Here we go again

Condolences to Kampung Pasir residents who lost family members and homes to yesterday's landslide.

After the search and rescue operation is over, after the finger-pointing at greedy developers, after the setting up of a taskforce to tackle landslide problems, after a promise to scrutinize all hillside development, where will we be 1 year from now?

We've heard it all before. All the promises to stop hillside development. But it still goes on. There's no need to ask developers to comply to strict guidelines. Just stop all hillside development! Problem solved.
