DAP Says THANKS for the Acknowledment Jabu

Todays  popular Sarawak english tabloids unusually covered more of the opposition and with it there were more speculations and gossips. Surely,one would question what are they up to.? It was all credible news today and it will really open avenues for more tastier political reports as the state will be facing the byelections in N29 Batang Ai. 

Amongst the headlines were:-

  • Opposition may face tough time in picking Batang Ai candidate
  • BN not afraid of the opposition in Batang Ai,says Noroden
  • Sri Aman will reject PKR:Jabu
  • Stay out of Sarawak,Anwar told
  • PBB still the people’s choice:Bukit kota rep
  • Misconduct can mar country’s image,politicians warn
  • Politicians not being impartial:Chong 

It is no wonder then that Anwar immediatedly as he has been well informed that in his message to his party chiefs as both these Malaysiakini reports which interestinglly he mentioned ,” But this is not only Sarawak’s issue, but a national issue,” he said, promising that land problems will feature prominently in the coming Batang Ai campaign.

One of the features which has really started the basis of this article was the one which featured Jabu. An ex PBDS Supreme Council member who now is a PKR member said,”Please asks Jabu to check whether there are two brothers in both BN-PBB and Pakatan-PKR . How can he just simply make such a statement? Isn’t he just slapping his own face..?

Audie 61 made a phone call to the Leon Jimmy (protem Chairman for DAP Sri Aman) and ex PRS youth chief  aligned to YB Larry Sng who immediatedly said,” Thank you Jabu for acknowledging our presence.”Do I need to say more..? ”

This is what appeared in todays tabloids,”DCM Jabu said yesterday that Parti Keadilan Rakyat(PKR) will not be welcomed by the people in Sri Aman.”How could they be welcomed when the leader of PKR Sri Aman is not even in the same wavelength with his family members.”

These two,who are family members,do not believe in each other yet they believe that they are fighting for the people’s right.I can’t see how they are fighting for the people’s right.I can’t see how they can command the support of others when they are not supporting each other.

The ex MP Jimmy drew more criticisms from Jabu when he was said,”Instead of working for the people improve their lot the former MPbrought PKR here to instigate constituents.He brought PKR here to instigate people to fight against and defame BN which he once served.” 

Leon must be smiling as he had an ally in Anwar who not only took the words literally out of his mouth. In Anwars speech covered by Malaysiakini portal where he spoke to party’s parliamentarians, state assemblypersons and division leaders from throughout the country he mentioned,”Ketuanan Rakyat”

“The message of Ketuanan Rakyat is our message to the people. It should inspire them and strengthen their belief in a brighter future.“By our example they should be compelled to be active in their communities, to register to vote, to become members of our party and to motivate their family and friends to join Keadilan as well.”

So DAP Leon must also thanked Anwar for the these statement. One wonders the cooperation between DAP and Keadilan would be further strengthen with what Jabu has said.

We say as always,” There will be more political skirmishes in Sarawak as the by elections and the battle of Batang Ai intensifies.

PKR Sarawak War Cry”Agi Idup Agi Ngelaban”

agi-idup2

The enthusiasm in PKR’s Cobbold John’s voice when he spoke to audie61 was one which reflected an overall winner. He took time to speak to us at 15.56pm eventhough he was attending the PKR seminar at the Quality Hotel in Shah Alam.

He hoped that Malaysiakini or other internet portals plus the other government main stream media will pick this PKR SARAWAK WARCRY”  up. It draws us back to the time when the Sarawak football team was at its peak and this war cry,”AGI IDUP AGI NGELABAN” drove fear amongst the peninsular based footballers when they step into the cauldron of fire that is the Sarawak State Stadium.  

Even the symbol blackcat with its claws which Sarawak adopted look very menacing and the foreign footballers were intimidated. The people then was even coming into the stadium for the games as early as 3pm eventhough the game starts at 7.45pm. Can this warcry start something similar for PKR?

Will they be able to conjur up the same spirit in politics like their football counterparts..? Isn’t this the same as the awakening of Dayaks in a reversal manner? So now PKR Sarawak Keadilanism is picking up another notch with,”AGI IDUP AGI NGELABAN” (as long as we still live we fight)

Cobbold summed up by saying to us,”the top PKR leadership has approved and adopted the warcry and this is in view of Sarawak’s quest to capture the state from BN” 

We say as always,” Wonder PKR Sarawak will use this warcry in the upcoming by-elections N29 Batang Ai..?We shall have to see wouldn’t we? Is BN afraid .??.

“Stop Political Bickering..Oh Yea..!!”

audie61 has over the last eight months been preaching on the need for both sides to face reality.”The GE 308 is long gone and lets get down to run the country.BN the government without 2/3majority and Pakatan as the opposition” STOP POLITICAL BICKERING AN GET ON WITH IT..WITH WHAT..??

