Eerie Silence On 10 cents Increment on Fuel prices

What does this eeriness mean ? One political analysts told audie61 bluntly.”the rakyat couldn’t be bothered anymore as there are too many holes in their pockets to stitched up

Long gone are the days of protests of increasing fuel prices and what the PDAM (Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia) say about long queues at petrol stations every time prices were increased will not be happening.

He added,”The people are simply FEDUP to say the least and cannot wait to repay the government of the day the same way that they are being treated now. It will be soon and PRU14 could be the time.

News are also filtering through from internet portals that Putrajaya has announced that it would no longer warn consumers prior of fuel price increase.

This is extracted ,” The retail price of RON95 petrol will go up by 10 sen and RON97 will increase by 20 sen a litre for July 2015, effective midnight. “However, the price of diesel will remain unchanged at RM2.05 a litre,” according to the Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia deputy president, Datuk Zulkifli Mokti.

He said the new price for RON95 is RM2.15 a litre, and RON97 at RM2.55 a litre after the goods and services tax.; “The prices will be effective from 12.01 am, July 1,” he said.

The eerie silence is very unusual for Malaysians in particular as many will certainly voice their concerns. This will spark another mad scrambling of food,goods and services increases.

DO YOU FEEL THE HEAT…??

Chief Ministers Men Series 2

adenan 11February 28th 2015 is a Year since CM Adenan assume Office as the 5th Chief Minister of Sarawak..Many Congratulations to him.

No Mandate“…Very True..”Borrowed Power“..Undisputed ..”It’s Reality“..Of Course it is and to put in a few more mouth watering words It should read as “the Three Kingdoms ” are working well together. According to the Chief Ministers Men they are gelling well and working together and in concensus with each other in the cabinet and in official matters. (The Three Kingdoms-Adenans men,Awang Tengahs men and Abang Joharis men)

One would have thought it must be the “Leaders of the MERGED MINDS” as they are very much in the BN coalition and should ultimately be strong enough to even push either of them out of the Kingdom. Unfortunately none of the component leaders are seen to be able to match either the two Generals says a spokesman in the Chief Ministers Men Circle.

There are a lot of threats and it is the “ENEMY WITHIN” which we must be able to tackle and not so much the Pakatan Force in Sarawak. Overzealousness, Overenthusiastic and Overdoing it have thrown a spanner in the works of one of the Generals who was tipped without bother to ascend the CM’s Chair. In the end the 3 {O’s} did one of the damage plus the DAP Sarawak claims of UMNO on another.However it does seem that there is a different threat which is creeping under the carpet.

As much as the Chief Ministers Men try to deny that it is happening one knows PBB culture too well in Sarawak. The days of “surat layang layang ,tree-shaking method and ways practised in the past cannot be executed now. Its a wide open space in the social media now and in PBB there is no such thing as infighting the Hierarchy straight on.

Try you may and the whole machinery will sweep you and your “merry men” all the way and have you sunk in the South China Sea.”

Now, where did we pluck all the courage to write this Series 2.? As we told one of the CM’s Men”I might not have the monetary resources but what I have stored up in my Upper body above my neck is enough to send shivers down the spine of many walking the corridors of power

Obviously, a lot of the Generals Men were not too happy around this time last year. Seriously,if your boss baton was snatched from him at the eleventh hour under your noses it will leave a bitter taste in the mouth. One of the General Men even didn’t think that our writing was credible and he too have to swallow his words together with his soldiers.

A year have lapse and they tried many things which even included the famous Sarawak way”bisik bisik of a Coup d’etat,even trying to derail the Chief Minister in his New Policies(illegal loggers,integrity pledge,NCR issues,,bringing in racist bigots) and even to the extend of defaming and alleged that Adenan is controlled from the back very much like the “INFAMOUS 4th Floor Boys” .They really tried to but so far have been checked.

Was this all planned by the former Chief Minister one might ask? Word has it that CM and Governor don’t see eye to eye. Really .do you believe in all this nonsense?

Chief Ministers Men have manouvere with caution and CM himself have implemented well and his ideas have ensured political stability till now plus the economy is vibrant which has assited him fully plus the Full Federal Support. Still though it lingers on and that is its not won FAIRLY.

The No Mandate have come back to haunt Adenan as much as it did to his counterpart the PM Najib himself. Adenan can say,” I will reprimand you,put you in cold freezer  etc etc but the fact is he is using his predecessors Mandate and have not even done much to put his men in place. The fact of the matter is that Adenan is also using Borrowed Power which in REALITY does not mean a thing to the other Generals men”.

