Posted on 01 March 2015

It is because they might have mistaken white and blue for the same colour.

In light of the recent worldwide argument about whether the dress is white and gold or blue and black, there has been at least one important revelation: People in general do get their whites and blues mixed up.

This is an important finding that has widespread ramifications for Singaporeans because it answers this crucial question: So why exactly did Singaporeans vote for the Workers’ Party in the General Election 2011?

The mystery, at least according to scientists, is solved for now.

If you look closely at this picture, you can tell that the Workers’ Party’s traditional blue colour is very obvious set against a green leafy background:

But if you looked at this picture, you can see the blue shirts on a blue background reveal them to be PAP white:

Therefore, Singaporeans from all walks of life voted the Workers’ Party because they saw them wearing the same colour as PAP’s white.

There you have it. Science, ladies and genetlemen.

 

This is why the PAP is the same as Workers’ Party:
