“DAP AT WAR WITH PKR Sarawak..??”.

It was supposed to be another normal breakfast gathering with my fellow “political brainstormers” One a former banker cum economic columnists told me the political situation is now so muddy and there are so many issues on both sides of the political divide. Another a chemists said that if the equations are not solve it might explode in front of our faces.

It is no more a clear cut single straight line and we have to tread very carefully. One false allegation,lies or defamation someone would justs make a police report and then we will see each other in court. Its too popular nowadays says our emeritus professor.

They said yesterday you mention in your blog on SPDP Princess in which we extract here”Nansian had refuted a recent statement made by Puteri SPDP Barbara Mawan that there was nothing to rescue as Mas Gading was still with BN.

The SPDP Princess he said mentioned that MAS GADING needs to be rescued.What is there to be rescued? I suggest they rescue the losts seats of Krian an Ba’Kelalan.

Guess what.. today another YB but this time from DAP came out to attack a fellow component ally in PKR Sarawak,”stop daydreaming and also in short stop lobbying which they cannot win without DAP” This was in reference to the lobbying of PKR Stampin for candidacy in GE13.(we will put her quote later..extracted from FaceBook)

Wong Ho Leng can say that he did not say that and we try to spin it (see Borneo Posts page 7 )but he musts have forgotten what was written in the February/March Issue of Rocket. Am pretty sure he has a copy.

Oh Yeah! we bought a copy as your DAP vendor sold it to us and we also found the title quite interesting:-HERE COMES THE FUTURE and also “the young and dangerous” an interview with your supremo Lim Kit Siang. Wong Ho Leng do I need to refresh you?

Lim Kit Siang a veteran politician would not even dare to utter those words”daydreaming,stop lobbying,one have to be sure of oneself and the party

Wah! Wisdom to know which party has better chance to win for PR.

Let us quote to you which is extracted from the interview by Lim Kit Siang in which a reporter asked,”Any pearls of wisdom to share with aspiring politicians?”answer..( They have to have the stamina and perserverance to last the journey;as well as commitment and sincerity in serving the people.It is is a long journey) not edited Wong Ho Leng.

We have interviewed previously Voon Shiak Ni lawyer and Women activists.We know her as a true fighter with zests and enthusiasm and she did not come to the fore in PKR until recently. She is all heart and soul for her boss and she will not waver easily and will be quite straight forward when issues are close to her heart.

PKR Voon and Puteri SPDP Barbara are both Wanitas in their own right and to be attacked in such a manner by both gentleman YBs I should say leaves a lot to be desired. CM Taib as much as many have written bad things about him does come good when he talks about PBB Wanita he does not even rule out new women in the lineup of PBB eventhough they have presently 3 Wanita MPs.

Imagine this” he said we already have 3 what more does the wanitas in PBB want?” Imagine the attacks…

We were caught off guard with this posting in the Facebook and with the Headlines “Support us fully in Stampin,DAP tells PKR Wanita” she has every right to answer:( Our apology to all our other dap comrades for this post – WONG HO LENG as an opposition leader in sarawak should not have belittled the whole PKR women wing in borneo post today. … NO one can deny that its the spirits of Pakatan Rakyat n joint efforts of the coalition of PR that broke the fort of BN in the sibu by election for the first time in history ! Mr wong , pls jaga the imej of PR in sarawak ok)

No political party is free from lobbying and there will be many casulties left fuming plus disappointed but there musts be a sense of respect. No matter who we are, both sides would like to present their bests candidates to be chosen by the people in this GE13.

DAP was suspiciously absent from the Jangan Lawan Tauke forum and we tweeted on April 15th”DAP Swak absence at “jangan lawan tauke forum” a surprise many said as they were instrumental in d FRUSIS ISSUE.” Oops, we attended and sorry to spill the beans….

G5 has been on the attack against the present SPDP leadership and it doesnt look good for BN. PR in Sarawak does not fare too well too with DAP Sarawak Chief Wong and also Vice Chairman Chong in recent weeks attacking PKR Sarawak. It is not boiling over justs yet but it might be another reddened boil about to bursts.(A boil is a localized infection in the skin that generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm, hard, and tender. Eventually, the center of the boil softens and becomes filled with infection-fighting white blood cells from the bloodstream to eradicate the infection.

