After BN’s big loss of face outcome from Malaysia’s 13th General Election, Samy Vellu declared sagely recently that it is time for BN to regain people’s trust.
Hmmm… a bit late there (somebody beat the MIC legend to it in 2010).
Makes one wonder why BN still keep them UMNO cybertroopers who helped Najib Razak to lose face big time (especially in Selangor) by repelling voters below 50s.
Listen up UMNO, MCA, MIC – you better find yourselves some quality social media engagers if you want to stay on to give a good fight in GE14. Otherwise it will be a boring GE for your fading members and our pelancong politik.
Some may ask what about Khairy Jamaludin‘s cyber team? Pooh, pooh, I say. In Twitter, FB, blogs, frankly, the MCA writer of the original rebuilding trust article seems to possess more politically solid content than his army’s.
Malaysians were entertained with some comic relief from those who were not picked by their BN or Pakatan Rakyat political parties as calon for GE13.
Some Malaysians were turned off by these dropped aspirants who brought their little coterie of friends to protest against their parties’ choice.
“Serdang MCA division is up in arms over what it says is the plan of the BN headquarters to field a candidate for the Serdang parliamentary seat. Chinese dailies have speculated that Liew Yuen Keong’s camp is in conflict with party members loyal to former Serdang MCA division chief Yap Pian Hon.”
Hmmmm…. what happened to the declarations such as “I’m loyal to my XYZ party”, “I am doing servicing because I sincerely care”. You lot just disclosed to the whole world that all this time you all were really not doing whatever community work for the sake of the community’s betterment.
Eh, kurang asam… all these time taking free rides using party machinery to push for their personal advantage.
If these people think they are worthy of being elected, these people should just resign from their respective political party, fork out own money to fund their own candidacy as independents.
Don’t la play the sulking baddie and sabotage your own parties’ operations centres… Boleh?
“The division had threatened to boycott the election campaign if it was resolved that Wangsa Maju Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Mohd Shafei Abdullah were to replace division chief Datuk Yew Teong Look.”
Latest I heard some Subang Jaya friends said that Ong Chong Swen is also going to show her displeasure over being dropped as calon for N31 Subang Jaya. In what way, I wonder. I hope this ex-teacher will not show a bad example to mothers. Shame if this Wanita MCA central committee member behave so.
Selfish and hungry for personal fame, I wonder if their own party members will care to vote for them in coming party elections after the GE.
MCA’s Ong Tee Keat and Wanita MCA’s Ong Chong Swen
While we are on this topic, will this MCA man Ong Tee Keat be standing as an independent in Pandan constituency?
Why get all fussy or worked up over Malaysia’s 13th General Election when you can get all teary eyed over such good for the soul stories like this?
“This is a welcome break from all the garbage in the news!! These are some fine young people!”
I read an interesting article on The New York Times Op-Ed “The Unspeakable Truth About Rape In India” and found an interesting comment from a reader about India.
Read and tell me about your reaction to below commentator.
Comment from: Cleanup from U.S.
“Crime like rapes etc are the result of lawlessness and political corruption in India. It is clear now, protests marches do not work as they are easily crushed the same way India’s Anti corruption movement was crushed.
The main curse of India is this- the country has been ruled by old, uneducated, inefficient, corrupt politicians who consider themselves lords and masters since the British left.
The opposition is the same.
The Prime Minister is educated but is unable to think outside the box.
Every project, every deal allows the politicians to collect huge cuts and the citizens end up with lousy deals, crumbling roads and infrastructure. Scam after scams are revealed only to be hushed up. Giving and taking kickbacks have been perfected to an art form and no one gets caught.
The politicians , public servants and their relatives are some of the richest in the world. It’s time the world comes to know the truth and hopefully these politicians would feel some shame for what is happening to this land of a billion plus people.
India needs massive doses of new blood,-educated modern thinking to be injected into the government. Indians must encourage educated result oriented, people from the private sector to join politics. If not this cancer of corruption, lawlessness will destroy this country. India is now one of the the largest kleptocracies in the world.”
Malaysians have not learned the word ‘leaching’.
Go to your favourite lunch stall, see office workers tapau their deliciously hot food/noodles. Nobody seem concerned with plastic leaching from their favourite tapau lunch packet when they get back to their office to eat them food.
With many happily consuming plastic chemical, I am wondering what our Health Minister has been doing all these years. What’s their role? Prevention or cure? Zzzzz…
For those interested, here’re some facts I’ve found for your education:
* While it’s likely impossible to completely avoid all plastic products, try to use as little plastic as possible, especially if you’re pregnant, and never use it around food.
* Don’t serve or store hot foods, acidic foods, or foods with a high fat or oil content in plastic containers of any kind as these types of edibles are more likely to encourage leaching.
* Use glass, metal, or lead-free ceramics instead. A simple storage system can be created with any bowl and a similarly-sized plate used as a lid.
* Avoid the temptation to save and reuse commercial food packaging and drink bottles, which are not designed for repeated uses and become more prone to leaching with repeated cleanings.
