13th General Elections – What next for Barisan Nasional

My view is that the Chinese voters have given their best shot to vote for the DAP and the Pakatan in this round of elections versus the Malay voters who did not turn out in full force. – OutSyed The Box

The results of the recent concluded general election revealed one pertinent point.

That with the majority of chinese in peninsular Malaysia voted Pakatan Rakyat in bulk, they could only secure 89 seats in Parliament. That is just ONE seat more than Umno’s ability to garner the votes from Malaysian voters. We haven’t even take into account the rest of component parties in Barisan Nasional.

UMNO – 88
MCA – 7
MIC – 4
Gerakan – 1
PBB – 14
PRS – 6
SPDP – 4
SUPP -1
PBS – 4
PBRS – 1
UPKO – 3

Total – 133

It is now imperative that Barisan Nasional look into their strategy of national reconciliation. Obviously, all the reconciliation efforts for the past 4 years under the Prime Minister in order to appease and mollycoddle the chinese community particularly in the peninsular Malaysia did not work.

All the money being pumped into their chinese schools, all the recognition given to their university and their exam certificates as well as uplifting their education system (to the detriment of national unity) and all the opportunities given to their businesses, has failed.

The PM must recognise that the advice given by his advisors on the chinese issue were miscalculated and erroneous.

With the MCA and Gerakan totally decimated by the will of their own community, it is therefore be concluded that the majority of chinese here in West Malaysia do not want to be represented by the federal government.

You are responsible for the consequences of your voting action.

What needs to be done now is for the PM to appoint more wakil rakyats from Sabah and Sarawak into the cabinet. There are many more communities over there that still appreciate what Barisan Nasional has given them all these years – development, peace, stability and economic prosperity.

Since we know the people in Sabah and Sarawak (be it chinese, iban, malays, indians, kadazans etc) care about Barisan Nasional, Barisan Nasional in return must focus more on East Malaysia.

Perhaps, more representation in cabinet is befitting. As the chinese here in West Malaysia rejects the concept of 1Malaysia, 1Malaysia should make a stronger presence in East Malaysia.

Why would we want to focus on people who do not want to be part of the ruling government?

It is also timely for Barisan Nasional to give direct membership to people who believe in the Barisan Nasional philosophy but quite apprehensive in joining Umno, MCA, MIC, PBB or other component parties. This will definitely appeal to the urban populace who are politically incline to contribute.

There is also a need for automatic registration to those who reached the age of 21. This is vital for the fight in the next general elections.

Barisan Nasional again has been caught sleeping. It has been sleeping since 2004. If they continue to sleepwalk their entire administration for the next 5 years, be certain that Barisan Nasional will lose Johor and East Malaysia as well.

Although Umno gained more seats this time around, do remember that they lost many, many more seats they had contested. The sense of accomplishment that Umno had performed better than 2008 is exactly the sense of false strength that will be their downfall in the coming years.

Although Umno and their East Malaysian component parties can rejoice about this false victory, they must be cognisant of the fact that Pakatan Rakyat is gaining ground. The opposition would just need to break the malay votes further and launch a campaign that will ensnare them to vote for Pakatan in the next general election since they have already secured the chinese votes.

This is the reality. If the effort to continue appeasing the chinese here in West Malaysia is looked upon as a sign of weakness by Umno, be sure that come GE14, there will be more spoilt votes.

Yes, we are talking about voting along racial lines as propagated by the DAP and its chinese community. Hence, the chinese tsunami of 2013.

And poor PAS with its 21 seats. That’s 2 seats less than what they had won in 2008. It seems that their sacrifice in being the accomplice of DAP has made their dream to institute hudud law in this country getting gloomier as the years gone by. Muslim malays just can’t seem to catch a break.

The next immediate step for the PM is to form a cabinet sans all the old faces we inherited from Pak Lah’s administration. No more Nazri Aziz and his ilk.

People say that the PM needs a Rottweiler in Parliament. But how many times this puppy went against the BN consensus and issued statements which are friendly towards Pakatan?

If the PM wants a Rottweiler, there are many more capable MPs which can do the task even better. It’s just they had not been given the chance. Belum cuba belum tahu.

