You want change? Let’s see what change you’ll really get…

Posted on April 12, 2011


If you spend a lot of time online and also attending DAP ceramahs in the major towns of Sarawak, I won’t blame you for thinking that BN doesn’t have a chance in hell of winning this State Election.

But then again, you have to take all this with a pinch of salt because these are actually the two platforms where DAP performs extremely well in, and where BN is…well, let’s just say there’s a lot of room for improvement, shall we.

Anyway, if you’re 100% behind the message of CHANGE, I just thought it would be good for us to think hard about what kind of change we can expect anytime soon.

Let’s say…let’s just say…BN wins by the narrowest of majorities, say 36 seats, and the coalition of convenience that is also known as Pakatan Rakyat, wins 35 seats; What kind of change can we expect?

In such a scenario, I think we can safely say that SUPP’s candidates would be totally wiped out, save for Miri perhaps and PBB, SPDP and PRS would suffer relatively heavy casualties, as well.

So there will definitely be CHANGE, and thus, the opposition has proven its point and therefore would not need to do much more, except when it’s time to attend the DUN session twice a year, where they will get to raise their voice and pump their fists and dare the DUN Speaker to throw them out (which they usually do and which the Speaker normally does!).

So the CHANGE there is the CHANGE in personnel in the DUN. That’s about it.

For those who voted the opposition members there, well done, that’s about ALL the CHANGE that you’ve achieved there.

Apart from the occassional pointing at bad roads and clogged drains and speaking at press conferences, I believe that’s all the CHANGE you’ll get from those guys.

If you’re currently living in opposition-controlled areas, you can forget about CHANGE because it’s just going to be more of the same in these places if the opposition wins.

But if SUPP gets wiped out in the election, who will represent the Chinese voice in the government, you may ask?

Well, the only likely voice left in the government would have to be from Malaya, in the form of MCA.

So it’s likely that you’ll see more of Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek after April 16.

That will be a MAJOR CHANGE indeed. Thank you Sarawak voters!

But if BN Sarawak is only governing with the slimmest of majorities, doesn’t that mean that other Barisan Nasional components from Malaya would also have to set up shop in the State, as well?

After all, it would be the only logical and responsible thing to do, wouldn’t it?

So after April 16, maybe a few months after, we will see the arrival of UMNO, MIC, Gerakan and PPP in Sarawak, joining their brethren MCA.

Finally Datuk M Kayveas will get his wish and probably he will stand in Sarawak too.

That will be a MAJOR CHANGE indeed. Thank you Sarawak voters!

So when Sarawak voters vote DAP and PKR and PAS this Saturday, they will be voting for CHANGE alright! Thank you Sarawak voters!

Finally, BN Sarawak will no longer be just BN of Sarawak-based parties, but BN from Malaya, as well.

Thank you Sarawak voters, for bringing this kind of CHANGE to our beloved State…if Sarawak BN (heaven forbids) loses or wins by the slimmest of majorities.

Finally, we will all know the peace, progress and prosperity that our fair neighbour Sabah has enjoyed all these years.

Thank you Sarawak voters for the CHANGE you bring!
