How come Lim Guan Eng failed to think big for DAP?
The father of Lim Kit Siang has been continuously harping on the fact that the PSY Gangnam show at the BN Chinese New Year Open House is a wasteful episode of the BN and is such a failure because PSY apparently refused to do the yee sang toss with PM Najib. Just like his son, Lim Kit Siang harps on small things because he has a small mind. Kit Siang’s rantings is like saying that how come UK PM David Cameron came and visited Malaysia and failed to drink teh tarik with PM Najib. Truly, Kit Siang is desperate and grasping at straws.
Our exclusive source has revealed to us that the PSY Gangnam show was actually sponsored by Samsung – the Korean international electronics and telecommunications corporation with the best-selling smartphone. Samsung does not want this fact to be disclosed due to reasons best known to themselves.
That is the reason why the manager of PSY even released a statement that not a single sen for PSY’s show came from Malaysia. It was not paid by Malaysians but by the Korean company, Samsung.
The fact remains that the Samsung sponsorship of the PSY Gangnam show is an endorsement of the BN Government by the multinational giant corporation.
The fact remains that thousands and thousands of Penangnites came and attended the BN Penang CNY Open House hosted by the Prime Minister and they all enjoyed the show.
The fact remains that 80,000 people turned up for one single Penang BN Open House which beats all the 32 DAP CNY Open Houses combined held throughout the State which attracts a small crowd of about 2,000 each. That itself is an embarrassment for DAP and Lim Guan Eng as everywhere the people go and attend the various DAP Open Houses, they talk about the PSY Gangnam show at the BN CNY Open House, much to the chagrin of the DAP leaders.
The fact remains that the BN moved faster and more strategically than the DAP in securing PSY for their Open House. Lim Guan Eng knew the Samsung people and yet he was caught napping as he failed to contact them and request them to help get PSY and perhaps also sponsor the show as well.
The fact remains that Lim Guan Eng has always boasted that he is able to attract top quality FDI to Penang and has always been able to impress top multinational corporations with his CAT government. But in this instant, the fact remains that Lim Guan Eng failed to even think about Samsung. Lim Guan Eng failed to even discuss this with Samsung.
The fact remains that Lim Guan Eng failed to attract Samsung to invest in Penang.
But the biggest failure of Lim Guan Eng is that he simply failed to think big. This failure is actually a good reflection of his mindset and reveals that he actually has a very small mind.
He harps, talks about and thinks about petty things – things which are pretty inconsequential anyway and overlooks the big picture. He micro-manages and loses out on the macro effect of effectively managing an important state like Penang.
That is why he is easily satisfied with and ended up with a cheap, low-class parody of the PSY Gangnam show and ripped off the superstar’s music and intellectual property by producing the DAP Ubah style video.
DAP and Lim Guan Eng is lucky that PSY did not sue them for any royalties for the rip off and unauthorised usage of his music because PSY is a big man with a big heart. Only Lim Guan Eng is a small man.
With this revelation, it shows that Penang will not progress unless there is a leader who shows inspirational and visionary leadership and who can do big things for Penang. It is now time for those other DAP leaders to learn from BN Penang’s big display and now move up and ask Lim Guan Eng to step aside as Chief Minister and make way for a big man from DAP to lead Penang to big things.
