"到了80年代，联邦政府废除砂州的英语学校，把原有的英校，转为国语学校。 这也是经过砂州州政府的同意之下所实行的政策。 人联党也有份参与这决策。"
张氏也指出，在2010年代，联邦政府通过《国安会法令》，授权给首相和几位联邦部长和联邦高官集权，可在任何时候宣布任何指定的地区为"保安区"进而实行戒严法。 这对于砂州主权运动，是一个很大的威胁。 这法令也是因为人联党和砂州的国会议员同意之下所通过和实行的法令。 对于砂州而言，设是另一严重剥削砂州权益的法令。

Before even talking about MA63 and Sarawak autonomy, SUPP and BN Sarawak should first apologise to the people of Sarawak for the erosion of the Sarawak's rights over the past 53 years.
SUPP joined the National Alliance (predecessor of Barisan Nasional) in 1970 to be part of the Federal and State Government. Since then till this day, SUPP has representation in both the Federal and State cabinets. Yet it allowed and participated in the erosion of Sarawak's rights for all these years.
In 1974, the Petroleum Development Act was passed, taking away Sarawak's rights over oil and gas. This was done with the consent of the State Government which SUPP is a part.
In the 80s, the English medium school system was abolished and all English medium schools were converted to Bahasa Malaysia medium schools. Again this was done with the consent of the State Government.
In the 2000s, stamp duties payable for the transfer of landed property in Sarawak which was supposed to be paid to the State was paid to the Federal Government. This was done when SUPP has a Sarawak State Finance Minister.
In 2010s, the passing of the National Security Council Act which gives the Prime Minister and a handful high-post Federal Officers the absolute rights to declare any region as Security Area and to impose the likes of martial law in the said Security Area. This poses a threat to the autonomy movement in Sarawak.
All these were just few examples of the major erosion of Sarawak's rights and in addition to these, there were the annual grossly unfair allocation of Development Expenditure for Sarawak which has taken place since the formation of Malaysia till this day.
ALL THESE were done with the Consent of the State Government which SUPP is a part of.
Therefore, to show its sincerity about wanting to fight for Sarawak's rights, SUPP must first apologise to all Sarawakians for the wrong that SUPP has been an accomplice to in the past half century.
More importantly, SUPP has proven to be a party with leaders who in the past were prepared to sacrifice Sarawak's rights for their ministerial posts in Barisan Nasional. What assurance the People of Sarawak can have that their present leaders are not the same breed as their predecessors?
The sell-out of Sarawak's rights by SUPP and Sarawak BN in the past half-century was possible because there was no strong Opposition in Sarawak DUN and Parliament to represent Sarawak and thus the SUPP and BN leaders could do as they like without the People even knowing it.
Therefore, the biggest protection of Sarawak's rights and the ordinary Sarawakian's interest is to have a strong Opposition in the State and Parliament, failing which history will just repeat itself.
