Return Of The Oligarch

Hantu Laut

It's really difficult to make out this statement of Mahathir.There seems to be inconsistency in his idea of democracy.Up till now he has been asking for the party to remove the hurdles to allow for more contests in the party and asking Najib to go against Abdullah and to remove him from the premiership.Now when his favourite is being challenged he is accusing other contenders of money politics and asking them to be arrested under the ISA.It looks like he has different strokes for different folks.

There is little doubt he is not happy with Ali Rustam and Muhammad Taib, the two spoilers of an almost perfect equation to politics of the oligarch.

Are we moving back to his old ways?

Hi Tuan

Surely keeping Ali, bless him, and Mike Tyson from being DPM is top priority?
But then Ali being such a good grassroots politician, according to some blogs, may have the benefit of actually listening to ppl....
Then again, ppl change with power?
