Following Tun’s own logic, Mukhriz should quit

There are 191 Umno divisions nationwide. Under these divisions are 21,245 currently active branches.

Umno divisions are present in every state except Sarawak:

  • Johor (26)
  • Sabah (25)
  • Perak (24)
  • Selangor (22)
  • Kedah (15)
  • Pahang (14)
  • Penang (13)
  • Kelantan (14)
  • Federal Territories (13)
  • Negeri Sembilan (8)
  • Terengganu (8)
  • Malacca (6)
  • Perlis (3)

Mukhriz Mahathir

Kedah’s 15 Umno divisions are:

  1. Langkawi
  2. Jerlun ← Mukhriz’s division
  3. Kubang Pasu
  4. Padang Terap
  5. Pokok Sena
  6. Alor Setar
  7. Kuala Kedah
  8. Pendang
  9. Jerai
  10. Sik
  11. Merbok
  12. Sungai Petani
  13. Baling
  14. Padang Serai
  15. Kulim Bandar Baru

Each Umno division, on average, might have 100 or more branches, e.g. Mukhriz’s Jerlun has 155, the Dr Mahathir-linked Kubang Pasu (126 branches), Langkawi (91), etc.

Umno Kedah has 1,963 branches. For a close comparison, Umno Selangor has 1,826 branches while Umno Kelantan has 2,119.

Umno Sabah is way ahead with the most branches at 5,328.

The party has a smaller presence in Penang (640 branches), Malacca (364) and Perlis (330).

Biasalah, kan ini Malay Mail yang melapor?

The Malay Mail story says in its introduction that “a faction in Kedah Umno wants Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir out”. That’s a typical MMO piece of bias downplaying the obvious.

It is not merely “a faction” (as the portal’s assistant news editor Boo Su-Lyn puts it) of Umno Kedah that have lost confidence in Mukhriz as Menteri Besar.

As a matter of fact, Umno in Kedah UNANANIMOUSLY want Mukhriz to go.


BELOW: Sins of the father


Kedah has a total of 15 Umno divisions and all of them have urged the Menteri Besar’s withdrawal. It was a full force showing of 15 division chiefs (or their deputy/representative) at the recent attempted coup d’etat press conference.

The only Kedah Umno division chief not to have lost confidence in Mahathir’s son is the head of Umno’s 15th division. Ketua Umno bahagian Jerlun adalah si Mukhriz itu sendiri.

Nonetheless, the deputy chairman of Umno Jerlun was present at the ‘no confidence’-revolt press conference yesterday.

What is PAS’s current alignment, question mark

Boo Su-Lyn further writes, “Excluding Mukhriz, Umno controls exactly half or 18 out of the 36-seat assembly”.

Hullo ma’am. Your article headline is “Does Kedah Umno have the numbers to oust Mukhriz?”

Answer your own question first lah – i.e. Kedah Umno – before detouring to the state legislative assembly. And even when talking about the balance in the House, Boo Su-Lyn still fudged.

She said Mukhriz aside, Umno controls exactly half of the 36-seat assembly.

The Dewan breakdown is:

  • Umno — 19 (Mukhriz + 18 other YBs)
  • MCA — 2
  • DAP — 2
  • PAN — 1
  • PKR — 4
  • PAS — 8

We’re really not sure how the 12 Aduns collectively from PAS and PKR will swing although it is possible that the five opposition-inclined Aduns may decide to back Mukhriz.

walking cat

Malay Mail‘s shoddy but sneaky journalism

Boo Su-Lyn lists five Aduns, namely Aminuddin Omar (Jitra), Ku Abd Rahman Ku Ismail (Guar Chempedak), Suraya Yaacob (Sungai Tiang), Mohd Rawi Abd Hamid (Ayer Hangat) and Norsabrina Mohd Noor (Bandar Baharu) as believed to be on Mukhriz’s side.

Are you sure or not, Ms Boo?

