Am I angry?

Am I angry when someone says that the Ibans are easily influenced by money during election times?

To be honest, no. I am not angry with the person who says it. But I am angry with the Ibans themselves, because Ibans do not know how to cheat. For example, if a candidate gives them money to influence them to vote for him, they will surely vote for him because of the fear of “tulah” (curse).

This the Ibans do not learn. They should emulate examples of almost all our YBs who promise the voters this and that. While we must admit that some promises do materialize, but the majority of them is empty. And yet they do not “tulah”. Instead of “tulah”, they become “kaya raya” taking away our NCR land.

I am just the opposite of Andrew Shilling, SUPP Sibu Bumiputra chairman. He is very angry with SUPP assistant minister and state assemblyman for Dudong, Soon Choon Teck who hinted that the Iban party members were easily influenced by money politics.

Soon said: “The socio-economic position of the Ibans is still behind others, and as such they could be easily influenced by money politics.”

Reacting to these remarks, Shilling who is also a political secretary to the chief minister demanded an immediate apology from Soon. And he led a group of Iban members from the State constituencies of Pelawan, Nangka, Bukit Assek, Dudong and Bawang Assan to ptotest against Soon’s statement that was carried out by the Chinese papers on Sunday.

He said to the press that the Iban members felt insulted and feared that the issue might divide party members into Chinese and Ibans.

When Soon failed to respond to his demand to apologise, Shilling, according to The Borneo Post today said that legal actions could be taken against him. – The Broken Shield

It is no good for someone,especially a non Iban, to say Iban voters are easily influenced by money politics.
Put it this way, can you say if non Iban or non Dayak or to be more specific a Chinese oran Indian voter is given RM1,000 to givehis or hervote away to that party or candidate, he will nottake themoney?

In urban areas, people do not offer money in exchange for votes.

They live it to the voters what is the best.


Opposition can only promise but cannot deliver any projects.BN can promise and deliver projects. True some projects arenot carried inspite ofthe promises. This may be due to several rasons,notnecessarily promises never meant to be kept.

Which BN YB wants to make empty promises ifthey aspire tostand again in the same kawasan.

I mixed with a lot of medical consultants in the private hospital I am working with. After the Batang Ai election, I got friendly-condemned by them that the Sarawakian especially the Ibans are still tolerating the corrupt BN politicians.Despite the bad roads, no treated water supply, no electricity and poor condition of living, still supporting BN.

Stupid! We dayaks never learn.Its about time we dayaks learn the crafty and slimy ways of the orang "chanton". The cina have always treated us with contempt yet we still cling onto SUPP like leeches. Why? Simply because of money. Yes $$$$$. The chinese always gets what they want from us because of our vice in "ngirup" and in "lankau". So, we can't deny that Wong has a point here. Can't the dayaks see that they are just nothing but pawns in SUPP. Dayaks in SUPP are like buffaloes with rings in their noses and led by orang cina for political gains. In the last 40 years, what did SUPP do to the help the dayaks? Was ever a dayak made a deputy chairman of SUPP? Now do we see how stupid we are?

not only open secret but a fact

if ashame of it then change our attitude

HI THERE EVERYONE .
WE MUST ADMIT THAT NOBODY REFUSES AN OFFER EVEN IF THE AMOUNT IS AS SMALL AS RM10.00 BUT THE FACT AS BROKENSHIELD PUT IT, IBAN TAKUT TULAH. IBAN MEANS LOYALTY BUT LOYALTY WITHOUT THOUGHT. THAT IS WHY IBAN ARE EASILY EXPLOITED. POLITICIANS EXPLOITED THEM ON THEIR STUPID LOYALTY.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE IBAN AND THE CHINESE IS THAT CHINESE TAKE BUT "YOU CANNOT SAY I DONT VOTE FOR YOU, YOU HAVE NO PROOF. IF YOU GOT THE PROOF, THEN YOU CAN BE CHARGED UNDER OSA BECAUSE WHOEVER MANAGED TO GET INTO THE VOTING PAPER INFRINGES OSA. MY VOTE IS SECRET". THE IBANS DO NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF THINGKING OR KNOWLEDGE. BECAUSE OF THE INSUFFICENT KNOWLEDGE, THEY ARE EXPLOITED.
AS AN IBAN, I DO NOT GET ANGRY WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT IBAN CAN BE BOUGHT, IT IS VERY TRUE.
NADAI GUNA KITAI BELALAI KE PENGAWA DIRI MR SHILLING, BE DOWN TO EARTH, DONT DREAM. WE IBAN ARE DREAMERS BECAUSE MOST OF THE TIME WE ARE DOSED TO MABUK(NGIRUP LANGKAU AJA-AJA BAH).
SORRY BUT THINK ABOUT IT.

We think that we cant be bought and its hurt when someone say so...but do our action/s really the opposite?

Did anyone observed? At this moment..how many beautiful dayak young ladies are now in the pub/karaoke with those tawkey or even none tawkey but have money...?

What is that and Why?
I dont think they re doing it willingly. Where things goes wrong? Pitty them...

oh unggal shilling,

why get emotional for the wrong reason? as a BBA (Ohio) graduate, you should be educated enough to admit your own weaknesses. To solve a problem you must:

1.Define The Problem
2.Develop A Plan
3.Implement Plan
4.Evaluate

......alo akih, if u cannot even define your problem right, baka ni nuan ka nyadi tuai bansa...of courselah deviating the real problem will make u look smart ..coz u potray urself to champion the iban cause...(to you)....but to the rest of us, u r making a mockery of ur own race.

utai ka de sebut cina nya endang sigi our core problem...nama kabuah kitai ngenggai ka iya.....grab the problem by the throatlah bro...
