A Scorecard on Ong Tee Keat

1. I met my friend Edmund today, for the first time in about 4 months while he was down in KLCC to watch a movie and buying some books. The first thing he asked me is that whether have I read a post of his that details the number of shouting matches and fights between him and DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang.

2. No doubt that having watched a number of videos of both of them, I'd say that the shouting matches between these two men, particularly on the Port Klang Freezone is no doubt the best of what the Parliament circus offers to us after reconvening from the middle of the month. But I must concur with his opinion that in the last 16 months since being appointed the Transport Minister, Tee Keat has done nothing really significant and despite promises to make MCA an active partner of the Barisan Nasional, the MCA still remains a lapdog of the coalition boss, United Malays National Organisation.

3. True, there isn't much of action taken following the release of the PKFZ report, and now, parties are pointing fingers one another and the actual guilty ones are not questioned at all, e.g Chor Chee Heung. There is also the public transport issue thing, that despite having being experienced of the reality of the situation by Abdullah Badawi, there isn't still much of radical action taken there.

4. In summary, I am afraid that despite him being in helm, MCA still remains a lapdog. Interestingly, there are two things that I was told, with one notably of him finding schedules of when, where and what Najib Razak or Muhyiddin Yassin will particpate in an event and he'd go there to give a clap or two. Recently during the launch of the Chinese version of Dr. Mahathir's Letters To World Leaders, he was the only VIP person there and no one else. Another claim that I was told he's politcally backed by Hainanese businessmen from Pahang.

5. There is no deliberate intention of badmouthing a person, but it has been my observation after reading through whatever is written in the news, paper or online.

  1. Sure got Hainanese backing, he's a Hainan descent, mah.

    Just want your comment, is it good or bad for the rakyat when this Ong Tee Keat really demonstrate action by coming out with this PKFZ?

    While I respect old timer uncle Kit, I am disappointed he has not come out with any laws in Parliament. In US, the congressman all fight to make laws so that they can have testimony as effective lawmaker...

    I'm really curious why DAP so far cannot do much on the law drafting side. So many experts there.
