Mahathir Mohammad, the great strategist has done it ‘his way’. He’s deserted (resigned) from the sinking ship – UMNO. Let’s see how many rats and worms will be squirming out of their shit holes to follow suit.
But don’t worry fellas, he’ll be back when he can get his way again. That would mean the resignation of Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and the beginning of Malaysia’s dark ages – Najib Tun Razak’s premiership.
Those who want this likely scenario to happen will desert the sinking party as well. And those who do not (want this likely scenario) will want to see Pakatan Rakyat or rather Anwar Ibrahim quickly take over the federal government. Which also means, either cross-overs or buy-overs.
The only thing that we can be sure of is that there will be more corruption, more money politics. Everyone’s either trying to buy-over or counter-offer. There’ll be some selling as well. And some who will just go for free. Is there a three-in-one or buy-one-get-one-free offer as well?
Which makes me think, how much are we worth as a nation?
At last, we are worth nothing. For who are the losers – the people, of course! So much for people’s power.
But my observation is that this man who ruled the country for 22 years has mis-read the political situation so many times – for example, he thinks that Abdullah will resign after the bad performance in the last GE – where he (Mahathir) has a hand in swaying UMNO members to vote for the Opposition. But Dollah stood his ground.
He had his son Mukriz and others call for Dollah’s resignation – still the man stood his ground. He turned his back on Najib thinking that the latter would abandon Dollah or fight him outright but Dollah managed to stand his ground – with Najib’s arm twisted behind his back.
He continued his mud-slinging, fiery criticisms and name calling – and what came out of it? A 191-page royal commission report on Lingam-gate or executive interference in judicial appointments, where there is a possibility that Mahathir and his cronies will be charged in court.
Wow. So many possibilities. The best would be another general elections. As so many rats are tripping over each other to abandon the sinking ship, the current government who rules by simple majority would be left with no choice but to seek re-election.
Wouldn’t that be the best scenario? Then we’ll see who the real winners are. I hope that in the process, UMNO will be wiped out forever.
The possibility of UMNO being wiped out forever is simply to marvelous for me. That is why people, there is reason to celebrate ! Who cares if Mahathir leaves UMNO! That’s the greatest news so far! So rejoice again and again and again, I say rejoice !
