When an animal is injured, it would perhaps pounce on anything that crosses their path. If their infected wound is not being attended with proper care and suitable medication, their infected wound will be infested with maggots and in no time the maggots grow and grow and grow.
I am no saying UMNO people are like animals, am using the same kind of example to it, but if you decide that UMNO people are like animals, then that's your personal opinion.
As reported, ""It is time to face the music: it is we who have been buried," he said."
As reported, ""Our leadership is rejected by the rakyat and, moreover, is rejected by our own members. BN's vote count was less than the number of Umno members in the constituency.""
I think Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said it best, he is one of the alright ones in UMNO and coming from a veteran in UMNO, I think people should take his advise seriously.
As reported, ""This is a second time that the Malaysian people have given a clear message, with the first at the general elections. It is a rejection of the present leader and he must leave now.""
Mukhriz Mahathir, you still dont' get it, it's not only because of the present leader in UMNO only that UMNO lost, it's the entire UMNO.
People are fed-up with the 'Ketuanan Melayu' racial nonsense that UMNO is preaching, people is fed-up with the abuse of power in UMNO, people is fed-up with the corruption in UMNO, people is fed-up with the arrogance and poor attitude of UMNO and perhaps most of all, people is fed-up with the 'loudest' in UMNO, Khairy Jamaluddin, that is. Do consider Khairy Jamaluddin is one of UMNO's downfall too.
Look deep into the problem, analyse it, discussed on it and solved it for the betterment of the people. Don't only know how to blame the leader, eventhough the leader is at fault. Take it as a team.
Yes, you may say the project managers in The Apprentice by Donald Trump received most of the firing, but that's not necessary all the time you get that. You may get a very good leader for that particular project, but if the team screw up, the team manager is screwed too!. Take it as a team
The 'wind' from 8th March 2008 is still blowing strongly, be it whether it's Arif Shah or Najib Razak or even Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who contested against Anwar Ibrahim would be ousted. If it was a 2-ways fight, even an independent candidate may be able to put up a good challenge. Come to think about it, not only against Anwar Ibrahim will they lose in Permatang Pauh, they would lose it anywhere with whoever anyhow, anytime!
