Should Salleh Said Keruak have the PM’s ear, then he must …

… advise Najib Razak to disarm, in one bold stroke, those of his ministers concealing a poisoned dagger in their hand. Purge the disloyal elements in Cabinet – there’s no other option.

What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. If Najib Razak survives the present bid to oust him, he will emerge stronger and be the war general that the BN needs to fight the next general election.

Jadi ada juga hikmah di sebalik dugaan. Kenal dah siapa kawan dan siapa lawan.

Dagger Behind Smile

Team players, trust and the Boss’ back

Sabah Speaker Salleh Said Keruak shared the timely reminder that the Cabinet “works on the basis of collective responsibility”.

He wrote:

“If Cabinet Ministers have anything to say then it should be done during the Cabinet meetings. We must remember that it is the Prime Minister who appoints them as Ministers so if they feel they no longer have confidence in the Prime Minister or disagree with certain Cabinet decisions then they should resign instead of trying to derail what the Prime Minister is doing.”

FMT MCA man Tabung Haji

Wee disclaiming any responsibility

MCA deputy president Wee Ka Siong, who is a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, apparently does not subscribe to the notion of Cabinet collective responsibility.

Whiny Wee tweeted that he has no knowledge of the purchase by Tabung Haji of the 1MDB land in TRX. Wee said that he too had “obtained information relevant to this issue from the media”.

However, don’t expect him to do the honorable thing and resign his Cabinet chair as suggested by Salleh – even if he and MCA have lost confidence in Najib. If looks like Wee’s preferred path could be to try and “derail” the beleaguered PM instead. Wee’s stance on 1MDB certainly amounts to it.

Wee could not even adhere to principle and abide by the MCA’s own resolution, taken in two separate EGMs during Chua Soi Lek’s tenure, that party leaders reject Cabinet and exco appointments following the abysmal performance of the MCA in the last general election.

@saifuddinabd Wee Ka Siong

Hullo! Is MCA opposition, ah?

Wee Ka Siong is not a blogger or a Facebooker for whom it’s alright to be critical of the government since we have nothing to do with the administration. This is however not the case with a federal minister, especially one who is parked in the PM’s Dept itself like Wee is.

The MCA man should be defending his Boss and doing his best to inform the public. His job is not to shrug and say, “Don’t look at me. I dunno nuttin ’bout it. I just read the papers like you all.”

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

As I’ve said in past postings, BN supporters suspect that in the event of a hung Parliament, MCA will be first to jump ship and swim over to the other side. MCA leaders nowadays are sure beginning to sound more DAP than the DAP.

Good riddance!

In any case, the PM’s Dept is already a bloated XXL. Ministers in the Prime Minister’s Department are Jamil Khir Baharom, Shahidan Kassim, Joseph Kurup, Joseph Entulu, Paul Low, Nancy Shukri, Abdul Wahid Omar and Mah Siew Keong. There’s also the Pemandu chief Idris Jala. And Wee Ka Siong makes ten.

Oh, just get rid of Wee. MCA should never even have been brought back into Cabinet.

Pro-establishment Malay voters will definitely despatch the MCA to oblivion in GE14. Najib is currently earning nobody’s goodwill by propping up the MCA as the BN’s multiracial mannequin. The ‘rioters’ are breaking the window already.

    Talking about SSK, anyone here has the full video for the PM’s solidariti thingy in Sabah today pls link. TV3 was showing some clips. Saw SSK and a few other faces in the front. Amazing how firm Najib can sound when he is confident he is standing in front of supporters. Boleh sound off TDM lagi.

        True,and if we go by the 40,000 or so crowd they managed to put together in Sabah today, it looks like he may pull through. But if we were to read the opinion pieces from the malays in the peninsula, the support is not quite there. And people who are standing up for him like Ahmad Mazlan, Ku Nan, Hasan Malek,even Azeez seemed to be out of favour now. MCA we can discount totally, in terms of malay support.

