THE idiom “a slap in the face” means a sharp rebuke or rebuff. Shell’s planned pull out is an extensive pull-down for Sabah fragile economy.
Besides its promises, it has been and will continue to make millions from the pumping of our petroleum out of its two deep water wells. Shell is not pulling out of Malaysia. It is moving its upstream office out of KK and will build a new office to house them in Miri. The question is what are the underlying factors that have led to the Shell pull out.
Impotent words from Sabah politicians. Sabah political leaders have united for once to beat their war drums, showing their rage on this Shell pull out.