As for cabinet posts, emphasis should be given to the Home Ministry as this ministry will have its hands full for the next 5 years. Hishamuddin Hussein failed in his task as Home Ministry and should be given the the job of Foreign Ministry so that he can learn to have more cojones while working abroad.

Hanifah Aman, should head the Home Ministry as he is seen as having more strength and determination in performing his task. He was fearless in engaging overseas protesters and perhaps, in the spirit of focussing more on leaders from East Malaysia, this move is perfect for both the PM and the West Malaysians.

The Umno Youth head with an increasing majority in his constituency should be made a deputy minister in a junior ministry, at most. There were talks that he should be made a full minister but this may not be a wise move as one should learn the ropes first. One must remember that Umno Youth failed to make inroads among the young voters despite organising many events trying to attract them towards Umno and Barisan Nasional. The social media unit of Umno Youth was abysmal and could not fight against Pakatan’s more organised social media users. As the result, Umno/BN youth lost the young urban votes.

Another vital ministry is the Finance Ministry where the PM should let go of the position Finance Minister I and give it to a professional. Zeti Akhtar for instance. Or perhaps Husni Hanadzlah should just hold the ministry in its sole capacity. I believe he is a good man and has performed his duty well.

These are just a few pertinent points in the cabinet issue. There is no point in discussing more of it until the PM has decided. Only then we can see if the PM is serious is improving and transforming his team.

Thank you.

  1. I’m not optimistic on whether DS Najib’s cabinet will really reflect the needs of the current political scene. I suspect he’ll still maintain the multi-racial representation despite the hoo haa on MCA opting out. Tun Dr Mahathir favours the Chinese in – power sharing, he said. Much has been said on MCA and Gerakan not performing, and now I’ll just shut up.

    Menteri Dalam Negeri is damn important. The chap can go wanking everybody, causing tension one way or another, or run to China bowing and apologizing for some wrong we never did, like Azmi Khalid. I’m willing to live with Hishamuddin being retained, a cousin DS Najib can trust his life with.

    The Rottweiler will still be there in cabinet coz he’s a good bouncer, too. Even Tun Dr Mahathir pun kena on one occasion some time back. Loyalty, he said. DS Najib needs that.

    Remember, what is absolutely important in cabinets the world over is political expediency and long-term survival of the PM. Not so much whether geniuses should be given posts. But I’ll be damn disappointed if Rais Yatim is still included. Get a strong character who’ll make full use of the government resources at its disposal, who can influence the independent media and rein in the wild and unruly cyber troopers and others in the social media, please.

    • Is this what’s next for BN?

      DS Najib “should recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) of Chinese independent schools immediately “as a symbolic proof of BN’s appreciation,” said UMNO Supreme Council member Saifuddin Abdullah? “Immediately”? Appreciate their voting DAP? Is this fella real? Is he representative of the UMNO Supreme Council members? Is he nuts?

      True, UMNO must stay moderate like he said, but the fler does not even agree with Najib’s use of “Chinese tsunami” or “urban tsunami” to describe the swing in Chinese votes towards the Opposition. And he counts himself and Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin (see http://bigdogdotcom.wordpress.com/ for the brickbats thrown at the fler) as among the few “open minded” UMNO members, while the majority are “yes men” and the others are “radical”. No wonder this deputy higher education minister lost in Temerloh at PRU13. But why the hell was he voted into the UMNO Supreme Council? Because he smiled a lot?

      True, “Umno’s future direction and approaches will depend on (the line-up of the) new supreme council after the party elections later this year.” Let’s hope they voted this Saifuddin fellow out. He does not even seem to know what national unity through single-stream schooling is. And what Article 152 of the Constitution on BM is all about.

    His main task as Menteri Amaran Sukan will however be to issue stern amaran to certain associations headed by the Sultans or Sultan’s son. Especially that Association of Kena Sepak Malaysia or FKM where the President has been at helm for nearly 30 years and our once lowest ranking of 75 has improved termendously to 163 but fell to 161 yesteday.

    • It’s not clear whether lack of prosecution is the fault of the Minister of Home Affairs which has power over the Police. We often read news of the Police submitting investigation papers to the Attorney General’s Chambers and that court charges are prepared by that office, although minor cases may even be prosecuted by MACC Legal Officers etc. We need some legal mind to weigh in here.

