Bersih 2.0 Mania..”Sabah BN Over-Confidence..??”

BUGI WIJAYA WRITES

As the nation is gripped in the BERSIH mania, in Sabah BN is embarking on something bolder which is the increase of electricity tariff.  Bugi Wijaya of audie61 writes from Sabah and we understand that on the day of BERSIH, PATROIT and PERKASA rally on the 09.07.2011 (Saturday), an announcement will be made that the state government has agreed to the increase of electricity tariff by the Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) to reduce the dependency on Federal Government subsidies in the tariff.

Bugi Wijaya reliability learned that a last minute dialogue session was called by the Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman with the captains of the various industries on this matter today.  However, the dialogue session turn out to be more of a pre-announcement of the tariff increased to those present.

It was believed despite being told that the increase is not a wise move business strategically and politically, the Chief Minister replied that the increase was inevitable in view of the ever increasing cost of energy productions.  To Musa’s credit, the last increase of tariff was about 25 years ago.

A quick survey on the ground shows that a lot of people believe that the state government would not allow an increase at such economical climate at the moment.  A check with other BN components parties revealed some of them were not consulted on this matter.  This was the unilateral decision of the state government as such matter are the perogative of the government and not component parties.

One leader remarked with the inconsistent supply in Sandakan that has seen blackout a frequent way of life for the local people, it would be interesting whether they can defend their strong hold seats.

Maybe this is the sign of weakness of the opposition in Sabah that the government is allow to do things at their whims and fancy.  Thus would this so call announcement be seized upon by the opposition or would it be buried among the BERSIH news or worse case scenario for BN, that is the start of the lost of BN safe deposit?

We will see soon enough.  Meanwhile, our hats off for the man in charge, for better or worse the CM’s head is on the chopping block.

WELL..YOU HAVE THE POWER IN YOUR HANDS…

Bersih 2.0 “Sabah style…!!”

Bugi Wijaya sent us this picture which was taken in front of Suria Sabah Shopping Mall at 2.00pm where some youths were seen demonstrating. Copycats not in yellow headband shows that there are in fact “police cadets” acting so that the FRU personnels will be able to handle the situation when the need arises.

There are some programmes being planned to coincide with the ‘Bersih 2.0″ in Sabah and according to our source SAPP Sabah will be cashing in on the event and the date to ensure that the people of Sabah that they are also fighting for electoral reforms. The event will be held at the party headquarters and it is reliably learnt that the FRU personnels will be at the premises on Saturday. 

Bugi Wijaya was also informed that some Pakatan leaders from Sabah are already in the Federal Capital whilst the Pakatan youths are the only ones which will be around in Sabah to participate in an illegal assembly. A veteran political observer said to Bugi Wijaya” This clearly shows that the Pakatan leaders are not interested in the local issues and by leaving it to the youths it will make BN Sabah realised the 2/3rds will be achievable again when the State elections are called. It’s like the masters have called and they are succumbing and bending their knees.”

SAPP a “nyamuk” party would get the limelight in the next day papers if DAP/PKR/PAS Sabah leaders are not in Sabah. The staged demonstration shows that the Police and authorities are not taking anything lightly and they will take the necessary steps to prevent any untoward incidents from happening in the State of Sabah.

DAP “Speechless….ATHEIST OK Bah.!!”

The country’s civil servants are now taking the brunt of politicians and general public at large from trying to push their message across in terms of scholarships,race and religion.

Malaysians have grown up no doubt and while we grow up they will be many obstacles which the country will faced.  Some good laws, some obsolete laws while some needs to be revised and looked into by our parliamentarians and state legislators. 50 years for a country to put everything in order is indeed a very short time.

Not all things will be fair to the naked eye but obviously the people who implement and deliver what the policy holders deliberate must also know that there are a lot of ‘sensitive issues which must be dealt with amicably”.

Malaysia is a multi racial,multi cultural and multi religious country where Malays,Chinese,Indians,Kedazans,Ibans and other ethnic races live together and surely they will be differences but we accept that we need to live peacefully in accordance with the Federal constitution. If we move slightly away from its origin

“TROUBLE WILL ENSUE

We are not about to lecture the DAP on this issue but we need to address this issue by angling it correctly instead of politiking on it.  Yea,DAP is a political party we know and without a doubt its like scoring points 1 Up to the gallery. We all know too you are doing your job by publicising it but one must remember this is a highly sensitive issue.