After all, the Malay Mail writer did not personally talk to the five YBs mentioned but instead quoted an unnamed “Kedah Umno Youth grassroots leader” to come up with her name shortlist above and their purported allegiance to Mukhriz.

Boo Su-Lyn speaks to one “Kedah Umno Youth grassroots leader” and consequently presumes to fly the (loyalty) pennant of five Umno bigshots on their behalf.

We await the five to clarify their real status, rather than the Mukhriz-loyalty imputed to them by this putar-belit oppo newspaper.

Akhramsyah and Mahathir

ABOVE: Tun campaigning for Akhramsyah during the last Umno Youth party election

Headcount of Umno Aduns quite a different matter

In her Malay Mail article, Boo Su-Lyn also quoted Akhramsyah Muammar Ubaidah Sanusi as rubbishing Kedah Umno deputy chairman Ahmad Bashah’s alleged (attributed to him) claim that 100 per cent of Umno Aduns are with the revolt.

What Ahmad Bashah actually said was,

“Jadi pada petang ini, kita akan buat satu kenyataan akhbar untuk tuan-tuan puan-puan. Pertama sekali, saya nak sebut adalah dengan ini dimaklumkan bahawa seluruh kepimpinan Umno negeri Kedah dan juga wakil-wakil rakyat Umno dari Kedah dan juga termasuk our Ahli-Ahli Parlimen, dan Umno ini mewakli keseluruhan ketua-ketua bahagian dan juga sayap-sayap — ketua Wanita bahagian-bahagian, ketua Pemuda bahagian-bahagian, ketua Puteri bahagian-bahagian, seluruh Kedah — kami berhimpun di sini untuk menyatakan bahawa kami telah hilang kepercayaan dan keyakinan terhadap kepimpinan YAB Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir sebagai pengerusi perhubungan Umno negeri Kedah dan juga sebagai Menteri Besar Kedah.”

Boo Su-Lyn should pay attention to details and the precise wording rather than subtly misrepresent Ahmad Bashah.

Ahmad Bashah said the entire leadership of Umno Kedah has lost confidence in Mukhriz. He said the Aduns and MPs from Umno Kedah have similarly lost confidence too.

He did not, however, encompass the “entire” (keseluruhan) complement of Umno Aduns.

This is a fine point: The write-up by Boo Su-Lyn had put words into Ahmad Bashah’s mouth (“Bashah’s claims that 100 per cent of Umno Aduns are with him”) which he did not say.

Ahmad Bashah did not say that “100 per cent of Umno Aduns are with him” as reported by the Malay Mail. What he said was “seluruh kepimpinan Umno negeri Kedah … hilang kepercayaan dan keyakinan terhadap kepimpinan YAB Datuk Seri Mukhriz”.

There is a difference between Malay Mail‘s version of “100 per cent of Umno Aduns” and the actual words uttered, “keseluruhan ketua-ketua bahagian”.

But what else can we expect from the rabidly pro-Christian newspaper except sly spin, eh?

How the Malay Mail kenakan Isma … HERE

Malay Mail magnified the views of non-office holder

Akhramsyah is Sanusi Junid’s son. Former Kedah Menteri Besar Sanusi is a Mahathir man who was leapfrogged by Tun to become the state MB previously (1996-99).

Not only was Sanusi a past Umno Jerlun division chief, he is such a Mahathir loyalist that he even resigned in protest from Umno – together with Tun – during the period when Malaysia’s 5th prime minister (Mahathir) was desperately trying to topple Malaysia’s 6th PM (Sleepy Dollah).

Clearly, the Malay Mail has chosen to interview someone (Akhramsyah) who may be well be lopsided, on top of his not holding any significant party position, i.e. he’s certainly not one of the Umno Kedah warlords/division chiefs.

Tun should advise son to heed the grassroots’ wishes

The oppo media made a big hoo-ha when 13 Umno branches in Telok Kemang and 20 Umno branches in Sepang earlier called on Najib Razak to resign.

What are 13 Teluk Kemang or 20 Sepang Umno branches?