      And it’s not clear who the AG is responsible to. There was, before, a Law Minister. When there wasn’t, the AG may be responsible to the Cabinet. Indeed, the AG official website says the AG is the Legal Adviser to the Government. In the absence of a Law Minister, the AG may be responsible to the PM and I doubt if he is responsible to the Home Minister. If that is true, non prosecution of criminal acts cannot be blamed on the Home Minister.

      Indeed, one of the most publicly scrutinized aspects of the Attorney General’s role is the responsibility for criminal prosecutions. But a legally qualified opinion is welcomed here because one law website says in England – from where our laws emanate – the Attorney General does not direct or cause charges to be laid. “While the Attorney General and the Attorney General’s agents may provide legal advice to the police, the ultimate decision whether or not to lay charges is for the police.” Once the charge is laid the decision as to whether the prosecution should proceed, and in what manner, is for the Attorney General and the Solicitor General. In this case, lack of prosecution and more of amaran appears as a weakness of the Home Minister.

      Would a legal mind come to the rescue here, please.

    But the govt must make sure that the current staunch supporter is happy, thats all. Plus take good care of the new batch of voters, be friendly to them, make sure they register in a strategic area, and make sure they go vote during the next GE.

    Worse you still have all these speculators fronted by dummy companies buying tons of houses. Not so sure the rulings enacted are effective enough as enforcement are lacking and there is no effective mechanism to actually monitor.

    About Pemuda UMNO, Khairy getting a seat as Timbalan Menteri, I still have doubt about this guys sincerity after what he did during Pak Lah era. He and Pak Lah really messed up the country. Khairy was everywhere in the corporate scene collaborating with the Singaporeans wheeling and dealing their way buying and merging Malaysian companies while making tons of money from nothing.

    I still have deep suspicion that he is a Singaporean spy or sympathizer and eventhough he won by a huge margin, still he can achieve that with his tons of money. He has left a bad taste of what he did during Pak Lah era, and I believe he should just remain as what he is now

    Did anybody see when the election results was announced, His face was gleaming joyfully while Najib with his solemn face knowing the winning comes with a huge cost of race polarization..If I were a Pemuda UMNO leader, I would feel with anger knowing the fact the Chinese has betrayed the nation for what UMNO has done.

      I saw him on TV standing behind DS Najib who was addressing the press at PWTC after the BN win that night, behaving immaturely, moving about, gesticulating, making eye and hand signals and even pulling one of his UMNO Youth men to be near him, as if trying to show DS Najib of their contribution in securing the BN win, oblivious to the fact that all cameras were fixed on Najib talking in front of him. Perhaps he was trying to remind Najib that very night that they should be considered for a cabinet post.

      My concern is that he was found by UMNO Disciplinary Committee to have engaged in money politics and must have done the same to win the Pemuda UMNO Chief post soon after that finding. He was the leader of the notorious “Level Four Boys” during his paw-in-law Tun Dol’s time, wheeling and dealing with Singapore companies and making tons of money.

Appoint deputy ministers from the opposition side as well – so that we can have an effective check-and-balance against cronyism, nepotism and corruptions. That’s how BN can rebrand itself as a multi-racial cabinet and weaken the oppositions at the same time.

          ===============================
          We heard that 90% of the income tax revenue comes from Chinese. Is this true? – Edward Han, Subang Jaya
          ===============================

          That is a misconception. It so happens that the majority of Chinese, especially in cities and towns, are in business and since business cases are often selected for audit through our risk management system, it is perceived that 90% of the income taxes are from the self-employed Chinese.

          However, one should note that there are an equally great number of Malay traders in small towns and villages, albeit the volume of business could be much smaller, who are registered with our local branches.

          There are also a great number of Malays and Chinese, too, who are in employment and these taxpayers are perceived to be paying every cent of their hard-earned income.

          Although the IRB does not maintain records of taxpayers based on race, statistics of tax collection from individuals (including Indians and other races) is about 18% of the total tax collected of which 35% is from the self-employed group. I hope this fact dispels the perception that there is a racial bias in the tax system.
          =========================

      Yes, Najib simply has to play the Malay politics now. If he starts pussy footing or tries to be “liberal” on NEP and Malay issues, they’ll knock him down in PRU14. Even now, we don’t know yet how UMNO Supreme Council feel. No doubt UMNO got 88 seats compared to Tun Dol’s 79. But overall, he got less seats than Tun Dol did.

