Dr Mahathir Ousted. Umno Leaders Rejoice While You Can. Await The Backlash.

So there you have it. The old man lost out. Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia's most famous son, former PM and international leader of great repute and respect failed in his bid to become a mere delegate of the Kubang Pasu Umno division.

The defeat speaks volumes of the cowardice and mean-spiritedness of the current leadership. Having no guts to face his tirade and accusations, whether justified or not, they browbeat the division which he had lead for decades and coerced them to betray him. How many pieces of silver changed hands, we do not know. The going rate 2000 years ago was 30, but taking into account inflation it must have multiplied ten thousand fold.

If Pak Lah and his band of men are happy with this turn of events then I have to caution them. Don't start celebrating too early. You had unnecessarily riled an already smouldering giant by refusing to answer his questions openly and transparently, hiding behind the cloak of 'elegant silence.' To add insult to injury you have 'moulded' the minds of the ingrates in Kubang Pasu to result in this ignominious defeat for Mahathir.

Wait now all of you whose hands are dirtied in this shameful episode, the backlash I'm sure is not too far away.

In the meanwhile, oh you ungrateful denizens of Kubang Pasu, sleep peacefully tonight while reciting these three words again and again - Melayu Mudah Lupa, Melayu Mudah Lupa, Melayu Mudah Lupa. For that's what you are, nothing more.

Dr Mahathir is a one-man-army.

If he wants to do something, he will go to any extent to accomplish his intentions. He will not pay heed to competition or rivals no matter how formidable they may be.

I doubt that this event will humble him. It might even exacerbate the rebel in him to lash out at the government even more.

I think Mahathir had already expected to lose this party delegate election. The odds are stacked against him from the start. If he had won, thats a bonus - he gets to say what he wants to say. Now in losing, Umno members will be wondering what the heck is it that Badawi is trying to hide. Sometimes the question of "what is it that he wants to tell us" is more damaging than the actual words themselves. Mahathir is the root cause of all this, no doubt about that. The problem for the current administration is that he is playing chess while the sleepy Badawi is playing checkers.

As I said in an earlier comment in your blog, it is very unfair to push out Mahathir in this way. Although I am not his fan he still has a right to speak out and be heard by umno delegates.

Cukup la tu. Tolongla jangan jadi batu api. Cara menghormati TDM ialah menasihati beliau berehat terus dari politik. Beliau sudah tidak ada banyak masa lagi.Untuk TDM yang saya hormati, cukup la tu.
