“YBs Resignation..No Tears,No Hurrah..”

Cindy received news earlier from a PKR innsider that one of their own from Kedah has resigned. The immediate reaction was ,”Who is he? Why he resigned? Whats happening? Where is heading to with the resignation? Its all questions and Cindy of audie 61 reposts this Malaysiakini report and hopefully there will be some answers for you:-

Kedah Pakatan has today been rocked with a defection – Lunas state assemblyperson Mohd Radzhi Salleh, who is also an executive council member, quit PKR citing loss of confidence in the party’s leadership.

  He has announced himself as an independent state assemblyman.

Radzhi, 56, will nevertheless continue as Lunas seat representative as well as the state executive council post.

But his state cabinet post is in doubt as Kedah Menteri Besar Azizan Razak is likely to ask him step down from his tourism and community development portfoio.

With Radzhi’s resignation from PKR, the PAS-led government Kedah now has 21 seats against Barisan Nasional 14, with one Independent.

 

 

 The Pakatan Rakyat state government is composed of PAS (16 seats), PKR (now 4) and DAP (1), while Umno makes up the bulk of BN with 12 seats while MCA and Gerakan has one each.

In an immediate reaction, PKR leaders said that Radzhi’s resignation could be triggered by a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission investigation into his tourism portfolio.

They also said that the PKR leadership had expressed dissatisfaction over his performance.

Padang Serai PKR division ‘dissolved’

Radzhi’s decision to quit PKR has not come as a surprise to Padang Serai parliamentarian N Gobalakrishnan.

“I was expecting it for a long time … he was close to Mahdzir Khalid (former Kedah menteri besar),” said the MP from Kedah, whose Padang Serai constituency includes the Lunas state seat.

 

 Radzhi won Lunas in the general election last year defeating MIC’s S Ananthan Somasundram by 10,323 majority votes.

The other state seat under Gobalakrishnan’s constituency is Merbau Pulas held by PAS’ Siti Aishah Ghazali.

A key ally of Radzhi, acting Padang Serai PKR division chief Jamaludin Abu Hassan has also today announced that his division had been dissolved.

Gobalakrishnan said he had received numerous complaints on Radzhi’s poor performance from party members and voters over the past six months.

He claimed that Radzhi’s defection was timed to enable BN to reclaim the initiative in the Permatang Pasir by-election campaign in neigbouring Penang.

“Now Umno can portray PKR and Pakatan as crumbling in Kedah. By doing so, Umno thought it can fish some votes in Permatang Pasir.

“But the truth is PKR in Padang Serai and the Kedah Pakatan government are still strong, united and safe,” he told Malaysiakini.

BN seeks to engineer coup in Kedah

Defection rumours involving Radzhi first surfaced when former PKR leader V Arumugam quit as Kedah exco and Bukit Selambau assemblyperson in February.

S Manikumar won the Bukit Selambau state seat in the subsequent by-election in April.

 

Gobalakrishnan said the party supreme council had suspended Padang Serai division in April “for carrying out activities against PKR interests” during the Bukit Selambau by-election campaign.

Some Kedah PKR leaders indicated that the lack of strong PKR state leadership and the domination of PAS in the state government could well be other major factors that had influenced Radzhi’s decision to defect.

 

Last month, the sole DAP assemblyperson, Lee Guan Aik (Kota Darul Aman), had threatened to quit the state cabinet in protest over the relocation of a pig abbatoir.

“Radzhi was quiet unhappy with PAS leaders lately due to the lack of help from state government for him to carry out his exco duties and constituency works in Lunas.

“So when Umno came calling, he was tempted,” said an elected representative, adding that he would not be surprised if Radzhi joins Umno soon.

Another leader said he believed BN had always harboured hopes of luring all five PKR assemblypersons to secure the necessary numbers to topple the Kedah government.

If all PKR men were to jump ship, BN would have 19 seats against Pakatan’s 17, enough to form a razor-thin majority.

Besides Radzhi, the other PKR excutive councillors in Kedah are S Manikumar and Bakar Arang state representative Tan Wei Shu.

