Finally, Najib speaks up
Thank you Mr Prime Minister for speaking up although it took you about 5 days after your political subordinates from Umno and MCA got involved in a silly verbal war, which many of us thought it shouldnt have taken place at all (read here).
As chairman of Barisan Nasional, you were right about the needs for component parties to resolved sensitive matters in the spirit of consensus, and not by opening up a 'free for all' bout.
However, it will be proper to discuss whatever differences behind close doors. The new media nowadays are quick at contemplating, some in your favor and some are not.
Your 1Malaysia doesnt need such batterings. If all parties abide to the true spirit of cooperation and tolerance, everybody will be fine.
Umno and MCA have internal problems too. Leaders of both sides must try hard to win the support of their respective party members and not being obsessed by petty issues. Should one party falters, the impact on BN will be disastrous!
So, Umno and MCA - put that ugly episode behind...
