Remember the Utusan Malaysia reporter who thought 'ultra vires' means to insult..... and to him Karpal Singh insulting the Sultan of Perak.
As a result of his poor English he has disseminated wrong message to the public and created chaos in the seditious case against DAP leader Karpal Singh.
Well, read the piece below from fugitive blogger Raja Petra on bad English and the 'bodoh sombong' culture among some Malaysians which in Malay would mean 'orang yang tidak mahu belajar dan tidak mahu diajar.
Worse, the smart-aleck or pretender of know-it-all refused to ask what they don't know.
In Sabah we have one word for it 'temberang'
The problem, however, they told me, is that I write in English while the readers who had made police reports against me do not understand English that well. So, because of their poor command of English, they have misunderstood what I had written and thought that I had insulted Islam.
NO HOLDS BARRED

DAP chairman Karpal Singh was cleared of sedition today without his defence being called.
The Bukit Gelugor MP was charged with sedition last year for saying the Sultan of Perak could be taken to court over the removal of Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin as the mentri besar.
The High Court here found the prosecution had failed to prove it had a case against him.
In his decision today, judge Azman Abdullah noted that the news reporters, key witnesses and police involved did not understand English and the meaning of sedition. -- The Malaysian Insider
