"I believe the project has been shot down by non other then our visionary and proactive Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak!" - Pasquale of Barking Magpie
I must thank Observer for pointing out yet another link, Hellelujah! The gate community project at Universiti Malaya cancelled!
"For future generations". The Malay Mail's front page yesterday, UM Condo Plan Scrapped, is one of the best news to have come out since April.
I'm not sure if this means that other ill-conceived projects under Pak Lah's tenure as Prime Minister are also being reviewed, but the UM project is certainly one of those that deserve to be shot down. Annuar Zaini, credited by some as the mastermind behind this project, may not agree with me on this, though.

The blogger Big Dog also had a story on 10 Feb 2008 entitled Kroni PM Flip-Flop gadai 27 ekar tanah UM and has a link here [UM Land Scandal Resolved) to the Malay Mail's big scoop yesterday.
