SIBU: Finally Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) has no choice but to eat humble pie by admitting that there are few problems in the Rajang Park which the late MP Datuk Robert Lau Hoi Chew failed to address in the past.
One of the problems is sewage tank which the late MP had ignored despite of the fact that he was the Malaysian Toilet King.
It does not make sense for the late MP to fail to address this issue when Rajang Park was basically his play ground.
But then again, the late MP was a SUPP MP and therefore it is not a surprise at all for him to fail to clean up his own play ground while busy pretending to be busy with his ministerial work.
And because of him, his cousin Robert Lau Hui Yew has to literally be on his knees begging the voters not to punish him for the mistakes commited by his late cousin.
He promised that he would go to each house in Sibu to understand the problems of the constituents after he wins the by-election.
May be Robert Lau is still under the impression that the rakyat are still as they were 30 years ago.
Just say sorry and the rakyat will forget it???!!!
Why must the rakyat forget what his cousin had done and subsequently vote for him???
Is he thought that the Chinese are easily influenced as the other races???
As one SUPP leader said the Chinese are different from the other races.
"They (the Chinese) will take what you give but it does not mean that they will give you their votes."
"At the same time, you can't give them money because they already have the money."
So, it is a waste of time and money for SUPP to campaign in the Sibu parliamentary by-election because more or less the Chinese have made up their mind.
Their votes are for DAP ... and the Bumiputera also agree with their choice.
Thus, it is going to be a landslide victory for DAP in the by-election...
