Wow!! Sir Alex “A Bully” and PBB A”Bully” ~ ref malaysiakini

It was a chance reading when I came across an article which had Sir Alex Ferguson the Manchester United Supremo talking about “Bullying’ in prayers and secrets. The other headline news is of course the Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/91979 More cases of bullying by PBB  in which “The Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) is abuzz like a hornet’s nest that has been disturbed, following an accusation that Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) has been ‘bullying’ component parties.

Another claim or is it that someone is cashing on to get the MUCH NEEDED PUBLICITY? The groundswell is of course to get on the “GRAVY LADEN TRAIN” and get on BN’s back and to get more support for Pakatan. Are we seeing Masing and Sng putting differences aside and teaming up again.? POLITICS ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. We can now see two information chiefs from both camps pushing the BOOT IN at PBB. One is Beginda Minda from Balleh which is James Masings own division while Nanta Chaku is from Simanggang which is a former MP Jimmy Donalds division. Its very provocative says the Chief Political Secretary to the CM YB Karim Hamzah and he is monitoring the situation very closely.

Nanta said: “To support Beginda Minda’s contention… three other examples come to mind immediately:

1. Since 1981 other component parties in the Sarawak BN have been required to send two to three names of candidates for each constituency held by them, for the PBB leadership to pick the ones to contest. In other words, the final selection is subject to PBB’s decision.
2. A certain high-ranking Iban personage in PBB who fancies himself as the paramount chief of the (community) always insists on appointing his favourites as Penghulus, Pemancha and Temenggong (even) where PBB does not have elected (representatives).
3. In the contest for top posts in component parties, the election is dependent on close (connections between) the candidates (and) the PBB leadership. In other words, candidates perceived to be supported by the PBB leadership always seems to win. Social and economic issues doesn’t seem to matter, but closeness to the PBB leadership does.”

Another BN YB says what the HELL is happening? How come PRS members are coming out in the open.? Is the HIDDEN HAND PUSHING HIS LUCK..? Is the agenda more than just pushing the blame to James Masing.? Could it be just like what i came across on Sir Alex Fergusons ‘Bullying”. It has been said that Ferguson doesn’t open up to the media much these days. Why should he be..?

One of the accusations that has been levelled at the United manager in the past is that he is a bully. So is he? “Absolutely not,” Ferguson says. “I did look up ‘bully’ in the dictionary once. And as I remember, it said a bully is somebody who preys on the weak — where weak is defined as somebody weaker than they (the bully) are.”If you look at some of the people I have stood up to over the years, as a manager — and I have had dust-ups with all sorts of people in that dressing-room — generally speaking they are much, much bigger than me. There is nothing bullying about that.”

Sir Alex has build a solid foundation in Manchester United. He says the older he gets, the more frightened he is of retiring. But there will come a time when he has to clear his desk and someone else will take over.” It seems that most of PBB grievances are taken out at Taib and his uncle Tun Rahman now. The bitter pill was the coming together of the two men which caught many by surprise and it was not even in the script. Of course it has been planned and the Sandiwara is for the Dynasty to go on. Pakatan will obviously capitalise on this and they will politicize the issues on hand to their advantage.  The following statement by Nanta will add to BN’s woes.

Nanta also said ‘big boys’ in Sarawak BN deny ‘small boys’ any say in the final selection of candidates, whether for a general election, appointment of community chiefs or party  leaders.Since this is subject to final approval by PBB leaders, it  makes a mockery of the original concept of the BN power-sharing concept in Sarawak, he said.“It is perhaps more accurate to say that PBB is not only all too  dominant but also domineering in attitude vis-a-vis smaller component parties.”

Bully or not there needs to be a STOP somewhere. Some solutions will obviously be found and it is up to BN not to be held up as a HOSTAGE in this political climate. Pakatan will find ways to up the ante and arouse the sentiments of the people in the NEED FOR A CHANGE to wrestle the State from BN. What a BULLY WEEK it has been……………..

