Well, for one thing I don't believe that my opinion on what's going on in Umno now matters anymore.
I'm not an Umno member and Umno is no longer a ruling party.
That means whatever happened within Umno would not affect me in any way now.
So, I don't think I should give my unsolicited advices or criticisms to Umno.
It's all up to Umno members to decide where their party wants to go from now on.
That is at least until it becomes a ruling party again when its decisions will once again affect my life.
For now, it doesn't matter to me whether it wants to go left, right or centre.
Umno members can now also have any leader for themselves and I would not be bothered about it as it's no longer my business to be concerned about their choices.
Anyway, I have said all I want about what I wished for the party before its recent election.
As for the outcome of that party election, I believe the party members had decided to go to the right.
It's basically going to remain on its Malay agenda and everything it used to champion.
I have talked to some Umno friends and they all seemed to believe that the GE14 defeat was purely because of the rakyat's rejection of Najib and his leadership.
The party, they believe was not wrong in any way.
Now that Najib is gone, they believe that the rakyat (in particular Malays) will once again support Umno. The party and whatever allies it still has will bounce back in the next general election.
They also believe that PH is just an alliance of convenience and would break-up soon.
This is especially so once Dr Mahathir is no longer around to hold them together.
That would be as early as two years from now as it was promised by the current PM that he would hold on to that job for just that period.
So, my Umno friends believe there is nothing wrong for their party to remain as it is because once the rakyat see how bad things get under PH, they would revert back their support to Umno and its allies.
Well, I'm not going to comment on that.
As I had said, it's now no longer my concern to comment on Umno members' belief.
From now on, I'm just going to comment on things which directly affect me.
Things such as those done or failed to be done by the government and the PH ruling parties.
Again, Umno is now just an opposition party. The members should know better on how to handle themselves and their party than me, who is an outsider.
Errrr....here's a Chechen song and dance to cheer things up a bit.
