From day one Najib has been the favourite of Mahathir, and Najib cannot go wrong, such is the relationship that exists between them. The son may falter a bit here and there, but the old man at 83 years of age understands, he is fallible like any other especially when he has to carry the burden of a boss who flip flops here and there, sleeps when he should be an example for conscientious attention, a weakling if there was one, and a person not destined to wear the crown forever; or at least for a short stipulated period. This boy does the work of two persons, and in complete honesty, I can vouch for his faithfulness and sincerity.

I wanted to see the trusted one to get input from the horse’s mouth, just after the March 8 fiasco, but then, he was forbidden by the ruthless one and hence I was disappointed not with my chosen one but his boss the terror. Najib just can’t go against the wishes of the one who tails him every minute of the day, so says Mahathir. The world believed, Badawi must have resorted to the latest in technology to keep track on Najib. Najib could do nothing and his mentor understood. Such is the enviable relationship that co-exists between the old man and his well beloved.

This is good for a story but in real life it is not the same. The younger one is practical, more experienced than what his mentor thought he was. He knows which side of the bread is buttered, and for all intends and purpose he has to fall in line with what his boss says, although his love for the old man exists.

However good the story, or however good the plot or theme the story develops, there is a thing known as climax – a make or break situation that gives colour to the whole tale. This has just happened.

The young man won’t see the old man just yet, the old man just got into a jam resigning, the old bread and buttered thing comes into play, and Najib has to decide where his inclination is, his boss or his mentor.

They say sons are always unfaithful to fathers, but still the fatherly love, strong, without malice, without any benefit, remains the same.

PEKAN, May 24 (Bernama) — Umno Deputy President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today he would meet Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to discuss the latter’s decision to quit Umno, but not in the near future.
“I have given it thought but it is not necessary that I meet him in the near future. Let’s see the situation,” he told reporters here when asked whether he was prepared to meet Dr Mahathir again to discuss his spat with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Najib, who is the deputy prime minister, called on Umno members to focus on the work of rebuilding the party and getting closer to the people.
Asked what action would be taken against Umno Youth executive committee member Datuk Mukhriz Tun Mahathir for having demanded the resignation of Abdullah, he said the Umno Management Committee would require a comprehensive report on the matter from Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.
Najib had attended a ceremony at Sekolah Kebangsaan Sri Maulana where a circumcision and ear-piercing ceremony was held for 143 children.
Earlier, he launched a “Hadhari” village carnival organised by private television station TV9 and the Pahang Islamic Religious Affairs Department at the Pekan District Council square.
