IS SAMY VELLU NYANYUK?
TV3's Midnight Nightline this morning featured Datuk Samy Vellu at the site of the MRR2 with foreign consultants who will be responsible for making the MRR2 safe for public use. Apart from blaming the Malaysian weather for the deteriorating condition of the MRR2, which makes one wonder why the same thing doesn't happen to the other similar structures in the country, the Minister also said something which made him look as though he was "nyanyuk". When asked by one of the reporters how long the MRR2 would last after the repair, he brazenly declared, "Bridges are built to last 100 years." Then he continued, "The MRR2 is now 5 or 6 years, so 96 years more, lah!
