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

Veteran PAP MP Inderjit Singh took to Facebook to announce his retirement suddenly, in reaction to the redrawing of electoral boundaries where his Kebun Baru ward was inexplicably swapped from Ang Mo Kio GRC to Nee Soon GRC.

This caused a reaction from Defence Minister and PAP Organising Secretary Ng Eng Hen, who told the media on July 27, 2015, that the retirement of MPs, especially those who have served 15, 20 or even 30 years, should be done more smoothly and in a more deliberate and dignified manner.

This turn of events suggest tension might be brewing within the party.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Fortunately Michael Palmer announced his affair internally in a dignified manner at that time and did not put it up on Facebook hastily.”
Gao Wai Yu, 43-year-old kept woman

 

sian-half-uncle “It would have been much worse and completely undignified if Inderjit Singh chose to announce his retirement in The New Paper.”
Tak Poh Zhua, 66-year-old rag-and-bone man

 

happy-bird-girl “Judging by the length and thickness of Inderjit Singh’s beard, he is definitely mature enough to announce his retirement any way he damn well pleases.”
Zhang Hu Xu, 16-year-old student

They tell the Ang Mo Kio GRC MP they still get where he is coming from even after he clarifies.

Singaporeans have proven themselves to be an understanding bunch, consoling Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Inderjit Singh, telling him they know where he is coming from.

This after they heard that he has written a clarification Facebook note on June 5 to put straight some of his earlier statements in a previous Facebook note on May 26.

Inderjit had written in the first Facebook note on May 26 about how Singaporeans are picking the shorter end of the stick while living in Singapore and this is the result of government policies that must be tweaked to realign the country’s values — essentially whatever that has been said by Singaporeans and the opposition repeatedly before.

But he has since said some of those remarks contained factual errors and has backtracked slightly.

However, Singaporeans from all walks of life are consoling Inderjit, saying that he need not backtrack because they feel him.

Wo Min Bai, a local, said: “Inderjit Singh can backtrack, but the people feel him. He speaks the language of the masses and there is no turning away from that.”

 

Singaporeans rally behind former top civil servant Ngiam Tong Dow:
S’poreans console Ngiam Tong Dow: ‘It’s ok, we know what you mean.’

This is how Singaporeans fall in love with the PAP:

They urge him to start his own political party.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have been voicing their concerns online ad nauseam, have all simultaneously fallen in love with PAP MP Inderjit Singh.

This after the MP from Ang Mo Kio consolidated, reiterated and regurgitated all the things Singaporeans have expressed concern about over the past several years in one Facebook note that is essentially whacking the PAP:

 
Inderjit wrote about how Singaporeans are picking the shorter end of the stick while living in Singapore and said policies must be tweaked to realign the country’s values — essentially whatever has been said by Singaporeans repeatedly before.

Ying Leow Loh, a local, said: “Singaporeans for many, many years have already brought up all these issues online but they were brushed aside as noise.”

“Wah, so now PAP ownself whack ownself is considered newsworthy and everyone is paying attention?”

“Inderjit should start a new political party. He confirm will have a lot of followers and get all the votes one.”

 

Singaporeans love Singapore so much they changed her name to Lee Kuan Yew:
S’pore to be renamed Lee Kuan Yew next year

Singaporeans understand PAP MP Inderjit Singh’s meaning:
S’poreans console Inderjit Singh: ‘It’s ok, we know what you mean.’

MP Inderjit Singh identifies crucial mistakes made by PAP at party convention.

Soul searching.

That was what the PAP was in for during Sunday’s party convention held at the National University of Singapore’s University Cultural Centre.

In his speech addressing 1,600 white-clad members, fourth-term Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Inderjit Singh stuck it to his pay masters and he meant business.

He said the party’s activists needed to have more say in governance from now on.

It can no longer be the case for policy-making to be driven by civil servants.

Legislative Bills cannot be presented with limited possibility of changes by MPs, while policy forums should be used to improve policy and not merely explain them.

From the start, people should be involved in policy formulation, he insisted.

The crucial mistakes the PAP made included the growth-at-all-cost policy, which was lacking in political judgement, he also said.

One of the problems is that the PAP leadership “got carried away” as policies implemented did not improve lives of Singaporeans.

Not only that, housing and foreign talent issues were mishandled. To make matters worse, the call for elections at a misjudged time only aggravated the problem as voter sentiment was already not sweet.

He also reasoned that voters perceived the government to be in a state of denial for substantiating its case with statistics that housing was sufficient and affordable.

Education minister Heng Swee Keat also emphasised the need for bottom-up constructive suggestions in the future, adding to the list of criticisms.

This is a 60-second reduction of the original article published in The Straits Times on Nov. 28.

Prior to Sunday’s sombre atmosphere, the PAP were in congratulatory mood on Saturday. Read about it here.
