New Bolehland Politickus statistics finding : Bloggers are Liars, 80% are Unemployed Women
From a deep link from Teh Ernie, J-talk just translate some big mouth Malaysia politikus latest statistic creation. You can read the whole English translation here : Tengku Adnan: Bloggers are Liars, 80% are Unemployed Women .
The source is in mandarin. The politkus speech is NOT replicate to OTHER medium, such as English and Malays mainstream paper. Apparently, some politikus are so smart-alecks and think they can get away from it. I bet they will use the usual lame excuses “I am misquoted” statement, but making stupid statement on International Woman Day, just double their level of stupidness.
Although I don’t like to Cut and Paste other people contents, in case Jerry Who are “force” to take down the translated news.
Here is the translation by Jerry Who , have fun.
Tengku Adnan: Bloggers are Liars
80% are Unemployed Women
updated:2007-03-08 20:11:32: MYT
(Kuala Lumpur) The Tourism Minsiter Tunku Adnan lashed out today (Mar 8, 2007) that all bloggers on the Internet are liars, out of which 80% are unemployed women.
“All bloggers are liars, they cheat people using all kinds of methods. From my understanding, out of 10,000 unemployed bloggers, 8,000 are women.”
Tengku was addressing the media at the 2007 Malaysia GP Sales when he was asked about allegations made on a blog by a female TV presenter. The guests present were shocked at first, but burst into laughter.
He said he may lose some female voters but did not retract his statement or indicate that he was just joking.
He said that bloggers spread rumours, disrupt social harmony and many bloggers are slanderous and are cheating people with their blogs.
“All bloggers are not in favour of national unity. Our country has been successful because we are very tolerant with each other, if not, there will be civil war, the Malays will kill the Chinese, the Chinese will take revenge and kill the Malays, and the Indian will kill everyone.”
He urged the rakyat not to simply trust bloggers, and gamble our future away because the achievement we gain in the 50 years of independence is not an easy task.
“We have to show the world our positive attitude, if the world learn to be as tolerant as us, the world will be peaceful, without war or civil war.”
He said that the tourism ministry has been promoting the country for the rakyat’s benefit, not just to benefit his own ministry.
He stressed that the Malaysian tourism industry is now in a critical moment as the competition from the neighbouring countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines will be stiffer and Malaysia must respond proactively.
Oh my dear, I saw “yet another politickus that sleep on statistic class”. Instead of using 80%, he insist to use 8,000 out of 10,000. But this can be forgiven as politckus are learn to use number to exaggerate their speech. But what most intrigue me is the way he derive the number.
Even better, he never fail to state unemployed woman. Seems he has some “reservation”, since we don’t know whether housewife are part of this “80% unemployed woman”.
I wonder what happens if I mail this “Bloggers are Liars, 80% are Unemployed Women” to some of this “possible unemployed female/women bloggers”.
Let me list some of this “unemployed female” :
5xmom , Freelunch2020, Reta, FireAngel, the Suanie , Lulu , Marina Mahathir, and not to forget our Sassy MP Teresa Kok,….. and many female blogger around the world.
