"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Voluntary Decolonisation

"The decolonisation of Portuguese Africa came intimately to be linked with the demise of the dictatorship in metropolitan Portugal. Quite clearly, the impetus for, and the political orientation of, the coup which eventually toppled the Salazar-Caetano regime owed much to the involvement of the military in the African nationalist wars. Hence, the history of Portugal's march to democracy is inextriably connected with that of the decolonisation of its African empire" --- A History of Postcolonial Lusophone Africa / Patrick Chabal
