So let it be written. So let it be done
The Imperial Perpetual Emperor has made an announcement that the Government intends to launch a new national car company.
He said this at a dialogue at the 24th Nikkei Conference on the Future of Asia on Monday.

He is thinking of a Proton Redux, a Malaysian new national car developed and built in collaboration with perhaps Thailand, South Korea or Japan as a partner.
The Star Online reported Do we really need a new national car company? Malaysians weigh in as they bewilderedly grappled with Mahathir's flabbergasting intention, especially in the wake of a so-called austerity drive coupled with the cancellation of Najib's MRT3.
Shows what bullshit he was sprouting about national debts. He has also shown his apathy towards public transport, which we now can with confidence confirm why.
Some of course support our new Malaysian Imperator-Hero with enthusiasm and much bodek-ination, while most in general did not receive the news well - fCK man they were mad as hell, with some urging correctly for more focus on public transport.
Extracts of the Star Online article announcing Mahathir's crazy silly obsessive intention are as follows:
“Every day, most of the roads are choked with cars, wasting time and money,” he added.
Karthikeyan Rajamohan said the MRT 3 rail transit project should be reconsidered instead of having a “Proton 2.0”.
Noni Jelani questioned the wisdom of the proposed idea: “So this is the reason why he scrapped public transportation project. To make new car. Do we need this right now?”
In Muhammad Nasruddin’s opinion, the move would be a waste of money: “Why la … better you build MRT 3, much more better.”
Daljeet Kaur said “one failed national car” is more than enough proof that Malaysia does not need another one.
“We need proper public transport to JB (Johor Baru) and Singapore. The train to JB is terrible. Fulfil your manifesto and don’t simply start projects that benefit no one,” she added.
Another commenter, Joel Lim, expressed alarm at the idea.
“Please stop! No more national car company please. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. We had enough trying to beat a dead horse. Let private companies make cars.
“Don’t do just for the sake of doing. Our market is too small,” he cautioned.
I say it again and again and again ........ Mahathir has not and will never changed. Old people don't change; instead they expect you, Malaysia and the world to change for them.
Couple this elderly trait with Mahathir's imperialistic manners and his bizarre obsessive hobby horse (no pun intended), and eureka, Malaysia may possibly get Proton Redux.
Don't whine, he's after all your Hero, wakakaka. Besides, his idea of Reform is to Re-form Proton.