This we wrote earlier in reference to the above boil. It did not go down to well with some in PBB and we were made to believe and were even termed in so many words”like an enemy within” Did we make our feelings known? No we swallowed our saliva but we will not want to be a fool to go on a full cyberwar ahead.

Maybe the person in question forgot to read the small prints or we should have headlined it” Simple last night I seem to have been given this tasks through an extraordinary ”dream” that the CM Taib is asking me to give him a helping hand to FREE HIM FROM ALL THE OCTOPUS HANDS that is squeezing the daylights out of him. He looked so innocent but yet his cries of help are justs not answered and someone is controlling him to the maximum.

It was an extraordinary dream and honestly does he think that we are justs making it up to get to PBB? Politicians sometimes do forget where they start and it might justs be timely to remind them,”Don’t BURN THE BRIDGE when you have crossed it”

Our political brainstormers agreed as unanimously that  

The mosts common though would be”REMEMBER WHERE YOU CAME FROM

SPDP “Princess and Wings” Swift Response

This was in the local media.”Nansian had refuted a recent statement made by Puteri SPDP Barbara Mawan that there was nothing to rescue as Mas Gading was still with BN.

The SPDP Princess he said mentioned that MAS GADING needs to be rescued.What is there to be rescued? I suggest they rescue the losts seats of Krian an Ba’Kelalan.

The swift response to Nansians statement had the 4 wings members coming out in numbers (see picture) this evening and the SPDP Puteri Chief said that the 4 wings were unanimous in that they will defend all the 4 Parliamentary seats currently held by SPDP in Baram,Bintulu,Mas Gading and Saratok.

The enemy is not inside and the enemy is outside the party and our common enemy is at the moment DAP which is coming strong to wrestle the seat from SPDP. PKR is not even making any effort to claim the seat for the GE13.

We do not need to fight against each other as the G5 claims that they are BN members and we should think of how to bring more development and transform Mas Gading says Putera Deputy Chief Eugene Dior.

Deputy Wanita Chief Theresa Udam in a hard hitting PC against the G5 said “please tell us whether the BN SG has written to them officially as BN club members to name their candidate?

Puteri Chief Barbara continued by saying that the BN SG has written to SPDP headquarters and addressed to the President and SG that the names of the 4 candidates be submitted in two weeks time.

They don’t have “locus standi” and they are not officially named as BN Club are they asked Barbara when interviewed by audie61. On the issue of Mass resignation and cards the Vice President Narong who was also at the PC said”the G5 are not gentleman enough and the whole exercise of returning the card was very unethical”

According to a elder in the chinese community he told audie61,”we will support the candidate who will be put up by BN. Not everyone in MasS Gading is for DAP eventhough they perceived that the Chinese have made up their mind and will vote for opposition.

The SPDP wings are making the right signals and they know that the enemy is outside and their Princess swift response is an indication that they are not about to give in without a fight.

The 4 seats are SPDP’s and we intend it to be OURS and Barisan Nationals after GE13.

PRS”2nd Wave of Attacks”

Many phone calls were received by audie61 in the last few days on PRS saying about the ‘enemy within”

Some said,”you all know better and its time to reveal and go on full attack mode against PRS. The question remains,”Should we bother ourselves?” or “We wait and see

We have mentioned earlier,‘A victory for PRS is a victory for BN” and we are not about to rescind on our words

The skirmishes by the sidelines will surely engulf into a bigger war but as per the loyal supporters of PRS they said,”We thought we got the tooth fixed by getting rid of the recalcitrants but now we need really need to extract it fully.

Simply they say, as mosts chinese have been telling them,”we need to chop the headsnake off so that the smaller ones will be irrelevant and not fight back.”

Its all over the news in the print media and internet blogs and we are justs reposting what had happened. We leave it to those who still have REVENGE on their minds to STRIKE.

