Why Sabahans, S'wakians are unhappy with peninsula

By CK Low

1) The political parties and their leaders in Sabah and Sarawak not only need to go back to the drawing board.  They need a massive revamp of their thinking and ideologies.  Even on the agenda of autonomy, it  is just not autonomy alone but things like own Sabah and Sarawak system within the Federal system. If you look at the Federation of Malaya Constitution and the Malaysia Agrt with the 18/20 Points Memorandum, very different federal systems was envisaged in 1963.  It was just not a federation within a federation.  Even in an "equal" federation" like in Canada, Quebec has its own education system and is  French-speaking compared to the rest of Canada which is English-based.

Lawyer says PKR is showing its true colours on illegal immigrants

Tombotuon) without having to drown the whole of Kg. Tombotuon which also will affect the nearby Kg. Lingkubang, Kg Bundu Paka and Kg. Purakogis.
