|Quiet anger of UiTM graduates
I wasn't the least surprised by Tengku Adnan Mansor's stupid remarks; this is the sort of rubbish one spews when one is brain dead and long past his expiry date. Read my older posting Tengku Nan's dead to understand where I'm coming from. That was a decade ago and he has not learned anything!
People are not angry with Umno; they have been angry with some politicians in Umno. Some of the politicians they were angry with have been sacked and some recently left the party to form other parties in the hope of regaining power. But there are the likes of Ku Nan still around and still holding significant positions in government since then (when Dr Mahathir Mohamad took them, including Ku Nan, in) till Pak Lah's time and now with Najib Razak as PM.
Even if he hadn't run down the 720,000 graduates that ITM/UiTM has churned out (and the 165,000 students currently chasing their papers in over 30 campuses throughout the country), Ku Nan was already that rotten apple in Umno. Residents from Datuk Keramat to Taman Tun Dr Ismail have been up in arms against his "projects" over the last couple of years. A week or so ago he finally felt he'd better meet the residents of TTDI who are fighting to save their Rimba Kiara but his address, to no one's surprise, did not go down so well (The day Ku Nan allegedly Lied to TTDI residents - The Mole, Nov 26).
Before the end of the day, Ku Nan will tell the UiTM grads and students that he didn't mean what he said about the "slow learner" bit, that he'd been taken out of context, and blah, blah, blah. That's not important, especially when dealing with a repeat offender. What's important is the future. Ku Nan is obviously keen on contesting in the coming GE and at this point, in my humble slow-learner opinion, he is Umno's least winnable candidate. He's that bad apple that will spoil the whole bunch. - Nov 26 2017, Puchong
