Lim Keng Yaik has spoken

After Tan Chee khoon, Gerakan has not been as vocal as before in articulating political views, or may not be as effective as before. Lim Keng Yaik has spoken out and is well known for speaking out. And he said he would not keep quiet even after he quits politics. He is the second Minister to speak out on the deteriorating racial relations in the country. He told the guilty party that racial issues must not be used to bully the minorities. The sad thing is that this has been going on for the last 30 odd years. But it is better said later than not at all. And it is better said now then eventually having no place and no right to say them if things are allowed to go the way it is. What happens to those sellout ministers and politicians who are representing the minorities? Are they still content to keep quiet as long as their private interests are not disturbed? What are they waiting for after being slapped and slapped ands slapped for all these years and still have the face to face their people? Sometimes I wonder whether politicians are in politics to serve the people or to serve themselves.

hahaha, big deal. With his imminent retirement from politics, Keng Yaik is a lameduck lader. Everyone can talk, but whwther the powers that be take any note of it is the important thing. Same like all of us here. We talk so much, yet nothing concrete happens cos the gahmen never regard us as anything more than a bunch of tired, old ah peks sitting in a coffeeshop.

we talk because we just want to share our ideas, and test our views. don't expect to change anything.

want to change anything, go and fight in the political arena. there are places for small talks, like kopitiam. there are places for big talks like parliament.
