Batang Ai: Taib “the Glue” to lead 5,000 BN supporters


Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Taib Mahmud is expected to lead some 5,000 BN supporters to the nomination centre at the Lubok Antu Mini Stadium this morning, reports the Borneo Post.

Among the BN big guns expected to join him in the show of support for their candidate, Malcolm Mussen Lamoh, are Umno vice-president Shafie Apdal, Joseph Pairin Kitingan and Parti Rakyat Sarawak president James Masing.

On the opposing side, Khalid Ibrahim and other PKR leaders will accompany their candidate, Jawah Gerang.

Meanwhile, James Masing has praised Taib sky-high, referring to the chief minister as the “glue” that binds the Sarawak BN coalition together.  For an ‘entertaining’ read, click here.

Masing gets ‘extra points’ for sycophantic comments such as these:

Pehin Sri, in spite of all the half truths and half lies, and some criticisms that are down right lies, you have carried the burden of leadership with pride and you have kept the coalition going despite the challenges you were and are made to face.

Some of these challenges are man-made – and I was one of those who made them at one stage – while others are natural disasters.

To avoid the dangers of these political pitfalls and come out shining is not an easy task. You have done it, sir, with flying colours.

For each sticking purpose you must have the right glue
You may have to try several kinds before you get the right clue
It’s no simple matter to get it suddenly out of the blue
Knowing too well that many things flow through the old flue

Heard that Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan will be there to support BN candidate. Remember 1985 in Tambunan. Yeap, he is NOT RELEVANCE anymore. Time comes, he will be forget. Sabah untuk orang Sabah is mere bulls….

What a glowing and flowery speech by a running… I could puke!
The beautiful thing in life is, when you have crumbs to throw,
there are bound to have stray … sniffing around…in the kingdom of the blinds the one eyed is the king…king of …
Maybe, he can tell his righteous when the time comes to his Maker how
clean and good a man he was…and may God save his soul!

A good leader is the one vho lives and mangle with his fellow Malaysians. An exemplary leader is Tuan Guru Nik Aziz who just live in a simple house together with his Kelantanese. A useless leader is the one who goes around in their own Rolls and Merce and own mansions and houses as bid as a palace with ill gotten gains… while their people lives in downright dilipidated houses …some even without the basic necessities attach.

Good …-polisher, Mr.James Masing

His struggle in politic is to get himself taken care of – but his people?
