Election Petition -- Finally it is over

Finally, the Election Petition of Bandar Kuching is over. To me the whole episode is a JOKE, orchestrated by Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP). It is a waste of my time, the Court's time and mostly importantly the Rakyat's time.

The Petitioner was introduced to Henry Ling, his lawyer, by the brother of Teng Lung Chi (SUPP's treasurer). The Petitioner do not have a bank account for several years, but on the day he filed his Election Petition against me, he deposited a sum of RM7,000 into his bank account. This RM7,000.00 is in addition to the RM10,000.00 cash that he has to deposit into Court upon filing of the Eleciton Petition.

In short, on 17-4-2008, he suddenly has in his possession RM17,000.00 cash at his disposal. Where did the cash come from?

The second witness for the Petitioner said in Court that he was approached by Seh Hua Tong (now SUPP youth chief) who asked him to be a witness in Court.

将阅读英语故事书列为小学课程

政府应把阅读英语故事书列为小学课程,以提高学生的英语程度。

上周四(2月26日),我在国会下议院参与感谢最高元首御词辩论时,针对英语教数理的政策,做出如是建议。

行动党的立场是反对以英语教数理来提升学生们的英语程度。因为,以英语教数理,学生们只能学到数学和科学的术语和深字,却无法学到英语句子的运用。 因此,英语教数理是不能提升学生们掌握英语运用的程度的。

以我本身儿子在华小就读二年级的课程为例,华小二年级的学生,每星期只上1小时的英语课,而四年级的学生每星期只上2小时的英语课。 这是不足以加强学生们的英语掌握能力。

如果政府真的有意要提升我国学生的英语程度,英语教数理不是办法,而最好的方法就是以英语教英语,并把英语故事书,如Enid Brighton系列的故事书,列为小学课程之一,强制所有学生必须阅读英语故事书。

另一个可行的提高国人英语程度的方式,就是把那些以前是英语源流的学校,如教会学校等,改回英语源流学校。 这也能让家长们有个选择,是否要把他们的子女送入华小,英小或国小。 长远来说,这制度也将为我国生产可掌握不同语言的人才。