Lets take up my case and see whether I make sense or not. We all were young once,brash,radical rebellious and at times uncontrollable. I do come from a staunch Catholic background and when we were young we followed everything our parents threw at us in accordance to our faith and the many no no’s which are ‘blasphemy’ if we break them. I confessed my sins every month without failed. If I did not I imagined I will be attacked by the “devil and his followers

Religious festivals,prayers were all kept in checked. Sunday Masses were a must and all attempts were made not to miss them. When the boy grew up thats me coming from overseas the boy changed to a man and started questioning. I stopped going to church on Sundays and even had a good ‘three hours session being lectured” with my uncle who was parish priest  of St Josephs at that time in 1984. He is still a Priest but now the Parish priest of Blessed Sacrement BDC in Kuching Sarawak. (you have my permission to asks him) At the end of the blistering and hard counselling I was given a chance to speak.

I said to him in front of my dad. Why should I go to Church? It doesn’t make me any holier than thou.? I also said Why was I not given a choice of religion? Why was I baptise to the faith? Then I could see the anger and the astonishment from their eyes.

My dad replied,” Oh Yeah, when you are born if we know you are going to be like that we might as well save the money spent on milk for a better purpose(Want to know the exact words.We might just as well KILL YOU or starve you and leave you for DEAD. no need to waste the duit susu  ).See whether you could be like what you are today” Today I see it. Our parents wants the bests for us. They can give us a religion to follow but in the end its up to us to CONTINUE PRACTISING IT. We have our own choices but its up to us.

As for the DAP Komtar assemblyman he is trying to do the bests for his child but it could be a genuine mistake and it also could be put right by seeing the officer in charge. We also do not know what really transpire between him and the NRD clerk on duty. Do you know what actually happen..?? Was the CCTV on??

I must say when I changed my IC earlier this year I tested the NRD lady. Of course I was cheeky and naughty and she took it. She was putting the RACE in my IC I said,” Rojak.. she said,”cannot ..how come I said mixed blood so I put Sino/Melanau.  She changed to Chinese so I took it eventhough my name had an extra name behind( ….. curious dbl click here)

{The only reason why I changed my old IC was that the immigration officer in Sabah when I entered say this is the last time we allow you to use the old IC and now we have Mycard.

I have a tendency to love to go against the system to tests it fully and I was reminded by the former Home Minister who said,”we can still use the old IC until such time it outlived its usage and will be obsolete. I remember telling the officer I am after all a Malaysian with or without a Mycard. He accepted and after trying my luck in and out of Sabah a number of times it I might just run out of LUCK and I could be turned back to Sarawak for reasons like being a ‘ bad element/hat“. So I became a good boy again. Really…!!!  :p

Next it came to Religion I put ATHEIST . { One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods} She said sure or not and I said alright. She doubled checked everything before she put into the system and I asks her NICELY AND COURTEOUSLY boleh kah repeat?

I said not Atheist but a Catholic. I have a choice to lie and should even have capitalised on the system if I wanted while the little girl had no choice.Parents up and down the country will no doubt look into this matter now more seriously and carefully.

To be Speechless I don’t think so. Stand up and be Corrected.Help and assists to put it right more like it YB. We have already told you that Malaysia is still very much a young country and we need to help our civil service at times too. The laws that govern the country can be put right through the proper channels and through the Legislative houses i.e in Parliament.  The laws might be outdated and thats why you are in position to asks your colleagues in Parliament to do something about it. We told Hannah Yeoh your Selangor DAP YB too and the same goes for you.

 NO USE TO BISING(shout) LIKE THIS

WE HEAR YOU…………..    

Below:-The internet portal article which has created a STIR  but the Bersih 2.0 rally on the 9th July 2011 seems to have overshadowed it all.

More cases of rejected attempts by parents to register their children with the National Registration Department as ‘Anak Malaysia’ have poured in.

NONEThe latest case is that of Komtar assemblyperson Ng Wei Aik (right), who was dealt the same fate as his counterpart in Kuala Lumpur Hannah Yeoh yesterday when he registered the birth of his second daughter Ng Caryn.

