It is now a well worn out cliché that East Malaysia is BN’s safe deposit, not gaining any interest but just kept safe in a strongroom. Sabah and Sarawak are the two states with an abundance of rare resources but shackled by poverty. I have had my fair share of campaigning in those two states to know that their time will come when they will realize that they cannot be just KEPT to be exploited and abused. Maybe this time around the people of Sabah and Sarawak are realizing that enough is enough, extricate, let go and move on. Then they will realize that they are not the people BN thought they were, but BETTER! They will finally be aware that there is a difference between giving up and knowing that they have had ENOUGH!
Have our rakyat in East Malaysia come to this start truth that it is because they are ABOVE that BN wants them DOWN, save and sound? Let me put it another way: If people are trying to bring you DOWN it only means you are ABOVE them!
Trust, somebody said, is like paper. Once crumpled, it can’t be perfect. Haven’t they been crumpled enough? Will Sabahans and Sarawakians continue to trust BN?
I have always told my students (if they can remember) and participants at seminars I facilitated over the years: If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not BIG enough.
I leave it to our people in these two states to dream BIG or forever be locked up in the strong room….only to be used or abused!....are they brave enough to dream big and will they follow these two who are saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
