Umno foes applaud Pak Lah’s parting shot

KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 – In a not-unexpected move, senior Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders latched on to one point in outgoing Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi’s speech this morning: a warning against a return to the “old ways.”

In fact, they were disappointed that he did not speak about the issue more extensively.

In his keynote address at the opening of the Umno General Assembly, Abdullah hit out at anti-reformists in the party saying that those who believed in the “old order” – read Mahathirism – risked hastening the party’s demise.


The above reminds me of Ong Ka Ting's outburst at UMNO as a "bully" after the final results of GE12 were known.

Why can't politicians speak their mind while they are in power? Better late than never but Badawi has missed the chance to become the best Prime Minister the country could ever had.
