This kind of blackmail is typical of how UMNO is afraid of losing support so they bend backwards to help even if they don't deserve it or did nothing to resolve their own shortcomings. Always threatening to withdraw support if they don't get their way. So damn childish. If I'm not mistaken this government is a pleaser to be assured of retaining power. In a real sense they are held to ransom by groups who don't deserve any sympathy or aid. The government is more respected if they stand firm to what are legally and morally binding in the interest of the rest of law abiding population.
