Opposition MPs have accused Deputy Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Willie Mongin of making an obscene gesture in the Dewan Rakyat as the sitting was adjourned to make way for another bloc vote.
Fahmi Fadzil (Harapan-Lembah Pantai) and Kasthuri Patto (Harapan-Batu Kawan) took to their social media and posted about the alleged incident.
They accused Willie of showing his middle finger to the opposition MPs and demanded Speaker Azhar Azizan Harun take action.
The session was, however, adjourned and their microphones were turned off.
Willie denied the matter.
“I would like to stress that the allegation is not true and maybe they had mistakenly seen it,” he said after the session resumed.
Willie says what others say they saw is untrue.
However, why would he not ‘show the finger’ at his former allies, now languishing in opposition thanks to his betrayal?
After all, he has shown the finger to all those who voted for him. He has shown the finger to those who soldiered for years to create and sustain the party which he joined (PKR) to get his seat.
And, of course, he has shown the finger to his former allies in PH whom he ditched to join up with a bunch of Malay Muslim supremacists, who preach that the people whom Willie represents (largely Dayak Christians) should know their place as second class citizens in Malaysia.
In return, he has got a second rate minister’s job, a car and plenty of opportunities to enhance his lifestyle in the process. Compared to that, so what if he chooses to show his finger in a vulgar, juvenile gesture towards those of studier morals when it comes to fulfilling their pledges to the public?