 

Manikumar is in charge of domestic trade and consumer affairs, Thai community affairs, plantation workers’ unity and Indian community affairs, while Tan is in charge of environment, Chinese community affairs and transport.

Later in the afternoon, Gobalakrishnan and a group of PKR supporters held an impromtu protest outside the Padang Serai constitutency service centre calling on Radzhi to quit his Lunas seat to pave way for a by-election .

PKR reps are Pakatan’s weakness link

Meanwhile, PKR election director Saifuddin Nasution said Radzhi’s defection would not cause much harm to PAS’ bid in winning the Permatang Pasir by-election.

 

 “I don’t think Umno spin doctors can sway that many votes,” said the former Lunas assemblyperson who is now Machang parliamentarian.

He described Radzhi as a rotten apple in PKR and said the party was happy to see the back of him.

“We have always suspected this scenario would happen since six to seven months ago. PKR will be better without him.”

However, Saifuddin conceded that PKR elected representatives are the weakest link within the Pakatan coalition.

“It’s something that the party leadership needs look into seriously. Otherwise it will shake public confidence in us,” he said.

PKR supreme council member Saiful Izham Ramli has disputed the status of Padang Serai division.

He explained that the division had been suspended since last month after the party found both Radzhi and Jamaludin were engaging in secret talks with Umno leaders to plot against the Kedah state government.

Saiful said PKR Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul had been tasked by the party to take over the division.

Interesting political Snippets:- Muhyiddin Yassin hinted more PKR lawmakers could quit the opposition party.Many PKR members and elected representatives no longer trust Anwar Ibrahim because they realise that the party’s struggles are only for meant one individual, that is Anwar,

Anwar PKR de facto leader denied rumours that more Kedah assemblyman would be following Radzhi’s footsteps.Anwar said he had received many complaints lately about Radzhi’s disciplinary problems, mismanagement of claims and marital problems.

Were Tears Shed by PKR and Hurrah by BN…We Wonder…??

“Correct,Correct,Correct..Wife and Girlfriend”

dog1

Natasha says the spat between Tiong and Ong is Getting Worse….tsk tsk tsk..??? Will he be losing his MCA CROWN..? Now Tiong has ruled out that PM Najib is involved in his tiff with Ong. What lah!  Correct,correct,correct  Tiong used this,”If you (were to) find a (new) girlfriend, would you go back and get a green light from your wife.??”

The full report extracted from Malaysiakini..

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak was not pulling the strings behind the bitter public spat between two Barisan Nasional leaders.

Bintulu MP Tiong King Sing – who shot to stardom with his RM10 million allegation last week – said the premier did not give him the clearance to go for MCA president Ong Tee Keat’s jugular.

When the war of words exploded, rumours were rife that Najib’s fingerprints were all over the scene.

After all, how could a mere parliamentarian get away with embarrassing Ong, who helms the second biggest component party, and was appointed by the premier as transport minister.

It was said that Najib was cross with Ong for putting the government in the spotlight by spilling the beans on the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal.

Speaking to Malaysiakini in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday, Tiong had ruled this out.

According to the Sarawak tycoon turned politician, his tiff with the MCA president was a private matter.

 To illustrate his point, Tiong said: “If you (were to) find a (new) girlfriend, would you go back and get a green light from your wife?”

“Why get others involved? If you want to do it, you should be responsible for it yourself,” he added.

Playing down the issue, Tiong said he was merely clarifying certain points raised by MCA leaders who came to their president’s defence.

‘Shameful’ allegation

Quizzed on Ong’s allegation that ‘external forces’ were raising RM100 million to topple him, Tiong, who was tickled by this,described it as shameful.

“He said I was raising RM100 million to topple him. Please. Don’t project yourself as somebody so difficult… that so much money is needed to topple you. Please! Don’t bring shame to our community.

“Don’t be like the opposition, everyday make up stories and ask for sympathy. Why do you want to do all this? Is it necessary?” he asked.  

 Since commissioning an audit on PKFZ, Ong claimed that his life had been threatened by certain individuals linked to the mega project while others were planning to use the issue to stage a coup.

