Recycled spin more than ten years old
Salleh Said Keruak
This spin about disunity in Umno and/or Barisan Nasional Sabah is more than ten years old and keeps resurfacing from time to time. In fact, Sabah was supposed to be the backbone of '16 September' where 10 of the 30 MPs who were supposed to cross over were allegedly from Sabah.
In the end nothing happened each and every time. But that does not stop the opposition from resurrecting and recycling this story. And they do it each time they are facing problems and need to distract people from the mess the opposition is in.
The truth is Umno and Barisan Nasional Sabah have never been more united than now. Realising that the Prime Minister has been the target of a plot, Umno and Barisan Nasional Sabah have closed ranks and are standing solidly behind Chief Minister Musa Aman.
It is wishful thinking on the part of Opposition if they think there is a power struggle in Sabah, which is going to result in a change of state government. Sabah has demonstrated loyalty to the party and party leadership and will continue to do so.
