Where is Malaysia?

  1. Lee Lam Thye has proposed that the said to be "Malaysia Day" to be held for the first time ever on the 16th of September this year be renamed "National Unity Day".  Is Lee losing touch of the politics in Sabah and Sarawak?  Is he not sensitive enough to the feelings of the people of Sabah and Sarawak who have for more than 46 years celebrated an independence day that has no particular relevance to them (31 August 1957)
  2. If we are to celebrate "National Unity Day" then where is Malaysia?
  3. Does Lee not see the importance?

Sibu Parliamentary By-Election an Acid Test

Wong Ho Leng, the Chairman of Sarawak State DAP has mentioned the importance of the coming Sibu Parliamentary by-election when he said in a scale of 10 the seroiusness is 11. Wan Azizah is in Sarawak to discuss the candidacy for the opposition front.  This coming by-election would be a clash of the titans. Whether the likely candidate is a DAP or PKR person at present is immaterial. Since this is a litmus test, for the next coming Sarawak State General Elections ( slated to happen before April next year) both fronts are preparing for a fight to the end.  A win would vastly pump much confidence in the opposition mission to dislodge the Barisan National stronghold of Sarawak.  The opposition front appears to be more united this time around.  The stake = a gradual erosion of the ruling BN's party control over Sarawak.

Sarawak minor cabinet scuffle?

Awg. Tengah says " Adenan is a perfect choice to become the special advisor ". One political elite has openly declared support of another. But many have not forgotten CM's choices for the CM 's post a few years ago. Names were mentioned then: Effendi, Abang Jo and Adenan. Has Effendi's political fortunes gone astray? Is Abg. Jo not good enough? How did CM "scuff " about succession planning?
Has his actions of delaying now turning into a minor scuffle instead of a reshuffle?
Pak Eng says: Sarawak politics is too elitist for ordinary people.
Vocab: " Scuff" - walk with dragging feet / "Scuffle" - confused struggle or disorderly fight at close quarters ( Oxford Concise Dictionary)