Caryn, born on June 11, was registered by her parents as “Anak Malaysia” for race and “Belum Ada (none yet)” for religion.

But when the official birth certificate was issued to Ng, the two sections were written as “Chinese” for race and “Buddha” for religion.

Ng, who is political secretary to the Penang chief minister, is “speechless” that the NRD, without consultation and without his approval, has chosen the race and religion of his own child.

Rather than blaming the officer, Ng targetted his complaint squarely at NRD’s rigid system, expressing disbelief that his child was “ordained” a Buddhist when he clearly stated that she does not yet have a religion.

He was equally upset that Chinese was chosen as the child’s race instead of Anak Malaysia.

“Why should she decide this for me? This is a serious matter…why we cannot have a choice for our own children, to register them as Anak Malaysia without a religion yet,” he said.

“This is the spirit of 1Malaysia and should be encouraged. Our future generation should have the liberty and freedom to decide their own race and religion,” he added.

Appealing against NRD’s ‘unethical act’

Responding to a Malaysiakini article yesterday highlighting that the NRD issued birth certificates without the ethnicity of the child between 1996 and 2000, Ng said it was not necessary to state those two elements.

The issue of ethnicity in birth certificate registration and other official forms was raised after Yeoh, Subang Jaya MP, failed to register her daughter’s race as ‘Anak Malaysia’ earlier this month.

Like in Ng’s case, the NRD officer rejected the parents’ request and chose ‘Chinese’ as the race of their daughter Shay Adora Ram.

The NRD has clarified that the race of the child must stem from either parent in a mixed marriage and that no ‘mixed-race’ registration is allowed.

Though he recognizes that he is ethnically Chinese, Ng still thinks he should be given the choice to select his own race as Anak Malaysia.

He said he was appealing against the “unethical act” of the NRD officer who, when asked, told him that a child must be registered according to the father’s or mother’s race and religion.

“Our system is outdated and corrupt until there is no flexibility for us to decide our own faith and religion,” he said.

“I do not want to force my future generation to follow my race and religion…I do not want them to be like (those) who did not have a choice before” he added.

SUPP “Dead Man Walking.!!”

SUPP has had too much infighting and also the bad blood spilled has not healed and the urban voters have not forgotten the episode. Its not only the Chinese voters but also the natives who sees that their representatives are given ‘raw deals” especially been so loyal to the party. From the boardrooms to the coffeshops mosts Sarawakians are already saying,”SUPP is living on borrowed time and it will not be long before it will be “wiped out”. Mosts of the leaders are seen to be like “Dead Man Walking” as the party itself is directionless with the veteran leaders still hanging on and clinging on to past glories etched in history.

The news media and the internet blogs have been harping on SUPP as “Times out” but still the leaders are so persistent that they are not willing to give in to new blood. They fear mosts that they will be shown the abyss and thats the main reason for not letting go. Crying for public sympathy as much as they want to but still the fact remains the party needs to be reshaped,renewed,renamed or even re-grouped with new alliances.

It will be very much like a Phoenix and its up to the leaders to rethink what they need to do or else SUPP will surely be shown the exit especially with the Parliamentary elections very soon.

Will they be enough time to rise from the ashes.?

The Prophets of Doom are already writing the script and the President of the party knows his time has indeed been “poisoned by too much infighting which was swept under the carpet.” It would have been better if they had it all out then rather than now as another component party PRS must thank their lucky stars for “fighting it out in the ring’

The toxins which has seaped into the blood of the party is beyond repair and only if the changes in  TOTALITY nothing will heal it. PRS without its bold leaders slugging it out openly and also using the ruthlessness way of “winner takes all” we would be saying PRS “dead man walking” instead of SUPP if the factions have not crossed swords. PRS chopped and reengineered from its bitter infighting to free itself to be a major component party today.

Today the instigators and detractors of the party are clearly identified and BN has really to thank the ‘people” who are so instumental in getting the mandate in the last State elections. SUPP’s urban losses are their own doing and nobody else and they have themselves to be blamed instead of still pinning the blame conveniently to one man “pek moh” or CM Taib Mahmud.

