PAP regrets not whitewashing HDB flats before by-election

Blue HDB flats beside Rivervale Plaza subliminally influenced voters to choose Workers’ Party.

Painted in Workers’ Party blue, several blocks of HDB flats beside the bomb site that is Rivervale Plaza is believed to have caused residents to become subliminally influenced enough to vote for Workers’ Party’s in the recent Punggol East by-election on Jan. 26.

One psychiatrist that New Nation interviewed, said the bomb site that is Rivervale Plaza and the blue colour of the HDB flats caused voters to be reminded of their sorrow and an impending solution at the same time, resulting in them taking affirmative action towards a solution.

Tao Nao Pai, a psychiatrist, said: “People are very easily influenced by colours. You see, people who wear white are definitely pure, uncorrupted and virginal.”

“Then again, there’s Michael Palmer.”

A PAP branch activist, who refused to be named, said there was regret all around when they realised what the blue HDB flats had done: “PAP should have demanded HDB to repaint all those flats before the by-election. It is called whitewashing, for a reason.”

A directive has been issued to HDB after the Jan. 26 by-election.

It is understood that HDB has since been barred from using shades of blue that is similar to Workers’ Party blue from now to paint flats.
