SAPP call it a day. Yong definitely hates waiting.

The decision to pull out was made at the SAPP supreme council meeting where its president Datuk Yong Teck Lee obtained the support of nearly all of its 35 members and declared that SAPP was not joining Pakatan Rakyat.
Yong said his party would remain independent in the opposition bench until a time came when SAPP was ready to be back in government.
Opposing Yong's pullout move was SAPP deputy president Datuk Raymond Tan (Deputy Chief Minister and the state Infrastructure Minister), vice-president Jimmy Wong (political secretary to the Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman) and Elopura assemblyman Au Kam Wah.
SAPP's withdrawal good for BN, says Pak Lah
PUTRAJAYA (thestar) : The Sabah Progressive Party's (SAPP) withdrawal from the Barisan Nasional is a good thing as it was a problem within the coalition, said Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
"Good riddance. They are a problem. It is okay, he (SAPP president Datuk Yong Teck Lee) is a trouble-maker, let him go,” the Prime Minister said.
Zaid Ibrahim had resigned from the cabinet. Mahathir has return to Umno. Muhyiddin Yassin is lawan toke. Now Yong Teck Lee bakar kelambu. No, its not good for BN. If it so good than why can't he just sack Yong and his party earlier on, instead of playing a waiting game. Another indecisiveness?
SAPP Hanya Pengacau: Abdullah PUTRAJAYA, 17 Sept (Bernama) -- Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi berkata sudah sewajarnya Parti Maju Sabah (SAPP) meninggalkan Barisan Nasional (BN) kerana mereka merupakan masalah di dalam parti.
Beliau yang enggan mengulas lanjut berkata SAPP disifatkan sebagai `pengacau' dan pemergian mereka harus dibiarkan.
So actually, Pak Lah did not really mean it. First thing first; it is about lepas geram. Yong had pissed him off.
