"Raymond, don't pretend"
Datuk Richard Yong
Datuk Raymond Tan should not pretend he is ignorant about the problems
Datuk Raymond talked about the need to find out why the Chinese voted
opposition in Sarawak and support the saying of the Prime Minister that
"if you are in touch with the people, you will get their support."
Raymond talked as if he is new in politic when in actual fact he has
been in government for 17 years holding senior ministerial posts
including that of Deputy Chief Minister. He should not pretend not to
know the tons of problems faced by Sabah people.
I agreed his saying that Sabah is different from Sarawak. Yes, Sabah is
different because Sabah has got more problems particularly in the case
of illegal immigrants and fake IC.
Sabah, now being the poorest State with the highest hardcore poverty
rate plagued by the illegal immigrants, fake IC, lack of job
opportunities, muddy road, collapsed bridges, land grabs, fish bombing,
environmental hazard, economic imbalances, forced evacuation. The lists
can go on and on.
Can Datuk Raymond say he does not know of all these problems? The truth
is he never touched on these issues and that had helped him keeping his
post in government.
A lot of the people's representatives had let themselves turned into
Raymond also said that he doesn't feel the "winds of change" would blow
All the problems are serious and have long lasting effect on Sabah and
the children of Sabah. Do you expect the people allow all these
problems remain unsolved and still let the same government stay?!
Change will come, one way of another. Either the government change or
the people will change the government!
