    If you go to Soemporna, Tawau, Lahad Datu, you will find that there is constant power tripping, and Sabah Electricity is implementing rolling brown-outs in many areas. The solution ? A 300MW LNG-fired power plant by TNB which will take another 4 years to complete. LNG is three times the cost of natural gas due to the liquefaction and re-gasification processes. Who pays for this folly ?

    Mamut Copper Mine…ahem….sounds a bit like the future of Lynas Kuantan?

    Never knew so many issues in Sabah.
    Poor Sabahans suffering for decades.
    News traveled slow to them on 12th GE.
    In the past…they had to toe the line for a living like all Malaysians.
    Now they know…PR is real and ready to replace BN.
    Najib stalling 13th GE date….reasons very clear.
    He knows Sabahans want change of Govt.

    All the pro BN blogs talk of the popularity of Najib during the Raya open house. Even MIC polished Najib’s shoes by stating that the majority support Najib. If that’s the case, why not call for elections now ? What’s there to be worried about ? Obviously Special Branch has warned Najib that appearances are deceptive.

    Oh yes we hv that advantage the aussies called competitive advantage. The one important edge not found elsewhere. The possibility to ignore all the high standards set by the umno gobermen is a really important advantage not to be missed.

    ALready so many years these UMNO has sucked the oil royalty. Now only they want to review:

    Sabah CM: Petroleum royalty sharing formula is due for a review

    They, Be End, are now scared and afraid of people’s power to change.

    We want corruption to be ended in Be End including all MCA, MIC and Gerakan. We want Taib to be charged and all his overseas property to be confiscated.

    We want fairness on Teoh Beng Hock and

    We want the true culprit of murder of Atantuya to be brought to jail, not the 2 police who were clearly directed by their superior: Najis, the defence minister at that time.

    The Star (owned by who?) reported: ‘MACC – one of world’s most esteemed anti-graft agencies’ –

    But they dare not charge Taib and Mathir.

    You should compile all these JANJI TIDAK DITEPATI as a BOOK and distribute during the next GE.

    Kesedaran rakyat harus diperkilatkan demi menyelamatkan segala-gala mahu pun kehidupan alam atau binatang.
    Manusia tidak harus lupakan sejarah politik dalam dunia mana-man pun sentiasa memberi alasan pembangunan sehingga sistem alam semulajadi dan kehidupan rakyat diberi laluan kepada oportunis politik mengaut kekayaan dan kuasa.
    Akhirnya, masyarakat ditekan dan hamba-kan dan keseluruhan alam sekitar jadi toksik.
