An article in the Malay Mail today is headlined, ‘Penang insists Bersih Merdeka theme not linked to rallies’.
The same piece of news is also reported in TMI.
The ‘Bersih’ theme picked by Penang for the state’s Aug 31 National Day celebration is purely coincidental, konon. Penang Chief Minister (II) insists that their Bersih slogan has got “nothing to do with rally”.
Yeah, right. (Deny, deny, deny…)
And why must Penang reject the ‘Sehati sejiwa’ theme adopted by all the other Malaysian states for Hari Merdeka? Penangites behave like they live in another country Singapore North, maybe.
