Karpal Singh: Shabery should be ashamed

Karpal Singh: Shabery should be ashamed

PETALING JAYA (May 15, 2008): Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek should be the last person to label members of opposing parties switching sides as "political prostitutes" since he himself had done so, said DAP chairman Karpal Singh.

Shabery also said only those addicted to prostitution would use such a method to achieve political satisfaction.

Karpal Singh stressed that he himself did not subscribe to crossovers. "To me they are political kangaroos who betray the very people who voted them," he said.
"Shabery appears to have a short memory," said Karpal Singh.

"He, together with his political master Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah disbanded Semangat 46 and engaged in full-scale "political prostitution" by crossing over lock, stock and barrel to the Barisan Nasional," he added.

Karpal Singh said Shabery and his compatriots in the now defunct Semangat 46 have no business now to speak from a high moral ground.
"His statement against crossovers constitutes undiluted and unadulterated hypocrisy for which he should be ashamed," he said.

Karpal Singh said Shabery should take time off to ponder over the following adage: "Those who live in glass houses should draw the curtains before undressing."

By hitting out at crossovers, Shabery has undressed himself without drawing the curtains, thereby showing the whole world the naked truth.

Seals: Lolz, It is normal for them but when it is others, it is wrong.
