On Sunday 24 January 2010, The Star carried a page lead headlined “Feeder buses for housing areas soon”. The story also had the photo of a grinning Ong Tee Keat with students from various races. A day earlier, The Star had a page lead titled “Ong : Not a sen lost in the deal”. The story spoke of Tee Keat who had the interest of the people at heart when the Transport Ministry terminated the deal to buy 8 diesel multiple units (DMUs) for KTM Berhad. It also had a photo of a grinning Tee Keat. The same daily also had Tee Keat expressing his anger against those who had torched the two surau.
To highlight the MCA president and Transport Minister daily is a must for The Star, especially if he is to distract public attention from the fact that he and deputy Chua Soi Lek had at 10am on October 10 had been booted out by MCA members from holding the party’s top 2 posts.
The problem since then is that Tee Keat and Soi Lek do not want to step down. And to distract the public (and MCA members) from the rightful thing for them to do – which is to relinquish their posts and allow other leaders to lead the party – they have instead gone on a crusade to be in the news as much as possible and perceived to be tackling different issues and problems.
In this age of the new media, spin doctoring in the mainstream media is no longer effective especially when The Star seems to be the only newspaper highlighting the “positives” of Tee Keat and Soi Lek when the other mainstream media have totally opposed views.
The fact is that the people, especially MCA members, are truly fed up with their antics and dishonesty. If Tee Keat and Soi Lek continue to be oblivious to the decisions of the members, there will be no respect for MCA during the 13th general election.
In fact, there is already no respect from the people for both leaders.
Picture the opposition’s election campaign banners then. One says “If Tee Keat and Soi Lek are not needed by members themselves, how can they be needed by the people?” Even worse, another banner will be carrying blurred images of a bedroom scene.
Under these circumstances, how can the BN possibly win through MCA?
So to Tee Keat and Soi Lek, please withdraw and the nation will remember you both as responsible leaders whose interests are only to safeguard the interests of the Chinese and Malaysians.
If not, the circus will continue and the both of you will be eternally remembered as clowns.
