Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “A lot of people are going to be promoted in The Straits Times.”
Kwa Poh Zhua, 42-year-old newspaper seller

 

sian-half-uncle “Now that PAP has fixed the opposition, they can fix Singaporeans’ problems.”
Xian Ji Puah, 63-year-old retiree

Law and Foreign Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam said it is clear that the Workers’ Party (WP) has its eye on forming the government in the future, based on what Workers’ Party chairwoman had said at her GE2015 rally last week.

WP said that if it forms the government, it will get rid of GRCs and the Nominated MP scheme, among other moves.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “No, no, Workers’ Party contest in election is so that they can get into parliament and blow air-con.”
Leng Qi Ji, 41-year-old electronic goods supplier

 

sian-half-uncle “Workers’ Party’s ambition is different from PAP’s as it doesn’t include ruining Singaporeans’ lives.”
Gong Ren Dang, 64-year-old factory worker

 

happy-bird-girl “At least the Workers’ Party has ambition, unlike the PAP.”

The mainstream media, such as Channel News Asia, has been caught slyly publishing unflattering images of opposition politicians this GE2015.

This is despite them having the resources to invest in photographers and being able to choose from a wide array of shots taken from the limited access ares dedicated for media use on campaigning grounds.

Voters beg Sports Hub: Let Workers’ Party hold last GE2015 rally there as 200,000 expected to attend

Voters beg Sports Hub: Let Workers’ Party hold last GE2015 rally there as 200,000 expected to attend

There is no other way Singapore can accommodate such a large crowd.

workers-party-rally-sports-hub

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to attend rallies as they are about getting together and feeling Singaporean, have signed a petition calling on Sports Hub to allow Workers’ Party to hold its last rally there on Sept. 9, 2015, two days before polling day on Sept. 11.

This after 200,000 people are expected to show up for the rally, which will go down in history as the largest Singapore has ever seen.

One Singaporean, See Baey Jee, said: “There are many benefits for Singaporeans to go to the Sports Hub to attend the Workers’ Party rally.”

“One of it is that it will help Singaporeans form very good memories of the place and associate it with good vibes.”

“And the next thing is that it will bring back the National Day feeling, where Singaporeans get together to do great things, such as attend a rally.”

“Lastly, it is a very SG50 thing to do: Celebrate Singapore and what it means to be Singaporean.”

“Which is to vote Workers’ Party.”

 

 

 

 

 











PAP: ‘Our rally increased by 50% more people, Workers’ Party rally shrunk by 5%’

We are getting better over time, PAP said.

pap-rally-radin-mas

From 50 people attending the rally in GE2011 to about 75 people this year, PAP’s rally attendance breaches new heights.

It appears that the tide is turning in favour of the PAP.

This after the PAP reported that this year’s first General Election 2015 rally held at Radin Mas SMC experienced a much better attendance compared to last GE2011 rallies.

A PAP source said the number of people who attended increased by an impressive 50 percent.

And this must be bad news for the Worker’s Party. From various reports, it was mentioned that their rally crowd size shrunk from 100,000 to 95,000 over a four-year period, representing a five percent decline, marking a new Low (pun intended).

Only 95,000 attended the Workers' Party GE2015 Hougang rally, marking a new Low (pun intended).

Only 95,000 attended the Workers’ Party GE2015 Hougang rally, marking a new Low (pun intended).

At the PAP rally, it was reported that the people in front of the stage blossomed from about 50 attendees previously to approximately 75 in total this year as the PAP breached new heights.

Although mainstream media reports claim that PAP rallies attracted several thousand people, it has to be noted that this figure takes into account all the people living in the HDB blocks of flats in the background who are within earshot of the rally site.

It also includes counting those living in the flats who should have been alive today, if they hadn’t died.

One PAP activist, Poh Lan Pah, maintained that his party does not take drastic steps to ensure participation and all attendees are volunteers.

He said: “The 75 people who attended tonight’s rally do so out of their own volition.”

“We only prevent them from going to the bathroom during speeches as this will open up some gaps in the crowd. And the speaker might be too demotivated to speak if he or she sees it.”

