Am sure most of you are aware of today's sensational headlines. Here are some excerpts if you have yet to read the papers:
At 10pm last night, Dr Mahathir posted further explanations on his http://www.chedet.com/ blog.
“I am quitting because Umno now is no longer the Umno that was set up 62 years ago to fight for the Malays, Islam and Malaysia (Malaya).
“The Umno now only exists to support Abdullah, his family and actions and policies that are not in line with interests of the race, religion and country,” he said.
Dr Mahathir said he decided to leave Umno as he felt his participation as a member is “meaningless and no longer useful.”
“Because Datuk Seri Abdullah is blind and deaf and does not understand the message by Barisan members, because some Umno members have joined in, because the democratic process is not moving, because Umno now is no longer the Umno established 62 years ago, I find my participation as a member meaningless and no longer useful,” he said in his blog. (excerpts from The Star online)
Fer Fook's Sake cordially invites all rationale Malaysians to post their thoughts & comments on The Mighty Tun's latest political manoeuvre. Bear in mind he seems to think that a mass desertion among the rank & file is the best fooking way to get rid of his appointed successor - Bodohwi. He also seems fairly confident they everyone will rejoin once Bodohwi & gang are outsted & his pro-Mahathir cronies are installed.
The Opposition are having a field day. PAS - coz it was a blokey from their ranks - Ismail Pawan Teh - who had challenged the Mighty Tun to resign from UMNO. Anwar - thinks it is a great chance to tempt them UMNO fookers over to this side.
Me is of the humble opinion that a mass desertion may actually destroy UMNO/BN (HOORAY!) as there's no iron-fisted tyrant like Thy Mighty Tun to hold it together like when Semangat 46 was formed as a splinter group. The Old Man is playing a very risky game.
What do you think? Look forward to reading yer comments.
