    How can they want Singapore back? We are an independent country, they are a state trying to get independence. The only way of getting us back is through War or the could join us and become a GRC hehehe...

    They need us more than we need them. Even for water issue, we are already quite independent of getting our own water, and we are making progress on it.

    Johore as an independent nation would fail as they don't have the calibrate of political leaders to run the country.

    Lol

    But I don't think it will succeed as an independent country.

    It is better for Malaysia to breaks into various state country. Now, some states are supporting others and their sultans. Once they break up, you will see many will suffer and not talk nonsense.

    No. Singapore's first generation of leaders were the best team to have made it what it becomes today.

    When one thinks they are best, that is when the failure starts. They maybe the better ones but never know who is the best till you let others prove it.

    Running singapore and Malaysia is a totally different ball game. Not even apple to grape comparison. We did well enough but we need more people like our early leaders that want to make this place work for everyone. The urge to serve.
