To Tutu or Not to Tutu – part two

KUALA LUMPUR, April 5 — The government insisted today it did not receive a permit application for a Singapore ballet troupe to perform here despite organisers claiming the performances had been barred with no reason given.

Information, Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim (picture) told reporters this morning that Puspal, or the Central Agency for the Application for Filming and Performance by Foreign Artists, had not received an application for the set of shows originally slated for this weekend.

“I love all forms of the arts and theatre. Ballet should be encouraged,” he said when asked if he enjoyed ballet himself.”

Rais Yatim, like all Umno warolords, is easily aroused and has absolutely no self-control. It's best that beautiful men and women in tutus and tights be banned from our stages. The nation can ill afford yet another rape scandal.

Kejap ini kejap itu,
Pendirian yang tak kukuh;
To Tutu or Not to Tutu?
Cakap macam kepala 'X'utuh!

KLPACshould produce rejection letter if they have submitted.

All rejection or approval is in black and white, we all know that.

Now where is that letter?

Dont say KLPAC moves without that all important letter of approval.

Interesting note from your friend Fahri Azzat's interview : At about 1:48 min of the interview the person was describing tear gas cannisters were fired from the LRT station above the road. Did the policemen already planned to attack from strategic position? I read about the same description I think from a letter written to Malaysiakini from another person. DID THE POLICE ALREADY PLANNED TO ATTACK FROM STRATEGIC LOCATION ?????
