When I read The Borneo Post this morning I was not surprised to see Stanley Jugol face on the front face, as I had received an SMS last night.
Stanley never ceased to amaze me with his mouthfull of stupid comment. Firstly, it was an announcement without prior consultation with the rest of the CEC members (appointed or otherwise). But I guess he was right, SNAP better quits Pakatan before it it is given the boot anyway.
From the ground sentiment, there are still loyal supporters of SNAP, but they are really disillusioned with what the party is going through. The die hard grassroot supporters never knew some of the appointed SNAP CEXC members, and to be correct, many of the last election candidates were not and has never been a SNAP member. Furthermore, many never agreed to what was announced by Stanley – which was seen as his personal opinion and not the official party statement.
In this coming meeting (14 May, 2011) Stanley and Edwin were in for a surprise, for there is already a plan by group of disgruntled and real supporters of SNAP to really do a “REBRANDING” they said. So we just wait by what it means. They beleive that with the present line-up and the old guards in SNAP, it is a gone-case scenario. SNAP is irrelevant. And this group believes that inorder for SNAP to be relevant and rejuvenated and getting back its acceptance, they will have to do something drastic – including sacking the President and Sec-Gen. And this group also believes in consultaion and dialogue with the other Pakatan members. They never burn their bridge behind, and always open to suggestion. Afterall the ultimate aim is the downfall of Taib and BN.
