Have you ever known a man who will continue to drive down the wrong road knowing that it is wrong instead of admitting the mistake and asking for directions?
This is pretty much what Tun Mahathir and Pakatan Harapan have done with respect to the issue of 1Malaysia Development Berhad or 1MDB. If they have not known from the onset of their crusade to use 1MDB against the Prime Minister was bogus, they certainly knew early that there was no proof.
The DAP’s very own Tony Pua who was part of the Parliament Accounts Committee found no wrong doing on the part of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. So one has to wonder what is with the latest plea from Pakatan Harapan for an investigative look into 1MDB.
Is Tony Pua now saying the he and the other members of the PAC were too incompetent to investigate the matter? If so why was he willing to undertake the process?
If in fact the PAC investigative process was not flawed then what has subsequently taken place since then is a desperate attempt to find some legal body that will say that Prime Minister Najib is guilty of something.
Therefore we first saw the PAC investigation: No blamed assigned to the Prime Minister
Then there was the USA Department of Justice (DoJ) with their questionable motives: Again, no name specified. I guess innocence until proven guilty still applies to some degree there.
After Tun Mahathir’s hope in DoJ quickly flamed out, he had his emissaries turn their attention to the House of Commons: But that hope fizzled out faster than the hope that he place in the DoJ; even Pakatan’s UK Sarawak Reports mouth piece Clare Rewcastle-Brown was unsuccessful to get a UK court to parrot her belief that Malaysia’s government and leaders are corrupt
Now, out of pure desperation Pakatan Harapan is trying to put pressure on Malaysia’s Anit Corruption Commission (MACC).
Pakatan’s strategy will be something like the following: If the MACC investigates and finds nothing in the same way PAC found nothing they (PH) will say that the MACC is in collusion with the government to cover up the truth.
Even if the MACC starts a thorough and length investigative process, Pakatan Harapan will say that they (MACC) are dragging it out until after GE14. Conversely, if the MACC investigates quickly, Lim Kit Siang and Pakatan will say that it was no thorough.
So no matter what the MACC does, it’s damned if they do and damned if they don’t because the only thing that will satisfy Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of PH is a resounding assignment of guilt placed at the feet of Najib Razak; nothing else fits into their agenda to deceive the Malay’s.
That is why Pakatan Harapan’s Lim Guan Eng is upset that Arul Kanda Kandasamy briefed PAS on 1MDB. Lim Guan Eng knows that if PAS is satisfied with the explanation then the DAP will not be able to use 1MDB as a weapon to have Malays going against Malays.
The problem for Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang and the rest of Pakatan Harapan is that they know they cannot win without a sizable Malay backing. They also know that it is impossible for them to drop the one issue (1MDB) that they were hoping to use to capture Malays without looking even more foolish than they do now!
