that Najib thought he had dealt to Anwar and Pakatan Rakyat has come back to
haunt him mercilessly. It brings to my mind the antics of the imbecile
Inspector Clouseau of Pink Panther fame - a bumbling and
incompetent police inspector whose investigations are marked with chaos and
destruction that he himself largely causes. His clumsy attempts at
solving the case frequently lead to misfortune for himself and others!
Najib’s succession as King of all he surveyed in Malaysia….what a way to
announce his entry into power …taking back Perak from the opposition! Yes this
he did…but at what cost?
2009 until today Perak is in flux. Azlan’s Shah neutrality as Sultan of Perak
was sorely tested and questioned by the people of Perak because Najib dragged
the Sultan into the mess. The State Assembly has now descended into a place of
chaos and farce resembling wrestling within the rings of the WWF. Without PDRM
overwhelming presence in the State Assembly, the state government installed by
Najib cannot even exert its authority within the house, what more the state.
Predictably the three opposition assemblymen that crossed over to Barisan
Nasional were at one point or another involved in money politics, outright
corruption, paid sex and illicit sex.
by-election of the federal parliamentary seat in Bukit Gantang, won by Nizar
with an increased majority, is any indication of things to come in Perak, then
the opposition will win back Perak with an increased majority at the next
election opportunity. And more worrying it confirmed Nizar’s, who stood for the
Islamic PAS party, as having the ability to win overwhelming support from the
Chinese and Indian voters – and his emergence as another capable opposition
leader that will have much to contribute towards making life uncomfortable for
And then Sodomy
Two. Here even Sang Kanchil with its legendary guile and cunning would have an
impossible time trying to keep up with proceedings….and so the call goes out
again to Inspector Cloueseau.
Every new day of
this Sodomy Two adventure brings with it hilarity at its very best at the
expense of Najib. From the bumbling start the evidence all point out to
collusion between Najib and Saiful to concoct the sodomy two case against
entertained to a tableau of anal or anus horribilis. For a country that is only
now contemplating the necessity of sex education in schools we were given
another Mahathir like show where anything and everything can and will be used
to humiliate another Muslim, another Malay – if that is what it takes to rid
UMNO of a troublesome adversary. The question of guilt or innocence, justice or
fairness does not enter into the equation.
Then as in all
matters where Najib takes charge this punitive exercise predictably descended
into farce. It started with an aide to Najib, Khairil Jusoh, the same Khairil
Jusoh who posed with Saiful outside Najib’s Office, bonking each other.
Saiful, having, like Najib, used religion for his own purpose, was resolute
in his resolve to go ahead with sodomy two.
emergence of yet another sexual escapade – this time that of Saiful and Farah
Azlina Latif, deputy public prosecutor (DPP) involved in the same case.
Then just when
it seems that all was quite on the western front another broadside from
What about the
AG fornicating with his own head of department? Ohhh the mind boggles with all
the goings on in the Attorney General’s office!
Yes it is
possible! When you control the media in Malaysia that can be done. It is not
a matter of if anyone will or will not, but a matter of when some one will tell
Najib that the King has no clothes. Meantime our country lurches from one
shambles to another!
The only thing
that can top this is if you have Najib, Saiful and the Attorney General in a Ménage
à trios…in bolehland is that possible?
Najib must be
running out of ideas by now. UMNO’s support has slumped under him. There are
now engaged in brinkmanship politics with MCA. MCA endorsement and support was crucial
to Barisan Nasional holding on to power in the last general election and will
be critical again in the coming election. Barisan Nasional has been damaged by
revelations of Taib’s greed in Sarawak….something that has been under wraps
UMNO handled the
losses of the 12th general election by heaping blame upon Pak Lah
and installing Najib as president of UMNO. How will they handled their present
impasse? With Muhyiddin? Well for a start Muhyiddin could hardly do worse then
Najib…or could he? Ohhh the perils of being an unelected Prime Minister must be
excruciating to bear.
UMNO has to
decide who is to lead them. If they do not chose Muhyiddin now to lead them
into the 13 general election will there be any UMNO left after the 13th
GE for anybody to lead? MCA is disintegrating. MIC is always what it has always
been – a sideshow with a cast permanently headed Samy Velu. The premise that
has allowed UMNO to stay in power for the last 53 years is rapidly losing its
relevance – Ketuanan Melayu has become an anvil around UMNO’s neck. UMNO needs
to cast it aside to get the Malays and the non Malays onto their side and yet
UMNO’s very survival is dependent on keeping the ketuanan Melayu anvil around
their neck! Damm if I do and damm if I don’t.
UMNO needs to
connect with voters who are too keenly aware that UMNO politicians are corrupt,
greedy and obsessed with power – and these same voters are too aware that their
votes counts. Looking at all this it would seem that UMNO’s task is formidable.
But its current
crisis is self-inflicted by a Prime Minister -Mahathir – who has since left, and a current Prime Minister
who has no clue on how to deal with a worsening political impasse. Najibs modus
operandi is to ignore the elephant in the living room. Quite like the fainting
goat that faints at any sign of stress or danger and then gets up again sometime
later to proceed with life.
Fainting Goat: "A fainting goat is a breed of domestic goat whose muscles freeze for roughly 10 seconds when the goat is startled. Though painless, this generally results in the animal collapsing on its side. The characteristic is caused by a hereditary genetic disorder called myotonia congenita. When startled, younger goats will stiffen and fall over. Older goats learn to spread their legs or lean against something when startled, and often they continue to run about in an awkward, stiff-legged shuffle".
The question that the goat does not address is
that if a predator were to be around while the goat was out for the count, it would be
eaten up before he recovers from his faint! So I think Najibs would have to
stop his fainting spell for now and remain wide awake to deal with the elephant in the room.
angry. You only need to mention politicians in a conversation and every one in
the kampong will off and running after the proverbial pencuri brandishing an unsheathe
parang or keris (whichever is handy) going after the pecuri. But their anger is contained, slow-
burning and building up in a passive aggressive manner. They will not put up
with the politics of Barisan Nasional anymore.
UMNO claims of
entitlement and wealth has made the ordinary people of this country understand
that UMNO does not care about the ordinary Malaysians.
difference between Malaysian and the tin pot alley dictatorship in Africa is
that here in Malaysia, UMNO clings to power legally. So bring in the 13th and let the people decide.
capital left by his father legacy has been frittered away recklessly as Najib
prioritized his personal agendas over the nations. Without the political
capital left by those before him Najib is bankrupt of ideas.
thought in your mind when you think of UMNO. Think of the ship orchestra
fiddling away desperately for their dear life on a sinking ship. The Captain
shouts encouraging words to the orchestra urging them to hold fast even as he
steps into a lifeboat to safety. The orchestra is UMNO. Surely it is a measure
of how desperate UMNO is if it is their own tongue that must be used to praise
themselves! The only hope UMNO has is for a hopeless future. Amen
