You would think the MCA youths (overaged, paunches and all) would strategise a better way to show off their updated political skills in this changed political landscape.
“MCA Youth secretary-general Datuk Chai Kim Sen said the opposition party was only good at “instigating problems” to curry favour with voters but had so far failed to propose solutions to the annual problem.
“If MCA Youth is a show, then the DAP is its greatest director and actor as well,” he said in a statement today.
Chai said MCA Youth was already busy reviewing scholarship appeals to help “victimised” top students…”
Duh… we all get nostalgic rewinds and replays year after year in the annual JPA scholarship appeals and review saga where students who scored too many A+ were:
1. taught how to fill out forms
2. submit to MCA
3. wait for MCA to review their appeal
Makes one wonder who elected MCA to collect personal data to review the students’ appeal cases.
Also one wonders why can’t the students themselves do the appeal rather than going through the MCA middleman. Like, duh, the students should know how to write and fill out forms and submit it by themselves, right?
Anyways, see extracts from other bystanders and try to figure out some thinking trend of these possible voters below:
You MCA dudes have been ‘handling’ this problem for the past decades without a solution, and you are asking DAP to come up with one? Crazy. (Chan Siang Yen)
What a stupid statement. In a Good government, reviews should NOT EVEN be needed! (EJ)
This PSD and scholarship hiccup is nothing new. It is an annual hiccup – a hiccup /laughing stock which MCA will never be able to overcome. What can the Chinese community hope from MCA? (LA Tan)
MCA, opposition’s role is not to shut up, but to watch and ensure you guys in the ruling party do your work. Busy reviewing? You should be making sure that those cases shouldn’t have happen in the first place. (Danny)
After so many years still fixing in progress? No wonder it is not relevant whether you guys are in cabinet or not? (amino suckers)
MCA has been using people’s emotion for publicity and for its own political mileage. (Gilbert Tan)
I for one am sick of this whole yearly wayang every year where our smartest kids think they deserve a scholarship (based totally on the unholistic evaluation of a single exam) while the government and opposition spar over whether they should get it or not and the rakyat like me fund this whole thing with our tax money without getting a tangible return! (Youdonotknow)
