Umno is like a drowning man clutching at a floating straw to save his life, says Hishamuddin Yahaya.
The BN has failed to explain the Constitution and the so-called Social Contract to the people, says Hishamuddin Yahaya.
Anwar had planned to push for accountability and good governance from within Umno – but he was sacked from the party at lightning speed, recalls Hishamuddin Yahaya.
Hishamuddin Yahaya says racial sloganeering could become irrelevant if a new government takes over that is better able to promote democracy and socio-economic and cultural justice.

The seeds of independence had been sowed long before the existence of Umno, notes Hishamuddin Yahaya. This is a tribute to the unsung heroes of the Merdeka struggle.
In the light of the recent Abolish ISA rally, during which close to 600 people were arrested, Hishamuddin Yahaya takes comfort in the assurance that people power will ultimately win the day. Don’t underestimate their commitment and tenacity, he says.
Tok Bahaman, Mat Kilau, Tok Gajah and Tok Janggut were dubbed “traitors” by the British and Chin Peng and his followers were dubbed “terrorists”, observes Hishamuddin Yahaya.
