Giving Umno/BN the finger(s)

Opinion  |  Dean Johns
Published:  |  Modified:

As my fellow Malaysiakini columnist Mariam Mokhtar has already commented, a great many people were - or at least pretended to be - offended by human rights lawyer Siti Kasim’s giving hecklers the middle finger after she spoke at a syariah forum.

And I would like to say that I not only endorse every sentiment that Mariam expressed in support of Siti’s ‘up yours’ gesture and general attitude, but that I additionally find it absolutely inspirational.

Because it has pointed-out to me that what I’ve been actually been employing through all my years of pouring scorn and derision on Malaysia’s poisonous and pernicious regime is not just, as it’s most commonly called, a keyboard, but also a fingerboard.
