PAP needs to lower aspirations to avoid greater sense of failure in next GE

Posted on 19 May 2014

Because high hopes will lead to greater disappointment.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who enjoy wearing blue are advising the PAP to lower their aspirations for the next general election.

This after Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen, said the higher cost of living in Singapore is the result of Singaporeans having higher aspirations.

One Singaporean, Mei Qian Tu, said: “Oh, I understand. This means that political parties, Singaporeans and virtually anyone who aims high will have a higher distance to fall further.”

“Therefore, by aiming to win the majority of votes in the next general election, the PAP is simply setting itself up for greater disappointment.”

Mei Xi Wang, another local, said: “If the PAP can calibrate their expectations, it won’t hurt so bad.”

“By conceding now that they have lost a good portion of Singaporeans and the earlier they recognise the ground has significantly shifted, the better they can reconcile with defeat.”
