Was it really necessary?

The invitation by NGO Sukaguam for Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak to speak at a scheduled event this morning in PWTC turned ugly when Police advised him not to turn up and when Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad took the rostrum instead, he stopped to continue.

Two wrongs won’t make it right. This morning, there were a little more than two wrongs which made everything as a major embarrassment.

A ‘By invitation only’ event made viralled in the social media. Poor door management. Poor crowd control. Poor security for the facility. Amongst other flaws.

Worse still, it was in the convention centre which had been the symbol and pride of UMNO for the last 30 years.In short, it was another ordinary event with the usual VIPs and probably most of the same recognisable crowd (give and take a fews odd blokes).

The perception and net outcome of this morning’s misfortunate turned of events is far reaching.
