Reality..? What Wave Will Hit Sarawak..??

Too many theories, too many cooked up”political hear-says”,too many unwanted hands ‘if you know the meaning” involved and mosts of all the rural constituencies of Sarawak will take a battering from PKR are the words from mosts political analysts after being fed with seemingly FACTUAL BUT ONESIDED ACCOUNTS OF THE PEOPLES FEELINGS IN AND AROUND SARAWAK.

Sarawak, is so much unlike the other states in the Peninsular as this state is so vasts and the rural areas are  so isolated and communication is one but many a problem for mosts campaigners. Many have said PKR has made inroads in the rural bastion of BN. What really caught my eye this morning was at breakfast when a Senior member of SUPP branch said,” The people just want to change the colours and its virtually impossible to brainwash them back to BN.” Is he afraid? Yes ,it seems and I could tell from his eyes and his body language.  He even told me to refer to this Malaysiakini article http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97334 where he said briefly “ONE OUTCOME ” and I extracted it out,”  

Such are the political sentiments of Malaysians today.The majority of Malaysians no longer support UMNO because the party is perceived as being arrogant, racist,corrupt and out of touch with the rakyat.If Najib was to calla snap poll after taking power in March,there would likely be only be only ONE OUTCOME.

Even his SUPP President who announces his intention of not being included in the lists of candidates did not make him feel comfortable. Also with audie 61 providing him the consolation that SUPP will include NEW FACES in the lineup did not bring even a glimmer of hope nor a smile to his face. He then pointed to the article in the local tabloid,”PIASAU will be ours in the Next State Polls,says PKR”

What was written was that the branch publicity secretary of PKR has indeed ruffled and up the ante at SUPP’s seemingly Miri bastion. The optimism is based on the party receiving increasing support from the leaders in the national level and there are many other plus factors.”Things seems to be in our favour,and the chances of winning are good.”There are more manpower going down on the field to help and now the PKR is more popular among the people and more are joining as we speak.

So it seems that the “Last Emperor of SUPP” has backdown on the challenges thrown to him? Dr.George feels that new SUPP leaders in Miri will be able to counter the threats of PKR. Many SUPP members have said that George is doing it to keep the party afloat but on the other hand they are some who said he is ‘Abandoning the Fight to protect his Face” Could it be just another camouflage? COMETH THE HOUR,COMETH THE MAN,”The party needs me to go with them into battle” You never know with politicians,do you…?

On July 6th 2008 PRS President Dr.James Masing did mention that in 2006 PRS lost one of the seats contested because of its internal disputes and the unfriendly elements.”Such unfriendly attitude is not healthy especially when exhibited by those who claimed themselves to be members of BN family.” How very true.!! audie61 have time and time played up the issue of HIDDEN HAND involved in BN and Pakatan and the persons do not know where they belong. They are opportunists to the core and they only bring with them their brand of politics of conflict and distrusts.

In local analogy they are call,”THREE HEADED DRAGON IN THE SKY” They think they know it all,done it,seen it BUT they do fail to see ITS DIFFERENT TIMES and NOW we Have more advanced APACHE HELICOPTERS. PRS President James also said this unfriendly BN elements will be hovering around like vultures ready to strike if we show any signs of weakness.

When KU Li wrote which was published also in Malaysiakini  ,”UMNO leadership is part of the problem” it goes beyond that but what he questions are truth and the TRUTH will prevail if answers are not forthcoming.

Simple questions,”Can Umno change? Of course it can. Umno is made up of people and people can change if they really want to. The writing is on the wall, Umno.”The people have spoken, “Change, Umno, or the rakyat will change you.”

Is PKR or DAP in Sarawak pushing the envelopes to the edge for the people to accept? Can the people do it or will they rally behind BN again in their destitute hour of need? It seems its the same old faces coming into play for the opposition parties and the people/voters will vote for practically someone new no matter WHAT  party they belong in the next State elections. Which Wave..? People’s Perception. Believe and Trust me …………….

PKR”Multi Racial Dream Team Lawyers” taking them on..

It’s On.This full http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97323Malaysiakini report in which MP Gobalakrishnan has applied for leave for a judicial review on his entry ban into Sarawak last Christmas Eve. February 6 2009 has been set for the leave application or notice for the judicial review.