      Tun Dr Mahathir has said if he didn’t do well in PRU13, UMNO might replace him. Some are already talking about Muhyiddin might have done a better job, no nonsense on the Chinese and not alienating many Malay votes for that.

      He cannot totally disregard the Chinese. But he doesn’t have to pander to their wishes. Just do the minimum. Build up the Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak economically. And the Indians, too. After all the Chinese are the richest community in the country already.

So, BN has become a champion of one while Pakatan works together as one. It does not matter whether each fight a different cause but in the eyes of the world (and the more liberal Gen-Y voters), Pakatan offers a better formula. Malays and Chinese are the majority of the population in this country, they work together, they socialise together. If BN can make it work, so can Pakatan.

        This is a political game afterall. Watching how the game is played now, perception does carry more “truth” than reality. To have all bumiputers in the cabinet may look perfect to uphold the bumiputera cause, but it will only work agains BN, in my opinion.

        Of course, the corruption issue would remain the dark cloud. No doubt, politicians are aready considered corrupted individuals. Pakatan supporters also grumble about corruption in Pakatan but this is how they put it “do not make it so blatantly obvious la…” Huh??

    i. Dr Chua had already warned the Chinese that if they did not support the ruling party in the GE13, MCA will have to backdown.Meaning the Chinese will not have a say in the
    government.

    ii. This decision I think is to teach the Chinese that MCA meant business.

    iii. Likewise for Gerakan.

    iv. If however, BN Chairman disagrees to this it would look bad on Dr Chua. More destructive is the Chinese would say..” Look at BN ..it did not matter who we voted..we still have a place in the government.”

    2. Secondly, PM Najib should stall if not abandon his Aku Janji in the states that still remained in the opposition hands eventhough he clearly said on the night of the GE13 results that he would still carry out his Aku Janji.

    3. Thirdly we would like PM Najib to LISTEN to our voice just like we LISTENED to his advice and voted BN.

    We think it is just FAIR. Don’t you?

    • Note that the decision was not just Chua Soi Lek’s decision. Remember, he told the reporter asking him when going to the BN victory parade at PWTC that 5th May night that he could not just alter the decision, because it was a resolution made by the party, MCA.

      I have had considerable thoughts on the pros and cons on the issue of Chinese representation in the government and have not been convinced by the arguments for it. For now, I agree, and shall repeat, that

      i. Dr Chua had already warned the Chinese

      ii. it was to teach the Chinese that MCA meant business

      iv. if DS Najib doesn’t follow MCA’s resolution that was reiterated by Chua, It’d be more destructive in that the Chinese would say..” Look at BN ..it did not matter who we voted..we still have a place in the government.” He can stall appointing Chinese to the cabinet – perhaps until 1-2 years and see the effects as reflected in a by- election or reliable party-conducted surveys and analyses.

      Yes, I also support you in saying “PM Najib should stall if not abandon his Aku Janji in the states that still remained in the opposition hands”. And we have to state this repeatedly, loudly and clearly, as he had clearly said on the night of the GE13 results that he would still carry out his Aku Janji. And he has in the past fulfilled even “conditional promises” that didn’t bring him votes, like he did at by elections prior to PRU13.

      Good that you spelled it out that PM Najib should “LISTEN to our voice just like we LISTENED to his advice and voted BN.”

  15. As a Chinese who found himself in the minority this GE, I feel really sad about the political culture in this country. If you think it is bad that Malays are not united, imagine how you would feel when 90% of your race supports a certain political party in fanatical proportions. You think that is a good thing? Things go bad in the absence of equilibrium. Nature always find a balance, one way or another, whether you like it or not. And it almost always result in destruction, pain and suffering in order to reach that balance.

    Many people forget the role and responsibility of a government. This is often overlooked when we are so obsessed with race & religion in politics. I’m also very disappointed with the Chinese voters this time in general, but especially in Gelang Patah. For me, all these talk of race representation, blame, insults, etc. is really a symptom of a more fundamental problem, which is actually a failure of a government (which incidentally is a Malay government).