        Honestly, it’s difficult for me to picture who are going to make up this lean, mean fighting machine.

          Tun is always complaining that the Malays are split into three: Umno, PAS, PKR

          Now he himself is splitting the Malays into four: UmnoBaru, Umno Lagi Baru, PAS, PKR

          Maybe the problem is precisely b’cos the people who are standing up for him are like Ahmad Mazlan, Ku Nan, Hasan Malek, etc.

          This Salleh fella is much more sensible, and smart.

          Sabah Umno should help Najib and in turn demand payback – next DPM a Sabahan. You like Anifah Aman. Shafie Apdal seems to have clout, in order to have emerged party VP. Rahman Dahlan the pugilist (here’s the lean, mean fighting machine) is also from Umno Sabah.

          You just need to have the determination. I’m one against nine wrt my political views vis-a-vis the larger Chinese community. Ada aku kesah?

            “Ada aku kesah?” – was how I read the Najib speech clip at the rally in Sabah. Maybe he’s finally showing some balls. (Although that 1MDB-TH “un-deal” was a cop-out. Should have stayed the course.)

            If Najib is looking to Sabah Umno for help, there’s going to be quite a few disgruntled Umno chiefs this side of the sea. This is going to get more interesting. Personally, I think we can use a few more sensible people the likes of Anifah and Rahman Dahlan (not the Bung type, please) from across the sea in the high ranks.

              Umno Sabah has 14 MPs, which is double the number of MCA’s.

              PM should start jettisoning 1Malaysia, and dissolve NUCC, GMM and TalentCorp.

              But the icing on the cake would be … jeng-jeng-jeng pray hard

                Helen, Najib jangan ‘overexcited’ dengan kehadiran lebih 40.000 dalam perhimpunan di Tawau. Ingat PRU 13, bila Najib tersenyum simpul, tersenggeh senggeh macam punggong kambing bila melihat ribuan Cina datang ke kempen perdananya di PP. Hasilnya lebih 90% Cina pergi sokong DAP. Nasib baik Melayu sokong penuh!

                Situasi sekarang sudah mula berbeza. Saya agak yakin orang orang Sabah jujur dalam menunjukkan sokongan mereka. Tapi orang Melayu sudah mula berubah dan bosan dengan Najib!.
                Isu TH adalah isu yang sensitive bagi umat Islam dan Najib ‘screw it’

                Kalau Najib sayangkan agama, bangsa dan Negara, berundurlah! Jangan ego dengan semangat Bugisnya! Semangat Bugis tidak akan menghasilkan sokongan.

                Saya yakin Cina, jangan haraplah mereka hendak menyokong Najib. Melayu juga ramai yang marah dengannya. Jadi berapa lagi yang yang tinggal ?

                Melayu sekarang sudah berpecah kepada UMNO,PKR dan PAS. Dalam UMNO juga mula berpecah. Jangan perkecilkan pengaruh TDM dalam UMNO dan orang Melayu!

                Saya? Antara TDM dengan Najib, tanpa berkelip mata akan pilih TDM!

                  Tun is the war general par excellence but at 90 years old, he’s not going to be (or having ambition to be) PM again to serve his 23rd year in office.

                  Lots of people will choose Tun without any hesitation but he’s not on the menu. The choices are Najib, Muhyiddin, Zahid, Shafie Apdal or Hisham.

    How come no hulabaloo from ISMA, Perkasa, Pekida, Pekema, Menteri Agama, Jakim and all the other Muftis and religious bodies involving this 1MDB vs LTH thing?

    Why is MCA, Gerakan, MIC so busybody with LTH when they are not even their depositors? You can’t blame PKR, DAP, PAS or other PR parties since they have moslems who are also LTH depositors, can you?

    Now the lines are drawn clearly as who are the Rats and Brutuses in UMNO as well as in BN.

    It’s time the PM get rid of Mahafiraun and all the Mahathirists he cultivated during his dicatorial reign of “My Way only”.

