A Nightmare If Mahathir Wins

Dr Mahathir

At the advanced age of 92, Dr Mahathir Mohamad is still fighting elections, this time leading the Opposition. If successful, he could be Prime Minister of Malaysia one again. How extraordinary.

While the odds are stacked against Mahathir, you can’t rule out the wily old fox. He was always a tough opponent. You would recall all those run-ins he had with Lee Kuan Yew and the PAP. On Lee’s passing, Mahathir wrote: “I cannot say I was a close friend of Kuan Yew. But still I feel sad at his demise.” He did not even come for the funeral.

As for the looming elections in Malaysia, PM Nazib Razak knows he has a fight on his hands, calling it the “Mother of all Elections.” For sure, with the return of Mahathir, there’s never a dull day in Malaysian politics.

A Mahathir win would be a nightmare for Singapore. It could reopen old wounds, renew old fights. Our 4G leaders would find it a tough challenge to handle the wily old fox, a challenge they never expected to emerge again.

    Won’nt.
    i expect Najib to be more wily.
    Probably he will play the race card and make it as if its Malay vs Chinese
    He can get PAS to stand on his side.
    Then expect more Malaysian Chinese to migrate, most to sg to snatch your rice bowl.

    He is what Malaysia needs at the moment or they will never make progress despite having so many natural resources. After so many years, they’re still not First World??? Many Malaysians are fed up and want him to return. Just look at the declining RM. It’s so bad many come to Singapore to work at the expense of Singaporeans.

  • A Nightmare for the PAPies:

    The wily old fox would also definitely expose the incompetencies of our 4G millionaire leaders and cause lots of embarrassment to those jiak liao bees. What the blind and daft singaoreans can’t see, Dr MM would help to open their eyes to see, no good?

    Wish our own Dr Tan Cheng Bock would take a leaf from Dr MM’s book and lead the opposition to fight in the next GE to stop our very own lot of wily foxes disguised as white angels from bullying the ordinary singaporeans with their cunning tricks and policies.

    An “agreement” that Dr M will assume “commander in chief” until Anwar’s release, unless of course, Dr M may love the job so much so that he may not wanna give it up.

    SG’s 4G leaders will have to content with all the chicanery and beguiling, if Dr M succeeds, which they are preponents of, themselves.

    The old man is dead and will never be back, but his son is still around to create enemies from neighbours. Dr M is back to solve their own issues, not to pick a fight with us. What point is this article trying to make? Since when has TRE become a site for voices other than Singaporeans? This country is in a mess already, solve them first. Learn to mind your own business before letting your oversized ego wander lose.

    It’s the same old shit stirrer from shittytimes, now masquerading as a labour trafficker. It’s still the same mould, can’t expect anything good from any of them.

    The difference is he admitted his mistake and apologises, here is we only stand corrected and nothing happen.

    The difference is he said sorry, here is only an honest mistake.

    The difference is he moves on in the right direction, here is the opposite direction.

    The difference is to him corrupted is corrupted, here is depend who you are.

    The difference is he never install his son as PM and can still take it back.

    The difference is when his see his ex-party chief is not managing appropriately, he tells him off and joins the Oppos, here we keep very quiet, closing both eyes just to stay in power and get paid till end of time.

    The difference is despite such a large country they can find a limping man, here OMG despite all the wired hi-tech CCTV installed all over such a small country he can take a taxi go home, take a shower and next day swim away.

    The difference is Indian is Indian (very straight forward), here is Indian can be Malay (very crooked).

    The difference is despite his age he is able to unite the Oppo to fight back without twisting the rule of law. AND THAT SOMETHING WE HAVE TO TAKE OUR HAT OFF TO HIM AND RESPECT HIM.

    The difference is do you want to spend your S$1/- here or in Malaysia. If your neighbour is laughing out loud after reading his, he must be a Malaysian working here. All PAP supporters please stand up and let them see who you are. They will laugh louder when they see who you are.

If he is the PM again, Najib and many UMNO leaders have to run road or would be locked up by him.BTW, Dr M like LKY is famous for locking people up.He is a very narrow minded leader among many leaders in ASEAN.
    UMNO has to quickly revert the GST and petrol subsidies or else they will loose big this time. The ground sentiments are on these 2 very issues. Dr M has use it very effectively.

    If Dr. Mahathir and his ‘prodigal son’ of Malaysia wins, it will be the latest horrid reality TV for Singapore. Dr. Mahathir has been widely regarded as a buffoonish jerk for decades and our spineless so-called leadership wouldn’t stand a chance in a mud fight with him. LKY is the only one who can rein him but not without a price. When Dr. Mahathir threatens to shut down the water supply, we started the Newater plants and this dotard Mahathir mocked that Singaporeans are drinking “toilet water”. Bugs bunny Chan will be like an unbelligerent teenager who doesn’t have any real clue what it means to take on the old goat, either.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    Combined political situation for both S’pore & M’sia doesn’t look too good. The situation in S’pore is leadership concerns after the disaster reign of PM LHL. On paper using GDP metrics, S’pore went forward but in reality, for the S’pore, the majority had gone backward (jobs, economic opportunities, cost of living, affordability, congestion, etc) under PM LHL. And the PAP leadership quality is clearly lacking. Using binoculars, some can see that the future is dim for S’pore; the US under President Trump is looking inwards with the America First Policies (to S’pore’s detriment); China under President Xi Jingpin, on the other hand, looks to wield it’s muscles within South-East Asia at a time when US is vacating from it’s post as a Global Policeman. They aim to teach S’pore a lesson. In addition, there are many hidden problems which will cause massive, massive problems for S’pore:
    * Technological disruption & discontinuities (jobs, economic opportunities);
    * Climatic changes & extreme weather patterns (food prices, disruptions);
    * Shortage of sand & gravel/aggregates (Infrastructural spending, PWP);
    * Potential of Global warfare eg. North Asia (North Korea) & Middle-East.
    Across the causeway, the politics under M’sian PM Najib were equally bad or even worse! The 1MBD scandal in 2015 had caused immense irreparable damage to the M’sia economy. The 2014 oil price meltdown had deeply affected M’sia’s resource-dependent economy. Najib had fallen into the power sphere of China as he struggles to hold on to the reins of power. China had essentially bailed out Najib financially from 1MDB scandal. Much of the 1MBD corruption monies had been confiscated by the US Dept of Justice leaving Najib looking like a complete idiot & M’sia out-of-pocket from all these (FYI KOM bribery case also looking like that!). The presence of 92 year old Mahathir looking to politically remove Najib isn’t a good sign. It shows a lack of emerging leadership candidates from within the M’sian system. What can Mahathir bring except his brand of M’sian politics which is both inward looking & antagonistic towards S’pore. If Mahathir comes to power, he could be inclined to stop or limit the High Speed Rail project which is much touted for both M’sia & S’pore economies. He would push for the crooked bridge project to replace the causeway instead. And at 92 years old, Mahathir can’t bring M’sia forward but instead backwards.
    In conclusion, M’sia & S’pore are co-joined twins with bleak outlook for the future. Both regimes have Authoritarian system which are looking vulnerable in an increasing disruptive & uncertain future. Get out if you can!

    Haigen Daiz: When Dr. Mahathir threatens to shut down the water supply, we started the Newater plants and this dotard Mahathir mocked that Singaporeans are drinking “toilet water”.

