Many Bolehlanders see Matthias Chang as Mahathir's obedient poodle. I don't know and I don't want to know.
But this guy must be shouting through his nose for blaming Musa Hitam for all the ills plaguing Bolehland today.
That was one Musa tale few Bolehlanders worth their salt would buy into.
Who would believe that a man so long out of power could still hold so much sway and influence over the affairs of the country today?
If Musa still holds so much power over what happens today after being out of office so for long, why could not Mahathir who had himself been the Pm holding all the powers in his hands for 22 long donkey years when Musa himself was out of office and any position of influence?
Why if Musa held the power, how come Mahathir was able to work the downfall of Badawi and help Najib take over the premiership instead?
To Matthias, it seems that everything Mahathir did could not be wrong. We don't want to disillusion him though.
A man is entitled to some leeway if he wants to believe what he believes in, whether those are clearly tenable or not.
But what is happening today is largely a consequence of what Mahathir had done.
Putting in place a dysfunction system that hardly encourages accountability or responsible governance - emasculating the judiciary and cowing others.
Concentrating all the powers in the hands of the Pm.
Of course, that does not excuse Najib for bringing the country to the brink
