Patrick Keith's Ousted! is still hot in S'pore

The late Patrick Keith's book on the 1965 separation between Malaysia and Singapore, Ousted-An insider's story of the ties that failed to bind (Singapore, Media Masters, 2005) is still on the top selling list in Singapore's Horizon distributor. The story may be old but, in Patrick Keith's words written in Melbourne in July 2005, " the same political power structures operating 40 years ago (in Malaysia and Singapore), in essence, remain in place today".
