Shafee Apdal is of Nasri’s caliber – talking nonsense. The Education Ministry is irresponsible, insensitive and completely shameless.

If people like Nasri, who shoot off their mouths like this can be elevated to be ministers in government, there are millions more qualified citizens out there who talk better sense and who should replace such irresponsible characters. Can’t wait to see the back of him. He thinks the Orang Asli and the general public are stupid. Should he get away with such an insult? The electorate must decide.

When half past six and no integrity and no shame politicians sit in positions of responsibility….what we get is a fantastic government for a third world country.
