More analysis to come...but first...some prelude...from Malaysia-Today's Gerakan Anti-Najib:

According to talk on the ground, there is a movement called Gerakan Anti-Najib or GAN. The mission and vision of GAN is to see the ouster of Najib and a new Deputy Prime Minister installed in his place. According to one Chief Minister in his SMS to me a few days ago, Anwar Ibrahim has aligned himself to the Prime Minister’s son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin, and is part of the ‘team’ that will make its move on Najib. I replied, “Not possible,” and he responded, “You of all people should know Anwar better and if you say no, then it must be false.”

A day later, Anwar called for a press conference at his home in Bukit Damansara and urged the government to widen its investigation on the murder of the Mongolian model. Anwar also urged Najib to clear his name as the talk on the ground is that Najib is in someway involved in the murder. Wow! That took even me by surprise and considering that I am a most controversial personality it is very difficult to surprise me. Was this a mere coincidence? Just a day earlier a man very high up the Umno ladder told me of the alliance between Anwar and Khairy to oust Najib. Rumours are abundance in Malaysia and I have a hard time separating the husk from the rice. And this talk of an anti-Najib alliance between Anwar and Khairy is certainly husk rather than rice. But now I am not so sure anymore, though I would still keep an open mind on the matter until I get more tangible evidence.

According to one of Najib’s boys, the GAN or Anti-Najib Movement does exist. There are serious moves to oust Najib and it may not quite be as far-fetched to achieve if they can successfully link Najib to the Mongolian model’s murder.

Wow, I thought I was the great spinner of stories. It looks like even I have not yet attained that level of the greatest spinner of stories. Could this all really be true? Maybe we should after all ask why Tun Dr Mahathir refuses to meet Najib. Maybe it is not as unimportant as we first thought. Is it really because Tun Dr Mahathir is upset that Najib is in London trying to meet him when he should instead be back in Malaysia coordinating the flood relief in Johor? Or is it because Tun Dr Mahathir knows that Najib is a dead man walking?

Those at the top echelons of Umno say it is only a matter of time before Najib resigns from office. According to these people, the pressure on Najib is just too great and there is no way he can hold on to his post. He can of course do what Anwar Ibrahim did back in 1998. He too can stubbornly hold on to his post and refuse to resign. But then he too will meet the same fate as Anwar Ibrahim. Anwar’s stubbornness came with a very heavy price. Najib too will have to pay that same price if he remains stubborn. The only safe way out would be for him to resign. Of course, this would then mean he would never become Prime Minister. But then this would also mean he does not run the risk of being sent to the Sungai Buloh Prison to share the next cell with his left-hand man, Abdul Razak Baginda.

Penangite comments : Who is the Chief Minister who sent RPK the sms? i wonder, hehe. there are only 4 CMs namely, Dr Koh, Ali Rustam, Taib Mahmud and Musa Aman. unless if he includes Menteri Besars as Chief Ministers then we have more guesses. anybody wanna try?:P
