Read The Mole´s exclusive Dr M: Malay Rulers should not be involved in business deals
No stopping this Statesman now. Dr Mahathir Mohamad is going after some of the people who live in our Royal households and the latest salvo is aimed directly at those who have been dabbling in lucrative bussiness projects. You may call him a senile old man or accuse him of suffering from pensioner´s syndrome but he ain´t keeping his mouth shut and we have all got to deal with that.
The former PM´s stand on the Royalty is well known and documented. It´s not that he doesn´t love members of our Royalty; it is just that the Tun doesn´t like the fact that some of these members of the Royalty continue to take advantage of their positions while allowing themselvs to be taken advantage of.
We should be hearing more from the Statesman (since we don´t see anyone else berani enough to speak out on the issue). I don.t expect the Rulers - at least some of them - to remain quiet. Billlions are at stake here.
