Mr LKY will agree on what Dr M said in his blog
Although Mr LKY and Dr M were rival when they were PM of Singapore and Malaysia respectively and they hardly agreed on anything with each other, I think this time Mr LKY will agree on what Dr M said in his blog article, A Weak Government is not good for Multi-racial Malaysia. To certain extent, I agree with Dr M as well.
Politically, the opposition is the enemy. Being forced to work with the opposition is not undemocratic but it shows up the weakness of the Government.
A weak government is not good for multi-racial Malaysia. It leads to unwarranted challenges against its authority. Governments cannot please everybody. If a Government cannot be firm and is forced to flip-flop there will be a lack of confidence which does not augur well for the smooth implementation of policies or project. Some people might already have noticed this.
A Government with little need for opposition support would be better able to disregard the sniping that all Governments must face. It should however take note of opposition views and respond where necessary.
