Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin (“Pride of Malaysia”)

This chap gives the ex-Iraqi information minister a run for his money. The link is to a video and a much needed transcript. In the space of a few minutes, the good Datuk manages to slag off al-Jazeera, ramble completely incoherently and accuse his interviewer of exaggerating “more than what actually happened”. To which the response is, in an immaculate British accent, “As you say that, sir, we’re watching scenes of protesters being sprayed by chemical-filled water!” Now there’s a quote for the ages.

With his unique command of English, Mr Maidin could find a second job as a tech support officer.
