CheDet resigns from UMNO!


Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad announced at 12:35pm today from Alor Setar that he resigns from UMNO. Reason for resignation as a protest against PM Dato’ Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

No wonder his voice was not steady during the interview with Bernama on topic of Lingam Tape Royal Inquiry where Tun M said go on, investigate. The man must have been angry, terribly angry at this undignified political slap in the face.

And so, today, in his resignation announcement, Tun M also invites other UMNO members to resign. BUT, not to join other political parties…

Like this blogger here, I suspect we shall see a revival of Semangat 46 or a rebranded one as Semangat 88 soon?

Wonder what the other members of the component parties in Barisan Nasional must be thinking now. Uneasy? Happy with respite from heat as UMNO is now in the full blast of the super trooper and will be indulging in it for some time?

Students of politics, please take this golden opportunity to learn top skillful political play from the best of the best, ok?
