KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 7 — Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz called Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad a “bloody racist” for defending the Biro Tata Negara (BTN) courses, and reasserted the Cabinet’s earlier decision to overhaul the programme.
He also slammed Umno’s Utusan Malaysia newspaper, saying its “denial syndrome” was making him laugh.
The minister in the prime minister’s department also repeated his stand “everybody knows what the BTN is,” so there was nothing to hide.
“You must be a Malaysian whether you’re a minister or not. You must walk your talk. Don’t just because when you were PM, you wanted everyone to support you, you’re Malaysian and the moment you’re no longer PM, that’s it, only talk about the Malays so I cannot accept his comment. When you read his blog it is bloody racist.
“I strongly feel the BTN courses must be in line with the 1 Malaysia slogan by the PM,” he said.
Dr Mahathir had said yesterday that there was no need to revamp BTN’s training modules in the current form and that it was suitable for instilling the patriotic spirit among Malaysians.

**Let's just fasten our seat-belts, and hold back the standing ovation for now, folks - this may just be a prelude to something nasty which they have up their sleeves. After all, Nazri of all people, isn't really known for being honest or advocating pluralism, In fact, he's taken to "talking cock" like ducks to water - and has taken it to great heights, I might add. Donno about you - but I for one, would rather err on the side of caution.
Only time will tell if he will flip-flop on this statement, or resort to "redefining" it- after all it is the trademark of those in UMNO, who work with deceit as their raison-d'etre.
Let's see where he goes from here ....
