And there's no way he's ever going to consider rejoining Umno even if there was a change of heart in the leadership.
Zaid, former de facto Law Minister, was sacked from Umno for attending the opening of Parti Keadilan Rakyat's annual national congress in Shah Alam over the weekend.
But he reckons that he was sacked not "simply" for that but "because many leaders in Umno are not comfortable" with his views and stand on many issues.
He claims to be a "victim of double standards in Umno" and that he had not been given the opportunity to be heard.
He is also not aware of any specific violation that he had committed.
Zaid said this at a Press conference at the Tropicana Club in Petaling Jaya.
(*Zaid resigned as Minister in the PM's Department and senator on Sept 17 after he disagreed with the government’s decision to detain a journalist, a blogger and a Pakatan Member of Parliament under the Internal Security Act (ISA).)
