UPDATE: Dr M p-o-w-e-r!!
The government Dapsters deserve: The Islamist and the Evangelist in cabinet – Education Minister Maszlee Malik and Deputy Women’s Minister Hannah Yeoh
Before Harapan can even reach their first anniversary in power, DAP has already been bitchslapped black and blue by Mahathir.
A dozen DAP Aduns yesterday put their name to the party youth wing’s formal complaint that STPM students will suffer the negative consequences of the government creating 13,500 new places in Matriculation for Bumiputera.
This sudden, sharp increase in Matric seats without a corresponding increase in public university enrolment will result in decreased entry for STPM holders (read: Chinese).
The Education Ministry’s new plan to balloon the next intake is in direct response to non Malays’ clamouring demands to open up Matric.
You see, the Dapsters had a touchingly naive belief that they will no longer be suppressed by the quota system now that they’re living in New Malaysia. As with all naifs, the Nons (read: DAP supporters) have just been sucker punched again. In the face.
Explaining the new Matric maths
The last Matric intake was 25,000. It had a quota of 10:90 between non-Malay and Bumiputera students, equalling to 2,500 seats allocated for the Nons versus 22,500 seats for Bumiputera.
Of the 2,500 seats for Nons, 1,500 was reserved for Indians and 1,000 for Chinese. The Indian-to-Chinese ratio for their joint 10 percent non-Bumi Matric share is 3:2.
Since the Chinese gave 95 percent of their votes to the Harapan government, they were hoping to be rewarded – at the very least – with a more equitable percentage of our socialized education benefits. After all, the Chinese’s 1,000 seats out of 25,000 made up only four percent of the Matric.
But what happened in the backroom of Harapan when the DAP running dogs suqiu their Pribumi overlords?
BELOW: Yes Sir, Yes Sir, Three Bags Full
Lousiest Return On Investment (ROI) for DAP voters
Woof, woof. Here, some crumbs for the good doggy.
Okay lah, says the Pribumi Education Minister (channeling his Sith Lord). We can give you Cina DAP beggars a few more Matric seats.
So the Education Ministry proposes to expand the programme from 25,000 to 40,000. But the 10:90 Matric quota remains.
Therefore the Nons will now be getting 4,000 Matric places, translating into 2,400 Indian seats and 1,600 Chinese seats.
True – under BN previously, the Chinese were offered 1,000 seats in Matric compared to their upcoming 1,600 under Harapan. That’s an improvement of 600 but still, how good a deal is it?
Well played, Mahathir, well played
Under BN, Bumiputera students had 22,500 Matric seats. After the DAP’s intervention, they will be getting 36,000. That’s an increment of 13,500! 👏🏽 👏🏽 👏🏽
And the Chinese’s new allotment of 1,600 seats out of this expanded 40,000 is still only four percent.
Conclusion: The Chinese give 95 percent of their votes to Harapan and their Harapan gomen gives them back four percent of the overall seats in Matric. LMAO.
And guess what? Compared with the academic year prior, there will be an additional 13,500 Bumiputera students competing with STPM students for uni places, thus making it increasingly difficult for Chinese to continue their tertiary education locally in Malaysia Baru.
Straight A’s children, low IQ parents
Not only that; Chinese taxpayers will furthermore have to foot the bill for running this bloated pre-U programme for the next intake of 36,000 Bumiputera students instead of the 22,500 before. New Malay teachers will have to be hired, and new junior colleges built by Malay contractors to cater for the inflated Matric numbers.
Never mind, Finance Minister Lim Guan Beng will just have conjure up more ways to collect taxes besides his newly introduced Soda Tax, Digital Tax, Departure Levy, Service Tax on Imported Services, increased Real Property Gains Tax, increased Stamp Duty … and I suggest for the Dapster morons to pay jizya too.
Middle finger to DAP from the grandmaster
DAP’s latest political feint at Matric has yielded a huge, resounding payoff for Pribumi, Maszlee and Mahathir.
In fact, we’ve just witnessed Mahathir deftly out-manoeuve DAP by replicating his earlier and tested move where he agreed to appoint Guan Beng finance minister but at the same time created a brand new Economic Affairs portfolio for Azmin Ali in the cabinet.
What a hoot, and to think that DAP had told its followers the party would use Mahathir as a pawn in its “Melayu screw Melayu” strategy.
My I-Told-You-So quotient has just quadrupled because with this killer move, the Harapan chairman has effectively signalled to DAP, “Fuck You”.
