Woke up early and straight away got into a debate with someone at breakfast.
The lady is pro-establishment and supports DS Najib Razak.
She was angry with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for attacking the PM.
"Tun is an old man, don't get angry with him lah," I said.
I told the lady that being angry wouldn't solve anything.
"Don't you know that most of those who fought this Umno civil war are doing it due to personal interests?
"Very few of them actually think about the future of Umno or even the country," I rambled.
The way I see it, most of the people on both sides have something at stake or a score to settle.
They attack Dr Mahathir or Najib, depending on which side they were on, not really because of the country or the party, but because they got something to gain if their side wins.
That's the sad reality of this ongoing Umno civil war.
That's why bystanders should not get too emotional about it
The angry lady was puzzled why then that I defended Dr Mahathir.
She knew that I was never really a Mahathirist.
In fact, I never even have a conversation with the man unlike most of the bloggers now fighting for both sides of the warring factions.
"It's because we can't afford to burn bridges now. BN (Barisan Nasional) will need every single votes it can get for the next general election and that includes those of Dr Mahathir's supporters.
"If you whack the old man now, than those votes will be lost."
"But Tun is being too much. He didn't think about all that when he started attacking Najib," replied the angry lady.
"Tun is an old man. Old man should be allowed to say anything that he wants. If you want to defend Najib, then go ahead and do so, but don't whack the old man. Whacking an old man wouldn't make you look good," I said.
Yeah, why can't they let the handsome old man says whatever he wanted to say?
They should just do the right things and let the good outcome answers Dr Mahathir.
And of course don't steal people's money and such as alleged.
If there were mistakes, then just apologise, explain how the mistakes happened, and correct them. That's all.
Just make it plain and easy for the people to understand why certain things needed to be done the way they were.
It's actually quite simple.
We can do without all these aggravations.
The worst are those who thrive on adding fuel to the fire.
The people should not listen to these batu api (instigators) who are doing it out of self interest.
Everyone needs to be cool instead of getting all riled up.
Okay, I need to get ready for work now.
Have a good Friday everyone.
