"We can't say Malaysia is a failure. It does not exist!"

We can't say Malaysia is a failure. It does not exist.

In future, we in Sabah and Sarawak should simply refer to Malaysia as the Federation and not Malaysia since the Federal Constitution defines Federation as that set up by the 1957 Federation of Malaya Agreement.

We should also refer to Peninsular Malaysia as Malaya, and Putrajaya as the Malayan Government in Putrajaya.

Again, the Federation set up by the 1957. Federation of Malaya Agreement is Malaya, not Malaysia which in effect does not exist as the Malayan Government is in non-compliance on the 1963 Malaysia Agreement.

The state governments of Sabah and Sarawak should be known as the Government of Sabah and Government of Sarawak.

Sabah and Sarawak are Nations in the Federation just as Scotland, for example, is a Nation in the United Kingdom.

I remember that before 1963, Singaporeans used to refer to Malaya simply as the Federation.

At that time, they considered themselves Malayans just like the people of Malaya. So, they didn't want to refer to only Malaya as Malaya since they considered both Malaya and Singapore as Malaya.
