COMMENT | Eighteen months ago, I asked some friends if they thought it would be possible to get rid of Umno-Baru/BN. They said, "No! Not in my lifetime."

Then, the impossible happened.

Now, they act like spoilt brats and demand instant reforms!

Today, when I ask them, "How about a non-Malay Prime Minister?", they roll their eyeballs and say, "No! Not in my lifetime."

Why not an answer like, "Yes. Why not?"

Have they already forgotten about GE-14?

Do you recall Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad's book, "The Malay Dilemma"? It is not an easy read, but in truth, Mahathir creates as many dilemmas for Malaysians as he postulated in his book...
