"Anwar just making a lot of noise", says Malacca Chief Minister, Mohd Ali Rustam as was reported in Star online, 20th July, 2008.
I believe, Mohd Ali suffers from 'short memory syndrome' or SMS in short. Has he forgotten that it was the same noise that had brought down the BN government in three west coast states and almost wiped out BN control of the Federal Territory? And I can bet you my bottom dollar, that if there be a general election in Malacca today, Mohd Ali might as well drown himself in the Malacca Straits, rather than face the wrath of his bosses in Putrajaya.
While Anwar keeps making a lot of noise, and continuously draws huge crowds at all gatherings, UMNO appears still in a daze and unsettled, with lots of dissenting voices being heard outside the halls of the PWTC building.
Isn't the decision by Pak Lah to hand over the UMNO leadership to Najib in 2010, the result of these dissenting voices? Have you not heard the dissenting voices of some top notch UMNO politician stating their disagreement that the hand over date is far too long? And it is only you the 'Melakan UMNO', who wants the post of the President and Deputy President to remain unchallenged; for god knows why.
Mohd Ali, you know full well that your position as the CM come the next general election is precarious, so why not join Anwar in making a lot of noise too?
