"To Leave or Not to Leave" - that is the RM64m Question

Everyone is watching and waiting to see if the BN coalition will crumble according to this article in malaysiakini article:

"BN desertion to begin tomorrow?"
http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/84635

Since the March 8th elections, the BN coalition has been unsteady as the PM tried his best efforts to keep the BN ship steady but the winds of change are loud and strong.
After so many years of neglect and being taken for granted, the East Malaysian parties now realise that they now play a significant role in the BN balance of power.

If the BN parties in Sarawak and Sabah leave, the government will lose their majority and will have to seek other partners if it is to remain in power.
The East Malaysians have been given billion ringgit inducements disguised as development projects to remain loyal but the rumblings remain.

It only shows that this type of money politics has little effect unless the core unhappiness is tackled but it appears that the government has been slow to understand this.
We are headed towards uncharted political waters in Malaysia.

Let us hope and pray that common sense and fair play is available in large doses for the well-being of our nation.

Sabah and Sarawak should start a third block. I think Sabah and Sarawak has been sidelined long enough. As a third block, they are a force to be reckoned with. I don't think they should just leave BN and go to PR.