According to the Dominique Ng, who is the lawyer handling the case ‘a multi-racial dream team’ of PKR lawyers, including Orang Ulu lawyers Baru Bian and Harrison Ngau, Shankar Ram and himself will handle the case. “More  lawyers  are being sought to join the panel.” 

Ng told Malaysiakini today that the application for judicial review in the Gobalakrishnan v state director of immigration,state attorney-general and the state secretary are being served with the sealed copies of the application for notice for judicial review of the matter.

Our earlier report on December 27th 2008 mentioned that thelocal tabloids even quoted ,”a news portal Malaysiakini played up the issue since Dec 24,the latest being a claim that Sarawak may use its immigration powers to deny entry to more Peninsular Malaysia based politicians,including de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim in the face of what is seen as growing local support for the opposition.

The MP Gobalakrishnan according to political sources have irked the CM Taib and his family as he touched on infrastuctural development particularly that of Kapit and of Hulu Rejang,corruption,oil royalty and NCR(native customary land) in Parliament. Our full report can be read https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/12/27/malaysiakini-report-on-pkr-assemblyman-ban-is-hot-news/

This full episode happened when  Gobalakrishnan was denied entry on Dec 24 at 5.30 pm when he flew into Kuching from Kuala Lumpur on a social visit. He told Malaysiakini that it was politically motivated and intended to take legal action against the authorities concerned.

He related then that the moment he reached the airport, immigration officers told him that he was not allowed to enter due to instructions from the state government.

“The immigration officer gave me a notice which reads ‘Tuan bukan rakyat Sarawak, tidak berhak untuk masuk ke Sarawak tanpa permit atau pas Akta Imigresen 1959-1963’ (You are not a citizen of Sarawak and are not eligible to enter Sarawak without a permit or immigration pass)

So Dominique its now in your hands,”Dream Team.vs the Government Enforcers..hmmm”  Who will come out Tops..??

PKR SARAWAK GAINING,SUPP REINVENTS,PRS CONSOLIDATES

Politicians in Sarawak are back with a bang after the welcoming the year of the Earth OX and celebrating Chinese New Year with their families and loved ones. SUPP  in this malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97259 has indicated it is ready to drop unpopular leaders at the next state elections.Party President Dr.George Chan has earlier announced he is not going to seek re-election to his Piasau state seat.

The partys losses in the last state elections which saw the party losing ground in the Chinese Majority constituencies especially when the partys long serving incumbents in Kuching were soundly defeated is one of the reasons the party needs to look at NEW and FRESH Faces. It needs to RE-INVENT and thus Dr.Chan says that the party needs to stay together and move forward to wrestle back the losts seats.

Meanwhile a former PRS SG Sidi Munan was taken to tasks by Anaklu of audie61 as whether he has joined PKR? “No,no,no Hmmm,he replied.” However he says that BN needs to look closely especially at multi racial parties and use KT by election as a BAROMETER of where the Sarawak voters are going to vote in the next state elections. He said that many who have left PRS for PKR shows that the ones joining are not to be taken lightly. He said he, himself is already the grand old man of Sarawak politics as he is nearing 73 years old and he will not be able to campaign like in his younger days. Is it true that PRS has losts many members close to 17000 as reported in the mainstream media asks Anaklu? Of course, it depends on how the party leadership takes it and they must know how to consolidate themselves. I have done my part as the Founder President of the Party and my work is already done. Just then an sms was received from a reliable source from PKR Sarawak.

The sms received at 11.09am reads,”Bintulu PKR Dinner 21 Feb.2009. Venue: Lot 2026,Sg,Nyigu Industrial Estate formerly site of Heavy Machines Expos in Bintulu.” So work is already gaining momentum for the visit of  Anwar Ibrahim de facto leader of PKR and Sarawak and Sabah state chief. The last dinner function in Kuching was a runaway success which attracted close to 4500 at the sit down dinner while thousands more stood outside in the light drizzle listening to the speeches. It may be 3 weeks to go but all arrangements are progressing as scheduled says the PKR spokesman.

