Apa Lagi Mahathir Mahu? What More Does Mahathir Want?

Mahathir wants to kick out Najib, like he wanted Badawi out.

With Badawi, it was easy. Mahathtir left the UMNO he himself formed.

Badawi walked.

With Ah Jib, it is a little more problematic.

Leaving UMNO Baru again does not quite work the same kind of magic with Najib.

Mahathir himself laments so often that to Ah Jib, cash is king.

Don't know.

But not taking issue if you said cash can do crazy things.

Like it can buy you allegiance.

And help entrench yourself.

Cash is what makes the world go round anyway.

It can seal your mouth.

And make you blind to the bad.

And drool with madness and speak the untruth?

Or babble like an idiot.

Unseeing and unconcerned, except for more of the intoxicating juice.

That's what people will say about what money can do.

But we are not talking of money or cash.

We are talking about what more does Mahathir want?

If all Mahathir wants is to see Najib out as the Pm, that is not going to change Bolehland's fate.

Because whomever from dUMNo takes over as the Pm, it will be the same old same old.

They don't say dUMNo is an ossified dinosaur for nothing.

It is so set in its ways that change is no longer part of its DNA.

Bolehland needs to vote out the dinosaur and consign it into the dustbin of history for any meaningful change to take place.

The new guy or gal who becomes the Pm must be a no-nonsense person.

He or she must be able to reform the public institutions, the law enforcement agencies and the judiciary.  And return independence to them.

And restore the rakyat's confidence in the nation's institutions.

He or she must be able to put the fear of the devil into the hearts of the corrupt and those who would abuse their positions for personal gain.

Or resort to playing the race and religion card.

He or she must himself or herself be squeaky clean. That will rule out quite a few who have been bandied about as potential Pm.

And race should not be the determinant of who can become the Pm.

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...