 

 

 

 

 











PAP finding fault with Workers’ Party for rewarding friends as politics should be about rewarding yourself

PAP finding fault with Workers’ Party for rewarding friends as politics should be about rewarding yourself

Rewarding others instead of yourself means having less for yourself.

PAP-manifesto-GE2015

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are generous with their giving and view friends as an essential part of a fruitful life, have come out to recognise PAP’s effort at being upset as they continue to find fault with Workers’ Party.

This after the Ministry of National Development (MND) put out a press release on Saturday, which is a non-working day, saying it found that FM Solutions and Services (FMSS) — the former managing agent of Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) — has been “grossly profiteering” off the town council.

One Singaporean, Jiak Lui, said he can understand the PAP’s feelings of unhappiness and where they are coming from: “I can see why the PAP is so upset with Workers’ Party for rewarding friends.”

“This is because it goes against the long-time tradition of politics where the norm is to only reward yourself.”

“What Workers’ Party is doing will set an unhealthy precedent of sharing the spoils of war.”

“If this carries on any further, rewarding others instead of yourself means having less for yourself in the future. This will only make entering and staying in politics highly unprofitable.”

The Ministry of National Development (MND) put out a press release on Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015, saying it found that FM Solutions and Services (FMSS) — the former managing agent of Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) — has been “grossly profiteering” off the town council.

The news comes barely two weeks before General Election 2015 polling day on Sept. 11 and on the same day the Workers’ Party is unveiling its manifesto.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “If only the Ministries and civil servants worked on Saturdays to solve problems for Singaporeans rather than trying to destroy PAP’s opponents.”
Hun Zhang, 43-year-old ex-civil servant

Mainstream media encouraged to continue baseless accusations against Workers’ Party’s Daniel Goh as it will only hurt PAP

Mainstream media encouraged to continue baseless accusations against Workers’ Party’s Daniel Goh as it will only hurt PAP

Accusations will be seen as obvious smear campaign.

daniel-goh-nus-workers-party

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see things clearly, have come out to encourage the mainstream media to continue reporting on the baseless accusations against the Workers’ Party’s Daniel Goh.

This after the mainstream media reported on an anonymous email sent to them without checking the veracity of the claims that accused Goh of having an affair with his ex-student.

Singaporeans who heard of this said the accusations must carry on even more seriously if is to have a serious impact and hurt the PAP.

One Singaporean, Gao Wai Yu, said: “If the mainstream media does not keep repeating the same accusations and keep harping on it, it will obviously look like there is no merit to it.”

“And then this will not be ideal as it becomes less obvious the mainstream media is working to help the incumbent party.”

However, other Singaporeans said they have faith the mainstream media will go into overdrive and keep reporting falsehoods as this is not below them.

Another local, Jiang Pian Hua, said: “This is the type of gutter politics Singapore has been known for and and people know from where it originates.”

“I wish the mainstream media will continue with it as they will look like they are desperately assisting the Workers’ Party’s political rivals.”

“It is really a win-win situation for all: The mainstream media gets to ruin their own reputation, PAP fails to get elected and WP forms the next government.”

WP won’t win by a landslide margin this general election, Singaporeans reassure Goh.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to eat humble pie have come out to address Goh Chok Tong.

This after Goh made some comments about Workers’ Party during the PAP’s introduction of candidates for Marine Parade GRC.

Referring to WP, he said: “They are stronger than the National Solidarity Party but they have a certain arrogance. Will that same arrogance be able to replace me and my team?”

Singaporeans who heard this have come out to reassure Goh, saying that they will help keep WP’s arrogance in check.

One Singaporean, Bu Hao Lian, who likes to reflect on his meekness, said: “As voters, it is our duty to keep the Workers’ Party’s arrogance in check. That is why we will make sure the WP will only be able to humbly beat Goh Chok Tong’s Marine Parade GRC PAP team by winning 51 percent of the votes only.”

“We would like to give the PAP our assurance that as voters, we will make sure the Workers’ Party will not win 70 or 80 percent of the votes as this will inevitably send the signal that the WP can be proud of their achievement.”

At press time, Singaporeans are also assuring Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Tanjong Pagar GRC candidate Chan Chun Sing that they will help keep the PAP arrogance in check by making sure they win with 51 percent as well.

