One bad cough from Umno

Dr Jeffrey Goh  |  Published:  |  Modified:

It is unarguable amongst Malaysians today that if there is one single organisation in the country that is sufficiently powerful in influencing the 'well-being' of Malaysia it would be the Umno, the strongest and also the oldest Malay political party in power. Indeed, Umno is unequivocally the dominating party that has guided the destiny of our country since independence in 1957.

Therefore, if we may so simply illustrate the overwhelming clout Umno has over our country, it will be like this, 'One bad cough from an Umno assembly is serious enough to send the whole of Malaysia spiralling into an epidemic of socially, economically and politically-related illnesses it will find hard to heal from'.

As such we as citizens and Rakyat Malaysia need to ask ourselves one very important question. If Umno is so important in deciding the fate of our country, should not its delegates and leaders at take more precautions before delivering 'policies' and personal opinions in their speeches and debates? I believe we all know what the answer is. And I also believe we all know what the implications are.
