According to Lim Kit Siang’s blog, Pakatan Rakyat is moving to “chart a strategy to remove Sarawak and Sabah as the Barisan Nasional’s fixed deposit states.” According to the same entry:
One important meaning of the Sibu by-election result is that Barisan Nasional cannot take Sarawak and Sabah for granted, which have rendered the next general elections a more level playing field in the contest for national power in Putrajaya between Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional.
When I read that, I went like – WTF?!
This is the exact kind of short-term and short-sighted leadership that we do not need in the country. The PR should not be charting plans on taking away Sabah and Sarawak from the BN. They should be charting plans on how to build up and develop Sabah and Sarawak to their full potential. There is a very subtle but major difference between the two policies – one is long-term while the other is short-term.
Sigh! What can I say except that the PR is just as corrupt and lacking as the BN.
It sucks to be Malaysian these days.