Expect the Sarawak political landscape to heat up in the coming weeks. The political parties in BN Sarawak , PKR and DAP will try to outdo each other and gain popular support with their respective programmes to gain the necessary political mileage to stay close to the PEOPLE/VOTERS in their respective constituencies.

PKR can claim that they have moved inwards to the Rural dayak Bastion of BN Sarawak while DAP will try to penetrate into more urban BN SUPP seats eventhough SUPP goes into reinventing itself.

Facts and Assumptions..Yeah,right..!!

This Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97214 in which it headlines,”Syed Hamid: Don’t see criminals as heroes,cops as demons” will trigger of course a lot of political talk in and around the country. If the countrys number one enforcement department has had learnt its lessons that there are different ways of interrogation techniques Kugan would not today be “DEAD”

Kugan was to many who knew him a WHITE PAPER and never had any brushings with the law. Fair Game,too this time to the Home Minister when he said to bernama,”We will not conceal the facts” as what he said if it is not followed through will come back and haunt him. Of course I will not hide from the facts i.e.”THE BALLOT BOXES” the people  are the masters in this final jigsaw and our honourable minister will know that the BN government is facing its toughest hurdle with low public confidence in BNs administration. 

This next statement extracted from the same article in Malaysiakini,”He said no one was above the law and added that action would be taken against those who broke the law, even if it was the police. Even Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail said that Kugan’s death had been classified as murder.

Here, we do not want to teach the Police or the Home Minister to do their job. They should know what needs and what needs not to be done. They should not be anymore coverups. Imagine when we were young we were told by our elders or fathers,”Police are Good People

Today we are saying ,”They are Good Police and they are Bad Police”. The difference is Police in the Malaysian publics eyes are Police and not People anymore. Though they are as Human as we are but once they enter the Police Service they seem to change. Some change when they are in uniforms and some even use their positions to enpower themselves.

Maybe just a suggestion,”Please look closely at the British Metropolitan police force closely as before the  Riots of 1981 the POLICE  were strongly disliked and seen as largely reactionary and distant.” After it happened,279 police injuries and 45 members of the public were injured; over a hundred vehicles were burned, including 56 police vehicles; almost 150 buildings were damaged, with thirty burned. There were 82 arrests. Reports suggested that up to 5,000 people were involved in the riot.

It was no surprise after the incident a royal commission was estblished and findings,new measures,new attitudes flowed through the police force. The Police were back to be as HUMAN as they come and not as “BAD POLICE.”

 We hope that Kugans death will be a start for the Police force to do a lot of soul searching and we also pray that the Home Ministry will come down firmly on the department which is just under their nose. Something needs to done fast as the public is already losing confidence in the Police administration.People believe in FACTS and not assumptions any more.

 It only takes one more silly mistake or an idiotic act to further tarnish the Police force name and it will take years to “REPAIR”. The damage has been done and now the REAL WORK needs to carried out to get it back on track…..

Just Say This for Bro.Kugan

Todays Malaysiakini report “Will Kugan get the justice he deserves?” and the full text http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97170 in which it said,”‘ This has happened so many times in our country. Why would this case be any different? The life of an average Malaysian has become chillingly cheap.’ 

Yesterday Natasha of audie61 played up the report of Malaysiakini’s http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97164  in which it was mentioned that the Selangor Police Chief Khaid said,” Do not turn Kugan Ananthan’s funeral into a political rally.”

Also to further reinforced her story a telephone call was made to the PRS Indian Bureau Chief Narashima Barathy who clearly said to Natasha,”,”Let’s see WHAT the Police are going to take actions against the ONES who have committed the offenceMURDER” according to the Attorney General”.

audie61 hopes that JUSTICE is done and there should not JUST BE ANYMORE SWEEPING UNDER THE CARPET. IF THERE IS THE BALLOT BOXES WILL HAVE THE FINAL SAY.

AS a mark of respect and to those of other faith audie61 and the crew would like to say this together with other fellow Malaysians.Say it LOUD, Silently or Just in your Heart but READ it for Brother Kugan as if to light a candle.,

Do it when you read this and when everyone prays for his soul the sadness and unhappiness on the family will be lessened.

