The regret by MPs on Brexit’s referendum outcome notwithstanding, British lawmakers must nonetheless accept what the people decided as the result is clear and legitimate, said UK prime minister Theresa May today, according to a Guardian report.
Analogous on our home front, the results of GE12 and GE13 are also clear and legitimate where the Chinese people overwhelmingly decided that DAP is the voice of the Chinese electorate.
We must accept that the DAP – which leads the opposition bloc – speaks for the Chinese community.
Doubtless MCA is telling Umno that the BN component party can recover the Chinese votes in GE14 now that China has signed RM144 billion worth of deals with Malaysia.
But how are the opposition legislators responding to Najib Razak’s game-changing pivot to China?
Pakatan alarmed at huge debt to China
In an immediate reaction, opposition leaders are taking the reverse tack with regard to the mutibillion dollar deals inked by the PM with China.
De facto opposition leader (1) Tun Mahathir raised concerns about over-reliance on borrowing money from China, fearing this could jeopardize our nation’s sovereignty.
De facto opposition leader (2) Anwar Ibrahim cautioned Najib not to be too dependent on Chinese loans lest Malaysia is held hostage to China’s foreign policy and geo-political interests.
De facto opposition leader (3) Muhyiddin Yassin warned that the deals with China may compromise Malaysia’s territorial integrity.
De facto opposition leader (4) Lim Kit Siang – for once! – is at at loss for words.
De jure opposition leader Wan Azizah is keeping mum, leaving it to her underling Fahmi Fadzil, the PKR communications director, to comment on the issue.
But don’t forget that 90 percent of the Chinese support the opposition. Do the Chinese voters agree with what the opposition leaders have said above?
MCA overjoyed, DAP underwhelmed
Meanwhile, MCA is jubilant over the success of the premier’s Beijing trip, crowing that “PM Najib is a master diplomat in securing this magnitude volume of investments for Malaysia’s benefit”.
MCA further believes that the cash-rich bilateral trade ties “will also help towards reconciling the various races in Malaysia”.
The positive statement by MCA represents the views of 10 percent Chinese voters.
Are the rest of the Chinese pleased with this latest success pulled off by Najib? We should think so, yes.
It is the DAP Yang Berhormats who represent the views of 90 percent Chinese voters so let’s hear it explicitly from the horse’s mouth.
DAP is the voice of the Chinese community.
DAP needs to loudly refute all the negative pronouncements by the Malay ultras Mahathir, Anwar and Muhyiddin if indeed the Chinese polity is happy about Beijing’s current warmth being lavished on Malaysia.
This moment is a historical watershed. DAP must speak now or forever hold their peace.