Negeri Sembilan has 563 Umno branches while Selangor has 1,826.

Thus a mere 2.3 percent of Negeri Sembilan Umno branches and one percent of Selangor Umno branches only have called on Najib to withdraw.

Umno branches and divisions

When 13 Negeri Sembilan, 20 Selangor and later 81 Johor Umno branches voiced their dissatisfaction with Najib Razak, Tun was quick off the mark to insist that the party grassroots have lost confidence in Najib.

Now we have a situation whereby 1,963 Umno Kedah branches (as represented by the state’s 15 divisions) or 1,808 if we discount all the branches in Jerlun, who desire for Mukhriz to be booted out.

Going by the 13 Negeri Sembilan, 20 Selangor and 81 Johor Umno branches and their dissent, the Protuns claim that the Umno ground has spoken against Najib.

Following their own logic, aren’t the Kedah grassroots’ close to 2,000 branches now rebelling even more strongly against Mukhriz?

Before Najib is asked to quit as Umno president, let’s see Mukhriz heed the much, much louder and unanimous party voice in Kedah. “The people have spoken”, as the Dapsters like to say.

    Bashah lied. As Helen too vouched “seluruh kepimpinan Umno negeri Kedah dan juga wakil-wakil rakyat Umno dari Kedah dan juga termasuk our Ahli-Ahli Parlimen, dan Umno ini mewakli keseluruhan ketua-ketua bahagian dan juga sayap-sayap — ketua Wanita bahagian-bahagian, ketua Pemuda bahagian-bahagian, ketua Puteri bahagian-bahagian, seluruh Kedah ”

    But the “Kedah Wanita Umno chief Maznah Hamid has claimed she and several other party leaders were in the dark about the press conference calling for Mukhriz Mahathir’s removal as Menteri Besar”. http://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2016/01/21/maznah-i-knew-nothing-of-call-to-remove-mukhriz-as-mb/

      True.

      Look at who turned up on Jibby’s bidding to backstab Mukhriz – the Yapeim shopping & golfing guy, the Tabung Haji TRX scandal guy, the Felda scandal guy,

      PAS can tag along if they want, but they need to explain why they are echoing the views of the Kedah KBUs who defrauded YAPEIM and who bought the TRX land with TH funds.

      Will they?

      PAS were very vocal against the TRX transaction.

    Kak Helen,

    Najib is suffering from a major failure to read the rumbling grassroots sentiments

    Very soon it will not only be the rebel bloggers targetted by the PMO operatives who are revolting but large swathes of the Malay ground.

      re: “rumbling grassroots sentiments” / “large swathes of the Malay ground [in revolt]”

      Yes. This will be a quite natural reaction stemming from Mukhriz’s ouster, if it happens.

      One reader Dora Melaka commented in Zamkata (8 Feb 2014 21:43)

      “PM clueless dan khabarnya sedang bercuti kerana cuti tak boleh tangguh macam tangguh masalah.”

      Problems can be postponed, remarked Dora (two years ago)…

      But a war cannot be postponed or delayed. And that’s why the Kedah action against the sitting MB after Tun said yesterday that he will not stop until Najib is toppled. It is Tun that continues to want to draw blood.

      I believe that since the lessons of the tsunami and Bersih 4.0, Najib is hopefully learning to become the War General as desired.

      As well as acknowledging that there is no point in trying to please the opposition or the MCA either. Notice that Najib did not spend last Christmas in Penang as he did in 2013.

      Realistically, Umno-BN will get even more and unpopular, like with the latest cut in JPA scholarships and the oppo – like @hannahyeoh above – milking it for all it’s worth. And pragmatically, Najib can’t overcome unpopularity by giving in to their endless demands.

      They do not seek remedies. They insist on demanding – like Puteri Gunung Ledang – only the impossible such as tujuh dulang hati nyamuk dan tujuh dulang hati hama.

      But this time, the formerly clueless Prime Minister is making some right moves and sending out some correct signals by fighting fire with fire, or in this case, giving Tun a taste of his own medicine.

