Umno Should Admit It Has Lost Malay Votes And "The Economist" Should Just Stick To Matters In Their Field

Umno as the taiko (big boss) of BeEnd (BN) should just admit that they have lost Malay votes and not blame the Chinese for their failure.

They should just be grateful (a term they like to abuse, anyway) that despite winning the minority vote, they get to form the Federal government.

Najib as the taiko of the ruling coalition, should act like a man and not try to push the blame for BeEnd's worst ever showing in a general election onto the shoulders of the Chinese.

Ah Jib as the taiko of BeEnd and also the Pm should show that he has the guts to act like a leader.

He cannot try to hide under anybody's skirt (even if that is his wife's) and at the same time claim to be the leader and Pm of all Malaysians

He should admit Umno's and BeEnd's weaknesses and essay to change instead of resorting to the age old racial card to stay in power.

Malaysians have all grown up. They are not easily manipulated anymore.

If you want to remain a 56 year old child, you are welcome to. We will keep you in the creche and you call continue to suck on your putrid pacifiers.

Remember that this is the age of the Internet

What you or the government say is no longer automatically taken as the gospel truth. They are judged by what happens on the ground. Not what comes out from the mouth but sounds like coming out from you know where.

Ah Jib as the Pm must show that he is his own man and not to be perceived or seen as subservient to or afraid of Mahathir.

One of the reasons why Umno and BeEnd are losing out and not getting the support of Malaysians (please don't twist it to mean the Chinese only) is that Najib is often perceived, if not seen, to be afraid of the former Pm.

That is why whenever and wherever Anwar declared that "Najib takut pada Mahathir, tapi abang Anwar tidak takut pada Mahathir!" ("Najib is afraid of Mahathir, but brother Anwar is not afraid of Mahathir"!) it resonated with his multiracial audience.

Of course, there are a lot of more important things that have caused Umno and BeEnd to lose the popular vote.

You Umno and BeEnd guys should do some real serious soul searching.

And it will help if you do not imagine that democracy equates to voting for you guys.

That democracy is Umno/BeEnd. And Umno/BeEnd is democracy. Tell that to the Greeks.

And all others are pretenders.

Ha ha...

It truth be told, we Malaysians would rather you guys continue to bury your heads in the sand, the better to kick your butts and send you dinosuars back to the Jurassic Age where you rightly belong.

Foreign periodicals pontificating like experts on matters Malaysian always get a chuckle out of me.

Not that I am one easily given to chuckling.

I am really quite stern, really.

No, I am not.

Just jesting.

But really, when you are not the guy who is at the end of the barrel (the wrong end, anyway), you can right afford to wave your mighty pen and pontificate like a disinterested, fair dinkum and sound learned and erudite and convincing at the same time.

What got me chuckling about this piece of erudition was the mention that Anwar's claim was "almost certainly" an exaggeration vis-a-vis the death of democracy? widespread fraud and electoral irregularities?

(Anyway, if it is "certainly", then it is certainly. If it is "almost, then it is not certainly)

Never mind. I don't want to nitpick.

Let one obviously heart broken Malaysian "My_Realist" speak, whose comment I cite

""....almost certainly an exaggeration...." 
"....Najib now owed it to Malaysians who backed the opposition to investigate the alleged fraud..."

It's NOT an exaggeration! Whereas in the URBAN areas with its large and educated population, fraud (ie vote buying, intimidation, etc) were harder to execute and can easily be found out, its in the RURAL areas where it were rampant.

Did The Economist (or even our own Malaysian NGOs) observed the campaigning among the scattered population throughout the vast tracts of land in the interior of Sarawak and Sabah? Bullying tactics were used on the mostly (almost entirely) illiterate and docile people.

Is it any wonder the two states are consider "fixed deposits"? Which independent observers went to such places (the interiors, not the towns) to check?

PKR contested in those seats. They should know but alas, who can confirm independently (as there are no independent observers)?

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...
