Any last words?
MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the party would take advantage of the Kuala Terengganu by-election campaign until polling on Jan 17 to identify the needs of Chinese voters in the parliamentary constituency.
Ha???!!! Take advantage of the by-election to identify needs of Chinese voters??? All the years that BN (where MCA is a partner) have ruled the state you never identified the needs of the Chinese in KT? Or attended to them?
Now if you think that nail didn't do the job these statements certainly shot in the final nails into MCA's political coffin in KT......
Based on MCA's experience in several by-elections before, each state has its priorities which may reflect the needs of voters, which can also be influenced by the kind of local and national issues raised during the campaign period. Therefore, the MCA needs to identify the concerns and priorities of the Chinese voters to enable the party to provide the feedback on the issues raised...But what is important is for the Barisan Nasional (BN) by-election machinery to work harder to win the hearts of the constituents.
Translate that from Political Speak into English and it could mean...
We'll tell the Chinese flers that we will give them what they want so they will vote for us. After that...who cares. Promise only what. You mean must keep one meh?
