I was asked by a friend to view the 1.32 minutes video of Shahrizat lambasting PKR and claiming her innocence over the NFC affair. Actually, I was tempted to view the video much earlier but I thought it would be a waste of time because I have read so much what the video was all about. But having viewed the video reluctantly, I felt entertained and somewhat hilarious at what I saw – a Hindustani look alike lady at the top of her voice and gesturing aggressively at an audience that seems to enjoy the antics (some unwomanly) of the lady.
To Shahrizat, let me say this – that you have got it all wrong, and the General Assembly is certainly not the forum to defend the alleged wrong doing of your family members. Just leave that to the police, and are you not having some comfort when the Deputy IGP commented that so far the police investigation of the NFC hasn’t revealed any evidence of impropriety. The alleged wrong doing is a private matter that has to be resolved by your family members, and since you yourself have said that you have nothing to do with the NFC affair, then why raised it at the assembly? Defend it in the court when the case gets dragged into the court.
In defending the NFC and that of her family, Shahrizat took to tasked PKR Wanita Chief Zuraida Kamaruddin and challenged her to asked PKR President Dr. Wan Azizah to resign. Now, what is the connection between the NFC and seeking Dr. Wan Azizah’s resignation? Is Dr. Wan Azizah in connivance with the NFC affair? If Shahrizat has a grudge to settle with Zuraida, why get Dr. Wan Azizah into the fry? Just get directly at Zuraida. Using such an argument makes Shahrizat, a lawyer herself looked lame, desperate, lost, and unprincipled and lacking in reasonable judgment.
What I think is most hilarious are the ‘court jester’ like support that Shahrizat gets from her predominantly women audience i.e. the clapping, cheers and laughter. Having seen the spontaneous reaction of the audience, I now believe Shahrizat makes an excellent actress. It is so obvious that her audiences are all blind and ignorant of the truth, and if this is the nature of UMNO Wanita today i.e. to blindly support an act that is deemed wrong by many, then I dare say that this wing of UMNO is doomed to failure.