    Do you really think that the Chinese woke up one day and decided to vote Pakatan en masse? Or that the majority Buddhist Chinese finally “saw the light” and decided to throw their support behind the DAP’s Evangelist Christian leaders? Let’s not pretend that it was not BN (UMNO in cohorts with MCA) who pushed the Chinese away, with Perkasa handing out white ang pows to the elderly Chinese folks, as well as other events similar in nature. Ibrahim Ali might as well save his money and could’ve just told the old folks to go and die to their faces. How low could a person go? How low has politics descended to?

    If a government cannot maintain race relations, control corruption, uphold justice, provide security, is it the failure of the citizens or the people in government? It seems to me, this country needs fear and hate to survive. When the citizens cannot even trust each other, what future is there? This GE was really on eye-opener for me. For the first time, I saw Malaysia and her people as they really are. And I’m glad it happened because now I see the truth. Now I see the true character of Malaysians in general. BN needs fear to stay in power. PR needs hate to grab power. FEAR & HATE drives this country.

    Let’s be honest for once shall we? If the Bumiputeras or government thinks that getting rid of the Chinese will make this country a better place, then just be honest about it. I would have greater respect for them for their honesty if they would just put it out into the open. Honestly, I agree fully that the Chinese should not have any place in the new cabinet. At least then, the government would have the freedom to do what they’ve always wanted to do but couldn’t. I for one would be grateful so that at least I know for sure. And everyone can better plan their own future and move on with their lives. Isn’t it better that way rather than being hypocritical and pretentious and having to live in fear and suspicion? On one hand we pretend to be a muhibbah society, a role model as a multi-ethnic country. On the other hand, we resent and are envious of each other. What’s the point? How long can we go on like this? I do not wish my family to go through what the Chinese went through in Indonesia during the 90s.

    The way I see it, the Chinese population here is decreasing anyway. It won’t be long until their numbers won’t matter anymore. In the meantime, I just hope that I can have some peace and stability during my short life here on earth so that I can at least equip my kids with the necessary skills to venture to greener pastures and find their own way in life. And then, the Malays and the rest of the 90% Chinese here can do whatever they want.

      • I’m not blaming the Malays per se. I’m only expressing my views based on my own observation wrt the failure of the government of the day and the politicians in general. I apologise if I sounded like bashing the Malays or being apologetic towards the Chinese, which is not the intention at all, or else I wouldn’t even have bothered posting here.

        The community in the most serious trouble is not the Malays or Indians, but the Chinese. Don’t you think it is worrying that these Chinese, young ones, especially, are even protesting on behalf of Pakatan, in other countries? Attending rallies all over the country. Posting crude remarks online in forums and blogs? Are so fanatical with Pakatan & DAP and their leaders. And most worryingly, full of hatred for the government, total lack of respect for the country’s leaders, Prime Minister, BN, and anti-establishment. I refuse to believe that the government is not aware of this trend. What happened to the Chinese community. As a Chinese, I can tell you that it is absolutely out of character from the typical Chinese mentality. Either this is the result of Pakatan’s propaganda machine Or maybe it was part of BN’s plan from the beginning, or perhaps I’ve missed something… Who knows.

        Although I’ve already anticipated the result before the GE but what I didn’t expect was it would turn out to this extent. Politicians are politicians. Their only concern is winning regardless of party. I’m deeply disappointed with the government and the political culture here. This time round, I’m absolutely disgusted with the opposition, Pakatan, especially DAP, PKR, and MCA. Until today, these politicians are still at it, playing up the sentiments of the people. It absolutely saddens me when the people are at each others throats because of them. The saving grace for this whole mess is Najib and Ghani whom I feel were victims in their respective party. It also raises the question of whether there is any humanity left in this country. When an MB who is widely touted as a moderate and caring towards the people of all races can be rejected by the Chinese and a minority of Malays like this, all in the name of hate. Hate towards the government. It is worrying. Which shows that politicians like them would not make it in this country. The people prefer politicians who are hardline and chauvinist. The people themselves have become extremists. And I dread to think what will happen if PR managed to take over Putrajaya this time round. I doubt any of them, in BN & PR, even thought about the country, they are only concerned about themselves. Fighting for positions, MB, PM, DPM, ministerial posts… And here we have the people, blaming each other for the politician’s failures and defending those in their political camp… all in the name of agama, bangsa & negara. Ironically, both BN & PR claim to be the ones upholding it. Funny.

