What a really big U-Turn! Today the DAP parliamentarians are jostling to be cheek by jowl with Mahathir.
They’re harbouring (false) Hope that #PM7 will be able to return them to their plush Putrajaya offices. Still banking on a successful ‘No Confidence’ motion against Muhyiddin once the Dewan reconvenes, eh?
A dozen years ago, runners of the regime change movement to topple BN had refused even to be in the same room as Mahathir (who was BN chairman for 22 years). You could call it their self-imposed cordon sanitaire by those hating on Umno.
Fast forward to 2020 … and UBAH indeed. Now we see the DAP begging Mahathir to remain in power so that they can continue riding on his coattails.
Observe body contact precautions
In times of coronavirus, it is more politically-and-medically correct for all parties if the DAP’s posse of Mahathir-loving YBs kept their social distance and just blow air kisses to the old man.
But no. Instead the DAP parliamentarians fall over themselves crowding around Mahathir for a photo op so much so that he has had to self-quarantine after coming into close contact with them.
To preserve the good health of a vulnerable 95 year old, it is safer for Mahathir if his DAP toadies desist from assiduously kissing his feet and licking his toes.
