Najib is the man!

Many people must have underestimated the strength of Najib to stay on as the PM in the face of attacks from so many quarters, from Mahathir, some royalties and also from his own UMNO. And with the 1MDB assuming such a high profile in the politics of Malaysia, most PMs would have crumbled and resigned, but not Najib.

Najib is still hanging on with no signs of throwing in the towel. And he has good reasons for it. Some of the heavy weights in UMNO are staunchly on his side, supporting him and prepared to take on his critics. Ahmad Hamidi, Hishamuddin, Khairy and a few others have spoken up to show support for Najib. The initial signs of a break with Muhyiddin calling for an investigation have fizzled out.

Many would think that with Mahathir taking on the role as cheer leader, there will be a fall out and many UMNO leaders would cross over and take on Najid. For the moment this is not happening. Najib is hanging on and with UMNO appearing to be strongly behind him.

Mahathir must be wondering what is happening. This Najib is turning out to be a tough nut to crack. And Najib has a trumph card in Rosmah. She has not shown what she is capable of doing to protect her husband yet. This is the time when Rosmah would be called upon to prove her mettle against the old fox. She may dig out some dirt about Mahathir or his children to share and divert the attention away from Najib. And Mahathir will have to spend time covering his back.

It is still too early to tell if Najib will survive this crisis. As long as the UMNO leaders are closing ranks to stay with him, it is not easy to dislodge him from office if he does not want to bow out.

This is another big battle to watch. And quite fortunate for Najib that the PKR is also having problems of their own and would not be as formidable as a united front to mount a challenge at Najib.

Mr Najib is Man Of Steel!

What is akan datang?

We shall see.

I hope he stays and fights until they have to drag him from office in handcuffs.

Why? Because 1 SGD = 2.8 + MYR. The longer he can hang on, the more MYR I can greedily and selfish get for my mighty SGD.

Dinner at Puteri Harbour, Iskandar anyone?

P.S. Dr M, Please keep up the excellent work. Ramadan is a time for followers of Islam to do "charitable works".

Could you increase your "charitable efforts" a little so that the MYR drops to 1 SGD = 3 MYR, and on the way to 10 MYR!

Banyak Bagus lah!

Aiya, those supporters had to support because if he goes down, they also goes down.

Same everywhere. Here, any threats to our status quo continued good lives must also be put down merciless even it is a sixteen year boy or even s baby.

Mahathir so far is undefeatable. See whether Rosmah can take him on and be his nemesis.

Rosmah heavy weight sure can floor Mahathir.

Now even cannot squat to wear shoes or maybe now Royalty got people to wear for you.

He is clever. Take the $$$ and throw some to his kaki. Now he may be in trouble but all his supporters dare not abandon him as their hands are also full of mud. Clever trick. It works all the time. Wonder this is shared with neighbouring countries.

He is in deep shit. If he does not sue, that shows the WSJ is telling the truth. If he sues, he faces the prospect of being grilled on the stand and if it is proven that he is on the take, nothing will save him.

That the bigwigs in UMNO are standing behind him is understandable. If he falls, the whole house will collapse with him, because there can be no doubt that every one of those supporting him has the same kind of feather in their beds.

This will be a time to see if they can still shout 'Malaysia Boleh'.

This is the problem with an all-power premiership. Mahathir created this powerful monster of a post by neutering the sultans, castrating the judiciary, changing the UMNO voting system, resorting to ISA, and getting rid of all challengers and even sitting Prime Ministers. Mahathir's victims include Tunku Abdul Rahman, Gaafar Baba, Tungku Razaleigh, Musa Hitam, Anwar Ibrahim, Abdullah Badawi, and not he's gunning for Najib.

Despite some much wrong-doings by Najib, it is not easy to pull him down.

Moral of the story is - if a party is all-power and control all the levers of power, when a crook comes in, it is very difficult to dislodge.

Hmmmm, this situation looks and sounds familiar - I must have seen it somewhere else.

With so much problems on his hands, no wonder this relatively young gentleman is having a head full of white hair.

He should take his winnings and disappear somewhere to enjoy his spoilts of "war"

Ha. Ha.

Greed knows no bounds. They just want more. White hair or not does not matter. The colour of money does.
