Snippets - Zaid Ibrahim and UMNO


As posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at www.chedet.com on December 3, 2008 3:48 PM

1. UMNO has now sacked Zaid Ibrahim from the party.

2. This is the man who was held in high esteem by UMNO President Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi so that from among hundreds of UMNO leaders of sorts, he chose Zaid Ibrahim, a dubious character who could not be accepted even by his own Kota Bahru division and was not made a candidate in the 2008 Election. It is known that Zaid was in Perth, Australia during the elections.

3. Seeing Zaid's behaviour toward UMNO lately, the rumours that he was supporting the opposition against the UMNO/Barisan Nasional candidate in the March 2008 Elections must have been true.

4. Now Zaid has left his benefactor with controversial issues which can only undermine the support for UMNO / Barisan Nasional whatever his benefactor may try to do. And Najib will inherit these headaches when he takes over.

5. Seems that I am not the only one to make wrong choices.
