George Yeo: reform of PAP but just rhetoric
In the last General Election, the ALJUNIED GRC was hotly contested with Chee Soon Juan, PAP’s nemesis, mobbed like a film star at his rallies.
The writing was on the wall I felt then as I witnessed scenes of anger against the ruling party.
Fast forward 5 years, and a replay, but with greater intensity, of popular support for the opposition parties.
Now George Yeo talks about reforms in the PAP, and promises that the party will take a good hard look at itself.
I asked a thirty something civil servant for his reaction. He said, “Just talk only, rhetoric you know.”
I asked a twenty something gym instructor for his reaction too.
He said, “Can a leopard change its spots?”
PAP is consistent in its actions ranging from persecution of the opposition and its repressive, bullying and greedy nature.
So people will remain sceptical. As long as certain people remain in the Singapore Cabinet as the puppet masters, PAP will remain the same.
Treated like kindergarten kids for far too long, Singaporeans are not interested in words but action.
Start with political reforms, a level playing field for all political parties, and an open and free society and a free media.
AND respect for human rights.
An attempt at damage control a day before the General Election will fool no one.
