  • These kind of statements coming from a dead man walking does not remember that he insisted on the anti-fake news law to clamp down on dissenters voices. He is just buying himself some time b4 he is behind bars.

  • Just for a thought to consider. How does Najib feel now that he is powerless and will be facing imprisonment for all his crimes. All his yes men whom he has given something during his tenure are now asking him to get lost!!!. I am just wondering that if he is really regretting in trusting and believing what those guys that are leading him on with falsehood and lies but now are cold and dropped him like a ton of bricks when the going gets tough. It is a know fact that even within a triads or criminal of banditos the loyalty are expected eventho' there will be a few traitors and betrayer but still the camaraderies are given. The actions of the Umno leaders towards their ex captain speaks volume about the Umno party set up. They are just warlords without principle and integrity and behaving like pedestrian who have only self serving nature and will be quick to discard or sell off even their family members just to serve themselves well. Looking back when the old fox offered Najib his exits and if he had taken, he will now be enjoying the good life never ever he could dream of BUT he was led to think by all his false friends and sycophants that he is invinsible. God is fair !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
