On The Fast Track To Bankruptcy
Of course, the average Malaysian knows that it is about how much money the politicians can siphon from this project to build a 100 storey tower.
We already have the Twin Towers, which reigned as the tallest for awhile.
And then it was quickly overtaken by Taipei 101 (Taiwan) and Burj Khalifa (UAE).
So why do we need yet another Malaysia Boleh project?
It is not the first time I have said it, and I will say it again:
We are a nation that nurses its deep-seated insecurities by conjuring up ridiculously over-the-top mega-projects which serve no purpose beyond ego-stroking.
When thousands of Malaysians suffer traffic jams everyday due to our poor public transportation, do we need another white elephant?
At some point we need to come to our senses.
Let that be NOW.