Supply of righteous indignation ran out after being too righteously indignant about Workers’ Party AHPETC.

lawrence-wong-parliament

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who care about the health of Singapore’s MPs in parliament, have urged the PAP to remain silent about the People’s Association lapses involving money.

This after they said PAP MPs have already used up their store of righteous indignation in Februray 2015 by getting too worked up into a frenzy over the supposed mismanagement issues at opposition Workers’ Party’s AHPETC, which on hindsight pales in comparison to PA’s lapses.

One Singaporean, Seng Kee Lai, said the PAP MPs would do better now by saving up their effort, or else they will look fake: “It is hard to summon righteous indignation when you are already running low on it.”

“They should have saved up their righteous indignation previously rather than spending all of it on Workers’ Party AHPETC issue. Worse, now there’s nothing to give, they look so fake because their previous indignation was targeted at the opposition party.”

At press time, other Singaporeans said the only benefit of staying silent now is that their previous attempt at righteous indignation will only look contrived and orchestrated, which is still better than looking like petty blatant politicking just because the General Election 2015 is nearing.

Part of SG50 celebrations.

pm-lee-jdop-02

Singaporeans from highly religious walks of life decided to do something nice for Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Some 50,000 of them gathered at the Singapore Sports Hub on July 5, 2015, for the Jubilee Day of Prayer event to mark SG50 and pray for the country.

And at the same time, they allowed PM Lee to give a short speech in front of them.

According to those who were present to witness the occasion, they said they just wanted to let PM Lee experience for the first time what it is like speaking to a crowd comparable to those traditionally found at Workers’ Party rallies during election time.

Workers’ Party rallies usually draw between 100,000 to 110,0000 participants who show up voluntarily to an open field, rain or shine.

One Singaporean, Gao Zeng Zi, said every politician, especially one who runs a country, should experience what it is like to be speaking to a large crowd: “It has come to our attention that PM Lee never had a chance to address a crowd this big before. All the past PAP election rallies were poorly attended, probably 1,000 people or less.”

“We just hope to make SG50 a bit more special and memorable for him.”

“How big is the crowd during GE2015, will still be up to his party though.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 





Letter writer: Police allowing PAP activists to leave fliers outside flats will cause society to unravel

Letter writer: Police allowing PAP activists to leave fliers outside flats will cause society to unravel

This will encourage more severe anti-social behaviour to take place in society.

pap-flier

Dear New Nation,

Singapore is celebrating her 50th anniversary this year.

However, far from progressing and becoming a world class country, what we are experiencing is a deterioration of civic values.

This is after People’s Action Party (PAP) activists in Aljunied GRC, Hougang and Punggol East went door-to-door earlier this month to hand out fliers on the pretext of highlighting problems at the Workers’ Party-run town council as they are, in fact, throwing rubbish outside people’s house.

It has just been reported that even though this matter of mass littering had been reported to the police, nothing is going to be done about it.

Ad by Wikiproperty.co

Ad by Wikiproperty.co (Singapore)

Therefore, the mass littering and degradation of society’s values is going to be state-assisted because the PAP litterbugs are given a free pass to do as they please and this will cause Singaporeans from all walks of life from the whole political spectrum to follow suit.

So, what is wrong, you may ask?

Well, allowing the mass littering of dirty materials, such as fliers, is just the start of the unravelling of society as we know it.

At first, we allow people to freely put rubbish outside one another’s door.

Next, this will embolden the perpetrators of rubbish-throwing to cause more severe forms of anti-social and uncivic-minded behaviour like molest and murder to take place.

After which, it will cause the pillage and rape of entire communities and estates in Singapore.

In no time, Singapore will revert back to the days in the 1960s where riots were a way of life and people got by through means of sheer cunning, like exploiting the weak and the vulnerable, while preying on the unawares.

I seriously urge the authorities to re-look the legality of this issue of allowing PAP activists to go around leaving rubbish outside people’s doors while the people inside the house sleeps.

I want to live in a society where I can see activists from both sides clash openly rather than engage in some clandestine operation.

Because what is this? Election period already?

Can we save the clashes till then? Please?

Yours sincerely,
General Election Otaku

 

Giving out fliers in the dead of night is really littering:
