Tun Dr Mahathir makes the news again.
This time he's given UMNO the finger and even encouraged a few others to follow in his footsteps.
Frustration or just plain sandiwara?
There was once when the old bugger had the entire nation under his thumb. The economy was good, the country was prosperous and it was a good place to live.
Even with Mahathir's occasional remarks and tiffs with the foreign media and even other leaders, we sort of had a regional presence.
But that ended.
He grew old. We matured as a nation. We went through some rough times with the economy. And then Abdullah took over.
Promised us the end of corruption, more free speech, and a whole lot more which we may or may not have believed.
But he reneged on some of his promises. Or rather promises made by Mahathir on behalf of him. And that angered Mahathir.
A man, who for 22 years had his own way.
He openly went against Abdullah, condemning, criticising and asking him to step down.
This act of resigning is one of them.
Will it still work now?
I don't know.
But Malaysian politics has never been this interesting.
