  • YES! MY 1RESOUNDING YES TO TDM. I had waited for 'tis apocalypse-like moment ever since he quit dUMNO. To err is human as no man/woman is infallible. To admit mistakes w/ apology/apologies takes gargantuan courage and conviction for a hard-headed man who's larger than life in almost all senses of the phrase. The fact that it took him so long to come clean, be "liberated" from the overdue-cum-over-hyped besieged mentality and duly redeemed himself amongst his fellow brethren nationwide makes this aptly the single most important "political apology" since Merdeka.

    Based on the foregoing, I hereby also wanna avail 'tis opportune moment to withdraw my long-held moniker that dubbed him as Maha-Recalcitrant (Yang Paling Degil) with my sincerest apology too. Tun, I'm SORRY to have had been calling you w/ names. I stop now w/ immediate effect.

    MAY THE FORCE BE W/ YOU SIR...IN FORGING AHEAD & ACHIEVE THE ULTIMATE GOAL:
    GET RID OF THE UNPRECEDENTED MEGA-KLEPTOCRAT;
    THEN MAKE MALAYSIA BOLEH GREAT AGAIN.


    BEST WISHES & HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018
