Should MCA blame UMNO for the election losses?

大选以后,很多人痛批巫统过去的傲慢和独裁,是促成其他成员党兵败如山的关键因素。身为马华的一份子,我不想过于着墨抨击巫统,我认为当务之急应该纠正马华本身的错误和弱点,自我强化。

许多选民告诉我,过去,马华自称是华社的代表,在处理问题上,马华总会长一直主张马华不唱高调,只求成效、不空喊口号;马华要内部协商解决问题,不大事渲染、不煽动情绪。但是在人民看来,马华每每面对大课题时都不敢吭声、逆来顺受。
在HINDRAF的事件,我曾公开指出那不仅仅是印度族群的自家事,而是关乎全民的课题。在一个多元种族的社会里,我们必须确保没有任何一个种族感到被边缘化。国阵若要贯彻真正的政权分享,就应该正视HINDRAF所提出的诉求,而不是把球踢给印度社群和印度领袖。虽然有关事件扰攘了一段日子,但马华一直没有鲜明的立场。另一个例子是林甘短片风波。在许多大课题上,尽管有一、两位马华领袖有回应或评论,但马华的最高领导层始终保持缄默,相信这是造成人民认为马华在冬眠的原因。

马华在过去几年极力提倡健康政治文化,但谈到查卡利亚的“皇宫”事件,马华却噤若寒蝉。我相信华社因此认为马华太软弱甚至甘于屈服于巫统,马华的作风无法说服华社我们捍卫华社权益。另一方面,在关乎全民利益的课题上,国阵包括马华也没有积极表现要共同努力解决,这使到人民生气。

如果我们认为,宣布华教拨款、搬迁和增建华校、争取几个奖学金代表马华就是捍卫和争取华社权益的先锋,那我们是在梦里自我沉醉,我们更本没有掌握到华社的脉搏。话说回来,巫统狂妄傲慢已不言而喻,不过马华在大选的惨败,是否应全怪罪巫统?我让你们去决定。
-----------------------------
As the 2nd largest component party in BN, we cannot blame only UMNO for our losses in the election. We claim that we represent the Chinese community and that we 'resolve problems quietly'. The president says we are result orientated and do not engage in 'emotional outbursts' or shouting slogans, consequently when there are major issues confronting the nation, the silence is deafening. The leadership, as described by another senior politician, is called 'dumb politics'.

On the issue of Hindraf,it not only affects Indians but malaysians of all races as well. In a multiracial society, we must ensure that nobody is being marginalized. If BN practices real power sharing, then it should look into the reasons behind what has compelled a particular people to go out onto the streets and protest and not just say that its 'an Indian problem'. In the same way, the Lingam tape issue is a national problem but we MCA did not take any stand and by being silent hoped that it would go away. We judged wrongly

While everyday we harp on healthy political culture, when it came to Zakaria's 'Istana', our response, or lack therof, was very very subdued, if any. MCAs leadership was perceived by the Chinese community to be weak and scared of UMNO, so much so that they decided to 'close one eye'. How then to convince people to believe that we were fighting for the Chinese? On national issues, the response(or lack therof) of MCA showed that there were no concerted efforts to make our stand known or do something. No wonder the Chinese were and still are angry with MCA and BN.

We seem to believe that by announcing fund allocations for Chinese schools, relocation and new schools as well as scholarships; the Chinese community will regard us as championing Chinese rights. We must be dreaming and we are continuing to dream. We have failed to detect the real pulse of Chinese community and serve them effectively. UMNO leaders’ arrogance needs no further elaboration. So, can we blame UMNO solely for the disaster? I leave it to all of you to decide.

Dr Chua, from the current development, especially under the 2 mario brothers, i do not think MCA has what it takes to be a creditable opposition. Heck, MCA are not even a creditable part of the ruling party. The one biggest stumble block you will have with your party is that you only represent the chinese...the way i see it, no matter how good you are, you can never be complete. MCA will never be accepted as an equal to UMNO and judging from the number of increase in chinese in the country (smaller family number) against the malay population, only time will tell when you will hit all time low like your kanasai brother MIC. I see many creditable individuals in MCA but when they (including you) are running MCA, your balls suddenly shrunk to non-existance. Why cant you speak on behalf of the Indians as well when you are part of the ruling party? see my point now? You see the way OKC discrediting PR on the land issue in Perak, why he has not ask 'why' MCA did not persue the route PR is taking now? If MCA has tried but fail, where is the problem? 'why' it was not brought to the attention of the media before? A tad too late la whatever MCA is doing. U have your 50 yrs and it is sad that the only thing MCA did was to plead for chinese schools. MCA wants to point fingers at PR, pls check your own creditability first. this is politic la, just resign and join PR la!

frostier said...

