If this Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/91490 which has headlined “Arrest Khairy under ISA” was to be put up in cyber space before March 8 2008 there will only be one consequence. What will happen..? Do I need to elaborate.? Perak delegate Ting Tai Fook dared even to today called on the authorities to detain Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for making racist remarks. Believe it or not Khairy was one of the VIPs present. Has Ting been consistently following RPK blogs that he is putting himself as one who also subscribes to being”NO HOLDS BARRED”
Seems that he knows that Khairy is losing his invincibility as the two main reasons are Firstly,Khairy seems to be under attack from Tun Mahathir who seems to love to attack Khairy and his fourth floor boys.Secondly,even the UMNO youth divisions have summoned their courage and endorsed quickly Muhkriz Mahathir with 44 votes to Khairy’s 23 nominations presently.
Ting took Khairy, who is also the son-in-law of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, to task over his remarks concerning the ratio of the bumiputera and non-bumiputera quota on scholarships. He said such remarks were not only condoned by the Umno leadership but also paved the way for Ahmad to make similar offensive remarks.
The pressure that is put on Khairys shoulders is immense and it will be a GREAT ACHIEVEMENT for him to overcome it. The view from many political pundits is that Khairy needs to show ,”What is his own LEADERSHIP QUALITIES.?” He needs to fight all the barrage of criticisms,all accusations which are being hurled,his overzealous ways in the Badawi administration and above all the Mahathir factor.
A veteran politician said to me over coffee at the MCA assembly,” He is being pushed to the wall and he will come out fighting.Believe me.” I smiled and said to myself and Khairy himself an Oxford graduate will have learnt the ‘British Bulldog spirit” and learnt from Sir Winston Churchill,”Victory at all costs,victory however long and hard the road maybe,for without victory there is no survival.” So do you think Khairy’s days are NUMBERED..?
