Little birds tell me that the Prime Minister has washed his hands and distanced himself from the recent unwarranted mainstream i.e. TV3, Utusan and NST's attacks against Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tun Daim Zainuddin. They say a recent meeting in Davos and London attended by powerful strategists and lowly operators had decided that they must find a scapegoat, or rather a few scapegoats for the leader's political survival. Not sure if Najib himself had attended the meeting of conspirators. The blade, I heard, would fall on a few media bosses and at least one senior officer from Najib's office itself. The media bosses would be blamed for all the TV3/NST/Utusan attacks, including the lowly decision to use Anwar Ibrahim and other PKR politicians, against Tun Dr Mahathir and Tun Daim. Guess who becomes more powerful and gets away scot-free despite being the low class mastermind and a direct messenger between Najib and the media bosses? When the going gets dirty, we could safely expect more dirt to float.
On another note, it was learnt that both the Tuns had a brief meeting a few days ago and one of the Tun was told by the other that Najib had promised to get his boys to stop all media attacks and vouched that it was not his doing and that he was not in the know.
Serious housekeeping and changes too were promised to the Tun, in exchange of some breathing space.
I think the 'not his doing andnot being in the know' is just another bloody lie but let's give him the benefit of the doubt and watch closely if extra Oxygen could do wonders.