Dr Chua, I sapot u 9 9.
being a man of ur age, you embrace tehcnology. Using laptop and blogging... which everyone should learn from u. No pun intended. >.<

As for the role, well there is always have the need for check and balance in which MCA should be start doing it.

Anyhow, if given the opportunity I would say that its time for MCA House CLeaning. ;)

Lysendar said...

Dear Dr. Chua,

I think it doesn't matter whether MCA play a role of opposition or what. As long as MCA can do something for the people with regards of races, any role will do!! As a Malaysian, my thinking is, what MCA can do for ALL Malaysian, no matter you are Chinese, Malay, Indian or other races. Based on the current situation in Malaysia, what people want is how the government can tackle the national issues, for example the corruption, oil price, and ect....... However, before that, you need to settle the problem in the party. If the party got some many problems, how can you solve the national issues? In short, solve the party issues first, before we talk about other issues.

We strive to stop Racial Politics and here you are, still talking about how to 'represent Chinese'. You peeps at MCA still do not comprehend racial politics is nearing its last breath. One of the many factors we, the rakyat would no longer tolerate is BN's tactic of using the racial card to extort and put fear amongst the rakyat everytime we question about corruption, wastage of tax funds and etc.

Dr. Chua, if you're still trying to 'save' a brand name like MCA, please stop wasting your time. As for MCA being Opposition, when was the last time you peeps at MCA have OPPOSE anything when UMNO went ahead their ways against everyone's stand.

Start being a real Malaysian and stop trying to 'represent' us, chinese.

马华设“三人小组”铲除异己?


大选过后的马华正值纷争时期,在矛头直指总会长黄家定的“倒黄运动”风起云涌之际,马华当权派秘密设立一个“三人小组”来铲除异己的传闻,格外引起瞩目。被传也是“三人小组”对付目标之一的马华副总会长林祥才表示,他将会彻查真相。前马华总秘书陈祖排也呼吁遭点名领导三人小组的人士,公开针对此事做出解释。

马华灵北区会顾问黄日龙(右图)日前在怡保举行的“救党大会”上公开指责说,马华总会长黄家定早在两三年前于布城的“16楼”成立一个由本身率领的3人小组,专门策划去除党内异己,包括因性爱光碟而黯然下台的前副总会长蔡细历,以及林祥才。

当时他说,“这个3人小组全国去跑动,联络各地的心腹来策划杀掉某某人”。

黄日龙声称,自己之所以获知这项机密,是因为3人小组曾在去年9月前与他接洽,试图拉拢他加盟参与。

不过,至今仍没有任何一位马华当权派领袖,出面承认或否认有关“三人小组”的存在。

“侦查别人私生活应作交待”

也是前任旅游部副部长的林祥才(右图)在八打灵再也的办公室接受《当今大马》专访时,证实曾听闻此事,并正在调查是否属实。

他表示,据了解,本身也是受到对付的目标。

林祥才认为,侦查别人的私生活是一件不好的事情,若证实“三人小组”存在,涉及者必须向马华党员作出交待。

“是的,我有受到通知关于他(黄家定)拥有这个秘密小组的事情,我对党内存在这种秘密小组一事感到非常忧虑。”

“当然,我会去调查此事是否属实。如果是真的话,有关涉及者必须向马华党员作出交待。这是一件不好的事情,尤其是你去侦查别人的私生活。”

“我在不久前才获知,我也是其中一个受对付的目标。我将会找出真相,过后可能会告诉你详情。”

祖排:秘密小组指责杀伤力大

另外,陈祖排(左图)也认为,黄日龙是一名资深领袖,应该不会信口开河,因为这种指责将会对马华造成极大的杀伤力。

“有关领袖应该站出来澄清,因为这已经是指名道姓,有关人士应该解释。”

陈祖排是于1995年开始受委总秘书,并曾官拜房屋与地方政府部长。他在2005年以原任总秘书的身份,在党选中挑战寻求蝉联的署理总会长陈广才失败,不过却赢得近40巴仙的选票。他在败选后就被排除在马华权力核心之外。

