As much as I want to admire the man for his honesty,endeavour and sustainability in this political tumultuous times I would very much go along with the many phone calls I received of James is up to “something” syndrome. Hearsay, no.,no when I wrote in the Malaysiakini portal Muhyiddin “Elimination Process” PM is Boss I was trying and pushing the envelope to the edge. Open up,inside it reads,Oops,” …..I am the Boss”
Malaysiakini correspondent Syed Jaymal Zahiid has a report of Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid who fired a warning shot to BN ,” Reduce fuel price or ready to go” the full report:- http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/85663 . Apparently when the Pakatan sings the loudspeakers even blared as loud in Sarawak. Is James about to do a U-turn? Has he sense that not only the people are angry with the fuel prices but the anger is also directed to the CM. Has his “chorus boys” as Anwar calls them sending SOS signals to the BN government. What James said in the local tabloids has open a can of worms for many. It seems that James has been talking and sending his feelers around even more as the Sarawak State elections date looms near. Is he so afraid of coming down from the throne? I know now that he is slowly but surely embarking on a crusade of Ketua Menteri 3. “Didn’t Anwar say if Pakatan wrestles Sarawak a Dayak will head the administration? Timing is everything in politics and given the fluidity of the situation one only needs to capitalise.
The political circle yesterday was rocked with James statement,” given the startling results on March 8th,Sarawak’s rural seats more than half of the 71 seats could well hold the key to who forms the next State government” Winning by BN or Pakatan Rakyat the (opposition alliance) will depend, I believe,on who can win the rural seats.For BN the rural constituencies were,are and the will be its strength it will be the factor which determines the continuity of the BN governement. He even said that the line between “pembangkang” or opposition and who was the government was beginning to blur.
This has got me refering James as practising ” Machiavellianism’ is the term that some social and personality psychologists use to describe a person’s tendency to deceive and manipulate others for personal gain. Dr. James by the way is an Anthropologist where one relates to the scientific study of the origin, the behavior, and the physical, social, and cultural development of humans.
So where does he go now? Embarking on ketua Menteri 3 will be appropriate as Dr.Chan (Pesident of SUPP) did specifically mention in an article which appeared in the Singapore Straits Times dated 23rd of June 2008 on our CM. In it the senior writer says that the CM of Sarawak who has served 25years at the helm and agrees to let go more.
However there is talk of Taib handing over to his long standing deputy, Jabu.. (This is the part which really gets me-But many see Jabu as a place-holder at bests before another Melanau or non-dayak,non Christian leader can take over).There are obviously more than that said in the article and it takes a Singaporean newspaper to point it out. James will be overlooked again. James sees that KM3 is at hand and this oppurtunity should not be wasted. One dayak political ally of yesteryears with James says that James is starting to play the same tune and reinvent that syndrome again. The communal warfare drums are sounded and now the warriors are more than ready to mount another challenge eventhough KM1 and KM2 failed.
Rightly or wrongly analysed James will offer many a run for his money. His own constituency of Balleh he is inpenetrable and its a bastion for the BN. “Not unless otherwise” says a political secretary to the CM. He must also have taken a page out of Khalids book If the BN government does not safeguard the welfare of the rakyat, they will crush you,” In the 9th Sarawak State Elections in 2006 Sarawak BN lost 9 seats to the opposition which prompted the PM to say,”we have to study why the opposition won quite a number of urban seats.We have to make a thorough analysis”
Now even the merger which was so significantly hot for a few weeks James has this to say that they have to use the PBDS experience as a milestone for the merger. It must be noted that a blog site had this to say,” Masing was quick to ask Taib: “Sir, are you serious in seeing that the two parties merge?” Without hesitation, Taib replied: “Ya, ya, of course I am serious.” Seriously, has James suddenly come good in going against the CM’s intentons? This action by James is tantamount to “menconteng arang ke muka CM” so says a youth leader in Parti Rakyat Sarawak.
Is James or PRS leaving their options open? Is he trying to do a Yong Teck Lee (SAPP) asks a member in the party? It seems that James is either eliminating himself from the equation of going for another term in the State Assembly or he is really pushing his claims for KM3. Anyway James has been in politics since 1983 and for one he has achieved part of his goal as a President of PRS eventhough it is still embroiled in a factional fight. Pushing himself to the next limit is ultimately his aim and his political survival will be determined very soon. Muhyddin has been advised, James you would be soon….