Though no names were ever mentioned, it is widely believed that Ong was suggesting that his estranged deputy Dr Chua Soi Lek was joining forces with those accused of impropriety in the PKFZ fiasco.

Tiong is a major stakeholder in PKFZ turnkey developer Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd, which has been accused of inflating claims from RM500 million to RM1 billion.

He has rubbished the accusation, stating that Kuala Dimensi was never given a chance to defend itself before the Transport Ministry-commissioned special task force went public with the matter.

Radio station warned

Meanwhile, Tiong also slammed the MCA-owned radio station 98.8FM over its Tuesday breakfast programme where one of the hosts made disparaging remarks against him.  

 The remark was uttered during a segment where the three hosts would comment on various newspaper articles.

“If you want to talk, don’t talk about something outside the flow. Don’t say that I ‘dig the hole and drag people in with me’.

“Don’t talk in that manner. Don’t abuse your freedom. This is a warning to 98.8FM,” he thundered, pounding his fist on the table.

“I didn’t know that the radio station belongs to the Star (newspaper, owned by MCA)… Why did they turn and twist? They were adding sugar and vinegar (to their content). Why?” he asked.

MCA/SPDP “Baaaaaaaa..Conned..Hmmm”

SACRIFICIAL_LAMB[1]

Oh No! What else can I do? Cindy has this all wrapped up in this pictorial analysis….Very Happy to Help MCA says Tiong ….Baaaaaaaaaaa

This is the Malaysiakini report

RM1 rental: Tiong feels ‘conned’ by MCA
Andrew Ong
Aug 18, 09
6:51pm
The revelation by a MCA divisional leader that the party owns RM2 billion worth of assets has Bintulu MP and tycoon Tiong King Sing all riled up.This is because the party approached him for help in order to secure the use of eight four-storey shoplots for MCA-owned Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAR) College campus in Penampang, Sabah.Based on the tenancy agreement, TAR College only needs to pay Tiong’s company Wawasan Sdn Bhd a nominal fee of RM1 monthly for all units. 
 

Speaking to Malaysiakini at his office in Petaling Jaya today, Tiong said he had allowed the deal to go through in order to help MCA in its pursuit to provide affordable education.

Now, Tiong is feeling deceived after reading China Press’ report quoting Setiawangsa division MCA head Ho Yoon Ping’s boast that the party had RM2 billion in assets.

Given the party’s financial standings, Ho said it made no sense for the party or its president Ong Tee Keat to seek RM10 million in donations from Tiong. 

 “In a way, I have found out that I have been cheated,” said Tiong, “They are so rich (with) RM2 billion in assets and they tell me they are poor.”

“When they came to see me, they said that MCA had no money and couldn’t pay me (rent) or it would be charged on the students. I said ‘okay’, especially since the economy was not good at the time.

“I wanted to help reduce cost for the student and at the same time help to promote education.

“Do you think that by giving, I’m begging Utar (Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman) for a doctorate?” asked Tiong.

Tiong vs Ong

Adding insult to injury was the fact that Tiong’s company spent RM200,000 to refurbish the buildings before they were handed over.

The tenancy agreement, sighted by Malaysiakini, showed that the deal was inked in 2007 and is set to expire in six months.

 

 

 

 “No need to worry, it is still a long way to go,” said Tiong, when asked if he would still extend the tenancy agreement based on status quo.

He said he will take time to consider if the building should be rented to other causes.

Meanwhile, Tiong said he was not trying to find fault with MCA members who are trying to protect their party president Ong Tee Kiat (left).

However, Tiong said that if he is hit with accusations, he had the right to reply as in Ho’s case.

“I urge all the members. Please stop it. Let me (slug it out) with your president,” he said. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXkf143d7-E

Hmmm..Bad to Worse..BN Headache!! 