WE DO NOT WANT TO BE CAUGHT IN A CROSS-FIRE UNLESS……

This was extracted from an internet portal:-

KUCHING: Of late the Julau constituency in Sarawak is causing a lot of worries to Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), primarily because an old enemy is making an insidious comeback.

The MP for Julau parliamentary constituency is Joseph Salang Gandum. Salang won the seat in 1999 and is tipped to defend it again in the 13th general election. Salang is PRS vice-president and Information, Communication and Heritage Deputy Minister.

But a campaign within the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition to topple him appears to be in progress.

The PRS supreme council was yesterday briefed on these “prejudicial activities” which are allegedly being carried out by certain BN leaders to undermine Salang’s position.

Said PRS deputy president Joseph Entulu: “The activities of these leaders pose a serious threat to Salang and the party.

“From the ground reports that we have received, such activities are very unhealthy and none of the component parties in BN should do such backstabbing.”

Entulu, who is also the MP for Selangau and Regional and Rural Development Deputy Minister, urged the BN leadership to take note of their concern.

He said the meeting discussed the issue after party president James Masing warned that Julau might fall to the opposition because some BN leaders were giving covert support to a “certain party” planning to contest in the constituency.

“Julau could fall to the opposition if the BN component parties did not stop supporting the independent candidate in the coming general election,” Masing was quoted as saying.

Julau is one of six parliamentary seats allocated to PRS.

Insider help

Masing said he knew the group behind the campaign to unseat Salang but could not do anything about it.

“We have a serious threat in Julau from people within BN who want to go against Salang. We know it and we have reported it to the top BN leaders.

“It is not smart politics; it’s dirty politics,” Masing said.

While he did not name any individual or party, it is reliably learnt that he was referring to Wong Judat, who is Meluan assemblyman and his supporters from Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP).

It is not clear whether SPDP president William Mawan is also involved, although it is common knowledge that Mawan and Masing are not on friendly terms.

However, about 200 supporters of Judat and SPDP members were recently entertained to a dinner in Sarikei by former MP for Julau Sng Chee Hua, who is said to be returning to Julau to contest against Salang.

Although Judat was absent at the dinner, it is alleged that Judat has thrown his support behind Sng to contest against Salang, who they consider as their common “enemy”.

Judat was said to be angry over a RM3 million road project which was withdrawn by Salang and transferred instead to another area.

Salang believed that since the plan for the project was not ready, the money would have been returned to the Finance Ministry.

But instead of returning the money to the ministry, Salang suggested it be diverted to another road project. Salang’s arch rival

Judat refused to accept the explanation. He wanted Salang out of Julau as he is an “outsider”. Salang’s longhouse is in Bintangor, but his grandparents came from Julau.

As for Sng, Salang was his arch rival since the days of the defunct Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS) as both had eyed the deputy presidency of the party in the 2003 party election. Sng, however, was defeated.

Moreover, Sng, who won the Julau seat in 1995, was not nominated to defend the seat in the 1999 general election even though he won it with a majority of more than 10,000 votes. His place was taken by Salang.

Sng, who was the “big towkay” in PBDS, allegedly used money to buy votes.

In the coming election, Sng, if he is contesting, is expected to buy the votes of some 7,000 voters out of the 20,761-strong electorate (according to the 2011 electoral rolls).

Voting percentage in this Iban-majority constituency is around 70%.

According to sources, Sng has allegedly promised between RM500 and o RM1,000 per voter, and RM2,000 for each tuai rumah (longhouse chief).

“He needs about RM4 million to RM5 million to topple Salang,” said the sources.

In the 2004 general election, Sng financed Josephine Mawat to contest against Salang who stood on PBDS-BN ticket.

PBDS at that time was a component party of BN at the federal level, but an opposition at the state BN.

Vote-buying

Sng deployed various strategies such as organising ‘polling district competitions’ and ‘longhouse competitions’ to win votes.

Sng also depended heavily on the support of other BN component parties in the state and the use of state government facilities to ensure Mawat’s victory.

He even accused Salang of being a ‘Barisan palsu’ (fake) candidate.

