Is DAP playing the role of “fireman”?
A friend of mine thinks that DAP is playing the role of “fireman” in Malaysian politics. He said DAP in the past has helped to put off many fires set up by the BN parties . He said the time has come for DAP to play a different role if the party is serious about challenging the Umno-led BN Government.
He said that the BN is lucky because the DAP is always there to point out their weaknesses and mistakes, giving the BN the opportunity to make the necessary corrections. He said criticism coming from the DAP has in fact benefited BN.
He suggested that from now on, the DAP should allow BN to make more mistakes and let them rot to their core. For instance, he said the DAP should be lying low and just allow BN to increase prices of fuel and toll as they like. Let corruption and abuse of power grow unchallenged and we should also stop demanding for more Chinese and Tamil schools.
He argues that if the DAP continues to put off the fires set by the BN parties, the Malayisian people would find BN “bearable” and would continue to give their support to BN parties.
He said that without the intervention of DAP, BN would rot very quickly and the Malaysian people will eventually turn to DAP. Otherwise, the entire Malaysian people will rot and go down slowly together with BN. And there will be no more hope for Malaysia.
Do you find his thoughts illogical/ improper/unpractical/unacceptable? What do you think?
