Mahahir Mohamad Wants a Vote of No-confidence

On Thursday, former PM Mahathir Mohamad (left) called for an immediate vote of no-confidence against Prime Minister Najib Razak. And then he said something strange. He said BN MPs would only be willing to join forces with the opposition to oust Najib if the latter accepts that the new government will still comprise purely of BN parties.
In response, Najib vows to fight on. To the bitter end.
Methinks, Mahathir wants to have his cake and eat it too. Pray tell me, what is the point of getting rid of Najib if BN are still in the driver’s seat? The whole organization stinks to high heaven. Why should they still govern the country as if it is still business as usual? It benefits the opposition if Najib stays on – UMNO and BN are self-destructing because of him.
Najib doesn’t know it but he is the real enemy within UMNO-BN.
Whether he cares to admit it or not, he is already finished. But he has no intention of raising the white flag. The trappings of power are just too great to give up. Moreover, wife Rosmah Mansor won’t allow it.
Meanwhile, the country is tottering. A matter of time before we take a big fall. And yet, Najib and his minions persist in making sure we are spiraling downhill. The brakes are already failing but the driver doesn’t give a damn and he is blissfully speeding onward.
This morning, I was in Bandar Utama in Petaling Jaya to attend the KPMG KL Toastmasters meeting. I was an Evaluator for a speech from the "Speaking to Inform" manual and I also delivered my project speech, CC#3 titled “Donations”.

Generally, it was a good meeting and I was voted Best Project Speaker and Best Evaluator. My only gripe was that we didn’t start on time and neither did we end on time. A 4 over 10 score for this meeting.
