  • It looks like the Umno/BN mentality is in DAP too!

  • The greed and power hunger by the lower level of DAP members is reflecting a non discipline and respect for hierachy system. One should bids ones own capabilities , deeds, magnitude of services , respect and popularity and not by influence and emotional outburst to challenge. All should be done in due time so that competent leaders are in place to put forth the rakyat concerns and welfare . Not the unstuffed and inexperience naive ambitious members who wants to be in the glitter of policy and decision making . Obviously with PH size the vacany position are less in the making as it has to be shared to ensure collective unity and grass members should realise that and not clamouring for more to satisfy self serving causes.

  • Idiots who have small and smelly brains couldn't understand the big picture and causing troubles for self serving interests. What significant contributions have they made?

  • Compare Ng Sze Han with Tony Pua I prefer Tony Pua as Ng doesn't have much leadership quality and intelligence. To lead State DAP is different from leading Branch DAP. So just don't rock the boat. Malaysians especially Malaysian Chinese need quality leaders not half past six leader.

  • The driving force for being active in politics should be to serve the rakyat. Jostling for position is just greed.
