Finally, Umno starts to repair its image

 Umno finally get their act together and sidelined Tajuddin Rahman.

I have always believe that the guy was more a liability to the party in the overall scheme of things.

He may be popular in his local environment in Pasir Salak but not as the face of the party.

Umno really shouldn't keep such boorish and irritating people as its frontliners.

There are several others who are similar to Tajuddin.

I'm not saying that Umno should get rid of them altogether but it should really stop letting them shape its image.

One of the reasons Umno and its allies lost in GE14 was because people see it as being led by a bunch of stupid gangster-like figures who were most likely corrupt and racist.

That's why the Pakatan's campaign of Asal Bukan Umno worked.

Umno needs a new image with good and performing leaders like Mat Hasan, Hasni, KJ, Ashraf Dusuki, etc,

Of course, the media doesn't seem to like what's happening, as many of them don't really like Umno.

They tried to portray the sacking of Tajuddin from the supreme council as a big rift within Umno, which would split the party.

Well, as long as Umno members don't think that's the case, then it should be alright.

The party really need to stay the course and replace those who were actually liabilities.

It needs to do so across the board, and not just among those who went against the party leadership.

For instance, they need to push to the background personalities such as Puad Zarkashi, who has been busy propping himself to be a leading party man, including in the case of Tajuddin.

The media have been highlighting Puad's statements quite a lot lately as if his voice is the voice of Umno. Just check reports on him by FMT, okay.

They like Puad to be the image of Umno - irritating and unpopular.

Do remember that when Puad won the Rengit seat during the BN's landslide victory in the Johor election earlier this year, he did so with a significantly reduced majority. 

The former Umno's Rengit assemblyman Ayub Jamil had won the seat amidst BN's defeat in 2018 with a majority of 4,172 while Puad only managed 1,920.

Really, Umno has better leaders for its image than Puad.

The party also needs to replace those who clearly failed to perform in the run-up to the 2018 defeat.

For instance, a state party leader who lost his state seat, parliament seat and the whole state should not remain as the face of Umno.

Umno would be stupid if it continues to prop up such a failure as its top leader.

Well, maybe such a leader can still be fielded again in his constituency where he lost in 2018 but don't lah try to put him to contest a safe seat to make sure that he could remain as a top Umno leader.

If the guy had contested a seat such as Pasir Gudang, let him stays there instead of sending him to Mersing or Kota Tinggi where he has a better chance of winning.

Errr, I think the Umno leadership can understand that.

Anyway, for now, I still think Umno and its BN allies will do well in the next general election, especially if it's to be held very soon.

Their opponents, whether Pakatan, Perikatan, Pas or any others, are too much in disarray now to repeat their victory in 2018.


  1. No need to repair. The whole party is corrupt from top to bottom. . It is con job for past 60 plus years. to be in power. In the past everybody is poor. Now of elite or those connect to this party are rich. Poor are getting poorer. Few are getting the crumb. At the end the day most smartest are leaving the country leaving dungus party supporters running tge country incl those running glcs and ministries.It started with non bumi now you will see bumi are leaving.Do they care about this. Narda. Do they about about economy. If you dont have top brains you dont have strong economy.It is like money to a drunk.One man can con the pm with billions.Why because we choose clueless person as pm. Consequence is we all have to party. Do you stll want to repair this party. IF WE DO. WE WILL ALL BE CURSED AS A NATION of cabron and bendejo

    1. Correct. And KJ and H2O are also on the take, have been for years. That UKSB ledger is just the tip of the iceberg.

  2. "The media have been highlighting Puad's statements quite a lot lately as if his voice is the voice of Umno. Just check reports on him by FMT, okay. They like Puad to be the image of Umno - irritating and unpopular."

    Please lah.....this guy is anjing peliharaan of your beloved BossKurap.

    So, "brilliant" ideas like suing Madey for Batu Puteh (for which he has zero locus standi) are actually ideas of BossMu & Umngok leadership's "best brains".

    It IS the voice of Umngok.


    Please learn to love Puad long time, ya, as he may be signing your cheques after PRU15.

  3. zahid, najib are no better than puad or tajuddin. not sure why the move is seen as umno repairing its image.

    zahid, najib, tsmy, sabri, anwar, entire mahathir clan need to go for the sake of a reset.

  4. Reset the economy. Malaysia should advocate telent driven economy not crony driven economy that was religious followed past 60 plus years. Glc should be run not by politicians. The problem with this party is. Every one from member to ketua cawangan to ketua bahagian to members of mkt and ministers to pm whan a cut even though that are not talented or deserved..PH have tried todi that it failed .It is ingrained in these peoples mind that road to riches is through politics not through hardwork and knowledge. What we produce have to compete with the world. We might be our street smart but not world street smart.We were conned by these peoples who are smarter than us.No there is no point to rest this party unless we are going reset the mind of the party member in particular and whole of malaysian in general.

  5. "Too many cooks spoil the broth"

    Apabila Naib Presiden Umno Ismail Sabri Yaakob dilantik sebagai PM, tidak ada keributan atau bantahan orang ramai dari UMNO jadi saya andaikan dia secara automatik dinaikkan pangkat kepada presiden UMNO. Hanya presiden boleh membuat keputusan muktamad untuk parti kan. Yang lain bising- bising apa pasal

  6. Its pointless talking about what UMNO want as that do not reflect what UMNO does. Neither do UMNO do things that is best for the rakyat.. that does not mean the Pakatan are better off.. same animal but different stripe.. all self serving. Stop kidding ourselves if u think Pakatan is a better choice.. all naga lapar jugak
