It is the PAP that is disloyal, not the four Singaporeans

The Peoples’ Action Party (PAP) has everything to gain to paint the four Singaporeans who met the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in a bad light.

Firstly, it is no secret that relations between Dr. M and the Lee family who wield all power in the island state have not always been smooth sailing.

The surprise elections across the causeway which unseated the hitherto entrenched UMNO party have caused shockwaves throughout South East Asia and of course, Singapore. Talks of Singapore also “doing a Malaysia” in its next election must have certainly caused the PAP some discomfort. Dr. M cancelling the much anticipated and high profile High Speed Rail must have also caused the PAP government a certain level of embarrassment. Besides, now that Dr M has deposed of Najib who in Lee Hsien Loong’s own words, had an excellent relationship with him – what skeletons might come out of the closet? Najib is, after all, being charged for all manner of corruption.

To distract Singaporeans from seeing any similarities between itself and its closest neighbour, the PAP government will have to discredit Dr M and make him out to be “out to get Singapore” so to speak. Yet, it cannot directly criticise Dr. M because the truth of the matter is that we need Malaysia. So what alternative is there but to attack the four Singaporeans? By making this meeting about false loyalties, it is hoped that Singaporeans will be distracted by emotive notions of loyalty. Rather than see events in Malaysia as an inspiration for change, they will be sidetracked by the alleged traitors.

Going back to basics, what does loyalty to country even mean? To my mind, it means, putting the interests of the country above self-interest. Looking at how events have panned out, the four Singaporeans have put their country ahead of themselves. By meeting Dr. M, they have gained absolutely nothing – no money, no career advancement and certainly no popularity. In fact, they have exposed themselves to the ire of the public, stoked by their very own government! While we may or may not agree with their views – the fact of the matter is that they had loyal intentions.

Now, back to the PAP government who is preaching loyalty. They have everything to gain to ensure that Dr M, Malaysia and the four Singaporeans look bad. If Dr M looks inspirational, this might encourage Singaporeans to think outside the PAP. If events in Malaysia look too exciting, Singaporeans might take courage from across the causeway and also vote for the opposition. If the 4 Singaporeans are not taken down, they may act as leaders to a cause.

But what is the government trying to protect? The PAP or the country? If it is the latter, then surely they should be happy with whoever the best person is – and the best person is the one that the public chooses. So why so eager to slam down any actions that could encourage Singaporeans to vote outside the PAP however remote? Is it to protect the party so that they can protect their own jobs, statuses and high salaries? Is that loyal?

You be the judge.

  • UniQ:

    I would suggest that if the current regime is scrapping the bottom for able men to serve, these 4 men would be a wise choice for them to consider.

    That again, other than gift politics n $$, what have the current regime to able to attract good, passionate n able ppl ? Bz the very benchmark n selection committee are all useless tax $$ suckers n bootlickers.

    That’s to say, Papies are currently n will continue to rot to the core. A culture so deeply ingrain to the core that only a split in the party could there be any hope of papies revival.

  • Malaysia boleh Singapore bodoh:

    PAP is in very deep shit. Singaporeans (being kiasu) might “do a Malaysian” just to prove they are as courageous. It is planning to use the “LKY card” again at the next GE but LKY’s reputation took a big hit after it became clear he lied to Singaporeans that the value of HDB flats would never go down. Lawrence Wong told the truth and said HDB flats will be worth zero (nothing) at the end of the 99-year lease. To make matters, worse PAP cannot use the results of the last GE in 2015 to adjust electoral boundaries. It was heavily influenced by the death of LKY. I can now see the light at the end of the PAP tunnel. Regime change is in the cards.

