Mahathir vs Bagan Pinang voters
Bagan Pinang by-election is inviting foul and fire play between the MB and conspiring leaders at the Federal Level to circumvent Tan Sri Isa of his candidacy.
The views of voters are seen not at all heeded by the detested MB as he continues engaging himself with conspiracy with the deciding leaders in Kuala Lumpur.
All political analysts view Tun Dr Mahathir (TDM) as the main spokesman for this group of conspirators and this 84-year-old ex-premier went as far as attending the MB’s open house in Rantau where he expressed his displeasure for Isa’s candidacy to the media.
The excuse for his rejection for Isa’s candidacy is only on the issue of money politics which Isa was convicted by the Party which Isa had paid for it. He was suspended for 3 years from all positions including the position he held in the Government.
Among the many leaders (in fact almost all) who flouted the party rules with money politics Isa was the only one who was picked and preferred by the conspiracy group.
TDM does not care even if UMNO loses in this by-election. Many question TDM why only now that he takes moral as a criterion of a candidature.
During his time as the President of UMNO moral was not at all taken into account.
Had he had taken moral as an important prerequisite for candidature in the party; UMNO should not have been in this current heinous state of affair.
In the current Cabinet there are still a few who were in his line up whom TDM sees as corrupt and misfits to the current politics and these few are corrupt in image.
But it is fastidious to hear that TDM is starting to take moral into account. The only displeasure is that he is talking about moral only in the Bagan Pinang by-election as an expedient act to add fecundity to all dirty political play among the State UMNO leaders.
If Isa is not nominated, than the campaign line is very clear…it is contest between people of Bagan Pinang and the conspirators in NS UMNO who have TDM as their spokesperson.
Isa is always being made the scapegoat in UMNO. Everyone was involved in money politics but UMNO chose to convict Isa alone.
There is numerous number of UMNO candidates were known to be politically corrupt being made a candidate in the last few GE’s but when come to Bagan Pinang by-election, Isa is again questioned by some conspirators to expediently use the conviction on Isa in 2005 as an excuse to circumvent him from contesting.
There is another verity that one has to take into account; Mohammad Hasan has lost all regards of men and women on the street in NS. His only capability left in him that is perceived by the public is as a terrific apple polishing.
I have a tiny and minuscule opinion which some may detest; don’t put up the posters of Mohammad Hasan in the campaign as it may jeopardize BN the chance of winning a bigger majority.
He may be photogenic on the posters and buntings but he may draw away the votes which we are in dire need.
Our main goal is to win this consolation seat for BN and we are going there not to amuse any leader who in despondency and dejection. Let us amuse him some other time and in some other ways.
We must appreciate that in Bagan Pinang it is not UMNO which can bring this consolation seat; it is Isa who is going to bring in the victory for UMNO. UMNO by itself cannot bring home the point.
Do remember that a win for any candidate for BN in Bagan Pinang is by securing a majority of above 2,433. Anything less is a clear indicator of the occurrence in the PU13.
It will be fearsome. Mahathir may not be around to save Bagan Pinang then. UMNO Bagan Pinang in the end will have to solve their troubles and problems themselves.
At that material time there will be neither Mad Hasan nor Mahathir Mohammad to save the situation.
Lastly let us be conclusive that almost all UMNO candidates are not fit to be where they are now as the Party itself is perceived to be a corrupt party and that is why UMNO is speedily meandering towards total disaster.
As I have said umpteen of times, the nation political landscapes have to start anew. If we remain as we are, I am dreadful to say that it will be the end of UMNO and BN.
Mark my words. I won’t go wrong.
