GE13 Malaysia – Don’t sulk just go independent

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.

Ong Tee Keat n Ong Chong Swen

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?

MCA party polls: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing?

And so, MCA has finally get the chance now to assert its political being. This Sunday will see the 61 year old pseudo political party tryout its wings in politics.

The forming, storming, norming of MCA:

After enduring its stormy spring and autumn period, MCA is now gingerly moving towards democracy, starting from and within its own entity.

Good luck to them MCA members contesting the posts of Presidents, Deputy Presidents, Vices Presidents and Central Committee. Some of the wiser old birds oops hands, know that MCA politics is going to be business unusual from next Monday onwards.
Pull up your socks, people. A political MCA is going to be different this time around AFTER it follows through le norming period.

And yeah, UMNO is watching MCA’s democratization experience. Will UMNO do a la MCA when its turn comes up? The signs are good. So far Najib Razak seems to have a roadmap to work towards so.

Speaking about democracy, Tun Dr. Mahathir has said it all here and hinted at how it will especially affect BN political parties. This is Malaysia’s small step towards democracy in politics. Whether you object to it or not, it is the reality now. Best is for political party members with higher aspirations to learn more about democracy and how it serves rakyat in real life in order to partake in politics.

1Malaysia will learn and adopt democracy.

To dear readers and friends who may have the tendency to  violent objection to what I’m saying here, please go back to your cadre school or books to quickly learn up the principles of democracy.

Really, I mean this all sincerity.

MCA’s AGM on 7 March and fresh elections 28 March

Boy did I have fun with MCA’s Central Committee supplying a ping pong like suspense this afternoon; following Twitter and Twitterers.

Maybe this year’s MCA Anniversary cum AGM should be tagged as “To hold, not to hold, kena hold, ordered to hold and have to hold”

See how some poor media friends have to play catch up with the changing by the hour decisions by the Malaysian Chinese Association central committee ‘leaders’…

PKFZ: The barometer of Malaysian government’s vote-ability

Me handphone beeped a text message this morning:

10/12: Former Port Klang Authority General Manager, Datin Paduka OC Phang and two others were arrested over the PKFZ issue. They will be charged in Klang today./The Star

Nice.

Now let us hear from politicians who dare to stand up for principles and accountability to the people of Malaysia.

Other politicians’ voices, please, besides Ong Tee Keat. We already know he has trail blazed the way forward in breaking the iceberg of this huge financial scandal Malaysia can do without.

Anyone else from MCA daring to go against corruption?

Let me hear from others who may have some hidden strength of character undetected by voters. Never, never be shy to promote your beliefs to your real constituents out there. MCA is just a tiny platform for your political relevancy. May I remind you, your BIG target to win over is Malaysians. Orang putih ke, orang hitam ke, orang coklat ke…  doesn’t matter. (I just love this colourful line of Susan Lankaster’s from me favorite Malaysian movie Mekanik. See the youtube clip open at 5:45 – 6:02)

We already have a brave young one from Pemuda UMNO who has asked for force of the law to come down hard on those gluttons nibbling off chunks of the PKFZ gravy train.

Bravo, Khairy Jamaluddin!

If UMNO and MCA keeps on upgrading their level of accountability and adherence to rules of governance, no sane voter will begrudge them the reward of a huge mandate in the next General Election.

Young Chinese Malaysians and MCA members and their destiny in history

Me received a very serious sounding email from a young MCA member friend. Share with you…

Looking into MCA history of 60 years, I’m afraid this is the only time an attempt at reform is seriously underway. And this is happening in our lifetime…

Seems like young Chinese Malaysians and MCA members have a chance to stamp our mark in history.

Sigh…like it or not, we’re part of it. We can’t run away, and I see a vision of my descendent pondering on my life philosophy years later when I’m old and grey.

I wonder how would they react to my stand on

• Backbone bending, kow towing to big bro UMNO?
• Warlordism in the little world of MCA?

Heavens forbid they carry the shame at my lack of courage to be a part of change.

My personal wish is to see MCA discard its central delegate warlords, ‘triads’ and their leftovers, through a reform.

I guess I don’t have to like Ong Tee Keat. I don’t have to like Chua Soi Lek. I don’t have to like the likes of Liow Tiong Lai, the tearful Wee Ka Siong or Chew Mei Fun either.

I don’t relish wearing face mask or wear black + light candles (my parents hate it and frown upon it as they deem it very sueey reserved for sanctity of human funeral). Won’t get anything done, wasting time.

Should I or shouldn’t I talk to all of these MCA leaders directly? What, How, Got to think how to go about it?

Me pity this young Hamlet, he should just go ahead and question his leaders directly. Go get them and dialogue, query and query those people to heart’s content… Be the change you want to be, man!

In fact, MCA members and the chinese community who want reform should seriously look into the MCA that members want and check out the real agenda of all their leaders(and their backroom handlers) involved.

Members should go and give the players a strong message what they want these appointed ’leaders’ to do for MCA. Speak up now or remain silent forever.

P/S: Blur? Read here and here for some titillating context of MCA’s interesting makeup. Remember to use your thinking equipment wisely.

