P212 “People Power vs Handicap Bookies”

The first words uttered were in Hockien,”Chin A- Tang Boh..?” It seems the illegal bookies are running scared as most punters in P212 are banking on Wong Ho Leng to give them an early Gawai present.

Eventhough the goodies are a plenty in terms of project development funds,refrigerators,fans, and the newest addition in a by election “mattresses” the BN handicap of 2000 votes losing 85 cents and DAP wining 75 cents are as hot as they come. When one bookie opens up his bets the sharks swallow it all up in a matter of minutes. The trend is not dissimilar to 1982 and has that certain hallmark says a veteran punter

The bookies are asking their BN friends whether the BN will win over 2000 to save their bets. Will they be hit hard this time round? People Power { Punters } in P212 Sibu has a history of knocking out a giant killer the former DCM Wong Soon Kai was a victim of overzealous betting.

Both sides of the political divide condemn election betting but its a known fact that it will not be able to eradicate this menace. This time it seems the people power on the ground is going all out to deal a bad body blow to the RICH SYNDICATED LOCAL BOOKIE FIRMS.

 If not why all the sudden frentic calls like the time when the electricity was cut off /tripped /damaged/burnt  during football matches especially the one between West Ham and Arsenal. The tip caused a number of established local heavy weight bookies to close shop and flee.

Something is moving the market and even the impending arrival of Najib with more immediate goodies have not stopped the trend. Will DAP/PR suffer with a backlash..? Though its early days yet but once the Sibu folks have made up their minds its difficult to overturn their decision. Its Gawai Soon and BN/SUPP win with 1999 votes will keep the People Power happy…………………
