There's been a rv on the word expulsion first into withdrawal and then later separation. Though the word withdrawal and separation are less controversial, it's an expulsion nonetheless. The Parliament at that time explicitly voted to expel Singapore. It was the actual verb used back in the Parliament in 1965. Lee Kuan Yew usede the same verb IIRC in his memoir, "The Singapore Story". Moreover, the term "separation of singapore" doesn't describe what happened in 1965. It doesn't sound right either since a person without proper background in Malaysian and Singaporean history would think "separation of singapore" would refer to singapore being separated by itself (e.g. one Singapore into Singapore A and Singapore B), instead of being separated from something (i.e. the Federation). Expulsion of Singapore however describes the situation succinctly. __earth(Talk) 16:16, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
What about secession? It seems like a good compromise to me. The problem here is that although it was a secession/separation de jure, in reality, it was a de facto expulsion. Johnleemk | Talk 11:07, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
This template is too long. There are too much specific details, and not important. We should only keep the events that are significant and last for a long period. User talk:184.108.40.206 —Preceding signed but undated comment was added at 07:31, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

can anyone here please help me? I need help in the data. It seems that it can only add until 35 data. I want to add more. User:Williamteoh97(Talk) 12:59, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
I've reverted. This template is already large, and should contain only the most important points of history. A list of every incident belongs at Timeline of Malaysian history. CMD (talk) 08:56, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
