PR is Not Having it Easy in Sarawak

Campaigning for the Balingian by-election is supposedly in full swing but news have been scant. In any case, Pakatan Rakyat is not having it easy in Sarawak. 

PKR stalwarts Saifuddin Nasution, Tian Chua, Rafizi Ramli and Zuraida Kamaruddin were all denied entry into the state.

Sure, Sarawak has the power to bar them but that authority must be exercised strictly within the limits of the Federal Constitution as prescribed in Article 9(3) of the Constitution and the Immigration Act. And the trio had wanted to engage in legitimate political activity. What is wrong with that? 

It is regrettable that Malaysians cannot move freely within their own country! 

Classy Celtic clinched the Scottish Premiership title in stylish fashion yesterday – their third Scottish title in a row with seven games to spare – when they ruthlessly demolished Partick Thistle 5-1. The goal scorers for Celtic were Anthony Stokes (4, 90), Liam Henderson (49), Stefan Johansen (53) and Kris Commons (90). Partick Thistle managed to get on the score sheet once through Christie Elliot (85).

The victory established an unassailable 26-point lead over second-placed Aberdeen as Celtic became champions for the 45th time. And it is the earliest the Scottish top flight has been secured since Rangers won on March 16 in season 1928-29!
Congratulations, Celtic! 

Manchester City's comprehensive victory over Manchester United in Tuesday's derby meant that all eyes were on Anfield and the Reds did not disappoint. They continued their winning streak, this time carving a 2-1 win over Sunderland.

In the thirty-ninth minute, Steven Gerrard produced a stunning free kick from 23 yards that Vito Mannone could not keep out. And in the forty-eighth minute, Daniel Sturridge curled in his twentieth league goal to make it two-zero. The Black Cats refused to surrender and Ki Sung-Yueng headed home fellow substitute Adam Johnson's corner (76). 

The Reds now move into second place.
