Those dark secrets of Mahathir’s regime will not stay hidden forever but he will do his best to make it so! To do this he must have power himself or control over those that wield power.
Mahathir had nothing on Pak Lah. Nothing he could have used. Yes Pak Lah had his faults but he did not knowingly involve himself in corruption, in money politics and certainly no weaknesses of the flesh. There simply was nothing that Mahathir could throw at Pak Lah that would stick…. until after the last General Elections. After UMNO abject performance at the polls Mahathir went after Pak Lah with the same vengeance he went after Anwar. It was vintage Mahathir –a man so consumed by hatred and evil that I marveled at how these UMNO goons need no help from us to destroy themselves!
Everything that a spoilt child does when throwing tantrums Mahathir did…whimpering, pleading, jumping up and down, holding his breath (but not long enough!) …..but Pak Lah ignored these tantrums completely. He did not offer Mahathir a cookie to keep quiet. Did not throw water on Mahathir’s face when he held his breath until he was unconscious. And did not reward Mahathir with a hug even when he went away. He simply ignored the old man. And Pak Lah could not be moved because he was clean, honest and had done his best for the country – in as far as he could.
Najib is God’s gift to Mahathir. I have said before then when you have a man by his balls, his heart and mind will follow! With Altantuya hanging over his head only the Prime Minister could save him. And he was not Prime Minister! Mahathir had by then ceased to have any serious political influence. He was like a puppy snapping harmlessly at nothing in particular. The day that Najib persuaded himself that an early ascent to the Prime Minister’s post was an attractive proposition was the day that Mahathir got his second lease in his political life. And he went about reviving himself with relish. Najib will certainly come to rue the day when he allowed Mahathir to once again dominate his life.
Mahathir had preferred to have Ministers who are flawed with personal greed and other human weaknesses working under him, as they would do as they were told. Any dissent would mean you are out of a job quicker then you can say MACC. Najib was one of these Ministers. And now it looks like it would be just like old times.
This Chairman Of Risda – the one who is still awaiting trial and judgment for having sex with an underage girl Malay girl - today suggested Mahathir be given the post of Senior Minister in Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s cabinet. If anything you must give credit to Mahathir for timing and having the decency to not rush things. His son is in Cabinet. Najib is beginning to settle down in his job. All is quiet on the western front. Time for the old man to move back into contention and secure himself a position where he is most comfortable at….looking over the shoulders of Najib.
If Mahathir can make Putrajaya, KLCC and KLIA happen – he can make 1Malaysian F1 Team happen! Of course he can! All it takes is a few billion dollars over the next two or three years. And when we count the cost many years from now of this lunacy to invest in something as unsustainable as F1 where will Mahthir be?
Are we going to let this happen again? Yes we can bring all these criminals to justice eventually but have we not have enough of their crimes now? Here we have a man equally dedicated to wrecking havoc on our country finances whether under himself or Najib being given the opportunity and power to do so again! Are we mad to allow this to happen? Mahathir more then anybody else have held to the belief that the ends justify the means. Does Najib think he will rest until his son is Prime Minister? And that would mean getting Muhyiddin and Hishamuddin out of the way as soon as it is possible. That Chairman of Risda as DPM? Heavens forbid!
We can ask who knew what, who did what and who failed in their duty - but this will not possible until the nation have again lost billions. We have not seen the end of Mahathir. Of that I am absolutely sure. What I know is that what this Chairman of Risda has just suggested that Najib should do is not the last act of this manipulative Mahathir. Najib is no match for him. God help our country for our government certainly will not!
