This photo (thanks to the Star)speaks volumes of the common decency that can be practised by politicians.
We have often witnessed the uglier side of politicians, with the crudes remarks made in Parliament and the sexist jokes that were common in the last sitting.
Hopefully, those episodes will be things of the past, with many of those MPs being shown the door in the last general elections.
Politics is the art or science of possibilities and there are no permanent enemies. Both federal and state leaders need to work closely together if the GDP figures are to be realised.
So this photo shows that both sides understand this need. The CM of Penang took the trouble to greet the PM, even though he was not on an official visit to the state and the PM responded with graciousness.
