Believe It Or Not, Lulu Just Read A Ng Yen Yen Speech

Lulu was doing a search on something which led her to this speech Ng Yen Yen (who was then the Wanita MCA Chairman and the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development) made at the 33rd Wanita MCA Annual General Assembly.

In point #10, she says,
My ministry provides a platform for us to enhance the effectiveness of welfare to the poor by enlarging the social safety net. I have raised the poverty line for poor families to access welfare assistance from RM400 a month to RM720 a month. I have implemented the employment of contract welfare officers, recommended by every single MCA divisions, to ensure the effective delivery of welfare to the Chinese Community.

As Lulu read this, Lulu could not help but be sickened by the thought that
  1. My ministry provides a platform for "us" -> us meaning MCA and MCA alone making use of "her" ministry
  2. this Minister who is kononnya a Malaysia Minister seems to be only interested in the "effective delivery of welfare to the Chinese Community". What about the Malays, the Indians, the Dayaks, the Kadazans, the Muruts, the Bajaus, the Orang Aslis?
  3. contract welfare officers, recommended by every single MCA divisions, would probably mean that these recruits would have to be MCA card carrying members (and proud of it) so that the MCA division can vouch for the officer
  4. Allowing MCA divisions to disburse the aid so that they can take the credit as though the money was from them instead of taxpayers like Lulu

I especially love the word 'I' repeated throughout the quote. 'I'.
