If it Yips, You don't quit!


It's a skullduggery tactic by Yip Sun Onn. If it yips, you don't quit. Is the direct opposite of if it doesn't fit, you acquit.

A few days ago, the ADUN for Titi Tinggi, Yip Sun Onn resigned his seat. To execute his resignation he sent his letter of resignation to the Perlis MB and Speaker of the Perlis DUN.

But the speaker and the MB who are both from UMNO do not relish a by election in the state. Perlis can only have a specific number of EXCOs. It's a state the size of a monkey's spread-eagled legs. The MB is a besieged individual being attacked by people from his own party and presumably supporters of Shahidan Kassim. The speaker whose tenure depends on the whispering discretion of the MB said he will not pass Yip's letter to SPR. He said, YIP wasn't planning to resign his seat the state government will try to persuade Yip to remain as ADUN.

Today the Chairman of the SPR said the Titi TInggi seat is still not vacant. Only SPR can declare and pronounce a seat as vacant and since the wise Speaker has held back the letter, the SPR could not make any decision at all. he could very well say- what letter? Indeed the Speaker can also now say- what Letter?

Yip resigned on a simple reason. He was a former EXCO and he wasn't chosen to continue as EXCO. His decision to quit was purely because of personal greed. He wanted to be EXCO at all costs.

There's the chink in his self righteous armor. Being EXCO carries with it many financial perks- board members of state GLCs or businesses. Extra allowances, government cars, front seat at Istana functions, bragging rights to the wife (wives think they are also elected reps) and so on.

And so, we come to the million dollar question? What kinds of inducements were offered to Yip to not quit? Come on Yip- don't be bashful. Out with it. One Malaysia wants to know what you got my friend.

This Chinaman who resigns because of greed would not retract his resignation letter if the benefits of this final and enlightened decision do not outweigh the sense of anguish and humiliation which formed the basis of the cost of his quit decision. Suddenly his value has leaped by quantum heights. How much per inch Yip?

Should we wait with bated breath to see how the affair will work out in this Malaysia Bolehland?

He's got them by the short and curly.

People like him are tired of watching the Frogs from the opposition making hay whilst they are being quietly sidelined....

Pujuk punya pujuk dah tak jadi resign.
Nampak sangat dia tak ada prinsip.
Apa dia ingat Dewan Undangan tu tempat main acah-acah.
Macam ni punya Adunpun kita ada.

Kalau satu budak hingusan MCA (Dato Sak gelar matlaon) gertak pun UMNO dah kecut perut bagaimana nanti kalau Presiden MCA yang baru pula 'bersuara'.

This type of culture was promoted by none other than UMNO/BN.

Biar lah UMNO mampus!

kuldeep 24 March 2010 at 22:26  

did he hand his resignation letter to the speaker?did he have a press conference to state his resignation?did he meet the sultan?

Now..when is a resignation a resignation?In Perak a letter to the Speaker per se is not good enough.Thus,for Mr Yip case its consistent.In Kedah,being absent is not good enough too.

Sure not easy to resign nowadays..change allegiance is easier.

This is sending a wrong signal. What happen if tomorrow another 2-3 or even 10 elected representatives decided to quit? Is it going to be like drawing a lottery? You please stay and you must stay but you can go, stay.

What happen to the rights of the people who voted them? They definitely have been shamed. That's for sure

PANJI HITAM 61 25 March 2010 at 00:43  

He, he, he … this is just the pekung that I have long anticipated.
The real test for UMNO has begun. Poorly managed, it will lead to more cry babies, more threat and more defiance leading to serious breakdown of organization structure.

My advice to UMNO… go back to elementary school and relearn problem solving, conflict management and decision making failing which, more problems, more conflicts, more wrong decisions and eventual negative cycle of self destruction.

Good luck, UMNO.

What's so difficult to keep Yip? Petronas is still making big profits.

No worries mate.

Why is the BN now having to resort to buy it's own elected representatives? This is going to start a new trend I suppose? Let the fun begin.

Poor Vincent Tan. At the rate it is going, he's going to lose his billionaire status soon.

Well, looks like it is another case of money talks, integrity walks.

He who has no integrity, has no right to walk in the corridor of power.

I hope the 'rakyat' will send those involved into political oblivion in the next GE.

No wonder the UMNO likes to use pedatang YIP you are a disgrace for you action being unstable the word pedatang suits you. GO AND

Sama-lah dengan with what happened in Perak and more recently, the Katak MPs. It is the UMNO way and the only known way, to get people to either defect or stay on in their posts. This Yip case no different. That is whay come the GE13, the peope are going to bury the likes of Yip, UMNO and all things that even smell like UMNO. What do you think?

At least he had the scrotal gumption to quit his post and not defect or declare himself an independent. At least the mandate to decide on his seat was sort of being reyruned to the people by YB Yip.

I guess you should also ask the hand that gives. Yip would not have accepted without someone offering it.
It takes two to tango...
