Ministerial Salary Exchange in Parliament

I refer to the online reporting by Mothership arising out of the Parliamentary debate between Mr Pritam Singh and DPM Teo on the decent amount top cats are expected to be paid, along with the hidden perks.

What really surprised me was the shifting position taken by the Workers’ Party (WP) not too long ago, from being a Loyal Opposition to becoming an Institutionalised One.

I’m not sure if Pritam is aware but this position has long been occupied by the NMPs, NCMPs and PAP GPCs for quite some time already and I don’t think we need another White Elephant institution. What Singapore requires now, is a genuine Opposition with a checking bite and not another suedo one!

Singaporeans by and large, have grown pretty tired and cold to the deafening sounds of the various MPs in Parliament who remain silent in the face of crucial and fudemental issues affecting the Rule of Law and Civil Liberties.

Everything that previous governments built on will be destroyed once the Rule of Law and due processes are not followed and the ruling party and it’s agents act as if they are above the law. We can already see it happening in recent cases, ranging from the persecution of civil activists to people being denied the right to legal representation due to affordability issues. Judgements handed down in such scenarios only serves to further erode the declining moral authority of the Judiciary.

Authorities on the other hand, are also increasingly becoming more autocratic than usual and this gives rise to numerous conspiracy theories of what they have to hide and whose interest are they serving?

Hence, I hope the WP will truly wake to the pulse of the people and not become a Team B of the PAP!

  • Nonsense Workers Party:

    Fxxk Workers Party. This Pritam Singh is just another ‘wayang king’ like the PAP. Only he’s on the other side of the fence. Another opportunist. Can be easily bought like Pundocherry who also talk cxxck to the 70% dafts.

    frankly, VOICELESS sgs dont need ELOQUENT OPPO MPs to be their VOICES.
    SGS JUST NEED OPPO MPs who are on their side and not those who join PAP CON-mitteee on ‘silencing’ them but CAN HAUGHTILY IGNORE INVITES BY SDP to join in discussions on OPPO ALLIANCE?

    PRATA SING,i have lost confidence in you.

    you spoke so arrogantly to netizens about being arm-chair warriors but kowtow to PAP dogggies.

    pls prepare for your GRAND EXIT UNLESS YOU HUMNBLE YOURSELVES AND JOIN HANDS WITH OPPO ALLIANCE.

  • Calling A Deer A Horse:

    WP position themselves as “obedient” opposition, never dare to cross the OB markers set by the PAPigs. We don’t need a wayang party in parliament. I suggest other opposition parties contest in WP wards in the next election.

    Glad to KNOW there is Political Awareness among the Ladies with recent Contributions…WP was lauded by a Bastard NOW DEAD and this compliment had put the WP on an even Keel but still open to attack from the PLIANT and well trained Barking & Attack mongrels in Parliament…

    with exceptional subjects, the WP contributions are mostly muted and seldom goes beyond the “VEILED” OB MARKERS…JBJ was relentless in bringing up LEEgal corruption and Crony APPOINTMENTS without Fear but PAID a very Dearly Price…WAS JBJ’s Price for being Fearless JABS in Parliament COWED most current and future oppositions???

    Today there is an ALTERNATE source of NEWS to counter the Fake News and SHIT report @Shitty Times…so, Ladies & Gentlemen of The New Millennium put on your Armour and go into Battle and I don’t mean your NS uniform

    Well said !

    I also believe that if WP continues to “fail” and “dare not take a tougher stance”…..I will not be surprise at all to see a series of “Lone wolf” taking over the “Call of duty to serve and correct the wrongs” happening on this island.

    WP has got to take a “Bolder” step and not be afraid of being “fixed or sued” by PAP “crooks” !

    Even if WP wanted to be PAP’s B-team, but still kanan sued by the A-Team.

    WP is always in the defensive. I hope after WP is sued until the pant drop than they know they are not welcomed as a B-team.

    WP should participate in the Opposition Alliance. Even if WP is not willing to be in the alliance, at least support it and should face in Oppositions’ activities.

  • Replace WP:

    WP if disappears , a new OPPOSITION party will emerge because the critical mass exist even if wp is gone.

    WP is indeed an incompetent, impotent and unimportant lousy political party that gives shame to the word Opposition politics. JBJ has been insulted. David Marshall also has been insulted.

    A day more WP continue to exist is a day MORE of the SAME !

    WP must be DESTROYED!

    well said, bro. agree.

    we also work on the basis, as long as not pap, it must be a very good thing.

    since WP is not spelled pap, we support WP.

    we notice whenever OPPOSITION supporters gather to support WP, the number of thumbs down increases. actually, it is a good sign. it means the non OPPOSITION supporters are getting worried and are doing all they can, such as giving thumbs down.

    Why talk so much? WP just ask and get all Political incumbents annual IRAS statements.

    Is it so difficult? Are you WP also working hands-in-glove with the ruling PAP government. Prove me wrong, please.

    We seek truth with evidences. Let the people decide. Who are you, WP to agree? If you are no in cohort with PAP, the Principles arguments are smoke screen and side stepping the truth from being revealed.

    WP get your act together or die like the ruling PAP

    I’m pissed off with all you highly intellectuals, professionals and wayang Kings and queens.

    Don’t you guys (ladies) have good Human moral and righteous principles com your parents, forefathers and ancestors?. Or like one moron said, right of individual to seek own aspiration. What an intellectual woke in sheep saying.

    My fellow Singaporean, seriously consider and take the couragious step(s) to remove all incumbents for a better Singapore and future. Not for you but, more for your children, grand-children, great grand children etc..

    Nothing will go wrong for a total change.
    Remove all fear. The worst is your own illusion of fear.

    God bless

    Two similar mental retardation phenomenon among white supporters and blue supporters :

    1. White supporters never question anything about their white.
    Not even how much Lost in total by the swf.

    2. Blue supporters never questioned why the ground sentiment is polar opposite to the announced results.

    They never even realize the need to question and suspect why blue never attend protests and public political seminars.
    They never question why the blue is the only weird opposition in the world that behaves not like one.

    So many pertinent questions they never asked. So many questions with zero follow ups.

    The sg education system is a Joke. Why need so many FT if your education system can produce realworld talents?

    bro, agree. we support all OPPOSITION.

    but somehow, no matter how much Dr Chee tries, he is not connecting with the ground. maybe it is because of his funny accent?

    will Dr Chee do better if he spoke local instead of that hard to accept accent?

    we wrote before on this. we repeat here. there is nothing wrong for Dr Chee to realize he can contribute as much by being MP mentor rather than MP.

    we believe if SDP had fielded the other Dr, the medical one, instead of Dr Chee, SDP would have won that BE.

    so i am not the only one who thought that Chee’s “weird not here not there attempt to sound westernised accent” is not an asset.

    i am more distracted by this weird accent then to be listening attentively to his message. it can be cringe inducing listening to him speaks in that manner.

    i had posted here before that Chee would be surprised how much he can gel with the people on the ground if he try to speak with a normal Singaporean accent.

    I KNOW HE CAN DO IT, because when he sang that hokkien song – zit pa bun, he was doing it naturally with a sinkie accent.

    chee actually speaks with a sinkie accent like me and you….unless someone can say he also speaks to his children in that kumlanjiao accent… then all hope is gone for him in SG politics lah.

    anyone who read this and have direct link to Chee can convey this friendly suggestion to the man.

    if chee come to my kampong i will vote for him. if WP’s singh come to my kampong i will of course vote for him. this is true opposition to the pap hold on sinkies.
