At least that's what I've been told.
I'm not going to be a naysayer and dismiss the gathering of 52 Umno supreme council members now at Holiday Inn Glenmarie although I am so tempted to.
They've called this very private two-day meeting a "retreat". You know, in the style of presidents and prime ministers of the world retreating to some quiet and serenity after a week of major conferencing. I have the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in mind.
But tell me, really, whether this Umno retreat will amount to anything. Really. What will it take for Umno and its leaders to accept the truth...the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Will the frank and open discussions with the Umno president and his men about the party's leadership crisis and all issues related to it effect the desired changes?
Will it have any bearing on Umno's leadership from now until December when the party elections take place.
Umno is still struggling to understand the problem and the crisis it is in?
Have not Umno leaders been frank and honest to the party leaders before this following the BN's devastating performance in the March 8 general election?
Whatever happened to the "exit plan" proposed in Johor recently?
Has Umno not got around to accepting the fact that Umno has been reduced to what it is because of its monumental arrogance?
Umno supreme council leaders can all agree on how to handle Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad?
Ok. So the reservoir has not been drained and Umno can still go on searching for answers and fixes.
And perhaps, who knows, the supreme council members will be straight-talking and Pak Lah will not only be listenin'..
So, until then...good luck and good night!
Here's the story.
