String Theory Umno Umno General Assembly: Will Najib Still Be Umno President?

Proponents of the Malaysian string theory postulate that nothing happens in the Umno universe that does not beat to the vibrations of the M string in a complicated Calabi-Yau conundrum (manifolds to the scientists lah!)

However, the M string here is no string and even less a membrane. It is the manna that even Mahathir himself once tearfully lamented the evil use of to buy positions.

Not that everyone bought into the tearful path. The more cynical ones thought the lamentations were more crocodile in nature than tearful.

However, whichever your perception, as the much postponed Umno General Assembly finally draws near again where party positions are up for consideration, Umno scientists may want to revisit strings and membranes and maybe also all the possible 11 dimensions to strategise their clients' orbit in the Umno multidimensional universe.

This time, the Calabi-Lau manifolds may pose a greater Alice in Wonderland challenge than ever before.

It is post general election time.

And post general election time is not the best of times for the incumbent head of the Umno universe for his position to be up for consideration, especially not if he had done less than a stellar job at the general election.

And Ah Jib Gor had not done a stellar job. The coalition he led in the 13th general election failed to win the popular vote for, if I am not mistaken, the first time in their history.

Najib knows that his head is up to be stringed or is it strung?. How far he would take this lying down, your bet is as good as any.

Conventional punditry is for Mahathir to push for Muhyiddin to take over the Umno presidency and warm the seat for his own son.

But Mukriz has thrown a spanner into the works by declaring that he would stand by Pm's side and support the call for no contest for the top two positions in Umno.

So, has there be a realignment of the dimensions, Calabi-Lau or not.

If so, where does that leave an understandably impatient, probably-the-last-chance-for-you Muhyiddin? A tie up with the man who suddenly discovered that Malaysia belonged to his grandfather, as some have speculated?

How much of a chance do they stand to wrest the Umno leadership without strongman Ah Ma's support?

Or was Mukriz's declaration a red herring, the better to prepare the bait for the killing?

I am not holding my breath for what is coming.

For whatever happens, Umno, to me, is a fossilised dinosaur incapable of change and will be more of the same old same old, or worse, whether someone else takes over the leadership or Najib manages to hang on.

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
