Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak’s attempt to curry favour with the Malaysian Chinese population seems to have backfired very badly as witnessed by the results of the 13th Malaysian GE.
|Lim Guan Eng (L) and his father Lim Kit Siang|
Their forefathers landed in then British occupied Malaya with ambitions of making their fortune in this tin rich Malay peninsular way back in the times when the land was still pretty much undeveloped save for a few small towns and bustling ports.
|Penang’s Chinatown in Campbell Street|
We have all learned of ‘China Town’s cropping up in every imagineable place here on Earth. Well, here in what used to be Malaya, there is no town or village where there are no such conclaves missing of such Chinese.
Lim Guan Eng is the first Opposition DAP Chief Minister ruling over the most industrialized island state in Malaysia today.
Despite various complaints of injustice and biased treatment of the few remaining Malay population in Penang, the DAP continue to enjoy the growing tremendous support of the now majority Penang Chinese population there! The protests and cries of the Penang Malays are lost in the thunderous roars of the Penang Chinese!
Penang’s UMNO is no longer relevant and they are led by those who have failed to garner much support from the remaining number of Penang Malays along the fringes of the island. Most of the Penang Malays have migrated to Seberang Perai, Southern Kedah and Upper Perak areas on the Malay Peninsular leaving the island which has seen an influx of Chinese taking up almost all the areas vacated by the Malays.
Ah Jib Gor has been stabbed in his back by the scheming Chinese who gleefully lined up to accept the BR1M cash handouts of RM500 all over the country twice whilst pretending to want to support Najib’s hollow slogans of ‘Satu Malaysia!’
But the irony of all these treachery seems to be lost on Najib Tun Razak as he keeps trying to woo the Chinese or namely the Malaysian Opposition by still kowtowing to their incessant demands for the abolishment of this and that security apparatus or subjugating the Elections Commission to their every whim and fancy!
The Malaysian Opposition have succeeded in getting the Elections Commission to be under the Parliament’s watch now! Read about it here.
Najib Tun Razak looks set to be forever recorded in Malaysian History as the Father of KowTow.
|5th Malaysian PM Abdullah Badawi snoozing away|
Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was said to be the weakest Malaysian PM. Looks like he does not have to worry about that anymore. The current PM seems to be keen on going all out to beat that record.
The following picture says it all!
‘What other remaining Malay rights can I surrender next?’
