KURUP “RAINED DOWN” ~ Malaysiakini

Malaysiakini reports http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/89257  headlines: Kurup’s Pensiangan seat declared vacant. It’s 1 less 29 to go and many PKR members are rubbing their hands with glee. Shouts of Keadilan echoed through the High Courts in Kota Kinabalu. Has it rained down on Kurup and BN..? Cindy said from KK we will have the latest updates later and we will cover the by elections if there is one.
Meanwhile Bugi Wijaya filed this report in. The weatherman in his warning of strong winds and rain in Penang, Kedah, Perlis and Perak forgo about Sabah.  In the Sunday late evening at the township of Foh Sang Luyang, Kota Kinabalu, it was pouring rain! The annual SAPP’s Foh Sang Mid Autumn Festival was heading for a washout.  Who would turn up for a washout event? 
 
“This must be a sign of things to come from Heaven”, I overheard an onlooker exclaiming to his friend.  Yes, it was a sign of thiing to come.  As the more and more people came and took shether on the “kaki lima”, those with umbrellas braved the rain.  No, the event was not a washout even as SAPP President Datuk Seri Yong Teck Lee arrive with his umbrella.  The festival were not a washout after all.
 
(SAPP is the only political party which celebrate different cultural festivals and among the various cultural celebrations organised are Hari Raya Aidilfitri Open House, Pesta Kaamatan, Chinese New Year, Mid Autumn (Moon Cake) Festival, Chinese Glutinous Rice Festival, Christmas Open House.  They had even had Deepavali Open House at one time)
 
This reminds us of the historical date 18 June 2008 where a small party in Barisan Nasional (BN), SAPP announced their loss in confidence in the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.  SAPP move was condemned by all component parties of BN with some immediately calling for SAPP to be sacked.  Those who are in the right government positions were the ones that was the most vicious with some calling SAPP a political bitch.
 
At that time, everyone had said SAPP by being the thorn in PM flesh, had done the wrong thing and the timing was not right.  With only 2 MPs and 4 ADUNs, how could a mosquito party do any harm to the STRONG and MIGHTY BN?
 
Its like the rain today, who would come to the Mid Autumn Festival celebrations in Foh Sang, the heartland of SAPP HQ?  But despite the rain, a huge crowd turn out.  Whether they support SAPP or just spectators for the show, it does’nt matter.  It shows that the people will turn up when they have the interest, rain or shine.
 
Like in the current political scenario, we are beginning to hear grouses from other component parties.  UPKO were the early bird to support SAPP but it was a real shocker that even in MCA and Gerakan we have heard ‘hints’ of them reviewing their position in BN.  Looks like MCA and Gerakan will have to defend SAPP when the BN meets on Tuesday to deliberate their fate. 
 
So back to the question again. Will 916 ‘jadi’? 
 
Yong’s reply is that Anwar’s 916 is not a simple matter.  This has been asked to him by a lot of people in the street.  He believes the incumbent government in their desperation to protect their vested interests and individuals, will try to cling on to power using whatever means.  The excitement is there but it is not a simple matter.
 
Yong also added that the window of opportunity for Sabah has closed.  The PM budget 2009 has completely ignored the 8 points raised by SAPP.
 
In May this year, Yong had said,

If nothing happens, we (Sabah) will either return to our status-quo of being subservient or, it will explode i.e. some other forces including the opposition may come into play and things may no longer be within our control anymore.”The problem with the national media is that they are only interested in the cross-over as it affects . They should instead look at the issues affecting Sabah and its people.” 

For those who had voted for the BN and am now disappointed,  you will have to wait for the next GE 13.  Don’t blame the government because you elected them, just live with it.  For those who brag that the opposition should go through the ballot box to seize power, would you dare call for an election now and face the people?

Either way, 916 is getting nearer.  Have you book your ticket for the Malaysia Boleh Land show?  Hopefully there will be no last minute protest bu certain party and cancellation of the permit by the relevant authority to the Malaysia Boleh land show!!!!

 Happy Malaysia Day in Advance!

“UP FOR ADOPTION…?” ~ Malaysiakini

It was late morning when I bumped into Violet Yong (DAP ADUN for Pending) and she asked me,”True kah 6 PRS MPs so intact.” Cheekily hmm, I said with no malice,” We are not going to Hornbill to DAP “. However my conversation was cut short but I managed to talk about the ‘Serious Jam” with the Mambong to Pending a journey of Approximately 24km which during the day takes 1hour or more and when if it is completed will take only 20 minutes. ( This is part of her constituency N10 Pending)

Just then a sms came that 500 Sarawak natives has joined PKR. Its in the report by Tony Thien Malaysiakini Sarawak correspondent http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/89282 . Has PKR made inroads even into the interiors of Sarawak..? No wonder a political strategists told me,” They have taken a leaf out of James Masing’s earlier statement which says the rural areas are the “Bastion of BN.” So, they have made their move and like what Anwar had said his Generals and Lieutenants are following orders. Onwards…!! March to Putra Jaya.Soldiers and second echelon leaders first from all BN component parties before the main calvary moves in.

