Another job creation, this project, almost going nowhere sea bridge, creates jobs for the unemployable graduates from the MU and a conduit for amassing tons of money for the politicians and their cronies. Now is a good idea to create a few more datuks to look after the bridge.The civil service is bloated with people doing nothing but twiddling their thumbs and that is all they do so I was told. This gives a new meaning to the word "job creation" which is about to go international just when you think they are running out of ideas.Can you build a bridge across international waters, and what would Ban Kee Moon and the yanks would say ? Well, on the positive side you can employ more people as toll collectors and increase the flow of illegal immigrants, sea pirates and land pirates as well. There will only one way traffic from Sumatra to Malacca. And who would in their right mind would go to Indo land.
I predicted this corrupt fiasco in my satire-fiction novel 'Tiger Isle-A Govt of Thieves'. Check it out at http://esshankar.com/
Centre span has to be at least 50 meters above the level of the sea. Can you imagine.
They can calculate and plan all they can, and all it takes is for an earth quake in the island of Sumatra, followed by a tsunami, and the whole bridge will be gone in 60 seconds, and all the billions gone too!
O, the bridge oso Made in China. Now you have corruption king coming in to teach you a lesson or two,but unlike you the Chinese do lop your head off every now and then.
