Highly religious S’poreans petition Sun Ho to replace Madonna at Sunday’s concert

Highly religious S’poreans petition Sun Ho to replace Madonna at Sunday’s concert

Tags: , ,

Sun Ho is a much more wholesome and appropriate performer with international experience.


Highly religious Singaporeans from that particular walk of life, who like to dabble in other people’s business, have started another petition.

This time they are demanding highly religious leader Sun Ho to take over from Madonna at Sunday’s concert so that she can perform her wholesome and uplifting songs for the masses in Singapore, instead of letting a blasphemous heathen ruin the country’s moral fabric.

One highly religious person, Yeshu Aini, said Sun Ho was the perfect alternative as she is honourable and a household name in Singapore, having established herself through her creative talents: “Sun Ho’s music and dance moves will allow Singaporeans to appreciate and understand what being morally upright and righteous is all about, as she is a highly religious person who was never found to have done any wrong or been convicted of any crime.”

“Her conscience is as pure as a virgin.”

“The last thing Singaporeans as a whole need to see is a performer in gaudy clothing grinding to salacious beats, engaged in orgiastic displays of debauchery and spouting non-religious lyrics, while carrying out all manner of movements in a sexually-explicit manner.”

“We can do without that affront to our collective moral conscience and mainstream values.”

Will you give Sun Ho one Majulah?

S’porean who signed anti-Adam Lambert petition apologises, misread ‘usher in 2016′ as ‘usher in 1016′

It is only appropriate to persecute gays in 1016, he said, clarifying why he signed petition in first place.


A healthy, morally upright and straight Singaporean man, who experiences varying states of tumescence occasionally against his body’s will, has publicly apologised.

This after he signed the anti-Adam Lambert petition calling on MediaCorp to remove the gay icon from its star-studded Celebrate 2016 countdown show on Dec. 31 to usher in the new year.

However, after signing the petition and sharing the link to it on Facebook, he noticed that he had misread “usher in 2016″ as “usher in 1016″, and realised the petition was not a joke about how gays must be persecuted if this was 1,000 years ago.

The Singaporean man, Koo Gu Jeow, said apologetically: “I initially thought the petition to discriminate gays was to usher in the new year 1016, as a kind of, ‘Haha, this is such a good ironic joke’ thing, now that the end of year is coming.”

“And then I read it again, I realised the petition is meant to be taken seriously, like the petition organisers really wanted to ban gays in 2016.”

“That’s when I realised the folly of my reading skills.”

At press time, the ban Adam Lambert in Singapore petition to usher in 2016 has received more than 13,000 signatures.

This after they find MDA useless as they rejected petition by Singaporeans to close down STOMP.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who enjoy being galvanised around a cause, have started a new online petition.

The new petition is to call for the Media Development Authority to be closed down for good.

This after a petition last week to close down voyeurism site STOMP collected more than 22,000 signatures, but the MDA said they were helpless in acting on behalf of Singaporeans.

One local, Mei You Yong, said: “So if the MDA cannot act on the citizens’ behalf to take action, then what use is it good for? Whole day only can sit around and make recommendations.”

“This kind of job quite easy to do. Give suggestions only. No need to act on them. I also want.”

However, another Singaporean said closing down MDA might not be good for everyone.

Jiak Liao Bee, another local, said: “I think having MDA around is good. It is a good reminder that these are the people I should never aspire to become in this life.”

“If I ever did, I should commit suicide.”

Sitoh Yih Pin remains silent while police try to disperse petitioners in Potong Pasir.

By Fang Shihan

Sitoh Yih Pin has some very large shoes to fill

THE show ain’t over till the fat cat sings. It’s been 3 days since Potong Pasir was lost to PAP man Sitoh Yih Pin and still, the former opposition bastion seethes with indignation. It’s not difficult to see why this would be the case: Sitoh won by a mere 114 votes, or 50.36%.

The winner could have been either party had the 242 spoilt votes been properly cast. Or if the rumors that after including overseas voters, the winning margin was only 79 votes, were true.

Potong Pasir’s split along political loyalties – between the Chiams who’ve served the longtime residents for a good 27 years, and any PAP man who’ll dispense infrastructure upgrades like Santa Claus.

Since the ol’ fort fell, various pages have been set up on Facebook in support of Chiam, including one petition calling for a re-election (http://www.facebook.com/PotongPasirPetition). The petition has nearly 14,000 likes at this point.

Beyond a Facebook page, the organizers have also called for residents to sign a physical petition at Block 108, where Chiam’s Meet the People’s sessions used to be held. This message spread via Facebook as well as SMS.

According to one resident, Tim (not his real name), a crowd of less than 50 people were peacefully gathered outside the office around 630pm on Tuesday. The crowd consisted of residents, former residents and supporters of Chiam who had travelled down to sign the petition.

Yet when he tried looking for the petition, all he saw was a piece of paper was pasted on Chiam’s table, stating that the petition was cancelled for the day.

This was apparently because the police had been visiting the area every half hour, asking the crowd to disperse since 4pm. There was no riot van (the big red one) present but 8 white police vans and a few traffic police motorbikes were spotted.

When New Nation called one of the organisers at 815pm, she denied that the petition was seized, though the campaign was now restricted only to the residents of Potong Pasir. Non-residents were advised not to come down.

Now with the facts established, you’re probably wondering: what’s the fuss about? Elections are over so shouldn’t people move on?

Put it this way. Sitoh Yih Pin is a difficult man to like. Especially if you’ve been a longtime resident of Potong Pasir. After the results were announced, he thanked the residents for giving him a “strong mandate of more than 50%”, and subsequently went on to deride Chiam supporters by saying “for those who didn’t vote for me, please cooperate” in another speech.

No transcripts of these juicy bites can be found so you’ll have to take New Nation Man’s word for it. Because he watches a lot of local TV.

Residents who were present during the 2006 elections would also remember the street lamps that were built, and then left unrepaired when Sitoh lost the battle, leaving in a huff. Even longer-term residents would recall the NTUC supermarket that was yanked from the estate when the constituency fell to Chiam, and the bus services that were discontinued.

If you’ve been in Potong Pasir your whole life, you’d hate the PAP for their discrimination, and you’d worship Chiam for his village chief attitude towards even the most menial of things, like clearing the rubbish with the residents.

But the votes have spoken, and 50.36% of Potong Pasir has voted for Sitoh to be the next chief. The man has some huge shoes to fill, and nearly half the local population to charm over.

For a start, he’ll get some massive street cred by doing his MPS at the ramshackle void deck that Chiam has been using. Then maybe follow up by chillin’ at the hawker centre with a cold beer before overseeing the cleaning of rubbish personally. Unlike other PAP constituencies, merely kissing babies just doesn’t cut it in the former opposition stronghold. Respect must be earned.

If that’s not enough, Sitoh could also extend an olive branch by enlisting Chiam as consultant-at-large. After all, like George Yeo in Aljunied, the man has years of experience running the town and would be an invaluable resource. This could potentially save Sitoh from a lot of embarrassment as Chiam knows what flies in the town (keeping S&C charges low, keeping the kampung spirit, rustic environment and unique identity), and what doesn’t (multi-million dollar shopping centres, promenades and facelifts into facelessness).

More importantly, Sitoh must understand that wounds must be healed. He has not spoken a word since yesterday and one can only assume he’s waiting for the tide to blow over before plonking his ass in town, expecting all to be hunky dory.

The silence sir, is haunting.