Of course everyone says he has overstayed and ruled for too long but have they forgotten what good he has done for Sarawak. audie61 had the pleasure to interview SAPP Information Chief Chong Pit Fah in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and he said,”Sarawakians should be proud to have a leader like Taib Mahmud as he has maintained Sarawaks ‘autonomy” { 1. The condition or quality of being autonomous; independence. 2. a. Self-government or the right of self …}

Whats wrong with him being sworned in at 10.30pm on the night of the election results as he being the BN Chairman Sarawak he has the legal right to be sworn in. Why the fuss.? Chong is a person known not to beat around the bush and he said ” That’s autonomy too.”

He also said that he knows Sarawak CM Taib as also very vocal especially when Sarawakians are pitted against each other in religious hatred or toying around with their sentiments. He ensures that religious freedom is maintained and Chong too was told of the speech which CM Taib delivered in the last BN convention in KL.

Dont just judge him for now but judge him for the whole duration and Chong does feel that Sarawakians have not been short changed by his thirty years of rule.

He will eventually go and when he does it will not be the same again for Sarawak.He does fear for Sarawak when the time comes for the change and many would be singing the same tune like what Sabahans are facing. The good old days will never come back again.

SUPP will need to address the leadership changes sooner rather than later as it is rotting from within very soon the outside will just cave in when he was asked on SUPP’s losses. I would say if the veterans still hogs the limelight the second echelon leaders will not be able push forward and make their stand. The party will be very like many other political parties before them which remains but not supported by members and the public and are termed…

P185 New method”Sms Sabah”

Updated 11.50pm  from Sandakan:-The sms received are in chinese text so it is believed to be only aimed at the Chinese Voters in P185 Batu sapi.

This just in. Seems the Minister of IT Sabah Yee Moh Chai is coming up with the most ingenious way of splitting the voters in P185. The choice is up to them and it could backfire or gain inroads into the voters minds of already willing to vote for SAPP. The staunch BN voters will be in the bag and dividing the votes of SAPP and PKR is the only way for BN. 

The word on the ground on the sms” Apparently all registered voters of P185 Batu Sapi today received sms asking them to vote for PR as SAPP are trailing behind. It is believed this is the secret strategy that the BN candidate was saying that she had for the final day.”

Isn’t this reinventing…???

“Sabah Votes,Sarawak Develops..”

Bugi Wijaya sent to audie61 an email and said “This is one of the many PKR Propaganda pamphlets and election material to ensure that the People of Sabah will vote for their Candidate” His friend said Sabah has this what has Sarawak got? 

Sure Sarawak has got plenty and this picture tells us more than we need to know. It’s a fact and travelling in Kota Sentosa areas are now a breeze.

Do We Need To Ask Who Has Done His Fair Share Of Work?

Voters in N45 and P185 will be going to the POLLS tomorrow and your VOTES are Crucial…. 

Updates P185:”LDP lending a hand to PBS..??‏”

As LDP President Datuk Liew Vui Keong gave his full support to Datuk Seri Musa Aman as Sabah Chief Minister, many on the street are questioning his motive.

It was only last August where Liew had said that he hopes to thrash out with the Prime Minister on the controversy surrounding LDP and the Sabah BN Chairman.

His deputy Datuk Chin Su Phin had earlier call on to Musa to step down saying LDP has lost confidence in the UMNO Sabah Chairman as Chief Minister.

The Batu Sapi by election has unite the BN component parties with Liew’s affirmation of Musa leadership.

This augurs well towards a victory for BN candidate Datin Tsen Thau Lin, widow of incumber MP Datuk Edmund Chong Ket Wah who died in a tragic motorbike accident.

As everyone enter into overdrive for the crucial part of the campaign, all the candidates are using all resources to reach out to the undecided voters.

The chinese are eagerly waiting for the political rally by Penang CM Lim Guan Eng.

PR believes with the strong presence of DAP leaders including Lim Kit Siang who is a crowd puller, PKR’s Ansari Abdullah will be able to spring a surprise.

Meanwhile, SAPP’s Yong Teck Lee are promoting their website http://www.sapp.org.my , batusapi.blogspot.com and sabahtv.net to reach out to the internet savvy voters.

With each camp expressing their confidence, the positive outcome of this by election is the brisk business made by the local businesses. Even the broadband has been sold out.

Come 4 November 2010, Batu Sapi will never be the same anymore.
