"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

What the English speak

BBC News - Today - Colonial input 'beats English smugness'

"The British do have a condescension chromosome.

And some English have been at Oxford so long they have ivory growing up the backs of their legs, and what they graduated in is advanced smugness when it comes to their colonial cousins... you need little United Nations headphones to decode what English is saying, because you don't speak English, you speak euphemism.

So, you know, when they used to say to me 'Oh you Australians. So refreshing'. I mean, for a while I thought that that meant you really really liked me. Exactly.

But what that really means is "rack off you loud-mouthed colonial nymphomaniac""