      The primary concern for the puling party is to crush the subversive fascists who are destabilizing our country. I concur with the administration taking a hawkish line.

      Those neo-Zionists do not understand any other language except the language of force. They’re only reaping what they’ve sowed.

        I don’t think he was ever clueless. He just played at seeming clueless.

        While the whole country was in an uproar over the purported overpaid consultants in the PMO, don’t you think the said consultants would have been busy planning and strategising every possibility ? Thus every eventuality would have been brainstormed, permutated and contingencies put in place.

        Keeping silent is also a plan. Let the enemy bluster. Once exhausted , then move in for the kill.

        I concur with your observation that Mukhriz must go based on Tun’s own logic. The party is more important than any individuals and if he’s not removed BN might lose Kedah in the next election.

        But what made me laugh is seeing the antics of Chinese Dapsters jumping in and showing their “heart-felt” support. And our dear the Star even felt it is important to highlight this fact. This is a classic case of Biawakism in action.

    Let’s see some consistency on how this is done. In Perak, the Sultan called on every Adun to find out if they were in support of Nizar before he came to the conclusion that Nizar then MB of Perak has lost the confidence of his peers.

    In Selangor, the Sultan and the whole state assembly were also involved in that prolonged tussle over the MB post.

    So, maybe we should let the state constitution be upheld and wait for the Pemangku Sultan Kedah to make his decree.

    Way too much politics these days. It’s like we are following the US. Non-stop campaigning for the next GE.

    A commentor, RD, posted this interesting remark in Annie’s blog.

    quote” Many of those attending the PC against Mukhriz are MPs, stationed in KL, appointed to the cabinet and are staunch supporters of ‘Cash is King’. A brown-noser (kaki-bodek) since ‘Cash is King’ was Defense Minister was also there. He was recently alleged to have misused funds destine for orphans, to play golf in the US.
    Well, if these are the sort of people that Najib chose to lead UMNO in GE, I’m lost for words. Or maybe he doesn’t care. As long as he remains PM he is immune from prosecution. GE14 would be postpone indefinitely anyway, most likely due to IS threat. After-all the NSC had made him powerful.”unquote.

    Najib also can’t overcome his unpopularity by not seeming to understand the problems of rising costs faced by the rakyat. Look, he needs to be seen as DOING something. He cut scholarships; why can’t he postpone the proposed raise in remunerations for the MPs? Why can’t the Ministers take a pay cut, like Petronas is doing? Why can’t they scale back on their overseas travels to essentials only? Those are things that the Rakyat can see and appreciate.

    He’s juggling too many hats. He should drop MoF and appoint a professional, someone who knows what he’s talking about when he talks of the economy.

    And why is Mahdzir in London talking about some change in the education policies? Do we need another shuffle in education?

      I don’t object to MPs’ pay hike.

      However, I believe that to save costs the PM should dissolve Pemandu, TalentCorp (esp. TalentCorp unless they reconfigure their scope of work primarily towards helping Dapsters emigrate to Tasmania) and NUCC.

      re: “Why can’t they scale back on their overseas travels to essentials only?”

      Sigh, what can I say?

      re: “Those are things that the Rakyat can see and appreciate.”

      The rakyat who are pro-oppo refuse to see and appreciate anything. No hope, no cure. They should be encouraged to emigrate to Tasmania.

      re: “He should drop MoF and appoint a professional, someone who knows what he’s talking about when he talks of the economy.”

      Arul Kanda has been good for 1MDB’s corporate comm, whatever the actual substance.

      re: “And why is Mahdzir in London talking about some change in the education policies? Do we need another shuffle in education?”

      Can’t say about the London venue but did you know that he used to be a school principal and he also holds a Master degree in Education. His appointment is not off the bat and certainly more appropriate than Muhyiddin, Anwar, Najib or Mahathir in the same portfolio.

        “The rakyat who are pro-oppo refuse to see and appreciate anything. No hope, no cure.” In this context, they are not important. Umno should work on not losing any more support from its base, also known as the Melayu voters.

