PRS: Umno is a bully, so is PBB too !

Malaysiakini today reports, a divisional leader of the Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) a junior component party in the Sarawak Barisan Nasional (BN) had said today Umno had been thinking of dominance over everyone all these while and so did its sister organisation in Sarawak, Parti Persaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB).

Well, another bully case was reported. PBB which "represents" Umno in Sarawak is taking charge of the rest of the BN component parties in that state and has been too powerful for more than twenty years.

Will the other BN component parties in Sarawak able to tolerate this forever? In Sabah, SAPP had quited BN, which might be due to the fact that Umno had dominated Sabah BN and the state's government machinery and its native BN component parties were sidelined in most of the major policy and decision making in that state.

The real problem here is, can the other BN component parties really come out and stand against Umno and PBB's dominance of "ketuanan" and fight for their equality within the cracking coalition? Are they able to overcome the almighty Umno and PBB with their guts and strength?
