Umno and Bersatu : Fool me Once shame on you….
Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. But how many times can Din keep fooling Umno again and again and Umno keeps falling for the ruse…what does that make Umno? The perpetual idiots?
This is what Din and his political pariahs have been doing to Umno. Forever dangling the banana in front of Umno’s nose. Umno can see that the banana is there. So tantalizingly close and seemingly within reach, but it seems that Umno does not understand that the banana is beyond its reach. Now not only has Najib and Zahid understood that Din will always have that glass barrier between the banana and them, now all of Umno is no longer fooled. They have had enough of Din and his political pariahs. Umno wants out of the back door government. Umno wants out of PN. Umno wants a general election and this will be affirmed when the Umno Supreme Council meets today! Really? Umno can do this? Umno will not be fooled by Din again?
What has Din and his political pariah done so far to fool Umno?
First, there was that “EMERGENCY ruse! Desperate Din does desperate deeds. He goes down to Pekan to have an audience with the King to plead his case for an Emergency. For with an emergency he can delay, delay, delay many things…even an election. But instead of falling for Din’s desperate, dumb and dubious deed of doing the dirty on Umno by agreeing to Din’s design to declare an Emergency, our King and his brother Rulers debated and decided to deny Din his desperate plea for an Emergency. So DIn was done for in that desperate gambit when he tried to deceive our King that the Emergency was needed.
Then there was the budget debacle. All sorts of things were promised by Din to Najib and Zahid if they would help Din to pass the Budget. A get out of jail free card for Zahid Hamidi and an appointment as DPM in the back door government? Done! A pardon for that Kepit Man? Done. Senior, meaningful ministerial positions for Umno in Din’s cabinet? Done! Desperate Din agreed to anything that Umno wanted in order for Umno to allow passage of the budget. After the budget was passed, again zilch! Budget sudah pass ma why should Din give Umno what he had promised to give them? Again egg on the face of Najib and Zahid while Din and his political pariahs live for another day.
Now maybe Umno understands that all this while, Din has played them like a violin. That all the bananas that Din has been dangling in front of those Umno monkeys are simply mirages. So near and yet so far away. Maybe now Umno will finally get it that Din has been playing them for fools. And so will tonight’s Umno Supreme Council meeting put the final screw in Desperate Din’s political coffin?
I think not!
What, you may ask me, has Desperate Din still have up his sleeves?
COVID 19 ma! What if the pandemic takes a turn for the worse? What if despite all the CMO and the availability of the vaccines, what if, despite everything, the pandemic gets worse and worse and worse? How do we know the pandemic is getting worse? They say that figures do not lie. What if the numbers of Malaysian infected by COVID 19 keep rising from the present 2000 infected daily to 4000 Malaysian infected daily and more? What if the death rate keeps rising too. Surely common sense tells us all that there can be no election when the situation is so dire and desperate? So desperate that Desperate Din can, in the name of saving our nation and our people from the worsening pandemic, declares that pandemic must first be under control before anything so potentially catastrophic, like a general election, can be allowed to be held. Kan?
And how long should the election be postponed? One month, one year…maybe not until the time the next election is due? Maybe forever? And so no election because of the COVID 19 pandemic is the right to do kan? And why not? Because the figures do not lie.
Sure statistics do not lie but surely you have heard of the phrase “Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics?”
Consider this. How are the COVID 19 statistics being tabulated? The daily rate of infection and other Covid19 statistics are all being sent first to KKM (Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia). Yes Sir the same KKM where this political pariah, Dr. Adham Baba, is the Minister. Yep the same guy who insists that “Warm Water” cures COVID19. Remember?
Only then are the statistics released to the Director-General of Health, Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah for our consumption. For sure the good Director-General of Health has not been asked to fake the Covid19 statistics. No need for Dr. Noor Hisham to do so lah. Already done by Adham Baba ma!
So my friends just watch those daily infection figures and death rates figures rise in the coming weeks and months. Water seeks its own level. COVID19 statistics will rise to the level that Din and his political pariahs would want it to rise. With or without the “assits” of our DG of Health, Dr Noor Hashim. And it will rise to the level when Din and his political pariahs can, in good faith and for the benefit of all Malaysian (so he says!), declare a pandemic health emergency and postpone any general election kini dan maybe, selama lama nya!
Once again Umno has been the victim of its own folly. First for having sokong Din and his political pariahs in their Langkah Sheraton gambit. Then for having given Din another life line by allowing the Budget to pass. And, for time after time, again and again, for believing that Din will share the spoils of his political ill-gotten gains with Umno. Let us see what the Umno Supreme Council will decide today. I would not be at all surprised if Umno comes out with a resolution declaring that “in the interest of the Malays, Islam, King and country”, Umno will negotiate a “win win” solution with Din and his political pariahs (which includes those Towel Heads from PAS).
And for sure Din will sit down and negotiate with Umno…the devil will be in the interpretation of what a “win-win solution” will be to Umno and what it will be to Din. Enough said!
