Miri Isn't Going to Replace Kuching as the Capital of Sarawak

The Queen isn't impressed

  Here's why it is not a very clever statement: The capital is going to be capital, that's it. Miri, even if it is going to be better developed than Kuching, is still not going to be a capital.
Haha, no.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem was quoted as saying "Miri is catching up with Sibu and Kuching", and that it would not be surprising that if it overtook the popularity.  You don't make a city a capital of the state just because of popularity. It would look like this NST journalist confused "popularity" with capital.

Canberra is the capital of Australia. But Sydney is much more popular. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand. Auckland is more well known. You getting da drift now?

If Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem had really said those words, he probably only said it to please the Mirians. But it's not a clever statement at all. This Mirian certainly isn't impressed. The Queen was even less impressed.

End of story.
