An emeritus professor said it’s all a Circus. I could not agree more as he says “Politicians are all businessman in their own right. If you have brushed your teeth for the last 50 years with “Colgate” suddenly “Darlie” which serves the same purpose is introduced please don’t tell me “ITS POISONOUS” THINK and REASON he says. Its absolutely correct, as he turned his focus to the interview in the Malaysiakini TV and report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/93136 what Chong said holds some weight,” Stressing that 27 years is “too long a time” to be chief minister, Chong states the obvious – it’s time for Taib to pack his bags and go. “Things that have not materialised (and) we should leave it to another person to implement,” But on the other hand we would argue,”if its not broken don’t fix it.” Some would say,”What If..??”
All this political ‘Hoo-hahs” especially the 12000 new members joining PKR is just another “QUICK FIX” Many in the BN circle s are saying are you sure that there are all for REAL..? One would also argue to the point that STATISTICS,NUMBERS,FACTS don’t lie. Let’s be honest about it,” The people who are joining are all trying to serve a ‘NEW POLITICAL MASTER’ Businessman these politicians as those who were captured by the International times Chinese tabloids amongst them is still a serving BN councillor. Has he resigned before taking the plunge? Aren’t they Chairmans or deputy chairmans of PRS who happens to be a coalition of BN.? Are all the members who join and handed in their forms WILLING PARTNERS to join PKR? Here,here this is the SAD PART,HIDING BEHIND as we parted ways.
It is of course the condition of the mind when we join political parties. We have to explain to the people and not just join for the sake of being a member. Those within the PKR framework are painting a sketchy picture but on the other hand I say they “WELCOME WITH OPEN ARMS.” There must be CHANGES we know and the new masters though sincerely are the “PEOPLE”.
In Sarawak, the cries of enough of ‘EN-enslavement and EN-riching” through amassing vast tracts of land,timber,natural resources and others have made the “People” not only of the ethnic origin stand up and be counted. The band wagon suddenly has LIMITED SPACE. Previously the BN can go through any elections without much hassle but now it will be not so easy this time round. Now the people are using more muscles in their body and they are not as predictable as before. They say if we do not use certain parts of our brain they will entropy,i.e. they lose their ability to function due to the lack of use. PKR is like a new “Breadth of Fresh Air” to “most”Sarawakians.
Why I say ‘most’ is because most BN YBs are still in a “State of Denial” There is a CHANGE in the way the peoplea re thinking. Thirty years ago, did you see any Protests by any groups of people? Correct, me if I’m wrong MAJU Group-Permas/PBDS was twenty years ago. Why the sudden surge of sentiments and why? If I was to reveal all here I would be out of job/consultancy business. hahaha.
Reality check,’This tag word,” Making your Life Richer ” “Bringing the world to your Door step’. Gone are the days politics is just about keeping it to the political parties. They should be independant consultancy firms who are willing to say to the component parties,” I’ll win the elctions for you” .There are so many surveys,poll figures,age group etc.etc and this are all INDEPENDENTLY AND ELECTRONICALLY PROGRAMME. It’s a Business this Politics and long gone are the days that POLITICIANS can just say ‘MY constituency cannot be touched.” Believe me IT’s REAL and whether you are from the BN or Pakatan its no more the norm of just serving and be seen with your constituency. The days of roads,electricity,piped water,clinics,jetties,community halls etc. and all the ELECTION PROMISES are just words and rhetoric terms of YESTERYEARS.
How do you stop CHANGE? Don’t tell me when the tsunami and the flood waters comes you can just build a WALL to STOP IT. “I don’t think that the ‘tsunami’ will come to Sarawak. But you can never tell.” There are many different school of thoughts for changes in Sarawak come the next state elections BUT it all depends on WHO you are speaking too. Do I need to define that,or go further and politically analyse that ..? Mind conditioning of people is WHAT THEY CAN ONLY SEE AND NOT JUST BRAIN WASHED OR I SHOULD SAY,”I WILL FOLLOW YOU.”
The rural areas,long considered the safe seats of BN government is under attack too. There are too much COMPLACENCY,DENIALS,and ALSO WITH THIS NOTHING WILL HAPPEN ATTITUDE. This is also an achilles heel of the state BN YBs. The CM cannot be their WATCHDOG and GUARD IT FOR THEM all the time. They need to WAKE UP and BUCKLE UP OR BE PREPARED TO BE SHIPPED OUT. Same will go to those from DAP and Keadilan. Don’t think they are safe too as the VOTERS KNOW WHO THEY WANT AND NOT WHAT THE POLITICAL PARTY WANTS.
Something different needs to be done and of course if BN is still in THINKING MODE they will surely kiss goodbye to running the state adminsitration. The people will use examples like New Zealand,Thailand, Australia where a CHANGE of governement does not mean the ordinary folks will lose their homes and daily living. Life goes on. The only fight now is the PERCEPTION oF THE MIND. Its a Paradigm shift of mindset and the issue is very simple in Sarawak says a political graduate majoring in social sciences.
We know that in Politics,no one wants to come down from power. This is obviously the question as to when the CM Taib decides to call it a day. Taib became chief minister of Sarawak in 1981 – the same year Dr Mahathir Mohamad became prime minister. He took over from his maternal uncle Abdul Rahman Yaakub who assumed the post of the Sarawak governor for a term. Nobody would deny him the fact that it is actually his call and to me he will argue,”WHY should I retire..?” He has learnt even from Tun Mahathir Mohamad and how the former PM has suffered and even join in the blogworld to make his thoughts heard. Is there any reason for him to CALL IT A DAY.
CM also knows eventually he needs to step down.Let’s be honest too, that eventually UMNO will take over the role of PBB. PKR is afterall a national party and UMNO would not just wait and see that PKR is making inroads in Sarawak. Nobody can hide from his political alliances and one cannot put on another shirt on top and just change. The people on the ground knows WHO and WHAT you are. It’s the PEOPLES WORLD my friends and the VOTERS today will know WHO FITS THE BILL to REPRESENT THEM. THERE is no more hiding in this BORDERLESS WORLD. Politics will not be NORMAL NO MORE………..
