Oik’s Plonker of the Year Award

Plonker is British slang for a silly or stupid person. I have read some prime examples of people making silly or stupid remarks lately.  So much so, that I’ve decided to create an award for it. What I plan to do is list them all down in this post as and when I find them, and at the end of the year decide on who among them  has uttered the most idiotic words. Perhaps I’ll organize a poll and send the winner a nice little trophy.

I would like to get the ball rolling with the person who inspired this whole exercise, someone the Malaysian Insider hails as a “constitutional expert” despite having only been practicing law for less than 4 years:

  • The Bar Council’s constitutional law committee chief made a very bold statement today by saying that Islam is not the official religion of Malaysia. Here is what the Malaysian Insider report that broke the news says:

“In terms of the Federal Constitution, there’s only one religion for the federation, no official or unofficial. The Constitution is clear on this. Islam is not the official religion,” he said to The Malaysian Insider when contacted yesterday.

He cited Article 3 as stating “Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation” and pointed out the word “official” was nowhere in the provision.

So, there we have it. It’s that simple.  The Constitution doesn’t actually mention the word “official”, so Islam cannot be the “official” religion of this country. How very profound!

This has got me to thinking – what else have those evil powers-that-be fooled us into thinking are “official” but actually are not? Let’s look up our Constitution, shall we?

Hmm… Bahasa Malaysia is not the official language, The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is not the official Head of State…   OMG! OMG! OMG! MALAYSIA IS NOT THE OFFICIAL NAME OF OUR COUNTRY!!!

So take a bow, Mr Syahredzan Johan. For being an utterly pedantic, anal retentive tool, you have been given the honour of being the very first nominee for my prestigious Plonker of the Year award.
