  1. Now, this is coming from just an ordinary member of the public.
    Mahathir is still fighting a battle but not a war.
    If he really want Najib and his team gone by tomorrow.
    To win a war, you really have to include the kitchen sink.

    Surprisingly this old doctor is still not reaching for broke.
    If he care to admit his past mistakes such as the VK Lingam scandal , the blatant & abusive usage of the I.S.A , the wastage from his numerous failed projects and that he now forgiven Anwar and that he have nothing against the gays. ( and all minorities)
    And to sincerely invite MCA ,MIC , NGOs , civil service etc and all fellow Malaysians to join him now to dispose the current despotic regime.
    Just some humility , honesty and humbleness, that is all it take. (Winston Churchill did that)
    No need to use Datuk Zaid and Mathias Chang.
    But of course, who are we to teach a 90 years old grandpa how to suck an egg?

  2. Tun Mahathir: We Have Not Seen All The Money That Has Been Invested, Where Is The Money?

    Tun Mahathir: BN Menang Bermakna Rakyat Kalah

    • After going to the moon for a quickie convenient marital honeymoon singing “I love you, you love me” comes GE, the faces can change faster than Beijing Opera’s Face Change Magic. Ask Jackie Chan how he learnt it.
      Sandiwara is truly a fine art of Political Traders.

  3. To stop the flow of our talents out of country, we need to support the right party. Ah Pek very sad seeing many old friends with their children grandchildren cari makan overseas.

    • From the experience of other countries, they (Overseas Malaysians and some of their
      foreign-born children) may come back if
      major political and policy changes happen e.g.
      Vietnamese (including those who fled as boat people) returning to invest in Vietnam,
      foreign-born Somalis going to the more peaceful areas of Somalia to start
      businesses, Mainland Chinese who have acquired foreign citizenship
      returning to invest and work in China etc.

      • Most Malaysians can and are able to lend a support to Harapan & Parti Amanah.
        Because the majority hated BN ( % from the previous General Election result said so)
        And furthermore, what better choices do we have?
        But there remain 2 main (but big issue) questions
        Are they for or against U.N. Universal Human Rights.
        Meaning – the grouping of Harapan is totally against or for protection & recognition of minorities (inclusive of LGBT rights)
        And to recognize that our Malaysian’s Constitution is Secular.
        Well, we do know some will argues that Malaysia is Islamic until they foams in their mouth.
        If Malaysia is truly “Islamic”, we would have full fledged Hudud since day one and no need to specifically include that Civil Law is Supreme.
        Yes, they the Harapan group need to address the 2 simple nagging issues in order to be totally different . Or we would be getting a raw deal.
        Raja Petra did a topic on that years ago, Harapan must assure us that the current Harapan is not another BN version2 which would be full with …
        Other than that, Good Luck to Amanah.

  4. In his latest interview with TIME magazine, Mahathir says he is back in the political fray as the country is turning to him for help.

    “I have no official position — I am a retiree. But people came to see me about how bad the Prime Minister is, [that] he has done many wrong things,” says Mahathir.

    “They kept on asking me, ‘Please do something, please do something.’ They could have gone to other people. But they think that other people would not be able to do anything, because they were afraid. I am afraid too.

    “But after many people had seen me, I decided that I would come out in the open and state my position as being opposed to [Najib] and I began to publicly criticise him. His administration takes actions that are very oppressive. We are seeing a very repressive government. I tried to talk to the Prime Minister but, unfortunately, he does not [heed] my views.”

  5. Indeed a surprise.
    Politic is fluid . More fluid than synthetic engine oil.
    But this is not something that never happened before or done before by somebody else.
    The late Tunku Abdul Rahman campaigned against Mahathir too.
    Good to know that Mahathir realizes his mistake with his chosen one (najib).
    He Mahathir should go 1 step further and that is to reset umno baru.
    Or take over from Anwar as De Facto leader of Pakatan.
    Or it is a bad idea, as he Mahathir is bringing his pet (or pest)….Ibrahim Ali of Perkasa.
    Mahathir really should clean up his own yard.
    What choice do we have?
