UMNO's Danse Macabre

Danse Macabre.

The pattern seems to be repeated over and over again. In an earlier MKT meeting, when 5 UMNO caporegime spoke to insist the time table for the hand over from Pak lah to Dato Najib, be speeded up, our dear Pak Lah was almost in tears. He was lucky to be spared the embarrassment because of the timely intervention from the beneficiary of the deal, Dato Najib.

When the MKT met within the week from this meeting, Pak Lah had a tete-a-tete with Dato Najib, before the MKT meeting.

It seems that solving the ills of UMNO is almost always preceded or followed by a private discussion between the two besieged UMNO leaders. Sakmongkol hopes for the sake of UMNO, what they are discussing is in the best interests of UMNO.

Sakmongkol must repeat the observation made by Cao Cao in the Romance of Three Kingdoms when told of the collaboration of two of his adversaries, Liu Bei and Sun Quan. When a loser combines with a coward, they accomplished nothing.

The fate of UMNO is no longer in the hands of just two leaders or even the MKT. UMNO must undertake its own bloodletting if it wants to save itself. Whatever pious statements that emanate from Pak Lah( I love UMNO) and filial observance by Dato Najib( UMNO has a tradition that he intends to follow), will not be able to contain the groundswell of hopelessness. That sense of emptiness is caused by the impervious leadership of UMNO, that insulates itself from the voice of the people.

In the end, Pak Lah and Dato Najib and the cabal of visibly frightened corrupted and abusive caporegimes will all lead us to the demise of UMNO.

Sakmongkol is afraid that, the shilly-shallying of the present UMNO leaders is indeed a Danse Macabre. Sakmongkol is reminded by a German poem on the Danse Macabre;

Her keyser euch hilft nicht das swert

Czeptir vnd crone sint hy nicht wert

Ich habe euch bey der hand genomen

Ir must an meynen reyen komen

Emperor, your sword won’t help you out

Sceptre and crown are worthless here

I’ve taken you by the hand

For you must come to my dance

Are our two leaders doing this to us?

"I think I speak for the country when I say we are embarrassed at the sight of two grown men playing this endless children's game of 'yours and mine' with the most important responsibility in the land, oblivious of the law, oblivious to the damage they are doing to the nation.

"Instead of a national economic plan or any kind of reform all the Umno leadership has given us since March 8 is a transition plan designed to save two individuals from the inconvenience of facing elections.

"Their personal careers appear to be more important than the future of the nation," the Umno stalwart said yesterday. Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah
