Of course my commentaries on his 'couple of paragraphs' might emerge 'out of context' but WTF, who cares, wakakaka.
Sometimes it's fun this way, because I can then go any which way, but look, if you want to enjoy full context of what RPK has written, visit his blog and don't kacau me, okay? Wakakaka.
The following extracts from his post are:
Those in the know knew that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ‘had plans’ for Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak when soon after the May 2013 general election the former started criticising the latter. At first it was a ‘mild criticism’ and basically ‘recycled’ issues that had earlier been used against Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi from 2006 to 2009.
I am now adviser to Petronas
alamak lah, siapa rugi? hehehe
It was clear that Mahathir was just testing the waters to see how far he could go with attacking Najib. When it was apparent that the criticism was not gaining any momentum, Mahathir had to step back a bit and reconsider his strategy. He cannot attack Najib the way he had attacked Abdullah and hope that the Prime Minister would step down.
Najib was not going to step down like Abdullah did. Najib would need to be ousted or pushed out. And it has to be with great force against the backdrop of very serious charges.
Presumably those initially 'mild criticisms' must have been about:
- the crooked bridge
- removal of someone's grandoise projects, wakakaka
- kowtowing to Sing
- over-favouring the ungrateful Chinese
But given Najib's known inclination to avoid confrontation of any kind, as Zaid informed us, why did he obdurately or if you like, courageously hang on?
Could it be because:
- he was in reality a brave bloke
- he thought "F* Maddy" for being 'ungrateful' to the son of Razak who resurrected Maddy
- he was too thick to know Maddy wanted him out
- his wife cubit-ed him into staying?
Wakakaka. Let's analyse each one.
The possibility that he was a brave bloke would be contrary to what Zaid told us, that Najib has a mild nature, where he preferred and no doubt still prefers to avoid aggressive, aggravated and acrimonious confrontations.
That characteristic was confirmed by Moody who told us that when Najib wanted to sack him, the PM did not, could not look at Moody in the face. In fact it was left to Moody to ask "Am I being sacked?" to which Najib silently, and seemingly ashamed or embarrassed, nodded his head. OK, he was not brave or if you like, cowardly then, wakakaka.
Second point - given above, I doubt he would dare to think "F* Maddy". OK then, he was not even brave in his thoughts. Wakakaka.
Third point - I doubt he was that thick, precisely and especially as Zaid had informed us of his aversion to unpleasant discordance.
Such people are usually sensitive to criticisms by others so he would have known that he had fallen from Maddy's favour, a favour that was part of a Maddy's strategic sequence to see his scion become PM.
I hope you know the difference between the words 'strategic' and 'tactical'? Wakakaka. Anyway, I believe we can comfortably rule out any aggressive thoughts by Najib towards Maddy.
By the by, just a quickie, wakakaka - my Unc asked whether you guys know Ah Jib Gor's mum, Tun Rahah Noah?
yes, she's a Tun in her own rights
She's around 84 now, but the most unique thing about her is that EVERY Chinese (Tionghua) Ambassador, wakakaka, posted to Malaysia visited or will visit her as a virtual-mandatory courtesy call.
Do you want to know why? Try and guess dahulu lah, wakakaka.
Anyway, the message my Unc wanted to pass on is that if you want to know Najib's character, look at Rahah Noah's personality.
OK back on track, so where does that leave us regarding Mahathir's initial criticism of Najib gaining NIL traction?
