The crowds as shown in major TV channels covering the inauguration of Barack Obama were enthusiastic and the chanting,”Yes we can,Yes we can” Malaysiakini has this report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/96799
However what is more pressing is this sms,”What is the ground in Sarawak speaking after BN’s losses in PP and KT.?” Is it ‘Changing towards the Opposition?”
I replied in my sms as per in todays tabloids,” CM Taib said that BN is still popular despite the defeats.” DCM George Chan meanwhile said the most effective way to regain the peoples confidence was to win the voters hearts and minds.’ But the people on the ground are really frustrated with the prices of essential goods and commodities which are still extremely high eventhough the oil prices have been reduced.
The CNY celebrations in Sarawak are somehow subdued and it shows that sarawakians are also affected like the rests of the country and the world which is economic crisis of the worse proportions. Of course some of the people are looking at the opposition for CHANGE and if you can kindly please read our earlier writeups and reports on June 7th and May 1st 2008.
In todays report in Malaysiakini too in which we extract here Najib said,”Barisan Nasional leaders have been warned not to remain oblivious to the wishes of the people who want to see actual changes taking place.In line with that, it is time for the BN leaders to break out of their comfort zones and re-orientate their approach to be constantly in tune with the people’s aspiration.
audie 61 on May 1st 2008 touched too on these,” The youths in our beloved country Malaysia want their independence and their very rights to choose a government where their comfort zones are not jeorpadised.”
Its a clear signal to the BN adminsitration that there should not be any stones left unturned if there want to CHANGE. This is really serious by the DPM who is also the PM in waiting,” “If we fail to deal with these challenges effectively, punishment awaits us in the 13th general election,”
The incoming premier also said that BN was always responsive to changes and new ways of doing things.
People reject rhetoric
“We are aware that in a democratic system, the people are the ultimate determiner of which party should form the government,” he said.He added that BN was in need of able leaders who were knowledgeable in the fields entrusted to them to implement all the needed reforms.
“The Malaysian people are matured enough to gauge their leaders. They are no longer impressed with the rhetoric of changes which are nothing but plain rhetoric.”They want results. They want to see actual changes taking place,” he said.
Najib is quick to also get on the gravy laden train with CHANGE as the menu mostly eaten by everyone. Infightings,corruption,money and power threats are no more acceptable in the menu for the voters/people. I do find this article in ‘Just Change for Malaysia” which is indeed refreshing and BN and Pakatan can learn a thing or two from this blog. Though the blogger is a life member of DAP BUT he is also a social and political analyst which makes it interesting.
We have all equip ourselves with Sun Tzu’s Art of War but now we have to turn our focus on WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE SAYING TO US IN MALAYSIA. It’s simple and BN and Pakatan Ybs and MPs needs to deliberate issues and come up with ideas and ways to revamp the Malaysian economy. The future generations needs the legislators to chart Malaysia’s path to greatness both internationally and domestically. Its Time for the Pressing Issues to be addressed and CHANGES will ultimatedly fall into place. Both sets of Pakatan and BN legislators stand at the verge of something great which the PEOPLE are the MASTERS.
Simple,” CHANGE OR BE READY TO BE SHIPPED OUT“
