"... is not our "mega" project it will be Singapore's, it is now official that this project will become an official de facto extension of Singapore."This morning, GoBlog, another poster, said he alarmed to learn how much the SJER seems to be tailored to Singapore.

Syed Hamid puts Johor Sultan in "right context". This Johorean minister is certainly not a "yes" man when it comes to his own Sultan. Here, he saw it fit to interpret what the Sultan meant when he called for the dismantling of the Causeway yesterday.
