But the English being English (the most beautiful language in the world), FIDDLE sounded better than lyre. Anachronistic, but it's impact that matters. You don’t lyre with the accounts….it sounds better when you fiddle with the books (of course our accountants today prefers to use the word “massage”, euphemistically it sounds more sexual and less jarring, this
caressing, massaging) or “if you fiddle with that remote control one more time, you'll go to your room.” Or “an editor who fiddled with the facts” …. (Modern version, spin of course) ….or “the Election Commission playing second fiddle to the government in office…..and how about this…. he fiddled his way into a position of a toyboy….. or fiddle with the postal votes or gerrymandering! Yah….I can come up with more fiddles but I don’t want it said that I am always on the fiddle (dishonest)to the government!
So this question in regards to Bukit Merah (past and present) Bukit Koman (very much present) and Lynas (immediate present):
ARE OUR NEROs DISPLAYING HEEDLESS AND IRRESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOUR WHILST THE COUNTRY IS SET TO RADIOACTIVE BURN? ARE OUR EMPERORS LOSING THEIR MINDS? ARE THEY WORSHIPPING MONEY? FIDDLING WITH OUR MONEY? DANG! STOP FIDDLING WITH OUR LIVES TOO!
