S’poreans react to PAP Lawrence Wong launching personal attack on SDP Chee Soon Juan on TV

Posted on 02 September 2015

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


PAP minister Lawrence Wong launched a personal attack on SDP’s Chee Soon Juan during a televised Channel News Asia policy forum debate on Sept. 1, 2015, featuring various political party representatives.

According to Chee, Wong cited a matter that happened 20 years ago as a way to continue the PAP’s tactic of character-assassination.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “At least Chee Soon Juan is happily married and not a divorcee.”
Lee Hun, 45-year-old marriage counsellor


sian-half-uncle “I would watch a debate where various politicians personally attacked one another for one hour straight as it will allow me to better know who I am voting for.”
Jiang Bie Ren, 62-year-old undercover police


happy-bird-girl “Once again, the PAP prove they don’t need a credible opposition to discredit them.”
Mei Xin Xing, 19-year-old faith healer

    If any of the opposition had such dirt on any member of the PAP, they would dish it out right from the start. As much as it was an unnecessary move, I am heartened to see that the PAP is being more aggressive in defending their parliamentary seats this year.

    In the case of running Singapore, it is obvious that doing great work isn’t enough to appease the people.
