According to some translations, Cowardice is a trait wherein fear and excess self-concern override doing or saying what is right, good and of help to others or oneself in a time of need—it is the opposite of courage . As a label, "cowardice" indicates a failure of character in the face of a challenge.
DAP lawmaker Tony Pua said his decision to debate 1Malaysia Development Berhad president Arul Kanda Kandasamy was for the benefit of the people and their understanding of issues involving the state-owned investor.
Tony challenged and Arul accepted the challenge. Read Here .
Now Tony stated his additional condition. Only he allow to ask. Arul only answer. What type of debate will this be? Is it all because of Rafizi statement earlier saying that Arul was a good debater. Out of sudden, Tony drop his balls.
Basically, from few dictionary defination's of debate stated as a formal contest of argumentation in which two opposing teams defend and attack a given proposition. I wonder why out of sudden Tony looses his ball. To me , a leader like Tony who says something without thinking just to proved him a bad leader. Another example bad leader with bad judgement and decision. This time, he has been caught by his own words. Accept the debate in a universal debate format and reclaimed your pride and dignity if you still have it.
Today in DAP Selangor commitee election, Tony position drop from 2/15 before to 8/15 while Tony won the Selangor DAP Chairman post to Ronnie Liu by a single vote. Tony 8/15 and Ronnie 7/15. DAP members has already seen his bad leadership dangered the party.
Falsehood is cowardice, the truth courage.
