by poison pen
MCA vice president Gan Ping Sieu complains that his “honest views” have so much discomforted others that he is now “having to deal with poison pens”.
It must be the Scissorati at work. Wow, terribly impressed (at the efficacy of the virtual assassins).
Imagine. If an MCA vice president can lament that he is a victim of poison pen fitnah, what more slander then are these venomous J-pens capable of smearing against the other component parties in the BN.
Gan had earlier expressed his interest to go for a higher post in the upcoming party election, i.e. deputy president or MCA president.
The different factions vying for control of the cash-rich party – MCA has billions of ringgit in assets – are busy backstabbing each other.
Do recall that the secret taping of Dr Chua Soi Lek in the Batu Pahat hotel room was suspected to have been an inside job.
In his kini.tv interview a couple of days ago with Malaysiakini, Gan admits that his party needs to learn how to express itself more eloquently if it wants to remain relevant.
Strange that he should say so considering how the MCA ostensibly controls the country’s biggest media conglomerate that has an audience of 5.63 million adults.
Yet despite the MCA’s ownership of the Star Media Group, the party is far from eloquent. In fact MCA is shambolic in putting across its message and has long ago slipped into political irrelevance.
If the party cannot even rein in a media that it effectively owns, and curb the editorial staff on the company payroll from their lethal scissorsing, how effective do you reckon the MCA to be? What is the purpose of MCA on the planet?
The main priority is that MCA does not continue to become the cause for the BN to eventually bleed to death from sustaining all those scissors wounds in the back. With friends like MCA, the BN doesn’t need enemies.
