Going for two third?


My old friend from Melaka called this morning. About same age and an old hand in UMNO politics.

So we asked what his thought of Dato Najib's speech yesterday. His comment was many of the points are recycled.

In other words, Najib is not sending out new messages but reminding the delegates the course taken and he is steadfast to the journey of reform he has taken. 

Everyone knows this is the last UMNO General Assembly before general election and the gathering today is about uniting the party and drumming up the election drum.

Joceline Tan in The Star here this morning gave a confident picture of UMNO.

Apparently a friend who attended a certain high level meeting last night got the message UMNO support for Najib is now overwhelming.

Mahathir's attack and antics only strengthened the party..

Ambiga's brother representing Puncak Niaga?


The political intrigue of the Puncak Niaga lawsuit continues.

The lawyer representing Puncak Niaga turns out to be the firm of Sreenevasan Young, in which Gopal Sreenevasan is the brother to Ambiga. The lawsuit have been given a political twist by UMNO propagandist to showcase something negative on Azmin's administration.

It come at a rather odd time when Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim have came out in the open in support of BN in Selangor. It makes Selangor more fluid as PAS used to oppose the sacking of Khalid.

It gets more interesting because Azmin's lawyer is from the firm of Daim and Gamany in which they were exposed as representing Selangor government in the controversy on the alleged Ijok land scam involving LCBN and the one currently being developed by Eco World and EOF.

Whose the "Penyangak, Pencuri, Penyamun & Perompak" now?


Tun Dr Mahathir goes around the country calling Dato Najib as "penyangak, pencuri, penyamun & perompak" at political rallies.

Some claim he has turned senile or suffering from dimentia for repeating the same allegations and name calling. Having followed him for many years, he merely took a page from the manual of Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebell to repeat a lie till the public believe.

True enough, senility may have creeped up on him as his name calling has gone overboard. It backfired on the son of an immigrant Kerala Kutty to call Najib as Bugis lanun and send him back to Bugis land.

It not only angered the Bugis descendents but the royalties and Indonesian politicians.

Mahathir hope it would go away since he stereotyped "Melayu mudah lupa". It did not and recently Sultan Johor described him as racist and a former Indonesian Minister called him an ill mannered old man.

There is a trend in Mahathir's name calling antics.  It is actually reverse psychology at work to cover-up his own and same wrongdoings. It is he who is the "penyangak, pencuri, penyamun & perompak".

By labelling Najib, he hope to divert attention from his own wrongdoings.

Political intrigues behind Puncak Niaga's lawsuit


The Selangor water crisis continue with a new twist as Puncak Niaga Holdings Berhad sued the Selangor state government, current Menteri Besar, Dato Seri Azmin Ali and previous Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

Puncak's basis for the lawsuit is the loss of income for the crisis that resulted in the federal government takeover of the water asset, which is subsequently sold to the state.

Legally speaking, since the on-going consolidation of the water assets started during Khalid's administration, it is only expected that the lawsuits against the state will include second and third parties related to the deal.

However, the political question is why the lawsuit was brought against both the loggerhead current and former MBs from PKR together?