        I don’t object the pay hike either but the Melayu yang minum kopi di warung are not happy that they are told to work 2 -3 jobs while the MPs who are not seen to be doing any work are enjoying a pay rise.

        But it would be great if he would use the money from closing Pemandu, TalentCorpse, oops Corp, to fund the scholarships.

        On Mahdzir, since he holds such a degree and was a former principal then he should know the teachers (well, most of my friends, anyway) are not happy with all the ad hoc changes to the education system.

            I know a guy who gained a scholarship to study medicine at Auckland University in 2007. He estimated that the Malaysian Government had invested RM1 million on him over the six years, and this sounds accurate to me when you take into account the lodging costs, tuition fees, allowances and the exchange rate which has been about 2.5-2.8 for the last few years.

            The scholarships to medical students are granted based on an agreed upon contract bonding the students to the government to work in government hospital for ten years after they have become qualified doctors.

            My friend graduated in 2012, came back to Malaysia for a few months, fabricated a tale about how he needed to go back to NZ for a year and therefore asked for a one year deferral. He was granted this request. This guy subsequently ended up marrying a NZ citizen whom he met during his uni days and has been working in Dunedin from 2013 till today.

            According to him, the scholarship administrators/Medical Board have not been in touch with him since he was allowed to defer his commencement of employment in Malaysia.

            This guy intends to continue to work and live in NZ and has no intentions of ever repaying the Malaysian govt. RM 1 million down the drain. Just how are these people managing and administrating the funds? Do they audit their accounts? It’s no wonder that they are having to stop scholarships when they aren’t even worried about recuperating their existing investments.

    Helen, Helen, my darling Helen.

    That you are Paranoid and Repetitive are both established beyond doubt, but never before today had I realised that “Stupid” was part of the collection.

    Based on your “analysis” above, it is.

    Here’s a little quiz for you.

    a) Assume Umno has 73,000 KBU. All 73,000 hold a press conference in a stadium and announce they have lost confidence in his leadership. When, legally, does Najib have to resign as PM? (5 markah).

    b) Because Benang Basah (a sore loser) and 14 (??? or was it – some were conned into being there) others expressed an opinion, hence every single ordinary Umno member & Ketua Cawangan in Kedah also has the same opinion. Discuss logical fallacy (5 markah).

    c) The Merdeka Centre shows 23% overall and 31% of Malays in favour of Najib. Without quivering your lower lip and applying the standard Helen Ang Stick Label Evasion Tactic (yes, yes, the Merdeka Centre are Dapster Neo-Zionist Bintang Whatever Evangelistas, yawnnnnnnn), why would grassroots in Kedah be immune from the national trend? Given that Mat Basah & the other crooks in the KBU have a financial interest in seeing Najib stay (do you, as well?) can they be said to express grassroot sentiments? (10 markah.)

    Awwwww, Helen, I am so disappointed. From neurotic but smart to neurotic and dumb, all from one post.

    But I can’ t stay disappointed for long.

    Aren’t your round cheeks adorable? Yes, they are.

      zofreis, zofries, you say in ‘that’ other blog that nobody reads helenang.wordpress and here you are leaving a string of comments (for ‘nobodies’ to read).

      And don’t lie. I’ve never said “the Merdeka Centre are Dapster Neo-Zionist Bintang Whatever Evangelistas”.

        Oh my Helen, you seemed to be a Dapster Magnet these days. I can imagine the Red Beanies busy strategizing on how to attack you at the Komtar’s 28th Floor. I wouldn’t even be surprised if they hang your picture with “target” painted on the head. Guess you must be the Enemy Numero Umo these days.

        a) “…..you say in ‘that’ other blog that nobody reads helenang.wordpress and here you are leaving a string of comments (for ‘nobodies’ to read). ”

        I presume this a reference to Annie’s blog? I have never, ever made any statement on “that” blog about people not reading “this” one. I made that statement here, on this blog. You must have me confused with someone else. Also, your nobodies are clinically fascinating too, if rather quarrelsome with each other.

        b) “And don’t lie. I’ve never said “the Merdeka Centre are Dapster Neo-Zionist Bintang Whatever Evangelistas”.

