Those aligned to Tun Mahathir have wasted a lot of time and money to get the Department of Justice (DOJ) to get those vague DOJ announcements. Instead of going to the DOJ, Tun Mahathir should have sent his emissaries should have contacted Houston to say: ‘Houston we have a problem’.
Tun Mahathir and the Anti Najib Corruptors (ANC) really thought that getting the DOJ to say anything no matter how vague about 1Malaysia Development Berhad would get tongues wagging during the Raya break. Nothing farther could be from the truth as it seems not many outside the DAP-led opposition camp cared to discuss a matter that they (Lim Kit Siang’s DAP-led coalition) have already run into the ground.
Many people were of the mindset during the break home of; move along, there’s nothing to see here.
Of course, if you ask the Pakatan Harapan faithful they would swear that that is all they heard during when they balik kampung. Of course those are those same people who respond to surveys saying they believe farmer Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is the best choice for Prime Minister.
From many accounts, people seemed to have derived more enjoyment from talking about the yearly pilgrimage heavy traffic than anything Tun Mahathir has manufactured.
As things have turned out, the buzz that Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of Pakatan Harapan wanted was no buzz after all, it was more like a wet ‘rocket’ that fizzles; Lim Kit Siang should be able to relate to that.
So all of Pakatan’s hoopla over the DOJ announcement and talk of a road show is just to preach to Lim’s Pakatan opposition choir; most Malaysians know that the DOJ announcement is much to do about nothing!
On the other hand Tun Mahathir’s possible role in the Bank Negara Malaysia Forex scandal may create that buzz that wanted; only this buzz may be about whether Tun Mahathir will do time behind bars or spend his years under house arrest were he can write a new book entitled “Mahathir’s Dilemma”.
Mahathir is coming to realize that you should never spit into the wind as it inevitably will end up in your own face. Meaning the trouble that Mahathir wanted for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has now returned to him (Tun Mahathir)
That is why Tun Mahathir’s emissaries would have been better off contacting Houston instead of the DOJ to say ‘Houston we/I got a problem’!
