Have they been effective?

CSL and MCA announced that they would withdraw from all government positions after the next GE if they fare worse than 308.

PM also said that CHinese Malaysia would risk to lose representation in the government if they don’t vote for BN.

I have just written a post on this (pls read the article:  A case of too little too late)about 10 ten days ago. I will reiterate some of the points made there:

So since 1999 till almost 2006, the Chinese sentiments were with the government of the day. They have a relatively high representation inside then.

What did the urban votes get in return? More racism even to the extent of keris raising, more extremist views ( and more double standard when it comes to uttering extremist views) , more marginalisation, more corruption, more so-called pirate-isation privatisation where billions were lost as leakages and wastage, more abuse of power by our various institution  to the extent that ISA was used to ‘protect’ a journalist. These were real happenings that occurred during the period when the government of the Day enjoyed relatively high  support of the urban people (eg. in KL Gerakan won 2 out of 3 urban seats in 1999 and 2004, seats where there were Chinese majority but with sizeable Malay and Indian voters, and nationally it won 10 of 12 Parliament seats contested).

AT that time, there were many elected Non-Malay Ministers inside the cabinet. The representations were there, but things worsened. The perception is that these people talked outside but dared not voice out inside.

Also this:

Ironically, only when the representation of the urban area was at its lowest, did the government of the day realise that there is a need to change. But given the warlord culture, it is a mammoth task.

So when the urban people all voted for the government, they were taken for granted. There were few scholarships, there were few opportunities to get government contracts etc etc. Members of some law enforcement agencies were more busy tending to their own ‘cari makan’ than to catch  criminals. Crime rates soared.

Coming back to CSL and MCA’s’ threat’ to refuse all its representation if they suffer defeat, I must ask Chua to go back to basic. He must understand the basic meaning of what representation means.

A representative from a group must represent the interest of that group. When he fails to represent that group”s interest effectively, then he should no longer claim that he represents that group of people. He cannot blame that group to want to seek some other representations.

My advice to Chua and those who think similarly as Chua is that they go back and look into the mirror to see what has really gone wrong.Have they really represent effectively the very people that they allegedly represent?

Otherwise, it is of no importance and consequence whether they are inside or out!

    Doc Hsu….This post is excellent!! .
    What a great Freedon Fighter ..you have become now.
    For you information..fron day one..I knew UMNO was very strong and I keep voting for a strong Opposition…for democracy to be alive…never once for Alliance…or BN.
    Years passed by…and from Mahathir onwards…not only democracy is only for show….but massive corruptions encouraged.
    Malaysians can only adjust their lives….with “agree to disagree” …to earn a living…like smilng outside…like all things are OK…but deep inside…hate the ultras and racist Govt…with no words to describe MCA or Gerakan at all…except puppets and balls carrying UMNO B for personal benefits….with no shame to declare…they represents Malaysian Chinese…even now…which is totally not true.
    Only Lim Kit Siang dares to exposes corruptions…and what Ling is going through…is due to this brave politician..who went to jail for nothing…except telling the truth.
    I remind all…BMF scandal esposed by LKS had a Malaysian Govt. auditor murdered in HongKong…and case is still unsolved…and the Finance Minister were Tunku Razaliegh and later.. Diam
    But I guess…Ling Liong Sik.. was more powerful than Mahathir and so was the ex IGP?
    That is waste of time to battle the old crook.
    MCA and Gerakan…Doc?
    Besides temples and Chinese schools..all these years…tell me when have they reallly fought for Malaysuan Chinese equal rights?
    Ling Liong Sik….started it all..and followed by what MCA today is.
    Koh Tsu Koon is good for nothing..and Gerakan remains…good for nothing…only good to carry Najib’s balls.
    Say what you like…Mahathir is best for UMNO B to create so many corrupted crooks…chosen few millionaires…so much so….Muslims are divided by him..for that Devil believe..to divide and rule is good and so he did succeed.

    Doc…You expect Chua Soi Lek to take your advise to look into the mirror?
    Why he is looking at ways and means how to get Malaysians Chinese votes.
    Once he look into the mirror…he may resign and regret.
    No way…no way.
    He is looking at Najib’s balls swinging where.. to chase and catch..to keep on carrying them…making Najib happy…and to sink or swim with the devils..guiding all Malaysian Chinese to that path….if BN win 13th GE….and he will be a filthy rich millionaire.
    It is up to all Malaysian Chinese to stay put and not a allow the most shameless and idiotic MCA President in history to shame us who values dignities and princilples in life….more than money.
    Stay true to your ROOTS…but be proud free Malaysians.