        Again, I didn’t say that. I was merely pre-empting your inevitable dismissal of any contrary argument by just sticking a label on it. I am pleasantly surprised, however, that you haven’t labelled Merdeka Centre likewise, despite their dismal figures re: Najib.

        Also, you’re just too cute to let go of, Helen : )

          You were merely being a Dapster by building straw men.

          re: “I am pleasantly surprised, however, that you haven’t labelled Merdeka Centre likewise, despite their dismal figures re: Najib.”

          I’ve cited the Merdeka Center surveys several times before. If I credited their previous findings on other topics, then how I can suddenly turn around and discredit their low ratings on Najib? Only Dapster-evangelistas can do such a thing without even blinking.

          When a politician is with BN, you smear him as dirty (all tarred with the same brush). If he decides to cross over to Pakatan, then overnight all his sins are cleansed.

          re: “Also, you’re just too cute to let go of, Helen”

          The longer you stick around, the more you expose yourself. Like claiming to have lived in Dungun for three years but mistaking ‘Rusila’ for ‘Russia’.

      Wow, I am impressed with your highly analytical and logical mind. Let take a stab at your little quiz, can I? Hope you don’t mind.

      a. Legality has nothing to do with it but what doesn’t the UMNO constitution says is applicable in this case. Practically if all the KBUs demand that, Najib has little choice, doesn’t he?

      b. Perhaps you are missing your point here. Malaysia is not a republic so the people only elect ADUNs and MPs. The position such as CM, MB, DPM and PM are decided by the party leadership using some established practices. The only condition is that the Sultan must also consent to the choice. In case of MB, he’s appointed by the state and national party leadership. If a MB has lost the trust and confidence of his fellow leaders and boss, then he has to go. The will of the people doesn’t come into this. The PM has every right to remove a state leader due to performance issues or lost trust of his team. Whether the those who attended the press conference were there willingly or otherwise is a domain of speculation. For we will never know.

      c. I am afraid your logic has slipped here too. Just because they are not happy, it doesn’t equate with people wanting Najib to leave. Obama too hit low approval rates but nobody demanded him to resign even though he was directly elected by people. As I had explained, nobody elected Najib as the PM but he’s there as the virtue of being the leader of the winning party. So in effect he was appointed by the party and until the party loses its confidence in him, he can stay.

      BTW, a little piece of advice. Please do away with personal insults to the blog owner. Don’t visit people house and then leave with your excrement all over the floor.

    Also, why does your “War General” make a habit of peeing in his pants and running away to hide under the bed in Seri Perdana?

    You make an assurance you’ll explain the 2.6 billion in Parliament, then chicken out and send Zahid to mumble “sub judice” (it wasn’t sub judice. Fail.) Class!

    What is it about microphones or open debate that makes your “War General” so terrified? Can’t even show up at something2hide to face a 90-year-old man? Sad. So sad.

    On the plus side, if doctors ever needed a urine sample from DSN, I guess they could just wring out his underwear. I guess.

    Dato Bashah calling for Mukhriz’s ouster and being the one Utusan said would be new MB holds a PhD in SRP. Kudos to Najib and the likes of Helen for championing intelligent people to become leaders.

    Let me say this. Being a Kedahan but residing in KL, being an Umno member since the early 80s and never fail to deliver vote for BN before, unfortunately I am finished with Umno under Najib. Same sentiment with all my family members and most of my relatives and friends.

    A SRP / LCE bloke for MB in this new era. Utusan (very likely Helen too) must be kidding, no?

      Kudos if you have a Master degree, like our present Education Minister.

      But paper qualification is overrated if the individual’s poor character does not match the institution he graduated from, like Oxford alumnus KJ who’s a slimy Anwar 2.0 – remember the “rasuah x3” chant against him in the PWTC?

