    i thot he insisted on a pegged?
    the world bank/imf insisted a free floating of the ringgit and the DPM then was all for implementing it too.
    its still pegged till today, did them no harm though.

    That was for charity.

    So you are thinking that maybe 5 years down the road, politicians will be giving out memoirs/autobiographies for free?

    Don't play, play with Dr. M though he may be getting old and senile. Who knows if he may come over to Singapore and start curving the Benjamin Sheares Bridge too.

    He might have done a good job maintaining his outer appearance but his brain is not as clear as before. Nowadays, distorting the facts are his strong points.

    Can't blame him. People can be forgetful and he is getting more forgetful.

    Cheap ballpoint pen plays a part...most importantly is Mahathir might 'forget' he was the one who sign it. Thats why the signature have not 'value'...at all. : )
