They were impressed by themselves, many thought to and about themselves.
This after they each gave a speech in Parliament for the Budget debate and were moved to tears by the force of their own rhetoric, crispness of their diction, insight into the plight of the suffering and overwhelming fevour of their own conviction to right all wrongs in Singapore society.
One PAP MP was thought to have thought to himself: “I spoke with a conviction I never felt since I got elected during GE2015 in September 2015.”
“I was extremely touched by the sound of my voice and the position I espouse. I believe Singaporeans from all walks of life will hear my speech and weep as I have wept, as I was really, really moved.”
Other MPs were reported to have thought to themselves that they too did extremely well and have moved even themselves to do soul-searching in the aftermath of their words having been spoken.
Another MP from the ruling party, was believed to have thought: “This speech will convince all my naysayers that I have so much substance and belief.”
“I nailed it completely. The electorate made the right decision giving me this strong mandate. This will make me a superstar MP praised by the Internet and social media people.”
“I have so much belief and so much to give. It’s amazing.”
At press time, Singaporeans from all walks of life were not aware parliament was in session.
