SUPP President Peter Chin’s own words at SWP. It’s simple,clearcut and does not need a thinking brain to explain further. PRS a BN coalition have to thank SUPP their ally for landing a good right hand JAB to SWP at the most crucial time before the GE13.
seems to be the tactic used by the newly formed SWP(Sarawak Workers party) as it tries to make inroads into the BN/PRS held seats.
These words from the Prime Minister Najib on SWP ,””illogical, irrational and non-consistent” and also CM Taib and also Assistant Minister Karims statement which appeared in Borneo Posts have not made any impressions on the party. Their members when met are still going round and informing those voters in the 6 areas that they are BN-Friendly and are the alternative to PRS for good governance.
The statement from PRS Deputy President of PRS, incumbent and Deputy Minister who has thrown a challenge to Larry Sng to come to Selangau to contest have met with immediate response.
Our source says,”Will Datuk Sng just let Entulu get away with it.?”
One thing he says with Datuk Sng it is “money talks bullshit walks” and you only need to convince to move the authorities concern. Take the water piping issue for 18 longhouses which is now commissioned in Pasai Siong by SWP.
LIES OR TRUTH..!!
Did the water authorities get confuse when SWP said that they are BN-Friendly? PRS needs answers and they need to do their own investigative works. The message by SWP is simple. Find the weakest link in the incumbents seemingly inpenetrable fortress.
They have acheived their aim.It seems that the incumbent MP Entulu was really rattled as the 18 longhouses within the Selangau Constituency constitute to above 1500 voters.
Entulu is under siege and he needs to work harder than before as in previous elections it was more like a “walk in the park”This time Entulu will not only be faced with SWP but also PKR and plus a number of independants.
Entulus man when contacted,”we will get to the bottom of it and will work out the contingencies.”
Our source says,”water for votes ” and surely BN/PRS will find it tough going as PEOPLE will be convince when SWP says water is their source of life. PRS needs to work even harder if this is the truth and we know BN top guns will come down hard on Entulu to ensure that this seat stays with BN and not otherwise.
ENTULU KNOWS WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE….
There was a lot of “hurrahs’ and ‘yeahs” when Larry Sng’s application to join BN direct candidate was turned down at the BN supreme Council Meeting. That was Yesterday as far as Taib Mahmud the CM was concerned. Yesterday Taib kept his lips to himself and he knows that the BN supreme council was not the avenue for him to be trapped.
Yesterday too the report was,”The decision not to accept him(Sng)was unanimous and his case was not even debated by all component parties “said the source. Many even questioned as to why Taib Kept quiet?
Simple,”just wait till we get back home to Sarawak guys”
Today:-meaning all “hell broke loose” even at the teh tarik and kolok mee stalls that Taib has given ‘lifeline” to the young man.The mass-media/newspapers throughout Sarawak published and Taib was quoted as saying ,”he plans to keep Assistant Minister Larry in the Chief minister’s office for some time. BN Sarawak chairman Taib said Sng is useful to the government and loyal to BN.
He went on to say,”I can still keep him because he’s a very useful fellow. He works very well and his loyalty to BN is unquestionable.”
“The Headline Reads” CM to keep Pelagus rep“
A political analysts said,”There is a very strong statement and a hidden message behind what Taib has done.” If reading it correctly Taib is sending a well meant statement that he is still the one holding the PEN in Sarawak. He oversees the candidates lists and he will make the final decision.No one disturbs and interferes in Sarawak candidates lists. Anyone can cry and try to lobby but he is the ultimate signatory when it involves BN Sarawak.
Tomorrow,”which CM has not decided yet as he has not reached his final decision many are saying Larry will be fielded in Pelagus and its a slap to the face of PRS.
Is it true.? No Way…
CM has been thinking what lies ahead for Larry TOMORROW but he has not decided just yet. An emeritus professor said,”we have jumped the gun as CM only said Sng is useful to the government and loyal to the BN.”
There are many possibilities and Tomorrow he might say,”let’s make Larry an Ambassador to New Zealand or …………………..” and everyopne will be happy and there will be many more hurrahs and everyone will be too happy and forget about Larry Sng in this coming State Elections. Another feather in the cap for Taib as he balances his house very well.
So goes the saying,”you win today,Tomorrow is another different day while Yesterday is justs history”
Let us not justs keep ourselves in the box and lets look forward and look beyond what lies ahead for Sarawak and its people.
An extract from an internet blog on similar subject” Now, back in Sarawak, Taib said that Larry Sng is still relevant and is needed as he is”a strong Barisan supporter and worked very hard”! What now then? Is Taib stance not a defiance to the ruling made in KL just 48 hours ago? Well, brace for it PRS! Its Taib territory and there is no messing around.Taib is not interested in what the top leader in BN KL had to say on Sarawak affair, period! Be very afraid!
Remember,’ The Pen is still here in BN Sarawak
The doors are slowly closing on Larry Sng as he fights for his political lifeline. According to our source the BN Supreme Council has put their foot down and has rejected “outright Larry’s application to stand as a direct BN candidate.It was unanimously agreed.
