Could this be the REAL reason why Mubarak stepped down?

Unconfirmed reports from an Egyptian newspaper were circulating last night that Mubarak fell into a coma on Saturday.

This would explain why his deputy, Suleiman, gave his concession speech, as well as explaining his apparent overnight change of mind. People have been speculating on his poor health for a while now, so this isn’t completely from left field, but I will stress that it could just be rumours.

Mubarak falls into coma after final speech: Al Arabiya.

Egypt’s deposed president, Hosni Mubarak, went into a full coma on Saturday night at his residence in the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, an Egyptian newspaper reported on Monday, quoting well-informed sources.

Mubarak and his family moved to Sharm al-Sheikh on Thursday night following his final speech, in which he handed over executive authority to former Vice-President Omar Suleiman, Egypt’s al-Masry al-Youm reported.

    I reckon the reason Suleiman gave the speech was to give Mubarak time to move around his $6-40bn into untraceable accounts.

    Don’t be silly. Where would he get that kind of money?