Of course, all the elected representatives have taken their oath of office and are given the mandate by the people to serve as their representative and voice out the concerns in their constituencies. To those who have been given the tasks to run the country or state they have just got to get on with it.

We dont need a prophet of doom to tell us that the world crisis of unemployment,falling markets and with that crime figures will be increasing and it will affect Malaysia. It’s right at Malaysia’s door step and this was also discussed after we attended the late YB Dublins funeral before we went our separate ways.

The conversation included an emeritus professor and a number of journalists from the Eastern Times,Borneo Posts and Sin Chew. Crime rates has indeed sky rocketed and whats more the Malaysian political scene is laughable and a joke as comparable to other countries. Will this unhealthy political trend stop asks the professor? When and how will it stop?

The journalists would not be drawn into this rather touchy political question. Somewhat surprising was then a journalists took out the ‘Star” Wow! Were we amazed at how the timing is?  If i may I copy and  reposts from this internet portal. 

Consultant Anas Zubedy shelled out more than RM36,000 for his advertisement yesterday in The Star, the country’s biggest-selling English-language newspaper.

In the ad, he spoke of the challenges faced by his 20 staff, their fears for the future — and how the country’s leaders seem oblivious to the anxiety that he feels is gripping the nation.

“Whether (the governing) Barisan Nasional or (opposition) Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leads is meaningless . . . if Malaysians have no job to go to, no money to pay rent and no means to put food on the table,” he wrote.

“Pakatan Rakyat, please stop your attempts to take over the federal government and just let go. The nation can wait until the next general election if they want change.

“Barisan Nasional, please stop any attempts to take over PR states and win over PR lawmakers. You have proved your point with Perak. The nation can wait for the next general election if they want your party.”

Anas called on politicians from all sides to “get together and compromise”, telling them: “Someone has to give in. Take the nation to heart. That’s why you are in politics in the first place. Focus on the people. Focus on the economy.”

Believe it or not the Chairman of Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club (BNBBC) Tiong King Sing also said something similar. He said,”The BNBCC wants harmony and there to be political stability.

This is because only through political stability can only the country move forward and the current economic turmoil be stabilised. “Our duty is to raise issues and rectify the problems.”

BLOGGERS  whoever we support BN or Pakatan can also do likewise. This country Malaysia is ours and we do not want it to fall so far behind the others in the region. Malaysiakini  of Malaysiatoday internet portal can do their part in this too by even getting a polls survey.

There are some within the BN and Pakatan politicians will feel that their relevancy will diminished if they stop politiking. They say mosts Malaysian Politicians cannot do without Perceptions,creating headlines as they want to stay RELEVANT. That is the greatest folly. 

If our leaders continue to stray away from their main objectives in pushing MALAYSIA FORWARD we can and we will have the right to TELL THEM to look themselves in the mirror. WHO ARE THEY WITHOUT MALAYSIA..??? Enough is enough and lets put this country of ours back in its righful place.

We know that the country will be facing three by elections in the 2 bukit and 1 batang constituency but its not an excuse to forget about Malaysia’s economy and the unemployment problems.

 We say as always,” Bloggers lets unite and tell our leaders that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OF BICKERING” and look into Malaysia and the PEOPLES  needs immediatedly. The people are united on this FRONT

“Tiong Listens to Anwar..??”

The sms from Bintulu at 21.52pm,”Go to Dayak Nation Tv”,”Malaysiakini headlines and themalaysianInsider”and you will know what I mean. I was obviously puzzled and sms back to to my friend in Bintulu? Bro..what about? Is it something to do with Karpal,Royalty,Perak,the by elections or with the Malaysiatoday blogger RPK?

Nope,its Tiong King Sing and Anwar..? Watch DAYAK BARU.COM and listen to clip 1 of the 4. You will pick up something and posts it. Alright and I listened like a good listener.

Anwar said to Tiong,,”Eh.. Pakai Dewan pun tak boleh”  Semua restaurant, kerusi dan meja bapa lu punya kah..? Dia jawab balik,tak,tak,tak saya sikit pun tak kacau. Betul tak betul saya tak tahu” This was at the PKR Bintulu function on February 21st. Has Tiong suddenly gone soft?   

It seems the backbencher chairman is playing the right kind of politics. Someone or his political stategists must have POLISHED him up to play his part as the Chairman of Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club (BNBBC). He must have been tutored well.

Today in Parliament it was a scene similar to the ones we see in Taiwan or Korea. Could this be happening in Malaysia.? We always say “cometh the hour, cometh the man” .

