I would not extol Nazri's often tactless remarks, nor would I exhort him to seek penance for his ways.It's different strokes for different folks.
There is relevance in Jema Khan's article here as far as the MCA is concerned and the Chinese community disconcerted ties with the party. The community support has plunged into the deepest abyss of mistrust. After the 2008 General Elections trouncing, MCA has shown little in term of picking up the pieces and restoring confidence in the party.
Even the foolhardy would not have believed that the party have been nursed back to health and are ready to take on the general elections with a bang.For almost half a century the Chinese community had been deluded that they represent the community, they did, for themselves.
It's high time MCA leaders face the reality that their glorious days are over and accept their hapless situation and try make the best of it or leave the BN and prove that Nazri was wrong in his assumptions, that they still have the pull factor with the Chinese community.
I am not supporter of the oppositions but my reckoning is DAP, which I have said many times in this blog, would grab most, if not all, Chinese majority seats in urban areas. MCA, Gerakan and Chinese based parties in Sabah and Sarawak will get the crumbs, unless a miracle turn up at the last hour.
You can dismiss this at your own perils.
