Dr M: Build the bridge and I'll stop commenting

Build the bridge and the war will be over?

** Link - Tun Mahathir's letter to all UMNO Members

Excerpt from NST
PUTRAJAYA: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said yesterday that he would stop commenting if the bridge across the Johor Strait was built.

"Pak Lah (Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi) has to build the bridge. If he does that, I don’t have any more comments."

His reply came spontaneously when he was asked by reporters to comment on deputy Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin’s sale of his stake of 10.2 million shares in ECM Libra Avenue Bhd, a financial services company. Khairy is also Abdullah’s son-in-law.

"Oh yes... that is good. First, they have to sell, then they should leave the fourth floor and go away somewhere and Pak Lah has got to build the bridge. If he does that, I don’t have any more comments.

"Now Proton is dead... all the vendors, all the dealers and salespeople are all losing money, so they are doing a good job serving Proton as promised by the Prime Minister."

Dr Mahathir, speaking after a convocation ceremony at the Multimedia University, also challenged Khazanah Nasional’s board of directors to show proof that they did not support Proton’s decision to buy debt-ridden MV Agusta SpA in 2004.
