  • Is this some kind of April Fool’s joke, or did Najib consider it serious stuff? If the latter, I pity Najib. It has revealed him as a political bankrupt – that he should deem fit to prop up an Umno junk as saviour for himself and the party. End of the road for Najib/Umno/BN.
    On the other hand, take this false alarm as a jerk to something more serious – that GE 14 could arrive sooner than we think. We must redouble our preparation for it as if it is only days away. We must also have Plan B in case Najib suddenly resigns to remove the bull’s eye from our firing range. What is our strategy in such an eventuality?
