The Sulking Continues

UMNO's management committee had a meeting this evening and sigh... it ended in a whimper. Yeah.. yeah... I said I would take a break from political posting.. which I did for erm.... the entire day when the sun was shining...

Exerpts taken here news from, some worrisome words I must say...

KUALA LUMPUR, March 27 – Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will face his day of reckoning this year. The Umno Supreme Council decided that the party will not be postponed till early next year and will be held instead from Dec 16 to 20.
Their rationale: The party needed to allow its grassroots to vent their anger and frustration over Election 2008. Only after this catharsis could Umno realistically embark on a period of reform and move to win back the support of Malaysians.

This decision was not surprising given the fact that the management committee comprising Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and other senior party officials decided unanimously yesterday to push for elections to be held this year. The party bigwigs know that there is a lot of anger and confusion on the ground about the gains made by the opposition at the expense of Umno and the future of the party. Much of the anger is targeted at Abdullah.

What worries me is with the election going to be held in Dec 16 to 20.. well thats fine by me really.... what troubles me is their rationale.... to allow grassroots to vent anger and frustration.. from now till DEC?????

After this catharsis only can they embark on reform?????? I was really like WTF???? So the whole country needs to wait while UMNO sulks from now till Dec?

see here for another variation of their sulking:
