General Election 2008 - A Sea Of Banners

Our election law spells out clearly that campaign may kick off straightway after nomination and to hold the brake immediately at 12:00 midnight before election day.

Initially it was only DAP and SUPP scattering around banners and posters. Later, PKR joined in and it soon erupted into a banner war.

Goodness, Sibu is now practically submerged in a sea of colourful election banners and posters of the contesting parties vying for the voters' sentiment.

So far, SUPP, DAP and PKR are well restrained in wording and depictions. This eases off my initial concern about the parties carrying things too far!

In West Malaysia where sentiment is running quite wild, emotions tend to get out of hands. In Seputeh, the explosively suggestive caricatures on the campaign billboards blew up into a hot issue. Carol Chew of BN erected several huge billboards carrying suggestive caricatures of Teresa Kok, a Seputeh incumbent from DAP. In the end, Teresa Kok had to take up the matter with EC to order Carol Chew to pull them down.

Sibu is fortunate to have been spared incidents of this nature.

Even women also make fun of their own sex

No wonder men win in the end

I heard that Robert Lau Hoi Chew has started to buy votes.That means he has no confidence in retaining Sibu seat.Although I am not a big fan of Robert Lau,I think he did quite a good job for Sibu.Wong Ho Leng is nothing but a hypocrite...compared to Robert Lau,he's a piece of crap.

For the past year since the last parliamentary election, I see not much change been done for Sibu except Sibunites in large numbers switch to Kuching, buying houses and start ti invade Kuching,. Why ?? A question to ponder? Sibu is slowly disapperaing from the map and turn into the next ghost town.

It is because of the works of people like Robert Lau and Carol Chew. Stupid politicians doing stupid things and yet people just vote for them blindly. Don't worry. Sibu, Kuching, Miri are all wiped out. Thanks to your Barisan Nasional. Now in place is Mukah.

You should write Carol Chew a letter like I did.