    Singaporeans should looked into the Taiwan Political Media n see for tgemselves what they said about Malaysians in LHL Cabinet. Who is Khaw or is it an h is sandwitched? Khaw has been tooted as a Malysian that could do anything stupid n will still remain in Parliament? Apparently there r more Malaysia in PAP politics. r also a couple of women who spew nonsense n from across the causeway. Why r Malaysian in SIN ? R they loyal to SIN or to Malaysia where they still have roots there? Why is a Malaysian sent to negotiate on tge HSR n reaches a deferment ? Why is PAP not releasing the full details of the negotiation in particular what happen to the contracts on the project? Are there any compensation to the deferment n how much r to be paid? Who foot the bill? R the revelation of such tails unfavourable to SIN PAP rating on the ground same as wasting $ n the prematured claim of credit for bringing world peace? It looks like humilating the national ststus with dead stupid self blackmailed just for the vanity of hosting a kiddy event which no nations want to host knowing what will actually be the final outcome? To show PAP is loyal to SIN, it should come clean with all these dealing? What is the role of PAP in Najib n n what happens to the plan Mahathir is demanding? Why is PAP not the citizenry? Aren’t these more relevant to the SIN public that a few sending st to unveil how Mahathir phenomenal win over b? Does pap l nations or individuals congratulating Mahathir’s win n praising his spirit n dedication even at the age of 92? Does it mean that pap has etter to do in their r the over souring ground after Mahathir success n LKY broke even his dying thraetening promise oresumin at g the tioentrs now is his own son has to flee for safety from the ssty he . The persistently echoed by go gghasthey cn in jut ttocover up pap reigners up all places in univ to provide free education to foreign students at citizens . This is real traitorous. Singaporeans should be asking PAP what r they concealing n their real agenda!

    The great 4 have really taken the tolls for the country. The time and the efforts they sacrificed are so admirable. I salute and say thank you to them.

    At such time and situation forced by the paypay, I would say it’s “ALL IN”.

    Perhaps many not aware that the Forrest city units are 99 years only and not triple 999 but somehow the develop advertise as permanent.

    One of the major shareholders of this project is actually the Sultan of JB. Shares at around near 35 %.

    So now all know why Dr M buay song PRC and probably Sultan . Probably deemed as collaboration.

    everywhere we look, every article we read, the point we get is clown pap and gang S$m liars are unwelcome in Singapore and must be voted out asap.

    here in TRE alone, the above quotes prove similar conclusion.

    WE agree with the conclusion. clown pap and gang S$m liars are toxic to the future of Singapore. if 70% sheep thinks well of the welfare of their children and grandchildren, then, they must vote against pap GE2019.

  • Why suffered in silence:

    You are dead right.They are trying to rally nationalism against the 4 activist and Dr M.By branding them as traitors they hope to discredit them and Dr M achievement so that the public would not be influenced by the PH victory.Our government has never been loyal to Sinkies,CECA sign with India allowing Indian nursing qualification from 7 institutions to be recognised in Sinkapore.These Indian nurses would compete with locals with their lower wages speak a lot about our government loyalty to her people Likewise FT policy and Immigration floodgate you call that loyalty Sinkies must discern our government hidden agenda.Dont let them perpetually belittle your intelligence.

  • opposition dude:

    The PAP doesn’t really know this yet but they have got far bigger problems to be concerned about instead of trying to make the musketeers and Mahathir look bad.

    Times have changed and we aren’t too concerned with how Mahathir sees us. We all know that PAP’s standing in the eyes of the electorate has gone down significantly. How could it not when there are 5.8 million on the island with more being let in yearly? How can it not be so when the cost of living is already too high with the 30% increase in water pricing and all other miscellaneous costs raised in this election cycle alone? Not to mention the current HDB 99 year lease issue?

    So with all these domestic issues plaguing the electorate do you think too many people would be concerned with what Mahathir says or their priority would shift to how to make ends meet daily?

  • HarderTruths:

    There is no constitution or legal framework in the world that says politicians need to be loyal to the people. None.

    They just have to do their job. Exactly what is that?
    Simple – anything they say it is.

    Just like Malay = Indian, but if you try this then you will go to jail.
    So can we stop with the loyalty bullshit as it has no meaning in politics.

  • Pgymy mentality:

    It is all in the interest of self-benefiting politics. From all angles, use whatever is expedient to further own interests. That’s politics. Their kind. If it is used cleverly there are points to gain. If people can see through the stupidity or childishness of it all, naturally you lose points. If you continue to show immaturity and taking people for granted, you will continue to lose more points and that will affect the scoresheets in later days. Their spies on the ground enjoying their walking-around money allowances should be able to update them of the general reaction.

  • Change We Must:

    By importing so many foreigners to our country, PAP is disloyal
    By providing so many jobs to foreigners, PAP is disloyal
    By giving so many scholarship to foreigners, PAP is disloyal
    By meeting an old dictator and invite dictator to talk about democracy in SEA, those who did it are disloyal
    By putting down Singapore to foreigners, those are disloyal
