It is not often you read the newspaper and start to identify a common theme.
Yesterday, in the pages of the Asian Wall Street Journal, a very definite theme emerged, and it wasnt a positive one.
The first article I read examined the Malaysian governments decision to overturn a 25-year agreement with the state of Terengganu. This was an agreement that saw the state government get a 5% stake of oil revenues produced in its territory. Breaking this agreement will cost the local government M$810 million $213 million this year alone.
Why was this agreement broken
The central government - run by UMNO - doesnt like the new ruling party...
