乔治王有句名言名震江湖,可是事隔多年,很多人忘记了他的名言,所以选情不妙时,好些部长竞相道歉,他却以“谏议大夫”自居,掌声如潮。向来被视为“学者”风范的“君子”,也会说出这句浑话,权力腐蚀之言不假:

“草民要参与政治辩论,得先谨记自己在社会上的地位…辩论不能变成一场没大没小的自由混战,双方不能没有高级和低级的区分…你必须区分什么是高等,什么是低等,谁在上,谁在下,然后在这范畴内,才来跟我们辩论、讨论…人民不应把掌权者视为与自己‘同等’”

“Remember your place in society before you engage in political debate… Debate cannot degenerate into a free-for-all where no distinction is made between the senior and junior party… You must make distinctions – What is high, what is low, what is above, what is below, and then within this, we can have a debate, we can have a discussion… people should not take on those in authority as ‘equals’ ” 杨荣文,海峡时报:20-2-1995
