1. When the Barisan Nasional did very badly in the March 2008 general elections, all the component parties except those in Sabah and Sarawak experienced losses as they had never done before.

2. In the aftermath of the elections, the component parties pointed accusing fingers at each other. Very quickly they were at each other's throats.

3. There were talks about leaving the BN. And now we are seeing the first party to do so and to become an independent party.

4. Where before all parties avoided raising sensitive issues in public, now in the name of democracy and liberalism sensitive issues are brought up in which the component parties of the BN make known the differences in their view. The result is to widen the divide separating the BN component parties.

5. When Ahmad Ismail made unpalatable remarks about the Chinese, it was made out that it was the view of UMNO itself. Far from denying it, the UMNO leadership accepted the blame and apologised. This solved nothing as the Chinese parties refused to accept the apology but demanded the culprit himself should apologise.

6. He refused and UMNO whose president heads the Government suspended Ahmad for three years. This may satisfy some Chinese but almost immediately the Government arrested a Chinese MP under ISA. The effects of Ahmad's suspension have been nullified.

7. Now the Malays are angry with the Chinese and the Chinese are angry with the Malays. Party-wise UMNO is angry with Gerakan and MCA and Gerakan/MCA are angry with UMNO.

8. Threats to leave the BN are made by the Chinese parties, not just because of Ahmad's refusal to apologise but also because of the impression that they are subservient to UMNO. They believe that the failure of Chinese voters to vote for them was due to this junior position they hold in BN. To correct this impression they found it necessary to take pot shots at UMNO and defy the BN leadership.

9. Privately UMNO, MCA Gerakan and MIC express their dislike of Dato Seri Abdullah and his Premiership. But none seem willing to acknowledge that it was dislike for Abdullah which caused the BN to lose the support of the people. Instead they picked on the parties and blame each other.

10. At the rate things are going the BN might split asunder. If each party go their separate ways, none would become a force in Malaysian politics and certainly none, not even UMNO, can aspire to form the Government of Malaysia. Of course they can all join the Opposition under Anwar, but they would still play a subservient role in the Opposition. In any case the Opposition withi its ideological incompatibility would not make a good Government, capable of handling Malaysia's multi-racial population. It is difficult to think that the hodge-podge collection of incompatible parties can handle oncoming economic and financial problems that are inevitable.

11. The stability of this country has been undermined by the weakness and incompetence of the current Government and the harsh bickering between the Government parties. A Government by the Opposition is not going to be any better and probably would be worse.

12. Currently we are seeing the loss of confidence in the ability of the Government to deal with economic problems. Foreign investors are not coming and together with locals are pulling out their investments in the stock market. From a high of almost 1500 the index is now below 1000. God knows how much market capital has been wiped out.

13. The Ringgit is depreciating and may shrink further. The cost of living has shot up. Businesses are having a hard time already. The recent decision to tax excess profits of the Independent Power Producers has caused foreign investors and locals too to lose confidence. The tax has now been withdrawn but not for the first year. This alone would put the IPPs in trouble with their banks.

14. In at least one case a foreign investor has been given back his deposit of almost 100 million Ringgit because allegedly there was some technical error.

15. I once said Malaysia as a multi-racial country needs a strong government. Multi-racial countries have to face race relation problems. With the need to handle racial problems, the managment of the economy becomes extremely difficult.

16. I cannot see the Opposition with its loose organisation being able to handle Malaysia's racial and economic problems.

17. In the past, the BN Government had managed to keep Malaysia stable and to develop the country as well. If it seems not to be able to do so now it is not because the BN as a party is no longer suitable for this country. It is simply due to very poor and incompetent leadership.

18. The component parties of the BN should not think that their best hope is to see the demise of the BN. Rather they should all come together to resuscitate it. If it is necessary to dump the leader than they should do so. But destroying the BN will neither be good for the component parties nor for the nation.

19. I am not an UMNO member even but I would like to suggest the component parties should stop blaming each other, stop taking pot-shots at each other. Instead they should all come together and review the structure of BN. They should try for a win-win or lose-lose solution in dealing with inter-party relations. They should listen to the people and to their own members and find ways to satisfy their needs; to overcome their dissatisfaction.

20. There must be some new thinking on the BN concept. But the basic premises about close collaboration between the parties, about the need to help each other, to accommodate and deal with grouses together should be maintained.

21. I believe that for this multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-religious and multi-cultural country with extreme economic disparities, the BN is still the best political solution provider. It is still the best way for the different races to cooperate to govern this country.

22. As the Malays say "Because of one drop of indigo, a whole pot of milk is spoilt."

23. We must not throw out the baby with the bath water.

24. The BN is still relevant. It is still the ideal coalition for Malaysia's multi-racial population.

Dear Tun,

I am not a fan or die hard supporter of BN but wrote based on my perception of what is good value.

The BN Component parties in particularly UMNO , MCA and MIC must work together and not think of leaving just because of poor election results after 50 years of working together.

True friends must work things out together in the face of hardship or else they would be called fair weather friends.

Times have changed and they need to study what the rakyat wants especially the younger generation of voters and make the changes that is good for our rakyat and country.

Y.A.Bhg. Tun,

Yes, BN is still relevant and I wonder whether D.S. Samy Vellu will ever get elected for any post in the new non-racial party he suggested as in democracy, majority wins!

Pak Teh

By HasMas7274 on September 22, 2008 2:22 PM
I agree with you 100% percent. If this being going on for so long, I don't know what will be the future for BN. Common Pak2 Menteri, wake up!! Kalau orang di dalam kerajaan sendiri tak berubah, nobody can....

I miss your leadership Tun!

Keadaan semakin hari semakin bergerak arak berlainan.

Pak Lah tak menujukkan kualiti kepimpinan bukan sahaja untuk UMNO tetapi semua parti.

Maka, apalah gunanya dia ada disana.

Selamat Hari Raya... juga sesuram MERDEKA tahun ini...

By rashid on September 22, 2008 2:24 PM

Salam Ramadhan kepada Tun & Tun Siti Hasmah.

Memang benar, sejak kebelakangan ini parti komponen BN 'attack' antara satu sama lain sehingga SAPP pun keluar dari BN.

Hendak 'digress' sedikit, apakah pandangan Tun mengenai kenyataan Dato Seri Najib yang mengatakan Malaysia tidak akan 're-peg' Ringgit kepada Dolar?

By zabidimohamed on September 22, 2008 2:25 PM
the ship is shrinking....and Pak lah is to be blamed for that. UMNO's internal problem is more to structural. So Tun's advice is badly needed to rectify the matter.

By leading on September 22, 2008 2:26 PM

Yes, I agree. BN is still relevant. After this, I think BN will be less arrogant, more rakyat-friendly and will be stronger.

Best Regards,

By M. Shahirasul Idrewoods on September 22, 2008 2:28 PM
I may agree that BN is still relevant, because I have not seen anyone who has the capability to handle the racist problems, let alone to manage current economy situations.

Who will take charge to stop (or at least temporarily hold) the capital flights and by not just twisting figures, but in other word really working to show that Malaysia has not swallowed-up big impact from situations abroad (though not 100%). But at least we in Malaysia, has enough food, no need to drink expensive treatment water, green and quite nature to surrender and on top of that, we have knowledgeable workers. Though our economy does not have large consumption in term of people (~27 mil) - but try to make investors confident.

Hums... Would much appreciate if u can discuss further on pegging Ringgit.


By Lahm on September 22, 2008 2:28 PM
Dear Tun,

But how can non-malay parties be calling for the resignation of UMNO president. Especially since their party are also the main reason for the loss since the non-malays were also the ones that backed away from voting for BN. And yet, no one calls for the resignation of their leaders.

I also believe that when you had voiced out your dissatisfaction of the projects that you initiated, it has caused people to think your call for Abdullah's resignation was personal more than competency. Skeptics are also saying that you may have stakes in those projects that Abdullah canceled. This perception needs to be eliminated.

Salam tun,

Semoga ape yang berlaku membuka mata semua orang umno terutama YB.
mungkin mereka da lupa yang mengundi dan mencalonkon kan mereka adalah rakyat biasa ini.

jangan kerana selesa menjadi YB hingga lupa dir.

marilah kita sama2 berdoa untuk berani menukar kepimpinan yang ada demi kebaikan kita orang melayu semua.

percayalah bukan kita benci pak lah tetpi kita perlu pikir jauh ke depan. untuk kebaikan bangsa agama dan negara.

biarlah ketua selepas ini sedar yang mereka menjadi PM adalah untuk membela nasib orang melayu dan semua kaum.

Dear Tun,

Why people hate UMNO. Look at the following argument.
Tell me Tun, who is right and who is wrong. To me UMNO is dead wrong.
How to support UMNO with such draconian law;

Menurut Mufti Perlis Akta ISA di katakan tidak mengikut lunas lunas ajaran Islam.
RPK dituduh mengina Islam di bawah Akta ISA yang di katakan tidak mengikut lunas lunas ajaran Islam.

Pelik bukan?.

Pelik kerana Kerajaan UMNO yang di katakan mempertahankan Islam mengunakan undang undang yang tidak Islam untuk mengurung Raja Petra kerana menghina Islam.

By Vi on September 22, 2008 2:36 PM
I found out that in most of your blog, you stressed that BN is still the best party to rule the country. If AAB is not the best selection for the Prime Minister to handle the racial problem in Malaysia, I do believe that Najib is not a good choice either (when Najib is involved with the Mongolian case). AAB is smart enough to kick recent problems in the country to Najib. So, now everyone is looking at Najib. So, the burden is now on Najib. If Najib is not effective to bring up solutions to make the economy in Malaysia better, this will be a harm for BN to still survive in holding the power to rule the country.
With Tun 22 years experience as a PM, I do believe that Najib is not a wise choice in Tun's mind. Tun stressing that Tun had regret in choosing AAB as the prime minister after you. I hate to say that Tun chosing AAB for your deputy is simply just to reduce the threat that Najib will cause to Tun at that time.
No matter how Tun think in the past, that is no longer important. I believe that it is the time for Tun to go back to BN or Umno to restructure BN and compensate the wrong choice of Tun had made. What Malaysia and UMNO need? They just need a wise leader to lead the country which Malaysians can really share the fruits from economic development. Tun, pls come back to BN if you still think that BN is the best political party. Show to all Malaysians that you are regret for choosing AAB and you are prepared to responsible of every wrong decision AAB had made ever since you select him. Dont let Anwar to get advantages of the mess now is BN. Just like what Tun think, I also believe that it is quite impossible for 31 MPs to crossover to PR. Every political members are just in the wait and see thinking. No one will dare to take any action!
Tun, 7 millions of people already support you in your blog! please come back to political stage again for all the Malaysians!

salam Tun,

Ahmad Ismail tu memang kiasu Pak Lah...dia yang patut masuk ISA..Pak Lah sje gunakan kiasu nie untuk dapatkan kembali pengaruh org melayu..tapi x berjaya sebab org cina bkn lagi pak turut cina mmg x puas hati kt Pak Lah sejak dri dlu lagi..sebab utama ialah Pak Lah tak tau nk puaskn hati tokey2 cina..tak tau nk jaga ekonomi..yang monopoli projek hanya anak menantu..isu ahmad ismail mmg memakan diri Pak Lah kali nie...drpda isu nie ah pelengkap penolakan kaum bukan melayu kepada Pak Lah..hanya Tun sje yg tau perangai org cina..dan cra untuk 'menjaga' mereka di bumi Malaysia nie..

The Holy Quran mentioned in Chapter 4 (An Nisa'), Verse 9...

"Dan hendaklah takut kepada Allah orang-orang yang seandainya meninggalkan di belakang mereka anak-anak yang lemah, yang mereka khuatir terhadap kesejahteraan mereka. Oleh sebab itu hendaklah mereka bertakwa kepada Allah dan hendaklah mereka mengucapkan perkataan yang benar!"....

This is what Tun is doing... Keep on telling it as it is, Tun... That's the way!

Assalamualaikum Tun,

Apa yang ditulis oleh Tun sememangnya amat benar. Harap-harap terbukalah minda pemimpin Parti komponen dan Umno sendiri tentang perkara ini.Bimbang betui la nie , takut terjadi lagi rusuhan kaum. Bilalah Pak Lah nak sedar..takkan sampai ada tumpah darah baru nak tukar PM. Tun, keadaan ekonomi sekarang nie macam hampir sama ( kalau tak silap saya )macam tahun 1997..kenapa Dato'Seri Najib tak nak tambat ringgit? Semalam saja tengok berita ada pakar ekonomi, menyokong cara-cara Tun mengawal nilai ringgit..rasanya itulah yang sewajarnya kerajaan lakukan sekarang.
Semoga Allah Swt panjangkan umur Tun dan isteri. Amin.

Hidup TUN!!!.. Selamatkanlah Malaysia....

Malaysia akan selamat dengan adanya pemimpin yang tegas & berani.. Bukan lemah & lembik....

By pakpandir08 on September 22, 2008 2:43 PM
BN bukan lagi satu pilihan yg ideal seperti dahulu. Sila rujuk kepada perkara yg seperti berikut:

(1) Kelemahan BN hari ini bukan semata-mata disebabkan oleh kelemahan abdullah. Namun kelemahan abdullah telah membongkarkan situasi yg telah lama berlaku di dalam struktur pakatan BN, dimana UMNO bermahajarela dan tidak menghormati rakan kompponen yg lain.
(2) Pada pandangan orang malaysia hari ini, UMNO bukanlah seperti parti yg memperjuangkan konsep yg dipersetujui pada zaman dahulu. Pemimpin sekarang sudah dikenali umum gilakan kuasa dan merebut-rebut dengan projek kerajaan. Tun amat jelas keadaan ini sehingga meninis air mata dahulu sehingga terpaksa memaparkan senarai orang yg mendapat projek kerajaan pada satu masa ketika
(3) Apa yg perlu dihadapi oleh abdullah hari ini adalah sebuah organisasi yg penuh dengan kepentingan diri-sendiri. Dan inilah apa yg diwarisi dari zaman Tun. Kerana kelemahan kepimpinannya, masalah ini akhirnya terbongkar pada hari ini.
(4) Oleh yg demikian, jelasnya sekali masalah ini tidak boleh disalahkan kepada abdullah seorang sahaja. Ini adalah masalah aprti UMNO sendiri.

Sebagai seorang bukan melayu seperti saya, kami lebih cenderong dibawah kepimpinan orang melayu dari parti PAS dan bukannya UMNO lagi. Ini adalah kelakuan pemimpin UMNO yg bermaharajalela dan menjadikan negara ini huru-hara. Sekurang-kurangnya, PAS mempunyai dasar yg lebih adil dan saksama mengikuti ajaran Al-Quran.

Salam Tun. Saya amat sanjung tinggi peranan Tun dalam memajukan negara Malaysia. Walaupun saya di kategorikan sebagai kaum tumpang oleh Datuk Ahmad Ismail namun saya memang amat menyayangi negara Malaysia. Sejak dari bangku sekolah lagi kami kaum tumpang juga di beri pendidikan yang sempurna. Kejayaan Tun dapat di kecapi pada masa itu dengan terbinanya Lebuh Raya Timur Barat, Jambatan Pulau Pinang, perbezaan masa di antara Sabah dan Sarawak dan Semenanjung. Perhubungan diplomatik yang baik semasa zaman pemerintahan Tun di antara Malaysia dan China membolehkan kaum tumpang ini balik untuk meziarahai sanak saudara dan kawan dengan lebih selesa dan senang tanpa peraturan-peratuan yang ketat pada masa dulu. Pendek kata Tun telah banyak menyumbang kepada kemajuan negara. Harap Tun dapat menyediakan idea-idea yang baik untuk kemajuan bangsa Malaysia.
Saya bukan ahli politik atau pun pro atau kontra terhadap kerajaan. Apa yang saya idamkan menjadikan negara Tumpang saya ini satu negara yang aman, makmur dan maju.

Syabas Tun dan Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri untuk Tun sekeluarga.

Salam Tun,

Semoga Malaysia kembali seperti dahulu... Tidak berkecamuk macam sekarang ini

By MERDEKA on September 22, 2008 2:47 PM
Salam TUN,

Saya setuju "point" 15 dan 20 TUN. Negara yang majmuk seperti Malaysia, memerlukan pemimpin yang kuat. Malaysia sudah memasuki tahap "dewasa" setelah 51 tahun merdeka, dan kini permintaan Rakyat berbilang kaum terhadap kerajaan telah bertambah, bukan sahaja dari segi ekonomi, ia termasuk keadilan, keamanan, pelajaran, kecekapan, hapuskan rasuah dan sebagainya. Jadi, BN harus berubah mengikut kehendak Rakyat, mesti fokus untuk menyelesaikan masalah yang melanda negara kita sekarang, dan bukan bergaduh sesama anggota parti sendiri sekiranya ingin menang PRU akan datang...
Memang benar BN masih merupakan barisan pentadbiran yang boleh diharapkan oleh Rakyat, tetapi mereka mesti berusaha bersungguh-sungguh demi perpaduan Rakyat, janganlah bersikap rasis lagi, dengarlah suara dan permintaan Rakyat...

Assalamualaikum and a very good afternoon to all bloggers

tun, as always.. u know economy very well "doctor"..
why politicians dont want to listen to u? It's because u r no longer in the government? Well they have to think again.. at least more than me.. pointing each other wont solve the problem.. what i learnt from my parents, if u have a problem..face it and be strong.

to fellow politicians who claimed they are a leader.. please respect our former leader like Tun.

btw Tun, i like these para:

22. As the Malays say "Because of one drop of indigo, a whole pot of milk is spoilt."

23. We must not throw out the baby with the bath water.

Selamat sejahtera Tun dan semua

In reality, Malaysia has many talents.

In your quest to develop the Malays for betterments of Malaysia, and you had made several attempts to divert plenty of resources to assist the Malays, but in reality you were well informed too that Ali Baba businesses were every where too!

Undeniable about the talents were to be well exhibited, but your biggest regret would be the inability to focus on the mind changing on those poorer Malays over economics, and of course those greedy people who had capitalized your kindness, they simply abused and cheated on you.

Such shaem was on the Plaza Rakyat @ Puduraya!!

A bus terminal which caters for poorer Malaysians in the centre of KL was just abandoned for so many years!!

I blame you on this failure as it was your over excitement in KLIA, Ports, and also Double Track projects, you had ignored and failed to develop this POOREST man's transpor!

But as you are too busy to focus on many other issues, this is an issue you could not handle well, and to blame all on you is very unfair too.

Thank you for having KLCC, and we are enjoying NS Highways, but NOT LDP/SPRINT/KESAS......

Not IWK, NOT TAG monopolized by some private company!

You have God to square, and I pray for you and wish you all the best!!

Best regards,

Salam Tun,

Masakini, Pakatan Rakyat sudah menjadi alternatif yang berkesan untuk menggantikan Barisan Nasional. Jelas kelihatan pengundi muda telah pun bersiap sedia untuk menerima Kerajaan Persekutuan yang baru. Pihak Barisan Nasional perlu akur, insaf dan muhasabah diri. Hanya ada satu cara jika BN hendak mengekalkan kuasa memerintah negara iaitu dengan membuat reformasi dalaman dari segi strategi dan lebih bersikap mengambil berat akan masalah yang dihadapan rakyat marhaen saban hari. BN perlu berubah dan mencipta suatu evolusi baru jika ingin menarik perhatian anak muda sekarang. Moga negara Malaysia tercinta terus berada dalam keadaan aman, damai, harmoni, maju dan makmur serta dilindungi Allah S.W.T.

Viva Tun Berdua,
Selamat berpuasa, semoga Tun berdua mendapat rahmah Allah sentiasa. Selamat menyambut Eid-mubarak, maafkan saya jika tersilap kata dan terkasar bahasa kepada Tun.
Memang tepat sekali saranan Tun supays Puak-puak didalam BN berhenti bertelagah dan balik ke meja perundingan... tapi GERAKAN dipersilakan keluar seperti yang dihajati. BN ialah sebuah Parti Besar Berbagai Kaum yang berdaftar sedangkan PR hanyalah sebuah komuniti longgar yang bersekedudukan. Jika kita sayangkan Malaysia, usahakan supaya sebuah parti berbilang kaum tetap terus berkuasa. Ambillah iktibar sejarah didunia nyata ini, stelah Shah Iran dijatuhkan, Iran tidak menjadi lebih hebat, setelah Suharto dijatuhkan, Indonesia menjadi semakin papa, setelah Marcos dijatuhkan, Filifina masi lagi merempat dinegara sendiri... fikir dan pilihlah, terus maju atau terjerumus kelembah kemiskinan. Tun sudah beri nasihat dan amaran, jika kita masih kabur nanti tanggunglah sendiri.
Dirgahayu Tun dan Tun. Maaf zahir dan bathin.

By robert76 on September 22, 2008 2:52 PM
Tun, u r right. Sometimes I think that the country might be corrupted during Tun's time but at least the country is progressing very well. But now.....

Everyone is difficult....except maybe the gov't servant.....

Pakatan Rakyat might be able to form the government but i doubt PAS and DAP can really see eye to eye.

How to form a Good Government????

By Anjang on September 22, 2008 2:53 PM

Whether it is BN Govt, or Opposition Govt, or any whoever, whoever who runs the govt, it will still be all the govt servants etc. manning the Kementerian and Jabatan's offices. The mechanism and instrument will still be the same to service the nation. It is useless to convince the people that only BN can do the job. What we need is a strong leadership at the very top to unite the people's belief in working towards a common goal. I am so sorry Tun, I don't see anybody with that calibre in BN now.

By JML on September 22, 2008 2:53 PM
Salam Tun...
Semogo Sihat Sentiasa

marilah kita semua berdoa semoga orang-orang melayu yang telah diberi amanah untuk menentukan kepimpinan negara menukar kepimpinan sedia ada sekarang kepada yang BARU.
kita semuanya bukan benci kepada paklah tetapi jelas terbukti dia tidak boleh lagi untuk memimpin. ini bukan meminpin sebuah keluarga tetapi memimipin sebuah negara yang jauh lebih berat dan bukanya semua orang mampu untuk memikulnya. hanya yang terpilih dan betul-betul ikhlas sahaja layak untuk menjalankan amanah ini. yang meletakkan kepentingan bangsa, agama dan negara jauh dari kepentingan peribadi dan saudara terdekat kita.
jadi kepada semua YB, MT, Ketua Bahagian, Perwakilan dan semunya beranilah kerana benar. fikirlah jauh ke depan untuk menjalankan amanah Allah yang utama adalah membela bangsa di tanah airnya sendiri BNGSA MELAYU...
jadikan lah TUN sebagai sumber rujukan untukmembetulkan kesilapan yang lalu..
jangan malau untuk bertanya kerana pengalamannya selama 22 tahun belum tentu akan ada orang mampu menandinginya..

You think throwing the leader out will solved the BN problem?
You did develop Malaysia to an unprecedented level (at the cost of our future generation). Many people wanted you to go earlier. When you finally volunteered to step down, many people were very happy and thought the country could redeem what went wrong under your government.
Heck! It's even worse.Some will say the global ecomomy is the culprit. Yes, but even if the global economy wasn't this bad, the situation in this country is not any better. The economy is only adding salt to the wound. It was already bleeding, nonetheless.
The government under BN continues to make wrong decisions and to take ridiculous actions. It's the thinking and mentality of the party that put great risk to the country. Unless drastic changes on the party "culture" is taking place, changing the leader is just like eating KFC when McD tastes horrible. It's still fast food.

By xplora on September 22, 2008 2:54 PM

I agree with all the points beside

7. Now the Malays are angry with the Chinese and the Chinese are angry with the Malays. Party-wise UMNO is angry with Gerakan and MCA and Gerakan/MCA are angry with UMNO.

I personally think it should be

7. Now the Malays UMNO are angry with the Chinese Gerakan/MCA and the Chinese Gerakan/MCA are angry with the Malays UMNO. Party-wise UMNO is angry with Gerakan and MCA and Gerakan/MCA are angry with UMNO.

It is UMNO views which do not represent the whole malay views. At least most of my malay friend, do not care what UMNO has said nowadays because it is showing racism symbol.

Finally, if Koh Tsu Koon supporter is the person who tear Ahmad photos, then he and his supporter will be jailed unlike Ahmad nowadays and This is my malay friend thought.

Anyway, take care of your health, Tun!

By dheepan on September 22, 2008 2:54 PM

1. How would we know something won't work if we don't try? Let's give multiracial party a try!

2. I disagree with the statement that BN is the only model for a 'many multi' Malaysia. Singapore is a good example where multiracial party is striving and they had similar beginnings like BN. So why is it only BN faltered and PAP is thriving?

3. In my opinion, BN have effectively catered to the demands of the races in Malaysia but BN also have effectively caused the races to drift apart. BN concept is like this- 'we all can be under one roof but we can never be together' and thats how BN wants us to view Malaysia, our country.

Just my 3 cents worth of opinion. Lalala

Salam Tun,

Dah tak guna pertahankan dah Tun. Saya cadangkan Tun tubuhkan "UMNO Lagi Baru" untuk gantikan "UMNO Baru".

Saya tak kata PR akan lagi elok berbanding BN. Tapi perubahan kuasa akan menampakkan kuasa rakyat. Jika berjaya, semua kerajaan memerintah selepas ini akan lebih berkerja untuk rakyat.

Pada keadaan sekarang rakyat dalam kerugian, minyak dah turun tersangat rendah sampai rasa macam rakyat pulak yang bagi subsidi kat kerajaan.

Disebabkan isu minyak ini sahaja, saya doakan moga BN cepat mati. Tak cakna langsung hal rakyat.

By sohaimizainal on September 22, 2008 2:56 PM
Dear Tun,

I had and still believe in BN and its' ideals.

I remember having a conversation with my colleagues about 15 years ago, yes you were the PM then. We talked about politics and Gina posed a suggestion saying "why must there be race based parties within the BN. Why can't the BN be a single party that welcomes members from all races"

My response was that even if the BN subscribed to her suggestion, the structure would still be the same. The Chairman/President will be Dr. Mahathir, who will also be the person in charge of Malay affairs, Chinese affairs will be a Lee Liong Sik, Indian affairs will be Samy Vellu so on and so forth. Meaning that it will still be a rose but given a different name.

The PR parties also work in the same manner. You can take the present Penang Government as an example. The affairs of different communities are given to the leader of that particular community to manage and take care.

This clearly shows that the BN formula works in Malaysia. I have to agree with you, Tun that the component parties within BN must get back to the BN basics and discuss among themselves ways to resuscitate BN. There is no point in openly throwing brickbats at each other and at the end of the day, everybody gets hurt but the root cause is still not resolved.

To the BN leaders, please take Tun's advise and work hard to preserve and strengthen the party.

As for Tun & wife, Selamat Berpuasa & Selamat Menyambut Hari Raya Aidil Fitri.

P/S: My daughter was awfully glad that you were there to give away the scrolls at the recent Universiti Teknologi Petronas 8th Convocation. Her photos really show. Thanks Tun.

By jamallyna on September 22, 2008 2:56 PM
Salam Tun & all members,

You became a troubleshooter for nation & country when you were a PM,but now already turned upside down.I befriend with non-malays as well and they also perceive that the power transition must be xpedited asap.But as you said in earlier article 'Pak Lah pejamkan mata & pekakkan telinga" against all critics and comments from rakyat.Janganlah pula memekakkan telinga & memejamkan mata sehingga memaksa rakyat meniru apa yg terjadi di Thailand, tak pasal2 rakyat berdemonstrasi dan mengepung Putrajaya...nauzubillah...

In my opinion I confident that if someone capable to replace Pak Lah,the BN coalition parties will be strengthened and absolutely "no confident motion" will be heard...

Semoga Tun membantu menyelamatkan tanah air Malaysia yg tercinta ini ...Amin

Salam Tun

We live in a plural nation, thus we need each other to survive. I do personally hope that in any workplace there isn;t any racism been practiced. For instance the Malay hate the Chinese or vice versa or perhaps other races hate each other.

It is so sad to see this happening.

For the ISA, probably it is still relevant to ensure things are back to normalcy.

Just want the best for Malaysia.

Thank you.

my 3rd comment.

i have great respect of BN, i think it is a great concept until ppl exploited it.
But, don't just blame on the leadership alone. Young malaysian now adays, majority doesn't really mind who is in power, as long as it is not BIAS.

just look at how irritated people get when keris is uphold. a statesman fr a big country when asked to comment once said - "It is NOT THE KERIS, it is the manner and who is holding it that matters."
just look at how bloggers responded when the son-in-law shouted that they are monkeys.
just look at how disgusted malaysian get when we see the lawyer brokering judges. (this is one of the korek-korek-korek that swing the votes - who are part of them? are you?)
just look at APs being distributed in favour to create personal wealth, in the name of NEP (how many bumi really get rich through APs)
just look at how many get away unpunished - Bung Mokhtar on bocor remarks, OneEyeClose - MP, the son-in-law and keris Hisham.

Hopefully, we get a leader, INCLUDING YOU, will speak up on behalf every UNJUST. NOT ONLY RACE, not by getting votes through being ULTRA.

A Poem of "The evil of silence" dedicated to you.

In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me —
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

Dear Tun,

Now the Malays are angry with the Chinese and the Chinese are angry with the Malays.

The above statement is UNTRUE, our economy and political problems are not because of racial issue. Chinese did not cause the Malay to suffer and vice versa. The issue is with the BN government who led the people down. People are not happy with the way BN is ruling the country.

By KhairulHisham-London on September 22, 2008 3:04 PM

Salaam Tun,

What's happening now in Malaysia has never happened before during your era. No Hindraf, No Ahmad Ismail, Nobody dares to play the race card to the level or degree that we are seeing now.

Why? Because of the strong and decisive leadership by you (your political enemies may say because of your dictatorship style)

But the fact remains that race relationship was far much better from 1981-2003. Those who deny this fact are indeed blind and should be sent to "Pusat latihan Orang Buta Brickfields' to learn new skills in order to survive in this era.

Another factor is due to indecisiveness and 'flip-flop' stand of AAB. At one time he said Ahmad Ismail should apologise, then he said Ahmad did not mean to be a racist, then after that he told all of us that Ahmad was too much. Even my kids are confused. Let alone the British investors that are ready to open their company branch in Malaysia.

Please accept the fact that BN consist of at least 3 main racist parties; UMNO (Malay racist party), MCA (Chinese racist party) and MIC (Indian racist party). These parties are racists. Period.

So to manage and control three different race-based party, BN needs a very strong type of leader like Tun Dr Mahathir.

If the government arrested Sin Chew reporter and Teresa under ISA only to be released in a short time, why on the first place bother to arrest them. Both Ahmad and the reporter should be arrested. You have done that during Operasi Lallang. You arrested leaders from opposition, Lim Kit Siang as well as the Malay champion like Ibrahim Ali that time

When AAB arrested them, the Chineses are angry.When he released them in such a short time as if the initial arrest were made without any strong legal basis, the Malays are angry.

Now Teresa's accusation about 'dog food' quality for ISA detainees published everywhere, even here in the UK. So what benefits that our country gained from AAB short-mindedness and recent ISA outburst? Nothing.

One thing for sure, every time I passed-by Madame Tussaud here on my way to Regents Park Mosque to pray, I am positively sure that if Abdullah Badawi wax to be put inside Madame Tussaud, they will be spoilt for choices, in term of as to which sleeping styles to select from many different styles of AAB caught sleeping in public!

By nusams on September 22, 2008 3:04 PM
Assalamualaikum Tun,
At least the chinese,indian and malays in the BN coalition still got one thing in common; non are willing to speak up and stand up for the truth against Abdullah Badawi.

By pdm1421 on September 22, 2008 3:05 PM
A wife told me: 'I rather have a dominant and slightly naughty husband (mean sometimes fool around outside) but can earn a lot of money and protect my family; rather than married a mr. nice guy who cannot make money and yet always surrender to outsider who I quarrel with"

Chinese got one word "If a man not naughty, woman will not like him"

To certain extent, I think sometimes this apply to a leader.

What for we have a Mr. Nice guy, who only know how to visit the immigration department, taking LRT with rakyat and etc, BUT do not know how to make the country stable and prosperous.

Beside angry and dislike, sometimes we feel the SHAME of being lead by him.

Barisan Nasional component party's leader seem to be panic without the right leadership among them. This situation gave advantages for the opposition, people seem to have no better choice than giving the opposition an opportunity. The culture of BN make leaders not willing to give but only take, so restructuring BN is not easy if the leaders are greed. Each of them still protecting for their own possition. This mean we still do not have the real leaders to lead us. It is because our country do not practise meritokracy.

Salam Tun,

Artikel Tun menunjukkan keadaan dlm BN sudah semakin parah. Makanya anwar berani cabar paklah untuk sidang tergempar. Beliau ingin mengambil kesempatan atas keadaan sekarang. Waktu sama anwar juga tahu paklah gelabah dan takkan berani sahut cabaran, jadi serampang dua mata - lebih masa buat anwar kerana belum cukup katak
- mcm catur, anwar dah jalan, sekarang giliran paklah
pula. jadi rakyat dah lupa janji 16/9. Kemaluan anwar tak
lah besar !

dalam apajua perbalahan, kalau isu sebenar tidak mau diakui, kita akan ungkit segala macam ketidakpuasan hati. Tidak akan ada penyelesaian, lepas satu2 di ungkit. puncanya tidak disentuh langsung walaupun masing2 tahu dan cuma pendamkan. isu utama paklah, tapi yang diungkit sentimen kaum...

sudah2lah paklah. Tolonglah...rakyat nak cari makan. Dalam keadaan berpecah belah begini, mustahil negara dapat menangani masalah ekonomi global yang semakin parah. Hari2 berita politik, berita ekonomi makin meruncing cuba di 'downtone' kan, seolah2 negara tidak ada masalah.

By hazard72 on September 22, 2008 3:13 PM
Assalamualaikum Tun,

Apa yang Tun perkatakan bahawa BN masih relevan memang tidak dapat dinafikan. Dari sejarah memang BN telah memainkan peranan yang begitu besar sekali dalam pembangunan negara Malaysia.

Walaubagaimanapun, hari ini kita boleh lihat disebabkan kepimpinan yang lemah dalam BN menyebabkan parti ini sedang menuju kemusnahan. Sehingga diantara parti kompenan dalam BN saling menuding jari antara satu sama lain untuk menutup kelemahan masing-masing.

Negara ini memerlukan pemimpin yang dapat menyatukan rakyat berbilang kaum. Jika dilihat kepada senario sekarang pemimpin-pemimpin tak kira dari mana-mana parti, sewenang-wenangnya meniupkan api permusuhan antara kaum.

Minta jasa baik untuk Tun melakukan sesuatu bagi memperbetulkan keadaan ini. Jangan sampai nasi sudah menjadi bubur.

Selamat berpuasa Tun. Wassalam.

Dear Tun,

You are right,if we still do not changed the captain, the ship is sinking fast and is going faster than we thought.Few clients of mine has pulling out their investment in Malaysia recently not only because of the unstable political & economy issues but also lost confidence towards our government. They have set up their factory for the plastic medical equipments and obtained an apporval from the custom execise in PUTRAJAYA and confirmed the item imported to M'sia will be tax free but was being charged 24 % tax when the containers arrived in KLIA cargo simply because that the officer in KLIA refused to recognise the approval letter from Putrajaya & Kelana Jaya. Few millions of investment left M'sia and several company are doing so soon. What the hell is going on in the government departments again !! I have no explainations for my foreign investors but shameful for our government.

By OurMalaysia on September 22, 2008 3:15 PM
How r u, Tun??
I agree w u that we r all looking for scapegoats when something is not right.. MCA & Gerakan are angry at UMNO, UMNO is also unhappy w them bcos they didnt or couldn't deliver the chinese votes to BN.. No one is really looking within themselves to see wat the real raesons r for their defeat..
Do they not see if this problem is solved soon, it might break us up as a nation??? To break is easy but to build it up again may take us another eternity..

For those Racists who are going to jump on TUN over this Blog;

I was alerted to read the today's NST on a Q&A with Tan Sri Dr Khoo Kay Kim on the current issue of the Race Relations, which I found very educational and invigorating that answers all our doubts all along. Please make an opportunity to read it. You would not be disappointed!

Incidentally, on page 2, Pak Lah was seen seated next to his wife who was holding a Quran. I wonder if "their air sembahyang" tak batal lagi, or maybe Islam Hadhari allows it kot?!

Can you highlight how Dato' Najib can do better ( if Najib will be the PM). may be we miss that points. Can you list out all things can do better if new government fill have to setup soon.

Akum Tun,

Pak Lah telah gagal menyatukan BN serta tidak dapat menangkis serangan dari pembangkang,seperti kes2 berprofile tinggi seperti pengambilan tanah di Pulau Pinang, Najib dengan wanita Mongolia(mengapa menahan RPK dalam ISA), Pak Lah asik tidur serta tiada perkembangan ekonomi.Akibat itu sebilangan rakyat telah yakin dengan tomahan2 pembangkang walaupun adanya yang tidak benar.

Akhir2 sekali harga minyak meningkat dan kini dengan harga minyak dunia turun keparas USD105 per barrel, kalau mengikut pengiraan purata sebulan USD 100 per barrel.
USD100 x RM3.48/159 litre = RM2.19 per litre
discount 10% = RM 1.97 per litre

Sekarang rakyat yang menderita terpaksa menanggung kerajaan dengan membayar RM 2.50 seliter iaitu perbezaan 0.53sen. Sungguh lucu sekali apabila menanggung kerajaan.Hehehe

Oleh saya yakin BN akan tewas pada PRU13 akan datang, memandangkan sikap pemimpin BN yang ketidakperihatian terhadap rakyat.

By chan on September 22, 2008 3:17 PM
Dear Tun,
I wish someone can safe the economy of our country. Like what Tun quoted at your previous write-up, the world is facing a bad time but non of our leaders notice it coming. They only worried about their own interest. I'm really worried, day by day we see the currency shooting up, business decreasing, bad collection, things getting more and more expensive. It had affected not only the lower income group but also the middle income group. I also agreed with Tun if we re-peg the Ringgit. I do not know how much it will be, but for me I think it shouldn't be more than RM 3.10 = USD 1.00. Althought may not be a good revenue for our export market, but most of our operating cost are due to imports. If import cost are high, it will not benefit the export as well because of the cost of operation are high too. God bless this country!

By IjaLittleSamurai on September 22, 2008 3:17 PM
I agreed with you Tun. My mother always said whatever happens, she will always with UMNO dulu kini dan selamanya, and I believe we should not run away or blame each other. We should ask ourself what went wrong and do some correction. Please do PDCA cycle, Plan, Do, Check, and Action.

"15. I once said Malaysia as a multi-racial country needs a strong government. Multi-racial countries have to face race relation problems. With the need to handle racial problems, the managment of the economy becomes extremely difficult."

Saya sangat setuju tun. kawan-kawan saya samada orang melayu, india dan cina mengeluh pasal kerajaan yang lembek ni.

menurut mereka, kita hadapi krisis 3F sekarang ni (Foods, Fuels and Finance) tapi kerajaan sekarang hilang punca dan arah tuju pulak.

kawan-kawan dalam parti pembangkang pun takut. mereka cuma nak membangkang je.. tapi bila kerajaan sekarang ni goyang, mereka takut mereka terpaksa pikul beban tu nanti. jadi mereka minta supaya kerajaan yang ada sekarang ni lakukan sesuatu supaya menjadi kuat semula. jelas mereka mereka hanya tahu membangkang je... mereka tak berminat untuk memerintah..

By mycekikdarah on September 22, 2008 3:20 PM

I hope the current administration would take heed of your opinions and views, although not in the open, but still these thoughts be given due considerations.

For all Malaysians.

By Jeff on September 22, 2008 3:20 PM
The current BN is hopeless.
They did not use ISA on Ahmad who try to stir racial disharmony but choose to arrest someone who is innocent.
The excuses were simply illogical. The government thinks the rakyat is stupid? If they continue to treat us with nonsense, they will continue to rot and fail.

By Asaby on September 22, 2008 3:20 PM

Dear Tun

The country needs a strong leader to overcome all or most of the existing problems! The longer Pak Lah stays in power the country will be in chaos! None of the politicians are bold enough to challenge the top leaders and fight for the truth all the way i.e Pak Lah must go!!! If he remains PM after the UMNO meeting in December, I dread the worst to come to all Malaysians.


By laksemana on September 22, 2008 3:20 PM


Apa yang Tun huraikan satu per satu sememangnya kebenaran yang sebenarnya sedang berlaku.Kepimpinan yang ada kini telah hilang pertimbangan.Gantung yang satu tapi tangkap yang lain.ketidaktentuan menentukan keputusan atau tindakan telah menyebabkan kebangkitan lebih ramai kemarahan antara kaum dan menjadi alasan untuk menjadikan pembangkang lebih kuat dan BN menjadi terus lemah.

BN sesungguhnya masih relevan dan terus relevan untuk sesebuah negara berbilang kaum.

Buah fikiran Tun sememangnya menampakkan apa yang berlaku sekarang dan bagaimana cara terbaik untuk mengatasi dan menyelesaikan masaalah ini.Tetapi adakah orang yang berada di dalam, berani dan sanggup melakukannya apa yang dicadangkan oleh Tun dari luar demi bangsa dan negara dan bukan kerana kepentingan peribadi semata2.

Katahuilah dan akuilah yang berada "di dalam" akan apa yang diperkatakan oleh Tun itu sebenar2nya benar dan itu sahaja cara untuk mengatasinya.Maka,dengarlah dan lakukanlah.

Mungkin kita bukan negarawan,mungkin kita bukan patriotik,mungkin juga kita tidak menghiraukan orang lain dan mungkin kita tidak menghiraukan apa yang berlaku disekeliling kita, Tapi apa yang penting sekali walau apa pun pandangan kita, kita harus hidup dalam keadaan aman dari segala espek baik dari segi politik, ekonomi, bangsa dan juga agama.

Maka, orang2 "di dalam" lakukan lah sesuatu kerana ianya adalah lebih baik di lakukan dari dalam.Ianya akan menjadi buruk sekiranya ianya berlaku dari luar.Renung2kan lah, NAUZUBILLAH-MINZALIKH.

While I disagreed slightly with your earlier post (BN I), I now fully agree with your latest post ( BN II), especially your view that there is need for 'new thinking on BN" while maintaining the underlying spirit of inter-ethnic accommodation.

Also, on the economic side, Al Jazeera today 22/9, quoted an economist from Third World Network who pointed out the ironic double standard of the current US government's bailout of Wall Street versus accusation of cronyism against your administration's intervention to rescue government-linked companies in 1997.

You must feel vindicated ! Well done for doing the right thing.

Salam Tun. Saya sebenarnya agak terkilan juga negara kita sudah merdeka 51 tahun tetapi perkauman masih lagi wujud dalam diari masyarakat kita. Sudah 51 tahun negara merdeka tetapi perpaduan kita gagal utuhkan.

Hairan... sudah 51 tahun masih 'perpaduan teras kejayaan' diungkapkan. Tun, pendapat peribadi saya dengan jujur saya beranggapan masalah perpaduan sebenarnya berpunca daripada sistem pendidikan yang lemah! Pendidikan kita sebenarnya menggalakkan perkauman.

Tidakkah kita lihat bahawa mengelompok kanak-kanak mengikut ras menanamkam sikap perkauman? Sekarang inipun Menteri Pelajaran telah mengatakan sekiranya PnP Matematik dan Sains diajar semula dalam Bahasa Melayu, ia akan bermula di sekolah rendah lagi. Darjah satu. Katanya untuk elak kekeliruan pelajar.

Jadi, dalam hal perkauman bagaimana? perlukah kita menunggu semua kanak-kanak mencapai umur 13 tahun baru ditanamkan sikap tidak 'berpuak-puak?'. Ini juga perlukan pendekatan 'mula dari bawah...'

Saya bukanlah pakar bahkan saya cumalah semut kecil lagi tidak berkuasa. saya sekadar memberi komentar apa yang sepatutnya dilakukan untuk mewujudkan bangsa Malaysia sejati.

SK, SJKC, SJKT bagaikan kelompok parti.Bergabung membentuk kerajaan. Kanak-kanak dari 3 jenis sekolah inilah mewujudkan pemimpin BN, MCA, MIC. Sampai bila ingin begini. Percayalah, perkauman akan terus menebal sekiranya sistem pendidikan tidak diubah mulai sekarang!

Lihatlah apa sudah jadi sekolah wawasan? sekolah integrasi? semua untuk mewujudkan perpaduan. Tetapi hasilnya? nothing! selagi SK, SJKC, dan SJKT tidak difikirkan semula, beginilah kita... bertelagah sesama sendiri, curiga-mencurigai...

Namun, apa yang paling membuatkan saya kagum pada Tun ialah ketika krisis kewangan pada 1997-1999. Yang mana ketika itu Tun menongkah arus. Dan ramai mungkin yang kata ketika itu bahawa tindakan Tun "Bodoh" "Bebal"......namun hakikatnya??????
Ramai yang terpaksa tabik spring kepada Tun kerana berjaya mengemudi Malaysia daripada terjerumus kedalam krisis kewangan yang lebih teruk.
Ramai cendekiawan dan ekonomis yang terkejut dengan kejayaan tersebut.

Dalam konteks internal pula saya berpendapat tidaklah salah pun sekiranya Tun memberikan teguran... " Ambil Yang Jernih Dan Buang Yang Keroh "

Kalau pakatan rakyat memerintah ,saya rasa akan berlaku huru hara,sekarang pun pelbagai isu perkauman dan agama dimainkan walaupun mereka tahu ia begitu sensitif, saya pun tidak tahu berapa lama orang melayu akan menahan sabar dan saya rasa begitu juga cina, ini disebabkan oleh pihak-pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab mencetuskan api kemarahan termasuk majlis peguam dan sesetengah ahli politik yang mengambil langkah mudah dan sempit untuk mendapat sokongan.Saya rasa kemarahan semakin meningkat hanya tunggu meletus sahaja jika perkara ini tidak dibendung.Pentadbiran sekarang terlalu terbuka dan membenarkan orang terlalu bebas bersuara termasuk menyentuh sensetiviti sesuatu kaum, sepatutnya ini tidak berlaku kerana boleh mencetuskan keadaan yang tidak tenteram.Diharap tindakan ISA dikenakan dengan tegas keatas sesiapa yang memulakan atau menyentuh isu-isu sensitif.

Anwar had gone tru quite a long training under you sir. And you had confirmed his ability to run the country. This endorsement is very important. Out of personal disliking, you suddenly disapprove him.

I know deep in your heart you will agree that Anwar is still the best choice we have at this very moment, to save the country from all the havoc.

so, please sir, for once,for the sake and for the love of our country. If you could probably try to admit this fact. Just throw away your pride for a moment and declare the truth.

2)What do you think of the post of FM 2?Do you agree that it is about time to get rid of it?
3)You mention that the BN is still the best political solution Provider.How?For once I cannot view the current leaders are capable to sort out a new path for the rakyat and economy.What is the new ideal solution for all or where is the central line which every one should adhere to?
4)The Chinese would want the FM portfolio back.Can it be done?

Please do something TUN.Majority of the politicians we have in UMNO are lickers.They are empty cans,as a result they play money politics in order to win(source from govt. tenders)as such they are tight lip in addressing issues which affects their livelihood.At least our former DeFacto law minister has the guts to quit and put his foot down.
I agree with that BN is still the best party at this time,what we need is a concerted effort from all parties to sit down and think of reengineering back BN,personal and race matter aside.
The only person that can bring all BN component parties together is only YOU TUN.

umpama orang yang terjun ke laut dengan sendirinya dari kapal,
meraung dan memekik supaya orang lain terjun juga bersama kita kerana kapal akan karam dan nakhoda kapal tak pandai kemudi kapal...tapi kita sendiri tenggelam timbul tenggelam timbul...masih dok fikir nak berenang semula ke kapal atau terus tenggelam dan lemas sendirian.Sedangkan masa terus berlalu.....

bila kita rasa kita saja yang betul..orang lain semuanya nampak salah...bila kita rasa mungkin kita tersilap,maka mungkin ada orang lain yang betul...dan bila kita rasa menyesal...sudah tentu kita tersilap...maka masih ramai lagi orang yang sudi bersama kita dan menolong kita...

bila kita berjuang demi agama,bangsa...maka kepentingan diri dan peribadi kena letak ketepi.....
orang tak akan percayakan atau ikut cakap kita selamanya kerana orang lain juga ada hati dan akal...

Ya, Im totally agree with you Tun.

We must not throw out the baby with the bath water. "It's may sound funny, but very strict quote"...

BN still very indeed relevant...but the leader on the top "now" is no longer relevant....pleaselah....

Salam buat Tun dan rakan bloggers,

51 tahun merdeka adalah bukti kukuh bahawa BN adalah yang terbaik. Kalau DSAI dikatakan pemimpin baik,sebelum dipecat dulu dah tunjuk hero tapi dia ini lain yang ditunjuknya.

YB T Kok, dulu masa DSAI ditahan dan dipenjarakan tak dengar pun DSAI merungut tentang makanan,kenapa YB Kok merungut? Dasar YB pembelit , kalau kali kedua kena tahan saya syorkan YB jenis ini diberi makan sama jenis dengan biawak ( makan bangkai),mula mula cakap lain esok cakap lain,lu punya hati banyak busuk ma....

maaf Tun , manusia ini mencari politik class.

selamat berpuasa.

By Fiery Snake on September 22, 2008 3:37 PM
Dear Tun,

My father and my whole family have all the high respects towards you. We all cried when you announced that you were going to step down. Looking back at the video, everybody was surprised and shocked with your decision and all of them were feeling sad at that moment. Everybody, BUT....Pak Lah! Try to look back at the video. Muka yang langsung tidak ikhlas.

Anyway, of course Pak Lah tak nak resign. Who is behind him? KJ...Pak Lah is like a puppet. KJ has his own agenda. He will make sure he will be in a strong position before he allows Pak Lah to resign. KJ ni dia macam Anwar lah....the younger, much more educated version of Anwar.

By the way, the best candidate to be our PM will be either one of these two:

1) Tengku Razaleigh hamzah
2) Musa Hitam

But then, the question is how to get these either one?

To Our Beloved Tun Dr Mahathir....pls pls pls....Be our PM back even for a short period, just to repair what ever the damage that Pak Lah has done. I pray for your good health and May Allah bless you!! I love you!

By Mahadzir on September 22, 2008 3:38 PM
Assalammualaikum TUN

Seperti artikel Tun sebelum ini,tonggak kekuatan BN adalah terletak kepada kekuatan UMNO.Untuk mengembalikan kekuatan BN;UMNO perlu diperkukuhkan semula.

UMNO harus dikembalikan kepada ahli-ahlinya kerana UMNO kepunyaan semua dan bukan hanya sekelompok sahaja.

Budaya orang UMNO harus diubah,UMNO bukan untuk mengkayakan diri atau kumpulan tertentu.

Percayalah..apabila UMNO menjadi kuat,BN akan menjadi kuat dan semua parti komponen akan bersatu dan inilah kekuatan BN yang tiada pada Pakatan Rakyat.

Permisi Tun,
Yes the time has come for BNll.
Pak Dolah must go first, .
ALL the component mca, mic , gerakan and umno must elect their presidents,
Cabinet major reshuffle with new PM.
THen put all the thrust with full power to propel this malaysia to new height.
Review the 2009 budget and put every thing on track again.
THe opposition party should put on assesment about their performances in the five states they are governing. Have they deliver the goods?.
Some one from BN or better still all those BN taiko must do all the talking to counter all d bad mouth from the oppsition with the same tune.
Tun , I praise for your good health, maaf zahir bathin.

By skip on September 22, 2008 3:41 PM
Dear Tun, you are obsolutely right that the BN concept is very much relevant and even if the opposition is in the government, they still have to use the BN concept where all races need to work hand in globe. No single race can rule this country be it Chinese, Indian or Malay. They still have to work and cooperate closely together.

I do not know why the BN component parties are so afraid to kick out leaders who are non performance and have no ideas on how to rule the country and solve problems. What are there to loose? Nothing! at the most you will only be passed on for some other leaders who like to 'bodek' the leadership. But you be proud of yourself for holding your head up because you have stood your ground. Come on leaders stand up and be counted! Do not be afraid, please save this country from the imminent disaster! It is coming if you all do not boot out the present leadership and with the global economic downturn looming, the disaster is definately coming our way. Amen.

By perwarisBN on September 22, 2008 3:43 PM

Salam TUN,

Really agree with your thoughts esp point no. 19.

Stop all the nonesense, wake up and start working. There are many things ahead need to done(3F= fuel/food/financial)

Kerajaan BN,kerajaan yg disegani oleh semua parti.Namun disebabkan oleh faktor2 seperti yg sudah jelas,BN tumbang. Tapi setakat itu sahajakah kemampuan pemimpin kita?

Sebagai perwarisBN, saya tidak jemu mengatakan kepada sume rakan pembangkang, yg BN is still the best solution provider.As per your thoughts, there's no party that have this type of formula:

multi-racial + multi-lingual + multi-religious + multi-cultural country = BN

Sebagai org muda,sy dah jemu dgn propaganda pembangkang.We need a new BN,fresh thoughts but still hold to the basic.

We need you TUN..PM utk kali ke-2??

By Ir. Syahrizan on September 22, 2008 3:43 PM
Asalamualaikum and Hi,

May Allah bless you Tun, your family and the rest of Malaysia citizens. A very wise advice from a senior citizen; which were once a head of our country. Tun Dr. Mahathir has his share of our finest history in developing Malaysia and whether we like him or not, he has proven it! Malaysia Boleh!

Although you're powerless now, I believe your words are listened even more via the internet blogging world. I believe the power-of-speech you're yielding now is far more superior than those people in our weak Government and those culprits from the Oppositions.

You are a prime example of 'freedom of speech'. While the Opposition's blog kept on censoring Pro-Government's comments, and the Government's blog kept on censoring Anti-Government comments; you on the other hand, allows a handful of these Pro-Government and Opposition's comments to seep into your blog website. Thus giving a full view of the entire Malaysia perspective on politics, sociology and economics.

Never I have seen a political-based blogging website has such higher degree of credibility and freedom. Anwar, Raja Petra and other blogging websites are rubbish, gibberish and one-sided political drama.

As for your share of opinion up there, I have to agree, our BN components are starting to shaken up. They should stop acting like a small 2 years old kid and start thinking like a grown up. They should loosen up a little bit. Take a deep breath, and discuss professionally amongst themselves on how to pressure Pak Lah's resignation as soon as possible.

Restoration of Barisan Nasional credibility must commence now and it should start with the resignation of Pak Lah. The other leaders in UMNO should view this matters seriously and don't take things for granted. BN and UMNO are at the brink of destruction. I really wonder why the Malays in UMNO are still silencing? Silence of the lamb 'kot'? That 'gula-gula' given out by Pak Lah will not last long my dear Malays.

The world economy is collapsing due to weak Dollar and we have no time to play politics; its time to stabilize our economy. Once, in the past, during the days of Tun Dr. Mahathir premiership, our country's economy are nicknamed as the Oriental Tiger. Today, we are no more than a toothless tiger waiting to be devour by the bigger lions out there.

May Allah bless us all in this month of Ramadhan Al-Mubarak.

By Kak Long SJ on September 22, 2008 3:44 PM
Dearest Tun,

Agree with Tun, in this time of re-branding and re-structuring, it is timely that UMNO and BN to review and re-structure the org respectively. But I’m not seeing it happening, not this near future. It is business as usual at all grass-root levels. Nobody is leaving any post, especially the old timers who had been there ever since due to the “pak-turut” ability. Many are without constructive ideas but are there due to claimed loyalty, but at any opportunity will have lots to bicker at each other. How can we progress?

I am at the grassroots and love UMNO and BN, but with what’s happening, I now understand the stand I took in protesting the 2008 election. Regret it, but had no choice. On the other hand, one thing good had surfaced, the truth in every character/player. Just hope the damage is remediable.

Salam. Selamat Berbuka Tun dan keluarga.

By zal on September 22, 2008 3:45 PM
Dear Tun,
Yes, BN is like a sick patient at present that needs to be resuscitated accordingly. A good doctor will try to identify the problems,make a correct diagnosis and offer the best of treatment available. However at present there are only witch doctors making the patient sicker.

Yang dihormati TDM

Adakah boleh kita katakan makanan ini, sebagai makanan Anjing

a) Nasi,Lauk telur, kuah gulai dan timun.
Atau b) Nasi bubur,Lauk sayur dan Lobak Asin.
Atau c) Tose, dal, susu masam dan sambal kelapa.

Kalau saya katakan (a) adalah makanan Anjing = Saya pasti Melayu Akan Marah
Kalau saya katakan (b) adalah makanan Anjing = Saya pasti Cina Akan Marah
Kalau saya katakan (c) adalah makanan Anjing = India Akan Marah

Semua makanan yang disebut diatas itu adalah makanan standard Malaysia, mengapakah ia dikatakan Makanan Anjing, saya sebagai orang melayu sangat rasa terhina kerana makanan (a) itulah yang membesarkan kami sekeluarga dan ia menjadi makanan sarapan setiap keluarga melayu yang berpendapatan sederhana dan rendah, adakah makanan kami disamakan dengan makanan ANJING wajarkah, bantulah kami Dr.M sabar kami ada batasnya! Jangan lagi kami diinjak-injak sebegini, kami melayu ada maruah.

By Chedet_Jr on September 22, 2008 3:46 PM
Salam TUN,
Memang tepat analisa yang Tun berikan,
Sekarang kita dpt lihat yang parti komponen BN tidak mempunyai semangat persahabatan dan kerjasama sebagai satu pasukan lagi.
Masing-masing cuba menjadi jaguh kampung bagi kaum mereka sahaja dan mengeluarkan kenyataan-kenyataan yang menyinggung perasaan kaum lain.
Pada masa yang sama parti pembangkang mengambil kesempatan ini bagi menanam perasaan benci masyarakat kepada BN melalui ROAD TOUR mereka terutama di 5 negeri yang mereka perintah. Pelbagai perkara dibangkitkan didalam siri ceramah mereka, dan dengan keadaan percakaran diantara parti komponen BN sekarang yang tersebar luas didada-dada akhbar maka mereka (parti pembangkang)mendapat kelebihan.
Saya hanyalah Insan kerdil yang tidak mempunyai apa-apa pangkat dan pengaruh di dalam sistem politik Malaysia. Tetapi apa yang saya perhatikan, dan hendak saya nyatakan ialah..
Sudah sampai masanya kita semua (parti kompenan BN)membuang yang keruh dan mengambil yang jernih. Janganlah hanya tahu menjaga kepentingan peribadi iaitu pangkat dan harta...berhentilah dari apa yang anda semua lakukan dan perhatikanlah kami yang berada di bawah ini. Malaysia yang disayangi sedang menuju kearah kehancuran.

By mafiapg on September 22, 2008 3:48 PM

Ya . saya memang bersetuju dengan Tun supaya BN duduk berbincang dgn semua anggotanya untuk menjelaskan kedudukan sebenar UMNO , MCA , MIC dan lain2. Yang perlu di jelaskan lagi tentang sejarah penubuhan BN dan apakah peranan UMNO dalam pembentukan BN. Sejarah politik kita harus dicerita kepada rakyat untuk pemahaman yang jelas. Sukatan pelajaran sejarah di sekolah juga perlu diperkemas dan semua maklumat harus lebih detail lagi. Ini untuk menyedarkan pelajar tentang susahnya mencapai kemerdekaan dan asas2 penubuhan BN yang tersiratnya adalah untuk mewujudkan persefahaman antara kaum.

Nampaknya keterbukaan dan ketelusan yang dianjurkan oleh BN sekarang ini rupanya banyak membawa kepada kehancuran dari kebaikan. Dari pemerhatian saya , sejak 4 tahun ini , akibat banyak pendedahan2 yang berlaku dalam negara lah yang telah membuatkan pergolakan dalam BN. Sebab itulah kita perlu ada ISA dan OSA untuk menjaga kepentingan negara dan bukan kepentingan individu.

Jadi untuk menyelesaikan perkara2 ini bukanlah mudah. Setelah hampir 39 tahun selepas peristiwa 69' kita berusaha menjaga negara kita dari dirosakkan dgn dakyah2 perkauman ini . Usaha ini nampaknya bagai retak menanti belah. Saya rasa Tun patut masuk campur dalam urusan ini kerana ini adalah untuk keselamatan negara yang Tun kasihi. Tolonglah Tun buatlah sesuatu agar kita melayu ,cina dan india dapat hidup bersama kembali seperti dulu tanpa banyak bicara mengenai hak - hak melayu. Yang penting mereka dapat menghormati hak-hak melayu dan sebaliknya hak mereka untuk mencari rezeki di Tanah Melayu tidak akan diganggu. Sama-sama lah kita bertolak ansur. Beginilah yang berlaku di zaman Tun menjadi PM kalau tak salah saya.

Akhir sekali bagaimana pandangan Tun untuk menghadapi ancaman Anwar Ibrahim? Beliau ini lebih menakutkan kita.

By jamil on September 22, 2008 3:52 PM
Salam Tun

Agak pelik jugak sesetengah kenyataan Tun. contohnya BN masih relevan..jika masih relevan, siapakah pemimpin pemimpin pelapis kerajaan BN ...jika sungguh Pak Lah tiada langsung karisma dan tak patut meneruskan menjadi PM, kenapa semua Pemimpin BN takut bersuara?Tun pun telah menukar timbalan sebanyak 3 kali kerana tidak bole mencari pemimpin pelapis yg layak.Agak sedih melihat BN yg tak sampai 5 tahun bole sampai haru biru . Sebenarnya walaupun idea multi racial itu relevan dan lengkap untuk Malaysia, tapi atas dasar korupsi dan penyalahgunaan kuasa yg meladak dalam BN, parti itu tersungkur jatuh dan susah nak bangun dah.alangkah bagusnya jika Tun mengubah cara Tun dan mula menekankan idea PR iaitu ketelusan, dan Islamic approach.bermula dengan kes DSAI.Insyallah

By DAH Ikhwan on September 22, 2008 3:53 PM

Assalamualaikum Tun,

I agree fully with your views, Tun. The only hope for this country to survive and continue to prosper is for the component parties of BN to work together as before. There must be spirit of give and take among these political parties and racial rethorics must be minimised in order to prevent BN disintegration. The racist political atmosphere make the Malays/Bumiputera moving to one side and the Chinese and Indians to the other side of the political divide. This is a very unhealthy and dangerous prospect for our country. A Statement by an MCA vice president on this matter today is very relevant.

Anwar may be very naieve to think thatMalays, Chinese and Indians could united under his umbrella. The Malays/Bumiputeras will not abandon UMNO or PBB(in Sarawak) as these are the only parties that guarantee their survival in their own country. Given such a scenario, I believe PAS is likely to pull out of Pakatan Rakyat, otherwise it becomes the only awkward man with Anwar, and very vulnerable in the emergency general election soon(if there is one).

Malay/Bumiputera voters' loyalty to these parties is very high. A multiple regression analysis of UMNO votes in 2008 election in the Peninsular Malaysia confirm a high Malay loyalty to UMNO. This factor will deter any Malay MP from leaving UMNO, otherwise he will lose, should general election come soon.

For detailed analysis, please see article 'Analisis Undi UMNO dalam pilihanraya 2008: Kajian Kesetiaan Pengundi dan Ahli Parlimen UMNO', di Blog saya seperti di bawah.

I think Pak Lah should just gracefully step down as soon as possible.

By pg13 on September 22, 2008 3:55 PM
I agree that we need a strong government. But then again, which country doesn't?
The BN platform is obsolete as Malaysia no longer needs a racial based party that 'pretends' to champion communal interest. If Pakatan Rakyat is the only option to get change in this direction, so be it!

By nmjnh on September 22, 2008 4:00 PM
I respect your decision to uphold with the stance that BN is still the best to rule the country given all its leaders are cooperated with each other for the goodsake of the country.

However, since the problem now is with the leaderships, with most of the components in the BN, thus something drastic must be done for the BN survival itself.

Any delay to the change would severely resulted in the breakdown of the BN itself. People need a more reliable and capable leader to lead the country.

Of course Pakatan Rakyat is not as strong as the BN as it is only come into establishment since last election. However, one thing for sure, its leader Anwar Ibrahim recently is the best leader in our political scenario as proven by his capability of bringing together DAP and PAS which BN failed to do for decades.

By Neil on September 22, 2008 4:00 PM
Tun, The problem is umno been a racist party and led by racist leaders continue to treat other components parties as servants or lapdogs.Either we form multi racial parties or give Anwar a chance to show his ways of governing the country.I don't mind to take a chance.

What is practically not relevant is the current leadership and its premiership.

By yourhighness on September 22, 2008 4:09 PM

Pimpinan MCA semacam jaguh Cina kerana pemilihan parti.
Pimpinan UMNO semacam jaguh Melayu kerana pemilihan parti.
Pimpinan MIC semacam jaguh India kerana everything has been lost.

By Tanah Melayu on September 22, 2008 4:10 PM
1. Yang tak sedar diri Pak Lah

2. Umno, MCA, MIC tak perform pun sebab Pak Lah

3. Sebab kalau berjaya - mengaku sebab "kepimpanan saya" bila kalah mengaku laa gak... tak payah nak betulkan...lagi rosak gayanya..henti saja

4. Najib kene perform. Najib kena jadi Wira orang Melayu dan dalam masa yang sama kena juga jaga kepentingan bangsa lain.

5. Bukan tugas mudah + masaalah ekonomi.

6. Tapi saya percaya, walaupun beliau dikaitkan dengan banyak skandal kalau dia berjaya selesaikan masalah ini - rakyat bole terima. Kene juga jaga partner dia - orang dok perhati. Ini semua punca-punca...orang start benci...

7. Tapi si Pak lah tak paham sampai sekarang...nasi dah jadi bubur...tak bole baiki...

8. Masih tak paham kenapa Pak Lah tak paham.....

to TUN and all readers,

hi, good day...thanks TUN for this sharing...i thinks this is not the 1st time TUN raised up the same issue,which Malaysia need a strong leader and strong 'power sharing' based component party...i strong believe that at this moment, Malaysia still need the sharing of power among different races because i agree with TUN that we are still not yet cross the border of race...but, for me, the ideal condition for Malaysia is to become a true nation which we are talking about cross races border condition in all aspect...this is the way we need to move to for a better Malaysia...

hope this sharing can open some of the readers mind...


By PowerRanger on September 22, 2008 4:15 PM
Dearest Tun & All Readers,

Pembentukan Pakatan Rakyat masih 'muda' lagi..... dan kerjasama antara PKR-PAS-DAP masih perlu diperkuatkan dan diperkukuhkan.

Walaupun ada ketidaksamaan dari segi pandangan, tapi masih boleh diselesaikan melalui "RUNDINGAN".

Tapi... dalam BN.... hanya UMNO saja yang menentukan keputusan!!!

Kalau PEMIMPIN itu berwibawa, masih boleh diterima lagi... Tapi... jika PEMIMPIN yang lemah berkuasa... HABIS SEMUA...

Salam Ramadan To Tun & All Dear Bloggers,

All the current leaders of BN must realise that time and conditions have changed. They MUST wake up, sit straight, clear their mindsets and be ready to revamp and rejuvenate in every sense of the word in order to be relevant with the current requirements. Otherwise, the Pakatan Rakyat will seize every little opportunities available, driving the sleeping BNs deeper into their slumber.

Malaysia Boleh !!!

Salam Kenyalang.

Dear Tun,

I think u should stop commenting and raised up the racial issues again .. i hope u can help pak lah and not asking him to go down .. since u elect him to be the next PM is ur duty as guru to teach him and not removed him. Guide him

In future, i hope to see more ideas on improving economy from your blog sir as u expert in this

Take care ..

