It’s sickening to read such stories 55 years later from the very people who were party to illegalities.
It’s the politics of bullshit.
Bullshit works because money talks.
Why wait 55 years?
In law, it can be said that GPS gave up Sarawak’s rights through lack of urgency, through lack of action and being party to illegalities.
MA63 is not law, but being the ultimate political document on Malaysia, it has force of law.
Having said that, MA63 is not valid since North Borneo and Sarawak did not have locus standi to sign it.
Still, even an invalid law is valid until a court declares otherwise.
As surely as the sun will rise tomorrow morning in the east, North Borneo and Sarawak will sooner rather than later be free of Malaya and become independent nation-states.
Karmic forces exhaust themselves sooner or later.
If the exhaustion is delayed, it’s because of artificial prohibition imposed on upward social mobility.
The artificial prohibition is more self-imposed rather than by Malaya.
The parti parti Malaya must be kept out of Borneo.
The gov’ts in North Borneo and Sarawak must not be proxies of Putrajaya.
The corruption of the cium this and cium that syndrome must be ended.
That would help eradicate the grinding poverty created by corruption viz. the transfer of wealth from those who have no power to those who have power; and the transfer of wealth from Borneo to Malaya.
The way forward is to get rid of the parti parti Malaya in Borneo and local parties which have been proxies of Putrajaya.
Just take a chance with local parties in Borneo which have never been proxies of Putrajaya.
The parti parti Malaya in Borneo strengthen the Malayan voice in Parliament at the expense of the people of Sabah and Sarawak.
Borneo is supposed to have veto power, i.e. one third plus one seat, in Parliament. That works out to 75 seats. Instead, Borneo has only 57 seats in Parliament.
Having said that, the Muslims in Sarawak are sure to stick with PBB.
The Dayak must not vote for Pesaka. The Sarawak gov’t is not sincere on MA63. They are playing politics with the issue in view of the state elections.
The Muslims in Sarawak support Malaya at the expense of Borneo rights.
In Sabah, the sanctity of the Constitution must be returned.
The Chinese in Borneo must separate their politics from that in Malaya. They are now supporting the Chinese in Malaya at the expense of Borneo rights.
The state of rotten politics in Malaya will continue as long as the Federal gov’t is not bankrupt.
When the Federal gov’t goes bankrupt, the international community has to come in, and the rotten politics have to end.
Enter the IMF, World Bank, the UN Secretary General’s Office, the UN Security Council, other UN bodies, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, UK, US, and Canada.
BULLDOZER said it. The so-called Malays are shameless creatures besides being lazy.
The so-called Malays will always support thieves.
I remember someone insisting, before GE14, that there was no reason why BN could not rule for another 1, 000 years.
I reminded him of Hitler and the British Empire. The first crumbled after four years, the other ended after 150 years.
He refused to accept that THIEF Najib stole RM2.6b for starters.
The so-called Malays supported BULLDOZER because he created the system to plunder the public treasury for the so-called Malay capitalists to accumulate capital.
ACA/MACC said, after probing Taib twice, that there was no corruption.
“Gov’t contracts follow procedures,” said MACC. “Gov’t contracts are not corruption.”
Now, Mahathir wants THIEF Najib out of the way for doing what he did i.e. plundering the public treasury but in a different way.
Then, he will deregister Umno and probably PAS as well to force the so-called Malays to support Bersatu.
The so-called Malays have always been in a situation where they were forced to support one thieving party to form the gov’t.
There’s a reason why the bankers always win.
Lawyers like Shafee Abdullah for THIEF Najib should stop wasting time finding fault with the bank.
He might be a hotshot attorney, but he can’t possibly win his argument with bankers on money matters.
Banks spend literally hundreds of millions – even billions – every year perfecting their systems and operations from being gamed or rigged.
Corruption, under the MACC Act, is about giving and taking.
Who gave? Who took?
MACC does not do due diligence on gov’t contracts to determine whether they were inflated.
This is where anti money laundering laws should come in.
Money laundering is defined in international law, since 911, as having assets far in excess of what can be legitimately accumulated in a lifetime.
Such assets can be frozen, seized, and forfeited by the state by civil action.
Criminal suits would only be initiated if the civil action is challenged.