    MCA is the mirror image of UMNO.

    UMNO plays the race card to gain support from gullible Malays

    MCA plays the race card to gain support from gullible Chinese.

    Shame on you MCA ! Participating in a corrupt system that has resulted in a constant stream of racist insults aimed at Malaysians of Chinese descent, a semi-apartheid social system, resulting in mass emigration of some of our best and brightest people.

    With the Internet, it is getting harder and harder to fool ordinary people by playing the race card.

    Chua Soi Lek and his gang are only thinking for themselves when they started this game. They are not thinking about the Chinese community. It is time we ignore them and Gerakan as well. MCA and Gerakan are no longer relevant. It is time to move beyond them. Dont given them a second thought.

    Indeed, with MCA and Gerakan in govt to “represent” us Chinese, we continued to get 50+ years of racial discrimination and every important jobs in govt is sapu by UMNO.

    It does not take a genius to see that an ex-Malaysian Indian can become the Public Prosecutor in Canada, an ex-Malaysia Chinese can become the FINANCE MINISTER in Australia !!!

    But MCA keeps dreaming ON and ON of the Deputy Prime Minister post, they even lost the Finance Minister post decades ago.

    Useless, MCA, get lost !! We don’t need you to prop up the racist govt run by your taiko UMNO.

    With MCA and Gerakan misrepresentation of chinese community so far,we were deceived or misled to toe the parties line which in fact was covertly and cohortly ill-manipulated to pander to their master(UMNO)’divide and rule policy.The worst thing is we have to slog but they got crumps and lollipops from their master while their master n commandoes stashed away heaps of easy and ill-gotten money out of the country.Dr Hsu,you’re very right..their failure to represent chinese community means nothing to us now and we had enough of their repeated failure to look into the mirror and cleanse their blardy face off pimples,ticks and dirty forked-tongues which plagued this lovely nation.

    It seems that when Mahathir..Queen Elizabeth and Vladimir Putin go to hell…the Devil have a phone for three to phone back their countries.
    The devil charged Putin 1 million for a 5 mins call.
    He paid….them Queen phoned for 30 minutes to Britain and Devil charged her 6 million. She also paid.
    Then comes Mahathir talking for 4 hours and the Devil charged him…$5.
    Putin was very angry and ask the Devil why Mahathir got to call Malaysia and charged so cheaply.
    The Devil smiles and said …”Since Najib took over…the country has gone to hell and so…it is a local call.”

    Umno cannot win the general election without the help of MCA, Gerakan and MIC as Umno has never been strong enough to govern alone. But although these eunuchs are helping to propagate Umno’s power they have been castrated and are totally out of the decision making loop. We sometimes find leaders of these component parties appealing to Umno as if they are part of the opposition, not part of the govt.

    So what is keeping these parties in BN? For a start even positions without power is an attractive lure. Secondly, their withdrawal from BN will cause political upheaval and social instability. As for their helpless status they have been kept in line with racial threats.

    But we don’t really want these castrated component parties to withdraw and BN to break up. Even if Pakatan wins power we still need BN as a component of the 2 party system to keep the ruling party in check.

    We never hope Pakatan to win without a strong Oppositin or like we say…a 2 party system.
    It will be most ideal if voters are split in the middle like the democrats and the Republicans in US.
    But fist thing first…vote UMNO B out.
    To me…BN is just a name…after 12th GE.
    Vote UMNO B out and let Pakatan govern.
    Unless that is done…it is all talk talk talk that UMNO B seems to govern forever and the so call 2 party system…falls for Pakatan as the Opposition forever?

    The reputation and moral of the people in the national government of the day are at the bottom of the septic pool and had sunk deeper that the French made submarine. Yet they continue to show total arrogance and in complete denial that the Rakyat are disgusted with all the obvious leaks and wastages couple with intentional discrimination and marginalisation. They act like greedy bigots continue to find threatening ways and conniving means to grab on to power. They are such thick skinned leeches that feel no shame and see themselves as do no wrong. Ask them to look in the mirror and they will see Prince Charming or even Cinderella FLOM. Continue with them means continue allowing them to lead the Rakyat to a bankrupt Timbuktu Disneyland. MCA, Gerakan, MIC and the etc. etc parties are now going along for the joyride in the BNwagon, all trying to grab a share of scraps of ill-gotten loot that are spilling over this tilted scale barisan wagon.