By WHY BEE BANGI on September 22, 2008 4:19 PM
Salam Tun,

The pattern is similar, after the 1969 election others took the opportunity to attack UMNO even though they were once in the same team. They went back to their races for support despite helping the Government which is now headed by an incompetent leader to implement the same policies.

I believe we need to allow the opposition to govern if that's the people's choice, and BN especially UMNO should be the checker.

"The opposition will fail" is only a theory. We do not know it until we give it a try. As I have said earlier, if UMNO is truely the people's party then it should be able to be a good opposition. Only then we can claim that BN is still the best!

Melihat kepincangan yang berlaku terhadap Malaysia baik dari segi politik dan ekonomi yang kian putus menggambarkan kedudukan sebenar kelemahan pemerintah yang mewakili rakyat.

Ramai yang tidak terkejut, apabila Fukuda,PM negara maju Jepun meletakkan jawatan atas tekanan pembangkang dan mengakui tidak punya karisma bagi mengawal keadaan ekonomi negara yang kian meleset. Karisma dan kredibiliti adalah sesuatu yang tidak boleh dijual beli kerana ia datang secara lahiriah.

Kemampuan mengawal segala yang berada dalam linkungan adalah kurniaan, kerana hanya mereka yang hebat dapat memberi impak kepada persekitarannya dan bukan persekitaran yang mengawal dirinya.

Di Malaysia sesuatu yang berlaku adalah berlainan, walaupun banyak tekanan, terdapat suara dari akar umbi, desakan mahukan perubahan, proses menyalahkan sesama sendiri berlaku, dan kejutan demi kejutan berlaku dalam pola politik dan ekonomi negara, pihak pemerintah masih tidak sedarkan diri.

Tidak banyak perubahan dilaksanakan. Pemerintah masih yakin dengan kemenangan majoriti mudah hasil dari PRU lepas. Rakyat pula terus dihidang dengan ketidaktentuan politik dan ekonomi yang berlaku hampir setiap hari. Sistem sosial pula terhakis sedikit demi sedikit.

Mengapa Malaysia yang satu ketika dahulu diakui politik, ekonomi dan sosial kekuatannya kini menampakkan jurang kelemahan ketara?

Mengapa Malaysia yang punya pemerintah atau cerdik pandai berbilang bangsa berjaya membawa kesejahteraan lebih setengah abad, kini senyap takut menyatakan kebenaran sedang rakyat menuntut perubahan di peringkat tertinggi negara?

Setelah rakyat menyatakan protes mereka pada PRU lepas, mengapa pemerintah peringkat tertinggi takut melakukan perubahan demi MALAYSIA.

Melepaskan jawatan bukan bererti kalah, tetapi rasa tanggungjawab supaya MALAYSIA negara kita dapat terus memacu pembangunan demi kesejahteraan rakyat.

Rakyat dan pemerintah, kita semua adalah RAKYAT MALAYSIA.

Kita semua sayangkan MALAYSIA.

Berani melakukan PERUBAHAN bukan satu liabiliti tapi menunjukkan rasa sayang kita kepada MALAYSIA untuk melihat MALAYSIA yang lebih maju, aman dan damai untuk hari ini dan masa depan.

Salam TUN
1.Saya berpendapat agar Tun menyegerakan kemasukan semula kedalam UMNO.
2.Dengan yang demikian usaha TUN untuk menyelamtkan Umno,BN dan negara akan lebih berkesan.
3.Selagi TUN diluar, pandangan dan kritikan TUN terhadap kerajaan dan pemimpin tertinggi nya hanya dianggap remeh.
4.Keadaan ini juga agak kurang berkesan untuk memperbaiki dan merawat ahli2 yang telah kecewa atau yang dah tidak lagi menyokong parti.
5.Saya yakin masih ramai ahli dan pemimpin di akar umbi yang masih setia dengan TUN. December ini ada lah waktu yang terbaik untuk bertindak memperbetulkan keadaan.
6.Kepimpinan AAB mesti di akhiri segera sebelum rakyat hilang berminat lagi pada umno dan BN. Dan rakyat melihat parti ini tidak lagi relevan. 7.Perlu di ingatkan sebahgian besar rakyat adalah sebagai peminat parti sahaja, bukan ahli parti yang sentiasa setia dan tunduk pada ketua. Cita rasa ini boleh berubah2
8.2010 adalah satu jangka waktu yang lama untuk peralihan kuasa. Dan berapa banyak lagi kesilapan demi kesilapan dan kerosakan akan dilakukan AAB.
9.Kegagalan DSAAI pada 169 tidak bolih dipandang rengan dan berasa selesa. Hanya pelanduk sahaja lupakan jerat. Perangkap tidak akan lupakan mangsanya.
10.DSAAI akan sentiasa mengintai peluang dan mencari kelemahan kerajaan untuk memerangkap.
11.TUN telahpun melihat dan meramalkan apa akan terjadi pada negara bilamana DSAAI berkuasa.
12.Apabila PKR berkuasa bukan lah satu perkara mudah pulak untuk menumbangkan semula.
13.Sudah tentu DSSAI akan gunakan segala kuasa yang dia ada untuk mempertahan dan menghalalkan kedudukan nya. Mungkin 50 tahun kemudian baru lah UMNO dan BN bolih menang kembali. Wallahwaalam.

By zj on September 22, 2008 4:28 PM

Selamat jalan BN, parti yg pentingkan utk dapat projek dan kekayaan orang politik tertentu sahaja. Tak nampak lagi perjuangan seperti UMNO dahulu yg pentingkan keikhlasan dalam perjuangan. Hari ini, pemimpin hanya pentingkan untuk kumpul harta dan dapat saham2 dgn mudah. Kami orang kampung berdepan dengan kos hidup yang tinggi, bukan nak kaya tapi nak makan pun susah. Nak isi minyak motor pun perit, kata minyak nak turun dan kaji setiap bulan bila harga minyak global turun, hapak pun tarak.

Selagi tak ada keikhlasan dalam kepimpinan, selagi itulah BN akan terus tersungkor, macam graf BSKL pulak. Sedih dgn keadaan yg berlaku dan takut dengan kepimpinan yg ada untuk menghadapi ekonomi yg kian meruncing.

Orang Kampung.

By Manjalara on September 22, 2008 4:29 PM
Sir, Even though you have taken racial line lately which caused uneasiness among the non malay (me included),you are still the most capable PM Malaysia have got so far. I agree with you that BN concept of running the country (minus the UMNO ber maharajalela culture )is still the best platform to bring the nation forward.But by the events that is unfolding lately,I doubt the BN will survive beyond the next general election.One of the way to rescue it is YOU going back to UMNO ,wrest back the presiden post and become our PM for another term,kick out the whole existing cabinet(Nasri,Hisham,Khairi,Tyson and Syed Hamid a must go AND must not repeat the mistake of appointing KHIR TOYO again) and replaced them
with new faces which are more higher educated,proffessional,capable,corrupt free background.This way the rakyat will see a big revamp with all the black sheeps that have contributed significantly to the down fall of BN.Try imagine Najib becomes the PM by succesion and the black sheeps are still around,do you think it will be any difference from the rakyat's perception on the BN of its arrogance,corruptions,ignorance,stupidity etc etc ???
Other than this way,dont think any other strategy will work faster and more effective to wrest back the support from the PEOPLE.

Assalamualaikum Ayahnda Tun n Bonda,
With permission from Tun,

It's very ideal to say that PAS can manage this country well just because of its so-called Islamic policy. Preaching is NOT practising. If you see from outside, everything looks so wonderful but the lust for power n status has also creeped into PAS n some groups within the party have been backstabbing each other. The new n young idealists in the party do not very much agree with the fundamentalists. Some young members adapt, adopt n embrace friendships with DAP n PKR although their basic principles are so wide apart...the fundamentalists in the party will hv to accept the change bcoz thay realize they are not going to be there long...what much can they do??? at times their premier leader in Kelantan has to accept the youths' revolutionary ideas in certain issues regarding their own welfare n relationships with other parties in their coalition...that's why sometimes we could see tok guru would say something today but the next day changed his words...

Still, BN is our hope to lead this country as the component parties share some same principles - to see that we stay unite for the better of our country. The members of BN must not let their personal views or minor interests harm the healthy relashionships that hv been long built.

Have a nice day, best regards...

Salam Tun,

The pattern is similar, after the 1969 election others took the opportunity to attack UMNO even though they were once in the same team. They went back to their races for support despite helping the Government which is now headed by an incompetent leader to implement the same policies.

I believe we need to allow the opposition to govern if that's the people's choice, and BN especially UMNO should be the checker.

"The opposition will fail" is only a theory. We do not know it until we give it a try. As I have said earlier, if UMNO is truely the people's party then it should be able to be a good opposition. Only then we can claim that BN is still the best!

Melihat kepincangan yang berlaku terhadap Malaysia baik dari segi politik dan ekonomi yang kian putus menggambarkan kedudukan sebenar kelemahan pemerintah yang mewakili rakyat.

Ramai yang tidak terkejut, apabila Fukuda,PM negara maju Jepun meletakkan jawatan atas tekanan pembangkang dan mengakui tidak punya karisma bagi mengawal keadaan ekonomi negara yang kian meleset. Karisma dan kredibiliti adalah sesuatu yang tidak boleh dijual beli kerana ia datang secara lahiriah.

Kemampuan mengawal segala yang berada dalam linkungan adalah kurniaan, kerana hanya mereka yang hebat dapat memberi impak kepada persekitarannya dan bukan persekitaran yang mengawal dirinya.

Di Malaysia sesuatu yang berlaku adalah berlainan, walaupun banyak tekanan, terdapat suara dari akar umbi, desakan mahukan perubahan, proses menyalahkan sesama sendiri berlaku, dan kejutan demi kejutan berlaku dalam pola politik dan ekonomi negara, pihak pemerintah masih tidak sedarkan diri.

Tidak banyak perubahan dilaksanakan. Pemerintah masih yakin dengan kemenangan majoriti mudah hasil dari PRU lepas. Rakyat pula terus dihidang dengan ketidaktentuan politik dan ekonomi yang berlaku hampir setiap hari. Sistem sosial pula terhakis sedikit demi sedikit.

Setelah rakyat menyatakan protes mereka pada PRU lepas, mengapa pemerintah peringkat tertinggi takut melakukan perubahan demi MALAYSIA.

Melepaskan jawatan bukan bererti kalah, tetapi rasa tanggungjawab supaya MALAYSIA negara kita dapat terus memacu pembangunan demi kesejahteraan rakyat.

Mengapa Malaysia yang satu ketika dahulu diakui politik, ekonomi dan sosial kekuatannya kini menampakkan jurang kelemahan ketara?

Mengapa Malaysia yang punya pemerintah atau cerdik pandai berbilang bangsa yang berjaya membawa kesejahteraan lebih setengah abad, kini senyap takut menyatakan kebenaran sedang rakyat menuntut perubahan di peringkat tertinggi negara?

Rakyat dan pemerintah, kita semua adalah RAKYAT MALAYSIA.

Kita semua sayangkan MALAYSIA.

Berani melakukan PERUBAHAN bukan satu liabiliti tapi menunjukkan rasa sayang kita kepada MALAYSIA untuk melihat MALAYSIA yang lebih maju, aman dan damai untuk hari ini dan masa depan.

salam Tun,

Your political comeback is very much needed.

One last great effort is required to pull this country together through this troubled times.

Time is not on our / your side.

You are the only one who can pull this off as you have the charisma and clout to save this country and put it back on the right track!

