Tun Mahathir will say anything to get himself in position to help Mukhriz!
Tun Mahathir’s latest in his ever expanding desperation move is more bizarre than his vanishing billions into thin air.
These days Tun Mahathir is talking about political assassination; namely his.
As they are fond of saying in the USA; ‘Hello’
Come on let’s get real, this is Malaysia not exactly a place known as the hotbed of political assassinations.
It certainly seems that the once mighty has fallen so low that he (Mahathir) is trying to garner sympathy support for his failing bid at a comeback.
Remember his crying out that he is more popular than Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak? Subsequent elections squelched that thought very quickly.
Then there was the cry that the government is keeping his Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) from being registered.
However when the registration of PPBM went through, he could not use his political martyre card. Some are wondering, if he will use the PPBM log or fly under the PKR logo.
Now he is talking about being marked for assassination; at the age of 90+.
But not getting any tears or believers over that he has come up with the idea that his plane has been sabotaged; again with the idea of wanting him out of the way.
Somewhere in Mahathir’s delusions, he believes that he is still a political force to be reckoned with in the 14th general election.
However the sad reality is the man (Mahathir) whose rule over Malaysia eclipsed two decades no longer commands the stage as he had in the pass. Now people show up to at his events out of curiosity; proving crowd size doesn’t always matter.
Unless Tun Mahathir is totally surrounded by his press clippings from his time in office, he has to realize that not only is DAP-Pakatan in serious trouble, but he is as well as their is a good possibility that he may not win the Langkawi seat.
In Raja Petra Kamarudin’s (RPK) The Corridors of Power
“Mahathir is so desperate to win the Langkawi seat in the 9th May 2018 general election. This is supposed to be the safest seat in Malaysia for him and if he loses Langkawi he is doomed. So, Mahathir will resort to anything to win — even lie, cheat and bribe if necessary. Mahathir is prepared to even buy votes by bribing each voter RM1,000 if need be. And all it will cost him is RM20 million to buy enough votes to win, which is nothing to save losing face plus much more.”
