On hindsight, at the height of the nation's will during Tun's supremacy we could have get on with the water processing plant in Johore in superb running condition to supply more than enough water for the southern region. Alas, we are now whimpish.
Strategically, it would of course overshadow the twin towers in terms of satisfaction to the rakyat, honing of local expertise, and lastly and not the least our bargaining power. I do not see the cards on our sleeves. The present and past leaderships are/were mired in trial and error priorities notwithstanding the flip-flopping.
We are a small country that talk big. Indah khabar dari rupa. Cakap tak serupa bikin. That is why we are being taught one shameful lesson after by smaller neighbours the likes of Brunei and Singapore. What do we expect from bigger countries? They just bully us.
If we really want to make money we can sell recycle water if they want it to make newater! The herring-bone pipeline arrangement could very well channel recycle water right from Perlis to inundate the whole of Singapore.
Talking about inundation, is the rising sea water level due to climate change shrinking the island! Aha, that is the reason they want sand!!
