Does It Matter That Najib's New Cabinet Has Chinese Representation Or Not?

Does it matter that Najib's new cabinet have Chinese ministers or not?

He is thinking of appointing Chinese ministers in his new cabinet even though MCA has said that they won't ask for any this time after their poor showing at the polls

As far as the Chinese are concerned, they are not the least bothered whether there are Chinese ministers or not in the new cabinet.

Even with the MCA ministers in the cabinet, we never felt that they represented us.

MCA hardly spoke out when the Chinese were threatened. In fact, Malay right wing NGO Perkasa had a field day when MCA were in the cabinet.

The Chinese not only felt that MCA ministers where redundant, but also that they were there only to represent their own selfish interests.

In all the years that there were MCA ministers, their presence in the cabinet didn't make any difference  to the Chinese.

If truth were told, we felt that it would have been better that there were no MCA ministers pretending to represent the Chinese.

That was why we decided to boot out the pretenders.

The Chinese have been surviving and doing well, no thank you, all these years whether MCA were there in the cabinet or not.

We have been doing well sans any help from the government because we try to help ourselves by working hard and staying resilient in the face of all the handicaps we face.

MCA for all we care, can close shop.

And they should , because there is no real reason or rationale for them to exist anymore.

Was there ever any, anyway?

So, does it matter at all whether Najib appoints Chinese ministers?

No, it does not.

Whoever Chinese from whichever party Najib appoints to the cabinet, doesn't make an aorta of difference to us.

Najib is himself constrained as far as whom he can appoint to the cabinet.

The BN coalition that he leads does not have the moral authority to govern, having won on a minority vote on the back of allegations of cheating at the polls.

That may explain why they are trying to divert attention from their unenviable position, by playing the dangerous racial card on an almost daily basis, the racial sound bites getting more and more strident and crazier and crazier by the minute.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
