On the other side, MCA leaders adamant about wanting to stay out of cabinet if they cant make the grade at the polls. That a threat or an outpouring of hopelessness or a declaration of honor infused selfless act?
The first thing that strikes you is the minimalist approach which I think is almost a doctrine in DAP. It’s all business. Here you come to do only political business. No artificial gimmicks. You come dressed simply to work. You have a simple makan, engage in minimal small talks and then adjourned to do what is demanded on the agenda of the day.No singing, no show time by invited artists, no handing out hampers.
You are quickly made conscious, that this is a party of the serious minded, do work- get results people. What does that tell you? It tells you, this party can sapu all the Chinese votes and if it pragmatically leavens its ethnic image can even entice support from non-Chinese.
