Dear Leaders of Non-PAP Political Parties
As a Singaporean, I feel very strongly that the arrogant, greedy and callous attitude of PAP is doing much harm to Singapore. Their $$$ first policies (raise GDP at all cost and crazy import of foreign workers) which is literally suffocating Singaporeans leave much to be desired. The games they play with the shifting of goalposts in the many things they control (Electioneering, CPF, HDB, PA, GIC, Temasek, Town Councils, etc.) and their lack of transparency will hurt our children and grandchildren more than they hurt us. Hence, we need more opposition members in Parliament to right their wrongs. Or at least, highlight them as in AIMgate.
天 有 眼
God has eyes!
Surprisingly, karma does happen in one's lifetime - no need to wait for the next life. As recently demonstrated by Palmergate, the power of the universe teaches us not to demand of others to come clean when our own come isn't clean! For that, many Singaporeans are grateful in learning to be gracious with sincerity; not with political correctness (wayang).
Singaporeans have eyes too!
If not for the gloating of their high score in town council management and putting WP in a bad light, AIMgate would not have seen the light of day! It is because AHTC is not in the grip of PAP that we know of such depravity!
Though "AIM was not raised as an issue by any of the external auditors who audited the FY2010 accounts of these TCs", PM Lee said, "In the interest of transparency and maintaining trust in the system, I have asked the Ministry of National Development (MND) to review this transaction fully, and satisfy itself that public funds were safeguarded and residents' interests were not compromised." I guess, cum clean, PAP must!
Just how a subordinate (Mr Tay Kim Poh, Deputy Secretary of MND) can report on the shortcumings of his bosses' ministry and political party to his boss is beyond me. [Link]
Dear non-PAP political leaders and independents who wish to contest in Punggol East,
The Presidential Election has taught us that a 3-cornered (or multi-cornered) fight in Punggol East will only serve PAP best!
I was hoping that WP and SDP and the other parties would work together to come up with only one candidate to take on PAP.
Please do not let this opportunity to have another opposition member in parliament go to waste. Singaporeans who are sick and tired of the shenanigans of PAP are looking forward to the day when we can see the light (transparency) of our CPF, sovereign wealth funds and other stuff that rightly belong to us!
2011 did not see much of 3-cornered fights in the General Election which you good folks did well together to garner 40% of the votes but got less than 10% of the parliamentary seats. It is such a weird and atrocious system that citizens of Singapore wish to see changed and change we must!
And a note to Chee Soon Juan
Due to the demonization by mainstream media, I had a pretty bad impression of you. It was in 2006 when I heard you spoke in Forum in NUS that changed my mind. I thought you did great and you made much sense in your book "Democratically Speaking?" [Link]
However, your latest press conference and proposal of WP ceding to SDP to challenge PAP to avoid a multi-cornered fight is a little too rich to accept, It scares me that the feedback I have from concerned friends who loves to see more opposition in parliament goes like this:
- My husband thinks Csj is delusional in this instance. I tend 2 agree.
- I think he is losing the plot...
- Is this the price to pay for being discharged as bankrupt....Mole for PAP?
- Is he having bi-polar disorder like Ravi?
To all who aspire to be MP in Punggol East, I hope good sense will prevail on Nomination Day!
