A timely rebuke to Umno for its arrogance, corruption and shrill racist rhetoric

 

What happened on March 8 was merely a very timely rebuke to Umno for its arrogance, corruption and shrill racist rhetoric.

If Umno hopes to head off its decline, the party needs to acknowledge the limited appeal of its political language, not to mention its ham-fisted strategy and policy implementation. Perhaps the party is content surviving off support from amongst rural Malays, Sabah Muslims and the south of the peninsula?

But if Umno wishes to reclaim the west coast – the economic backbone of the nation – the high-octane and ugly promotion of Malay rights has to be jettisoned: alienating valuable vote-banks doesn’t make electoral sense.

Furthermore, the skewered execution and the preponderance of politically well-connected Malay beneficiaries have also angered the majority of urban Malays who feel that they have the requisite ‘know how’ whilst lacking the all-important ‘know who’.

A shared agenda?

Read:

Umno lacks intellectual capability, courage, energy to lead

Umno’s arrogance of power

Umno full of Yes-men and hypocrites

Umno’s formula – turn everything racial

What leadership should be, but is not in Malaysia’s politicians

Wither Malaysia, under BN ?

    UMNO is like an old carpet left outside just so that it can be stepped on by everyone. I think it is like pay back after years of greed, corrupt, arrogant, self centered, dictatorship and annoyance group. UMNO is vulnerable and can even figure out who is friends and who is the enemies amongst themselves.

    UMNO advisers are busy giving Badawi all the wrong advise so that he can destroy himself. They are doing this quietly to get rid of him without say it out right!

    UMNO will be reduced to dust very soon and that’s why they are shaking in their pants. For people who supported UMNO like previous leaders of MIC and MCA are starting to speak up against UMNO! But these people are as sinful as UMNO itself!!