On the polling district competitions, any polling district that gave Mawat the highest votes would receive a prize of RM300,000, while the second highest would receive RM150,000, and third RM100,000.

Likewise, any longhouse which gave her the highest votes would also receive monetary prize.

Despite all these efforts, Sng failed to unseat Salang who secured 8,388 votes as against 5,700 votes polled by Mawat – a majority of 2,688 votes.

Asked to comment on the current activities to unseat him, Salang said: “Don’t worry. I welcome his (Sng’s) challenge. This is democracy”.

This appeared in an English Daily Borneo Posts:-

KUCHING: Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) has used the phrase – ‘siapa makan chabi,  dia merasa pedas’ (loosely translated- those who eat chillies will taste the  hotness) to those who have sabotaged the party.

As such, PRS deputy president Datuk Joseph Entulu, without specifically  mentioning the party and the people concerned, had urged the culprit to stop  such unhealthy practice.

At a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Jalan Pending here  yesterday, Entulu had mentioned Julau as “very serious” as far as sabotaging PRS  is concerned.

He said the matter was debated at length during the party’s supreme council  meeting yesterday, which he himself chaired.

“To those who have sabotaged us, please stop such unhealthy practice.

“For us in PRS, we will not resort to such tactic and we want a similar  treatment,” Entulu, who is Selangau MP told the press conference.

Complaints from grassroots supporters

According to him, the culprit, whom he had also declined to disclose include  top Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders and a component BN party, adding that PRS had  received complaints from its grassroots supporters.

Asked which component party he is referring to, Entulu merely said: “We have  four component parties.”

The Deputy Minister of Rural and Regional Development said Barisan Nasional  (BN) top leadership had been notified and were now aware of the matter.

Yesterday, Masing had reportedly voiced similar problem, and cautioned that  Julau could fall to the opposition if the BN component parties did not refrain  from supporting the independent candidate in the coming general election.

Masing, who is Land Development Minister, noted that some members of BN  component parties were giving covert support to certain parties planning to  contest in the constituency.

PRS has five other parliamentary seats- Selangau, Kanowit, Hulu Rajang, Sri  Aman and Lubok Antu, and Entulu had hoped that no such tactic be deployed to all  the seats.

Meanwhile, Entulu said he is expecting a three-corner fight in his Selangau  constituency, but did not go into details.

 

BN/SPDP Puteri Chief “Doer with a Purpose.. !”

We are not about to heap praises on one who shows full dedication,commitment and responsibities and in return the person in question will be fed to the wolves by being the “STAR” for the moment.

There are some who seizes the opportunity to be in the limelight. While there are some who are in those places ,as they have already been given the “divine rights”. Those who climb from the backs of others and will certainly make it as they are politically tuned and are very ‘ruthless.” Many who joined political parties still lack these attributes and are justs ‘waiting for their golden egg or eggs.”

There are but a few who are very capable and command others with their charm and enthusiasm. One particular person who was PS to Jeffrey Kitingan by the name of Teresa Margerita Alberto stood out like a sore thumb to many in a leadership organisation in the 90s. She worked and talked in the same mould like a”Generator. She was bestowed this name as she was always thinking,manouvering and chasing for excellance.

We were privelege to cross swords and at that time I held very high esteem on Sabahans on their enthusiasm and forward looking minds. She was after all very infectious and those surrounding her were left gasping for air and playing ‘catch-up”if you are not up to it . She molded the group into thinking “lets do this,done this and about to do this” It was full trottle with little time for excuses.  This was also the time when we personally came across Jeffrey Kitingan her boss in  1994 in Thailand.

Then it strucked me as I embarked on this article. Its like a second wind coming but this time instead of blowing down from the Land below the wind it comes from the Land of Hornbills.Heaping praises without justification will only ‘drown a poor soul”.

The angle we approach is simple,”Both of them are similar in thoughts giving opportunities for those around them to excel,stand firm and be able to hold their own in a ‘dog eat dog’ world. The person in question now however is a Political figure and is SPDP Puteri chief Barbara Mawan who commands nearly 8000 puteris under her whose ages range from 18-35.

