Unless there is a clear change of policies by the State Government, otherwise, mere change of name from Sarawak BN to GPS is meaningless

A friend in need is a friend indeed. PBB, PRS, PDP and SUPP surely do not subscribe to such notion. They will only be friends for good time. In difficult times, they have no hesitation to dump their friends.

Only about a month ago, they were all singing praises of Najib and BN. Dr Sim Kui Hian and Abang Jo in particular, were making statements saying that Najib was the best Prime Minister for Sarawak. As late as 14-5-2018, James Masing said that he will “sink or swim with BN”. Yet, they now all quit BN, adding insults to injury.

No matter what name the 4 parties call themselves, they are still the same old component parties of the Sarawak BN, practising the same old BN policies.

Unless there is a clear change of policies by the State Government, otherwise, mere change of name from Sarawak BN to GPS is meaningless. In future, if UMNO becomes stronger, they will again go along with UMNO.
