It is the dawning of the age of ...
For a nation of people who can't a) keep public toilets clean, b) maintain the exterior paintwork of buildings, c) keep litter off the streets, d) repair pot-hole in highways, e) obey simple traffic rules, f) police and regulate local councils.............we think we can operate and maintain a nuclear power plant???!!! France thinks we can (read this piece on French nuclear capabilities by Greenpeace) and according to Maximus Ongkili, South Korea thinks we can too. Of course they also think that we can afford to pay them the billions that will be needed to uphold their 'confidence' in our discipline. The only consolation is that (I might be wrong) the first nuclear power plant, will be in Johor. So it will at least take some time before the fallout reaches the Klang Valley. Maybe that's why those flers down south want all that sand. Maybe they want to build a lead-reinforced concrete wall between them and us. What you think?
