Yesterday we were informed that “threats were directed at a SC member” and apparently his body language and actions showed it as a man living under political stress.
The source mentioned that the words uttered were ,”At the rate you are going better think of your career and your family and not politics. In politics they are also an “ugly side.” This is a friendly advice.”
SO WHAT DOES “UGLY SIDE” MEAN PLEASE ENLIGHTEN US..??
It does seem that the SG of the party was quick to act and these words which appeared at the STAR newspapers he used,”It was truly a serious act of defiance and disrespect” seems like they are not taking things lightly and are SHARPENING THEIR KNIVES FOR THE KILL…
A blogger went further to questioned the SG and his comrades.? This we extract from the site ”
You have the courage to tell the world on what actually happened – i.e. the Supreme Council did agree on the admission!
Not ONCE but TWICE!
And the second one was infront of Adenan!
But when one man, yes One Man, suddenly said he disagree, all hell broke loose!
Why did any Supreme Council member who disagree don’t say it loud and clear in front of Adenan?

while the STAR article we extract fully below:-
SPDP leaders have been reminded to abide by Chief Minister’s directive telling them to stop public bickering, in light of a recent statement by party’s deputy info chief claiming that those who were against the re-admission of the four sacked assemblymen,
MIRI: SPDP secretary-general Datuk Nelson Balang Rining ( pic) has reprimanded deputy information chief Churchill Edward for openly defying the gag order imposed on party leaders.
“It was truly a serious act of defiance and disrespect,” he said in reference to a public statement issued by Churchill, who is also Muara Tuang SPDP secretary, on Monday stating that those who opposed the move to readmit the four sacked assemblymen, had ulterior motives against party president Tan Sri William Mawan.
Balang, who is also Lawas SPDP chairman, said the gag order was personally imposed by Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem in his capacity as state Barisan Nasional chairman, and as such it should be obeyed without question,
“I am shocked that he (Churchill) issued such a statement when there is already a gag order imposed on us by the Chief Minister. Why the need for him to issue such a statement to the press? The Chief Minister had warned us against indulging in public quarrelling.
“Issuing a public statement like this is not going to help us resolve our internal problems. I hope there would be no more of such defiance, or else the problems in the party would deteriorate even further,” he said, stressing that no one in SPDP should defy any gag order.
Churchill in his statement said the readmission of the four assemblymen — Datuk Sylvester Entri (Marudi), Rosey Yunus (Bekenu), Paulus Gumbang (Batu Danau) and Datuk Peter Nansian (Tasik Biru) — had actually been endorsed by the supreme council.
He also said the group which opposed the re-admission had kept silent and did not protest when it could have.
“They had in fact clapped their hands at the CM’s office where Mawan accepted the membership forms from the four to rejoin SPDP,” he was quoted as having said on Monday.
The four assemblymen were part of Group of Five (G5), which included former Mas Gading MP Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe, who were sacked by SPDP in late 2011 for alleged gross misconduct and acting against party interest.
The four were last month readmitted into SPDP following the advice of Adenan who wanted to see the party becoming one again so that it would be strong enough to face the next state elections.
However shortly after that, SPDP deputy president Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing criticised Mawan for readmitting the four without first consulting the grassroots and without calling for an extraordinary general meeting.
Soon after, a joint statement, said to have been submitted by “30 divisions”, was issued in Kuching urging for Mawan to explain the decision, which it said had contravened a 2012 AGM resolution that barred the four from returning to the party.
Last week, Adenan issued a gag order on all SPDP leaders, telling them to stop their public bickering.
Balang declined to comment on the merits of Churchill’s statement, saying that would also be tantamount to an open defiance against the gag order.
He said whoever wanting to express their views should wait until a proper forum was convened by the party leadership, where they would be free to have their say.
He said SPDP supreme council had already issued notices to convene the party’s emergency supreme council meeting in Kuching on April 26.
Meanwhile, a senior SPDP leader who is opposed to the readmission of the four, yesterday told The Star that Churchill’s statement did not reflect the stance of the supreme council as a whole.
“There was a verbal opposition to the readmission even among the supreme council members. There was no black and white that said the supreme council members had unanimously approved the move to readmit the four.”
Attempts to get comments from Tiong, who is also Prime Minister’s special envoy to Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, has proven futile.
