Firstly, I note that when one PKR MP leaves the party, The Star will write “PKR in turmoil”. When two thirds resign from the MCA central committee? “Fresh polls for MCA” :P
It seems that lotsa people are gunning for Ong Tee Keat. Now, I really barely follow MCA politics at all, and people have told me before that it’s because he’s actually trying to bring some semblence of integrity (pursuing PKFZ, etc.. maybe he’s rightfully seeing that MCA will die unless it changes somewhat).
I usually dismiss such notions, but of late I’ve really come to wonder if there might be just a drop of truth in it – especially seeing the way Najib appears to have abandoned him.
Anyway, I really don’t feel qualified to comment much, save perhaps to say: if anyone is truly interested in upholding integrity, then perhaps one should choose political parties based on principles instead of expediency.
All those who have tried to bring goodness to BN (think of so many Umno presidents, Gerakan, etc2), have only been met with bitter disappointment. Maybe Ong Tee Keat should reconsider his options.
