S’poreans react to PAP candidate Desmond Choo saying Everton Football Club inspired him to remain in politics

Posted on 30 August 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Desmond Choo, PAP candidate for Tampines GRC — who previously lost consecutively in Hougang SMC against the Workers’ Party candidates — said in a video interview that it was Everton Football Club that inspired him to remain in politics.

The fighting spirit of the club is supposedly a source of inspiration.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “He should be joining Everton then, not PAP.”
Tak Kiu, 44-year-old sports apparel printer


sian-half-uncle “He does realise his narrative is incoherent because Everton is an underdog team and wears blue, right?”
Man See Tee, 61-year-old bookie


happy-bird-girl “If it takes football to inspire him to stay in politics, I wonder what exactly would move him to serve the people.”
Jin Kum Gong, 18-year-old sports therapist
