A 32-year-old Uber driver Shirwin Eu, has picked up a nomination form at the Elections Department in a bid to contest in this coming General Election 2015.

He said he plans to run in Bukit Panjang SMC as an independent candidate and said his strength is in policies.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “This really proves that Uber needs to make their screening process for drivers a lot stricter.”
Bu An Quan, 43-year-old workplace safety manager


sian-half-uncle “I believe his actions is due to him having a misplaced trust in the concept of meritocracy and social mobility.”
Bulao Er Huo, 67-year-old ex-delivery driver


happy-bird-girl “If a guy like this asked me to be his girlfriend, it will be a natural instinct to call the police immediately.”
Wa Mai La, 17-year-old student