PRS Masings “GAG” order

The local tabloids have taken up the story of PRS:UMNO is a bully and so is PBB which appeared on Saturday 25th of October  with the full text at http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/91917 . In the full email version Beginda Minda did not minced his words and it seems that there was a “HIDDEN HAND” behind all these. Why Provoke a situation and its the same like the recent spat between the German  Millionaire Footballers of Ballack,Kuranyi,Frings against the German National Coach Joachim Loew. There are INDEED certain rules to follow and if you are part of the coalition whether it is BN or Pakatan it must be adhered to.

This phrase,”how can you chop off the hand that feeds you.?” takes a significant meaning. Beginda Head of publicity is from the Balleh Division,Kapit Sarawak (N56) Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) has described Umno at the federal level and Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) in Sarawak as ‘too dominant’ and indeed are ‘bullies’ in their dealings with smaller component parties in the Barisan Nasional.

The spin miesters in and around Sarawak are saying that James is having a fall-out with Taib. Word on the ground is that he has even directed and was instrumental in asking Beginda to do it. Moreover he was being pitted to be the next “Ketua Menteri Sarawak” as Pakatan will wrestle the State from BN. Who else will be the IBAN leader who fits all the criteria to lead Sarawak? James and nobody else of course says a political analyst.

These are the POLITICAL ASSASINATION METHODS being deployed to check the threat James has on Taib. A point of CLARIFICATION here is needed as we say,”IT IS ABSOLUTELY RUBBISH AS JAMES IS BEING MADE THE SCAPEGOAT” “TRUTH BE TOLD” Before we go further this is what transpired between Beginda and audie 61.The telephone call made to Beginda on the day of question says it all,”I asked are you doing it on your own capacity. He said yes,yes yes. On another note WHO IS BEHIND IT.? Did Datuk Sri James ask you to do it? No,no,no this is the truth he said. WHY you do it? Thats the truth and I got nothing to hide. Anyway I am doing this willingly. Of course later,all HELL BROKE LOOSE.

It’s pure jealousy as PRS is united now and there are certain quarters trying to SCORE POINTS on the board says a PRS Political secretary. Even PBB secretary general Dr.Stephan Rundi Utom has said that PBB’s allegation that it has bullied PRS is baseless. He said that he has even met James Masing to clarify the matter on the criticisms made by PRS Balleh publicity chief. audie 61 made a telephone call to Dr Stephan this morning and he says that the “MATTER” has been sorted out. Rundi also mentioned that the provocative statement which appeared in Malaysiakini has been subsequently been played up by a lot of blogs. He reiterate the need to be,” exercise care and wisdom when making public statement.”

According to the tabloids it is learnt that James is planning to place a ‘GAG ORDER” on all members to prevent them from making statements which could jeopardise the party as well as straining its ties with BN.”In relation to what has been said in a blog(Malaysiakini) on Beginda’s statement Masing said,” We will investigate it and if we find that it is personal then we have to tell him off and also advise him not to do it.” although it is personal,it is still regrettable that he had made such statement.” This Statement is also not the STAND OF THE PARTY.

We say,whatever the spin miesters has concocted a cocktail for Parti Rakyat Sarawak to DRINK it smells too disgustingly stinky we say, worse than a SKUNK ODOR to even contemplating of lifting it near our nostrils. 

The reality of all this “GAG ORDER” is who is THAT HIDDEN HAND behind this…? The State BN Supreme Council would be in a better position to ACT ON IT instead of sweeping it under the carpet after they have made a thorough investigation. When Awang Tengah said this,” Voices of the opposition about forming a new government could still be heard despite the landslide victory of the State BN during the last March 8th elections. The tide and the after shock of March 8th will be felt but it is up to both BN and Pakatan to capitalize and seize the moment. A political lecturer said Beginda has just “OPEN THAT CAN