Ti-Ong.Ma-“Lord of the Rings”

Oxford University professor J. R. R. Tolkien who wrote the epic high fantasy novel”Lord of the Rings”would very much love to have Tiong King Sing as a leading man in his movie.However,Tiong is unavailable at the moment as he seems to be hogging the limelight in the Malaysian Politics controversy between BN “SPDP and MCA” in which he is so “PPpppppprrrrrreeecioussssssssssss

LORD_OF_THE_RINGS[5]

Natasha of audie61 saw a Mirror Image and we thought of the Lord of the Rings..

“Grrrrr…MCA/SPDP..Aaaah”

Joey saw this at Malaysiakini internet portal and thought this was highly controversial with leaders of BN Ong and Tiong at each others throats. audie61 reposts this Malaysiakini article for the benefit of all other viewers .

 Bintulu MP Tiong King Sing, who is in the eye of the storm over the RM10 million donation controversy, has confirmed that his political party will expand its ‘boundaries’ to go national.

The Sarawak People’s Democratic Party (SPDP) will not only make inroads into the peninsula, but will become a full-fledged multiracial party, he said.

 

  

Tiong was quoted as saying this in Chinese media reports today in response to allegations made by MCA president Ong Tee Keat at a special briefing for party delegates last Sunday.

Ong (left) had claimed that forces within and outside MCA are conspiring to overthrow him through various means, including setting up funds valued up to RM100 million to remove him through a special EGM.

Although he did not name those involved, the general understanding that he was targeting MCA deputy president Dr Chua Soi Lek, with whom he has a long-standing hostile relationship.

If this failed, said Ong, a Sarawak-based multiracial party would move into Peninsular Malaysia “to destroy MCA”. Alternatively, a newly-formed multiracial party would serve as a vehicle for dissidents to join Barisan Nasional (BN), thereby replacing MCA.

Tiong confirmed that SPDP, in which he is treasurer, has plans to set up branches in the peninsula. Describing this as a national issue, he slammed Ong for trying to obstruct his party’s expansion because of “a personal vendetta”.

He pointed out that MCA is a race-based party, while SPDP has a multiracial membership profile. As such, Ong “has no business meddling with the expansion plan”.   

“We are all BN component parties, so what’s wrong with making inroads into Peninsular Malaysia? Some with a narrow political mindset think that parties from the peninsula can go into Sabah and Sarawak, but not vice versa,” Tiong reportedly said.

“Many new parties have been established in the peninsula. Why didn’t he make noise then?”

Asked why a Sarawak party would want to move into the peninsula, Tiong explained that the last general election had proved to be a watershed in politics.

“Many voters and members of political parties are disillusioned with the way BN and its component parties are run, but they don’t want to cross over to the opposition .

“So expanding SPDP would give them a choice (to join a new party) as we’re still under the BN banner. Does this mean it will destroy MCA and destablise BN?”

‘Secret witness on PKFZ’

Last week, Tiong had revealed that he had given Ong RM10 million last year as funds for MCA divisions.

This caused a political storm that has all but swept away Ong’s carefully nurtured image as a clean and courageous politician.

While Ong has categorically denied receipt of any money from Tiong, the situation has evolved to implicate other key party leaders. 

  Wanita head Chew Mei Fun  has admitted that Tiong had donate RM35,000 for the wing’s welfare activities. Youth chief Wee Ka Siong angered by rumours that he had received RM1 million from Tiong, has denied the allegation.

Tiong reiterated that the RM10 million donation is a personal matter between him and Ong and urged other party leaders not to get involved.

He claimed, though, that Ong has tried to turn this into a party matter by playing on the siege mentality of members while portraying himself as a victim. Ong had claimed that he is expecting the worst – such a demotion or enforced resignation from his cabinet post as transport minister.

Taunted Tiong: “Has anyone issued a call to overthrow Ong? Has the cabinet asked him to resign? Is (crying wolf) part of a so-called daring president’s character?”

He challenged Ong to a man-to-man dialogue to explain where the money has gone, and also dared him and his wife to make public their bank statements.

“I have a secret witness who can reveal Ong’s real intention in directing investigations into the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) issue. As soon as the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report was completed, the witness alerted me about the one-sided findings,” said Tiong.

