Malaysian police officers to use English
with immediate effect,
following Dr Mahathir's directive
That's as reported by a Singaporean publication.
Well, that's good I think.
I always wish our cops could speak better English.
You know lah, in Malaysia many people could speak perfect English but can't speak Bahasa Malaysia very well.
Like our Attorney-General.
So, it's better to have policemen speaking the same language as our prosecutors.
They want to saman people who drive fast Mercedes also easier.
Rich people normally prefer to speak in English.
Yup, I think this is a good move.
Maybe we should extend the same thing to the entire civil service.
The armed forces too.
Defence Minister Mat Sabu needs to brush up his English too lah ya.
As it is, some people refused to learn the national language because they don't think it's classy enough to speak it.
So, better to just use English.
Broken English a bit like mine also can do one.
Still better than Bahasa Malaysia, I think.
Come to think of it, maybe we could even have our parliament sessions in English too.
Like in Sarawak.
Better la than this,
Better broken English than broken Bahasa Malaysia, okay.