蔡细历阵营:行程皆被人掌控

至于另一位来自蔡细历阵营的匿名马华领袖也披露,他们的行程皆在“三人小组”的掌控之中。他举例说,他们的每日活动以及与他们会面的马华领袖身份,相信皆难逃有关方面的“线眼”。

Now, DAP is in power in the state of Penang, Perak and Selangor, how well they do will determine the fortune of MCA. The good thing now is that Gerakan is gone. So, UMNO cannot play this card against MCA. I think the president is weak and does not have a very good vision. I think most MCA leaders are weak and do not have very good vision as well. Dr. Chua is the execption in this case. The fact is that Malaysia's politics has changed from race-based to class-based ever since Pak Lah took office. Of course, MCA needs to "reinvent" itself, but how and by whom? On the left side, you have the green dragon (DAP) and on the right side, you have the white tiger (UMNO), MCA needs to transform itself into water (Rakyat). Water can float a boat, it can also capsize a boat. Of course, MCA needs the Chinese votes, but it also needs Malay votes and also Indian votes. It will be a fool to just represent the Chinese community and let UMNO deliver the Malay votes for you. Time has changed, go back ti the basics and represent all Rakyat regardless of race, religion and gender. It is best for MCA to split into three power base, one by the president, one by Dr. Chua and one by the Ong Tee Keat. One day, one person will emerge to unite this three forces. It is time for Malaysia to have a Chinese Malaysian as its Prime Minister, this day will come sooner rather than later.

Vincent Wong said...

Like froggie said ... "give it up!"

Its time to disband MCA, we must all face up to changes in time. When MCA was formed the Chinese population was almost the same size as the Malays.

Today we are 10% of their size; you cant win the number game as more and more chinese are leaving the country and those that stay are not having more children as compared to the Malays. Which ever way you cut it the majority always rule.

The only way you can fight for us is to change, have a paradigm shift, fight for Malaysian Malaysia and justice and fair play for all.

Join PKR or DAP, put MCA to rest - give up the ghost.

piece5 said...

on pure chinese issues, eg education, pig farm, UMNO shud be blamed, i guessed this is very difficult to publicly go against UMNO, or Malays somehow will be offeneded (MCA shud really consider connect with Malays in future). i believe social peaceful is important. btw, at times i also cannot understand chinese request...

in term of whole country issue, MCA must be blamed, because i had high hope for MCA. as media is getting more open, ppl have taken social peaceful for granted, rakyat now look for more, and this GE has shown BN is outdated and dumped (to some extend) by rakyat. i think the GE has changed thing too fast, even for rakyat to realize, and of course we would rather look forward for good course, as we cant reverse the GE.

i would forgive MCA due to opposition-wind, and hope MCA can realize the needs of rakyat and re-align the direction. only change leadership if they are unable to bring the party move forwards.

那當然,相信巫氏大老板也給了你們很多的承諾吧! 巫氏集團是個無誠信的大公司,因為巫氏永遠都不會是個好老板。這家族生意的構造本來已經不穩了,再加上多年的經營不當已到了無法挽回的地步。

不管員工多出色多本領,他們都不會被重用;還不時妒嫉員工的能力,加施壓這些好員工;
只給好員工豬骨頭硬啃,給死貓好員工硬吞;
而他們自己就大魚大肉,又吃起大肥豬肉來;
胡搞了生意而發起大財,財源不斷滾滾的來.

他們欺負和利用,玩弄加上賣弄再來愚弄所
有的好員工和好生意伙伴甚至好顧客和好同
鄉們啊!做錯事不肯承認,還找了爛藉口來
硬狡辯。迷迷糊糊,寧可毀了江山負了大伙兒,也不放棄自己的地位。

你說公司如果不肯洗心換面把招牌換一換,
調整一下經營手法再來產品改良,這生意
還能繼續做下去嗎? 無能的巫氏大老板
不如乘市道不太壞的時候,把公司交托給
有能力辦大事的公司吧!至少這樣還能對
得起柤宗和鄉親父老們。

也好讓出色的員工到有潛力的公司大展
拳腳,出人頭地而衣錦還鄉,員工也要
有面目對得起自己的鄉親父老的嘛!

這巫氏集團真是怪哉!哀哉!慘哉!

