Malaysians remind Britons that 97-year-old Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is alive and older than Queen Elizabeth

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Malaysians remind Britons that 97-year-old Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is alive and older than Queen Elizabeth. 


King Charles III, who spent much of his 73 years preparing for the role, planned to meet with the prime minister and address a nation grieving the only British monarch most people alive today had ever known. He takes the throne in an era of uncertainty for both his country and the monarchy itself.

As the country began a 10-day mourning period, people around the globe gathered at British embassies to pay homage to the queen, who died Thursday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

Finance worker Giles Cudmore said the queen had “just been a constant through everything, everything good and bad.”

At Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, mourner April Hamilton stood with her young daughter, struggling to hold back tears.

“It’s just such a momentous change that is going to happen,” she said. “I’m trying to hold it together today.”

Everyday politics was put on hold, with lawmakers paying tribute to the monarch in Parliament over two days, beginning with a special session where Truss called the queen “the nation’s greatest diplomat.” Senior lawmakers will also take an oath to King Charles III.

King Charles III is now head of state in 14 countries outside the UK — a legacy of British colonization.

But some have indicated plans to cut those ties:

In Jamaica, officials have said they plan to become a republic and seek $10 billion in reparations for the slave trade.

It might be a glimpse of his future style as monarch. On visits Charles has become a rather affable, grandfatherly figure, putting up with a huge amount of small talk, and deploying plenty of self-deprecating humour.

He has always had a rather serious side to his character, with a natural sense of reserve, but he seems to have become a warmer figure, mellowing into his autumn years.

The King’s arrival back in London heralds the beginning of some tough days ahead. He’s lost his mother, but at the same is being pushed to face the public, in person and on TV.

He’s in mourning, with all the vulnerabilities that come with that, but at the same time is appearing for the first time in one of the highest profile jobs in the world.

Reactions below:

Michael: Mahathir is going to write a long ass thread about Lizzy's passing and somehow will manage to include the world Malays/Melayu at least a hundred times

Mohamed: Me : Ma , Queen Elizabeth already past away , it seems she is 96 years old 
Mum : it’s okay she lived really long and served 
Me : But Mahathir is 97 🫢
Mum : 😭(😂).

Patricia: Now the expectation has boomed. The day mahathir is gone, this app gonna be goated in this country.

Mqhele: Dr. Mahathir not saying or tweeting anything about Queen Elizabeth's death is very on brand of him.

One can say anything about him, but his stance towards anything British has not changed not even an inch, since zaman our datuk nenek dahulu.
