Yesterday Mahathir dropped a bombshell by announcing his resignation as a member of UMNO. This instantly sent a vibration throughout the nation, leaving the rakyat wide-eyed! By any standard, it was a shock.
The immediate question that cropped up generally is : Why did TDM resort to such a highly political move?
Simple - TDM has to move on since he was the one who initiated the game. He can't possibly call it off now - as we all probably have known, TDM never played a half-baked game throughout his political career.
Surprisingly drastic -It was of course a shock! If every step of TDM is within our palms, then he wouldn't have been the widely acclaimed Dr. M.
By departing UMNO, TDM took a step further to exert political pressure on Pak Lah. It appears to me that TDM has raised his ante in this politic game.
Let's all stay close to the ringside.
