UMNO Unsettled in Johore

It appears that UMNO president Najib Razak invited himself to his party’s Pasir Gudang division's annual general meeting today. Johor Menteri Besar Khaled Nordin had to remind UMNO members to treat Najib with respect.

And when Najib took to the stage, he was met with indifference and disinterest. As he rambled on, he had the cheek to pronounce that 1MDB is not making a loss just yet.

What baloney! What lunacy! What asininity!

Then, Najib decided to be provocative. "If you want me to tell it, I will tell. If I tell, I will be opening a can of worms, if I don't, I will be blamed for it," he said.

But when delegates, responded by shouting: "Go ahead, open them!" – he showed his true cowardly self. He completely ignored their calls.

This is Najib Razak who is also the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Fatuous. Knavish. Lunatic.

At other Johore division meetings, things are also not quite the same anymore.

Kluang UMNO last week approved a motion urging Najib to answer questions about 1MDB. (Another motion pertaining to the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu was submitted but scrapped).

Yesterday, Parit Sulong UMNO division chief Zulkarnain Kamisan played a video of the verse "Kau ini bagaimana atau aku harus bagaimana" by Indonesian poet Gus Mus which criticized the government for robbing the people of their savings.

If you wish to hear the verse yourself, here it is:



One part of the stanza read: “You tell me to develop, and I develop but you destroy it. You tell me to save, and I save but you finish it."
 
Delegates gave a resounding “Yes” when Zulkarnain exhorted: "What we hear in the poem is what we feel down here in the grassroots". He said these were what the people have to deal with, and warned that voters would punish the party if these issues were not addressed.
 
And then he cautioned Najib not to look down on the grassroots: "The president should know that it is the voice of the grassroots that determines UMNO's leadership”.
 
It looks like in Johore, a rebellion is brewing.


 








The Scottish Premiership match between Celtic and Partick Thistle saw the former beat the latter by two goals to none. Goals by Tom Rogic (28) and Kris Commons (63).
 
Last Saturday, Celtic began the defense of their Scottish title with a workmanlike win over Ross County. The score was 2-0. Leigh Griffiths fired Celtic into the lead with a penalty after only three minutes and in the thirty-fifth minute, Stefan Johansen fired the Glasgow side's second.
