Umno plays the Ummi Hafilda card
'She was known for her ‘I'm still a virgin' comment during the earlier trial of Anwar Ibrahim. I wonder if she is still insisting she is a virgin.'
Docs: Question: Why after 11 years, Ummi Hafilda Ali wants to sue Anwar Ibrahim? Answer: Ummi is broke and needs cash to maintain her lifestyle.
We all remember her flamboyant lifestyle and flashy clothes (known today as bling) at the Sodomy I trial. So just like Umno is trying to reap from Sodomy I with Sodomy II, Ummi too is trying to reap from Sodomy II. I have a feeling this ‘has been' socialite may not go very far this time around.
Question: If Ummi's RM300 million suit against Anwar for allegedly abusing his power as deputy premier is to save the country from Anwar and Azmin; if she does win the suit, will she pass the RM300 million to the rakyat. Answer: Unlikely.
If she was to win the suit, which is possible with the Umno-run judiciary, she would have to pay a big fat cut to Umno. That too if Anwar actually pays up.
Ma'arip: I'm not sure whether to laugh or to cry on Ummi's intention to sue these people. The whole Pakatan Rakyat must be shivering with fear.
Pontianak: She was known for her "I'm still a virgin" comment during the earlier trial of Anwar Ibrahim. I wonder if she is still insisting she is a virgin.
Keanjin: "I had sex with Ummi in London," said Norazman Abdullah @ Baginda anak Minda to the murmurs of those seated in the public gallery.
"When we returned to Malaysia, Ummi told me that she would give my ex-wife RM200,000 so that we (Ummi and I) could get married and elope to London," Norazman said, adding that he was then married with two children.
"Ummi also told me that I would have a 25 percent share in a RM10 million advertising project," he added. Full Malaysiakini report on Norazman's testimony in Sodomy I here .
AnonymousA: As the GE draws nearer, we have all sorts of shows - directed and presented by Umno. The drama has just begun, let's sit back and watch the free show.
Ghkok: This lady pops up again. Those of us who are old enough to remember ... we were all 12 years younger then, I remembered the rubbish she was spewing from her venomous mouth. Now she pops up again. Aiyoh .
Masu Otaku: They must be getting really desperate if they have to resort to playing the Ummi Hafilda Ali card. She's a has-been for such a very long time now.
Change: Anwar, RM300 million; Karpal Singh, RM200 million; Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, RM100 million; PAS, RM100 million. So the total is RM700 million.
There is still RM300 million short of RM1 billion. Ummi, I suggest you take it from your brother Azmin, RM100 million; Lim Kit Siang, RM100 million; and finally another RM100 million from Tok Guru Nik Aziz Nik Mat.
Sarawakian: I just can't believe that she still dares to show her face in public. Wasn't she disowned by her own father after Sodomy I? Umno must really be desperate.
Hulk_kian: Psychologists say there must be at least a little bit of truth no matter how hard a person try to make up a story.
Notice she said 'further destruction if the country fall in the hand of Pakatan'? For her to say that, she must have very strong subconscious thinking that the current BN government is already pushing the country to destruction.
If her motive is really to save our country, I wonder why she is not suing BN for crimes done, and instead suing Pakatan for crimes she presumed will happen in future?
Singa Pura Pura: "Ummi wants to 'save the country' from Anwar." And who is to save us all from you? And you would like us to believe that you are doing all this for our country, our race and our religion?
Yeap Cheng Liang: My goodness, of all the people, Umno turns to this dubious lady to save themselves. Malaysians can expect a rerun of an old movie.
Pemerhati: This looks like another one of Najib Razak's and Umno's plan to discredit Anwar and Pakatan Rakyat. What is noteworthy is that they seem to be essentially following Mahathir Mohamad's earlier dirty and despicable script with some slight modifications.
Mahathir came up with trumped-up sodomy charges and used Ummi Hafilda to get rid of Anwar's political challenge. Now Najib and Umno are doing almost the same thing but they have also added some ridiculous and outrageous legal suits.
With the strategy, they not only expect to get rid of Anwar Ibrahim, their number one threat, but also hope to make a lot of money with the help of their kangaroo courts.
Vijay: I'm more than being disappointed with Ummi. I feel very insulted. She is suing everyone in Malaysia but I am not included in the list.
To quote Rafidah Aziz: "Why? Tell me why!" Am I not good enough for you? Maybe that should be, "Am I not bad enough for you?"
Justice Seeker: This woman is the one who was responsible for DSAI's (Anwar Ibrahim's) predicament. In fact from what I understand, she was very close to DSAI's family through (her brother) Azmin Ali's close ties with DSAI. In the course of her visits to the then DPM's house, she began falling in love with DSAI. But unfortunately, DSAI snubbed her advances. Broken hearted, she extracted revenge. The rest is history now.
Not Confused: For Umno to drag out this has-been who is nothing but a deluded attention-seeker, it must be really bankrupt of ideas and really running scared.
Keep it up, Ummi - you are doing the best job ever to ensure that Putrajaya falls to the opposition. I for one cannot wait.
MB: Ummi Hafilda, why stop there? Why not ask Bank Negara to hand over to you a blank cheque?
