FORMER MCA state legislator Lee Hwa Beng’s political career ended with the 2008 political tsunami, which he felt was triggered by Indian anger towards Barisan Nasional.

The three-term Subang Jaya assemblyman had contested in the Kelana Jaya parliamentary seat and lost to an unknown newcomer Loh Gwo Burne from PKR.

  • If an Umno minister has more says and do not respect the whole of MCA openly, what more can we say about MCA? Time to pack your bags and throw your support to whichever party is good for the country and redeem yourself for a better future Malaysia for your children and grand children.

  • An Anwar - Mahathir on the campaign trail would turn into a Tsunami..Malays know when they ruled together, it was the best of times. That is why Najib is so chicken to avoid Anwar out on the husting. Frankly speaking why no one has call him chicken yet a surprise.

  • I think to say that Dr.Mahathir is going to lead a Malay tsunami lacks insight.

    Dr. Mahathir could have led a Malay tsunami if the Malays percieved Dr. Mahathir to still be a selfless , intelligent , uncompromising, confident and principled champion of the Malays , as he was perceived to be in his younger years .

    But that is not the perception the Malays have of dr. Mahathir now.

    Now Dr. Mahathir is perceived by the Malays as a weak, compromised and apologetic old man, who though is still intelligent and principled and confident , is not as intelligent and principled and confident as he once was.

    Dr Mahsthir is no longer a leader that the Malay race places their trust on.

    Dr.Mahathir might still have the affection of the Malays , but he is not their commander.

    That a former MCA rep, a seasoned politician , can think that Dr. Mahathir can sway the Malays to such an extent that it would generate a tsunami just goes to show just how little a race in Malaysia understands another race.
