Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has indeed discarded his old clothes. He has rid himself of the sycophants and now surrounds himself with righteous people who will support him in rebuilding the nation and correct him if he is moving in the wrong direction. He now listens to the rakyat. This was clearly seen in his willingness to forego the position of Education Minister to keep the promise given to the people. The Mahathir of old would not have done that. If Mahathir was a dictator in the past, it was because the people who were around him allowed him to do so.
Ku Li, unfortunately, still chooses to surround himself with the flatterers and yes-men of Umno. He himself chose to ignore the obvious evidence in front of him and unabashedly supported father of all kleptocracy, hailing him as “a good and articulate administrator with the skills to take the country to greater heights” during the run-up to GE14. Ku Li should reflect on his own clothes and consider if they are worth keeping or not.
