If cannot beat them, confuse them.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who recognise those who speak the language of the gods, are waiting in anticipation.

This after the PAP announced it will be unleashing Heng Swee Keat as the next participant in the GE2020 live debate against other opposition members.

One Singaporean, Kong See Mee, said: “Heng Swee Keat is a formidable interlocutor.”

“He can speak in long sentences and have the entire country fixate on his words for the next two days and even make many articles and memes about it.”

“If the opposition parties ask Heng Swee Keat about unemployment in Singapore, he would say, ‘For our unemployed residents, we also have a plan for the unemployed. We have a unemployment Singapore we have it together an unemployment plan. We care at unemployment’.”

“Damn powerful one.”

Other locals said Heng Swee Keat is the PAP’s trump card at convincing Singaporeans he is prime ministerial material.

Another local, Zhong Fong, said: “If the opposition parties ask Heng Swee Keat about young people’s aspirations in Singapore, he would say, ‘For our young residents, we also have a plan for the young. We have a youthful Singapore we have it together a youthful plan. We care at youths’.”

“Hear already tears will fall.”

“I would pay money to watch Heng Swee Keat debate if it was per-pay-view.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

PAP minister Lawrence Wong launched a personal attack on SDP’s Chee Soon Juan during a televised Channel News Asia policy forum debate on Sept. 1, 2015, featuring various political party representatives.

According to Chee, Wong cited a matter that happened 20 years ago as a way to continue the PAP’s tactic of character-assassination.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “At least Chee Soon Juan is happily married and not a divorcee.”
Lee Hun, 45-year-old marriage counsellor

 

sian-half-uncle “I would watch a debate where various politicians personally attacked one another for one hour straight as it will allow me to better know who I am voting for.”
Jiang Bie Ren, 62-year-old undercover police

 

happy-bird-girl “Once again, the PAP prove they don’t need a credible opposition to discredit them.”
Mei Xin Xing, 19-year-old faith healer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 











Should ministerial salaries set ministers up for life?

Should ministerial salaries set ministers up for life?

This Sunday, Dec. 4, come join the fray! A debate so lively it might knock your socks off. And then some.

By Belmont Lay

Debate. Come have some.

How much should public office holders in parliament make?

Does minimum wage apply to them? Or should maximum wage be the norm?

Does being in public service entail lower wages as it is different from slaving for the private sector? How much is too much? Should current wages be factored into future pensions?

Are public office holders benefiting disproportionately from Singapore’s economic growth?

Having a go at the ultra-piping-lava-hot button issue of ministerial salaries in a debate that would test the incisive wisdom of four of the brightest sparks our sunny island has to offer are:

1. Mrs Jeannette Chong Aruldoss, from the National Solidarity Party

2. Dr James Gomez, from the Singapore Democratic Party

3. Mr Ong Wee Min, from the National Solidarity Party

4. Mr Tan Jee Say, Candidate, 2011 Presidential Elections

And what’s a debate without audience participation?

If you’ve ever pondered about these questions and they have kept you up all night, you and your views are wanted.

If these questions are what you and your friends fight over on weekends after having one too many, you should show up too.

If your head is filled with half-baked statistics about Singaporean wages and you spend most waking hours drawing spurious correlations between them and our economy, then I guess you should stay home.

No kidding, you should come down too. They’ll make room. I think.

The National Solidarity Party Colloquium on Ministerial Salaries will be held on Sunday, 4 December, 2011 @ 1:30pm @ Parc Sovereign Hotel, 175 Albert Street Singapore 189970.
