Not Pretty : Tun Dr M Vs Najib

The heat is getting more intense now. The knives are out. All this in the wake of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's relentless attack on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak not only to answer those nagging questions surrounding1MDB (where has the money gone?) and so on but for Najib to step down as PM.

It seems to Dr Mahathir, Najib has no choice but to do so because he has failed the rakyat. He has failed to perform as PM.

Dr Mahathir has also resurrected the ghost of murdered Mongolian Altantuya Shaaribuu by urging Najib to reopen the case following a declaration by her murderer Sirul Azhar that he and his partner-in-crime Azilah Hadri were instructed by someone to kill her.

Sirul, inexplicably escaped to Australia where he now is. So, Sirul -- just tell us who instructed you, will you? For crying out loud!

So, really. All's not pretty about the whole thing. If you are not depressed about the whole thing and about where is taking the country and how it's going to end, you can switch on your sense of humour and laugh out loud. Only that is not funny.

You have those questions and you have Najib's response that it is all being investigated by the Auditor-General, an external auditor and the Public Accounts Committee.

So, we'll just have to wait.

But Dr M has no confidence in them -- he wants a totally independent body to investigate 1MDB.

This is all so hot that on social media - Facebook, twitter and the blogs - people are having a field day. Dr Mahathir has his ardent and loyal followers and so has the Prime Minister. In fact, Umno Youth only the other demonstrated their open support.

One person I feel so bad for is Datuk Mukhriz - Kedah MB and Dr Mahathir's son. Talking of knives -- those pesky politicians are now turning their knives and guns on him.

Support the party president or step down as Kedah MB. they yell. Talk about fishing in muddy waters and seeing opportunity in calamity.

But we worry where and how this will all end.

Not pretty at all right now.

And then there is that ubiquitous Jho Low. For heaven's sake -- Was he or was he not involved?

Hey. Don't look at me. I have no freakin'  idea..

I just want a happy ending.
