UMNO Protects the Chinese

Today at the UMNO general assembly, Negeri Sembilan delegate Jalaludin Alias was very point-blank when he mocked BN component parties Gerakan and MCA by declaring that only UMNO can protect the Chinese community. Jalaludin said this when debating the party president Najib Razak's policy speech. What I am hearing is that UMNO has to do the job because the two parties have abdicated from their responsibilities.

Therefore, if Malaysians accept what he says, then we can dump, drop and discard Gerakan and MCA. I agree with Jalaludin – so we cannot depend on the parties to look after the Chinese. (See, who says I am always giving UMNO the black eye?) Given this reality, the non-Malays should not even consider to vote for the two useless parties! Gerakan and MCA will be goners come GE13.

On Wednesday evening, I was in SS19 in Subang Jaya for the Subang Toastmasters meeting – I received the invitation when I met Melvin Cheah at the Klang Bilingual Toastmasters meeting last Monday. I was both the General Evaluator as well as an Evaluator for an Advanced speech from the Interpretive Reading manual. A smallish crowd but the members were eager and enthusiastic. I would give this meeting a score of a 6 out of a 10.

Celtic reminded everyone why they are SPL champions with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Hearts on Wednesday night. The former forced their way in front in the 10th minute when Kris Commons' cross from the left found Lassad Nouioui who confidently volleyed it low past Hearts goalie Jamie MacDonald at his near post. Then in the twenty-second minute, right-back Mikael Lustig, with assist from Nouioui, stabbed the ball past MacDonald for Celtic’s second goal. The third goal came when Charlie Mulgrew's cut-back was deflected into his own net by Hearts midfielder Ryan Stevenson (30). And finally Gary Hooper volleyed in a Mulgrew cross (83) to reward Celtic with the fourth goal.
