Abdullah men's attemtps to explain to the grassroots about the spat between the PM and Dr M are getting more challenging, and that's putting it mildly.
At the latest meeting, according to Cuit Sikit!, the Umno Wilayah Persekutuan members turned the tables on five of Abdullah's holiest messengers with questions that they were hard pressed to answer.
Eg: "What is so great about Brendan Pereira and Kalimullah that they are free to split Umno?"
The members asked about the Government's flip-flop on the scenic bridge (one asked of the Attorney-General's actual position on the matter), but they also wanted answers to burning questions about ECM Libra-Avenue Capital's merger and the role played by Abdullah's son-in-law, who is a key shareholder; the Approved Permits issue; and why their quality of life is deteriorating.
At the receiving end were Khalid Nordin, Mustapha Mohamad dan Shahrir Samad and two Umno council members Azim Zabidi and Norza Zakaria.
Earlier this month, Syed Hamid and Zahid Hamidi were said to have been red-faced but in sessions far less hostile than yesterday's.
An observer called this blogger to express his fears that if the trend continues, some irked leaders among the grassroots may be throwing tables at the messengers.
