Battle for Aljunied GRC: quality of PAP ministers exposed

The battle for Aljunied GRC has attracted some nasty and childish comments from the People’s Action Party.

It warns the people of Aljunied that they have 5 years to regret and repent if they boot out the PAP-controlled Aljunied GRC. Not in the  least surprising as this is the well-known culture of threats and bullying of the current administration.

In the last General Election, they even warned that Aljunied would be turned into a slum if the GRC turned against the government.

So one-third of Singapore will be turned into slums if that proportion of Singaporean voters turns their backs on the current administration?

It was an irresponsible statement to make. Is this the quality of their ministers that PAP brags about? Is this a first world government that it pompously trumpets?

Throw your weight around in this manner in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea and you’ll be ejected from office forthwith.

It’s time Singaporeans stood up to the big bully.

Singaporeans do not deserve this sort of government with a third world mindset.

Time for a change. 

Aljunied, lead the way like the people of Hougang and Potong Pasir!!

  1. It is in a 100 years that you could nurture such a talent that topped academic examinations and performed superlatively in the private industrial market, not to say, in the international arena and against all odds in the racialistic white super-powered world.

  3. There are few scenarios that Singaporeans must understand in this GE2011:

    1. More voices but no change – To have less than 1/3 opposition seats in parliament will not change anything already done, e.g. cost of living, FTs, property prices, etc except that opposition MPs can make more noises and suggestions that PAP in majority may not listen. There is also a risk that PAP back in power will find ways to suppress all oppositions so that there will not be any chance of voting like in this GE2011.

    2. Partial change – To have more than 1/3 and less than 2/3 opposition seats will be likely to change some already done as above but will not change the Constitution that allows GRC, NMP, NCMP, and election boundary redrawing. PAP will still be in power or sharing power with oppositions. This may be harder for PAP in power to diminish the oppositions.

    3. Complete change – To have more than 2/3 opposition seats means the alternative party will be the government and PAP the opposition. This can change everything including the Constitution. However, Singaporeans must make sure the elected government rewrites the Constitution to abolish those ill clauses and introduce check and balance clause. Also, to ensure Constitution is not allowed to change without referendum. Otherwise, the next non-PAP government may have the chance to abuse the Constitution as well.

    Basically, this GE2011 is not about local town upgrading, FTs, or cost of living, etc. It is about whether Singaporeans would like to take back the political power and have a say on the future of Singapore. Once the people take back the power, they can then have a say on how to run this country and all those policies and problems will be resolved to their preference.

    Singaporeans must vote wisely on 7 May to decide what they want in the future.

  4. Very true. Very well said.
    A leopard cannot change spots.
    A spade should be exposed as one.