NO CHAOS PLEASE ON KUGANS FUNERAL PROCESSION

Narashima Barathy, PRS Batu Lintang Indian Bureau Chief when interviewed by Nathasha of audie61 said,”Let’s see WHAT the Police are going to take actions against the ONES who have committed the offenceMURDER” according to the Attorney General”

In this Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97164  the Selangor Police Chief Khaid said,” Do not turn Kugan Ananthan’s funeral into a political rally.”

 He also warned those attending the funeral, scheduled to be held tomorrow afternoon, not to participate in any illegal gathering or carry banners and posters.

Narashima Barathy received also similar SMSes urging “all Malaysians to come for the funeral and give support to Kugan’s family.” We will be asking our immediate families and some PRS members who are holidaying with their families  in the nations capital to make an effort if not just line the street as a mark of respect.

We are very lucky that the law is not taken into their own hands. Riots,Chaos and anti-Police rebellion could have occurred. At least the people have matured considerably. Natasha asked Narashima whether he remembered the Brixton Riots in London in 1981? Yes,he remembers it as he was in his early twenties and it was splashed over in a lot of newspapers. He fears that if  it is not under control it might spark a major unrest. 

What happened then? On the evening of the 10th, at around 17:15, a black youth who had been stabbed in an attack was being helped by a police patrol in Atlantic Road. As he was being helped, a large hostile crowd gathered. As they tried to take him to a waiting car on Railton Road, the crowd intervened. The police were attacked and the struggle only ended when more police officers arrived; the youth was taken to a hospital. The crowd is reported to have believed that the police stopped and questioned the stabbed youth, rather than help him. Rumours spread that the youth had been left to die by the police or that the police looked on as the stabbed youth was lying on the street. Over 200 youths, black and white, reportedly turned on the police.

Narashima then said to Natasha that this also could have turned ugly as it could have been used as a racial issue. Narashima asked us to repost this subject https://audie61.wordpress.com/2008/05/18/ugly-head-fighting-back/

We just hope that all sides will practised tolerance and restrain during this very sad day for the family and not to be overzealous in their actions. audie61 thoughts and prayers are with the family in this very trying times and we will do whatever in our capacities to ensure that justice is done.

UGLY HEAD-FIGHTING BACK…In 1977 when I left for England I thought it was for the better. Education! Rat Race! It’s any young persons dream of acquiring the necessary knowledge and thus putting him in a better commanding position for job prospects. Unknowingly I stepped into the world of education at the worst of times in the United Kingdom. Why…?

The influx of ten of thousands of Asian immigrants and the Pursuit of Higher Education were mainly by Asian and Middle Eastern origins. It was also a time when there was deep depression and jobs were hard to come by. Council housing areas were breeding grounds for hate,racist overtones and Asian bashing movements. I was among the very few of Asian students about 10 of us from different countries in a school of around 800 co-ed students. Sure I was called different names i.e. Chinky! Prawn Balls! Slit eyesYellow Skin!  Wild man of Borneo! and to top it up there is usually a flavouring like Chinky..Go Home or Wild man of Borneo..Go back to your jungle.

Little did i know this was also racial education for me. It is only fair as they were protecting their territorial rights i.e. their highly acclaimed education system. As a matter of fact i thought at that time they have colonised us and why can’t we as servants come to the house of our masters to learn? If that is so simple they would not be any racist feelings anywhere in the world. I also had first hand experience on the Guildford, Brixton,Greater Manchester riots of the 80’s where the whole Paki-Bashing and Whites rule was at its peak.Sad but after experiencing all this happenings the people of UK have become “More Tolerant.” Even Her Majesty’s Metropoliton Police Force was transformed to being more “People Friendly” and it was an really an eye-opener for British politicians and Law-makers. 

8 years (1977-1985) of living in a world of uncertainty and having the privilege to stay together with an Englishmen,Welsh,Irish,Jew, Black Muslim and Scottish in the same house for 3 years does help me in tackling this ugly head we call “Racism.”

Former Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Dr.Mahathir put it nicely,” one should be loyal to the religion, the race and the country.” If you want to read more http://themalaysianinsider.com/there are so much racial undertones in his recent address at a gathering where  he warned that they ‘Malays” stood to lose much in the new political environment where the non-Malays were unafraid to make demands. He continued by saying that if they choose to keep quiet,don’t speak up,other races will take over.

