Blogger Mahathir

He’s probably the world’s first ex-Prime Minister to become a blogger. This is his blog, which is maintained of course not by him, but someone who is good in this business. Apparently his blog has just reached one million hits! Credit to him, I don’t think there are many bloggers, if any, who can get so many hits in less than a month by just plain blogging (no fancy videos, no flesh flashing pictures etc). Looks like he’s still relevant in Malaysian politics after years of stepping down as a Prime Minister. And he definitely has his agenda behind all this blogging, to bring down the existing PM. Is it in all Malaysian’s best interest that he does this? I doubt it. Mahathir of late is not his usual self. A lot of things he has done in the past when he was Malaysia’s fourth PM has come back to haunt him. In much the same way as Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe who has done some great things when he came into power, remaining in power for too long has corrupted him. Both are now scared of being exposed and punished for what they have done wrong in the past, thus want to cling on to power for longer, albeit in different ways. For Mahathir’s case, he certainly wouldn’t want the opposition to get into power, as that means that Anwar will become PM, and he’s doomed, for what he has done to Anwar back in 1998, sending him to jail on grounds of sodomy.Malaysian politics is getting more and more interesting by the day. Follow it from here, it’s like a best-seller 🙂