        Like it or not, this is the beginning. This is year one for the new Malaysia. Minorities like myself have found ourselves outside the loop. And I don’t like what I’m seeing…

    • I am sorry to here this from the Chinese blogger, which one of them could be my good friendly neighbour under the guise of pseudonyms.(so happen the friendliness just expired on the 5th of May)

      When anyone talk about equilibrium, we are talking about huge disparities between average wealth of most Chinese against most Malays. Malays only learn about how to accumulate wealth for the last 30 years ago. Chinese knew how to do it since the turn of century. Malays live in kampongs and being told your place is in paddy field by the British masters, whereas Chinese being placed in towns build by the British servants. They’ve learn the ropes of doing business by being in towns

      Imagine if the Chinese sent by British to work in paddy field, and instead, the Malays stayed in the towns….Maybe the fate of two races would turn out differently as what it is now…..

      Malaysian founding fathers knew about it and felt we have to do something to address the plight of the impoverish Malays. That’s when the Social Contract (article 153 constitutions) was written and all the ethnic groups agreed as a prelude to Independent. Was it a good move and whose to blame?? Ask the Chinese forefathers who signed it….Tan Siew Sin, Tan Cheng Lock etc??? Oh…of course they would sign it because they are MCA Chinese, not the true blood DAP Chinese…..Without signing it, Chinese and Indians would be consigned as immigrants or at most as permanent residents? They won’t have any right to vote and other rights, i.e. having own language, schools, religious temple etc

      Flash forward to 2013, the Chinese smells blood in their hands. They decided to vote as a block and trying to overthrow the existing ruling government. They wanted to take over the country and rescind the Social Contract being signed by the forefathers under the guise of government corruption, injustice, cronyism, Malay-bias-nationalist, plus election fraud etc. ……Another key element, now they have Malay charismatic orator or Chameleon-Anwar, who can help their cause under the Just for All Malaysia logo. Alas, Anwar is the long sought after Chinese savior with one exception, one does not one to be left alone with him in a room, regardless male or female.

      Those Malays sitting on the sofa watching the whole events developed was shocked and disgusted about the Chinese so brazenly against the Najib government. How dare they blatantly oppose the Social Contract, which form the union of Malaysia? The perception towards Chinese by Malays nowadays…. they are back-stabbers, scumbags, communist and DAPs.

      The line has been drawn….Now Malays better buck up and for UMNO, enough is enough of kowtowing….The Malays have hardened their stance ….UMNO have to accelerate their effort to boost up the Malays economy……Care less about giving contracts for benefit of the Chinese..Contracts should be exclusively given to Foreign/Malay JV partners….All this call by Chinese firms to discard negotiated tender by the government can be simply be ignored under the pretext we are still studying carefully the pros and cons and will take sometime to decide….

      Chinese are already well fed…….. …..Chinese opinion can be discarded…..If they wanted to bring to the streets, the Malays are ready……Only time will tell when all these become explosive….No more 1Malaysia and yes, now JEBAT in Malays has been stirred and no more sweet talk…

      • One thing I notice each time the issue of corruption comes up is that BN becomes defensive by arguing that PR is corrupted too. Just because it is also practiced by the other parties, does not make it right and justify the wrong, in my view.

        The fact is politicians tend to be corrupted. There are clean and honest politicians, which I do not deny, but they are far and few in between.

        It is the degree of corruption, I believe, is the issue. It is too blatant in BN-led government, according to my DAP-supporter friends, who do not argue of the existence of corruption in DAP.

        Najib has no choice but to tell his people to clean their acts and to stop pointing the wrong of others. Najib must show that he is serious, I mean damn f—-ing serious, in tackling the corruption issues, be it big or small. I am sure it is not easy but what other choice does BN-led government have?

      • Hi Banzai. Your name sounds familiar and I agree with almost all of what you said above.

        I also want to respond to Gig’s comment above, perhaps along similar lines:

        I also feel sad about the political developments in this country especially the voting trend at PRU13. But the foundation for unity has been lacking right from the start. Vernacular education since Merdeka could not give way to single stream schooling that would have children mix together, learn and develop Malaysian values, share common hopes and aspirations based on the Constitution of the country. Article 152 of the Constitution on Bahasa Malaysia remains sidelined and many people claiming to be Malaysians still cannot speak BM properly, let alone respect the Social Contract among the races that came about with Merdeka and the adoption of a new Constitution.

