Would Khairy go for the kill?

So for KJ (Khairy Jamaluddin) to say that the country is suffering fromtrust deficit and the crisis of confidence is nothing out of the ordinary. What would be out of the ordinary is his solution to the problem.Would he dare to lead the charge of the light brigade to topple Mohd Najib and rebuild public trust and confidence? Or would he continue to dither, waver, vacillate, falter and hesitate?

Crude speech

Why do you lie to three million Umno members? The party president had lied to us. Don't say three million members support you. I hope the supreme council sends Najib for treatment. I support BN. For God, I am an Umno member. No matter what happens, I will vote for BN. I am critical because I love BN. I love Umno. Do not question my loyalty to BN and Umno. But you can see our president is lying to us every day. On television, he is talking nonsense.
