The likes of Khairy, in calling bloggers “monkeys‘ should be more sensitive and try not to insult our primate brothers and sisters. Please keep yourselves updated with what’s happening in the world these days. that is, if you have such high ambitions of becoming the PRIME MINISTER!
Referring to bloggers, Khairy had said: “There are no laws in the cyberworld except for the law of the jungle. As such, action must be taken so that the “monkeys” behave”.
i wonder what these animal rights activists (below) would say to Khairy ‘monkeying’ around with bloggers, if only they knew.
CBS news reported :
“In a case that could set a global legal precedent for granting basic rights to apes, animal rights advocates are seeking to get the 26-year-old male chimpanzee legally declared a “person.”

Hiasl’s supporters argue he needs that status to become a legal entity that can receive donations and get a guardian to look out for his interests.”Our main argument is that Hiasl is a person and has basic legal rights,” said Eberhart Theuer, a lawyer leading the challenge on behalf of the Association Against Animal Factories, a Vienna animal rights group.
“We mean the right to life, the right to not be tortured, the right to freedom under certain conditions,” Theuer said. “We’re not talking about the right to vote here.” (AP, read this here)
