In last week's Penang Umno state liaison committee meeting, its chairman Pak Lah failed to persuade the Bukit Bendera Umno division chairman Datuk Ahmad "Nazi" Ismail to apologise but instead Ahmad got an overall support from the Penang Umno state liaison committee members and the other division chairmen urging Ahmad not to apologise to the Chinese community.
As the radical racist support for Ahmad in Umno intensify, Pak Lah's call for national unity was again sidelined and ignored by his own Umno grassroot leaders who by now going out of control. Pak Lah was not able to control nor contain the radical racist leaders in his party. Is Pak Lah losing support from his own base?
Meanwhile, Ahmad and his Umno gangs held another press conference, this time demonstrating to the press and public how they took down the poor Dr Koh Tsu Koon's potrait and tore it into pieces, thus throwing it into the waste paper basket, with chants of anti Chinese, anti Gerakan and supremacy slogans could be heard at the conference room. Besides, Ahmad also called on the Umno's leadership to expell Gerakan from BN.Some heated arguments had also occurred between some of the journalist present and the Bukit Bendera Umno division leaders. So, what next ?