UMNO leaders must wake up and assess the situation.Every UMNO member is morally required to support Tun's comeback if you sincerely love your agama,bangsa dan negara.

Please do not continue to live in dreamland with DSAAB.

The 3F crisis (fuel,food and financial) is staring us in the face and yet we are happily declaring the situation is OK.

UMNO must change it's approach and mindset to ensure it's survival.

DSAI & PR think they can rule better,but hey,America's economy is crumbling!They got loads of their own problems to attend to first.

DSAI wants so much to take power that he is making all kinds of conflicting promises to everybody.What will happen if he renege on his promises?

Can DAP and PAS agree on a Malaysian Malaysia or the creation of an Islamic State?


They all are just putting their respective agendas on hold just to try and take power first.

The best alternative is still the BN.

It just need a strong captain to take command up to the next GE at least.

And that captain is Tun.



By shearir on September 22, 2008 4:35 PM
Tun dearest,

Sad... But it is true.

the country is going into all sorts of turmoil: politically, economically, morally, racially and ethically.

true: Everybody knows and believes that the reason of these turmoil is due to the WEAKness of the "Leadership".

Sad again, nobody have the balls to challenge the "Leadership"

By azfarhan on September 22, 2008 4:35 PM
I vote for BN

By Ksin23 on September 22, 2008 4:37 PM
Dear Tun:

Just a simple question. Who do you see is the best candidate to step up as PM (beside Datuk Najib) and why do you think so? With the current situation & scandal that involve a lots of the menteri, it seems that BN is lacking of Charismatic Leader as we have experienced when you are in helm.

By NM on September 22, 2008 4:40 PM
yup, it the the ideal coalition in multi racial country~
la la la la..

By emville on September 22, 2008 4:41 PM
Saya setuju dgn Tun. BN masih relevan. Dan hanya BN yg telah memakmurkan Malaysia. Bukannya parti2 pembangkang sekarang. Bukannya senang nak satukan parti2 yg mempunyai pelbagai bangsa dan agama.

Drp ini lah pemimpin2 BN sekarang kena kuatkan BN. Bersatu demi BN. Struktur balik BN supaya ianya dpt mengembalikan kegemilangan Malaysia. Buang mana2 pemimpin yg menjadi liability parti, tak kira samada ianya paling atas ataupun sebaliknya. Tapi setakat yg kita tahu, pemimpin numero uno la yg kena cantas dulu. Baru yg lain tu akan berubah!

Hidup BN, hidup Tun M!

By Mozafar on September 22, 2008 4:42 PM
Salam Tun.

Ya, very poor and incompetent indeed yet the UMNO MT still support that very poor and incompetent leader. It seems they are very reluctant to let go and dump this man. I wonder what inspired them to continuously blind support this man. Undeniably money & power is behind all these.

In my opinion UMNO constitution should be reviewed and upgraded so that any lousy or weak President or Ketua Bahagian should be dumb immediately by MT and not wait till he destroyed the party what more the nation. We encounter this problem because we have a person lacking in integrity, less credible and stubborn as president.

UMNO should form advisory councils to monitor the performance of the President and recommend actions to be taken in case he is sleeping on his job just like we have now.

By daud@m on September 22, 2008 4:43 PM
BN tidak mempunyai cukup pemimpin yang berani.
Kecuali Yang Berhormat Ku Li, Muyyidin dan Mukhriz.

Akibatnya mereka tak dapat nak berkampen untuk membuang Pak Lah yang tak syak lagi menjadi punca segala masalah negara.

Hampir kesemua ahli BN yang penakut ini hanya cakap di belakang.

Jelaslah yang BN masih tak dapat dipulihkan lagi buat masa ini, memandangkan punca masalah (Pak Lah) belum dapat dibuang.

Kita kena tunggu sampai ahli BN berani membuang Pak Lah barulah boleh.

For what is a man, what has he got, if not himself , if he has not, to say the thing he truly feels !!!

Assalamualaikum Tun,

1. Semua orang yang komen dalam blog ini menyatakan sokongan mereka pada Tun, pandangan Tun dan segala tindak-tanduk Tun.

2.Tapi apa yang kita semua buat untuk menyokong Tun?

3. Kita menghantar pelbagai komen yang panjangnya berjela-jela. Tapi apakah kesan komen kita yang panjang mengutuk DSAAB ini memberi kesan dan akan mengubah pekara yang kita tentang, menjatuhkan pemerintahan beliau, mengembalikan semula keamanan dalam UMNO dan Malaysia?

4. Jawapannya TIDAK!

5. Orang UMNO di akar umbi harus dan JANGAN mencalonkan DSAAB pada perhimpunan Agung kali ini. Kita tidak perlu takut jika digantung dari UMNO. Kita tidak rugi apa-apa.
(Kecuali sesetengah yang mendapat kepentingan peribadi melalui UMNO)

6. Ini kuasa kita sebagai mana kita dapat lihat kuasa pengundi yang menghancurkan majoriti 2/3 BN.

7. Kita undi Tengku Razaleigh, kita undi siapa yang Tun rasakan layak menggantikan DSAAB, dan siapa yang harus ada dalam MT UMNO kali ini.(Minta Tun senaraikan)

9. Ini sahaja cara mempercepatkan pemindahan kuasa dalam UMNO dan BN sebelum 2010.

10. Saya amat berharap Tun akan menyertai semula UMNO dan mejadi perwakilan UMNO kali ini. Saya akan menjadi ahli UMNO di kawasan Tun walau jauh di utara atau terceruk di selatan dan undi Tun.

11. Dan yang terakhir orang Melayu harus bersatu mengukuhkan ekonomi Melayu. Dengan cara ini sahaja kita dapat menjaga kedaulatan kita.

Salam saya buat Tun sekeluarga.
Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri dan Maaf Zahir Batin.

By Hajar on September 22, 2008 4:44 PM
Salam Yg DiKasihi Tun,

1. Amat setuju dengan pandangan Tun. BN masih relevan. PR bukan alternatif yang baik. Sekarang pun sudah nampak belang mereka – BELUM LAGI BERKUASA. Semoga komponen2 parti BN ”buang yang keruh, ambil yang jernih”.

2. Yang sudah TIDAK RELEVAN IALAH DSAAB. Semoga DSAAB terbuka hati untuk meletak jawatan dengan kadar segera. Agak kesian melihat DSAAB yang seakan tidak sedar yang beliau memang TIADA KEMAMPUAN untuk memimpin Malaysia. Beliau sudah menjadi BEBANAN kepada BN dan UMNO.

Semoga Tun sekeluarga dirahmati Allah SWT. Saya sokong Tun.

By renaj on September 22, 2008 4:47 PM
Selamat sejahtera buat Tun dan juga keluarga Tun yang setia kepada negara dan bangsa, Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadan dan Selamat Menyambut Hari Raya Puasa :)

Bertitik tolak dengan isu semasa yang sering diwar-warkan oleh semua orang yang nampaknya masing-masing ingin menjadi hero kepada penyelamat negara dan rakyat tetapi hakikatnya hanya semata-mata ingin menaikkan imej masing-masing di kalangan pengundi.

Semua ingin memberi kata-kata mudah kenapa ianya berlaku dan kenapa ianya perlu dilakukan tetapi tiada siapa yang memikirkan kesan sekiranya ianya dilakukan. Asalkan ianya mencerminkan budaya pentadbiran yang telus dan terbuka, semua orang kata "OK" atau mesti boleh dibawa berbincang.



Note: Tun sepatutnya menjadi penasihat parti dan kerajaan kerana Tun ialah mentor kepada kepimpinan yang sebenarnya.

Hidup Tun Mahathir................................

By Chris on September 22, 2008 4:50 PM
I had agreed earlier on of the viability of BN concept of governing by consensus. After all, they did very well since the time of Alliance until before DSAAB stepped in. The thing is, if they are to do what you have suggested, then they must change the present leaders. Samy Vellu has been asking for the BN to meet up more for discussions on what they can do to regain the peoples confidence. I think he does not have the vision and foresight that you possess. He is only interested to regain power for his own selfish purposes. I cannot speak in defense or against the other components parties as I am an Indian. But I'm sure they are more or less the same. So, if these are the leaders who come together to repair BN, then I'm sorry I will never vote BN in future elections. I do not trust them any longer. I would like to see a complete change in leadership starting from the main leader of BN who happens to be the worst leader unleashed on our country. I guess you know who that is.
Sir, one point that has been bothering me for a long time is how come you had no inkling of Abdullah's incompetence when you picked him for PM after you retired? Didn't you study his abilities or put him through some sort of test to gauge the outcome? I cannot help feeling that maybe you chose him simply so that the so-called RAHMAN theory would be completed nicely. Since Anwar was jailed out of the picture, there was nobody with the initial A but Abdullah and to be followed by N, Najib. Was this the case, sir?

By Mob Rules on September 22, 2008 4:50 PM
Dearest Tun,

This is the best description from you on the current situation which connected all the dots.

They are so concerted at getting at each others' throats until they are so blind of the current worsening economic conditions.

If PM is still at the top seat after the coming UMNO elections, its goodbye Malaysia.

By Calma on September 22, 2008 4:50 PM
Assalamu'alaikum Tun,

Saya sokong pendapat Tun, tetapi walau pemimpin BN duduk semeja setiap hari berbincang tetapi mereka tidak berani bersuara tentang kepincangan yang ada kerana takut hilang "TITLE" masaalah dalaman BN tidak akan selesai, tunding menunding tidak akan berhenti.

Pemimpin BN kena ubah style dengan berani menegur apa yang salah denagn cara BOSS mereka bukan hanya jadi PAK TURUT mengiyakan semua perkara walaupun lubuk hati mereka mengatakan perkara itu tidak betul.

Saya rasa mereka perlu menerima teguran dari orang lain dengan hati terbuka.

Orang Melayu perlu bersatu kerana dengan itu sahaja Melayu boleh menjadi bangsa yang perkasa (ambil dan timbang pendapat dari pemimpin lama kerana pengalaman mengatasi segalanya).

Masaalahnya seperti Tun pernah kata:


InsyaAllah BN akan kembali menjadi perkasa.

By Shariff_5 on September 22, 2008 4:53 PM
Dear Tun,

1. I think you need to SHUT UP now...

2. In your age, you should not worry about BN, UMNO, Pak Lah, Najib, joining UMNO or any other things un-related to religin anymore..

3. Have you ever think about how are you going to meet Allah?

4. C'mon Tun...this is not the time for you anymore... why die while hated... be smart, be wise....

By ISTERI ANTIMAMAK on September 22, 2008 4:53 PM


Apa yang TUN perkatakan amat jelas sekali kebenarannya.

Seperti juga Amerika yang pakar ekonomi gagal mentadbir ekonomi negaranya dengan baik...!!! Ini kesilapan yang harus mereka akui pada Dunia. Sebaliknya mereka menunding jari antara satu sama lain apabila kesilapan terjadi.

Begitu juga dengan BN, perlu ada satu badan yang memantau akan kebersanan BN pada rakyat. KEPENTINGAN RAKYAT PERLU DIJAGA DAN UTAMAKAN....Jangan Lupa Ini..!!!!

Disini Pemimpin yang ada terutama DS Najib harus bekerja keras dalam menaikan ekonomi negara paling tidak mempertahankan ke tahap yang stabil. Dunia kini sedang mengalai krisis yang juga sangat emmbimbangkan.

DS Najib harus bertindak tegas dalam mempertahankan ekonomi negara dari masuk ke kancah yang memusnahkan.

Baca di:



Selamat Berpuasa.

Isteri antimamak
