On the home front /coffe shop talk there are so many stories being thrown about and most of course are half truths. Mind you though some do have credibility as they are quite logical. audie61 of course did contact some Sarawak MPs and mosts say its blown out of proportion. Really..??
One political secretary said,”the Deputy speaker must have a point.He is afterall sitting on the high chair and if has taken down the facts,statistics and number of times the Sarawak MPs does not have a case against him.

We speak wt full of decorum.We in BN don’t make it a tradition n culture to outsiders,let alone thr d media,it suffices to say tht we did our part as elected leaders. the people cld c fr d media of our involvement. once we publicize our sensitiveness d opposition laugh at us. Thats why once and for all somebody has to respond.Otherwise, d opp will still tap on it saying that its proven BN reps r passive.B4 we make our sttmt we must think first.”
We say as always,”The people/voters are matured enough to vote for/vote out any Member of Parliament who are not carrying out their duties as an elected representative.Lets just not look down on the voters intelligence. Remember,this is not the 70s or 80s………..
