SHOCKED AND STUNNED

I’ve just heard the devastating news that Isa Samad has been named the UMNO candidate for the Batang Pinang by-election!

What must the leadership be thinking? Or are they thinking at all?

When the whole country is watching and waiting to see if the President and Deputy President are serious about their pledge of eradicating party corruption, they have selected the very person who was found guilty of money politics and suspended by the party for 3 years!

They have appallingly succumbed to the pressure from the very people who should be booted out of the party. What does this say about the integrity of the leadership!

Or is it the case of I scratch your back, you scratch my back; I hide your skeletons, you hide my skeletons – in your cupboards that is!

Some of the UMNO branch and division leaders, supreme council members and even those higher up in the hiearchy will continue to hoodwink the rural folks who are still loyal to the party and made to feel dependent on the handouts they receive! They will be beholden, terhutang budi and continue to give their votes.

But I believe the Opposition will gain ground and slander UMNO and its leadership further! I believe the support for UMNO will diminish among the thinking and rational voters!

I really hope there’ll be many more Malaysians who will think straight and place utmost importance on personal honour and dignity!

As my friend Nasirah says we must begin to VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATE WITH INTEGRITY NOT FOR THE PARTY WITHOUT INTEGRITY!

    I staggered with disbelief as well upon hearing the announcement of Isa Samad as the chosen candidate for PRK Bagan Pinang, amidst cheers all around!! Looks like BN will win the Battle, but might eventually run the risk of losing the War! Really hoping against hope that I will be proven wrong..

    Funny old world indeed GUiKP when the row of BN and UMNO leaders clapped their hands in glee to hail the selection of Isa Samad! And what does the man himself have to say but to snigger a remark about ISA’s indispensability. That’s the extent of Malaysian wit for you!

    But the extent of the malaise of the UMNO Malays is staggering indeed ma cherie ol’zai! Il est tres “disconcertment”! They are swayed again and again by the promise of wealth and development! To hell with integrity, they say, when their lives are wanting! When they keep on getting!

    For as long as the UMNO rural/grassroots base remains in this mode of thinking UMNO can survive. So it’s best not to educate or enlighten them too much, say the branch and division heads and supreme council members and a couple of the VPs and the Ketuas!

    What a sham! Somehow this time a kind of malaise is enveloping me! I hope we’re proven right!

    Ne t’ínquiète pas ma chère! L’importance c’est de essayer toujours d’écrire en français. Peu à peu tu vas faire des progrès,je t’assure! Toi, tu es fatiguée? Mais non, ce n’est pas vrai – tu n’es jamais fatiguée..!