Here lies the hard cold facts” They can say what they like but the sadness is that they still listen very much to the tune of the former CM.

This phrase will not go down well but its REALITY,”100 % the Rakyat are warming up to Adenan as the Chief Minister and are popular but 70% of the YB’s and their men are watching at Adenan to fall sooner rather than cross the finishing line.

CM’s Men knows that they will be a “bitter fight ” as the election dates looms. We mentioned earlier “enemy within” and it is BN Coalition itself which will give Adenan some concerns. He not only have to deal with the warring godfather factions of UPP-SUPP/TERAS-SPDP but also those veteran and underperformed YBS in his PBB stable.

Of course, the Generals men wants to be appointed as candidates as they too are winnable and would not want to be dropped. The lists will be drawn out and it will be very ugly within and there will not be too many compromises as the CM will need to vet through carefully and do a thorough scanning as not only they are winnable but also whether when they  received the new mandate they will at least  listen and respect the Chair of the Chief Minister.

Many are clinging on to the Generals coat tails hoping that their Chief will not abandon them when it matters most.

Where are the areas where they will be changes will be our next Series. Slowly we will be revealing the names and places and what the Chief Ministers Men have to engage to bring sanity to the office of the Chief Minister even though the  Mandate is a Borrowed One which in itself is a Reality.

One would love to give more quotes out but his would be enough to spice up some eager cyber troopers who will want to defend their Generals turf. No point as the bullets that will rained own will not even penetrate the force field that is in place.

It is indeed miraculous to say the least that we have come so far,survived and yet we are still not rewarded in the manner that many before us have found fame and fortune and are seen enjoying their rich pickings. Remember those Infamous words hurled at us,”YOU STILL ALIVE…NO! WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN”

Like we said earlier,what we have above our neck will be enough to DERAIL AND EVEN FORCE A MAJOR STORM to Sarawaks Administration before the Chief Ministers Men took control of the CM Chair. Did we not see hurrying and scurrying of the Generals Men when they crisscross the entire state of Sarawak?

Our love is for our beloved Sarawak State to be in harmony and peacefull state with very little outside interference. Next Series will be tastier and mind blowing as we get into the groove.

Let’s wish CM Adenan a Good start after much turbulences and he has achieved so much in 1 year in office. The Generals Men the Series will be till Number 13th and if you need reminding please go back to Series One and how it will all unfold.

Chief Ministers Men Series 1

Villains11Please go through, read and recall the significance of these two dates written in audie61

  1. September 2nd 2010 “Loyalty Betrayal” https://audie61.wordpress.com/2015/02/11/loyalty-betrayal-2/

  3. February 13th 2015 Chief Minister’s Men.

Will this spark Nightmare at “PetraJaya”..??My “Alter Ego” is willing me to unleash the next super nuclear bomb on Petrajaya.  (1984 was the release of supernatural slasher horror movie in which the star was Freddy Krueger. 2010 was the remake of Friday the 13th.It does seem that across the South China Sea a much Anticipated Bitter War is also catching fire in PUTRAJAYA.

No thanks to the writing of Veteran Kadir Jasin. Of course, we are not in the same mould as him as he has served in the New Straits times as Group Editor in Chief.(yours truly was only a political columnist for a local English daily only)

Kadir holds nothing back and his thoughts reflects what the elder statesmen Mahathir, has says a blogger Pecah Palak Mikir in a conversation with us as he too hails from Kedah.

Why rock the stability of the state as very soon its time for the 11th State Elections one may ask? A very Prominent Elder Politician who has served his tenure in SUPP says its time to tell the story of Friday the 13th 2015. There will be a number of Series not Chronicles like Raja Petra Kamarrudiin on Khairy Jamaluddin. (lols…hahaha)

Surely this kickstarts the road to the 11th Sarawak State Elections where there will be ” serious lobbying” to be a candidate.

We are all watching a “MOVIE MADE”(translate from Hockien) which is UNREAL as mosts of us are hidden from the truth. Look into the eyes of Adenan Satem and tell me the truth? Is he a worried man or is just continuing his term as Chief Minister  as he is destined. We have called him a ROBOT before and under all that façade (he sits on 22nd Floor) is a ship that will erupt anytime when the buttons are pushed.

