Malaysia's Battersea: Saving London's famous white chimneys

Nuraina Samad has a posting on these white phallic structures, too. Click here. 
Original article: Read the article in which PM Najib Razak is mentioned, and my comments after:  

Full article h e r e 
As Malaysians, we should be proud with the wave Sime Darby, SP Setia and EPF are creating in the UK. They are going to tear things down and build a multi-billion pound sterling redevelopment there while "saving" the landmark white phallic symbols in the name of preservation.   
The chimneys will be knocked down and replaced by replicas
Now that's something whoever is trying to re-develop the Tugu Negara environs into their so-called Malaysia Truly Asia Centre (read the latest on that h e r e) should at least attempt to do. Help us preserve our heritage. 
It shouldn't be all about making profits.
