Thumbs Up to Pakatan Rakyat. The end of BN is very near. Bring on the GE, cannot wait for it. Hidup Pakatan Rakyat!

I’m terribly neutral in politics. :stuck_out_tongue:

[size=150]HIDUP DAP, HIDUP PKR, HIDUP PAKATAN RAKYAT, HIDUP PAS as well… [/size]

so… where is THE MIRI DECLARATION then???

At least restore back 18/20 points agreement as Malaya signed in 1963

Agree, thumbs up!

I neutral too but now my life really s"ck … if no change Government mean my life no change also … :frowning:

This is impressive and seems to address some of the most common grouses of many East Malaysians. The question-I believe-is whether PKR can actually be successful in fulfilling its promises. Is it time to give it a try?

hoping for the best in the upcoming election… from the internet media it seems that the PR have good endorsement… but we never know.

If you think you are good in life then no need to change. If you think you are no good in life then sure need to change. :slight_smile:

there are three things that we can’t avoid in live…

  1. income tax
  2. death
  3. change

Money should come first … :lol:

it is crazy to expect different results by doing the same thing over and over again (or voting the same party over and over again.) Screw BN. Lets change!

So is this official already ? Congrats to PR ! Sorry, I’m newbie when it comes to politic, just a student that wants to know more … :slight_smile:

20% Royalty for Oil and Gas?

that’s too little…i was thinking about 95% for our own, 5% for them…it’s Sarawak’s resources, they have never done any good for us. i give you 5% you should laugh already…

Aiyah, don’t be so greedy lah! 20% enough for now, 4x more than what we are getting at the present. BN will never increase it beyond 5%. Bloody corrupt BN. My blood boils when I think of what BN has done to my beloved Sarawak.

Cannot call greedy because “the thing” are ours … erm … call want the best for all Sarawakian … another thing is Sarawak Government should take all the land back to Sarawakian … Government only gave land to those “Big Lapah” like SY, Woodman, Samling, Interhill, Rimbunan Hijau, WTK, … those companies rich or they become rich more or less because of logging … mean no logging they would not became a big companies like now … those logging money should for all Sarawakian not only for those fcking ashole without a*shole … how many rural people poor and become poorer because they lost their land … the only property they had use to survive for many many years … :frowning:
