And may he fail this Acid test… (arabnews.com)

How does the Arabs know about this and some of us still don’t?

“Perhaps more worryingly for Prime Minister Badawi is his eroding position in UMNO, of which he is the current president. “Even if he wins the general election, there is a real danger that Paklah (the truncated pet name for the prime minister) may lose the UMNO leadership battle at the next party convention in November 2008. If that is the case, then he will be forced to resign as premier, and make way for the new president of UMNO,” explained a prominent UMNO insider”.

“Badawi’s main rival is the current UMNO Deputy President Najib Tun Abdul Razak, who is also the defense minister. Najib’s political pedigree could not be better. He is the son of the federation’s second prime minister, the much-loved Tun Abdul Razak, and has a much stronger grassroots support in UMNO than Badawi, the son of a prominent imam and considered to be an increasingly aloof and indecisive technocrat”.

    Aww I dunno, there`s always the remote possibility that Badawi will lose his kepala batas seat. Now that`ll be the best thing ever.

  3. Whatever the outcome of the acid test
    Perhaps it’s time to take a long rest
    As a favour to what voters think best
    To keep the chest warm better wear vest

    My blood pressure shot up when I watched how his facial and verbal expression threatened MCA and the Chinese community should the later vote against BN. Oh yeah, his mediaman and cell group leader WCW was nodding in agreement throughout the interview in TV3 9pm yesterday. I told myself “Come tomorrow, Pak Lah please do your worse lah! I don’t care anymore.” His fengshui master probably forgot to tell him that 08-03-08 is an auspicious day to do ‘Choy Yat’….hahaha.

    Among other things, Whispering9, this is why I never vote BN! One doesn’t like to be threatened. This has been very visible particularly since circa ’74. I just voted PKR(P) and PAS(S) this morning.
