    Sorry for the divergence but I would like to know what Sdr. Lim thoughts are in what is going on the PKR election particularly with all the speculation about Sabah & Sarawak unhappiness and the potential impact on Pakatan Rakyat. Given how much DAP and PAS has stake in PR, if the charges against PKR is true, do not DAP and PAS have a plan for it?

    I have always believed that DAP should have had a rural strategy in Sarawak and Sabah long time ago. Sarawak and Sabah as well as this country would be better off if DAP has a dominant role in Sarawak and Sabah. After all there have been tales that there was some proposal that Sarawak and Sabah should have joined Singapore when it was kicked out..

    I am about at the end of my life as M’sian, and you guys arranged a seminar to tell ‘what does it means to be M’sian’

    I tell you what is M’sian, it means you live in M’sia. M’sia is like a life insurance, it says it gives you protection, but in reality, you don’t have chance to enjoy the benefit, except paying the premium.

    They all turned down the invitation because by attending such forums, they would not be allowed to stand as bn candidates in the coming GE. And there goes their pot of gold!
