No government rules forever, Mahathir

Martin Jalleh reminds Mahathir of the fall of governments that held power for decades in countries around the world. Going by those standards, the BN’s shelf life appears to have expired.

I don’t fault you for wishing that and I wish it had happened on 505! But Allah will always side the righteous and the down-trodden IF we all UNITE! We cannot leave it just to the DAP and PR.. Everyone who are UNselfish must ensure that Justice is not only preserved but God-fearing men must take up the call to CLEAN-up this Dirty and Messy GOM!

It is not Mahathir,but the citizens, who decides which party to rule the country.
By looking at the past performances(and mis-performances)and its impact on the economic well-beings of the people,the people will decide in the GE.
But I think with more than 50 years of rule with no real improvement and a lowering quality of life for the majority citizens and the increasing crimes(thus public safety),calls for serious thought for a change of govt.

… Mahathir is fully aware of the fact that Umno is coming to the end but he is still fighting for it to stay alive. He fears and knows any new regime taking over Putrajaya will surely have him indicted for the abuses of power during the tenure of his 22 years as P.M.. He knows for as long as his Umno cronies stay in Putrajaya all the atrocities he committed will remain safe because the morons themselves have the ill gotten gains to be protected too. He knows (they)… will leave (them) alone in the den !

… the ultimate aims of the exercise is to have (any allegedly) ill gotten wealth sized back no matter where they are hidden. … I have already initiated a tracing of it even though it is a costly endeavor. Hopefully it won’t take very long to have (any) ill gotten wealth traced and revealed where they are hidden. Just wait and see the truth of the numerous ‘commissions’ from the many white elephants … built in the name of development…
