Interpretation of Opposition

Kelantan State Assembly: BN members stage walkout

OPPOSITION members staged a walkout yesterday after Datuk Nozula Mat Diah (BN-Paloh) was not permitted to speak in the debate on the motion to thank Sultan Ismail Petra for his opening speech.

– quoted from an article published in NST on 22nd November 2007 (link)

I was puzzled for a brief moment upon reading the start of this article. Then I realised, silly me – the Opposition in Kelantan means BN! I wonder what it is like there, when people like Nazri are saying, “so and so are behaving like the Opposition” and similar negative remarks. Do Kelantanese have a strong hatred of the Opposition and share Nazri’s views without realising that they both interpret the word differently?

Its an amusing thought.
