I hope it is not too late to wish my dear readers a very merry Christmas. Have a pleasant holiday and a blissful new year.
‘Tis a season to be jolly indeed. What more when I read what Liow Tiong Lai had said last week:
“I don’t think it would affect the outcome much. The bond between Umno and MCA is very strong although there were hiccups caused by sensitive remarks (by some leaders).
“The relationship between Umno and the MCA goes back to long before Merdeka, and we in Barisan have agreed to be sensitive to the feelings of other races and not to raise sensitive issues anymore.”
He said those words after being questioned by The Star on the BN’s chances of winning the Kuala Terengganu by-election.
A refreshing view amongst the plethora of other insensitive agents of disunity. Liow Tiong Lai will be given an ‘ole-ole’ from Jebat Must Die for this wise remark :)
The Star on the other hand is still playing with fire by asking Datuk Liow whether the recent racist remarks by Umno leaders will cause all the 11% chinese votes to swing to the opposition; – hence the reply from him as stated above. I tried to remember what was the racist remarks made by Umno leaders recently which The Star had taken the trouble to highlight it again.
Ah yes, the suggestion to integrate and unify our children under one education system. Maybe The Star should worry more if the 87% malays there realise that some of the opposition leaders had been stroking racial tension via their own bigotry all this while and the voters there decided collectively that a vote to opposition would mean a vote for racial polarisation and national disunity!
For this, The Star receives a red card from Jebat Must Die just like how John Terry received his last Monday.
By the way, I am currently at the airport waiting for the flight home. Quite surprising to see many more comments were made by contributors on my recent article. Not to mention scores of spams from the usual suspects. Like I said, history is a fascinating subject and must never be taken for granted. Will see through the comments after I reach my humble abode.
Till then, take care and be well.
