How tragic that the promise of greatness once held out has turned out this way, writes Dominic Damian.

The ex-prime minister’s consistent denials of the massive plundering that has taken place is creating something of a reality show on the Malaysian political system.

It has spawned a creature that believes his own statements as the indisputable truth. But there is no immunity for the ex-prime minister’s incompetence or transgressions that border on idiocy or idolatrous greed. No wonder he faces isolation.

His statements have been of such poor quality – reminiscent of something you would hear from a Three Stooges slapstick comedy. Every unbelievable statement he makes has a gestation period of growth. Eventually, it will be forced out to reveal a complex web.

More and more, people are becoming aware of the relationship between the ex-prime minister, his wife and their cohorts. Citizens of the nation are getting to know every little detail of the contents of this web. Perhaps more will be learned when a certain Tommy Thomas uses his legal scalpel to expose even more.

The ex-prime minister’s heart, mind and soul have been consumed and compromised. He is crawling on the thinnest sheet of glass; the smallest pebble of righteousness could shatter the glass.