    Actually, this Newater isn’t very good for people’s consumption. It’s rather acidic – clothing after a few washes – the colours fade & material tear & frayed. Look at the elderly & weak/sick; a lot of them have digestive problems ie. colon cancer, etc. Look at the 40 to 50 year olds – many have premature aged looks ie. white hair, blotchy skin, brittle bones.
    Years ago there was this phenomena called acid rain due to industrialization which through burning of fossil fuels – the exhausts had emitted a lot of sulphur into the air. Sulphur reacts with rain water to produce acid rain which is bad for the environment. Acid rain is corrosive & leaches the environment of nutrients. And that is why the West went on a Globalization drive to outsource their industrial base to China. And China after nearly 2 decades of industrialization, now finds their food production affected & toxic due to environmental damage from industrialization. That’s why China signed FTA with Australia & NZ being the 2 countries with surplus food production & arable land for agriculture. China had shifted from food self-sufficiency to a food importer within 2 decades.
    That’s why S’pore (rather the PAP) drive for more people is a damn silly short-term economic solution which would rebound with long-term damage. It leaves S’pore highly vulnerable; to water shortages; Newater is expensive to produce (lots of energy to create reverse osmosis; irradiation, etc) & to shift in food prices (food will get more expensive because land, water resources & labour inputs are limited but population growth are unlimited). S’pore imports a lot of bad quality food (veggies from M’sia, Indonesia, China where their own farmers won’t even eat; frozen meat from Brazil where recently there was a quality scandal, irradiated fruits to stop bugs & maintain freshness, etc). That’s why cancer is one of S’pore’s biggest health problem within the population!

    I now write awso a bit scared one with fake news bill coming. But neber mind I think my brain will bother me if I don’t share the truth of this true story with everybody. You check and decide why I telling one.
    I always buy banana to eat. My family and I like bananas. Sometimes I buy Malaysian bananas sometimes Pinoy bananas. But my shy Pinoy maid I notice never eat banana which I find funny. I wonder so I ask her one day why. She shyly told me that she lives near a banana plantation area back home. All the villagers and the workers there never eat the bananas because they spray all sort of of pesticides on it and also all sorts of chemicals in the fertilizers. They scared hear many stories how health affected. She said before shipping they put all bananas in containers and they put some more chemical and when arrive here it appear so nice and yellow but actually got poison.
    So thank you Rabble Rouse for telling us about Newater and bad quality veggies from neighboring countries. But what to do no choice leh still got to buy and eat or go hungry. Everybody trapped. No wonder so many people visit Polyclinic and hospitals every day and always falling sick from all kinds of internal organs and skin problems.
    Swear this not news to scare people but real story. So I think good to share with people to think.
    So what could we do now like this?
    I think for Newater it will be good if ministers turn by turn to come up on tv every week to show drink straight from bottle to show nothing wrong with it. Also good if ministers can sit in tv…

    Cont……once a week and eat veggies and eat bananas turn by turn and bring along your scholars-in-charge too, to show nothing wrong and in ASEAN spirit support one another in esting each other product and guarantee still stay strong and healthy together. Also good to make friend with Mahathir quickly again and early, in case we need more fresh water, because when necessary then easy to talk mah.
    Must plan ahead one. Maybe scholar planners don’t see that far what we ground people see. After all they sadly miss the decade old Keppel rot, so alerting you all so that not make mistakes again.
    So hope accept it in good intention and good faith for well bring of all.
    As this sort of news like a good whistling blower must actually be rewarded leh.
    All for one and one for all!!!
    NB one more story to share. It seems a rich guy in East Malaysia grow his own veggies and fruits and goats and cows in his big land for his own family only to eat as he scared of polluted foodstuff. True or not?
    Dunno li!
    But I remember read last time about some Asian leader paranoid about health, live in germ free room and bring his own surgery equipment and paraphernalias whenever he travel overseas. So scared of sudden death one! True or not?
    Not fake news but sharing only leh.! Please excuse if wrong.

    Mahathir like Trump is a toughie and a shrewd guy. He will not give up. Never can tell, he could win.
    Donald Trump is set on draining the swamp. And he knows the swamp is huge. Look at what he is facing now for trying to keep to his electoral promises. But he is one brave tough guy. He is taking all of them on. One man versus the entire swamp. The only problem is in some areas he is getting obviously inaccurate or even wrong advice, considering the circle of advisers around him covering the scope of his responsibilities. He is one man with a mountain of issues to tackle and straighten out. Imagine that. But he continues jabbing away in all the fights. He is one unique character. Mahathir is also a unique character.
