UMNO is a disease in Sabah revisited
The party is reeling from an onslaught by the coalition's linchpin, Umno Sabah, which has made it a habit to harass its coalition partner.
The continued baiting has put LDP leaders in a combative mood after yet another Umno division leader made a public demand for a state seat held by the party.
Now it's Kudat in the northern tip of Sabah. Bolkiah Ismail, the Umno assemblyman for Pitas, lays claim to the Tanjung Kapor seat held by LDP.
"Asking for a seat in front of Hishamuddin and Tanjung Kapor assemblyman Teo Chee Kang (LDP secretary general) reflects his immaturity and insensitivity to fellow comrades in the government.
LDP has consistently questioned Musa's leadership of the state BN, to which Sabah Umno responded by demanding the LDP "return" its Merotai seat to Umno for being "ungrateful".
All started from beginning of the Mazu Statue project....Chong, clearly angered by Musa for passing the blame on his ministry, promptly resigned in protest as tourism minister and said at a press conference later that he "helped put him (Musa) up, and I can bring him down".
Datuk Peter Pang, Deputy Chief Minister from LDP, resigned from his party, though a blow to LDP, was expected according to party sources.
Another Raymond Tan type for Gerakan?
