What is the difference between Barisan Nataional and Pakatan Harapan when the people of Sarawak are continously getting screwed ?

Malaysiakini : 'Taib Mahmud cleared of all wrongdoing by AGC' - Liew. Sarawak governor Abdul Taib Mahmud had been cleared of all criminal wrongdoing by the Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC), said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Liew Vui Keong. "After deliberating the existing evidence, the AGC decided that all the investigation papers involving the issue would be closed in 2013," he said. Back in 2013, AGC was helmed by attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail. That was the old shit called Barisan Nasional, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Liew Vui Keong!
Remember Taib is a close buddy of our great Mamakthir. AFTER the alert over the country's RM1 trillion national debt and the calls for patriotic citizens to donate to Tabung Harapan to plug this debt hole, we are now told that a new tallest skyscraper, "Tower M" is to be built to dwarf the soon-to-be tallest TRX 106 ("Tower N"?).
So, whatever happened to the call for austerity in government spending and the need to cut down on grandiose schemes? No prizes for guessing where the money for this latest white elephant will come from …
The skyscraper will be built by KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd (KLCCH), the property investment arm of our prized national oil company and supposed "sovereign wealth fund", Petronas.
During Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's earlier tenure, Petronas had to build the then tallest building Dayabumi in the eighties and then the Petronas Twin Towers in the nineties. Does anyone know if there is any breathing soul in Dayabumi at the moment?
Meanwhile, the office occupancy rate and average rental in Kuala Lumpur city centre, Kuala Lumpur fringe and Selangor are expected to continue their down trend in 2018.
Do Malaysians realise that we have failed to build a sizeable sovereign wealth fund like that of Norway's (US$1 trillion in assets, it made an annual return of US$131 billion in 2017 alone) simply because the substantial revenue from Petronas all these years has been squandered on grandiose projects and to bail out failed crony capitalists?
