Please retire before you pull more taunts and challenges against karma, Stephen Tan tells Dr Mahathir Mohamad in an open letter.

No more will I ever believe in Dr Mahathir. It’s La Paloma, from me, No More. You will be remembered by many Malaysians for the lackadaisical way you regarded the popular mandate of the general election on 9 May 2018.

Your betrayal and your insincerity is way too extreme and far too rich for me. You do not have a sense of gratitude. Imagine, PKR, the DAP and Amanah reposed their trust in you and you sold all of them out. Your ingratitude is unacceptable. Your contempt for the Other can be elevated into either a metaphor or a proverb.

Anwar, then in jail, accepted you as the PM-in-waiting, and accepted you as the PM after the 2018 general election.

Having sat as the PM for nearly two years, you turned around and said you never liked Anwar.

In many ways, you also rode to victory on the back of the DAP. And you now say you do not like the DAP after such a magnificent comeback when even your former political secretary, Matthias Chang, sold the tune that you had changed. How did you treat Matthias Chang after the victory? You threw him under the bus, you ingrate!

You may have thought at 94, 95 and 96, no karma can ever overtake you. Think of your children and grandchildren, Dr M. Are they exempt?

Despite the aforesaid, I wish you and your descendants well. Please retire before you pull more taunts and challenges against karma, Dr M.

Just retire. You have had more than your fair share of the political spoils while in office in this land of Mahsuri’s curse for more than 24 years!

I fully support the view of the writer. The old man should be left alone and ignored. He doesn’t deserve any attention. The three PH parties should learn from their mistakes, further strengthen their unity, forge deep understanding among their leaders, restrategise and get ready for the next election. Let not history repeat itself.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