The Opposition leaders are all waiting for the eruption but knowing Adenan he will prove them all wrong. He was the ONLY ROBOTIC GENERAL under orders and able to see what was coming towards his predecessor Taib Mahmud. He now sits in the very seat which was occupied for 32 years and very soon February 28th 2015 will be his official one year in office. He has an exemplary report card says the Deputy Prime Minister echoing the Prime Minister’s words. (real buddies they are…. hehehe)

Adenan will prevail with returning the seats for BN if he does not rock the status quo of all the candidates who were his predecessors men. Will he do that is a million dollar question? Of course, many of the Chief Ministers Men will be willing to be fielded and the “lobbying” surely will be very intensified. (on the flip side Pakatan will be ready to offer some of them a second chance we hear from the ground)

However will Adenan be able to muster a clean FULL SWEEP for PBB again and win back some losts seats? As it seems now there are too many holes for Adenan to fill it up and presently the Pakatan boys will have a field day with PUTRAJAYA catching fire and the sympathy of Anwar round 2.

Adenan can say PKR is and but a party born out of Anwar jailing and now there are more issues to solve than just going after the illegal timber boys, stopping the racists bigots plus overzealous Napoleons left from the former regime.

Most of them are waiting for someone to ignite the FIRE but none dares to step over the line. PUTRAJAYA Kadir Jasin dares . In Petrajaya they know what Adenan is like and he has survived over 30 years with CM Taib which is not an easy feat.( Ya. dahulu dia bujang dan hensem tetapi sekarang juga tua dan kelihatan sakit)

What makes audie61 even dare to write about the Chief Ministers Men ? Surely,the party boys will come out and defend him. Oh! we are doomed this time round.Let’s see who is in denial or are they really Chief Ministers men?

Aiyoyo, we have written too much for Series one. Time to schedule the next posting.

A STRONG REMINDER ITS ALREADY A YEAR AND WE ARE STILL WAITING……DONT OVERUSE THAT PRIVELEGE SAYS THE ELDERLY PROMINENT POLITICIAN AND HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS SAYING….

Sarawak Boiling Hot 2

undur3When we wrote this on 30th june 2013. “Sarawak Boiling Hot”  we were told in so many words “Bro.ground swell is against the ruling government at the moment’ and “the uncertainties in the political BN Sarawak coalition leaves much to be desired.

All too is not well within the PR setup though they have somehow created a PERCEPTION  that their problems are ‘containable“.

We have a lot of work to do in order that the ruling government stays relevant. It will be tough but we will prevail Bro . if the right strategies and tactics are implemented

The earlier article:- http://audie61.wordpress.com/2013/06/30/sarawak-boiling-hot/

It is “Boiling Hot no doubt and it needs to be sorted out soon.   The following were some headline grabbers  :-

  • 1. SUPP “warring factions” to trigger full blown. (A number of articles already written and appeared in the mainstream media. Even a Youth Central committee and another veteran Chinese community leader says he is FEDUP!  and they will have no choice but to leave/resign from the party if matters are not resolved.)
  • 2. SPDP’s groundswell in Bau “Church allocation” turn from bad to worst .   ( cheque withheld leaves bad taste to rakyat and is BAD PUBLICITY for the party. Heads must roll..  )
  • 3. The speculations of CM Taib to step down after November to make way for “New leadership” (watch this space)
  • 4. DAP to make “inroads to supposedly PKR areas” Bad Blood spilled?                ( articles can be viewed in internet portals)
  • 5. Federal leaders suggesting to the State leaders to have the State elections latest by end of 2014  in order to have a “GENERAL ELECTIONS in 2018” which will also include Sarawak this time round.
  • 6. The component parties are all cleaning up their acts and getting rid of traitors”Disciplinary actions” from within and ensuring their coalitions will win in the allocated 71 Sarawak State seats.
  • 7. PRS to consolidate the party and  ‘grassroots” calling to put in new leaders in coming State elections and replace those who did not “toe” the party’s lines.
  • 8. New faces in PBB highly likely as many veteran YBs will have had served their time. Jostling to be candidates will be the order of the day in the months to come. ( An assemblyman said,’ Usual as when election nears everyone will want to be in the good books of the party and wants to be renominated. Of course it will not turn ugly but it will not be for the faint hearted he said. PBB will remain intact though they will be some unpleasantries on the ground. It’s common he said and this is politics”  )

This from President of SPDP will trigger some reactions from the 4 State Assemblyman who are still partyless but they call themselves the BN CLUB members

PAKAN: Sarawak Progressive Democratic Party (SPDP) is in consolidation mode and will field seven new faces in the 11th state election, disclosed SPDP president Tan Sri William Mawan.

He told BAT3 yesterday the party’s Supreme Council would pick the candidates.

For now, the party has identified young and capable people to rejuvenate the party.

“Now is the time for us to consolidate. We have reached rock bottom. The only way for us now is moving forward,” he said when met after a meet-the-people session at Rumah Jilap Taji, some 8km from here, yesterday.

Mawan, who is also Social Development Minister, admitted he was more confident now to lead the party after winning all the four parliamentary seats – Mas Gading, Saratok, Bintulu and Baram – it contested in the May 5 general election.

The current term of the State Legislative Assembly expires on June 19, 2016, but the chief minister has the prerogative to dissolve the Assembly earlier.

In the 10th state election in 2011, SPDP contested in eight seats and won six. It lost Krian and Ba Kelalan to PKR.

But after the state election, the party suffered a huge blow when the party sacked five members, four of them assemblymen and one an MP, for gross insubordination. The MP, Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe, defended Mas Gading in the recent polls as an independent candidate, but lost.

The assemblymen are Tasik Biru assemblyman Datuk Peter Nansian, Datuk Sylvester Entrie (Marudi), Rosie Yunus (Bekenu) and Paulus Palu Gumbang (Batu Danau).

The situation in SPDP worsened when its Meluan assemblyman Wong Judat quit and joined Sarawak Workers Party (SWP) as its vice president on Sept 1, 2012.

When asked whether the party would reconsider taking back the four assemblymen, who formed the yet-to-be-registered BN Club, Mawan said the party would consider all options to tackle the issue.

“We have had enough. Now you will not see the same Tan Sri William Mawan. We have had enough of all these,” said Mawan, who is also Pakan assemblyman and Saratok MP.

He added the party would soon have its triennial general meeting (TGM) and then hold inner circle meetings.

“On the new candidates, the Supreme Council will decide who would be the fielded. We will not be talking about the BN Club members. We will only talk about SPDP seats.


YOU WIN ,WE WIN, WE DELIVER…!!

4mpsVOTE THE BN/SPDP

Candidates

for continued stability,progress and development.

BN will ensure that more infra, tar sealed roads, water and electricity supply as well as better school buildings are implemented in all the 4 areas SPDP contest.

PAS HADI SAID THIS..”.CAWAT..??”

cawatSarawakians dont have short memories. What happen at BATANG AI by elections? What was said by the President of PAS? Let’s show them what we Sarawakians will do to PAS.

GIVE THEM AN EGG

TodayPAS president Abdul Hadi Awang  named the party’s candidates for seven constituencies in Sarawak, but three of the MP seats are also being claimed by Pakatan Rakyat partners DAP and PKR.

The seven seats are 1. Kota Samarahan 2.Sibuti 3.Igan 4.Batang sadong 5. Tanjung Manis 6. Julau 7.Mukah

Surely this is on a collision course with DAP and PKR and Baru Bian has this to say,”I will find out from Kuala Lumpur. I am shocked that I have not been informed of the decision,”

No Need lah Baru Bian you must remember what PAS President Hadi said in Batang Ai by elections.

Lets refresh you,”Semua pilihanraya kecil sebelum ini keputusannya memihak kepada kita. Cuma di Batang Ai sahaja kita kalah sebab mereka ini tidak reti undi, pakai cawat lagi. Saya bukan nak hina tetapi tempat yang pakai molek, undi PAS.”

DOES PAS CARE FOR DAP OR PKR SARAWAK..???

BN Battles to take back Sibu Seat…

SAMSUNG TECHWIN DIGIMAX-410We wrote earlier:-“Sibu:- In the by election DAP Wong Ho Leng won this seat. Wong would not defend this seat due to brain tumour and recoving from chemotheraphy. Temonggong Vincent Lau would bepitted against a new DAP candidate in Oscar Ling. Chances of wrestling the seat back from DAP looks very good as PBB ADUN Annuar has been working extra hard to win over the losts bumiputra votes during the byelections. They have both been seen working hand in hand and SUPP’s chances looks brighter eventhough this 95% urban seat. (Grey)

Today an internet portal has this to say which are more detailed as we only scratched the surface.