Friendly advice to Najib: Know your Spring and Autumn 春秋時代 before meeting MCA

The ‘beloved‘ Barisan Nasional chairman needs a quick education on Chinese history and most importantly, the Chinese mindset before his meeting with MCA leaders.

(fyi: ‘beloved’ is a favourite loving endearment and liberally spewed by Liow Tiong Lai whenever he has the chance to demonstrate revere to the UMNO big brother)

And so, let us help the PM Najib Razak who said he will meet leaders of warring group in the MCA to solve current crisis, preferably before the proposed EGM on November 28 cried by the Liow Tiong Lai/ Wee Ka Siong/ Chew Mei Fun faction against MCA President Ong Tee Keat and Deputy President Dr. Chua Soi Lek who have the legitimate power of incumbency.

Below is a quickie education for ‘beloved’ Najib so that he can fulfil the KPI of an excellent mediator. For us normal everyday people who don’t know much about leadership and warring, a little bit of history may be an interesting addition to our kopitiam gossip:

.

The Spring and Autumn period is named after a book called the Spring and Autumn Annals, a chronicle of the state of Lu between 722 BC and 481 BC, which tradition associates with Confucius . It was a period of turbulence and changes in the economy, politics, and military affairs. In Chinese history, it was a period which roughly corresponds to the first half of the Eastern Zhou dynasty (from the second half of the 8th century BC to the first half of the 5th century BC).

During the Spring and Autumn period, China was ruled by a feudal system. The Zhou dynasty kings held nominal power, but only directly ruled over a small Royal Domain, revolving around their capital (currently Luoyang). The status of the Emperor was diminished to little more than that of a figurehead, while powerful nobles gradually extended their dominions over smaller neighboring states. According to recorded history, during the Spring and Autumn Period, there were over 480 wars, 52 vassal states were vanquished, and 36 kings were killed.

By the sixth century B.C., most small states had disappeared, and a few large and powerful principalities dominated China. Some southern states, such as Chu, and Wu, claimed independence from the Zhou. Wars were undertaken to oppose some of these states-Wu and Yue. In the state of Jin, six powerful families fought for supremacy, and a series of civil wars resulted in the splitting of Jin into three smaller states by the beginning of the fifth century B.C. At that time, the control Zhou kings exerted over feudal princes was greatly reduced, the feudal system crumbled, and the Warring States Period began.

During the Spring and Autumn Period, a complex system of interstate relations developed and many projects requiring the collaboration of two or more states were undertaken, such as drainage operations, canals, dikes, reservoirs, and roads. Massive walls were built, both as protection from each other and from aboriginal and nomadic tribes.

The Spring and Autumn Period was also considered as a period of philosophies: Daoism, Confucianism, and Legalism originated during that period. Many important cultural developments took place, and great Chinese thinkers including Confucius, founder of Confucianism; Laozi, founder of Daoism; and Mozi, founder of Mohism developed the philosophical systems which have shaped North Eastern Asia until the present day.

Ong Tee Keat offer his candidacy for President?

Go on.

Dare you to.

Call for MCA election for President and Deputy President posts.

Shut up the vulture factions once and for all.

Nothing to lose.

You didn’t sabotage MCA party constitution.

Members who are sidelined by central delegates appointees by vulture factions will respect you more. Maybe you can stop MCA members from leaving the party en masse at the same time.

Pakatan Rakyat is waiting, no, salivating for you to join them quick if the vulture factions conspire to boot you out.

Will MCA Central Committee dare to show some guts?

Some strange things happened on 10 October, 2009:

My friend’s mom cried.

My lawyer’s tongue went numb.

My Pakatan Rakyat supporter bro wished MCA members good luck and fun with the line dancing Ng Yen Yen.

My drinking friends cursed the MCA central delegates with the most colourful epithets. (trust me.)

#@$%…

With a little help from the brave doctor Chua Soi Lek who hung MCA’s party constitution out to dry, here’s the list from a blogger which me thinks will kill and will help Pakatan Rakyat bury MCA for good:

1. Too many factions (warlords?).

2. Too many mediocre personalities.

3. Too many rent-seeking personalities.

4. Too little effort in engaging the real community.

5. Too much effort in engaging associations filled with rent-seeking personalities.

6. Too much parochialism borne from an education system that is detached from the mainstream of the nation.

7. Too little effort in recruiting the best minds.

8. Too much effort in rewarding sycophants.

MCA’s history is based on wheeling-dealing. Genuine reform cannot take place unless the apex leaders disengage with the moneyed class. But how does one turn on one’s own genetic parentage?

This is the fundamental reality that the MCA needs to deal with. Can the existing leadership and membership do so?

And so, after the departure of a rare MCA species ‘dare to be a hero’ Ong Tee Keat, I hazard to predict that MCA’s future will be back to bland lapdog life.

Comatose existence with daily bland routine of licking the master’s hands.

tsk, tsk, tsk…

Unless, the MCA Central Committee accidently chanced upon an iota of courage within their bosoms to stand together and defy big brother UMNO and Tun Dr. Mahathir‘s wish to get rid of the Chinese community’s preferred President.

It’ll be fun to find out how UMNO deals with a biting rather than licking MCA.

But let’s get back to real life, now.

The real D Day will be on Thursday 15 October, 2009. Not the EGM as some central delegates were led to believe by their handlers.
