Singapore Should Buy JB
Hey, with all those Australian assets, Singapore should be able to pro-actively address some of the issues in the region.
Singapore should buy Johor Bahru from Malaysia. Couldn't cost all that much as it hasn't been cleaned or serviced in the last 15 years. This would give lots more real jungle for Singapore soldiers to train in rather than just the fairway rough on the golf-course at Seletar. Plus getting all the water and SAND it needs, avoiding outright war with Indonesia for a couple more years.
With the money from the sale, Malaysia could buy the lower half of Thailand. This would create a Muslim state - isn't that what they want? So long as the terrorists don't link to Al-Queda they won't be evil.
With the money from THAT sale, Thailand's
army police force Government could fund the legal battle to retrieve all the money from Thaksin ShinCorp and then buy back its Telcoms from Temasek! The rich lawyers could then join the rush to buy properties in Australia, just as Australians are buying up golf-side properties in Phuket.
And Singapore would have all its money back!
And everyone could go home, wherever that is.
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
hahaha! send this brilliant suggestion in!
And who says you don't know how to be diplomatic?
Val: the Gahmen has my blog on its watch list already I'm guessing, so they'll get the message right enough.
Indy: who indeed one-comment-man?
Yea but how long would it be before JB is just another string of shopping centers?
Ouch...that my friend is a low blow, and if my self esteem was not securely bouyed by other things I would take offence ~grin~
Skip: and before the golf green fees double!
Indy: maybe I am not such a diplomat after all, but is the wick still dry?
