So, the granddaughter of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad produces a
film about her long-in-the-tooth grandfather, and mixes it up with the
futile struggle of hopeful Malaysians in this long-suffering country.
her intentions are to be lauded, the ‘M’ in the story has now come to
stand for the manipulation and mischief-making the old man is once again
The appointments of his Bersatu gofers like the ‘black
shoe’ Education Minister Maszlee Malik, the ‘dinner host’ Youth and
Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, and the ‘yet to stir’
Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, to wreck the hopes and aspirations of
Pakatan Harapan voters are once again brought into sharp focus.
what does ‘M’ mean to you? It means more misery under Mahathir as he
continues to manipulate Malaysians with his khat, the Islamic preacher

that would win the hearts of the Malays. Now, Harapan is making the same
mistake as Umno did. Religion will not provide food on the table,
a reasonable-salaried job, better healthcare, education, or even a
cheap and comfortable roof over their heads.
If focus is given to
these issues, the people will realise who have taken care of their basic
needs in the long run. They will be grateful and support the party that
