Former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed said something truly funny today. He said that Malaysians need to stop putting a price on their votes if they hope to see any progress in tackling corruption in the country.
Everyone heard of the pot calling the kettle black but coming from him, this is in a league of it's own.
Now the man is right. By all accounts, corruption is getting worse in Malaysia but Dr Mahathir is about the last man in Malaysia that has a right to complain about it. Okay maybe the Chief Minister of Sarawak may have something to say about that, but if not no. 1 then Dr. Mahathir is no. 2!
The man served as Malaysian Prime Minister for 22 years until his retirement in 2003, and in all that he did nothing about it. Hell, you can even say corruption served him well! Now he is retired and suddenly corruption is a problem in Malaysia?
Dr Mahathir; what you said was so funny, it was almost sad.
