TSS KK Talk:Tues, 8th Sept 2015 – The Queen’s Obligation

The Queen's ObligationThere is a lot of controversial dramas when we read about the history of the Borneo states; North Borneo (Sabah) and Sarawak. After 52 years of independent from Great Britain, the dust of the Empire in Borneo should have settled down into oblivion, but instead like a phoenix, it always rise from the ashes whenever there is a new light surrounding to the mystery of The Malaysian Agreement of 1963.

One interesting point Zainnal brought up is that if the people of Sabah and Sarawak is not happy with the Federation, they can bring up their grievances to the Queen of  United Kingdom based on Her Majesty assurances to the natives of Baram who are concern about the British leaving them that is “To Uphold the Sarawak Constitution and the Nine Cardinal Principles of the White Rajah”. According to Zainnal this pledge is a universal pledge, without any constrain by time, covering both the people of Sarawak and North Borneo. Thus this becomes the Queen’s Obligation.   (Review by Donald Peter. And for more information go to http://borneogl.blogspot.com/2015/08/the-queens-obligation.html )
