled with his remarks that God had punished the parliamentary opposition M.P. Karpal Singh by making him a handicap, putting his foot in his mouth again. The extract is from Malaysiakini-the news portal with guts.
This was the exchange between Wanita (Women) UMNO Kubang Kerian Chief Zaleha Hussin and M.P. of Jerai, Badruddin Amiruldin at last week's Umno AGM.
Zaleha: The provocative uniform must be changed to something reflective of Eastern values and which complies with the values of Islam.
Badruddin: I think their skirts are too short.
Zaleha: Cloth can be bought.
Badruddin: I think they don’t have enough cloth.
Zaleha pressed her point further by relating how the uniform had ‘affected’ one of her friends, leading Badruddin to pass another cheeky remark.
Zaleha: She said a flight attendant sat in front of her and she could see her legs, thighs and knees. She was so embarrassed!
Badruddin: Did she see the tunnel? [crowd roars with laughter]
