Farting is no big deal — Tay Tian Yan
OCT 26 — With only a simple sentence — “personal pledge is no big deal but public trust is” — no one dares asking MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat to step down now.

Even if he doesn’t keep his word, even if he has intermittently lost his memory, even if his reputation and credibility have been destroyed, so what? It’s no big deal.

Because the Chinese community… oops, should be the Malaysian community, the whole world community would be more appropriate, is having tremendous expectations for him. How can he just wave and go?

He cannot go as the world has expectations for him. The Chinese community will collapse, the Malaysian community will have a bleak future while the end of the world will be coming soon if he leaves.

Therefore, who dares ask him to go? What’s the big deal with the trifling 14 votes at the extraordinary general meeting (EGM), the central committee’s signature campaign and “being ambushed from all directions”?

Since the sentence is very powerful that it can turn bad into good, under Ong’s leadership MCA should be able to promote the spirit behind the sentence, including becoming indomitable, more courageous and ever-victorious, to highlight the Chinese cultural essence.

At this point, I would like to give a few examples to show how the sentence can be widely used:

The central delegates’ decision is no big deal but the president’s position is. Therefore, the central delegates should not complain about why the voting result is not playing its role here.

Infighting is no big deal but the intervention of an outsider is powerful. MCA is incapable of handling its own affairs and has to rely on the external power. Don’t worry about losing face, it has always been like that. All you have to do is get used to it.

Trauma is no big deal but internal injury is. After fighting for a whole year, MCA leaders have been badly wounded but don’t worry, these are only traumas. Just apply some ointment to the cuts. However, as a political party, its tarnished image, loss of direction and ruined credibility are all internal injuries which may claim its life.

Forcing an abdication is no big deal but being wary of eavesdroppers is. It is said that during a secret meeting of the central committee, someone actually leaked information, allowing the president to break the plan. Farting is no big deal but letting others to know about it is.

The central committee had been blasting Ong, making several calls for him to resign. But today, it has fallen silent and no one dares to admit that it wishes that Ong abdicates.

Sexual activity is no big deal but being videotaped is: wise remarks by experienced former deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

Personal morality is no big deal but loosing positions is. They sacked Dr Chua by stressing on morality before this but are throwing the sex DVD and morality into the rubbish bin now. — mysinchew.com
