Govt orders free World Cup to subdue opposition

Prime Minister’s office to foot the bill

world cup 2014

The Singapore government has ordered Mediacorp to ensure that all World Cup matches are screened on Channel 5 without advertisements and interruptions. Broadcasting the World Cup on this free to air channel, it said, will win the hearts and minds of Singaporeans in light of the clusterfuck that has emerged from the Roy Ngerng saga.

“I last time angry that my money was locked up in CPF, and I couldn’t afford my Singtel subscription. Now I can watch World Cup for free, angry for what?” said Hoh Seh Liao, a recreational football player who regularly sprains his ankles during the weekend.

As it was Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong who ignited the furore by suing CPF blogger Roy Ngerng, it is only befitting that his office should foot the bill.

“Workers’ Party can do this annot? Cannot right? No money right? Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah,” said PAP spokesperson Dam Chare Dish, when asked if the move was aimed at subduing the opposition.

Note: You might have a better chance winning some money at  world cup 2014 betting, than seeing this actually happening.
