If the travel to collect welfare payment make the collection of welfare payment a loss-making effort-why can’t the government make better arrangement when they approve such welfare payment?

Penerima di pedalaman tidak mampu ambil elaun kerana kos tinggi

August 27, 2010, Friday(Utusan Borneo)

MIRI: Walaupun mendapat bantuan elaun daripada Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat (JKM) namun bagi 200 penerima di kawasan Baram, Bario dan Mulu, ia masih tidak berbaloi kerana mereka terpaksa berbelanja besar setiap kali mengeluarkan wang tersebut berikutan ketiadaan mesin pengeluar wang automatik (ATM) yang terdekat.

The Sarawak BN /PBB leader speak as though there could be no future for the Chinese if the SUPP opt out of BN -but the party is already being abandon by the Chinese community going by the results of last state elections and the recent Sibu by-election. Is it as though that BN will forever be the government of the day-and that the BN Government will not be a fair government to all communities? But if the government is not fair to communities which are supposedly `represented’ in the state government why would any `community’ (actually only a party) want such ineffective representation? Another view on whether it make sense for the party SUPP stay on in BN is given in 2nd analysis below.

I want only 1 Bakun...


Bakun Dam has put Federal Government in a tough situation-and that allows the state government to drive a hard bargain in any transaction over the dam-whether in terms of electricity tariff or a purchase price for the entire dam. Since even the SESCO could be privatised from the state government-could the Bakun Dam be 1 day, `privatised’/sold to a politician for a song-as his pension money? Could the negotiation over the terms of departure of the CM the only thing which hold up the state elections?

Recent trends see Sarawakians and wider community getting organised more and more aginst the longest staying Chief Minister Taib Mahmud: the Sarawak Reports kicked start with a series of explosive reports on Taib’s inexplicable overseas wealth; then there is a Movement For Change Sarawak (MFCS)spearheaded by veteran journalist Francis Paul-who reportedly meet great reception for his non-party linked movement; and lately there is also another group who started a Taib Must Go facebook and tweeter page-both of which allegedly attracted snowballing responses! With such development Taib’s days is certainly numbered-as reflected by his reported offer to step down.

But will his stepping down solve all the problems in Sarawak? How about the huge machineries he set up to suppress the people there? The great wealth which was squeezed from the exploitation of Sarawak’s natural resources-which should have been used to benifit the people rather than keep them in adject poverty?
