Well folks, our Former Premier Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad , who finds it hard to get main media attention nowadays because of his caustic verbal attacks against the Abdullah Badawi administration, is going to be getting his chance to be broadcasted live from the Grand River View Hotel, in Kota Bharu, Kelantan today at 2.30pm!
Log in to Malaysia Today at 2.30pm today, Sunday, the 6th of May, 2007.
Ironic, isn’t it? The man who ruled over us for 22 long years and known as Mahafir’aun by his nemesis in the Opposition especially by PAS @ Islamic Party of Malaysia now finds his platform of ‘Freedom to Speak’ in the only PAS ruled State of Kelantan!
Abdullah Badawi’s Mr.Clean image before this is now absolutely tarnished and corroded beyond repair attested by the way the Machap and Ijok by elections were ruthlessly marred by displays of state organised gangsterism and blatant vote buying as exposed in the internet!
Tun Dr.Mahathir is now tasting the consequences of his appointing the wrong man to succeed him as this nation’s Premier. The thing is , can we blame him for his screw up back in 2003?
Who else do we see having the mettle of being a viable candidate to take over from him? None!
I for one do not see any one today capable of running the show both from the BN or the BA!
Each and every politician seems to have his or her hand in the cookie jar so to speak.
Nik Aziz though being the Spiritual Advisor of the PAS party and already in his 80s still wants to clamp tight onto his hold of the Menteri Besar of Kelantan’s Seat of Power!
So do we see, all other dinosaurs in the ruling cabinet of the Barisan Nasional monopoly of the Government of Malaysia.
Malaysians have been returning the BN to power each and every time we have the General Elections since this country achieved Independence from the British Colonial Masters.
So, can we blame the BN for ruling as they please and getting complacent with abusing their hold of power over this nation of ‘yes’ men and women?
All the talk of overcoming the BN ends up as ‘murmurs in the wind’ when either by hook or crook, the BN keeps thrashing the lame challenge of the Opposition parties year after year by their overbearing approach to quell any dissent from the masses!
The Opposition with their ever present suspicion of each other and disunity over matters concerning ethnic and religious differences fall apart and always end up short at each by election and in the past GE’s.
So is the present state of affairs concerning the political brouhaha in this nation that DR.M ruled over for 22 long years and is today relegated to depending on internet based media platforms which he used to pooh pooh away during his time in power.
If you are online two hours from now, log on to Malaysia Today at 2.30 pm and see what Mahathir has to say this time around.
Raja Petra Kamaruddin sms’d me last night asking me to spread the word about this event , so here am I fulfilling my promise to him.
Spread the word around and let the world tune in to Mahathir speaking his mind direct to us live from the webtv’s. At least, the people will be able to hear and watch what ‘Mr.In Your Face’ has to say!
One thing you have to acknowledge Dr.M is his capacity to speak his mind straightforward and not mumble and fumble as the present PM does every so often!
Enjoy watching the ‘fundamentalist’ ex PM do his thing! Beats the boring Sunday TV Fare!
