One often hears politicians make statements that are out of this world.

But Sports Minister Dato Shabery Cheek should surely be in contention for a bloopers award for making two within a few days.

First he said that Lee Chong Wei will NOT be allowed to march at the Olympics since they want to PROTECT his ankle.

So did you make arrangements to fly him in FITST Class to London as flying economy is a little cramped?

That is not all for who is the Minister to decide who marches or not.

Then the mother of all statements as seen below, that the Pahang Sukma is the best.

Obviously that is a cliche kind of statement as his definition is the best comes from the fact that no protests were lodged.

I will give it to you for making sports a joke.

KEMAMAN, July 14 (Bernama) — The ongoing 15th Malaysia Games (Sukma) in in Pahang can be considered to be among the best as no complaints or protests have been received from the contingents, especially in subjective sports, said Youth and Sport Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek.

He said he was satisfied with the organising of the Games which reflected that Pahang, as the hosted, were well-prepared.

“I am happy because there are no complaints or protests in the subjective sports as sometimes judges are said to give an advantage to the hosts,” he said.

He was speaking to reporters after launching the Kemaman Umno Women, Youth and Puteri delegates meeting, here Saturday.
