In Melaka today the focus is on Merlimau, its an all Malay affair, perhaps so Malay Chua Soi Lek may be persona non - Gratia.
It looks like Lim Guan Eng and Lim Kit Siang have some credibility in that area even amongst the Malays
after the Rahim Tamby Cik debacle some years ago and from some segments of constituents the who still have a good measure of respect for the Lims and DAP, but of course the "mamak kutty" Mahathir Mohammed has turned it into a nasty racial battle, claiming the PAS has betrayed the Malays, and his beloved Ketuanan Melayu concept.
The Merlimau election is proving that the 1 Malaysia concept propagated by Najib Tun Razak is nothing more then a sham. It is conducted to portray Najib as the Number 1 in the country and that is why he continues to wear that shirt with the number 1 on it, the banners of 1 Malaysia carry his face, driving the message that Najib is number 1 in this country, and in one Malaysia, the party he leads is still talking about "Ketuanan Melayu" created by a fascist ex prime minister who needs no introduction.
When one needs to see the true colours of UMNO one needs an election like Merlimau, where the stakes are with the Malay vote, watch now how UMNO bribes, watch how UMNO subtly threatens,and watch how UMNO effectively uses religion for its own purpose and then points the finger at PAS, and the fact that this soap opera continues to be the show bought by so many Malays time and time again shows how far UMNO has gone on making the Malay ignorant that his very rights are being stolen from right under his nose by UMNO.
There seems to be nothing Malaysian in Merlimau, it's all about UMNO, no 1Malaysia only 1UMNO with Najib as number 1.
The March 8th Tsunami was but a ripple to UMNO, it was the first time in many years that UMNO has had its feathers ruffled, and they are confident they can ride the wave again and come back victorious under Rosmah, .................oooops I meant Najib,( Rosmah literally wears pants, and Najib does wear a skirt every now and then, it's called a sarong).
Merlimau belongs to the BN and that is a forgone conclusion, PAS can't take it away form UMNO, so Najib is grinning from cheek to cheek, he should sack his foreign Minister and appoint Rosmah to the post, if not for Rosamh all our students in Egypt would have died, that is what he want's us all to believe.
Now Najib is thinking of making a film called "Rosmah Returns," I suppose, Rosmah has refused to act that part but alas the other person who could have played the part is dead. Remember Mona Fendy? She would have fit the role like a glove - a striking resemblance in many ways.
In this land of the great Chinese warrior Hang Tuah, UMNO plays Malay racial politics talking about Ketuanan Melayu, and Hang Tuah the great Chinese warrior who is well remembered by the historic well in that state, where the ruler was offered a wife by the great Hang dynasty and where the Malay ruler paid homage to the Chinese Emperor, UMNO Presents Ketuanan Melayu, and sends the 1 Malaysia to the dumps.
