A moment of clarity

Retiring (or retired) BN politicians always talk more sense.

Mahathir had gone through that phase. Now it's Lim Keng Yaik's turn. After BN heavy losses in last weekend's general election, the former minister of Energy, Water and Communication (a.k.a. Ministry of Sao Ka Liao) came out with these words of wisdom:

“The arrogance in Umno must stop ... those rowdy cowboys are spoiling the party’s name on the ground ... the wielding of the keris must also stop as it frightens the people.

“Just as the MIC, MCA and Gerakan discipline their members when they get out of line, Umno must do the same.

“Their arrogance in parliament and at the Umno general assembly must stop ... you can argue but don’t be arrogant.

Whoa... suddenly the mute has spoken up! I really applaud this moment of clarity. But why did it take you so long to do so?

Sao Ka Liao (Hokkien) - sapu semua; taking all the delicious deals
BN - [1] a coalition of closed minds behind closed doors [2] just a noun
MIC, MCA, Gerakan - an even more pathethic version of [1], also a noun

And if you cannot get enough of Datuk LKY, here's more:
