The silence from his new found friends in the opposition is deafening as Tun Dr Mahathir had to face a barrage of attack and criticism for his past record.
Despite overwhelming presence of opposition in the social media, even the voice of PPBM President, Tan Sri Muhyiddin could not be heard. Though he may have been accused of stabbing his boss Dato Najib in the back, he remained a team player.
It is the media that is not picking up his overly cautious and calculated words. Mahathir is a bigger news item. His private grumbling over the poor return on political investment on the hundrerds of million spent could be heard.
Now that Mahathir was officially proposed as PH's proposed Prime Minister, it has attracted heavy criticism.
