Do you trust anybody?....and problems solved?

If most of the BN component parties are drenched and soaked with nebulous and indefinable internal problems, what would be the natural consequent that follows?

This is the question that many people are asking and so far there is no sign of improvement but instead they are facing more compounding tribulations.

There have been intense polemics on various issues in the cyber sphere and in other forms of media but none so far has succeeded in getting to identify the actual problems faced by each and individual party.

Every member of every party feels the problems but no one really knows what is troubling them. We must appreciate the fact that we have to understand the problems to the fullest first even before thinking of solving it.

This has been the problem that our UMNO leadership has failed to detect and to mend the rift in the party at all levels. Everyone is interested to see the party getting stronger to face the mountable issues faced by the country in this modern era.

The leaderships have been doing all they can to address hanging issues surrounding the Malays and UMNO as well as issues relating to our friends from other races and their political parties.

BUT they don’t understand which of the many issues is in urgent need to be solved first. Is it the leaders themselves that make the party like UMNO in shamble?

If that is the case then the subject is the crisis of confidence of the leaders and let democracy works on a truly even playing field for the members to choose which leader or group of leaders they are comfortable with.

That was the actual reason why democracy came into being; that is to choose which leader they think best to lead and which leader they want to put aside in retirement.

BUT the actual working of democracy have been squarely prostituted by elements of suppression by the power house and the media as well as the system of administration that make democracy apprehensively impossible to work within its legitimate frame work.

This is evidently happening in UMNO, MIC and the PBB of Sarawak when democracy is guided by the current ruling leaders with all the might of the executive provisions with them.

Just take the issue that MIC is plaguing with at the moment. For all intent and purposes Samy Velu should have already planned for an Emergency General Assembly of MIC to legitimized his position in the party.

If the delegates choose to preserve him in the EGM then it would stabilized his leadership as he is endorsed by a special meeting of its delegates from all over.

If the EGM decides to oust him than there would be a new leader to replace him with the endorsement of the delegates and that new leader will be the new hope for MIC and there will be a long period of unruffled MIC until such time when the successor decides to stay too long like his predecessor Samy did.

The issue now is not who has stronger and bigger muscle to wrest. It is whether we are prepared to do the right thing to the party even to the extent of relinquishing all positions and our pips on our shoulders. This is what we called as SACRIFICE which many leaders of these days dread to do.

Every component leader does not take legitimacy as of profound and prime importance in any leadership of organization with democratic zest and keenness like all our political parties in this country.

In my last posting, I concluded my article by asking, ‘is any one who can tell every one which party in BN component is not in difficulty?’

Nobody could give me one, as UMNO itself as the trunk of BN has huge and colossal problems plaguing the party.

The party’s enormous number of branches are not functioning like those of yester years and their members are hopelessly apathetic as the branches activities are almost unheard of.

The branches annual general meetings are more often than not are held without enough quorum and the young members are not interested in UMNO activities.

SO how do we expect the party to be strong as the members are not keen even to attend the branches annual general meeting?

The Divisional Heads are not able to move their branches to organize political activities as the branches heads are too parasitic on the Divisional Heads for money and other kinds of monetary assistances. If there is no money provided there will be no activity.

The sense of volunteering has long been spent and disappeared as the soul of the party’s struggles is already in the cavity.

I was told that even Najib has to push the branches in his Pekan Division with money in order to get the Division to complete all the branches annual general meetings for this year, and that has been the practice for donkey years.

Most of the Divisional Head are not leaders as they paid the branches delegates in the Division Annual General meetings to be the heads.

Their good leaders are booted out by money and political corruption by the eager businessmen and corporate names who attend the annual meeting once a year just to secure positions as the branches and Divisions' chiefs.

This is practiced at all level of the party. This deadly habit is now obviously out of control as it is also done in recent by-elections where mojavascript:void(0)ney was seen as the only mean for UMNO and BN to secure support from the voters.

Can we survive with this conduct and manner of politics? Can we? Even if we can survive for another decade, the question is where do we source the money from?

Can we blame anybody if they allege us that the gambling football license is the source of that needed fund to pay the votes? After all Vincent Tan is known to the public that he is very involved with UMNO for the sake of his gigantic business empire.

In fact I was made to believe and I believe it, that Vincent Tan knows more about UMNO than we members do. He has a very friendly connection in the Supreme Council especially in the UMNO HQ secretariat.

So how do we solve the problems which I mentioned in the preamble of this article? Can we trust everybody to find out the details of what I have just mentioned?

Give an honest answer to yourself.

Thanks……………………………………….Aspan Alias

In all humility and honesty bro, we should think of new politics. The existing one is already going to be defunct.

Jamalkhir said...


I too have been thinking that there is a need for a new politics.
This blog used to mention few times of starting the nation anew.

Who is going to do this? It cannot be done by the current lineup.

I pnly see 2 leaders who cn do this; Tengku Razaleigh and Dr Mahathir.

But what is new to the new politics?

I must say it is well thought suggestion but I am still in the dark how can that to happen.

Salam Sdr Aspan,

Itulah apa yg sebenarnya berlaku diperingkat cawangan-cawangan dan bahagian-bahagian UMNO diseluruh negeri yg saya berada sekarang.Saya mengtahui keadaan semacam ini wujud melalui pegamatan secara peribadi dan juga maklumat diterima dari rakan-rakan seperjuangan.

