UMNO went into a panic-ky defensive mode.
The Perak BN representatives were summoned to the DPM's house in KL and made to pledge their loyalty. After that, DPM buat macam penuh keyakinan, came up with silly statements like,
" the MPs and assemblymen pledged to stick with Barisan through thick and thin."
"those absent also pledged their loyalty to him through the telephone."
“You see, they are all here to show their commitment. Those mentioned in the SMSes are also here,”
Then they started on their counter attack.
Apparently, according to Malaysiakini, these people who say, "not good to switch sides", "it is selfish" etc, has gone to shopping for some willing froggies.
Over the past few days, rumours that two Perak exco members - Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi and Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu - are quitting PKR have been rife. The duo have not publicly denied this.UMNO would be really stupid if they think that as long as you can get the chaps to crossover and make it 30-29, it does not matter who you bring in.
The rumours surfaced immediately after Bota assemblyperson Nasarudin Hashim left Umno for PKR last Sunday. Najib took over as Perak Umno chief after Tajol Rosli Ghazali stepped down to take responsibility for the defection.
Jamaluddin and Mohd Osman are both facing corruption charges and their trial is scheduled to begin Feb 10.
In a faxed statement today, Osman said family members of the duo and party members have been unable to contact them for four days.
"We believe that their disappearance is closely linked to the corruption charges they are facing. Since the beginning, we have been confident that the allegations against them are false and cooked up by Umno and Barisan Nasional as political blackmail," he said.
UMNO would be really stupid if they think that the rakyat will not notice if the corruption charges on the two suddenly disappears.
All this is still speculation.
The thing is, Lulu does think UMNO is really stupid [mainly cos blinded by greed] and would not put it past them to do something as stupid as that.
