Umno Election 2013: The Late Bloomer (Is Shafie Apdal Safe Part 2?)


Updated: Mukhriz has no choice but to go for VP, says Zam in "Magnetic" Khairy Jambatan ke Perdana Menteri 
MM: "I'm still in two minds about (going for VP)". Read the interview here





















Original article 
MuM4VP? Mukhriz Mahathir is a late bloomer in Umno not by chance and not even by design, but by the sheer will of an unrelenting father. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would not allow his children to hold key positions in the party so long as he was the party president ... and he was party president for many, many years. By the time Dr M stepped down as Prime Minister and Umno president in 2003, Mukhriz was already 39, too old to be in the Umno Youth, too green to be among the seniors. By the time he contested for the Umno Youth chief post in the 2009 party elections, he was already 45. By comparison, Khairy Jamaluddin was just 33 in 2009 and had won the Deputy Chief of Umno Youth's post uncontested in 2006, when father-in-law Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was PM and Umno president. 
How you start, early or late, does not decide the finish, not in Umno. Today Mukhriz is the chief minister of Kedah and a real contender for one of the three Vice President posts in Umno. With talks that Ali Rustam, Isa Samad and Musa Aman are all pulling out of the VP race and the President, Deputy President and Wanita chief posts probably seeing no contests, Mukhriz's move on the vice presidency of the party is being closely watched by millions of Umno members and Malaysians.  
And, not least, by the three incumbent VPs. Recently, Shafie Apdal was quoted as saying that he, Zahid Hamidi and Hishammuddin Hussein team up like "a sleek football team" but unless he's talking about bringing back the dreary days of Anwar Ibrahim-led Wawasan Team, Shafie - or for that matter his two sleek team mates - would do well to prepare for the worst. 
Mukhriz should be making an announcement on his candidacy before Friday prayers this week.

Datuk,

Some incorrect points in your posting

KJ manipulated his way to get ascended as UMNO Youth Deputy Chief in Aug 2004, uncontested. He was only 28 then.

Then, KJ and his minions in UMNO Youth simply announced thru media that Exco Kedah Govt Dato Azimi Daim (who has expressed his intention to run for UMNO Youth Deputy CHief post), without Azimi's consent.

Azimi at that time promised then UMNO Deputy President Mohd. Najib Tun Razak to wait before his return from a trip to Europe and consult him first, before making a decision to contest or not.

Well, better late than never. His father was an Umno member for eleven or twelve years before getting a chance to contest for a parliamentary seat. That wasn't really an achievement and far too long for an aspiring and budding politician. After a promising start, his political career almost finished abruptly 5 years later before experiencing revival. After that, it is pretty much a walk in the park.
Politicians are like butterflies in the wind. Some fly higher than the others. Some fly lower but all of them flying the best they can.

'Tis a bittersweet day.

Sweet as today lauded the death of a Chingk pig whose abiding legacy would be his murderous Malay ethnic cleansing rampage all for the purpose of establishing Chingk supremacist hegemony over Tanah melayu. Long May he rot forever in Hell.

'Tis is a bitter day

Bitter as the day lamented the continued existence of a filthy,mothballed, maggot infested Chingk carcass in Singapork. This bastard anti-Malay scumbag still lingers near death's door awaiting the Grim Reaper's scythe and for his Maker to cast his soul into Hell. The fuckedup arsehole loser whose daydreams of Chingk supremacist grandeur lie in ashes must be gnashing whatever teeth in his putrid mouth and cursing at the sight of a progressive and stable MALAYSia. The very same MALAYSia he so desperately wanted to fail......hahaahahahaha

Is this UMNO way of democracy. All top post must not be contested only bottom ones? Is this the aspiration of UMNO real members? Why are this top people so scared of a contest. Why Najib, Muhyidin and VPs insist of Non contest. If they did a good job and being challenge they definitely will win, but did they really do a good job? Again, GE14 a Talkin untuk UMNO and money do talk.

"Chingk carcass in Singapork" is envying Malaysia?

Keep dreaming, mate.

They are leaps and bounds ahead, all created from nothing. We have squandered all our potential for the sake of lining corrupt pockets.

Truth hurts.

Get over it.

Go fuck your mother and after fucking the whore stuff your filthy cj stained cock down her throat and stick a jack up her arse, son of a pimped fucked bitch!

Lee Kuan Yew continuous prattle about Malaysia in all his garbagey books is proof enough of his loser mentality. He still can't get over being told to fuck off and rule his British created second richest country in Asia all on his own and shove his Malaysian Malaysia rubbish up his unwashed arse.

Created from nothing eh? Rape your father's arse, lanchiau sucker! If your garbage is true, then there wasnt any Raffles, Union Jack or port in Singapore. Whom are you kidding, shameless cuntlouse liar? The old pimp and his whore in your household, son of a piece of shit!

And don't ever think Lanchiau chibai Lee created Singapork. He was nothing more than a pariah:

But then an arsefucking Chingk pig is always an ingrate
So dream on in your delusion, loser!

Love your pic of Mukhriz, shows him like the Indian Muslim that his father is.
After all the lies and twisted logic of his father are we Malays going to put our faith in his son?

People ass u me that the son of Hussein Onn is as clever as his dad. That the son of Razak is as good as his dad. And the son of not good Mohamed Rahmat or Sanusi or other first generation UMNO leaders will be as good without justification or empirical proof.

But believe me the son of the son of the Indian from Kerala will be just as twisted as his dad haha..

Malays need Malays to lead UMNO And by collective bloggers or NGO if necessary. We have seen successive UMNO Presidents with the Uncle Lim, Uncle Vincent, Francis, Tony, etc.

Sudah tiba kita buang kan feudalisma. Lebih ramai kepala lebih bagus. Itu dipanggil musyawarah...