 Tiong used his political knowledge with words urging all parties to stay calm in the aftermath of a scuffle today between Umno Youth members and Pakatan Rakyat lawmakers.

Listen,listen and more listening. He must have listened to Anwar’s various ceramahs or else this could not have come out from him.Tiong said in the aftermath of the ruckus,scuffles that the “The BNBCC wants harmony and there to be political stability.

This is because only through political stability can only the country move forward and the current economic turmoil be stabilised. “Our duty is to raise issues and rectify the problems. We should not use the Dewan to attack each other. Don’t need to raise sensitive issues among the races.”

Malaysiakini internet portal obviously carried the breaking news at 2.57pm in the afternoon in which it headlined,”Singh is King,mobbed.MP claims assault” House speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia expressed regret over the incident, which he said was a first in Parliament.

Meanwhile,Anwar called it a”pinnacle of insolence” this is an extracted version by Anwar from Malaysiakini portal,”We are fed-up with promises that action will be taken and we don’t just want any investigations, we want an assurance from the speaker that the sanctity of this Parliament will not be destroyed.”

We say as always,” The Parliament is not a boxing ring.There should be a thorough investigation and security in Parliament must be stepped up.Wonder what would have happened if it turned ugly..?

“Pakatan Sarawak Bloggers vs BN in N29 Batang Ai”

I was happily sipping my coffee @$.90 cents in my favourite haunt when a phone call I received and the caller said,”BN-SNAP losts 741 and last elections 806 also losts. Now PKR ticket “mesti kalah jua“.

 He was referring to the PKR frontrunner Nicholas Bawin who was mentioned as one of the candidates being lobbied as the man to take on the might of BN in N29 Batang Ai State Constituency.  

The Malaysiakini article in which it headlined Unting’s death opens the way for NCR redress” must have caught the eyes of my caller this morning. He mentioned  this ,” in this constituency crisscrossed by three rivers on the banks of which are located some 100 Iban longhouses, logistics and a big campaign chest, the BN’s trump card, are decisive factors.”

 What chances my friend he said..? BN will have upper hand and the helicopters brrr,brrr,brrr and also trying to make the sound of the roter blades close to my ears. In our earlier articles we did mention that BN will have a upperhand in not only this bylection but the impending Sarawak state election with the machinery and resources available.

Now even PRS President James Masing in the local tabloids this morning is playing the role of a coalition partner and the normal BN procedure. His statement,”I have the name of the lists of candidates in mind,but as of now its not for public consumption because the names of the candidates will be submitted to the CM and PM for consideration.” 

BN PRS is ready to take on the impending assault team from PKR. One of local voter said,”Bloggers what’s the use in this rural remote area.” Even RPK (referring to Malaysia’s  popular blogger) datang siapa dia..? Kalau Anwar Ibrahim datang orang mahu jumpa. Political Observers have mentioned that the PKR candidate will need all the help it needs.

All is not losts though as most of the Sarawak Bloggers as mentioned by A.Ahmad in Dayakbaru weblog are all politicians in their own right. They are also campaigners and have some influence in determining the mindset of the voters in their own areas and their base of operation.How much they will have an impact in Batang Ai is yet to be seen as this is yet to be proven in Sarawak.

Malaysiakini internet portal news,blogger articles needs to be downloaded and photostated while BN is using the main stream media in Borneo Posts,Eastern times,Utusan Sarawak and the TV channels. Who then has the upper hand and PKR will need all the help they can muster.

The following bloggers can make a good team, plus the people/bloggers as mentioned by the dayakbaru weblog.

1. Borneo Warrior
2. Broken shield
3. Dayaknation
4. Sarawakheadhunter
5. Selangaump2008
6. TbsBidayuh

A.Ahmad said Peninsular bloggers can’t come to Batang Ai due to distance and the need for the two Bukits in Perak and Kedah, plus we are preparing for a showdown in Perak where we want to oust the illegal Umno MB and bring back our legitimate MB Mohd Nizar, though hopefully he will come to campaign in Batang Ai.

We say as always,” According to the phonecaller BN will win as sympathetic votes will be the determining factor. Really, but we say THE CANDIDATE is the FACTOR…

Anwar,Najib,Nizar,Zambry..Oooooh Perak..NEXT.!!

Are we too good for this? It seems that Perak has once again jolted us with more plots which even the Peraknites don’t even know “What the hell is coming next..?” I was meeting a client from Perak who was here on a recruiting assignment. 

He said,”Just cannot keep up” Let’s just get on with what we are good at and let the Politicians sort it out” Did he really mean it..? Of course not as he was first of the blocks.

Two MBs what a joke for our State and he said even our former PM Dr.M said its hilarious as he read it at the Malaysiakini portal on his phone.

