Dr M's Sting (Ep. 5 - Enough is Enough!)

Quote from Tun Musa Hitam (The Star, 10 June 2006):-

Enough is enough. Don't say you don't want to interfere and the next moment keep making statements to the contrary.

Habit of choosing the wrong people. Had it ever occurred to him that he had been wrong, rather the(n) people wrong? The people cannot be wrong. The boss was wrong.

Petronas money is not government money. Petronas money is the people's money and the government should know it must be used. The people's money should not be abused.

In this matter, surely Dr Mahathir will say Putrajaya is a very good project. OK, he was the prime minister, he built it. If the current prime minister says no, then it should not be. He can't start condemning Abdullah for that.

******************

Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said Dr Mahathir had gone overboard by going on a “personal attack” against his successor, saying that the comments were “unwarranted, uncalled for and unfair”.

He said Dr Mahathir’s criticism and views could not be accepted as merely that of any ordinary citizen because whatever he said had an impact on the Government and party, and affected public perception.

“We cannot accept a personal attack on the leadership which we feel is wrong. The choice of words (used by Tun) was just too much. It is disappointing to us,” he said yesterday after chairing a Youth exco meeting.

Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir, an exco member and the son of the former prime minister and Khairy Jamaluddin, the son-in-law of the present Prime Minister both attended the meeting and were also present at the press conference.

************************

Umno Youth made the stand that Dr Mahathir's comments were “personal, unwarranted, uncalled for and unfair”.

Mukhiz said he stood by the movement’s decision. “We cannot stop him (Dr Mahathir) from asking questions,” he said, adding that the exco agreed that it had no right to stop Dr Mahathir from speaking out.

************************

It must have been a BAD DAY for the old man's son.

I lurve how every other armchair pundit will say Petronas' money belongs to the people.

Armchair pundits are no different from politicians (regardless of which party); they all want to claim a share of Petronas' cash.

Then, pray tell, who do YOU think Petronas' money should rightly belong to, Dopey?