      Where did you read about Ahmad Bashah’s academic credentials?

        Good luck to Umno and you. Najib places little importance to paper qualification. Oh i could understand why. And what has paper qualification such as KJ got to do with good or poor character? Its about well educated leadership dude, a lulusan SRP as current era MB and oh ironically, you did wrote about Mahathir Khalid’s MBA just a few days ago, right?

        Unfortunately your kudos to Education Minister could backfire too. Didnt he failed miserably as MB losing the state to PAS, no?

        And yeah, if a well educated MB could fail, dare risking a lowly educated MB too? Haiya, at least get someone with academic credentials lah as leader, supaya tak semudah itu dikelentong orang2 seperti orang oxford KJ.

        No worries Helen, try hard to check Bashah’s SRP status. Perhaps you could accuse me as Dapsters disguising as Umno and spreading lies. This is ICT era dude, Bashah cannot hide his sijil LCE = SRP.

        SO, START THINKING 50 DALIL MENGAPA SEORANG LULUSAN SRP SANGAT LAYAK MENJADI MENTERI BESAR PADA ABAD KE 21. This should be your main focus now Helen.

        P/s: Bashah, jadilah macam Chairman Dong Zong tu. Tak susahkan to taruh your academic credentials.

          2008 was a tipping point when things started falling apart.

          Even if it was Zahid who had led BN Selangor, I’m not sure that my state wouldn’t have still been lost to Pakatan.

          ABU exemplifies an extremist mindset. We have a large segment of the population (oppo supporters) who are extreme.

        Mukhriz is a University graduate with good characters as MB. Bashah is a lulusan Tingkatan 3 with untested characters as MB.

        Continue with your assumptions Helen. Shift goal post further. You know what, some one else character wouldnt reflect another one else character, like KJ’s Oxford or Bashah’s SRP. So i dont see your point on characters here. But, certainly on intelligence aspects, surely a university graduate is way more capable in administrating and managing a developed state now compared with a Tingkatan 3 or SPM dropout.

        But you are right, Najib lebih suka orang loyal daripada orang pandai. Betul kan.

          Er, Bill Gates managing Microsoft? He famously didn’t graduate.

          “Bill Gates is something of a model for education skeptics. Mr. Gates — like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Oprah Winfrey — dropped out of college.” – New York Times

          re: “But you are right, Najib lebih suka orang loyal daripada orang pandai. Betul kan.”

          I agree that under the present circumstances, loyalty would need to be highly prized by an Umno president.

            I didnt know managing a company is same as managing a gomen. All Americans should vote for Donald Trump and All Umnos should not mind their leaders academic credentials are below SPM. Shifting goal post all the time Helen. I used to whack DAP, Dong Zhong and the likes before. Umno under Najib must have joined the bandwagon especially of late.

            Nevermind, it was 3 votes from my house for Umno Titiwangsa in GE13, next time will only be 7 votes for PAS or anyone opposing Najib’s Umno. Surely Najib and Helen are not concerned at all on 7 votes swing in P. titiwangsa previously won by Umno by less than 1k majority. There are still 3.5 million members, right?

    From my observation seeing the grassroots, I opined that Tun/Mukhriz no longer have the number. They are hanging at the edge. The best way is to contest party election. Or they have to stand behind Najib. They have no choice. Using undemocratic way eg attacking via media or finding fault just show that they are desperate. I remember Tun said last time, if UMNO members want to complain, use proper channels.

      The Bashah gang should complain about Mukhriz via proper channels, not attacking via media. Using your argument.

        And i am sure Helen will not agree with me on this, right Helen?

        I am sure too the Ketua2 Cawangan Umno suspended for 6 years for going media demanding Najib’s resignation, the same cannot apply for those Ketua Bahagian going media demanding Mukhriz’s resignation because for Helen, double-standard is not applicable when it involve Najib, right Helen?

        Kan double-standard happening only within Opposition parties, Helen?
