Tun Dr Mahathir has admitted to the turnabouts on matters such as his views on Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, but denied he did so from fear of being prosecuted. His paradigm shifts were instead motivated by his desire to challenge those whom he accused of stealing from the country. He also said his turnabout on Anwar was not his first, saying he had done so “long before” he finally agreed to support the latter to become prime minister, despite previously saying that Anwar must never rise to the position. “In the effort to destroy the demon, I found common ground… Read more »
Najib said Tun M ‘tak boleh pakai’ and claimed that a portion of 1MDB’s revenue is used for various initiatives to help the people, which range from housing to education. But 1MDB cannot even service its loans and bonds! Already it is depending now on China bail out. So is there any profits from the revenue especially when the capital is almost gone – most of the RM 42 billion. Most of the 1MDB capital of RM 42 billion has been siphoned out … and what is left is being squeezed in the name of donation and service. This is… Read more »
KJ should choose between politics and polo https://www.malaysiakini.com/letters/387968 Today Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin spoke about certain political leaders who, in his mind, need to retire. I think his reasons for their retirement is flawed. In our Malaysian context which is that of a maturing democracy, the benchmark for continuing to be in politics is the ability of the person to serve the best interests of the people and the nation. So when a politician is seen to be serving the narrow interests of his or her own party or even worse his or her own personal desires, or… Read more »
The voters better don’t have too much HOPE with Mahathir or Najib in power to avoid disappointments later.
Just make sure all of you have enough savings to go thru hardships when nation on the brink of collapsing, sad but true.
Just read a report that 3 out of 4 Malaysians have little savings to fork out RM1000 immediately when face with financial emergency.
Rehabilitation through incremental concession when cornered? What about the wasted, diverted and missing hundreds of billions of RM, conflict of interest, political rigging, neglect, apartheid, tyranny, brutality, torture, etc.? How much has this super-champion of Bumi’s helped them in meaningful (lasting) ways?
Najib latest vitriol against Mahathir proved he is running scared. Anwar-Mahathir combo can beat Najib-Hadi combo including their UMNO-PAS union
Zahid Hamidi said Mahathir had gone overboard in his criticisms of Umno and the government to the point Najib had run out of patience.
“His (Mahathir’s) time is past, be quiet. Sit down and recite religious verses (to Allah). He unveils the flaws of the present leaders, don’t forget we also used to cover his flaws. Don’t let it be our turn to show his shame and ‘scabs’. There is so much that we can reveal.
“He (Mahathir) was strong (during his tenure) not because of him but because the Umno members strongly supported him,” he continued.
Putting a twist on PM Najib’s infamous “Chinese tsunami” theory, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president Muhyiddin Yassin said Umno faces a “Malay tsunami” sweeping through the heartlands that used to be Umno strongholds. Muhyiddin said Malays in the rural areas, which have been the traditional Umno vote bank, are warming up to Bersatu, forcing Umno to use its divisional annual general assembly platforms to attack Bersatu. The rural malays are now beginning to realise the real corrupted matters surrounding 1MDB and Felda. 6% swing of Felda malay votes to Pakatan will mean Umno will lose the foothold in many parlimentary… Read more »
