‘Son of Punggol’ bounded by geography forever & ever

Posted on 27 January 2013

Leaving Punggol East to contest elsewhere a sign of defection, betrayal and infidelity.

If the "Son of Punggol" were to contest somewhere else, will he be considered geographically promiscuous?

If the “Son of Punggol” were to contest somewhere else, will he be considered geographically promiscuous?

Dr Koh Poh Koon will forever have to contest in the north-east Punggol area, residents from all walks of life living inside and outside of Punggol East SMC said.

This is because he is the self-proclaimed “Son of Punggol” and any attempt to leave the area to go elsewhere where the grass might be greener will automatically make him a traitor and defector.

A Punggol East resident, Gong Ren Dang, said: “If you are really the ‘Son of Punggol’, you must eat, shit and breathe in Punggol, contest in Punggol and die in Punggol, if you have to.”

“Also, got free time, don’t forget come back to Rivervale area and go clear some leaves from the drain please.”

Professional election watchers also say refraining from contesting in other areas outside of Punggol will help prevent Dr Koh from doing a Michael Palmer.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “If Dr Koh Poh Koon goes somewhere else, for example, Ang Mo Kio GRC to fill an upcoming void there, he will be seen as being geographically promiscuous.”

“In the eyes of the electorate, this is as good as porking another woman who is not your wife, a la, Michael Palmer.”
