A strong UMNO is not good for a multiracial society

Just for laughs, here's a good one from MCA...

Disputing DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng’s statement yesterday that Umno was the opposition party’s main enemy in the next general election, Ong said it was illogical for the DAP to ask all Chinese voters to vote for the party just to fight Umno.

"The fact is, DAP only contests in MCA-contested seats," Ong said today. Ong said Lim was merely trying to fish for votes by misleading Chinese voters.

"The Barisan Nasional (BN) has a well-tested power sharing system. When Umno is stable with the support of the Malays, the MCA, which is an important strategic partner, naturally also needs to be stable and strong so that we can function effectively in the same system," Ong said.
That's just it. The MCA is UMNO's 'strategic partner' ONLY in the sense that a servant is a strategic partner in getting his master's toilet cleaned. When have MCA and Gerakan done anything apart from constantly acquiescing to every one of UMNO's bigoted demands?

And Ong finishes off with this gem of a quote:
"It is not going to be good for a multiracial society if Umno was very strong but other component parties are very weak.
Yes, he's quite right. I agree absolutely. The only difference is that Ong believes that this is the 'future' (if we don't vote for MCA and Gerakan), but I believe that this is actually the present situation. And we're in this mess precisely because we voted for MCA and Gerakan, and they know nothing else besides being UMNO's bitch and taking one up the arse.
