Mahathir as the Pm should be a bit more humble and less of an ego.
Singapore has politely asked Bolehland to confirm whether it intends to cancel the High Speed Rail project or what it actually wants.
Instead of a simply reply, Bolehland has kept quiet about its true intention.
Now Mahathir says Singapore knows what we want hahaha.....Which is? hehehe...
That is not the way to do business with another sovereign country with whom we have dealings, especially not with an immediate neighbour.
Saying further that if Bolehland were to be more specific, it would spook the market hahaha.....
So, market (what the hell that creature is) is god and all else must kow tow to it? ho ho ho.....
We have already spooked the market anyway, with the revelation of a trillion ringgit debt. If that was good for the nation, why is being upfront on HSR bad?
What harm would being honest about what we intend do with a contract we had signed - whether we intend to honour or breach it? Or what?
Keeping quiet and hoping Singapore would unilaterally abandon their part of contractual obligations is not the way to do business. They are incurring daily costs too.
Either you say cancel or proceed to re-negotiate terms but not keep your neighbour guessing and saying they know what we actually want.
Even Bolehlanders themselves don't know what their government really want - to do or not do HSR.
Or spook or not to spook the holy market? hehehe...
