Why pay Tony Blair's PR Team millions of RM to polish up the administration image when it can just send a notice to the likes of Khairy Jamaluddin to shut up?
Khairy Jamaluddin suggested today there was nothing wrong with his remarks about allegations involving Lim Guan Eng’s teenage son, and called his critics hypocrites for pointing out that he was perpetrating lies about a member of a political rival’s family.
Responding via his Twitter account to the criticisms, the Umno Youth chief said Barisan Nasional (BN) politicians and their families had been on the receiving end of even worse insults from the Opposition in the last.
The sorry part is Khairy is supposed to be one of the smartest leaders in Umno. This episode has proven that Khairy may be book smart but not street smart. His statement is going to win Lim Guan Eng and his family more sympathy.
A tit for a tat here is going to cause Khairy and his party a lost of respect from the middle ground whom to their horror may find that their young children may not be free and safe from the ugly side of politicking in Malaysia.
Lim's young son has been dragged into Khairy's political game despite being just 16 years old. Leave the young man alone. He is only in his puberty.
Khairy should be reminded of a picture of him holding a can of beer circulating around on the Internet. It hurts. I did not think it was big deal. So what if even Khairy were to drink a bit. At least he was not a hypocrite.
Those high fliers who were recently hired into the PM's office as his PR backbone should learn the art of using stick and carrot to maintain decorum in the party. Otherwise months of solid PR work can be destroyed by a minute of 'shiok' statement like one just made by Khairy against Lim's young son.
