Mat Tyson’s volte-face was to trigger a Perak move, say sources

Muhammad Muhammad Taib’s tenure as Selangor menteri besar ended in 1997 when he quit over a currency offence in Australia. Yesterday, the ex-PKR and PAS member re-joined Umno. – The Malaysian Insight pic, September 18, 2017.

IT was meant to be more than just Muhammad Muhammad Taib re-joining Umno yesterday. He was supposed to bring along eight state government lawmakers and cause the collapse of the Azmin Ali administration.

But for the intervention of powerful stakeholders in Selangor, the end result: Umno president Najib Razak only had Muhammad to show at 5pm in a much-hyped press conference in Kuala Lumpur.

  • " ..... be eight PKR assemblymen joining the 12 Umno lawmakers and another 13 from PAS ...." - ...... must be from the PAS loving faction in PKR ...... Vote them OUT at next election !!!! .... a foreboding of things to come after GE14 ...... "kataks" jumping all over driven by self-interest, greed, money, posts, etc ....

  • The Zaid preempted warning of UmnoBN modus operandi in enticing froggies to cause a collapse in the State Goverment has definitely derailed Najib UmnoBn plan. BUT again our friend lone departure is not a big loss to PH . The anticlimax press conference really do tell of Najib bankrupt ideas in all his strategies. All the caricature cartoons in the media of him and his deputy as BS man holds true to expectation. Now with the failed episode exposure it sure does help to rein in wannabe froggies who are not loyal to their political party. Flush them out and make sure that they will not be adun in GE14. Let Najib UmnoBN have the nagging worry about the old frog who has joined them for it could be a purpoted trojan horse. LOL
