Laporan terbaru Guinesss Anchor melaporkan keuntungan berjumlah RM64.6 juta selepas cukai bagi suku kedua 2011. Ia menunjukkan kenaikan keuntungan sebanyak 47% berbanding suku kedua 2010.
Hairan kita ya. Kalau benarlah UMNO ni memperjuangkan Islam, bagaimana pula syarikat arak di Malaysia boleh mencatat keuntungan yang bertambah-tambah.
Padahal termaktub dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia bahawa agama persekutuan adalah agama Islam. Di dalam kesibukan UMNO mendakwa Malaysia sebuah negara Islam, syarikat arak mencatat keuntungan berlipat-lipat ganda.
Inilah satu lagi bukti betapa UMNO ini sebuah parti lidah bercabang.
