A month and a week ago I wrote on CHAP GOH MEI“ in which I mentioned “It was a Monday full of “twists and turns”in Malaysia. I remembered Boomtown Rats song in July 1979 when I was in England doing my ‘A’ levels” I Don’t Like Mondays” was a UK number one single.
Today, Parliament and UMNO has taken the limelight and both these issues are on everyones lips be it in Malaysia or in the International arena. So who loves and who doesn’t like Mondays? Any offers….
It all started in Parliament and this is extracted from Malaysiakini,”Minister in the PM’s department Nazri Abdul Aziz’s motion to suspend Puchong member of Parliament Gobind Singh for 12 months was passed in Parliament today.
Even when Lim Kit Siang mentioned that a seven-day notice should have been issued before it is debated it was rebutted flatly by the Speaker of the House, Pandikar Amin Mulia. He said,”it should be debated now since ‘Parliament is no longer like a first-world Parliament anymore’
So Gobinds day took a turn for the worse as This Monday is a Monday that he does not particular like or fond of. Gobind is suspended with immediate effect, without salary, allowances and perks. Gobind must have gone to a place where no one would hear him shouting and singing to the tune of Boomtown Rats,” I Don’t Like Mondays”
It seems that just as Gobind has finished singing his song we were also alerted by an sms. “Check out Malaysiakini“. Wow !! Could this be happening to UMNO? Yesterday we read about “Mr.Likeable” in the NST and the interview.
Today some one must have made it a Monday where he will also sing,” I Don’t Like Mondays” Its only speculations and we would not know whats coming until it happens. But its like a BRICK ON THE FACE on this Monday for anyone suspected of money politics which may or may not lead to an immediate suspension which very much depends on the findings.
Malaysiakini extracts,”All eyes are on the Umno disciplinary committee meeting tomorrow following widespread rumours that a senior party leader, who is slated to contest in the upcoming Umno polls, could be suspended for money politics.In Umno circles, the name of the particular leader, who is known among the delegates as ‘Mr Likeable’, has also been openly mentioned.
We say as always,” Pretty sure Gobind will be belting out Boomtown Rats I Don’t Like Mondays but the UMNO aspirants will be hoping that the sms alerts flying around will be just mere rumours on this Monday. Oouch it will hurt someone..!!!
