5) The smartest person here who did not attend appears to be long-time Mahathir supporter Tun Daim who refuses to appear in public with this bunch of frustrated leaders since he knows that Tun M can no longer defend him from harm. Tun Daim is smart enough to stay away and not put his rumoured billions of ringgit wealth in jeopardy.
In the beginning, just as Dr Mahathir Mohamad was launching his all-out attack on Prime Minister Najib Razak, former Finance Minister and one of the richest men in this country, Daim Zainuddin, was featured prominently in the equation, not by himself but by some of the pro-Tun bloggers. Photographs of Daim having power breakfast were proudly published in these blogs, giving the impression, intended or otherwise, that Dr M and Daim were a tag team. Well, maybe they still are; the two have gone back a long, long time, in party and government; both are from Kedah and even their villages are close to each other. They have parted ways in the past, even tried to kill each other politically, but they've never burnt their bridges.
The fact remains that Daim was sorely missing from yesterday's picture-perfect Press conference to gang up against Najib and his Administration.
Thank you, Seademon aka Capt Rahmat, for pointing it out - the bit about Daim missing, I mean. I don't necessarily agree with the first four points in your Historia de los Cojones, though.
And I certainly disagree with the use of doctored pictures without cautioning the readers that they are doctored pictures because SOME Malaysians are bound to believe that they are real!
A picture form Seademon's latest, for a shining example:

Still on the subject of yesterday's Press conference, I can safely say that it is clear now that in the unlikely event that Najib steps down or is sacked or gets arrested by the CIA, MI5 or Mossad for stealing 1MDBs' money or accepting a donation from Israel's enemies, the next Prime Minister will not be Zahid Hamidi but someone from this photograph.
Will it be Ku Li-Muhyiddin (Ku Li as PM and Abang Din as DPM).
Or could it be Muhyiddin as PM and Shafie Afdal as Deputy Prime Minister?
Can't be Dr M-Ku Li.
Or could it?
