I remembered the feeling I had the morning after we took government away from BN. Elated and hopeful that change will begin to come our way.
In all that elation and hope, I too wondered how Najib Razak would have felt in defeat.
This morning I know Mahathir will know how Najib felt that same morning too. Mahathir would know this morning after the Kongres Maruah Melayu …..Mahathir would know that for him, that congress marked the beginning of the end for him. Mahathir would know that he no longer has the votes of the non-Malays. Mahathir would know that DAP (if Lim Kit Siang has any sense of propriety and self-respect) would now look upon him as a Pariah. He would know that Anwar will soon declare open warfare in his quest to be King. And Mahathir would know that any self-respecting Malay with a shred of decency within himself, would now turn their backs on him and do what they need to do to ensure that the Mahathir era will now come to an end.
What is now left for Mahathir is to pack his bags and be gone. No grand goodbyes, no parades, no thank you’s for a lifetime of service from a grateful nation. Will someone show him the door….and please Tun, do not forget to switch off the lights as you leave the building.
