怒氣衝天【老馬女兒開炮巫統大會】結果直接被星報砍....!快看!那幫簡直是人獸!

社運分子拿汀巴杜卡瑪麗娜馬哈迪今日宣布,暫停在英文報章《星報》寫每週專欄,因為她上週的專欄文章並沒有被該報刊登。 停登一期文章 瑪麗娜斬《星報》專欄

她說,文章被拒是因為內容提及到最近舉行的巫統大會。

瑪麗娜今日在面子書貼文說,她不會責怪該報的編輯,知道他們是盡力而為,原因是若他們讓文章見報,將面對麻煩。

她強調不會因此而停止寫作,並會尋求另一個平台,如社交媒體的面子書或部落格,繼續發表看法。

「寫作畢竟是我表達自己的方式,但我想更真實地寫作,沒有太多的約束。」

以下就是馬哈迪女兒在FB寫的文章。

Hi folks, today my column was supposed to be published as usual. But it's not, not because it was spiked (like the last one) but because I am getting rather tired of trying to say things in a way that gets it published. My editors are not to blame, they try their best but life gets difficult for them if they let some of what I say through. But I don't want to sound happy when I'm not, satisfied with everything when I'm not, or to talk about other irrelevant things when there are so many elephants in the room. I don't want to be pessimistic and I would like to give everyone hope but it's not easy these days.

So I think I will take a peak for a while. As a columnist, I have been very disciplined with several years in a row where I never missed a deadline, no matter where I am. My editor tells me that I am always the earliest to submit, even when I think I'm just sliding into deadline home. So I reckon I deserve a sabbatical.

It doesn't mean I will stop writing altogether. Writing after all is the way I express myself. But I would like to write more authentically, without too many restraints and constraints. So I may just use FB more, rather than return to my blog. I just find blogging takes up too much time with having to do links, photos etc.

So for those who miss my column, sorry about that. For those who didn't notice, that's OK. I will miss my column in a way because after writing it for more than 25 (yes!) years, it has become very much part of my life, a very disciplined part of it. Nothing hones one's craft quite like having to do it regularly over and over again. And it keeps me aware and constantly having to learn about what's going on. It's been a gift and a privilege, it really has.

But I want to be able to sit and reflect, to really have the time to form my thoughts more clearly. There is so much that is going on, some good, much bad, but I feel that I am so busy that I never have time to just sit and think. I'd like to be more like Winnie the Pooh: 'sometimes I sits and thinks. And sometimes I just sits.'

So I'm not going to disappear completely. Nobody needs to cheer that I'm going to shut up. Because I'm not. I just want to do things a little differently.

Cheers!