        Yes, I agree with you Banzai, that there in fact never was equilibrium in this country. The British colonialist policies have set us apart educationally, economically, etc, etc. NEP came about after the race riots of 1969 but had to be muted and diluted for the sake of Chinese votes under Najib’s PMship. The Malays and the Bumiputeras of Sabah and Sarawak grinned and snorted but gave Najib a chance. And now this Gig fellow tries to blame the government – and a Malay government, said he.This cannot do. After Najib bent backwards to please the Chinese, to the chagrin of the Malays. Who voted him, anyway – 89 seats to Abdullah Badawi’s 79 seats in 2008.

        And this bloke and his ilk will find all sorts of excuses to blame UMNO, MCA, Perkasa and what have you. Except DAP. PKR and PAS and their devilish cyber troopers, cheered on by their leaders, all over the Internet, in the Chinese language, broken English, Malay, Tamil, etc. Completely refusing to note that Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa was only REACTING to what DAP leaders and others have ACTED before. Including words and deeds that led to the UMNO Divisional Head in Penang using the term pendatang, remember? And when the term became current, such blokes will of course fault UMNO, not DAP.

        And he’ll continue to bang the government – UMNO he’d accuse – “cannot maintain race relations, control corruption, uphold justice, provide security”, not acknowledging the rampant corruption of PR, started by DAP Tailorgate in Perak even just 49 days of getting power in 2008, no mention at all of the hundreds, nay thousands, who break the sedition laws in cyber space every day, and breached the the Peaceful Assembly Act as well at Kelana Jaya demo 6 May and in Penang the previous night. And he twists it by saying “this country needs fear and hate to survive.” For he cares not about the fear of rioting and the hate of the residents of the area and the road users who got into hours of traffic jam.

        True, now the citizens cannot even trust each other, and he asked what future is there? Not a single positive word of advice or appeal to those who caused mayhem on the roads, who could have brought up their dissatisfaction through the proper channels – the courts.

        Instead of putting out arguments on the pros and cons of not having Chinese representation in the new government, this chap instigates by asking the government to “just be honest about it.” Yet, DS Najib has not spoken a word about Chinese representation in his cabinet. He is being nasty, isn’t he, saying he ” agrees fully that the Chinese should not have any place in the new cabinet” but added, “At least then, the government would have the freedom to do what they’ve always wanted to do but couldn’t.” What is this fellow trying to say? Or to do? What sense of responsibility has he?

        He instigated some more. “What’s the point?”, said he. “How long can we go on like this? I do not wish my family to go through what the Chinese went through in Indonesia during the 90s,” he added. Then he came out with the bombshell that tells his lack of loyalty to this country – the mau-angkat-kaki and cabut kind. Even seditious in saying, “.. the Chinese population here is decreasing anyway. It won’t be long until their numbers won’t matter anymore. In the meantime, I just hope … I can at least equip my kids with the necessary skills to venture to greener pastures ..”

        There you go – they are mostly like that, aren’t they? And he finished it off saying “then, the Malays and the rest of the 90% Chinese here can do whatever they want.”

        You tell me – when blokes talk like this, you think there will be no reaction that says, “Good riddance” to them?

    I hope BN should have learned this bitter lesson. No matter how much you try to please the Chinese, they will still stab you in the back even after 1000 years. PM should now do the following to win back the Malays:
    1. Bring back ISA
    2. Expand extensively UiTM throughout the country.
    3. Equity should be according to population. Malays 60%, Chinese 25%, Indians 15%.
    4. Do not close Chinese schools. Let them learn their language so that forever they cannot join the armed forces, police and civil servants because they cannot speak Bahasa Melayu!.
    5. All communications, billboards and signages should be in BM only. We should introduce Jawi extensively.
    6. Ensure Sekolah Kebangsaan become the school that parents will be proud of. Introduce English at Sekolah Rendah level so that all our children are fluent in English.
    7. Ensure all corrupt politicians are sacked immediately..
    8. Reward Sabah and Sarawak.
    9. Please help the poor Malays. After all these years, the Malays are still marginalised.

    My view is that if the next generation of Malays is still poorer than the minority Chinese there will be envy and destabilisation will occur and history will repeat itself!
