Dr M's game for the game

From theSUN at page 2 today.

Dr M: Only jail can stop me

PUTRAJAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday declared that his defeat in Kubang Pasu was not the end of the road for him and that the government will have to throw him in jail to stop him from continuing with his criticisms.

Mahathir blamed money politics for his failure to be elected as a Kubang Pasu delegate to the Umno general assembly in November and vowed to continue his confrontation with the party and government.

At a press conference yesterday, he provided what he alleged was evidence of money politics - a brown envelope that contained RM200 and a piece of paper asking delegates who received it to vote only for certain people.

... Mahathir admitted the evidence may not stand up in a court of law, but he would not report to the Umno disciplinary committee as he did not trust it and witnesses would also not come forward as they had been threatened.

... He reiterated that he would continue to expose what the government was doing.

"You can't try to shut my mouth ... because I have a big mouth and I am going to use my big mouth to expose the misdeeds of this present government, including their lies," he said.

"The truth will prevail one day and we have to pay for it, including for changing the Malaysian government into a family government. (The) only way they can stop me is by putting me in jail. They are afraid of me and if they are not in the wrong, there was no need for them to be afraid of me."

Asked if he wanted Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to step down, Mahathir said, "Either he changes or he steps down."

Asked if this meant he wanted to see a change of government, he said: "Change of policies or government is for Umno to decide."


Points to ponder:-

  1. He did not trust the Umno disciplinary committee.
  2. He has a big mouth.
  3. The present government is telling lies and he is telling the truth because they are afraid of him.
  4. We are being governed by a family government.
  5. Change of policies and government is for Umno to decide.

I'm wondering:-

  1. Can any BN party disciplinary committees be trusted at all, including MCA? Can ANY disciplinary committees formed by the government be trusted AT ALL?
  2. Jail him for opening his big mouth? Or possibly write him off as an insane old man to be pitied?
  3. Have we ever been fed any truths by the ruling government, even during the 22 years under his iron rule? Can we have some truth now about our past? and present?
  4. This is quite a convincing argument. I'd like to hear a good rebuttal.
  5. Umno? Does this mean when you vote for any party under the BN ticket, in reality you have just cast your vote for Umno? This confirms a lot of things long held under suspicion.

I was inclined to do a reBUTTal, but I don't think WE can take IT in comfort. So KIV, like what we learnt from the BN. When there is a BIG problem, set up a Committeee to sleep over it. Often they never wake up from the sleep. Or wake up as Rip van ....(Who now?):( IsIT Wrinkles?

Commercialism and capitalism is here to stay and entrenched in UMNO's culture.

He's tasting his own medicine. But I prefer him doing what he is doing now. Expose as much as possible.

I agree with pablopabla. When I read that Dr M was defeated, all I can think of was

After all these years M in politics, is that something unexpected? It'll be more of a surprise if M could manage to go against the party and get a win. Why is M acting so indignant? He should have known much better.