Welcome on board. Better be late than never. If you wanna know how much I "support you" you can refer to an "article" that I wrote back in January when BN (MCA included) was still thinking that they own the entire world under the sky. You may want to check it out here:

How to blame UMNO when all sit under the same umbrella?? Blaming UMNO is like saying ownself stupid isnt it?? Sigh...

Firstly, why in GOD's name did MCA allow itself to be in this position i.e. balless? What in the flying Fcuk happened? How could MCA allow themselves to be bulllied into oblivion?

Secondly, how to un-racist Malaysians when the government is race based? Look! it is you people who keep screaming about racial integration la, dont play up race issues la..maciam maciam pun ada la.. but it is again YOU people as in the goverment, who are the ones that is doing all the racist things.. have political parties based on race la, one fella wave keris and the other saddarp like blind like that... HOW TO INTEGRATE?? dumb you know!

Thirdly, MCA lose big time because everything that MCA advertised about during their election campaign, should have been done without being asked, without having to be acknowledged and most importantly, without having to beg and appeal. WE, CHINESE HELPED THIS COUNTRY TO BE WHERE IT IS, WE DONT NEED TO APPEAL OR BEG FOR ANYTHING! geddit!?

自308政治大海啸过去以后,很多巫统,国大,马华党的高层都开始改变方向改变作风,先从巫统说起:

再益在上个月甫上任时,建议政府向被革职的前联邦法院院长敦沙列阿巴斯以及5名被革职及停职的最高法院法官道歉.

再来就是国大党主席三美威鲁,立场急转弯,今日开腔吁请政府释放5名遭内安法令扣留的兴都权益行动委员会(Hindraf,简称兴权会)的领袖。他指出,其中两名被扣留者应该获得提早释放,即目前病重的耿卡哈兰(R Kenghadharan),以及在本届大选中选为民主行动党哥打阿南莎州议员的玛诺卡兰(M Manoharan)。

接着这位就是我们2008年最佳大汉贱(黄老鸭)
馬華總會長超级大汉贱(黄老鸭)支持成立獨立司法委員會,全面處理法官的委任及擢升,他同時也認同霹靂攝政王拉惹納茲林“司法復興”的號召。

  他指出,在第十二屆大選期間,出現一些纏繞著國陣的不利議題,其中一項就是20年前司法公正及獨立判決的問題。國陣必須正視目前司法界所面對的問題,並以實際行動推動司法復興,加強人民對司法制度的信任。

  “馬華支持成立所建議的獨立司法委員會,必須以透明化的制度委任法官,並在公平的情況下,擢升最有才能及廉正的法官。此外,政府也須在不分種族的情況下,委任更多擁有良好執業素質的律師擔任法官。”

  馬華堅持三權分立

  黃家定強調,馬華堅持聯邦憲法中的三權分立,即立法、司法與行政三權分立,以有效保障全民的利益。

  他進一步表示,民事法庭的法官必須拿出司法勇氣與智慧,依據憲法中所闡明世俗法的本質,作出最正確及公平的判決。法官對各案件必須一視同仁,不受本身的信仰及價值觀所影響,或屈服於極端言論的壓力。

  他最後強調,法官必須秉持司法公正的精神,堅持“法律面前,人人平等”的原則,以及在不分種族、性別及宗教的情況下,遵守及實踐憲法精神

这一刻是人民非常反感的时期做出非常假的行为........!!!

(我想在这问问大家,(itz right????)

其实我想在这跟大家先腾清下,本人是一名在新加坡工作的马来西亚人民,为什么我会飘扬过海???以前的人都所谓"人离乡贱",是我想要的吗?还是环境所避的?不过在这次308政治大海啸过去以后,我有了临时性的改变,现在的我觉得马来西亚找到它的弱点了,就如敦马哈迪所说的“锯掉烂脚来挽救生命”

马哈迪根据自己行医的经验指出,医生治病就是要给病人要吃药,即使药难吃,病人还是得吃药。他形容,巫统现在就像严重烂脚的病人一样,惟有将脚锯掉,病人才有活命的机会。

所以还是那一句"到黄是第一步"

拿督蔡细历All the best....

Doc, MCA would not have suffered the kind of losses it had if it had only been closer to the people and voice out when they ought to instead of keeping their trap shut and allow UMNO to hammer them to submission. On many counts MCA has failed and has failed miserably.

