Can you stomach politics?

If there is any truth to the claims by various articles surfaced following the eruption of tussle between OTK and CSL, politics is certainly not for the faint hearted.

On one hand, there is an article which outlines how OTK has taken the pre-empt action to sack CSL after sensing that the latter is mounting a challenge to his leadership.

On the other hand, there is another article which depicts how CSL, after exhausted his own cash, is working with a prominent businessman to chart his comeback to main stream politics.

Last but not least, there is another article which suggests that there is a third force that has been painstakingly planning to oust both OTK and CSL so that a new leadership which is friendly to them can emerge to take over the helm of MCA.

Do you have the stomach for politics???

What does MCA and KLCI have in common?

What does MCA and share market have in common at the moment? They both have long and bumpy journey ahead to normality. At KLSE, after enjoying a few bountiful months since March 09, the months ahead will be filled with uncertainty and heartache.

At MCA, it is a great pain to see the President removing his Deputy rather than working with the latter for the betterment of the party. At a time when he should be pulling all his resources together to regain the trust of the Rakyat, he has chosen to create turbulence within the party.

If the President’s gamble does not pay off, he will be left all alone by himself to fend for mounting legal fees, returning of “donations”, personal security, etc.

There is always a price to pay for gambling.
