In this land of Hang Tuah, the knives are out (as usual) as Malaysiakini tells us of Intrigue at Umno to topple Abdullah.
Candidate for the UMNO NO 2 position, Muhyiddin Yassin, has asked for the party election to be brought forward to the original date of December instead of March next year.
While Muhyiddin claimed his proposal has to do with shortening the campaigning period, AAB reckoned it was to get rid of him a.s.a.p.
AAB believes that his Nemesis, Dr M, has been the provocateur.
Dr M of course wants to see Najib as PM soonest. He doesn’t trust AAB and his family to honour the March handover.
If we recall, when AAB was in power, his camp had gone to extraordinary length to ‘blockade’ Dr M’s voice being heard within the party, to the extent that Dr M was forced into accepting any platforms including the one organized by Raja Petra Kamarudin to criticize AAB and his children’s policies and actions.
For more, please read The UMNO Interdiction of Dr Mahathir!The opposition, particularly PKR and PAS were so delighted to have Dr M lambasting UMNO that even PAS named Dr M as a ‘national treasure’ wakakaka. I want to see whether PAS will change its mind when Najib becomes PM and Dr M is seen as voicing his ‘opinions’ again.
Yes, that perfidy so famous in UMNO has also come unto KJ, at one time so powerful that almost everyone in UMNO were falling down in the mad rush to be seen by his side.
The Star Online reported in Khairy dealt Putrajaya blow that 2 Umno Youth divisions, Putrajaya and Tapah hitherto seen as in KJ’s camp, gave KJ the Judas Kiss.
Putrajaya gave leng chai SIL a fatal blow when it picked Mukhriz Mahathir over Khairy as its choice for the Youth chief post. It’s interesting to note that the division Youth chief Ahmad Zaki Zahid is a close friend of KJ and special officer to AAB. He couldn't deliver.
Then the new Tapah Umno Youth chief Khairuddin Mohd Jali also cheekily said that the delegates felt that Khairy should remain in his current capacity as deputy Youth chief as he was still young and had a long way to go.
Hah, that perfidious political wind of change!
Talking about UMNO's brand of loyalty, I deem that bloke who had penned a poem on Teresa Kok as a dog had unwittingly paid her a great compliment because humorist Josh Billings informed us that “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
As for those anti-dog camp, I reckon the backstabbing must have been how Jebat felt when his best mate Tuah turned on him for a mere tyrant.
Biar mati anak: Jangan mati adat (Better your children die than your traditions).
Well, the UMNO tradition lives on!
