The SIN-KL Rail Link: This is not serious
There is no point thinking much less talk about the economic and social benefits of this proposal before we could even be confident about its political feasibility. I can understand the wayang nature of Malaysian politics but why is Singapore going down to play at that low level? Indeed the PAP government isn't like it used to be. They have not learned the lessons of the Pop. White Paper and henceforth they will be operating at that pathetic level.
If both governments were truly serious to make this happen a lot of details would have been hammered out before making this public. Both were just playing politics. They are facing the pressure of elections which the might lose, and ours trying to shift attention away from the White Paper fiasco.
Look at how little our Foreign Minister know about the project. The whole thing is just premature. Everyone is thinking of short term political fixes but naturally coy about admitting so.
