Johor Umno speaks up! We had to wait, but the Umno in Johor, the birthplace of the great party, has finally spoken up. Utusan Malaysia has the story HERE.
In a nutshell, the MEN in Johor have asked the Abdullah Administration to:
1/ cancel all projects that would benefit Singapore more than it would benefit Malaysia, especially the proposed KL-Singapore Bullet Train.
2/ stop taking into consideration Singapore's interest when implementing projects under the RM15 billion Johor South Corridor. [Abdullah has already appointed Singapore's Parkway Holdings Ltd, which runs Pantai Hospital, as consultant for the setting up of a mega medical hub in the South Corridor. see The Star Aug 12]
3/ to review overall relations with Singapore.
Lee Kuan Yew's disparaging statement about this country's "compliant" Chinese is the obvious excuse for these demands by the Johor Umno.
Slightly less obvious is the fact that Johoreans have been very unhappy with Abdullah's decision to cancel the crooked bridge because of Singapore's potential opposition and because, according to the PM, "the rakyat wanted it cancelled".