“He told a powerful figure that all the contracts had been awarded legally, but the person blew his top and insisted that ‘Tiong must be nailed’ at all costs. This person also said that, even if the Port Klang Authority (PKA) is sued for terminating the contracts, the burden would fall on PKA and not on himself.”

Tiong also hit out at the PwC and special task force reports, saying his contracting company Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd had never been called to assist in the probe or allowed to defend itself against the allegations of irregularities.

“Is this the so- called fair, just and transparent report? Somebody is trying to find a scapegoat by fabricating accusations. And if he succeeds, he will be able to maintain his Justice Bao image and become a national hero!”

 

  (Justice Bao lived during the Song dynasty and has been acknowledged as a fair judge. He did not cave in to pressure, but delivered his rulings strictly on the merits of the case.)

Tiong refuted Ong’s claim that PKFZ scandal had led to massive loss of support for MCA and BN in the last general election.

“The same issues were also played up in Sarawak and in my constituency. Why haven’t Sarawak BN and Bintulu fallen into the hands of the opposition?”

“Isn’t it obvious now as to who is trying to ruin BN? Is it me who has hidden agenda or someone else?”

Tiong is a major player in Wijaya Baru Global Holdings Bhd, the parent company of Kuala Dimensi, the turnkey-contractor of the multi-billion ringgit PKFZ project.

Kuala Dimensi has repeatedly railed against the Transport Ministry and the PKA’s public accusations that the company was involved in excessive profiteering in the PKFZ project.

WOW!! Hmmm Full Scale No Holds Barred ..

Oooh Ai..”Sarawak Headache..??

GetAttachment

Natasha says the boss has gone on HIATUS and will only be back on September 11th and it is timely that we posts this article from our fellow blogger as this article has some interesting facts to ponder on especially Sarawak Political Affairs.

By Abdul Hakim Bujang (sarawak update)

It has been five boring years since I was being paid three months salary to go on leave forever by the Sarawak Tribune. Based on the sacking letter the management was saying this was according to the agreed term that we can part company by paying each other three months wages.

However, when I met Datuk Seri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar slightly earlier than that I was told that I have to be sacked because of my tendency to meddle in Sarawak succession issues. Hmmmm hmmm hmmm.

My largest sin according to Asfia was for openly supporting Datuk Amar Abang Johari liutenant, Ibrahim Baki in the race to become Petra Jaya MP. Asfia said he fully understood my support for Johari because of my Kuching roots, ha ha ha.

Mak kau tu’au Belawai lah pok! Apak kau tu’au Ajang! A former YB of my Kampung not knowing my family roots, he must be sick. My uncle is now a certain MP pol sec, true blue grassroot Gurkha, pity Asfia – typical of a parachutist that think too highly of their paper credentials.

In fact, Ibrahim lost that race partly because of his refusal to listen to my advice on the danger of certain “3/4″ advisor. Ibrahim knew whom, and we had a good laugh about it, years ago…

That “3/4″ advisor eventually climb Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) hierarchy at lightning speed right after that, of course much more higher than Asfia himself, surely at the chagrin of pure Malays who are much more senior than him.

We cannot blame the advisor because he and Abang Johari sharing a common trait, liked and accepted by people from all walks of life, regardless of race or religion.

logo_pbb

Unlike some arrogant, fake pretenders of PBB who have forgotten that their election victory are purely courtesy of Barisan Nasional (BN) ticket and help from the Chief Minister during campaigning period.

Come the next election, let wait and see, the people eyes are wide open now and they knew BN are not indispensable. Illiterate parents are blessed with educated children and oppositions are slowly adopting BN strategy, translating support into vote.

Those in BN who are still dreaming must remember that Datuk Alfred Yap once said that he can win without Malays votes, and he successfully dig his own political grave.

With the curent H1N1 outbreak and bad weather, Yap can always put on a haze mask and try asking what the Malays have to say about him?

Look at SK Haji Baki, the Malays majority school that is still sporting 1965 pre independence like building. Datuk Yong Khoon Seng vehicle too are rarely being sighted at Kampung Semaba now after winning by a whisker against DAP.

