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
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.