So, it is pointless to blame UMNO now. MCA should have seen it coming and should have pre-empt this catastrophe but they chose to defend their very own precious rice bowl and got hammered for it. They reap what they sow. That is how joe public looks at it and for the first 50 days I think you would also agree with many of us that the 5 Pakatan states have been good, but the same cant be said about the Federal Govt who are still embroiled in the blame game.

My take on MCA is, ditch the blame game. Take the blame. Let someone else take over the reins and bring in new ideas and new people into the fray in an effort to inject relevancy back to their struggle. Take it beyond race, I think MCA still has a lot to offer its people. Though my blog paints the darkest of picture for MCA, I sincerely believe there is still hope.

On another note, I want to register a word of thanks to Datuk Dr. Seri in your capacity back then as the health minister, that you have indeed improved the ministry and its delivery. My late mum was a beneficiary of one of your efforts. But I guess a few good men does not make a good party nor a nation. It takes many good men and women to make the nation great.

首先,我想恭喜您,您终于踏上了部落格的列车。这象征了,你是有心听到真实的声音。
独立至今,已经五十年的历史了。五十年来,华裔对国家的贡献是有目共睹的。也是事实,我们的努力被抹杀了,我们得不到本来属于自己的权益。
如果,马华2008年大选惨败,该怪罪巫统,我觉得这仿佛告诉了大家,马华并没有知错,也不想知道错在哪里。为什么马华输得那么难堪?民间盛传一句话,不晓得您有没有听过“马华不死;华社不生”?
所谓冰封三尺非一日之寒。马华大戏做透透,
为了各自利益出卖华社权利。这些也是不争的事实。大选前夕,就证实了马华越来越无耻。马华利用媒体制造对华裔进行恐吓;埋没良心说反话等等卑鄙手段。我们不是不知道;也不是不明白没有马华所带来的另一个局面,只是,我们更清楚知道,这一次,可能,也是最后一次机会让我们为我们自己挽回我们的权益与尊严。马华拥有过无数次的机会为我们平反?为什么你们没做?
原因只有一个“在马华的世界里,有几个可以当做是人?”色情光碟就是一个活生生的例子。为了权利跟钱利,马华出卖了华人,你敢否认吗?
马华不是无能,而是真的不能。两代的总会长,简直就是狗!
与其马华重新开始,不如选择重心开始。与其选择重心开始,不如选择重零开始!

马华已经丧失了华裔的信任。大家都明白,要一个人相信你,需要付出很大的努力/精神/时间。您觉得马华还能吗?

以前的马华拥有的都是属于年老一辈的支持,因为,以前的生活,确实需要有华裔的党派来支持华裔。五十年了,您还觉得这些老一辈的,还活着吗?以前年轻的,现在已是中年了。多少不公,马华给了这一代?我们并不是想从谁的手上抢到什么,我们只是祈望还我们一些本来属于我们的东西。也不希望别人可以轻易的抹杀跟夺取属于我们的东西。

坦白说,我还是这样觉得,怪不怪谁都已经是事实了。
该探讨的,马华是否时候找一个名叫“人”的来担当领袖?
是否,也该决定,马华是否还应该留在国政?
就好像做生意一样,今天这个伙伴是不行了;那就找另一个伙伴阿。再说,没有伙伴难道就不能做生意吗?

Refering to the NST article
"MCA slams Pas' Islamic state plan"

MCA Ong Ka Ting? Warning us about PAS hudud laws??
What a joke!

Ong Ka Ting, please tell me what you did when...

Najib unilaterally made the announcement that Malaysia is an Islamic state.

The banning of Bahasa language Bibles because of "Allah" word.

Systematic destruction of temples.

Kidnapping Hindu children from their mothers.

and more importantly...

Hishamuddin aka Kerismuddin warned MCA leaders to stop making statements that declare Malaysia is a secular state. (!)
MCA being warned for saying something that is already in the constitution!

...and so on and so on and so on...

need I say more?

With PAS, we might see some PAS implementing Islamic laws.
But we can be sure DAP will see to it in that those laws are in moderation.
DAP and PAS are equal partners.

With MCA, we can me SURE UMNO implementing Islamic laws without any reservations.
MCA can only whine and beg 'behind closed doors'.
(MCA does it behind closed doors, and I don't blame them,
if it was me, I won't want the public to see how I grovel and beg too)

MCA can't even protect us from UMNO.
MCA isn't even an equal partner.

