Dinner with The President of MCA

The state delegates were treated with a dinner by the president of MCA, Datuk Sri Chua Soi Lek, at Ocean Seafood Restaurant, in Kota Kinabalu, just two hours ago, prior to the state AGM which is scheduled tomorrow. In his advice to the dele
gates, he said that he just wanted one thing from the members of MCA, that is Party Unity, in order for the party to win in all the constituencies it represents. Party in-fighting would erode public supports, and definitely bad for all in the party, whether one is in the mainstream or not, he said. He said, DAP is a party for tainted leaders to recycle themselves as whoever supports the DAP are now no more bad leaders once become their allies, and interestingly, these recycled leaders were previously highly condemned by them. He said MCA is always in disadvantageous as it doesn't know how to hoodwinked the public.

What happened to the latest Mahatir's statement on citizenship issuance in Sabah?

Everybody are not happy with Tun Mahatir's statement, why?
It's the way citizenships were granted in those years of bad federal-state relationship.The centre of the issue is the great number of 'other races' emerged in the sabahan population in the short span of 20 years, and is now haunting the government as more and more original natives in Sabah realize their detrimental situation, and the pains now they have to face. these new race of Sabah under 'Other Race' are also categorised under the 'Bumiputra' status which gives them the privilege like the original natives in the land. Their feelings of anger of being betrayed is beyond description.

Is it high time to consider Regional Autonomy in Sabah?

What Jeffrey said is quite true but of course there are some reservations. I can only treat the history of Sabah as a series of  tragedies and misfortunes all these years. We can blame these and that, but still not getting out of our misery, unless we really redefine our aims and direction, and start acting on it now.

Has Sabahan become more united now, or still very much in the feudal struggles amongst ourselves? This is the most important question to be answered first. There are too many leaders around claiming the paramount leadership of Sabah , but will there be one?

The difference in regional developments has indeed made the regional autonomy more justifiable than ever after 49 years of federation. There ought to be some progress on the way this region is to be governed, and since the people are more educated, and exposed, it's therefore logical to let loose.
