Crocodile Tears

If the latest study by UMcedel is to be believed, the Chinese voters of Temerloh are already regretting dumping their former BN MP, Saifuddin Abdullah. Before we go further though, it has to be said that this really needs to be taken with a big pinch of salt based on UMcedel’s dubious track record and the links between its head, Redzuan Othman, and a certain Anwar bin Ibrahim.

The story, as told by The Malaysian Insider here, attempts to convey the following narrative:

Saifuddin was a popular representative who the Chinese voters of Temerloh were happy with. However they were unhappy with UMNO because of the 4 C’s: corruption, cronysism (sic), crime and cost of living. The Chinese voters of Temerloh were duped by Pakatan’s Ubah campaign into thinking that they could send BN packing and save the country from the 4 C’s, so they voted to boot out their popular MP. They now regret their action and if only UMNO could “get it right, then there is no problem to regain support from the community”.


Well, I call bullshit. IMO, this is nothing more than a damage limitation exercise, with UMcedel and perhaps even Saifuddin complicit in it. Are we to believe that the Chinese rejection of UMNO has nothing to do with its pro-Bumi agenda? That if only UMNO addressed the 4 C’s effectively the Chinese would happily return to the BN fold? The only thing these folks are sorry for is that they did not get what they wanted. They gambled and lost, and now they are afraid of the payback.

They remind me of these jokers and their groveling apologies after their victim turned the tables and called the cops on them:

We should expect to see such shows of “regret” often in the coming weeks and months. If Najib falls for this and continues to appease them at the expense of those who have loyally supported him, then he is a fool. 5 years from now, they will do exactly what they did on May 5th, only this time he may no longer have the solid support of the Bumiputras to bail him out.

OK, rant over. On a different note, can anyone tell me what on earth is CIMB doing advertising on the Malaysian Insider? Is somebody asleep at the wheel? Does the PM even know what his little brother is up to? Or is there something else going on behind the scenes over at TMI?

    […] For them, it’s never the Chinese’s fault in anything. Not even responsibility for the Chinese tsunami votes. Recommended read, Oik on ‘Crocodile Tears‘. […]
