The talk of the town is none other than this Malaysiakini report headlined” Pak Lah vows to foil Sept 16 http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/88849 . A local blog the brokenshield wrote on August 10th that September 7th is the day where it will see PRS discusses the expulsion of Larry Sng. Doesn’t this word sound familiar ,”thorn in the flesh”..? SAPP or YTL in particular was also referred as a thorn in BNs and Abdullah flesh. Will the AXES and the GUILLOTINE fall on these two..?
Some on the ground are already expecting especially SAPP that it is a matter of time sooner rather than later when the CHOP comes. As for Larry if all the rumours are to be relied and eventually come true PRS as brokenshield puts it i extract from the site,”Taib may be the first person to join Anwar if he knows that Anwar is going to form the next Federal Government in the interest of “Negara kita, bangsa kita dan agama kita”. In doing so, Taib is not only saving his own skin and protects his family’s business, but he may also be given a special position in the Anwar government. If this scenario is to materialize, then we Dayaks again will be caught with our pants down and will be left behind – this time we will be left far, far behind.” Larry will be saved don’t you think..?
So, James Masing did say Sarawak has got ‘Hornbills” and if this is what brokenshield sums up “Therefore in my mind, this is the time to strike when the iron is hot. Dayak leaders in PRS leaders such as Dr. James Masing, MP Joseph Salang, MP Joseph Entulu, and MP Aaron Dagang should seriously consider joining the Pakatan Rakyat and demand we be given more important posts in the Federal cabinet.”
Indeed September 7th will be a date the Party makes the decision. Of course there are elements within the groups that say Larrys divisions are split. It is the work of some who justs wants to pracise the divide and rule to slowdown the movements of the Dayaks. Party before self interests and a few of them are saying on the ground,”All they want are Councillorships” .This issue remains a hot topic as the Minister in charge is asking for the lists from the 4 BN parties at the end of September.
The BN leadership too is looking closely from the local blog the brokenshield ,”The presence of Sng Chee Hua and Sidi Munan who are aligned to Larry Sng were allegedly seen in the company of Anwar Ibrahim in Permatang Pauh.” I cannot confirm this but this has been going around for days in the local political circles. On numerous occasions, Anwar has claimed that he will get the required 30 MPs from the ruling coalition to jump ship to give the Pakatan Rakyat comprising PKR, PAS and DAP, a two-seat advantage and the right to form government.
There are no enemies in politics and in any arrangements they become allies against a common enemy at the time. Today nobody can still spell,”LOYALTY” to me without even blinking their eyes.hahaha. PRS embroiled in internal conflicts for far too long should move a step forward. James Masing will have to make the right calls and the right choices on who sticks with him and who gets washed away by the rushing flood waters.
Larry on the other hand should rethink,reshape and retrack where he went wrong.One too many of his true loyalists have been left standing ” HEADLESS “. TIME TO MOVE ON…..and serve a master who appreciates and recognises the values of each and every member. Sure someone will say James is no better.Aiyoo yo we know this is politics. We can’t teach dinosours to dance but at least James can move his hips. ”Unity is strength” Not born yesterday lah says a divisional exco member.
The divide and rule tactics are no more relevant in this day and age and if it does the “ugly head” will be chopped off. The ones who can contribute to the country in terms not just mere political rheotorics are those who cares about the nations well being and economic progress. These are the NEW FACE of Malaysia’s Political system and the direction of the political parties.
I will say it again,BN or Pakatan if it does not re-engineer,re-invent,re-model ,re-assess they will be REPLACED by the 13th General Elections. Don’t forget the voters are the people who mark X. and the party members are the voters who thinks that “person” is a good candidate to represent the party. Our people are already 51 years old and we are more mature and old ways of politiking is a thing of the past.
Malaysians now want leaders who can move the country forward and carry themselves in the international arena. There are too many ”elements” who don’t know the insights of how a political party is run but all they want to do is destroy the very institution it was built on.Don’t political parties have their own constitution with their “AIMS and OBJECTIVES“…So Parti Rakyat Sarawak your call..you have my vote if the concensus is the “Party MOVES on”….Any more questions..???
