National Leadership Umno Internal Affair??

"I believe not only is the public interested in such debates but people also want to know what their leaders' stands, ideas and abilities are."
Khairy said: “I just want to know the time, date and venue and I’ll come.”

Dr Khir agreed to the debate on Sunday.

“Contesting for posts in a party is an internal matter.
This is like a family contest, therefore it is not necessary to draw external attention.
“Furthermore a public debate will only undermine efforts to strengthen the party especially if the issues brought up are sensationalised by the Opposition,’’ he said.

Never mind that all of them are filthy rich - None of the personalities above are people I'd look to for leadership under any circumstance. Their spineless nature and what they have done (not done, too) in their roles thus far is good enough a reason.
That's just me, okay.
This is because I would like to see a man who can articulate his thoughts well. The mind of one I'd choose would figure a great deal in the equation of "trust".

In Umno though, it's a different story - In Umno, it's a "incestuous affair", wherein patronage carries greater weight than intellectual acumen. Even if one is a retard or the least born in a family of political bigwigs with plenty of "goodies to throw around", he's assured of the pie that mama bakes.
Even if some may deny that it hasn't already been so for the last 50 yrs, at least in the near future, we're assured of this - what more when a nominee boldly claims that he shouldn't speak in public, lest "the opposition" debates it.

Mukhriz has stated that it isn't necessary for the public - all Malaysians - to hear him speak his mind in an open debate.
According to him, the leadership is a "family matter" .... sort of like the "negotiated tender" which should come under OSA, I suppose.
Yes - that's the future of Umno's reform and leadership of the nation.
It's a "family matter" - others shouldn't get to see the soiled linen or the by-productsof this incestuous orgy (even if they know of it). A little bit of idol-worship propaganda, assisted by the servile media and membership of this club usually solves all this nuisance called perception
The citizens don't need to hear him say anything. After all he cannot afford to be thought of as a bumbling fool who says that one can be arrested under ISA for "personal protection/safety", right?

The people shouldn't know that their leaders are mongoloids, retards or a loose cannon.
Maybe all Mukhriz needs to do to show his leadership skills, is just grin and walk around in a "daddy's boy" outfit. That would be good enough for the Umno Youth to shout out "Hidup whatever!" and carry him on their shoulder as the victor in the coming "family" elections.

There is also another argument presented by some other Umno-ites - there is a danger that the delegates would choose the best orator and not the best leader!!
To those who believe this, might I suggest that they dress themselves in bedsheets like the KKK or in hoods like the "Jihadis"- after all, the delegates may elect the most well dressed, the handsome, the ugliest, fattest, baldest or whatever else!
There is a real danger of this happening too, you see ... and I dread to think what else would come out of their puny minds, to make Malaysia look worse than it already does with Hamid Albar.

At least one among the candidates knew that he needed to rearrange his face to qualify as a "youth" candidate and the other knows that he's screwed (which explains his current "liberalist" politics) .....
Maybe, if Mukhriz has it his way, they would all be silent at all times, unless handed a script by the real players.
I wonder what the grand ol' man of Umno thinks about this Umno's evolution.
Being an Umno "family affair", I guess he believes it's all going according to plan ....

Happy Diwali To all Malaysians!

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

-Robert Frost
