Education or increducation?
Whenever I hear that former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been holding forth on the topic of language, I’m reminded of the quip attributed to the late, great wit Dorothy Parker about a female celebrity who was as famously multilingual as she was notoriously sexually promiscuous: “That woman speaks 18 languages and can’t say ‘no’ in any of them”.
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 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.
