Well, it is truly refreshing to note that the Prime Minister actually took time to wish elder statesman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on his 89th birthday yesterday - July 10, 2014.
Such public gesture from the PM, for a man whose immense contributions to this nation and her people cannot be denied even by his worst political enemies, is indeed heartening.
Remember, you still need Dr M to stand up against those who are perceived to be the untouchables. This was yet again proven very recently after leaders who were supposed to protect the interest of the rakyat opted to switch into the silent mode.
I'm sure Dr M would appreciate Najib's well wishes but I think the grand old man would be a much happier Malaysian if the Government of the day stopped pandering to new politics (whatever that means), liberalism and the idea of embracing unbridled freedom and democracy. That, and a no nonsense leadership from your team Mr PM would be the best birthday gift to the man who practically put Malaysia on the minds of global citizens.
Thank you Mr Prime Minister.
p/s We pray Dr M kekal bertenaga untuk menegur demi kebaikan kita semua.
