UMNO's Sunday meeting fails to address problem

According to newspaper reports, at the end of the speech no one asked any questions. Now if you have been a teacher long enough you will know that the lack of question is usually a sign that the students were either disinterested or did not understand what was said in class or has heard it all before. Very rarely it is a sign that they were well engaged.

If a speech is interesting and caught the imagination of the listeners it would have triggered a whole bunch of further questions and clarifications and there are certainly a lot of unanswered questions about UMNO’s performance at the election.

If those who attended did not object to Abdullah saying that the party was sabotaged, then it was probably a sign of their admission and yet none of the leaders seemed the least bit worried that they are staring at mutiny in the face.

They seemed happy that the captain told the crew that he knew they had back-tabbed him and was not concerned that they do not know why the crew turned on them.

If we recall correctly, reports from the ground were rosy everywhere just as it should be if a sabotage is about to take place and again it was all rosy in that hall on Sunday.

The meeting was the perfect opportunity for the leadership to show why the Extraordinary General Meeting called for by Kelantan Umno chieftain Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah is unnecessary.

All they had to do was allow the 10,000 or so grassroot leaders to voice their opinion and vent their anger and the leadership can then say that they have heard and will take action. That would have negated any need for an EGM but now it seems that the EGM is more necessary than ever.

This lack of self criticism and examination is worrying because it will further alienate members who are already unhappy with the leadership. Who is to say how many percent of the UMNO membership is unhappy with the leadership but certainly there is unhappiness and, like Pak Lah said, they sabotaged the party.

During the meeting, the PM also launched attacks on his critics like Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tengku Razaleigh while taking swipes at the de facto leader of the Opposition, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
