He who serves rotten sardines should not yuck it.

There was once a place where not many dare tread simply because it was a dark place, plagued with all the diseases of darkness. None dare to even be seen at the doors of this dark place, what more to be seen in it.

Then came a power crazy man who saw how this dark place could be exploited to his own gains. He began surrounding himself with people who had on the sly been regular visitors to this dark abyss.

He allowed them to go to this place in the open. He let them party day and night. He got his lieutenants to protect these visitors to the dark place. He allowed free access to this devil's heaven.

He was so successful that he could not see that this darkness had infected all in his circle. The disease has become their flesh and blood. It was this darkness that emboldened these disciples to unseat him.

The new leader chose to also rule from this dark chamber. He also chose to surround himself with dark sycophants. He created fiefdoms and elected friendly disciples as lords.

Now the former ruler, the one who paved the once dark and treacherous roads, that led to this dark abyss, with golden tarmac and lit them up with so much glitz is accusing his successor of glamorising darkness.

If Confucious was alive today then the fortune cookies industry would have another saying:

"He who serves rotten sardines should not yuck it".

He embraced the darkness and allowed it to engulf him. So dark, cannot see! Blinded by the years in the dark hole. Cannot differentiate between the black that was of his own doing and that was not.

A perfect description of his malady.

He so embraced the darkness that he is now blind to his own sin. He still thinks that he is the savior of UMNO and that it was his successor that was responsible for this darkness.
