Easterly wind is blowing

The easterly wind is blowing. The Sabah Progressive Party is holding a press conference meeting today at 2pm to announce a major decision. Until last evening, SAPP officials maintained silence on speculations that the party was pulling out from the Barisan Nasional. According to informed sources, this is unlikely to happen. But the SAPP is expected to unveil some kind of declaration that it wants the Prime Minister to do. It also want to see what kind of reaction it would receive following the press conference today, particularly from the other Sabah parties. In the semenanjung, the talk of MCA defecting to the Pakatan Rakyat as claimed by Anwar Ibrahim is a non-starter. The party, which has 15 MPs, has reacted strongly to the claim and even among political analysts, not many believed the claim and is wondering why Anwar brought it up. From the land below the wind, let's see whether the easterly wind will turn into a storm.

I am sick of all the jump, will jump business and I am quite sure a lot of people are sick of it too. Anwar is the chief rumor monger of them all and a lier. If he has the numbers then just do it why go on and on with no result? He is nothing but an empty vessel.

SAPP with mere 2 MPs will not open the flood gate for BN components crossover to PR. If and when they do get out of BN, it doesn't mean joining PR immediately. I think they will instead stay independent.

Being independent would position SAPP as the party that champion Sabah's interest, and not seen as opportunistic over the current political situation.

Ah, cant wait for VAYU Bhagawan
to blow the day lights of our 18th Century mentality in politics.....colour and religion based nonsense.


How I sometimes wonder, how brave he must be,
He lays his life on the line to protect you and me.

I wish sometimes I could just understand,
Why people don’t reach out more, or lend a hand.

I could never imagine to face what he does everyday,
A child abused and crying to not be taken away.

A drug dealer on the streets again,
Knowing he sold drugs to his friend.

A drunk hits the side of another car while running a light,
The drunk was fine, but that family saw their last night.

There’s a shoot out, his partner and friend is down, after many years,
He just says, “You’ll be OK!” Knowing he sees the truth in his tears.

Then his day finally comes to an end,
And he goes home to family and friends.

How was your day, they always want to know,
He just always smiles, and says same ole, same ole.

He knows they really care and want to know,
But, it’s not a place many people could go.

He knows the job has to be done,
He fights the fight that must be won.

He takes pride in what he chose to do,
To serve and protect me and you.

So, next time you get mad or feel he earns his pay,
Ask yourself, “Could I be as brave as him for a day?”

I am still against any hopping strategies adopted by PR. This is just unethical and tantamount to cheating the voters. Anyway, politics are politics and ONLY they (the politicians) KNOW what's best for the country. Sigh!
