Apa lagi 'reformasi-istas' mahu?

TMI's editorial in Can Dr Mahathir, political foes unite against Najib?

apa lagi Cina mahu?
kepimpinan saya?


TMI extracts: Let's face it, the likes of Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, Mohamed Sabu, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail or Lim Guan Eng cannot bring the pact back to what it was in the 2008 and 2013 election campaigns.

KT comment: Missing the manmanlai virtuoso of Anwar in providing the glue for Pakatan? Hmmm ... I'm happy to concede to Anwar's political virtuoso but would also say he subsequently furnished the 'ungluing' as well, starting with PKR's selfish Kajang Move.

So, some of the opposition leaders are hoping that Dr Mahathir will be able to bring some measure of unity and create a national wave across the country – defeating Najib and his BN colleagues as they have done in 2008 and 2013.

KT comment: Actually Mahathir had been the one enabling the Pakatan victory in 2008 following his then-continuous undermining of AAB. Thanks to him, BN lost its 2/3 majority. Thanks to his self-centred self-interest selfish petulance against AAB, he demolished BN (fresh from a landslide victory in 2004) sufficiently, one example being to awaken the traditionally pro-BN Chinese and indirectly convince them to go for broke and switched over to Pakatan.

The Pakatan victory in 2013 enjoyed then-existing momentum from 2008 with more fence-sitters committing themselves to Pakatan.

That is a tall order but they had done in the past as it was almost all straight fights. But the next elections could be different if they remain fractious and continue sniping at each other. Hence the need for Dr Mahathir as much as the country's longest-serving prime minister needs them to oust another of his successors.

KT comment: Certainly Mahathir can still wreck havoc on BN (essentially UMNO) but that's assuming Najib will be lying down quietly with his leg kang-kang just waiting to be politically shagged. Najib is most dangerous when cornered. And what part will PAS play to throw a spanner into a Mahathir-led federal opposition?

However, the big hump to overcome is whether the architect of the destruction of Malaysia's once proud and independent institutions should acknowledge his past sins. Because it will be a bumpy ride If he still believes in the principles of the Frank Sinatra hit song "My Way" and not bother about his record in office.

KT comment: The Pakatan argument is that PM Najib is really really really bad and thus is its No 1 priority to remove from Putrajaya.

Najib is so bad that Pakatan is willing to deal with a far more bad bloke, the baddest hombre in town, if that's what it takes to topple depose and unseat Najib.

Yes, even if the baddest guy in our Malaysian political history was (is?) a, nay, The Devil of Malaysian politics, an enemy, it doesn't matter 'cause of the current Priority No 1, namely Najib.

So deal with the Devil if necessary.

Ignore his 929 and 617 Declarations which by his singular fiat turned secular Malaysia into a fundamentalist Islamic nation (if not constitutionally at least politically and in parts, administratively).

Ignore his emasculation of the judiciary, ignore his politicisation of the civil service, ignore everything he had f**kup in two decades,

Ignore his culture of divisive politics, institutional intimidation and profligate administration of our nation, yes, minta mudah lupa sedikitlah because we're so lucky, so very lucky to get his help, even if his help is principally for the personal benefits of his own sons.

So let's do a Faustian Pact, but what is that, you may ask?

Wikipedia informs us Christian legend has it that some centuries ago Dr Faust traded his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge. The term “strike a Faustian bargain” means the person trading with the devil is willing to sacrifice anything to satisfy a limitless desire for knowledge or power. Wikipedia goes on to explain:

According to traditional Christian belief in witchcraft, the pact is between a person and Satan or a lesser demon. The person offers his or her soul in exchange for diabolical favours. Those favours vary by the tale, but tend to include youth, knowledge, wealth, fame, or power. [...]

Nevertheless, the bargain is considered a dangerous one, as the price of the Fiend's service is the wagerer's soul. The tale may have a moralizing end, with eternal damnation for the foolhardy venturer.

So DAP, what happened to Anthony Loke's rebuke of Muhyiddin's and Mahathir's so-called 'reforms' (bearing in mind Anwar had also talked about 'reforms', wakakaka), saying those in UMNO opposed to Najib have only been pandai NATO saje (No Action Talk Only)?

Loke was asking what the TMI editorial asked about the Mahathir-Muhyiddin's professed 'reforms' starting with the point as to ... whether the architect of the destruction of Malaysia's once proud and independent institutions should acknowledge his past sins. Because it will be a bumpy ride If he still believes in the principles of the Frank Sinatra hit song "My Way" and not bother about his record in office.

Will there be a Faustian Pact by Pakatan, nay, make that the DAP?

Amen in advance, wakakaka.

  1. Mahathir is making use of the opposition for his quest to topple Najib, and vice versa; both parties intend to discard each other afterwards.

    As for "... whether the architect of the destruction of Malaysia's once proud and independent institutions should acknowledge his past sins" - FAT HOPES! You expect a person who thinks he is some sort of a sage/luminary/oracle to admit there are skeletons in his closet?

    Mahathir is a spent force, no one will follow him out of UMNO. The Malays still treat UMNO as their saviour party, so Mahathir's efforts will not likely make much of a dent. And as they say Najib will be most dangerous when cornered, Mahathir will have his wings clipped ...

    Repost of my "PLIGHT OF THE OLD MAN"
    Sung to the tune of Copacabana (Barry Manilow)

    His name is Mahathir, he was the PM,
    But that was 20 years ago, when he used to run the show
    Now it's Najib, but not for Mahathir,
    Still trying to wield the clout he used to have,
    Faded crown on his head
    He sits there so refined, and wallows in his past glories
    He lost his youth and he lost his clout
    Now will he lose his freedom ?...

    At the Buloh, Sungai Buloh
    The hottest place north of Kay El
    At the Buloh, Sungai Buloh
    Where Anwar is also a resident
    At the Bulohhh...,
    Don't mess with Najib

  2. latest pc made by the ex-dpm/ex umno (baru) president & 11.00hrs today.

    dia akan kekal dalam umno, so that he will rectify all the wrongs in the party from within. pak syeikh said the same thing manny yrs ago...hehe.

    i was hoping he would name those pemimpin2 utama who approached him about their 'unhappiness' over ahjibgor & his wife's misconduct. lagi lagi keluar statement.

  3. Has not Mahathir done enough damage to the country and the people?

    If there is any need to dethrone Najib, Mahathir should not be in the equation .....

  4. ...... and in the last few months Zaid Ibrahim too has been very inconsistent. Thus do not take his grumblings seriously......

  5. ....... and to PKR i has this remind...... dont be too naive with Mahathir......... be careful.....he just need one chance to hammer the final nail and bury your coffin for good.

  6. Najib is here to stay,at least for the next two or three GE's.Thanks to the fuckups of the PR.Mr Manmanlai and Azmin are the main culprits,as they are they claimed to be the leaders of the pack.

  7. "I think Anwar should thank Dr Mahathir for sacking him in 1998. It shows (that) it is proven that all the accusations that Dr Mahathir brought against him (Anwar) for whatever wrongdoing he (Anwar) did were right. By supporting Dr Mahathir, he admits to whatever allegations Dr Mahathir made in 1998,”
    ---Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek

    Wow. Impeccable logic, don't you think so?

  8. Anwar will be freed when JAKIM caught Azmin sleeping with Mahathir.........wakaka.....wakaka......wakaka
