No matter how Umno tries to contort itself to fit the picture, it does not represent the majority Malays, who had voted against it and BN.
More Malays had voted against Umno than had voted for it.
According to prominent blogger Sakmomgkol, an estimated 3.6 million Malays had voted against Umno as against Umno's 3 million.
So, Umno cannot even claim that it represents the majority Malays, let alone the Malaysian majority.
It would serve Umno well to stop playing mind games with itself by blaming the Chinese for its predicament.
It would serve Umno well not to tell Malaysians (including the 3.6 million Malays who had voted for the opposition) who are not happy with the outcome of GE13 to just leave the country.
The country does not belong to Umno or Zahid Hamidi It belongs to all Malaysians, irrespective of their race.
That is the greatest mistake of Umno - to assume that the country belongs to them.
Umno's old politics of race, patronage, arrogance, slogan-mongering - "Kepimpinan Melalui Teladan" ("Leadership By Example") haha; "Cekap, Bersih Dan Amanah" ("Clean, Efficient And Trustworthy") ROFL and "1Malaysia" stillborn and et al is passe and putrid.
The new politics of inclusion, responsibility and accountability is the order of the day.
If Umno does not reform itself, it will soon limp like MCA or become near extinct like Gerakan. (Which might be better for all really)
Or need massive cheating, further constituency gerrymandering and foreigenrs? to survive.