This cannot be happening can it? Whatever has become of our democratic system and governance? Doesn’t the people’s voice count for anything nowadays?

Please tell me and how can I ask local investors or recruit workers to Perak when it the government is not stable. Believe it or not just look at this,” WHAT..?’ This is Next..!! Ooooh no Perak…please save us someone as anger rage from his face and his fists clenched. You see and this was what it was headlined,”Pakatan Perak reps were offered millions to cross over”

Malaysiakini though has this,” Two Pakatan Rakyat state assemblypersons today filed a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) claiming that they were offered millions of ringgit to quit their respective parties and become Independents or join Barisan Nasional (BN).”

DAP’s Keshvinder Singh (Malim Nawar) said he was offered RM20 million while Abdul Yunus Jamsari of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (Kuala Kurau) said the amount offered to him was between RM3 million and RM8 million

Millions mine you,my Perak client said and thats not about it. Thrown into the hat were also appointed posts and logging concessions.Wonder what would I have done if I was given that if I am in the politician now he said.

Wow! a turnaround and that is why some people when they see the ‘COLOURS OF MONEY” or like Tom Cruise who says,”SHOW ME THE MONEY” anything can be compromised and for that.. principles too I suppose. 

I told my client  if only you are a politician cum businessman you could have brokered the deal. Millions and 20% brokerage fee is sufficient. It is a known fact that many HIDDEN HANDS are involved in Malaysian politics wheeling and dealing to get the best deals. This only happens as the country is in a state of insecurity and politicians are usually the “PRICED HIGHLY IN THE POLITICAL MARKET.  

He showed me another report which appeared in the Malaysiakini internet portal,” the offer was made by several agents comprising businessmen who claimed to be representing the Perak BN leadership.”

Wah..! Desperate times call for Desperate measures. It seems its a blame game now and both of Pakatan and BN are getting on at each other and we the Peraknites suffers in the end. We even have to come to Sarawak to look for business. Maybe if this continues close up shop in Perak and Open up shop in Sarawak. Oh Yea..hahaha

So we say as always,” Please BN and Pakatan whoever  it is put the house in order and let the people of Perak carry on with their daily lifes. The Malaysian economy is not exactly healthy and this Political uncertainty in the State of Perak has just got to end.

“Litmus, Acid or Test of Strength”..Its Battle of the 4

Malaysiakini,the Edge and Broken Shield all have headlines like,”Acid Test for Pakatan” “Batang-Ai: more than a litmus tests for support” and the Edge correspondent team posted in Malaysiatoday,”PKR sees Batang Ai as a tests of strength”

PM and BN Chairman Abdullah said already in the national tabloids that BN will certainly defend the Batang Ai N29 Sarawak state seat. He said,”we have to stand because it was a BN seat.How can we not defend the seat…?”

Its very ironic that March the 4th has been penned down as the date when the Election Commission will sit down and fix the nomination and election dates. The EC has received the notice on the vacancy of the Batang Ai state seat this morning.

Sarawak EC director Takun Sunggah was quoted as saying that the notice, signed by Sarawak state assembly speaker Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar, was faxed to the EC headquarters in Putrajaya.

So who amongst the Battle of the 4 will be the common candidate for either the Pakatan and BN.? What will be the determining factor? Who will power broker the choices? At the moment only 4 names are being thrown in the hat and with the EC making March 4 the date of reckoning for N29 Batang Ai there is still sufficient time for the LOBBYISTS

PKR seems to have shortlisted 2 names. PKR state assemblyperson Gabriel Adit told Malaysiakini that the party is“looking for a winnable candidate,” he said, adding that Bawin is among the frontrunners.

Bawin is former president of the Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU) as well as former vice-chairperson of the Majlis Adat Istiadat, a state government agency.

Another name mentioned as a likely candidate is popular local Iban politician Jawah Gerang, the former Lubok Antu MP who has not losts in 5 elections.

As for the BN candidate according to our sources there are also 2  in question.The frontrunners seems to be between former immigration officer Naga Alam and Personal Secretary to the late YB Dublin or senior civil servant Nelson Mujah Giri, currently the district officer of Lubok Antu.

A lot of “thoughts,differing opinions,board room party battles,skirmishes and lobbying” amongst the supporters of the 4 candidates will be held between now and the day of announcement of the candidates representing BN- PRS or PKR -Pakatan.

The 4 lobbying parties concerned will ensure that their candidates are chosen over the other as who ever is chosen it will determine who will represent N29 in the State Assembly.

Obviously the VOTERS will have the FINAL SAY but the candidate in question has to be acceptable before they mark X.

We say as always,” Whoever is chosen and wins for the party concern it should be an early GAWAI present.
