Terlajak perahu boleh diundur, Terlajak kata buruk padahnya

The Jalur Gemilang, Malaysia's National Flag

A couple of days ago DAP lawyer and ADUN for Kota Alam uttered something in his Facebook wall that he will regret for the rest of his political life. By posting that our National flag the Jalur Gemilang should be changed as it resembled a BN flag, he has attracted as much flak and brickbat as PAS's Mat Sabu who said the Communist Mat Indera is a hero. Read here and here.

To be fair he did offer an apology which was rather gentlemanly considering PAS's Mat Sabu remained defiant and refused to apologise for his ill advised statement hailing a communist terrorist who murdered  police constables their wives and children at Bukit Kepong in 1950 as a national hero. Too bad for Mano, for BN its like "bulan jatuh atas riba" and poor Mano has  been made cannon fodder since the Facebook posting.

The DAP and their Pakatan partners are in sixes and sevens trying to defend their position and has since distanced themselves from Mano's politically suicidal post on the Jalur Gemilang. I am quite sure that many fence sitters, the voters who determines how big a party wins or loses in elections are greatly displeased and not amused with Mano the DAP Adun and by extension the DAP as a whole  and the Pakatan component parties PAS and PKR generally.

Its look like Mano's trouble its not over yet, in fact I think his political life with the DAP will soon end:

Flak over flag issue may cost Mano seat

Maybe its for the better, and Mano the lawyer can always try for the Presidency of the Bar Council.
