A wily wolf backtracks

"Hue and cry over a small 'j'" and thus, the front page story in The SUN paper today says it all.

Opposition leader Lim Kit Siang rightly kicked up a huge fuss over the proposed set-up of a Parliament Department by Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz and promptly called for a roundtable involving 30 opposition MPs and NGO reps in Parliament yesterday morning.

What is amusing is the manner in which the expected fireworks fizzled out without so much of a whimper when Nazri managed to diffuse the tension with an ingenious explanation of the differences between "jabatan" and "Jabatan" in reference to the proposed department. That "slippery than an eel" move surely deserves a nomination for best actor award in the long-running Dewan Rakyat drama.

Hopefully, that will be the end of this matter and the MPs can go back to debating the more interesting AP issue?
