    Honestly the whole issue of oil royalty for Sabah, while its important, is NOT even in the top 5 important issue to Sabah..By far illegal immigrant is the no 1 issue and second is Borneonisation of govt administration.

    Other issues more important than Sabah oil are education independence, religious freedom, judicial reform, financial and taxation independence,

    The fact that this whole issue of oil royalty is played up so highly in importance by the opposition shows what a long road Sabah is to go really to fufill the promise to its people.

    Really I hv nothin more to say about umno. As far as I am concerned umno is gone – is beyond salvage, way way beyond! Even its core is rotten.

    Correct Kit,
    Let the record show that BN / UMNO champions unfilled promises ( only sloganising ), corruption to the highest degree, and racism ( unashamely ).
    They must be replaced, put on the sideline until they reform. A break is good for them, and certainly vital for Malaysia.

    We must change the tenant at Putrajaya. Malaysians arise. GE 13 is coming. First to GE 13, then to Putrajaya.
    Change we must. Change we can. Change we will.

    My point is this, by framing the problem as that of oil royalty, the opposition is providing a means for wily Musa Aman to blunt their attack against UMNO/BN.

    The RCI on illegal immigrant is an example and yes, they are never going to fufill its promise but by announcing the RCI and drag its time and content, the opposition attack against UMNO/BN is blunt.

    The same will happen with regard to oil royalty. They are going to announce something and then drag the details and timeframe out too.. Like it or not it works and slowing the opposition in a difficult terrain as Sabah & Sarawak works UMNO/BN..
