It is a free country. Correction. It is a relatively free country. As such, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is free to articulate his views on anything, the weather in the North Pole to the quality of leadership in the country.
But Malaysians are free to disagree and reject whatever escapes from his lips these days.
Even a show of disdain would not be out of place for this political chameleon, who, day by day, shows a convenient ability to forget that many of the country's ills were sowed and took root during his time.
