What's up Bolehlanders? You guys voted for change by kicking out the old toxic regime and yet instead of encouraging the Pakatan Harapan government to cooperate and work together, you jokers are trying to drive a wedge between Anwar and Mahathir.
Every move of Anwar is seen as further proof of an ambitious and untrustworthy Pm in waiting's unholy haste to take over from Mahathir.
Come on, surely you don't expect Anwar to crawl into a hole and wait for daddy's call?
Anwar has every right to have his say and do as he wants just like you do too. Whether you agree with him or not is another thing. But stop trying to pit him against your hero Maha.
You can support whomever you like but it is never a good thing to put a person on a high pedestal and close your hearts and your thinking caps against everyone else. It is this kind of blind worship that had led to the toxic regime you just voted out.
The hero worship of Mahathir has reached a comical level!
If the report that Mahathir might be thinking of transferring giant GLCs like Khazanah, Petronas and others from the Finance Ministry's purview to the Economic Affairs Ministry under Azmin in order to elevate Azmin's stature vis-a-vis Anwar is true, it is precisely the kind of politics Mahathir should eschew and not indulge in.
Not in his second coming and at his age. Mahathir should concentrate on his job of ringing in the changes the rakyat had voted for and hand over the premiership to Anwar as had been agreed to, like a gentleman should.
Not now coming out to say that he might be holding on as the Pm for longer than 2 years because the 2 years stipulation was not an agreement written in stone.
So how long would Mahathir want to stay on as the Pm then? 3 years, 4 years or 5 years? Because Mahathir, and everyone else who blindly support him, could always justify it by claiming that his job is still to be completed.
Remember, there is bad blood betweeen Anwar and Mahathir.
When Mahathir saw Anwar as a threat to his position during the economic crisis of 1998, he conveniently sacked Anwar. Then got Anwar charged with sodomising his wife's driver. A charge you might believe in, but not the General Hospital doctor who first examined the alleged victim. The doctor, in effect, said nyet, nyet eleh penetration, eleh sodomy! Now, you might want to ask yourselves why a government doctor would risk his career for not going along.
At the trial, if I recall, during his cross-examination, the alleged victim denied that he had been sodomised. That part of the testimony, again if I am not mistaken, was expunged! But the embarrassment caused led the prosecution to amend the charge to one of abuse of power for which Anwar was finally convicted. Not too sure how Anwar was also convicted of sodomy. But check this out
The thing is that, even today, Mahathir does not own up to anything. As to the 1MDB scandal, Mahathir said there were evidence aplenty. But as to the sodomy thing, Mahathir said he heard it from others. Haha, hearsay is not even admimisible in a court of law!
The longer the time the premiership baton passes to Anwar, the more intolerable the situation gets with you guys always happily playing the devils.
And why are you guys so afraid of Anwar taking over? Didn't you fellows boast that the real power lies in your hands? Well, show the country that you are not chicken. Let Anwar take over and if you do not like what he does as the Pm, vote him out!
Remember that what you have been able to do to eventually vote out the old toxic regime came about all because Anwar had the guts to fight a regime that was even then becoming arrogant and toxic. It was a long 20 years battle.
Mahathir came in when he realised that the groundwork had been done and all he had to do was to lead.
Give your hero Maha the space to do his job but stop bugging him with conspiracy theories. And extend to Anwar the same courtesy too, even if you do not like what you see or hear.
You can criticise Anwar but don't pit him against your hero. And by all means, call your hero to account too where he isn't doing right.
What the nation needs most is not blind hero worship.
Update: Haha...a patriot from Aussieland trying to pit daughter against father for Bolehland's sake
