God’s the chosen one” Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, hounded by scandal and facing open rebellion within his ranks, made an impassioned plea at his party’s general assembly last week for unity and support. He demanded loyalty and obedience from all. He invoked God, race and country to justify his leadership.
It’s all about self-preservation, self-interest and self-enrichment Najib without vision, without principle, without a clear moral compass. He no longer cares to govern by the rules of parliamentary democracy. It is no longer interested in forging genuine national unity. And it is no longer competent to be entrusted with the management of our economy. the yearning of every human being for liberty and justice which people throughout history have fought and died to gain and keep, suddenly becomes a sinister and dangerous thing that needs to be eradicated like the plague.
UMNO has plummeted to unimaginable depths. Its decimation calls for an explanation beyond the ineptitude of Najib and his rootless mentor Rosmah. its glaring ineptitude and unbridled corruption has made it one of the most despised regimes ever. Seldom before in history has a worse bunch of people come together to run the affairs of this nation with such roaring incompetence. Yet management of the coalition is nothing short of brilliant. It manages to stay in power despite all scams, scandals, stolen billions. But in the process,UMNO has missed its best opportunities. Its image lies in tatters. The scene’s so bad that for a while it One would have thought, for example, that at such a crucial time in our nation’s history – when our nation is beset with scandal, corruption and chicanery in high places, when our national institutions have been hollowed out, when corruption and mismanagement is rampant, when our constitutional rights are under threat, when racial and religious extremism is growing, when our citizens are increasingly hard-pressed to make ends meet – that the governing party would be seized by high policy issues and anxious to restore confidence and hope to a beleaguered nation.