GE13 WATCH Given that incumbent Wong Ho Leng will not defend the Sibu parliamentary seat on grounds of illness, the DAP can expect an all-out fight from rivals in Sarawak.     The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) is expected to field a heavyweight – Vincent Lau, 65 – in its bid to reclaim the seat lost by a slim majority of 398 votes in the 2010 by-election.
Vincent will face Oscar Ling, a 36-year-old pharmacist and Wong’s special assistant, who was named last month as the DAP’s candidate.
There is little doubt that Vincent stands ahead of Ling in terms of personality as well as familiarity in the local community.
Vincent, while a newcomer to politics, is a prominent figure as he is second-in-command of the family-run business, KTS Group, in Sibu.

He is widely recognised for contributions to education and social work over the last two decades. This has earned him the honorific of ‘Temenggong’ from the Sarawak government.
Still, this could work against him because the political scene in Sibu had been dominated by rich and powerful business figures for two decades up to 2008, said Sarawak DAP secretary Chong Chieng Jen.

azlanThey have found involvement in politics to be beneficial to their family-run businesses, he claimed.
The two parliamentary seats of Sibu and Lanang have been dominated by such personalities in previous elections.
SUPP had fielded Robert Lau Hoi Chew for five terms. Upon his death in 2010 and in the resulting by-election, the party’s Robert Lau Hui Yew was defeated by the DAP’s Wong.
Four-term Lanang MP and Sibu mayor Tiong Thai King is a younger brother of Rimbunan Hijau Group boss and tycoon Tiong Hiew King.
While the BN has yet to announce its candidates for the 13th general election, Tiong and Vincent are on the list for Lanang and Sibu respectively.
Sibu SUPP chairperson Wong Soon Koh has reportedly described them as “the most winnable candidates”.

Another of Wong’s special aides, Alice Lau – 32 and also a pharmacist – will contest in Lanang. She was defeated in last state election in the Bawang Assan constituency by the SUPP’s Wong Soon Koh.
The DAP has claimed to see a decline in support for the BN in Lanang, an urban seat with 72 percent Chinese voters.
SUPP’s ‘convincing candidate’
A source close to the Lau family told Malaysiakini that the internal rift within SUPP has dampened support for the party, and this is why it has to field a convincing candidate in Sibu.
“By fielding Vincent, SUPP hopes the voters will choose his personality over the party – it hopes they will forget about the infighting and remember Lau’s contributions to the community,” the source said.

He also said Vincent has a good relationship with the Tiongs and that the two families have agreed to support each other in the election, even to the extent of persuading employees to vote for the respective candidates.
When contacted, Vincent urged voters not to label him as a “business tycoon candidate” and not to judge him based on his background, saying this would be unfair to him.
“I just happen to come from a business family and have a better financial position than others,” he said, also rejecting the notion that rich candidates would stoop to buying votes.

Asked if he will quit the family-run business to become a full-time politician should he win the Sibu seat, Vincent said he will be able to attend to both business and politics.
He is prepared for the duties that await an elected representative, including “visiting flooded areas and even check on street lighting if need be”.
Both the Lau and Tiong families have one thing in common – control over several newspapers and publications.
However, Vincent said he will not use these to promote himself, explaining that he wants the media to report fairly on the election campaign.
SUPP strategies have ‘failed twice’
The DAP’s Bukit Bendera MP and political strategist Liew Chin Tong is unfazed by SUPP’s strategy of fielding candidates from rich families.
He pointed out that these candidates had been defeated in the Sibu parliamentary by-election in 2010 and in the 2011 state election.
“When society is mature, (you) can’t buy votes, but if society is immature and poor, money will have its say,” he noted.

Liew said he sees GE13 as a battle based on political alliances and demand for change, rather than on the personality of candidates.
The DAP is more optimistic about winning Lanang than keeping Sibu, a SUPP fortress. Until the 2010 by-election, the party had lost the seat only once – by 141 votes in the 1982 general election.
Sibu has more that 64,000 voters, of whom 65 percent are Chinese and 25 percent are bumiputeras.

“Although it is named Sibu, the constituency is located on the outskirts of Sibu town and has a mix of urban and rural voters from the BN’s stronghold,” Liew said.
“We never dreamt we would defeated (Robert) in the by-election.”
The DAP had benefited from a large batch of voters returning home to vote in the by-election, which saw a 70 percent turn-out compared to 67 percent in 2008, he added.
