you might be right, but please remember those unanswered questions you mentioned are created during Dr.M's time, and the current government have to bear it.
My humble opinion : To whoever it is who dropped the comment, what you meant is the Approved Permit (AP), the sale of MV Agusta, the termination of Tengku Mahaleel as Proton CEO and the scrapped Singapore-Johor scenic bridge are created during Dr. M's time? What I wrote here is based on a logic of a normal citizen of the country. Scrapping the scenic bridge project, this is current government decision, and do you know that even cancelling this project, the government need to pay a compensation of RM 100million to the contractor? Are you saying that it is Dr. M's decision to sell MV Agusta for a mere 2 Euro? I do not seem what you trying to debate here...
KLCC, the Commonwealth Games, the KLIA airport makes you proud? where we got the money to build all this? Dr.M's government borrow it from all over the world, and who have to repay it?
My humble opinion : It does to a CERTAIN EXTENT as I mentioned in my earlier post that these landmarks made Malaysian proud. Proud as in these landmarks put the name "MALAYSIA" in the world map. It makes us Malaysian got something to shout about. Yes, we do need financial assistance to build all this, not only for a country. Even when we do business, you do need bank facilities for you to expand the business right? When you buy a car, you also opt for bank facilities as well am I right? It is as if you are saying that all these projects are money wasting and serve to no purpose to the citizens. When Dr. M apply for loan from all over the world, do you think the rest of the world is fool enough to give it blindly to Malaysia just because of Dr. M? It must have been that the rest of the world know about Malaysia potentiality, Malaysia's ambition towards the Vision 2020.
the current government, where the current government have to find more money to repay it? from our taxes and petrol subsidies, so Mike, it is a chain reaction thingy.

My humble opinion : Yes, we as a citizen do complain about the price hike in everything, make it petrol, electricity, taxes, etc and yet we Malaysians are still paying for it, there is not riot, there it not street demonstration, no protest or whatsoever. We still pay for whatever the government decision is. If tomorrow they announce that water usage is going to increase, what can we do? We still need to use it and pay for it. We got no say on this. BUT, what I demand is an explaination where our money goes to. Even when the petrol price was increased, the government said that they will use the subsidy to improve the public transportation facilities, from your frank opinion, have the public transport services increase of lately? Think of it if you happen to drive along the MRR2 Kepong bridge.
To whoever it is, I do not mind comments, but please shoot some sense and logic to me and identify yourself if you have the guts to debate with me instead of putting an anonymous to it.
No hard feelings... Cheers!