Politic of earned respect and acceptance

I have seen Chief Minister blue eyed boys came and go. Names like Datuk Dr Seri Effendi Norwawi, Datuk Wahab Dollah, Haji Bolhassan Di and many more would surely came to mind, but where are they now?

Oh my god, I forgot about Datuk Seri Adenan Satem, is he still alive and alright? He was once rumoured to be Taib successor.

I was on so many occasion being tasked to spin great stories about Adenan but more than often would never get the desired level of co-operation.

Partly because we never have that chemistry. My friends who can cope cocky species, having patience to wait for hours, and wasting time writing caption moronic report, does not have problem dealing with Adenan, not me.

Nobody in right frame of mind would believe that Adenan is an ordinary Joe equivalent to Dr Wahbi Junaidi now despite whacking PKR Sarawak treasurer general Haji Sobey Daud to pieces. (Haji Sobey goes into hiding for several months after that defeat unable to accept losing deposit and feeling ashame of certain quarters ridicule, politic!)

Adenan, Wahab and Bolhassan obviously sharing same quality, they are very intelligent people. However in politic being intelligent alone is not enough, you have to be smart.

Sadly, in my personal opinion all three are simply not smart enough. Bolhassan attitude changed him from the most popular supreme council member to an overnight party poll loser. There no need for me to elaborate about Adenan and Wahab, people knew.

Wahab used to be my employer  “owner”, Bolhassan my boss “Best Friend” while Adenan “most important VIP” but all three have disappeared into thin air.

There are simply too many other names, and majority are choosing to blame conspiracy for their failure to get the spot in the press.

Probably, they must hire me to bring a tape recorder in my pocket and start listening to what the rakyat have to say about them, what the average reporters have to think about them and what their grassroots leaders have to tell the press. I can do that at RM5,000 per month.

In politic, respect is earned until you become the most powerful guy. I criticise Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman like hell over the Muslim graveyard issues in Mile 3. He still smiles to me and shake my hand instead of cursing or hurling abuses to me.

I write very nasty remarks about Abang Johari at the height of the previous state election, he still shake my hand and smile to me. Same thing Dr Abdul Rauf, Wan Junaidi and few others. We still have certain level of respect for each other although we are not friends like what we used to be.

Parachutist syndrome in PBB

I have never read any report on Wanita PBB activities in the media. May be partly because I no longer subscribe to PBB linked Eastern Times and Utusan Sarawak.

When I was working for NST (stringer), Bernama and Sarawak Tribune, getting comments from Hajah Fatimah the  deputy PBB Wanita chief was the easiest thing to do. When I was tasked to publish a Wanita magazine, trying to meet her is much more difficult than that of meeting a super senior Minister 20 years her senior. How people changed!

Ironically, majority of the PBB Wanita are now working on their own. Fatimah going to the left with her Ministry roles, Hasidah going to the right over her constituency function, while Nancy Shukri busy with her so-called Parliamentarian capacity. By the way, who is the Wanita chief? Is PBB wanita headless or what?

To me this is only supposed to happen to an organisation led by the so called barely-educated-project driven grassroot politician.

That was not to be. Sadly, more and more parachutist are landing in PBB and creating what my friend described as “Pemimpin yang perlu dipimpin”. It is not only in PBB though, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) much worst than that, I will write about their anti instutition leadership at some other time.

I have heard about so-called PBB youth leaders rarely attending meeting, overheard about youth leaders openly requesting for project during meeting, and many more.

Its sad to hear this kind of accusation about PBB flying around, I hope they are plain rumours. If they are indeed true, PBB must start doing something and goes back to the basic.

Do not wait much longer, do the spring cleaning and get rid of some of the deadwood that spell very negative connotation!

PRS TDC

dscn0879a1

This year is also supposed to be an election year for two Dayak majority or so-called Dayak-based political party, Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP).

I have almost lost track of Dayak politic. In the early 2000, Dayak politic was literally my game. I followed the Sarawak National Party (SNAP) crisis from day one. It was triggered by the sacking of Datuk Tiong King Sing.