She seems to fit right into the moment and have taken the platform like a newly crowned olympic skater effortlessly going round on the on the icerink. She knows that arena of piercing eyed spectators will cut her to pieces if she makes the wrong move,falls flat on her face and will only endure ‘coldness’ and will not receive appreciation of flowers/bouquets if her skating routine is lackadaisical .

In the past few weeks she has started to be a DARLING WITH THE PRESS/MEDIA and she is sharp to put her ideas across. In our meetings with her she is being looked at as “catalyst for change for the youthful minds

What has been lacking for the ruling BN government up comes a new fresh faced and ever willing learner who doesn’t mind to put in the extra hours to better herself.

On April 1st we wrote and this is extracted,” The meeting opened up strongly with the Puteri Chief Barbara talking about ‘strategies off engagement,Tranfromation and Reaching out. She quoted how PM Najib has given the BN a believe that GE13 wll not be easy if we do not go on the ground ,communicate with the voters and prove that we are sincere.

SPDP she says needs to ‘REACH-OUT to the young and not let the young reach out to us and we need to understand them, be with them and think like them. She also quoted what the CM said at the recent TGM,”The youths nowadays are varying all options and they THINK what is bests for them.”

We can see clearly what she wants and how she wants it to be done. Something on the sidelines are that she seems to be practising Sun Tzu Art of War as she mentioned she is an avid reader and will try to improve not only herself but those who have time to engage with her.”

Todays newspapers which the press quoted in an English daily reflects her true self and she is not about to make anyone push the party to the sidelines. She knows that the party needs to move forward and she is singled out by many to be a “BREADTH OF FRESH AIR” for the Youth .

She has shown her sincerity,enthusiasm and has taken upon herself and her team to be the new SPDP engine of change by transforming the mindsets while not stepping on ‘delicate”elders/veterans. She is ever so willing to learn and listen but imparts to the youthful minds within SPDP in the way they want to be told to do and want to be engaged in.

She has shown to stand strong behind the party going through 9 years of good and bad times in SPDP. The youth and the party recognises her development process and with the party engulf in serious infighting for the lasts two years she has given the party a much needed boost. Their membership drive in bringing in newer and fresh faced youths in the puteri wings and also assisted her counterpart in the putera wing is a plus sign which my friend from Sabah would be very proud of.

Surely,their paths will crossed one day and it will only benefit the SPDP Puteri chief as our friend Teresa had served under a giant of a man in Sabah politics in the person of Jeffrey Kitingan. Wonder what they will talk about and on what subject?

Both are afterall DOERS with a Purpose..

Sometimes We wish but Sometimes I wish…..!!

Sometimes we wish we could sing like the singers who make our hair stand on ends at the back of our necks. Sometimes I wish I was one of them. Sometimes it gets to me when I try to express myself. It gets harder when we are so engrossed writing almost everything connected with the world of politics.

Sometimes we wish we could justs make ends meet with our voices. But we wish is different from whats in store for us out there in the beautiful and yet wicked world. Sometimes we wish that our friends are not so brutal and cruel to enjoy our failures but thats the way the world works.It’s music to their ears when your wish fails you.

Sometimes we wish we could justs cry aloud and its politics again I’m afraid “We are BN but people will still point to us and say Your wish is not my concern and you are more pro-Pakatan. On the flip side we can say we are Pakatan but the truth of the matter our wish never materialises and we are termed a Trojan Horse.”

Sometimes we wish the singers could belt out everyday singing songs like “what a beautiful world and “I dreamed a dream” But its not always the case and our wishes will always disappoint us and we justs need to perservere and keep faith that our wishes will come true.

Sometimes we wish someone will justs recommend us for better jobs,promotions and assist us with all the sincereties of being a friend and not a foe. Sometimes I wish will not always be the case as we are not of same fathers or mothers. The world always deals us something unexpected and when our wishes are all but gone up in smoke the wish will return in a different form.

Will our wish justs happen that way?

