24/36″The Fear of 1987 Repeating Itself”
March 12, 2010 8 Comments
1987 was the Ming Court Affair. Thought Provoking..? History about to repeat itself.? Didnt 1987 changed the way how the powers control the political scene in Sarawak ? Is Pakatan Sarawak the New force and a New platform for the opposition to surf their way to the Corridors of Power?
Usually there must be a spark of some sort which will further PUSH FOR A REVIVAL. The groundswell is there and even amongst the BN dayak politicians there is a call for “Dayakism”. Why? What ‘s wrong? Where is it happening? Who are the forces behind? When is it happening?
One school of thought is that,”Its not so much the opposition is strong but BN versus BN which will benefit the Pakatan group? Even the push to oust the so called towkays in the BN aligned political parties is reaching feverish momentum. PRS has already reengineered the move with the Sng faction taken out of the equation and it seems SPDP is also moving towards that.
SUPP will self explode and DAP will be the beneficiary if they still maintain the OLD GUARDS to protect the already cracked castle. PBB is also experiencing the posts Taib Era and the successors to be pushing their claims for the holy grail. Will they be able to even SNIFF THE HIGH CHAIR..?
Lim Kit Siang has even dared the opposition to look at depriving the Sarawak BN of its 2/3rd majority and even suggested for the 36 magical number of overthrowing the BN.
Nothing is impossible as the dayaks are slowly but surely pushing the BN powers from within on a collision course and it spells TROUBLE FOR BN AS A WHOLE. The boiling point will be very soon and the ground is reverberating with calls of NO U TURN by the Separatists 5 plus 3 which does not help BN in totality.
BN should be looking at going to the ground serving the rakyat instead of the “Whispering Revival of Dayakism” Imagine hearing with my own ears,”I am for Dayakism”
The rural areas “appears on paper“though as still BN stronghold but with Borneo Warrior and Broken shield playing this up,” “Jabu has a lot of weaknesses and failures and we need to highlight these failures to the voters and make them understand the issues,” said Tedewin Ngumbang, another potential candidate for the constituency.
It certainly is BN versus BN which will galvanise and ensure the people or rural voters make a switch and a very opportune time to do it. In the 2006 elections you could hardly see any opposition members so “DARING or OPENLY” carrying SLOGANS or party flags.
24/36 seems to be the rallying cry for the Pakatan Sarawak group to inspire and push the oppositon members to capitalise on the dissatisfaction and infighting which is so evident in the BN parties.The waters are calmer now especially with the Pakatan machinery in place and their ground troops moving not only out of their fox holes but openly mixing and capitalising on BN’s weaknesss which is INFIGHTING .
Who would have thought this year alone the world is experiencing a lot of Earthquakes whether its a small recorded seismic reading or a devastating one. 308 BN parties were so complacent and look what happen?
2006 SUPP President George Chan apologised and said sorry that SUPP losts 8 seats. One cannot imagine what will happen in the next State election as there are too many factors which are not in BN’s favour. PBB will almost certainly retain all its seats but if the ground shake is nothing short of devastation a few seats might justs be lost. 24 or 2/3rds majority looks realistically within reach.
The towkays in BN needs to know who will they back and they might just be the catalyst for change. Dont overlook what has been written and BN will need to buck up or they might just be deprived of the majority. Who dares to predict that the Opposition parties will not capitalise on BN’s weakness?
Its up to BN to shore up the cracks in the fortress or be left devastated into a rumble of rocks. 1987 is a lesson learnt and “dayakism” can never be ruled out nor ignored as Sarawaks population is made up in majority of dayak origin. The first person who said it will not happen again will deservedly be given a good right hook or a slap to tell him don’t be over confident.
Read the ground movements………….. Just a thought ”Who then will be the next Tun Rahman and Leo Moggie as the commanders in chief as in 1987? Do you have their names….???
