Why Not Have a Woman Prime Minister Instead?

That's one benefit of sending our leaders on all-expense paid holidays abroad - they come back with such interesting ideas.

This latest idea is a gem. He wants to encourage our Malaysian lasses to handle heavy duty jobs like handling construction equipment.

Maybe he does not know that already women make up more than 65% of the students in the universities and if the women take on more jobs "reserved" for men, what are the men going to do with fewer jobs available? More recruits for the "Mat Rempit?"

Why not suggest that women should also strive to become the Menteri Besar or even the Prime Minister? Now that is one idea I can support.
