Why Tun MM wants Pak Lah to Resign

It does not take a rocket scientist to analyse or try to theorise his motives despite what is being said and done.

1) Pak Lah was given a huge mandate in the 2004 elections, a tsunami victory as a popular phrase nowadays goes. Only one state seat in Kelantan seperated that result from a complete and comprehensive victory.
4 years down that road what did the rakyat get? Nothing tangible. The rakyat did not want great rewards, all it wanted was a continuation of peace and prosperity and in their expectations in Pak Lah's open style. Work with me he asked. Work with what? Nothing tangible.
2)Any politician worth his salt would have tendered or offerred his resignation if he or she could not even deliver his home state in any election anywhere in the world. Not forthcoming even worse still, not even considered.
3)Ditto above after losing an unprecedented 4 ruling states (Kelantan being already in the opposition).
and subsequently
4)He was the only PM in my memory who has had 2 Mentris Besar officially rejected by our royal state Rulers.
and presently
5)A leader must a firm and seen to be one and be able to reign in any discontent. While I am grateful for our brothers and sisters in East Malaysia for returning BN to power,
is not the arm twisting for more benefits (while worthy and not unreasonable) by the Sabah leaders in Parliament an act of disloyalty in the spirit of BN convention and yet they are allowed to do so.
I can give many other reasons like the bread and butter issues but why cross the bridge when a crooked one has not been built (pun intended).

UMNO and the Emperor With New Clothes

The reaction and comments of those clinging to power now in UMNO to Tun Mahathir's quit decision is not only laughable it is downright hilarious. It is ironic and sad that I once had very high regards for some of them. Needless for me to say who they are. I liken the situation in UMNO to the story of the 'Emperor's New Clothes'. I am sure many will understand my analogy. Long may our Tun Mahathir live.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad: Pengumuman Keluar Dari UMNO

Dr Mahathir Mohamad: Pengumuman Keluar Dari UMNO
UMNO had treated Malaysia's finest leader with such disrespect and it comes as no surprise. The whole political landscape has changed dramatically for all BN supporters who had given our Tun undivided support all these years.I am sure most will agree with me that after the election fiasco many are still bewildered and still in a state of shock except the present leadership.They have not given any indication or any pro active decisions to reverse the negative feelings and perceptions that is prevalent among us the BN loyalists. Again I ask when was the last time you felt good about your country and now I answer - when our beloved Tun was our leader.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad: The Appointment of Judges

Dr Mahathir Mohamad: The Appointment of Judges

If there is a crisis of confidence of the judiciary as widely claimed and hence a commission to appoint, is this not an attack on the independence and integrity of the present judiciary? Are we to ask all the Federal, Appeal and High court judges to resign and be reappointed by this commission?
