Ku Li came to Sabah and created a little political storm particularly among the KDM (Kadazan, Dusun,Murut) community.His talk on the oil royalty 'Minyak Sabah Untuk Siapa" was organised by Sabah Dusun Association and Persatuan Bloggers Sabah.His talk also opened a can of worms that got some opposition politicians excited about the 'Double Six' tragedy.A friend who attended the talk says he was not impressed.
After the talk he gave an interview to the most vociferous blogger in town who also happened to be a very active member of Sabah PKR.So, don't expect a balanced and unbiased statement coming from both Razaleigh and the blogger concerned.Below is an excerpt from the interview.
Ronnie : Tengku,allow me to sidetrack my next question away from the oil royalty issue.The upcoming Hulu Selangor by-election has now been fixed by the Election Commission.Nomination will be on the 17th.April while Polling has been fixed on the 25th.April,2010.In your opinion,how would you rate the chances of UMNO/BN and the Opposition?
Tengku : The Hulu Selangor by-election will not be easy for Barisan National.PKR will draw support if it's Malay candidate is good.Barisan National will not get the support from the Malays.

As I did not attend the talk and the interview I can't vouch for the accuracy of the blogger's report or whether Razaleigh actually says it.
We all know both the Tengku and Anwar aspired to be prime minister for a long time.It was just unfortunate for Ku Li to lose his chance when he lost the party president's election to Mahathir and, thereafter, was in political wilderness for yonks.
Politics, can be full of surprises, one can never tell through the scrying pool.