 Familiar don’t you think..? Is BN just going to watch it happen or has 916 changed to 1016 or 1116 or 1216. It does make sense as when you add the numbers 1016=8 1116=9 1216=10. But BN will have the last laugh as 8+9+10=27  2+7=9 . “What is 9..? Its “Forever or Dog’  which is “FOREVER.B..L S..T ”

Sorry if 916 fails Pakatan members, BN will make the next wave not you. Just wait and see.Anyone up for adoption next is the question but the moves are on the way to wrestle Sarawak 2011. Do you see where Im bringing you on the journey. Dont say to me please its,” DOG S..T…!!” Below is the after shock of Permatang Pauh which I wrote earlier,”Sarawak Wave 2006, Tsunami 2008 and After Shock 2011″

This is an excerpt of the report filed ,”Frankie Bedindang, Hulu Rajang PKR division chief and a former Kapit district head from the Sarawak National Party (Snap), told Malaysiakini the first batch of 500 submitted their membership forms to him at a ceremony in Bintulu today. Good for you all them and we were told that the natives have pinned their hopes on Pakatan to protect them and that they have given up hope on BN.

Has the ground swirled and made the State leaders and administration jump from their seats.? Are they still sitting in their comfortable air conditioned office waiting for “someone” meaning the “people” to remove them. Its time these leaders adopt the simple political theory they attack,we defend but we REINFORCE and call in the firepower and artillery. Do I need to say further.?

I wanted to tell DAP they won in Bandar Kuching constituencies not because of SUPP is irrelevant but because DAP was riding on the sentiments of the people for change. If SUPP reinvents,remodel and RECHARGE THEIR BATTERIES they will be able to win back “lost causes” but if they remain what they are they are its a wiped out headlines for them come 2011. Don’t say no,no,no..Even a PRS member can say multiracial parties will have a say in Bandar too and why not swap constituencies to win back lost “battlegrounds”. I will say to this True,true,true…. as DAP has never tasted the battle with “PRS or SPDP”. 

A Divisional Deputy Chairman of PRS says that it’s very true that “when the soup does not taste nice anymore, we have to change.” It’s only the correct thing to do and BN has 4 component parties and not everytime its the same faces. A wanita chief said change the ” MENU”. These are leaders who are all below 35 and they know their battlegrounds very well.

BN should just reconsider this equation or are they in the process of doing it…? Don’t be too late as it will be detrimental to the parties concerned and hurt their CHANCES. Imagine Violet from DAP against Winnie of PRS (imaginary) or Yvonne SPDP (imaginary)- These ladies have no skeletons and are not known by the general public. Good fight.. I assure you it will be a very close fight..You can bet your last dollar on it.

As for another adoption it seems that PRS divisions have made their moves for “Homecoming” which was even published by Borneo Posts. I received so many calls and one in particular,” If they don’t want you we will have you.” Huh! you.. what ..Are we going for Sale like our MPs..? Even our adopted father seems to have disowned us PRS divisional members mentioned to me. Is it a political game again waiting for September 14th when the 29th Supreme Council meeting is going to be held at Green Heights headquarters.?  First our party says that we have to reapply as all Form 9 submitted is not applicable. Secondly the SG in question is also not recognised..Hmmm 

 I have said again and again that during “WAR TIME” where are the “COURTS..?” HELLOooo…WAKE UP everyone and are you all sacrificing the party so that PAKATAN group will reap the benefits. So much for party disciplinary committees to issue each other so called “LOVE LETTERS“. There are so many qualified,young and highly intellectual with good political “BRAINS” within the group and if DAP,PKR approaches with solid “VISION and AGENDA” I cannot see this group staying.

I was online with the Chief Political Secretary to the CM and I said to him I have “Exhaust all Avenues” to try and keep them in check as there are no such thing as LOYALTY left. I am not even a board member of a GLC nor a councillor nor a political secretary. If I am not even given a chance what about them..? Who am I to tell them..? Always the same story, don’t you think that we will look after you later. Soon it will be too late as the window of oppurtunity closes for another WINTER of Discontent.

PKR and DAP will surely capitalise on infighting and this has been the scourge of all BN parties. Too much ego,proudness and stubborness and very little compromise in the end the second echelon leaders will look for greener pastures. These words said again,” We need to change first before we change others.”

 A lady secretary working in a hotel my excollegue said to me,”Audie I can’t work with you,you look snobbish but I told her YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. I can’t change the way I look but I can change the way I do things. Then she said,true and you are a fighter that I know. You always fight for your staff and they remain very true to you. How do you do that..? Perception in MALAYSIABOLEHLAND is everything and I will for one not give up my HEART and SOUL just for adoption for a little LIU-TY’ “MONEY LOYALTY” My agenda is simple,”We adopt what is good and throw the RUBBISH OUT”…………Are you up for it..?
