Less than 24 hours after the release of the latest FAQs by the prime minister which you can read here, Dr Mahathir posted another critical entry about Najib in his blog,
Dr Mahathir this time completely ignored the Najib's FAQs and had instead pressed on along this angle of attack from his previous post,
NAJIB DAN PEMBOHONGAN
Excerpts from Dr Mahathir's latest post,
Now it's really becoming a case of tit-for-tat between the PM and his ex-boss.
In his latest FAQs, Najib among others said, "Much of what Tun has said lacks objectivity and is downright wrong."
Dr Mahathir today simply responded by reiterating that Najib may had lied or attempting to lie over the 1MDB issue.
Personally, I would prefer for both of them to be inaccurate in their assessment of each other.
I would rather want to believe that Dr Mahathir was being fed with the wrong information by people with vested interest, causing him to attack Najib out of fear that his former protege may cause the downfall of Umno and Barisan Nasional.
I would also like to believe that Najib on his part was given poorly prepared information by his less than brilliant people, causing him to give a less than satisfactory explanation of the 1MDB issue, thus prompting Dr Mahathir to come up with the idea that the PM was trying to dupe the people.
Those would be better than having to believe that either of those two guys is a crook.
Yes, maybe both men should consider the position of each other and try to be more positive about it.
I still believe that the only way this Najib-Dr Mahathir spat could be put to an end is for both of them to meet and talk with each other for the sake of not only Umno and BN, but also the country.
But since both at the moment still prefer to continue fighting, I think I will try to study more carefully BN's chances of winning the next general election under Najib's leadership.
Honestly, I doubt Dr Mahathir will be able to force Najib to step down from his PM post before the polls.
I also don't think anyone credible in Umno have the balls to challenge Najib for now.
Well, in the light of that, who knows, maybe Najib can really pull it off even if all of Dr Mahathir's supporters decided not to vote for BN in the next general election.
That would be brilliant....but again, my money is not on it happening.
