DAP parliamentarian Kelvin Yii has stepped up to ‘clarify’ that the university scholarships for Palestinians would NOT be funded by taxpayers.
But Mahathir had originally said the Malaysian government was offering the scholarships – listen yourself from the video below – when he made the announcement.
All the mock cheques for the scholarships as seen above are tagged JPT (Jabatan Pendidikan Tinggi) or Higher Education Department.
MCA vice president Ti Lian Ker wonders if the ‘D’ in DAP stands for (running) Dog?
Err, ‘Duplicitous’ possibly? Datuk Ti should ask former deputy education minister Datuk Chong Sin Woon, who might have some ministry insider knowledge, to get to the bottom of this disputed narrative.

The Ides of May
DAP decided to lock out the media from its national convention this year. The party delegates, however, leaked some of their grouses to the press. Among the stinging rebukes are:
(i) No ‘C’ompetency
DAP got shafted by Mahathir over the 90:10 matriculation quota, whereby matric student intake increased to 36,000 for bumiputera vs only an estimated 1,600 slots for Chinese applicants.
(ii) No ’A’ccountability
What are all the non-Malay STPM students to do now that there will be an additional 13,500 bumiputera matric students vying for the same (stagnant) number of university places? DAP has to answer to Dapster parents who misplaced their fond HOPE in Harapan but whose own children’s dream of an affordable tertiary education may be dashed next year.
(iii) No ‘T’ransparency
ABOVE: Is the DAP AGM being held behind closed doors to protect Lim Guan Beng and his party leadership from attacks by delegates for aiding and abetting Mahathir in neutering the Chinese chihuahua?
It was only last December that DAP mocked MCA – under the stewardship of its post-GE14 president Wee Ka Siong – for holding the Chinese party’s AGM behind closed doors. But look at the identical media blackout enforced by DAP themselves this week. What hypocrites!
May 7 and beyond
One 392g tin of susu pekat manis at Tesco costs almost RM5! … Pengsan
And you know how Malaysians have a sweet tooth, especially the B40 Malays.
Even the DAP delegates too had told The Malay Mail that under the SST introduced by Beloved Finance Minister, the prices of essential items are still as expensive as they were under the previous GST. Actually, harga barang lagi naik berbanding zaman BN.
First anniversary of the Killing Fields.
Chart above of DAP (red) vs MCA (blue) parliamentarians represents how the evangelical Harapan party finally succeeded in wiping out the Chinese BN party last year after dealing severe blows in the two earlier tsunami elections of 2008 and 2013.
Ninety-five percent of the Chinese voters chose to throw their lot with DAP and the racist Mahathir. You sow the wind, you reap the whirlwind.
The main contenders are DAP vs PBS. Best time for Sabah voters to teach the DAP incumbent a lesson for the party’s nepotism, taking voters for granted, broken promises, slander and deceit.
This year marks the epochal 50th anniversary of May 13.
Back in 1969, Kit Siang was ISA-ed in the aftermath of the riots where the DAP hardcore supporters perangai macam setan. Nothing much has ubah in terms of their behaviour.
