Desperate times call for desperate measures. By sacking his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin, PM Najib the son of Razak is practically telling all and sundry that he’s a very desperate man. And a desperate man is a very dangerous man, not because he would run amok like the mobile phone thieves at Low Yat recently, but he would go bonkers and start doing stupid things.
Did he really need to sack his deputy to duct tape criticisms about his RM2.62 billion pocket money? Perhaps his sleazy advisers had advised him to copy exactly what Mahathir had done in 1998 when the former premier decided to sack his deputy Anwar Ibrahim. But in 1998, a mobile phone was as heavy as a brick and Cabinet ministers couldn’t even spell “Internet” correctly.
It seems Muhyiddin and Mahathir can now openly attack Najib with two strategies. Mahathir would do the hard killing a.k.a. “kungfu chop” while Muhyiddin would do the soft killing a.k.a. “silat dance”. The fact that Mukhriz Mahathir was deliberately sent for a visit to Muhyiddin’s home under the spotlight of journalists speaks volumes about the joint forces.
Of course, Muhyiddin would play the role of a victim, pledging to support his boss and the party UMNO, no matter how cruel he was being treated. Conveniently, a leaked 53-second video clip depicting Muhyiddin, while entertaining some UMNO guests (including Mukhriz), claims Najib admitted to pocketing US$700 million; thus making netizens crazy.
When even a 3-year-old kid can tell you the video recording was a deliberate plan, you don’t need a rocket scientist to tell you there’s no credibility to Muhyiddin’s admission. But that was exactly what Najib has been telling everyone, that he didn’t take the money for personal use, although he didn’t deny it was his private account that had received the RM2.62 billion.
So, if Muhyiddin’s claim cannot be substantiated, neither can Najib’s claim. But the bombshell dropped by Muhyiddin has more credential simply because thepublic perception of Najib’s guilt is very much stronger, thanks to the sackings of not only Muhyiddin but also other UMNO warlords and the Attorney General Gani Patail.
Previously, we’ve written about the risk of sacking Muhyiddin, a veteran warlord from Johor. Now that Najib had chosen the desperate path, UMNO can kiss their stronghold Johor goodbye. Theoretically, if all the 21 MPs from the Kingdom of Johor switch sides, the Barisan Nasional would be reduced to 112 seats, just 2 seats away from losing the federal government (*grin*).
Here’s the fun part. The Sultanate of Johor, by virtue of Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, has been extremely critical of Najib administration. If the Sultanate of Pahang was proud with their local boy Najib Razak, the sacking of local boy Muhyiddin was like a slap to the Sultanate of Johor, and that’sinsulting. Like it or not, the pride of royalty house is at stake.
Heck, the Crown Prince of Johor had even given his latest analogy which said that “a drowning man will try to reach and hold on to anything, including ‘faeces'”. Although he didn’t specifically mention names, it was quite obvious to whom he was referring to. Without the support from the royal house of Johor, UMNO is as good as dead meat in the next election.
Did Mahathir see this coming? In order to force Najib the son of Razak to surrender, only the UMNO Supreme Council could do the magic. They may be corrupted, but they are smart enough to smell the collapse of their gravy train if Johor is to fall. And that’s precisely why the Supreme Council meeting, supposedly to be held tomorrow has been cancelled.
If majority of the UMNO Supreme Council members were strongly behind Najib in the first place, why cooked up a silly excuse such as to avoid heated debates, hence the cancellation? They may not be as smart as scammer Jho Low, or don’t even know the cost of a Hermes Birkin handbag, but they surely know the answer to 133 minus 21.
What if the Supreme Council members are too “shy” to give Najib the boot? Well, let the party UMNO collapse then. After all, the present day UMNO is not the original UMNO anymore. Today’s UMNO is actually UMNO Baru (New), created by Mahathir on 13 February 1988. Surely Mahathir can create anotherUMNO Baru version 2, if the names have such a sentimental value.
So, could the infamous “RAHMAN” prophecy comes into reality? Going by the rate desperado Najib trying to cling to power, the prophecy seems to be alive and kicking. But what nobody knows is this – will Najib Razak becomes not only the last president of UMNO, but also the first president to be sent to jail for corruption? -financetwitter
