BN puts snakes to shame

comments     Dean Johns     Published     Updated

As an ardent environmentalist, I’m every bit as much in favour of snakes as of any other creatures in creation. Besides, my beloved elder son was born in a Snake year. So I feel no pangs, let alone fangs, in heartily joining the chorus of Gong Xi Fa Cai as we all welcome the Year of the Snake.

It can’t be denied, however, that though in fact most species are completely harmless to humans, snakes have historically had a bad rep as symbols of evil and cunning.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
