Announcement: New Nation to support Midas Jin Jue Lui in Punggol by-election

Announcement: New Nation to support Midas Jin Jue Lui in Punggol by-election

Tags: , ,

Minority opposition party, the Every Day Party (EDP) has announced that it would field Midas Jin Jue Lui, also known as Mr Brown s/o Sim Lim, as its candidate for the upcoming Punggol East by-election on 26th Jan.

A “non-partisan non-organisation founded in 2011 to counter boring politics in Singapore”, it has yet to register as a political association as none of its founders are dashing enough to have their mugshots displayed in public.

Therefore, it is likely that Jin will be contesting as an independent candidate using the EDP as an election vehicle to mobilise popular support online.

As of 9 Jan 2013, Jin held two portfolios — Acting Minister in the Ministry of Healthy Bowel Movement and Plywood as well as Minister without portfolio.

He was seen in a PAP campaign video to be “behind” the PAP’s candidate, ass doctor colorectal surgeon Koh Poh Koon, “100 percent”. Yet he appeared to have had a change of heart two days later.

According to sources within the EDP, he became frustrated with piles of administrative work and in his own words, decided to “tear the PAP a new one”.

The announcement that Jin would be a candidate in Punggol came as a shock to the People’s Action Party, who had been expecting a resounding victory in line with an opinion poll done by nation-building press The Straits Times.

“We all knew Midas to be a bit of a turd. But for him to turn the other cheek, to quit the party and to abandon his Ministry just two days after releasing the campaign video… that speaks of a shitty character,” said a member of Jin’s inner circle within the PAP.

The Workers’ Party and the Singapore Democratic Party, both which are expected to contest in the election, could not be reached for comment as they are busy fighting each other.

“When we saw Midas’s campaign video on his website, we were floored by his sincerity in curing the anal-retentive disorder that is plaguing the nation,” said New Nation co-founder and Yahoo! columnist whose name begins with B and ends with T. The editors of the news website which is usually 50% real, have pledged to donate $1 each to Jin’s campaign fund, together with $5,000 worth of moral support each.

This leaves Jin with $997 to raise to cover his election deposit.

“Jin will probably not lose his deposit in this by-election,” said self-styled political pundit Eric de Yaya. “With his partial Indian heritage, he will get some cache from the minority races, and especially those who have known his father, Sim Lim s/o Rochor. His entering the fray would make this by-election a seven-cornered fight, which means a lot of corners.”

Jin could not be contacted for comment and despite multiple reminders to collect his nomination papers, he appears to be more interested in watching Korean dramas than contesting in the election.

We are sure this is a cunning political ploy. Of some sort.

SBS Transit NEL train shows solidarity with SMRT drivers who were on strike.

Blogfather, Mr Brown, has just updated on Facebook at about 7 p.m. that the North East Line train his wife was on failed to stop at Dhoby Ghaut station.

At about 7 p.m. on Nov. 30, 2011, SBS Transit North East Line train failed to stop at Dhoby Ghaut station prompting talk that the inanimate train is standing in solidarity with the SMRT bus drivers who went on strike earlier in the week.

According to him, passengers were cursing and swearing when the train went past Dhoby Ghaut station without rhyme or reason.

The actions of the NEL train to refuse to do what it is supposed to goes to show that even an inanimate object is capable of understanding what is fair and just.

And it is demonstrating that it is standing in solidarity with the SMRT bus drivers who went on strike this past week by refusing to drive buses to bring attention to their shitty living conditions.

Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin is expected to berate the actions of the NEL train shortly on Facebook.

Mr Brown starts new online venture to promote civil discourse

Well, not really new but new enough… here is yousayisaywhoconfirm.sg!

Called yousayisaywhoconfirm.sg – due to blogger Mr Brown’s fascination with this particular army phrase – it is actually an initiative by four prominent interweb people who want to have more intelligent discussions with a bit of funny to get to the truth.

No more headless, faceless, ballless, nameless and aimless trolls talking nonsense and only knowing how to bitch and whine about everything and nothing in particular!

No more anonymity! No more faux-democratic speaking out!

Now there is humour- and intelligence-infused discussion!

So who are they?

Mr Brown: Our favourite, Godfather of Singapore bloggers.

Miyagi: Also quite lao jiao blogger.

Adrianna: Techy, lao jiao blogger.

Belinda Ang: Not as well known but quite lao jiao too.

(“Lao jiao”, loosely translated from Hokkien to England, means “old bird”.)

So why did they start the site? According to the YSISWC About Us page, because they feel “song”, which loosely translated from Hokkien to England, means, “stimulated”.

And Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also mentioned this site in his National Day Rally this year! And this was only started in August this year! Fwah zhai! (“Fwah” is synonymous with “Wah lan eh!” or “Woah!”, while “Zhai”, when tightly translated from Mandarin to England, means “narrow”, but in fact, means “awesome”.)

Here are some snippets:

– Belinda thinks that Minister Yaacob Ibrahim should be given the benefit of the doubt because his 16-year-old son has dual citizenship doesn’t make Yaacob incapable of discharging his ministerial duties ably.

– Miyagi thinks the repetitive and persistent postings about anti-captivity on Resorts World Sentosa Facebook page does not mean it has been hit by cyber harassment. It is just people taking their stand and being louder than usual.

Based on these postings so far, New Nation Man approves.