Show us how you can protect us from UMNO first,
before you even talk about others.

"The facts speak for themselves. Our report card is there for the community to judge. Over the past four years, we have delivered" - Ka Ting
[source]

While MCA claims credits for its achievements, it has no one but itself to blame for its failures in the recent GE.

MCA’s first task is to carry out a thorough study to find out the root causes of MCA and BN’s failures.

One major root cause of MCA’s failures is that it has been quietly accepting the notion that many of MCA seats are safe seats given by UMNO and it owes UMNO a great deal for its magnanimity.

Over the years, this perception probably gives rise to the arrogance of some UMNO leaders, and causes the complacency of MCA leaders.

"Umno has ruled Malaysia for 50 years and they can rule for another 50 years more. And Umno does not need PPP, MCA, MIC, Gerakan, Sabah, Sarawak or anyone else to do this" - Ali
[source]

"BN is the best choice as the people have the easiest access to government machinery. This is important and I think BN will win big again this time" - Ka Ting
[source]

While an UMNO leader can openly proclaim the redundancy of BN’s component parties, without facing any rebuttal from the BN leadership, MCA tolerates such absurd behavior and carries on with its business as usual, believing that it will sail through safely with the blessing of these solid seats even if the weather at times turns bad.

However, the arrogance of such UMNO leaders cast serious doubt on the spirit, coherence and effectiveness of corporation in BN in the eyes of the public.

The MCA’s policy to work quietly and effectively for results gradually gives rise to a common perception that it is losing initiative to take on important political issues that arises from time to time.

MCA Youth’s acceptance of UMNO Youth’s explanation that publicly unsheathing and kissing a kris in an official function by a political leader as a Malay culture is seen as a meaningless negative damage control, which can not absolve itself of the responsibility for MCA’s poor performance, if the act causes the voters’ displeasure with MCA and BN.

Ong Kah Ting welcomes the PM’s recent announcement that there will be a ruling to require non Muslim converts to inform their families of their decision to prevent body tussles between religious bodies and families. Like it or not, it is an example of MCA and BN’s lacking in initiative in confronting an important issue and finding a plausible solution when such tussle happens repeatedly, before 3/8.

Therefore, how can MCA blame anybody for its own shortcomings?

MCA shall now work out a list of the root causes of its failures, identify and implement the corrective and remedial actions to prevent the recurrence of its mistakes.

MCA knows the way. To be fair to MCA, it has actually been doing a lot of work, although quietly or insufficiently. What it needs to do is to carry out a thorough review of its system and implement changes to ways or methods which are wrong, no longer effective or applicable.

The voters have given the mandate to PKR/DAP/PAS to form state governments. Their survival depends on how effectively they can work together to deliver their services to the people. .

Likewise, the voters have also sent a very clear signal and message to BN to review the mode and effectiveness of cooperation amongst the component parties.

A new door is open to MCA to start a new discussion and negotiation within BN on how the component parties can work out a more coherent, constructive and meaningful partnership than before, all for a better future for BN, the people and Malaysia.

Gone are the days when any one party can survive by itself or claim to be invincible.

The blessing of victory for PKR/DAP/PAS, if unwisely handled, can turn into a disastrous misfortune for the parties in the next GE.

Likewise, a misfortune faced by MCA today, if taken on seriously and positively, can turn out to be a blessing for a better future. All are not lost yet, if MCA considers this misfortune as an unexpected opportunity to start afresh.

MCA, like any other party, has no choice but to work harder to stay competitive and relevant. For MCA, there is no more such thing as safe seat. The political game is beginning to become unprecedentedly competitive.

Please do not fight only for the chinese. This is a racist policy. MCA must denounce any racist talk & action from any politicians.

MCA should not blame UMNO for the election losses.MCA should blame itself for not quiting BN when time was right.

Without UMNO,MCA cannot survive,most of the seats won previously were due to support from malay.MCA "taiko" never have th gut to face "DAP unknown" in chinese majority area.You people have no reason to blame UMNO !

What froggie said was same as what our good Dr Chua was saying. DAP look after the Chinese, and MCA look after the Chinese ....and other races. At least MCA do not have to PRETEND to be multi-racialist party like the DAP .

If not for Anwar Ibrahim getting confused Malay voters, DAP candidates would have to depend on MCA turncoats only.

50 years together with MCA have not made the Chinese any less well off.
