Most Powerful Breakfast In Malaysia
Here is some other interesting news. The former 4th floor guys are sniffing around the back alley again. Omar Ong is already the PMB (Prime Minister’s Brains). Khairy Jamaludin is in the Cabinet. The other ex-fourth floor boys are strategically sprinkled out here and there. In UMNO the PM’s team now consists of Jamaludin Jarjis, Khairy Jamaludin, Zahid Hamidi plus the ex-4th floor boys.
That maybe so but now there is a probability that Zahid Hamidi may challenge Muhyiddin’s spot. And Najib, JJ and Khairy will back him up. If so it is very possible that Zahid Hamidi will unseat Muhyiddin and become the deputy president of UMNO as well as deputy PM. If that happens of course it will be the end of Muhyiddin’s career. This will also secure Najib’s hold on the party.
Muhyiddin must realise that standing still is not a good option. Others may target your ‘standing still’ position.
The consensus view is that Ali Rustam from Malacca has plenty grass roots support in UMNO. The money is on Ali Rustam if he goes for the Deputy President’s post as well. Or even for the party president’s position. Which is why the guys at the top now are trying to kill him off every chance they get.
By the way, Ali Rustam’s loss in Malacca recently is also due to internal sabotage from within UMNO. As I said, the knives are out to finish him off. It looks like this coming party election is make or break for Muhyiddin Yassin and Ali Rustam. It may be the end of their careers.
Anwar is a dead issue. His career and influence are over. PAS and DAP dont see much use for him anymore. Like tissue paper (or toilet paper) – to be thrown away after use. Reading some of the inuendos about his health, this may also be literally true.
The lawyers, financial “con”-sultans, the stationery suppliers, the advertising boys all made tons of money from that exercise. Still no one really knows why Sime, Guthrie and Golden Hope were merged.
Losing Felda & PRU 14
Here is some arithmetic. UMNO now has 88 Parliamentary seats. 15 of these seats come from UMNO Sabah. The rest ie 73 seats rest in the Peninsula. Of these 73 UMNO seats in the Peninsula, 54 UMNO seats lie in Felda settlements. Only 19 UMNO seats come from other non-Felda and non Sabah areas. In other words UMNO now depends on the poor Sabahans and the ‘peneroka Felda’ folks. As someone said ‘The people who read Utusan Malaysia’ (no offense meant bro. Z.)
If you merge Felda with Sime Darby and if things dont go as planned, UMNO may lose some Felda seats as well. Better watch out.
The “ad” mystery and the TPPA mystery
There is another mystery. Malaysia is set to agree to the TPPA with the US. TPPA means Trans Pacific Partnesrhip Agreement. This is a really stupid, really, really dumb agreement which kebanyakan orang Melayu tak faham apa maksud sebenar dan bahaya perjanjian ini. I will blog about this soon.
This is the only contemporary issue now in Malaysia where people on both sides of politics fully agree to oppose. Dr Mahathir, OutSyed The Box, the Consumers Associations, the NGOs, the Pakatan Rakyat and just about everyone DOES NOT agree with Malaysia wanting to sign the TPPA with America.
So I have been asking around – please tell me who in their right mind would want Malaysia to sign this agreement in the first place? One answer is this woman. She is Rebecca Sta Maria the KSU of the Ministry of International Trade who is tasked with negotiating this agreement. Bad, bad move Rebecca. Very, very bad move.
The other woman who was mentioned is of course this person :
Apparently the Obamas are coming to visit in October this year. One of the conditions of their visit is that Malaysia agree to the TPPA. A few people, including you know who, are craving for an opportunity to have their pictures taken with the First Lady. Today the mystery was resolved a little bit more. The other person who is pushing hard for Malaysia to sign the TPPA is this guy :
He is presently ambassador to the US with Cabinet rank and is in the inner circle of the Prime Minister. If the TPPA is signed his status will be raised up a little in Washington as well as in KL (among the few).
So these are the three or maybe four people in Malaysia who want the TPPA. Most of the other 28 million Malaysians are not in favour of the TPPA. Folks, guess who will prevail? 28 million Malaysians or these few people?
Barisan Nasional to be unwound
That would be this guy Omar Ong a muallaf brother who comes out with strange ideas. 1 Malaysia, BR1M, KR1M etc. Even that rebranding thing ‘I love PM’ goes back to him as well (despite what others say).
His official designation is “PMB” or “Prime Minister’s Brains“. So he is the ‘PMB in the PMO‘. You can see what the Prime Minister has become by following his advice. Just imagine what the PM would be without the PMB?
UMNO will go it alone. UMNO will however take in non-Malays as members. UMNO will become multi racial. Non Malays in UMNO may have conditional membership – like no voting rights. Folks is this a good idea?
Let me ask a question to the Chinese readers – given a choice will you join UMNO at all? And will you be willing to become a non voting member of UMNO? (No need to shout lah – I can hear you loud and clear ok).
By listening to these same stupid advisors the prime minister almost lost the elections. The BN is now down to 133 seats. Even sleepy Badawi did better. And now the PM is at the least popular point in his career. It is unlikely that he will ever recover.
And the PM still falls back on the same advisors and ‘con’-sultans. Plus Dracula has now been appointed not only in charge of the Bloodbank but also in charge of the blood donors.
How low can we go? Just when you thought that they had hit the bottom of the pit, they dig another hole and sink down even further.
