Traitor. berita korang pun tak beringat dulu Yes.. Kezaliman umno Utusan paper umno. Umno kecundang sbb tknk dgr teguran bekas presiden umno. Utusan kecundang sbb syarikat tak buat keuntungan hasil dr laporan berita berat sebelah dgn kutukan kpd bekas presiden umno setiap hari sblm pru14. Bisnes kalau rugi bankrupt la jawabnye. Semoga bertabah.
Dah lambat kawan. This is what happens if you live on crutches. Where is the dignity in this. Better you die! Where is Awang Selamat and his wise advice?

Seems like the staff being hung out to dry by their very master, spineless yet want to fight for dignity? Sorry, when there was none, what to fight for?
