The Petronas advisor's post has traditionally been a retirement post for former PMs, that's true. But one can't help but wonder if this isn't Najib Razak rubbing salt to Dr Mahathir's injury, especially following the Tun's claim in his lawsuit that his removal as the Petronas advisor is example of what makes him a victim of "Najib's abuses".
Kuala Lumpur, 25 March;
In the end it isn't 1MDB's "vanished" RM42 billion or Altantuya's murder or her murderer's "unfair" death sentence or the "wasteful" BR1M scheme or the "suspicious" RM2.6 billion donation in Najib Razak's account that drove former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad to file a lawsuit against the Prime Minister, the subject of his ire for the last 18 months or so. It was his sacking as Petronas advisor that made him do something he never, ever did before.
If it wasn't clear before, now everyone can see: it has become personal.
