I did smell a rat when the the frontliners began to take shape.
Here's from The Star online:
MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat on Friday claimed that an internal conspiracy was hatched to oust him as party president following MCA’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on Oct 10 last year.
“Suffice for me to say that although I had been very inclusive since elected as MCA president, a well-planned conspiracy was hatched to get rid of me after MCA’s EGM on Oct 10 last year,” he told reporters after meeting up with Penang MCA delegates here.
Aah..conspiracies and conspirators never cease to abound...
What was it they say about politics -- in the realm of politics, you're either a hero or a villain. Nothing in between.
