The formation of Malaysia as part of Britain's “de-colonization” plan was an extremely controversial issue which was opposed both locally and internationally in the 1960s. Britain had planned a direct transfer of its Borneo colonial territories to Malayan rule without even first granting independence to the territories. It was seen by its critics as just exchanging the old colonial master for a new one. Despite its 50 years of existence Malaysia has remained a smouldering issue which in very recent years saw it flaring up again as the Sabah and Sarawak people most affected by its negative effects have begun to question the value of their countries' relationship with Malaya in Malaysia.
