Burn!!… Lundu District,Sarawak

Tony Thiens Malaysiakini story “Angry NCR landowners act against company” says it all. For full writeup check out the report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/84914

Pictures always says a “thousand” words and we were stunned to say the least. The government agencies and private investors cannot do just what they want? It does look like cheating the local natives, and they are unhappy with the treatment as the company has encroached their Native Customary land.

The government should not wait until it turns into an inferno like the guard house (pondok) which was set alight in Batu 11 Sematan Road. Much as we condone this actions somethings needs to be put right. They always say if you so much tries to break my “rice bowl” I will fight back. We do not want to see confrontational methods being applied but tactful negotiations are needed here……Don’t you think..??

Political Threats

When I was in England way back in the 80s I thought that hanging round, mixing, watching the Italians and English topboys using their intimidation tactics and threats against any “moles or rats” was bad. Times have move on but still when one told me a scorpion is a scorpion I beg to differ. The reality is such politics is who wants more wins or if you can’t take it just leave. Or is it, when you feel that it’s unjust..?

Tony Thien Malaysiakini correspondent http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/84913 writes “events in the last 24 hours have taken a disturbing turn”. “SAPP has taken extra caution for the safety of the MPs by calling them back to the party HQ in Kota Kinabalu for consultations on the next course of action, including the safety of their persons and families and the security of their offices,” he said

I for one has receive a lot of these threats especially when even within your own party there are some who portray themselves as the peoples representative but the words and sms they used are no better than the thugs or football hooligans that roam the football grounds just for kicks to get a high.

Politics is never dirty as I always say to my members in my PRS Batu Lintang division but some uses “dirty tactics and no holds barred ways” in the name of politics to achieve their own selfish aims. Business is no different and as in politics it is always,” who conducts the orchestra..?

Which party holds the power decides everything? The question of power cannot be evaded nor can it be brushed aside. The attainment of power is such that both sides of the divide will go all out to get to maintain or the complete transfer of the country’s adminstration and there is no middle course.

special report the sapp sabah betrayal 230608

Yong, as a political scholar puts it has taken a calculated risks and he knows better what is coming. SAPP afterall fired the first rounds and it must be willing to take what comes after…

Isn’t this the name of the game..? Just to make more juicy at press time the votes count in were 129 to 78. Would the 2 SAPP MPs have made the difference…? The ”rats” ha ha will now be subjected to more political intimidation………..

Merger Letter -PRS and SPDP

By A Keen Observer

 

Re : The proposed merger between the Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) and Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS)

taib mahmud

 Since the Chief Minister and Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud has expressed the wish for the two parties after their merger to  join his party PBB, why not adopt a short-cut measure and invite the YBs and members of the two parties SPDP and PRS) join PBB straight away?

If Taib’s intention is ultimately to bring UMNO into Sarawak , leaving SUPP in the lurch (anyway Supp is becoming increasingly irrelevant unless it follows the same footsteps as SAPP in Sabah), this short-cut process will make UMNO’s official entry into Sarawak faster.(This will of course please the UMNO protem Sarawak)

I am sure the majority of leaders of SPDP and PRS are not thinking beyond the merger of the two parties, because they are mindful that their origin was SNAP which Iban leaders like the late Tan Sri Datuk Stephen Kalong Ningkan started in the early 1960s before Malaysia was formed.

Both PRS and SPDP are multi racial parties and they can accommodate both Muslims and non Muslims. Multi-racialism is the way forward.Racial parties should be phased out.

Perhaps PBB should be turned into a multi-racial party that will take non Bumiputeras in keeping with the trends in Malaysia – like Parti Keadilan Rakyat.

This letter is interesting and we have had our own analysis and we feel that this is timely. As a politician i practise multi racialism and with the CMs strong worded statement it has open another avenue for discussion and meddling into other parties affairs. The divide and rule way is the rule of law in the past and it should be just be enbedded in the seabed.  Please read:- https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/06/21/join-me-join-us-dap-sarawak-malaysiakini/

Motion..Price Hike? No Confidence? Petronas?-Malaysiakini

Updates:- Merger Letter -PRS and SPDP https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/06/23/merger-letter-prs-and-spdp/

Latest:- 6.30P.M

  1. Barisan Nasional motion on price hikes was passed 129-78. Bloc vote called for only for the second time ever Shahrir reveals our net oil export 118,000 barrels daily, giving RM20 billion annual surplus. He adds 37% of Petronas revenue comes from overseas operations.
  2. Deputy speaker Datuk Wan Junaidi confirms no motion filed on no-confidence vote against PM
  3. DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang (Ipoh Timur) to seek leave to adjourn the House under Standing Order 18 (1) to discuss Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Kamarudin’s statutory declaration

The government’s motion moved by Shahrir is the first order of business on the first day of the second parliamentary sitting after a three-week break. Fauwaz Abdul Aziz has tabled this mornings report up in Malaysiakini portal and also conspicously missing are the 2 SAPP MPs after they had issued statements against the PM. The full excerpts:- http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/84874

We say,”The expectation is greater than the actualisation”  The past 48 hours has seen

  1. The SAPP creating a stir by coming up with the no confidence motion but failing even to hand in the notice. Will it see the light of the Day? 
  2. Price Hike issue motion it will divert the whole  attention from PM.
  3. Petronas we are made to understand that there are some “shocking revelations”. The Members of Parliament should boldly raise up this very important issue in Parliament for the benefit of the oil-producing states so it says.
  4. Altantunya emergency motion tabled by Lim Kit Siang, MP (Ipoh Timur)

Our sources say that the motions that will be tabled will “somehow deliberately” try to question the leadership of the PM but it will all be toned down by the Speaker. This is an art perfected by the opposItion. It will be the first time in the history of Malaysia if the motion of no confidence even see the light of the day.

We say that when PM announced he intends to seek re-election as leader of the governing party, the Umno, in December this will happen. This to us will still see the light of the Day. The conspiracy theory is bigger than you and me. Don’t you think so…? 

Whoever leads will come after December 20th 2008. UMNO will still be relevant to govern the country for the next 5 years. There will be changes as Abdullahs reforms from 2004 will be followed through i.e. judiciary reforms,corruption will be curtailed, and the development plans.

Malaysia will come out of all this stronger and more resilient as we all know now our Members of Parliament has a job to do or else….
