Dear Mahathir

The kleptocracy that this nation is now perceived to be, has been facilitated by the foundations that you laid during your 22 years in office.

And yet many of these same people, these friends and people I meet, urge me to consider these possibilities.

That you have come to realise the errors of your earlier ways.

That you wish to now, through the next general election, remove Najib, UMNO and BN from power and begin the process of undoing the damage that has been inflicted on this nation.

They ask that I consider these possibilities and, for the sake of the nation, place my faith in and give my fullest support to a Pakatan Harapan led by you.

I confess that, for the various reasons I have previously stated, I am struggling to come to terms with this.

What might have helped?

A simple “Yes, I made mistakes, now let me work with all of you to make things right” would have sufficed.

That’s not been forthcoming.

Instead, from time to time, you have alluded to dark periods in our national history and sought to explain them away.

The Salleh Abas sacking.

Ops Lalang.

The latest : Anwar’s sacking.

Do us all a favour, please, if you really want everyone to come round to working with Pakatan Harapan, led by you, come the 14th GE.

If you must embark on these piecemeal explanations of past travesties, be man enough to acknowledge responsibility for the same, rather than exonerating yourself by laying the blame on others.

If you cant, just zip it, please.
