COMMENT | I’m glad that Chubby Checker is still around today. The “king of the twist” in the 1960’s, is 77. Compared to our 93-year-old paramount leader, that’s relatively young.

And Checker is still twisting today while our national captain is still cycling, driving and horse-riding. These healthy activities will certainly keep them going.

If I know Checker personally. I would invite him to Kuala Lumpur to give some Malaysian ‘idiots’ a real, good tongue-lashing – one they will never forget. The twisted tongue has to be re-adjusted and Mr Twister himself is the right man for the job.

I would request Checker to sing and dance to his popular hit “The Twist” and invite Chief Justice Richard Malanjun, de facto law minister Liew Vui Keong and Attorney-General Tommy Thomas on stage to dance along...
