Is Saving dUMNo The Same As Saving The Nation?

Ah Jib is under siege to step down as the Pm.

He is busy trying to stave off the threat to his position by trying to show that he still has the support of Bolehalnders to stay on as the Pm.

But what would appear more like rented crowds and staged applauses won't help him Now, going by the news, even members of his own Cabinet are not all behind him on 1MDB.

The albatross around the nation's neck that the sovereign fund seems to have become, threatens
not only to bring down the Pm but also to drag down the nation.

Bolehlanders want to see the back of Ah Jib as the Pm to save the nation.

Mahathir wants Ah Jib to go to save dUMNo.

But is saving dUMNo the same as saving the nation?

Honestly, no by a long shot. In fact, saving dUMNo would be antithetical to saving the nation.

dUMNO has become so set in its old ways that whoever takes over the leadership won't be able to do anything to change it.

Yes, for a start he can, and will have to, 'wayang' a little - perhaps arrest some big shots to show that he is serious about accountability and all the bull about change for the better and then just let things fizzle out in the courts like Badawi did when he took over from Mahathir.

That would do to convince enough credulous people Bolehlanders to vote for dUMNo again.

Once back in the seat of power, the whole cycle of  dUMNo politics of patronage, race, religion, entitlement and money will repeat itself.

Only, things will get worse. Because the longer you resist change, the worse things get.

So, while Bolehlanders do want Ah Jib to go, it would be better that he stays on as the Pm until the next general election while he and his administration continue to lose their way.

The only hope for Bolehland is a complete break from the past and a fresh start with the opposition as the government of the day.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
