Cutting out the gangrene
"Dr. Mahathir also called on Umno members to join him in this radical move, which he likened to "removing gangrene" in order for the party to survive."
Actually, this mention of gangrene appears at least twice in that story.
Likened to removing gangrene? Good one Mahathir! But why would you refer to yourself as gangrene? And then some more go and call on other gangrenous flers to be removed as well. Aiyoh!!! And as we all know gangrenous parts cannot be removed by the patient or should not be. The patient needs a surgeon to cut the life-threatening parts off. Oh by the way, isn't the leader of the other side of the House a doctor ah? Maybe can ask her and her team to help?
Oh...come to think of it when all the gangrenous parts are removed from this Umno body and with those Pakatan flers not really gaining anyone's confidence fast good old Pak Lah may just be laughing all the way to Putrajaya. Again.
Sorry la. I wrote that rant at the breakfast table. At that time of the morning I thought it was funny. You?
Okay la on a slightly more serious note. Mahathir supposedly also said one of his reasons for quitting the party is "......because Umno now is no longer the Umno that was set up 62 years ago to fight for Malay rights, Islam and Malaysia" (Malaya then). So? He's probably right. It isn't anymore. Because it is 62 years later and Malaysians, ALL Malaysians have matured in thinking. Malaysians want a Malaysian Malaysia while recognising and protecting the special needs and rights of certain communities without compromising or infringing upon the rights of other citizens. Sharing what the country has to offer diligent citizens. Building and progressing as one nation one PEOPLE. What's wrong with that?
