Gostan

Very looking forward to see how many more PR MPs will follow the YB Bayan Baru to leave the party.

and, much more interestingly, both KSs - Kit Siang and Karpal S commented that PR in Penang is far too strong to be shakened by this resignation.

Although I am not a big fan of both the KSs - (as their names suggested, they are pro in kill steal - pun intended) I have to say I have to agree.

Penang will be under PR in the next election. well, because we have a Chinese majority there.

Maybe the majority would not be as strong a number as it is now, but simple majority is readily within reach. i think.

Everyone knows this. DAP knows this.

Race is the name of the game. Thats the mother of all Malaysia's politics.

DAP needs to show the voters of Penang (read Chinese) that DAP knows how to say NO to Malays-fighter ie PKR.

That they, DAP is different from Gerakan. Gerakan cant touch the kampung melayu in Tanjung Feringgi just because UMNO say No. And they have to just chill out.

Can we blame DAP then? hmmm...I am not too sure...

At the same time, almost universally, inevitably, and expectedly, the issue of Malays been bullied in Penang would be fully blown by UMNO.

If we cant blame DAP, can we blame UMNO for playing racial politics?

That is the whole modus operandi of UMNO, to fight for the Malays. And UMNO is proud of that.

The difference between DAP and UMNO, i think, is that DAP play the racial game along the lines of equal rights for all Malaysians. Of course, you can add the words like help according to need and not color - to make it even more noble. In essence, DAP is still playing racial game. Chinese.

UMNO on the other hand is playing this same game, along the lines of special Malays rights. And UMNO as I said, is proud of that modus operandi as their driving force of existence - of course especially when talking to the Malays. And 1Malaysia in all other times, as appropriate of course.

Edith Sitwell once said - I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.

I am more pissed with UMNO of course. Sorry to say this. Bias. Because i want to be of equal, obviously.

The truth is, I felt we as a nation is accelerating full speed backwards, in turbo engine, whenever anyone is talking about this and that race is deprived, this and that race been bullied.

I grew up in jelutong market. Illegal hawkers, be it Chinese, Malays or Indians, they share two common things.

1. Poor

2. Illegal

If you dont act against, then you got to legalise them.

More often, legalise them = relocalization, and in Penang, we dont like to go to relocalized legal hawker site.

For some reasons, illegal hawker's hokkien mee taste much better.

You think those politicians give a shit about the hawkers?

The domestic trade enforcement agency has always been the modern day local gangsters since, as early as I can remember.

If you are an illegal hawker, in jelutong market specifically, when they come and bust, you either pay them 50 bux, or u pay the fine. and if u r selling underwear, u got to give a few free samples to them to take home as ufti.

Just that now taking your fifty bux and ur for sale underwears might be a bit, just a little bit risky thing to do.

So, if we dont put race into picture, the whole issue seemed to be a non-issue to me.

Why have to put race in everything?

Illegal ---> enforcement action.

and so anyways...

Gong xi fa cai.