Sometimes we wish we could do without the politics that is happening in our beloved land Malaysia. We wish but I wish is so much different as it throws a whole new perspective to what is really happening. We wish as majority are all but on the safe side and are not ready justs for wholesome changes. Sometimes I wish will not necessarily happen overnight as being minority we need to catch the wave until it turns to a tsunami.

Sometimes we wish will not happen the way we want but what sometimes I wish could just materialise as the wish might justs be a simple”I wish everything works today”

Sometimes we wish our friends will not say this after reading this,”He has gone cuckoo” but the sometimes I wish justs happens and it will come back to haunt our friend as the wish might just fall on their knees .HERE IT COMES… This is justs a destressing piece when sometimes we wish and I wish doesn’t always happen.

We wish could sometimes work but not always and I wish more than always works but only those little wishes but the big ones might take a little more time.

 Are you still following me?

Hope you are ,as this is written without even having a script or second thoughts as it happens when I wished the bests for you in whatever may come your way.

 Sometimes we wish but sometimes I wish you are all TRUE and SINCERE friends.

But do we really care if you are not after reading this?

You justs said it,”Blimey,He is Crazy..Wish that was real though …

MPs Billy Abit and Ahmad Zahid on Cyber..!

The last few months have been nothing short of hectic for both these politicians. Both of them have different AGENDAS.

 However  on cyber/social media they are One (1)

Billy Abit Joo MP since 1990 is fighting to get renominated by his party PRS where he is a Vice President. His President James Masing has clearly said and we extract the quote,” A good leader must be able to read the writing on the wall, and monitor the feelings of party members“You must always ask yourselves this question; do they still want me? Please never overstay your welcome, for if you do, it will have tragic consequences for the party including yourselves,”

Ahmad Zahid elected in 1995 is in his 4th term and GE13 will be going for his 5th term. He is currently the Minister of Defence assuming the posts vacated by PM Najib Razak. As Vice President of UMNO he had mentioned in a bernama report that ,”Elements of sabotage in the last general election must stop to ensure victory for Umno candidates in the 13th general elections.

Moreover he did not mince his words as he was quoted and we extract here,”But what is worrying the top leadership are those division warlords who insist that they are picked as candidates regardless, and this will lead to problems.

“A general who is armed with a sharp sword will lose a battle if he has no soldiers to back him up. For this reason, we must have an army behind us, apart from the support of all.

He said a study revealed that good candidates could contribute 31 per cent to victory, and solving internal problems would contribute more than 50 per cent.

He stressed, other than the need to give full support to candidates picked by the top leaderships, the members must forget personal interests.

Billy Abit and Ahmad Zahid  will be hoping that both of them will still be renominated on a BN ticket going into the GE13. It will not be much of a problem for the Minister of Defence to be renominated unless he decides otherwise due to reasons which might be personal.

 Billy however has already been told in so many words and he has no choice but justs ,”Lawan Tauke” and see who is the bigger “Tawke” who will be backing him up.

Zahid knows the importance of cyber and he like Billy knows that influence of the new media such as the blogs, twitter and Facebook, were seen as contributing to the rejection of BN in the last elections. Billy has sound advice for his people and he knows his people the Orang Ulu Youths will stand behind him also to be renominated.

Both can do so much only and both have made their case known for the BETTER GOOD of Barisan National.

Will both be renominated as candidates ..?

This we extract from an internet portal on cyber by Ahmad Zahid Hamidi:-

Umno vice-president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the Barisan Nasional machinery is ready to fight in the cyber world to garner support in the coming general election.

However, Ahmad Zahid said that BN would not adopt the opposition tactics of using slander against the opposition leaders.

“Our party machinery through the new media is prepared to fight off all the baseless allegations made and give the right explanation and information to the people,” the defence minister was quoted as saying in Utusan Malaysia.

“The opposition has no other way but to find issues that will tarnish the image of the national leaders in the cyberworld. We will not follow the opposition’s tactics to use slander,” he said.

Ahmad Zahid also wanted all BN leaders at all levels to be prepared for the opposition attacks, especially as the general election approaches.

He urged the opposition not to adopt such underhanded tactics, but to fight maturely by promising and implementing what they had promised in their manifesto