It seems that there are only four options available for Larry.
- 1. He will have to stand as INDEPENDANT.If he wins joins any of the BN component parties like others before him.
- 2. He will need to join any other 2 other component party and hope that they FIND him a seat. PBB is a distant dream for Larry unless they make an “option” which is very unlikely.
- 3. Go back and “kowtow” to James Masing and PRS hoping he will be accepted back in the spirit of BN.
- 4.Leave BN and join Parti Keadilan Rakyat.
An informed source even went as far as saying he does have a Fairy God-Mother who will make sure there is a seat available for him. It’s a decision Larry will need to make and as far as his political lifelife is concerned he himself knows bests.

End of saga
BN Supreme Council Meeting has decided not to accept partyless Larry Sng as BN direct candidate
KUCHING: The political saga surrounding partyless Larry Sng has taken a new twist – he is not accepted as Barisan Nasional (BN) direct candidate to defend the Pelagus seat in the coming state election.
According to an inside source, the decision was made during Friday’s BN Supreme Council meeting in Kuala Lumpur chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, and attended by all BN component parties.
The source said the decision was made based on a provision in BN that “any party member who has been sacked cannot enter through the back door.”
All leaders of the four state BN component parties were present during the meeting with Najib, including Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, who is also state BN chairman.
“The decision not to accept him (Sng) was unanimous and his case was not even debated by all the BN component parties,” said the source.
Sng has been partyless since 2008 after he was sacked by Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) for insubordination.
BN Supreme Council Meeting has decided not to accept partyless Larry Sng as BN direct candidate.
However, he is now holding three portfolios in the state cabinet – Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office, Assistant Minister of Youth Affairs and Training of Youth, and Assistant Industrial Development Minister (Training).
Sng, however, could not be reached for comments yesterday.
The 31-year-old, who made headlines in 2001 as the state’s youngest assemblyman, had said previously he would leave it to the BN top leadership to decide his political future.
There were also speculations that he could be accepted into Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) or Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) to be fielded in either Meradong or Meluan.
However, both SUPP president Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan and SPDP president Dato Sri William Mawan have downplayed such suggestions.
The coming of age of the footsoldiers turned into Generals will be very influential in this battle of 2011 Sarawak State elections. 1987 and 1991 has come and gone and twenty years on the remnants of PBDS are now emerging out of their shells. They have been bruised,suppressed,humiliated and left to fend on their own.Some have even stayed under cover of the BN masters but they know now its time to strike back.
Whats their argument? Nothing against Taib and his cronies personally but they know the time is ripe to come out fighting and gather back what is theirs and will not be pushed into submission. They have learnt without fuss what and how BN have used many methods and ways to stay in power. Now mosts of them are turning to a new Alliance and sees a new drift of fresh wind coming across from the Peninsular and images of People Power emerging also from the Middle East.
Even warlords are coming out claiming that they will be financing 15 of their own candidates. The 15 seats won in 1987 by the now defunct PBDS is being used to draw encouragement and a new hope for a new government and new alliance. SNAP can claim 28 seats but a former BN strongman who has since left said by all accounts its 32 dayak majority areas.
DAP will take on SUPP and is quietly confident of pushing their numbers up from the 6 assemblyman they have now to even doubling their numbers. Unless and if the SUPP leaders are still thinking that they are secured they will be in for a surprise. Did the Sibu episode teach SUPP a thing or two?
Seriously, the opposition members in Sarawak have used the technological advances to their advantage and the Election Commission members are even caught off guard. The GPRS tracking bar code system is cleverly being used to even monitor any irregularities. Clever but many have underestimated their usefulness and many elderly politicians are still thinking they can find a way around these technology.
God Help them if they keep thinking like that…!
The groundwork is already being laid down and even the usage of tough, fearless and hard man are been met with the long elongated twin barrels of steel facing their faces. This time they are ready and will use what they have learnt to mobilise their own man not to be intimidated or fear whatever is brandished on them.
It is unusually quiet in the Malay/Melanau areas as the dayaks will not want to be left into a false hope of PKR winning their allocated seats. Permas in 1987 promised so much and yet only delivered 5 seats and if only DAP was as strong as it is now the former PBDS members said,”I will not be here talking to you. We have come a long way and mosts of us are now in our fifties which is just appropriate for a final assault”
DAP and SNAP are at bests working the minds and hearts of the people to accept them and turn it into votes and not false promises. In 1987 a dayak leader said,”We were left to rue what could have been and 1991 we suffered after a good showing. PKR will need to look closely at what they have and where they can deliver instead of being the “TAIKO” he said.
Even the warlord he said does not particularly take him too kindly as he was very much branded an “Anti-Chinese” The brand of politics then mind you he described it was dayakism but we have moved on and sees it now that our people needs to vote their own as the assemblyman. Its a fight of different ideologies,party lines and who will win the hearts and mind of the people to turn to Votes. Is this wrong?
He even used Liverpools resurgence to Kenny Dalglish who they think has the charisma to turn the team around.The supporters of Liverpool has suddenly found faith in the team and with the victory against multi-millionaires Chelsea at their home ground no one can be underestimated. Even Liverpool Manager for now said lets take each game as it comes along. Do you see it ..??
