Yes, so what? It won't change a bloody iota to what Mr Big Mouth is doing now. Mahathir Mohamad knows that nobody'll dare touch him for what he does or says. So he'll continue to harp upon Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. He'll continue to condemn him till kingdom come. He'll still hell bent on bad-mouthing him come what may. He'll even play the race card when it's convenient for him to do so. And he'll only shut up when his time is up. The only difference is that he'll now be sniping from without UMNO, not within. I'm really, really surprised that Abdullah and his cohorts had allowed it to go on for so long. I suppose this is what you get for practising elegant silence. Silence may be Golden, but Silence is not Golden all the time. But don't forget, people, this is typical Mahathirism; this is the ego of a man who only want things his own way; the arrogance of a man who forgets and remembers the same way you open and shut a box.
