If you are still unconvinced, why don’t you respond and deny the following list of BN’s “deeds” that has gone viral in the internet
Jackson Ng, Retired Journalist
Liow Tiong Lai! Are you a Chinese or not? Your words and actions don’t show you are a Chinese. The typical Chinese hold dear to customary moral values like speaking the truth, upholding yi qi (spirit of loyalty and self sacrifice) and mian zi (your face).
From lying about the police attack on Tung Shin to the attempted annual multi-billion-ringgit 1Care rip-off of taxpayers, you continue to try and fool and sell out the Chinese in Malaysia.
You work with the racist Umno and its Utusan Malaysia, which is out to agitate the Malays to fight the non-Malays, to defend Barisan Nasional (BN). That is absolutely your right. But that right does not include lying through your teeth to hoodwink or betray Malaysians.
Utusan Malaysia has quoted you as saying that Malaysia would be bankrupted in two years if Pakatan Rakyat (PR) is given the mandate to rule.
After 55 years of Alliance/BN rule, what is Malaysia’s economic and social status?
We are less than 5% from being bankrupt based on our foreign debts and thanks to Umno’s Utusan Malaysia, Ibrahim “Katak/Perkasa” Ali and Hasan “Jati” Ali, national unity has been set back by at least 20 years.
So, Mr Liow, if you have any conscious or intelligence, tell me who is bankrupting Malaysia?