This year, Tiong is also carving a name for himself in SPDP and most likely would vie for deputy presidency. Tiong trusted friend called me the other day optimistic that SPDP deputy president, Datuk Peter Nyarok would be giving way. I hope Tiong will not reveal his generosity to Nyarok in public the way he did about Malaysia Chinese Association (MCA) president that earned him MACC attention, here.

Mawan, the most intelligent Dayak leader and very smart too, had given the greenlight for a contest in SPDP, for all position out of democracy spirit. I know deep in his heart, Mawan is praying that Tiong would not changed mind or strike a deal with Nyarok to oust him, ha ha ha.

Over in PRS, talks about Datuk Seri Dr James Masing will be challenged by Datuk Joseph Entulu had silent down. Though the two extreme outside PRS are obviously showing comfort that Entulu is making his displeasure toward Masing publicly on differing background.

Some are hoping that Masing would be ousted so that those kicked out from the party during the recent spat can be brought back and maintained their respective status quo in the Sarawak state Cabinet. Majority of those kick out, however have openly joined PKR or DAP bandwagon, except Larry Sng, my ex FB friend.

The other extreme are hoping that Masing would be challenged so that Entulu would be able to put brake on Joseph Salang political carrier. It was widely speculated that Masing proposed Salang name ahead of Entulu to become Federal cabinet minister.

Salang presence in PRS is a threat to some, partly because of his “independent” financial status or political world view. In fact, Salang and Masing were the original “successors” groomed by Tan Sri Leo Moggie. That what Salang often told me, but politic would always be tricky and full of uncertainty.

Anwar and his Dayak paratroopers

anwar and his troops

The dull Sarawak political landscape was once again alive with the arrival of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and the Ibans from Kuala Lumpur.

Anwar was never tired of saying that Pakatan Rakyat would be taking over Sarawak government in the next State election. I would love to see that happening. Anwar, however, is far from having the right team to realise his dream.

He got very good Chinese leaders to help him in Sarawak, but they are not from his own party. PKR chinese leaders could throw a party if they do not lose their deposit in the next election, honestly. Dominique Ng included. I hoped DAP and PKR would square off in Padungan to teach Dominique a lesson that his victory was not about him or PKR, but the public dissatisfaction to the government of the day.

Anwar success in Dayak area would be depending very much on the support that he got from his Kuala Lumpur-based Ibans. These young Ibans from Kuala Lumpur would be playing very important role. Not his existing Iban leaders that have long overstay their welcome in politics.

The so-called Kuala Lumpur Ibans, however are of mixed background as well that Anwar have to do his homework very carefully before trusting or simply fielding the so called champion that stand out.

Some of these highly decorated are actually nothing more than pretenders themselves.

There is one who blogs highly about his business acument and parenting skills, but is nothing more than a PBB rejects who failed both his business and family life.

A seasoned writer, who was formerly based in UK once told me that Sarawak is actually a State with the highest percentage of PhD holder per capita, and Pakatan Rakyat is probably blessed with half of them, majority specialising in alternative medicine.

The once footballing Bintangor clinic dresser turned Doctor included but he would be joining BN soon, not vice versa.

Anwar must not waste his time and effort in Malays area because his anti instistution Band of Samseng Kampung will not bring PKR anywhere.
They can deny it but for how long? I fully agree that politician have to utilise all kind of supporters but naming one such personality as a top leader like what Anwar did before was far from right.

Looking at what is happening in Penang, I am sure the Rakyat knew that there is nothing wrong with having a Malacca guy as Chief Minister, at least among the Kampung Buah Pala folks.

ANY TREMORS IN SARAWAK..??

MA….CC..??

fear                                           

This was what Wong Chuan How the aide to Ronnie Liu had to say which really makes sense in this Malaysiankini extract , he appealed to the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission ) to be “less hostile” in the future to other suspects or witnesses, adding that even criminals should be treated humanely. Do we need to say more says Cindy of audie61 who feels that Malaysian authorities are making use of too much force and it will be a matter of  time the PEOPLE WILL FIGHT BACK.

One must learn from HISTORY and ensures that it MUST NOT BE REPEATED.
