BN May Lose or A Hung Parliament If Sabah And Sarawak Don't Deliver.

Hantu Laut

Najib may lose the government in the 13th GE if Sabah and Sarawak failed to deliver the states to BN . Najib's dream of retaining the two "fixed deposit" states would go up in flame if he can't stop his lawmakers jumping ship.

Not all lawmakers that have jumped and those contemplating leaving are popular with the people but the psychological war would do enough damage to BN supports in the two states.

Adding to the already tense situation is former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad unwelcome comments on various issues that do more harm than good to Najib and the BN.Maybe, it's time for Mahathir to disappear into the shadow or keep his opinion to himself and let Najib decides what he wants to do.

Mahathir seems to be picking up tempo again and is on a collision course with Najib, reminiscence of what he did to Pak Lah before the 2008 General Elections. He may have been partly responsible for BN poor performance then.

Mahathir 's statement on the issue of illegal immigrants in Sabah has ruffled feathers, particularly  KDM leaders, both within and outside the BN. 

The illegal immigrants issue is a political tool often used by KDM leaders to garner support from the KDM community and Mahathir opening a can of worms won't make happier days.

The bigger problem is in Peninsula Malaysia where the BN is facing an uphill battle to regain its credibility among the non-bumiputra communities with the most vociferous opposition coming from the Chinese community. The urban Malays are equally disenchanted with the government whom they see nothing more than a band of thieves.This perception, shared by many Malaysians is a death knell for BN. Najib's propaganda machine failed to counter the perception. 

UMNO leaders are so inebriated with power, they are caught in a time warp that they could not escape from. The more than half a century running the nation have made them complacent, inertial, bankrupt of new ideas and politically out of sync with the people. They have become incapacitated, drifting in uncharted waters and have no idea how to deal with the oppositions. The opposition's war of attrition is gaining ground with the voters.

Their refusal to embrace the Internet in a big way shows the archaic mentality of party leaders.There is no influential pro-BN portal such as pro-Pakatan web portals the likes of Malaysiakini, Malaysian Insider and Malaysia Today. Free Malaysia Today, the new "enfant terrible" has also seen marked increase in its readership the past year. Besides the news portal, there are hundreds of pro-opposition blogs voluntarily helping the opposition in its war of attrition.

Many pro-BN blogs fall by the wayside because they, like UMNO politicians, will only work if they get paid handsomely.

Arrogance and 'bodoh sombong' abound in UMNO. They have a Home Minister who is out of touch with the world, a misaligned Deputy Prime Minister who is politically divergence from the Prime Minister and a misinformed Minister of Information who planned to turn a National Day celebration personifying the ruling party more than the nation and the people.

Some of Malaysia's billionaires and millionaires may already be covertly financing Anwar and the opposition as insurances in case Pakatan Rakyat come to power,  they will not be left out.

The same happened in Sabah in 1985 when Pairin's barely 47 days old PBS took on Berjaya, some Chinese towkays gave money to both sides, to protect their business interests. PBS won with a single seat majority.

If Sabah and Sarawak failed to deliver at least two-thirds each of their MP seats, Najib can kiss good-bye the government, or if any consolation for Najib, Malaysia may end up with a 'hung parliament'

BN's collapse has started. It's God's will. After all the people own the country and elect the gov't to SERVE, not to rob them.
UMNO leaders are always creating and raising false issues. Treating people like fools. These morons - the greatest disgrace to Malaysia. These won't last 3 months in bersih, democratic countries like NZ, Aust, US, UK & Canada; and you've given them 55 years & lost what experts assessed at over US100billion = RM300,000million = RM300,000,000,000.
Gerrymandering. Frauds in electoral roll with aliens, duplicates & phantoms. Buying & bribing…all using your money!. Biased EC Chiefs from UMNO. Unfair monopoly of media, heli, vehicles, boats, venues & resources. All using your money to destroy you!

Even in far-away, neutral New Zealand we are boiling mad, your BN Gov’t is outrageously crooked and dishonest, & for how many decades now! Horrific plunder and robbery, skinning & fleecing the whole country. eg Taib in Sarawak, holding 3 supreme portfolios of Chief Ministr, Finance Ministr & Planning & Resources Ministr, plundering for 31 yrs. Your PM pretends nothing’s there…..now he revenges on Rafizi for the NFC cows, even after 3 murders: Ross Boyert (Taib’s former US aide), Manser (native & rainforest activist) & Altantuyaa (Scorpene $$ claimant), & after BN lost over RM300billion in 55 yrs. Yr PM flies a new RM200m plane & Taib rides Rolls Royce. In NZ our PM flies 2nd Class; here Taito P Field, an MP was jailed for a few years for corruption (using Thai immigrants to paint his houses). How long would yr Dr MM, Najib, Taib all the BN/UMNO/PBB cronies, MACC, Police chiefs last in a democratic country like NZ, Aus, UK, US or Canada before going to jail? 1 mth? You elected yr Gov’t to serve you, how can you tolerate them for another day!

Bro HL,

I'm not sure whether to congratulate you on this article or warn you!
Why, well, Article 114A that's why!
I'm sure you understand the implications of this article. If I'm not mistaken in was passed through Parliment without proper debate & again if I'm not mistaken it was passed through at 3am or so in the morning!
Now you have to be careful on what comments you allow in your Blog or you may be liable!
A sad, sad, sad day for Malaysia bro!
Coming back to your article, well, now you see what TDM is doing? he needs NTR out so he can push through his beloved son through Mr. DPM!

SM,

I am not sure what article you referring to?

Anyway, the comments here are mild compared to what appeared in pro-opposition blogs and news portal.

Bro HL,

You didn't know about Article 114A?

Article 114A...in a nut shell...

"Individuals and organizations administering, operating, or providing spaces for online community forums, blogs, or webhosting services are automatically liable for content published through their services, on their devices, or in their name", thus making users liable for anything published in their name, even if their identity was stolen online".

You are right about the Pro-Opposition Web Sites...

This Law was passed to ensure that the Government can charge anyone they see as breaking "their" law...this Law was pushed through quickly & at the last minute so as to curtail the Opposition in Malaysia.

Think about it, on the one hand we have the Super Corridor that ensures freedom of Internet use & then they introduce a law that curtails freedom...! Only in Malaysia bro!

Just be careful what you say & what you publish...although you are Pro-Government, you never know, if someone hacks into your site & places a seditious article, you could be in serious shit!

SM,

I have read about it, it does not bother me.You should be responsible for what your write.If you slander somebody than be prepared to be dragged to court.

I don't think it is such a bad law as the opposition made it out to be.Only the opposition and pro-opposition followers worry because they like to tell lies most of the time and slander people they don't like.

If I call the PM or Anwar stupid, that's not slander, that's an opinion.
