Mahathir Insults Chinese Again












It would be fair to say that most Chinese are now supporting Pakatan Rakyat. In spite of this, former premier Mahathir Mohamed dismissed this view, saying that only a few Chinese extremists would support a change of government. He is insulting us again and worse, he is labeling us as extremists! To be sure, we will show him in GE13 that we are not a few! Definitely not!

In a China Press interview published on February 15, 2013, Mahathir claimed that many Chinese appreciated what the Barisan Nasional government had contributed to Malaysia. I am telling Mahathir that he got it all wrong! Thomas Jefferson had said that “Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors”. And if Mahathir still doesn’t understand that, then Mark Twain who stressed that “the government is merely a servant – merely a temporary servant” will have made it crystal clear even to a person who is suffering from brain cell degeneration. Therefore, the Chinese owe BN nothing!

The truth is, any Malaysian – not just the Chinese – who supports a change of government is a smart and well-informed citizen. Change, we must!

Celtic’s fairy tale run in the Champions League had come to an end, most likely. I was very disappointed with their below par exploits against Juventus – and it took me a while before i could get over it. Anyway, the domestic match between Celtic and Dundee United on Saturday helped assuaged my pain because the former produced a scintillating performance and an astonishing 6-2 result. Neil Lennon's side fought back from an early shock courtesy of a Stuart Armstrong strike (10), which was quickly cancelled out by Efe Ambrose's header two minutes later. Doubles from Kris Commons (22, 55) and Anthony Stokes (70, 82) as well as a Joe Ledley strike (37) left Dundee United licking their wounds. Johnny Russell netted a consolation just on the final whistle but Celtic’s victory was never in doubt – and they unflinchingly moved 18 points clear at the top of the SPL table.
