A cartoon depicting Turkey as a "Sick Man of Europe". What was once a great Ottoman Empire reduced to naught today! A possible comparison with Umno if this party is not careful with its old habits!
Like any 50 year old man who does not take care of himself, Umno is suffering from a deteriorating physique and possibly from bad health! But it can recover if it wants!
Like an old man it may be suffering from a deteriorating cardiovascular problem or other general malaise for not taking care of itself.
Metaphorically speaking, the last general elections shows Umno definitely needs to go to a "health farm" or to take Yoga to strenghten the spirit and the old muscle.
I was watching BernamaTV and saw an interview with Rahim Thamby Chik, former Chief Minister of Malacca, and this man as a politician was full of negative publicity. If I were an ordinary member of the public growing up listening and reading what this man was involved in I would reject him as a leader. He was implicated, later found not guilty, in a sex case involving a minor, a sad and a very sickening episode that left bad taste to a lot of Malaysians.
Politic is about perception, my perception on him is never good, hey I am entitled to my views. To hear him say that he would gladly accept any post that he was nominated for is to make me cringe.
When I look at him with his dyed jet black hair and his sinister expression when he speaks I said to myself that Umno can never be healthy again as long as it still wants people like him to be leaders of a once respected and a very old Malay party.
Umno must be diseased free!
I believe Umno can still regain its health by not keeping up with old habits.
Umno does not need leader like Rahim to regain its composure after the last showing of the country recent general elections! Please agree with me on this people, especially Umno people that is, if you want your party to be relevant, AGAIN that is!
