What a waste, they said.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like it when people who make mistakes admit their error, said they are feeling upset that the Singapore Democratic Party has beaten the People’s Action Party to the lunchtime rally slot at the promenade area beside UOB Plaza near Boat Quay on Monday, Sept. 7, from noon to 2pm.

This after many voters said they had taken leave specially to attend the rally, while many others had planned to skip lunch as they had personally wanted to listen to Lee Hsien Loong say sorry.

One disappointed voter, Zhen Shi Wang, said: “When I saw Lee Hsien Loong say sorry back in GE2011 and admit that his party had made errors, I felt very happy, first as a Singaporean, then as a voter.”

“Even more so when I eventually voted for the Workers’ Party instead.”

However, not all Singaporeans are looking forward to the apology alone.

Other Singaporeans said witnessing PAP politicians admit to the electorate that they had not done as well as expected and then pleading with voters to be given another chance at political office will always be a sight to behold.

Another local, Qu Tou Piao, said: “I’m so not used to all these attention that PAP politicians are showering on me as a voter this past GE2015 week, especially when I’ve been neglected by them the last four years.”

“But I feel empowered seeing political leaders grovel for votes.”

“It’s all very cathartic.”

At press time, other voters are betting on which PAP candidates will be crying during rallies.

Publicity stunt promoting basic drill commands in CBD turns into Special Ops Forces training.

Whole lot touch the tree and come back

Whole lot touch the tree and come back

A total of seven Singaporean Sons were admitted to A&E after a publicity stunt showcasing basic drill commands went awry.

This occurred around 2 p.m. in the CBD.

Initially, the publicity stunt — believed to have been the brainchild of some insensitive non-local — was supposed to be about letting the public shout innocent commands at the Singaporean Sons and they will act it out accordingly.

However, things got intense when some locals started using Hokkien expletives. This immediately caused the Singaporean Sons to feel like they were back in BMT.

Several Singaporean Sons were seen going into lenient rest position, while others started to knock it down.

Others were seen doing leopard crawl on the grass patch outside of Raffles Place MRT station.

Some others — about seven of them in total — who were told to touch the tree and come back repeatedly without water parade, fainted.

To make the scenarios more intense, several vehicles at the side of the road were parked in idle position and releasing exhaust gas to emulate smoky conditions.

All of it felt like Special Ops Forces training.

One Singaporean woman who was witnessing the whole scenario while holding onto a sliced papaya after lunch, said: “Wah today weather quite hot ah.”

All seven admitted to A&E have been discharged. They will be given 2 days Attend C and one day Attend B and excuse PT.
