Just when you had giggled your arse off at the jet engines which went missing and wondered what next, as if on cue comes the next joke. Apparently, our spanking new state of art Scorpene submarine KD Tunku Abdul Rahman has developed problems that make it unfit for diving. Yes, a submarine which cannot dive !

According to Minister of Defence Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, “ the submarine can still dive, but when we detected the defects, we were advised not to dive”. Mmm…don’t they do test drive, I mean test dive as in this case to confirm that the submarine purchased can submerge and dive before taking delivery. Instead, we are now relying on the warranty clauses and defect liability clauses.

I hear Singaporeans are laughing their heads off !
