Watching events unfold
Tun Dr Mahathir was repeatedly defeated by Dato Najib in few battles but he did not give up and took his fight to new boundaries.
The consummate politician and dictator won another political war. Admittedly, we lost.
Though still believe it was a justified decision to leave him and stayed to defend the institution of UMNO and government, it is better to refrain from doing a post mortem.
There is a long list of concerns that came out from election result. The concerns are political, legal, economic and national in nature, but it will have to hold first.
Over the past 24 hours, the last few bastions of BN are crumbling under its own feet. Perak BN and Perlis BN would shift to PH.
Fortress Sabah BN is crumbling. Sarawak BN is reviewing their position with BN and likely to join PH with initial resistance from DAP Sarawak.
The suspicion is it was intentional tampering that led to this. Perak and Perlis had long been planned.
Just had few telephone conversations since 3 AM, and we have enough idea where everything is heading since hanging around at BSC yesterday to laugh our sorrow away.
It is not just about exchanges between Mahathir and current Attorney General, Tan Sri Apandi Ali. Mahathir's intention is clear and expected as he set his eyes on Dato Najib on the 1MDB.
We await that development and giving the benefit of the doubt that he is now revealing his cards. It better not be a fix uo and purely revenge.
While Apandi had justified reason to not resign. Read Utusan HERE. A matter of days or at most week, he will no more be AG.
And, it is not just him to be replaced. Read Mkini HERE. But it must be justified and sincere attempt to correct past wrongs. Thus it is not to cover-up the wrongs.
If Mukhriz is back as Kedah MB, then one can expect many to be back at their old positions. The suspicion is three names will be surely back.
The hint is from Dato Nazir Tun Abdul Razak acknowledging Mahathir. Read Mkini HERE.
However, the events one will witness will be unprecedented and a major historical turn of event more than the fall of mighty UMNO and BN.
It is as explosive as the possible eruption of Gunong Merati volcano in Indonesia. [Read HERE.]
There is the possibility that UMNO will be deregistered. Its the end of one phase of history and its record lost leaving no trail.
Apparently, a group of people have started to gather at Subang Airport to carry out a 'citizens arrest' and disrupt Dato Sri Najib's flight this morning.
Words are Najib and family is flying to Bali for R&R and likely to pow wow for their next course of action. It is not likely an attempt to run. There is not many place in the world for him to run.
With so many things happening and the atmosphere in the country, the Bali trip only arouse suspicion. The viral schedule HERE.
It gives the impression that Najib has lost control. Already UMNO Youth are calling for his resignation.
There was skirmishes outside PWTC where UMNO held their thanksgiving doa for their 72nd anniversary last night.
Someone on social media claimed it is led by a son of Tan Sri Halim Saad. That is an interesting claim but it could not be verified. Read Mkini HERE
It could be seen as Khairy or UMNO Youth seizing on the opportunity.
There are many possibilities. However, we are not sharing yet. Much prefer to watch it unfold.
It could be leading to a major resolution to the many societal problems of the past.
Or it may not resolve much. Only face value.
Of concern, if UMNO has to go because it has gone so corrupted, then many of the current players dictating the show have issues too.
Chinese may want a level playing field but they are at a huge advantage thus it is no more level. However, it is not as simple as pigeonholding problems according to race.
Maybe it is bizarre to think so. It is not impossible that the BN MPs would consider migrating enbloc to PH to save their own skin but more important, the provide much needed political stability for the country.
What about check and balance to the system. Coming out of a revolution, there will usually emerge out of the anarchy a new dictatorship.
Something that should be avoided. There must be rhe emergence of a new govetnment free from corruption past, present and future.
The above picture is telling that the unthinkable messing up of BN candidate list is deliberate and part of the design.
So does the immediate sacking of Daim, Rafidah and Rais.
However, it was not the reason the people including UMNO members rejected UMNO candidates. It was inevitable and impossible to save (though we tried gallantly).
We now admit that we are aware of all the signs that have been around for many years. Thus we tried hard to stick our finger and stop the dyke from bursting.
However, many are in-denial of all the signs till the very end.
It saddened us that two days before polling there are those up there still thinking BN could win 140 seats and even possibly two third majority.
This election is different from past elections and the usual yardstick was not applicable. It had a strange and uncomfortable feel throughout the campaign.
Time for fresh morning walk. A new Malaysia is emerging and we will only be watching it from the side. Our time is over and we will move on.
