Najib could not have gotten a worst start in his attempt to stamp a mark as PM with a new approach on how Malaysia should be managed and its relations with Singapore. He started with lots of promise for cooperation and development, and to do away with the time consuming and unproductive politicking of Mahathir's days. Unfortunately in his haste to get things moving, he forgot that there are Sultans in Malaysia. And Mahathir's way of by passing the Sultans is over. Building bridges, straight or crooked, is not a simple affair and the Sultan must be consulted. Now, before anything can happen, the Sultan has made it clear, I Sultan, cannot be ignored. I am still around and kicking. How is Najib going to negotiate this mountain is going demand the best political skills from him. And his key party members are starting to voice their opposition to the idea as well. On hindsight, LKY should make it his last stop at the JB Istana for dinner before coming home.
