Not Everyone Is Fooled By His 2010 Retirement Plan

Online news portal Malaysian Insider first carried the news in the morning from UMNO insiders that Abdullah Badawi will be handing over reins to Najib in June 2010. This was no surprise as everyone was asking of a timetable (particularly by Abdullah loyalists) of when he should resign following the March 8 disaster.

But the handover plan has shows that Abdullah and his gang have numerous ulterior motives:

1. By declaring that there is no contest for the top two, Abdullah is forcing the ground-root level members to support him and Najib unanimously for the roles for President and Deputy-President. This effectively shuts off Team B, which is Ku-Li and Muhyiddin. If Muhyiddin persists of contesting, he will be branded as a traitor to UMNO.

2. To put a slap on Mahathir (who celebrates his actual birthday today) saying that whatever he did could not unseat him off UMNO.

3. Another way to restraint Najib from the possibility of contesting against him for the post of President.

4. Another way to throw Najib since of his involvment in the Altantuya murder. When he throws Najib out, he will pick a loyalist to take over his place. The loyalist could admit that he wasn't capable to running the post, thereby he'd say that I will fill in for the mean time. In other words, he could throw Najib out like Mahathir did to Anwar and then continue until 2013.

5. It is predicted that by the world economic meltdown will hit the highest point in June 15 2010 when the New York stock market will have its greatest crash since 1929 depression period. After he leaves, whoever takes over will have a hard time to stimulate the national economy. At that time, the funds of the treasury could be emptied out by Abdullah's cronies and corrupt yes men.

6. Ahmad Shabery is one of Abdullah's cannon fodder. He's been made as a sacrificial lamb in next week's debate with Anwar Ibrahim. And he has declared that he could quit if he fails to tell the people on government policy of fuel management. Let the slaughter begin.....

Well, not all of the Malaysian citizens are fooled by this soap opera / red herring but instead they believe that Dollah Badawi will flip-flop again, particularly when you see #4. In the last 5 years, the price of petrol in Malaysia has doubled, which means, what we pay for the cost of living could be by another 50% more than what it was before. Sometimes politcal games can be fun to watch from the citizen's view. It will be a incredible clash recreated in Spartacus, between Gracchus (think Mahathir) against Crassus (like Dollah Badawi)... but the ante is up and more dangerous than the movie itself!

  1. Can we believe anything from the PM? Well the track records can tell us how much we need to be reminded that when there is a flip, there will be a flop.....
