Tony Tan a unifying figure? Trying to fool Singaporeans again?

Now even the Prime Minister has to weigh in with claims that Tony Tan “did not need my permission, nor did he ask for it.”

He was careful not to be seen as endorsing Tony Tan. In past elections for the Elected President post, the  government made it clear who they were backing but not now.

With the humiliating defeat no doubt still fresh in their minds, the PAP leadership knows that to openly endorse a candidate is to court hostility. 

But Singaporeans are not fooled. We can be fooled some of the time but not all the time. Tony Tan is widely believed to be the anointed one. His long association with the PAP and ties with senior PAP leaders make him the ideal candidate for what is essentially a figurehead post.

Far from being a unifying figure, a former PAP man will  invite further derision.

With only blocking powers (for which the EP can put up a show at best), and the inability to initiate anything, isn’t the EP a puppet?

A vote for any former PAP man is a vote for the PAP. It is as simple as that.

If the ruling party is genuinely concerned about unifying Singaporeans, it should address the root of the problem which lies in the repressive nature of  this government and a lack of transparency regarding our very substantial reserves.

The script says “Written and produced by PAP”, and everyone knows that.

Clearly the PAP brand is waning.


You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

    Our PAP leaders are again great at what they have all along been doing all these years.

    Certainly no remorse, apology is fake one.