15 seats we talk about we will and must deliver and the BN will not know what hit them. It’s a million dollar question and the greed and arrogance shown by Taibs closest family will eventually take Taib himself down and out of the equation.
Even PRS and SPDP are looking over their shoulders and some PBB assemblyman looks confident outwardly but deep down they know they are in for a tough battle. They have looked after their people but by being virtue of being human beings they can change in an instant. The connected ones within BN are fearful that they will lose all if the modest 15 seats passed the simple majority of 36.
The modest 15 seats looks easily achievable and with the mood of the people especially very unhappy with the ‘grabbing of land” Taib might do well if he clamps down and look at WHERE THE SPARKS will come from.
Could it come from the Kapit dayak hinterland.?? The demise of PBDS many shed a tear or two but they moved on.
We have earlier covered this subject and click on to read further with some other add ons:-
The 15 seats mutiplied and added on will just easily surpassed the 42 grey areas which the SB has been indicating in their reports. BN must know that the downtrodden has woken up and paid heavily for their lessons and are ready to serve the peeople with a breadth of fresh air to take their places amongst the ruling government.
BN needs to take steps to ensure that the people are still with them and they must not let everything to chance as it will mean a step nearer the end for them. The 71 BN candidates will face a challenge which will determine the fate of the BN government of Sarawak. They now will need eyes behind their backs and much more in meticulously looking at operational details with care and attention and briefed of the slightest movement in the opposition camp.
The opposition knows the mood of the people is with them and a modest 15 seats is within reach.
Did we not say the foot soldiers have gained tremendously..??Or Will they be extinguished even before the battle begins….?
FANCY THIS..Isn’t this just great?
Senior Sng with his band of brothers meeting Anwar in Kuching at the Grand Continental for Breakfast while Junior Sng partyless but a true blue BN assemblyman meets up with PM at the Marriot in Miri sweating it out and needing to carefully pick his words to stay relevant for the BN. What did he Whisper..??
The comments from the article which has been uploaded is enough to make one think.
Broken Foot:-It cannot be denied that Anwar has every right to have breakfast with any one he chooses. More so it is done in the glare public. He must also remember he is the ‘defacto’ head of a political organisation. Thus he’s every move is watched by both sides of the political divide. Rumors are bound to spread. In the Malaysian context, most rumours has turned out to be true.
Sarawakian_3ff9:- Anwar should be aware that Sng is a die-hard opportunist who never miss a chance to promote himself and his son Larry. And in the process, he doesn’t give a damn whom he step over. His fingerprints are all over whenever the party he was involved in ended up in shamble. He doesn’t mind footing the bill as long as he is handsomely rewarded. He’s still buddy-buddy with many figures in the BN because of business opportunities. I won’t touch him with a six-foot pole.
audie61 made a number of calls after receiving a number of smses many of which with similarities,”What do you think of the breakfast meeting.?” One staunch Anwar ally for now said,”Sng always does that and he will wait for Anwar and impose himself” while another analysts said,”He wants to win no matter what happens and will do whatever to protect himself and family at the expense of others.
Blood is thicker than water and don’t believe when people say that son and father are not on talking terms.”
Once a Party President even said to a friend ,’These type of people are in short supply and no matter what you have to respect their actions and making opportunities work in their favour. They are useful in times of Chaos and penetrating the enemies fortress and they will not even BLINK an eye when its done.
DID BOTH SNG’s TELL YOU WHAT THEY “BISIK…??”
The smiles which has been appearing on Larry Sngs supporters in Pelagus must have more or less been extinguished by not only the PRS Pelagus members but also the whole PRS machinery. Last weekend Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) Pelagus division has come out strong by insisting that Pelagus constituency needs a new elected representative from within the party. Not a day goes by without someone mentioning the drama of Pelagus Seat.
Today,even before he goes on an official trip to Mongolia the PRS President gave a strong statement which has appeared in a local daily. He said,”we are firm on this issue .We will not allow anyone from outside the party to represent PRS in Pelagus,least of all a direct BN candidate as we have more than enough qualified people to represent us there.”
We will field only a PRS-sanctioned candidate for Pelagus.Currently the party has identified at least two or perhaps more potential candidates for the seat.”stressed Masing. Masing went on to say that Sng’s current political predicament was no longer PRS’s problem.
A political source said,”Fair enough but questions why Masing had to say this,”It is only right that Pelagus which is an Iban majority seat be represented by an Iban from PRS.?” Will this not open up a can of worms and it might just land on his lap..?
He should have just concentrated on making the seat as a PRS quota in the BN consensus agreement but not touching the racial aspects. He needs not be reminded,does he on how and who lobbied for Senior Sng in the good old days.?He continued,”Don’t be too Obsessed that the real issue of the party’s seat is losts through missing the target.”
Junior Sng remains a favourite with CM Taib and only when the lists is announced after the BN coalition has vetted the candidates will we all know whether Sng will still be in Pelagus or be moved to avoid further controvesies before or after the elections.
