Honourable real democrat would have resigned, like Cameron

Perhaps ‘we’ should resign too, Ambiga responds to PM’s tweet

Ambiga Sreenevasan is unable to make up her mind whether laughter or tears is the appropriate response to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak describing himself as a democrat.

“Did our PM just say ‘we’ democrats?

“I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry,” read the former Bar Council president’s tweet.

She was responding to Najib’s comments regarding the Brexit referendum, which saw Britons voting that their nation should quit the European Union.

“Maybe ‘we’ should resign too,” she said, alluding that Najib should perhaps follow in the footsteps of David Cameron, who announced that he would relinquish his prime minister post in October.

In his tweet on the referendum, Najib said the British voters had spoken.

“As democrats, we must respect the result.

“We wish our British friends well in the new future they have chosen,” he added.

Ambiga is among those who inked the Citizens’ Declaration which calls for Najib’s resignation.

Meanwhile, lawyer Syahredzan Johan also appeared to be referring to the prime minister’s tweet, saying: “Democrats do not arrest dissidents, fyi (for your information).”

“Seriously, much respect to Cameron for resigning after the referendum. I do not like him, but this is honourable on his part.

“He lost the referendum, not because he is implicated in some scandal. Yet he is honourable enough to step down,” he tweeted.

Earlier, Cameron revealed that he would resign by October.

“I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination,” he had told reporters.
