Friends, Malaysians, countrymen
Lend me your money…
The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.
- Adaptation from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
COMMENT | So, what can anyone with a ringside view of the big #Lawan and tumultuous events that have happened since Muhyiddin Yassin suffered a TKO (total knockout) and resigned as prime minister take away as they leave the fight stadium and ponder the outcome in their sitting rooms and with their handhelds?
Although we have a new prime minister, clearly the centre of power is still in the Perikatan Nasional/Umno/Bersatu camp.
Followers of the big fight concerned about the racial ripple effects of the bruising battle can be consoled or dismayed by the fact that Malay dominance of Malaysia’s political system continues. Despite all the hype, this dominance was never really challenged.
It was also never the prize, and it may in fact be reinforced by this encounter as well as in the coming fights...
