Sarawak Election Watch (SEW) effort to bring SUPP to the debating table stalled because, as claimed, SUPP is busy. I can understand the helter-skelter dilemma of “how much to give, who to give, when to give.”
Debate if you have intellectual courage; you do not debate if you are an intellectual coward.
Debate if you have intellectual empathy; you do not debate if you worship self-centredness.
Debate if you have intellectual integrity; you do not debate if you cling to hypocrisy.
Debate if you believe in intellectual autonomy; you avoid debate when you subscribe to intellectual conformity.
Debate if you have intellectual sense of justice; you will not debate if you are strapped down with party irresponsibility.
Forget about debates. They can only talk MONEY. They bought Hulu Selangor and they are determined to buy Sibu….if the people Sibu lose their pride and allow themselves to be bought.
According to my fellow Blogger, Broken Shield from past experiences, Chinese are not easily attracted to such “goodies”. Such being the case, it is obvious, however, that SUPP cannot depend on Chinese votes alone. That will be disastrous, especially after they revolted against the party in the 2006 State election. So the most important thing is for the party to go all out not only to purchase the votes coming from the Iban, Malay and Melanau communities. As such, they have no time for debates. To them MONEY talks and they are determined that money will talk.
Money is so powerful that it brings proud people down to their knees to sell their birthright, their ancestral land and above all their pride. Will Sarawakians in Sibu continue to succumb to the evil bondage that they are afraid to break away from or will they in the spirit of 2006 muster enough pride and courage to bite off for good the umbilical cord that IS strangling instead of nourishing.
Well, Fauzi and I will be there to bear witness if Sarawakians in Sibu will go down on their knees to sell their birthright and their Sarawakian pride.
