Master of Manipulation does not equal master of statecraft. Of course he could have done surgeries well! Remember how he cut off his many deputies one by one? Well executed surgeries but poor diagnosis and prognosis though..But I'm glad didn't call him a statesman,steal billions from the rakyat's coffers by using NEP, proxies,inflated contracts, cheating and hiding behind the OSA and fix up anyone using ISA.As a doctor, I have to work hard and earn an honest living. which he certainly isn't.The root of all kind of evil starts from here.corruption,racism,dismantling of the country's instituition. Mahathir's snide remark confirming that all those in the present government and in politics are there for the money only. This man's wit is still razor sharp. Too sharp nowadays until it's become more of a double edged sword. The Prime Minister’s income is not fantastic when compared to the doctor’s income in the private sector but what is fantastic is the hundreds of millions or billions the crooked and corrupt Prime Ministers make from crooked deals such as the IPPs, Scorpenes and 1MDB for Mahathir politic in Malaysia pays better...allegedly US$44 billion for his familyThe state of our Judiciary is shocking and tragic. After the impeachment of Salleh Abas, things degenerated Syed Ahmad Idid is vindicated.
We need people who can stand up to injustice and fraud in every department if the government, but not many dare do it as it affects their rice bowl. It will not be soon that we can hope for an honest system, infact every thing is going the other way. I pray that Syed Ahmad Idid will be fairly rewarded for his bravery and loss.Ex-High Court Judge Datuk Syed Ahmad Idid“Nothing could have brought some good cheer to a nation in crisis than when PM Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi announced that the government was making goodwill ex-gratia payments to Tun Salleh Abas and the other five judges of the great 1988 judicial earthquake. What a welcome gust of fresh air, never mind even if DPM Datuk Seri Najib Razak saw the need to say that the payments were not a form of apology. We do not know how much a ‘real’ apology would be adequate recompense to careers so tragically terminated and lives left almost in shambles for close to 20 years. And these are not ordinary lives! These are decent, honest, God-fearing individuals who, with their counterparts in the rest of the civil service, represent some of the best that this country has – public servants who acquit themselves in the most exemplary manner with the highest professional standards in a civil service known for probity. We all seem to have forgotten one more victim.During his more than two decades in power, Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been accused of numerous things, ranging from being a despot to a corrupt politician.