Ugly Head“. I don’t think so at this instance as when a former MP Jawah Gerang(Lubok Antu) told me specifically If I don’t speak for the Ibans in my constituency  who would? I cannot speak for the Indians as there are none. So of course when I go to Parliament I speak for  my people. It’s call to me, fighting back for the people who put him there and he was a 5 term Member of Parliament. Whoever and whatever anyone calls him I have the greatest respect for this former MP for he has served his term and electorate well.

A former Gerakan Wanita Chief Datuk Rhina Bhar cited racial Lines in the party for her quitting Gerakan. I was quite taken aback and I called one of the leaders of Gerakan up in Penang and he said’ She has served her bests and she is past her bests”. Obviously some grassroots leaders in Gerakan and MCA has voiced their concerns over their disastrous showing in the march 2008 elections and they are quick to point out that both these parties are Chinese-based Parties.

The concept of Gerakan is multi-racial but the majority is still Chinese. It goes without saying Parti Rakayat Sarawak which was in the headlines for too long and  for many reasons is predominantly an Iban based party. An elected Sarawak Assemblymen once commented ,”The party might have the concept of multi-racial but it is the majority that rules” and this is very true of SPDP,SUPP and PRS Parties in Sarawak. The people’s interest comes first and that is what they need to do to be retained as elected representatives in the coming terms. Sometimes the parties takes the racial lines and we know its for that particular instance and time only.

Racism is not only calling names or marginalisation but it goes beyond that. My better half did comment to me that sometimes subconciously we forget that we are really ‘racist”. It only needs to be checked and tolerated. The more our younger people are given the oppurtunities to study abroad,live and experience it in a foreign country the less the ugly head will emerge. Our system provides us with the avenues to fight back and we must always believe that we were created as no better than the person standing next to us. 

To me racial lines,racial overtones,also racial “spat“ and practically a “fist in your face to prove your racial superiority” is a way back in time and the fight back for everyone has just begun.

LET US DRIVE HATE OUT OF OUR SYSTEMS COMPLETELY

Defections..Najib Crossovers..Anwar..

When news of defection hit the internet blogs the sms received flooded in with “Hidup Pakatan Rakyat”. No more defections to Pakatan Rakyat! This Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/97153 “This was the bold pronouncement made by Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak today following the decision by Umno’s Bota state representative to join Pakatan yesterday.

In another Malaysiakini report Perak MB told Najib not to be too sure. The PAS leader said that three more Barisan Nasional assemblymen were expected to join Pakatan.  He added that discussions with the three assemblymen were ongoing and Pakatan was working at bringing them into its fold.”We did not invite them to join us but they came to see us. We are holding discussions.

The DPM afterall did make his stand clearly,””These are all rumours… I don’t think so.” After the 916 debacle here lies another concept engineered of every two weeks there will be BN legislators crossing over to Pakatan. Pakatan has managed to lure a serving assemblyman to crossover for once. The previous movements involves all the ex-MP or Ex Aduns which doesnt present much threat or even bothered the BN government. 

Wow! What makes it more great for Anwar to say is ,”“Now the Ox has come in, just be patient… we are working hard just like the ox.” What is more important is the political underlining in which the deal has been brokered. Seems Anwar has friends everyway now and Nasaruddin Hashim,Bota Assemblyman is Anwar’s old campus mate.  The HIDDEN HAND that reached out to Nasaruddin must have closed the deal with a few cards left in the pack.

Najib even said this to quell the movements of Anwars Pakatan machinery,”It is not right to abandon the party because of personal problems or dissatisfactions at a time when the party needs our support.” 

Of course ,Anwar would love to turn round and say,”Your strategists and your political boys are not working hard enough?” audie61 have said time and time again BN needs to wake up or else all of you within the BN family will no longer be in your comfort zones. The threat is real and everyone has a price and its all ABOUT TIMING TO CROSSOVER.

Do I need to say more..? If our reports earlier on this subjects of crossover,frogs,political realignment does not make BN feel the cancerous cells fast spreading then it would not be too long before we see the Final battle of Pakatan and BN. Winners will stay afloat while losers will disintegrate and need to reform or be EVAPORATED.
