He has left UMNO. He was its president for 22 years.
Chief Nazri Aziz will play a dominant role. I once told him that the reason why Najib keeps him around is because he is a useful attack dog. I am using the term dog in the same spirit as he used the term on Muhyidin.
Salleh Said Keruak said Dr M made the right decision. He is saying old Dr Mahathir is not significant. His other colleague, the newly minted UMNO information chief sees it differently. He acknowledges the significance of Mahathir when he accuses Mahathir of willing to kill UMNO because of Najib. If Mahathir is not significant, his exit will not kill UMNO, will it?
If Najib is the cause of this, then the UMNO supreme council must suspend its president.
And I hope this action by Dr Mahathir will awaken a particular someone who lives a hermit way of life somewhere in the leafy suburbs of KL.
Nota Bene. My next article will appear on the 8th of March. I am now writing once a week. It will be a series of articles appearing weekly about the crooked leader and his corrupt and reactionary government.