Keadaan amat mengcewa dan mendukacitakan.Semangat perjuangan sudah malap dan hampir pupus;semangat setiakawan dan kekitaan sudah terhapus dan apa yg ada hanya kesetiaan kepada kelumpok-kelumpok kecil dan puak-puak yg bertelagah dan mencurigai antara satu sama lain;kesan kepimpinan yg sepatutnya memberi panduan,halatuju dan dorongan langsong tidak terasa secara berkesan-tidak terasa adanya"coheisivness and solidirity".Roh dan semangat UMNO diperingat akar umbi kini seakan-akan sudah hilang.Apa yg ada hanya jasad yg hampir lumpuh.

Sebenarnya keadaan sudah terlalu tenat.Para pemimpin UMNO yg ada sekarang,dengan sikap dan komitmen yg ditunjukkan sekarang, tidak terdaya dan mampu membuat perubahan,pemulihan dan pembaikan kepada UMNO yg sewajarnya.Bagi mereka ubat yg palig mujarab hanyalah wang dan wanglah yg amat diminati dibawah sana.Mereka tidak menyedari bahawa wang itulah yg akan menjadi pembunuh mereka sebagaimana gula membunuh pesakit kencing manis jika diberi gula berterusan.

Persoalan sekarang ialah apa pilihan yg da pada kita untuk menjaminkan kesinambongan warisan dan kesajahteraan bangsa dan negara kita untuk masa kini dan akan datang.Untuk mengharapkan parti PAS dan PKR barangkali agak mustahil kerana roh dan jiwa mereka sudah terjual kepada dajal laknatullah DAP yg berikrar menentang Islam dan ketuanan Melayu.

Jawapannya barang kali ada pada Saudara Jamali.Apa yg diperlukan ialah keberanian,kecekalan dan semangat yg kental untuk mengorak langkah pertama.Ingatlah kepada kata-kata pujanga,"Perjalanan yg jauh beribu batu bermula dengan langkah pertama".Kini umpama perahu sudah di air dan dayung dah ditangan dan arah tuju sudah ditetapkan,ayuh apa lagi nak di tunggu,marilah kita berdayung sekarang.

Kalau UMNO tak boleh diharap...undilah PAS dan PKR serta Pakatan Rakyat.

Rakyat akan jadi penentu nantinya..kalau prestasi mereka sama kita tukar lain.

Berubahlah kepada yang lebih baik.

Let us put all our Jaguh Kampung Politicians, Cronies, etc aside for now & Look at the "Time Proven Best Practices Benchmark"

Malaysia lost their once "Great Malaysian Sons" who could have given Malaysia their all, to make Malaysia a great nation....

Thanks to people like the late Syed Jaafar Albar & Syed Nasir, who first created the rift & bikerings that caused Tengku to expell Singapore....LKY was shocked & he cried! http://www.google.com.my/search?q=Syed+Jaafar+responsible+with+the+Malaysia+Singapore+split...&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-
"...Later, he had participated in verbal duels with the charismatic Singaporean Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, over the issue of ketuanan Melayu (Malay sovereignty over Malaysia).
Lee accused Albar of being an "ultra" for making remarks such as "Wherever I am, I am a Malay." Lee excoriated him for this, asking "If I had been going round and saying what [he] has been saying — wherever I am, I am a Chinese — where would we be? But I keep on reminding the people that I am a Malaysian. I am learning Bahasa Kebangsaan (Malay, the national language) and I accept Article 153 of the Constitution."[6]
Albar also accused Lee and some other Chinese Malaysians — referring to them as kaum pendatang or pendatang asing (immigrants) — of being lodgers (orang tumpangan), abusing the hospitality of the Malays who were the "masters of the house".
This provoked a response from Cabinet member Lim Swee Aun, who insisted "we are co-owners, not lodgers, not guests."[7][8] Unquote.

LKY cried & made the resolve - Singapore will Survive! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41ND3U_9HgQ&feature=related

LKY had all the "Once Malaysian Brains" to create "what Malaysia could have been"....Singapore as it is today....in 45 years!

Compared to what the UMNO/BN has done in that 45 years, to "Abuse, Corrupt & Destroy" this once great nation... to be what it is now!

A Tribute to Dr Goh Keng Swee Pt6/6 [Ch5 English] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPRwCI2nlwc&feature=related

Goh, a Peranakan who was born in Malacca on Oct 6, 1918, retired as deputy prime minister in December 1984 due to personal reasons.

The "economic architect" of Singapore contributed greatly to shaping the country into a prosperous nation as the first finance minister in 1959 and later as the defence minister of an independent Singapore. Goh was the son of a rich family in Malacca. His father, Goh Leng Inn, was a manager of a rubber plantation. His mother hailed from the family that produced famous Malaysian politicians Tun Tan Cheng Lock and his son, Tun Tan Siew Sin. - Bernama

Salam Saudara Aspan

Salah memaki DAP dajal dan meminta ia dilaknatuLah tu!

Tidakkah Askar Tua mengetahui Ketuanan Melayu dan Ketuanan Islam telah dirosakkan oleh Melayu UMNO.

Ditinggalkan hanya Malu yang amat sangat dari polisi dan tingkah laku tidak adil dan corruption khusus perangai orang Melayu dalam pemerintahan yang dikatakan berugama Islam

Percayalah Allah amat lebeh mengetahui dan siapa kini telah ditarik hidayah dan taufiqNya dan siapa dia Dajjal LaknatuLah!

Tak jelas lagikah kepada Askar Tua mereka yang menzalimi diri sendiri dengar kemunafiqan dan kekafiran serta pengikut dan mana-mana ulamak pak turut akan terjeremus kejahanam?
