COMMENT | I am back from a few months of slumber and hiatus. Perhaps the nausea of the state of Malaysian politics made me take a break. But I see writing as a calling and a commitment to continue to think passionately about what is best for our country.

I am back in the swing of things. I was also completing my latest book on neo-Mahathirism, on Pakatan Harapan and its promises. Then I read about yet another manufactured crisis, an unfounded fear.

What is this smokescreen about Chin Peng’s (photo) ashes? I asked as I read yet another distraction for the rakyat; at the time of the fierce internal struggle within Harapan, on the question of a “peaceful transition of power”.
