Are we, arguably, so afraid of losing power, that we forget what is undemocratic, unfair, unjust, etc?

I refer to Singapore’s Electoral Freedom ranking of 173rd in the world.

Dear Singaporeans,

Are you not appalled and ashamed by a Government which has laws, contracts, systems, etc, that results in

… the termination of the Town Council Management Software (TCMS), by giving one month’s notice, when a different party wins the elections

… the transfer of 100% of the Operating Surplus balance to the Sinking Fund, when a different party wins the elections, under Section 33 of the Town Council Act.

… the Managing Agent not continuing its services and contract, when a different party wins the elections

… the transfer of certain facilities to the People’s Association (PA), when a different party wins the elections

So, is it any wonder that our Electoral Freedom ranking is at 173rd?

Are Singaporeans who vote for the opposition arguably, literally treated as fodder, in the quest, apparently, to remain in power, no matter how undemocratic, unconstitutional, unfair, unjust, unethical, immoral, etc, it may be?

Aren’t the above ‘fair comment in the public interest’?

What do you think?

Uniquely Singapore!

    And I confirmed again and again what I had said – the extremely narrow-minded, immatured, ungentleman and toxic PAP under the No. 1 Dishonorable Son will not hand over power peacefully. Files can disappear over night. Key witnesses will run road. 6 months stabbatical leave with pay is not a problem. Just watch.

    They have used our taxpayers’ money to buy over many kakilangs for too long. Sinkies are stupid allowing them to do this.

    On this, Najib is more gentleman than him.

  • clown pap runs road GE2019:

    as soon as New Government forms, all the illegal legislated as legal can be overturned via proper constitution change.

    so all the current bad things, and fake news, and lies, by clown pap is not a major issue.

    rather New Government must legislate harsh punishment, via constitution change, in pursuing S$m back from clown pap members, back from today’s group all the way to the founding group.

    this is to ensure no single famileee in Singapore can hoard free hold land as if the small island is their personal play ground.

    and it can be done. because 70% sheep is beginning to feel their own silliness in voting into power a group of ownself declare ownself folks.

    as clown pap has abused power by suka suka constitution change to make the illegal into legal via a pliant parleement, New Government can do the same, and much more, via a proper group of parliamentarians in parliament.

    parleement that we now see becomes, finally, parliament.

    If a new govt gets voted in, the removal of the
    town council’s computer system in Aljunied will
    appear very minor, compared to what is likely to
    happen. Expect much Much more to be taken away,
    such as all kinds of info and systems. Cooperation,
    of cos, will vanish. As is, the army is already
    being put into place, blockades are on standby,
    in case of a loss. The phrase “total chaos” to
    describe the sitn will be a gross understatement.

    Agreed. Just like when Soharto went down who you think was the one who started the racial killings & rapings of Chinese girls in broad daylight? The millitary, under his son. If he can slap a senior in office, this beast is no difference. Si2nkies never remember history, read character, body language & personality. Easily bought over by sweet talks. STUPID!

    Sorry LSH

    You should know 70% $G locals never give a shit about what you write. As long as nothing happens to them they will continue to ignore you.

  • KPMGq:

    Look at KPMG itself. Gov has awarded HUNDREDS of MILLIONS to KPMG.
    Yet Corruption and Problems still EXIST in Public and Private sector.
    Look at CHC, AMKTC, Holland GRC TC, Mindef and all other Ministries.
    So Badly manage that we have to SETUP AGO to Audit all Ministries.
    Apparently paying these TOP COMPANIES in the WORLD does NOT SOLVE
    problems. Instead we are paying for services that are GETTING WORST.

    Opposition leaders, we NEED TO QUESTION Malpractices NOT allowing PAP
    to keep bragging HOW GREAT THEY ARE.!!

    In other countries civil services and politics is separated. Here in Singapore it is all under PAP.