    It’s now or never. Mahafiraun dynasty must be sqashed once and for all if he wants to survive till the next election.

    Thank the Almighty that he still has the ISA and POTA to help him. That’s what it’s for anyway for every feudalistic regime.

    A new Malaysian dynasty is born till the next election.

    Salleh Ketiak is not the only friend that NA-jib has. Rajah Peter and a mantan menteri are also advising NA-jib.

    Of all the people, it has to be Rajah Peter and the mantan menteri, both known betrayal who turned against UMNO and now fight for the destruction of UMNO and BN, who are advising NA-jib about getting rid of traitors with daggers in order to save UMNO.

    What !? To save UMNO ?! Mantan menteri and Rajah Peter want to save UMNO ?!

    Mind you they are the best teachers on modern Islam, too, cakap sampai mulut berbuih.

    And the President of UMNO has got a friend in both these teachers.

    No wonder he’s so confident in Sabah.

    And he will survive where he has the likes of Ambiga making the allegations against him. If his enemies in parliament and within the party are aligned with her, they have Buckley’s chance of dislodging the PM. None

    I think that defiant speech so far away from Putrajaya, attacking TDM openly, may very well turn out to be Najib Razak’s nazak cry. When his own DP and 2 out of 3 of his own VP, including his own nephew, went against him, I don’t think he has a chance. The TH fiasco is the last straw. And now with this speech, instead of rallying the support that he had hoped, he has just put another big hole in his Pinisi Bugis! He has only succeeded in accelerating his own demise. One by one will leave his pinisi bugis, except for 2 person, Rosmah – because there is just too many luxury goods still on board, and Najib- because Rosmah tells him so.

    The thousands of cheering Sabahans are not the ones determining his political life. Neither are the public as he had hoped. Its the Umno warlords. Is that how you rally their support, in Tawau, Sabah, so far away from the centre, Putrajaya? Is he stupid or what?

    Last night must have been a pretty busy night for the warlords, lots of secret calls and meetings. It will be very interesting to see what happens at today’s Umno anniversary celebration.

    “… advise Najib Razak to disarm, in one bold stroke, those of his ministers concealing a poisoned dagger in their hand. Purge the disloyal elements in Cabinet – there’s no other option.”

    The pro-Mahathir gang is far more likely to be disarmed than the others. That is why Najib is in Sabah. To secure the loyalty of Umno and Barisan Nasional in Sabah. I wonder how many promises of posts and contracts were doled out?

    Yes, perhaps Najib will be the so-called ‘war general’ but what will you say once he begins his offensive against the pro-Mahathir faction?

      Tun Mahathir is not a member of Najib’s cabinet. Neither is Daim or Zam. The PM can’t sack any one of them.

      It’s obviously dangerous to have ministers in his own Cabinet who will stick a dagger in his back. You don’t have to be Sun Tzu to see this.

      His Cabinet is bloated and can bear some trimming. MCA’s Wee is the obvious first one (low-hanging fruit). There are others, of course.

        Yet it is Mahathir and his supporters are the ones showing their daggers from within the party. Indeed they are not part of the Cabinet but they are a threat to Najib. Meanwhile, Najib and his backers have some schemes to disarm the Mahathir gang.

        Just make sure you do not end up a casualty in this infighting between two factions.

              Yeah, you’re right. We – those affected, i.e. Datuk Kadir, SAA, Apanama, even Rocky (for some unfathomable reason) – have our suspicions as to who the culprit is.

              But being blocked is not the same as being at the receiving end of vitriolic abuse like being called @#%$&*#! and being the target of smear campaigns.

              Being blocked is frustrating, like being firewalled but it’s not like being the victim of a whispering campaign having outrageous spread about you.

              And that’s the difference between BN and Pakatan. I’ve never felt that anyone from MCA has ‘kena’kan me either.

              Yes, because arguing on the internet is worse than getting cyberattacked by government-backed hackers, even though the latter has the future risk of your computer being hacked or bugged with spyware, if they have not done so already.
