That’s funny, Zaid!

In case you missed it, here’s a reminder that Zaid Ibrahim is no lightweight and can indeed deliver some nice blows to his political adversaries, and also do it with a dash of piercing sarcasm.

Zaid, I had a real good chuckle seeing your tweets about Muhyiddin possibly having read Animal Farm and also on Ibrahim Ali’s comment regarding revoking parliamentary immunity.

The thought crossed my mind that perhaps you were being too generous and complimentary to Muhyiddin in presuming that the man might have actually read Animal Farm "many times" to appreciate that while we’re presumably all equal, some of us are more equal than others. But then as I thought about your words, it occurred to me that one could also see another less generous interpretation. Either way, Zaid, it’s funny.

The same goes for your terse remark about Ibrahim’s novel idea about revoking parliamentary immunity. Must be nice to know that we have such brilliant minds and role models in Umno to lead the way for us all!

Keep up the good fight, Zaid.
