I was born on the prairies, where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures. [GERONIMO]
Geronimo,Khalid was never a politician.Even as MB,he had the power and state resources to consolidate his position against his enemies.But he never did,except maybe to Azmin and a few cronies in PKNS.Khalid according to his critics or enemies is supposed to "pengsan"(crack) under sustained pressure.They under estimated his resolve.Why Khalid has characteristics of a mule.He felt betrayed and is hurt by this betrayal by Anwar.Khalid was one of a few prominent people to visit Anwar while he was wearing orange jumpsuits or striped pajamas.The rest avoided him like the plague,frightened of incurring the wrath of the doctor.Khalid was also there for his family,that is the reason he had the support of Azizah and Nurul.But in the end Azizah had to chose either hubby or Khalid and switched camps.Nurul has been quite and have avoided this Kajang circus like the plague.I do not think that she has the stomach to attack Khalid personally as she also sense betrayal by you know who.Maybe Khalid would have accepted Nurul as his replacement.As usual the man who can never be PM or MB has flunked big time again,and has taken Umno's gutter politics to a new level.
Bruno. I certainly agree with you about his 'never a politician' stance. In fact, I have attended some of his ceramahs for the last two GEs and I noticed he would talk more about his corporate experience, especially managing the huge estates in Indonesia. He had never explained policy matters nor his vision for the state. True to form, once he assumed the MB post, people are beginning to complain about him running the ship like a corporate captain rather than a visionary politician. Like they said, politics is never for the faint hearted.
Geronimo,many of Khalid's enemies and critics are to young to remember or even knew that he was in London for the lighting strike takeover of Guthries.He must be a good strategist or at the minimum a tit better than Rafizi.
Actually I am troubled by that $60 Million debt ..... I never knew a CEO of so many great corporation can rake up so much debt and be at the mercy of the UMNO-BN Puppet Masters.....In the end I certainly don't want an MB who cannot manage his own personal Debt and trying to tell the world he done well for Selangor....Perhaps he was waiting for a nice pay day from the UMNO -ISIS-Boko Haram-BN supporters and then call it a day......but Allah ada Mata and his Greed and Pride bared for all to see.......One Time Marina Yussof had to quit and humble herself because her Food bowl was attacked relentlessly attacked by Tun Dr. M - ISIS God of UMNO!!...Money the Root of all Evil.....some get away with it ...some don't on Earth...but Allah Ada mata..... ABU.....whatever it takes
