As Philippines President, I will seize North Borneo on Day One . . .

Napoleon Acebron, If Filipino want Sabah, they will have to elect me as President.

I will seize the entire North Borneo within 24 hours on Day One and re-impose toll collection along the main waterways.

Malaya won’t have the stomach for a fight. The UN Security Council will step in and enforce a ceasefire along the border with neighbouring S’wak as the line of control. After that the UNSC and the UN General Assembly will talk and talk and talk forever. No action, talk only.

The Sabah claim refers to southern Esszone, and by extension, northern EssZone.

This is not a territorial claim.

It’s about the right to collect toll along the main waterways in EssZone.

Brunei denies handing over northern EssZone to the Sulu sultan to collect toll along the main waterway, not even as an Agent.

The British North Borneo Chartered Company compensated the Sulu sultan with an annual purse for giving up toll collection in southern EssZone.

M’sia has since increased the annual compensation from RM5K to RM5, 200 to the heirs of the Sulu sultan. The Foreign Ministry may have since stopped paying the compensation as the Heirs never collected them from the Bank.

The heirs of the Sulu sultan should apply to the High Court of Borneo to revise the compensation upwards. I would suggest 50K pesos a year, to be revised upwards by 5 per cent every two years, subject to a maximum 500K pesos a year.

In Malaya, the British converted river mouth toll collecting kerajaan sungai into territorial sultanates named after the main waterways.

The toll collectors were pirates, sultan and former Hindu Rajah.

The British stopped the toll collection, gave an annual purse to the newly-elevated sultan, and built roads and railways.

The people stopped using the waterways for transportation.
