Looks like YB Wee Choo Keong and the mysterious Sime Darby Watch, who broke the IJN story, are joining forces to oppose another controversial project - the Low Cost Carrier Terminal in Labu, Negri Sembilan.
SDW has drawn first blood here and the WCK's Question of the Week #42 here is on the RM1.7 billion project.A brief backgrounder: Sime Darby has been given Cabinet approval to build a Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Labu. Many suspect this to be part of Abdullah's "midnight regulations".
Labu is not in Malaysia Airport's KLIA expansion plan. In their masterplan, the new LCCT is to be near the Bunga Raya Complex. The masterplan, an aviation editor told me, was already approved by their Board of Directors.
"The government is derailing their own objectives, vision and mission for KLIA (of becoming a hub) when it approved the Labu airport. As it is, the present LCCT just opened its new arrival hall," the aviation editor said.
