Talking Sense

How far the statement will help Mukhriz and the others in UMNO that brave enough to visibly support his cause, nobody can say for sure. But there are glimpses of hope for them. Let us for now give the statements made below the benefit of the doubt and not view the same as just another one of UMNO's window dressing attempts. For now, at least. Shall we?

Menurut beliau, walaupun Ahli Parlimen Jerlun itu mendesak Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi supaya meletak jawatan, semua pihak tidak boleh mengambil jalan mudah dengan menghukum atau memecat Mukhriz. Beliau berkata, ini kerana UMNO mempunyai saluran Perlembagaan yang membolehkan setiap ahlinya memberikan pandangan terhadap pemimpinnya. Read more Nazri tidak setuju Mukhriz dikenakan tindakan.

At least there are people in UMNO that are sensible enough to say things that go against the current populist view of the party, like the one here. If only more would come forward and speak up. Be sensible and rational instead of keeping up with current UMNO trend that is to be "loyal", ala UMNO of course. Sensible enough, for example with regard to Mukhriz's case, to acknowledge the fact that there are provisions in UMNO Constitution that allows its members to air their opinion and such. Now Nazri Aziz and Muhyiddin have said their part. Anyone else?

Maybe they, UMNO, got a chance. But coming from Nazri Aziz, you don't have that good of a chance. But as you said, let's be fair to them. Let us see how far they will go with this.. "charade"?
