On Alex Tan’s take on the AHTC Trial

I read Alex Tan’s take [ LINK ] on the ongoing AHTC trial and felt compelled to voice out against his misguided post that seeks to divide people’s attention to the crucial issue at hand: Singapore may wake up tomorrow to the prospect of a total dictatorship when we lose our sole Opposition representation in Parliament!

STR’s editorial on where and how to draw the line when it comes to dealing with the regime also appears to be erroneous. The 33 million that the lawsuit seeks to recover from the 3 WP MPs are due back to the Town Council’s funds and not to the PAP as alleged.

It further suggests to let the WP MPs go bankrupt as it would be “better” for Aljunied to revert into PAP hands so Singaporeans from other Constituencies can vote to change the government.

This is typical behavior of a keyboard warrior and someone so far away for that matter, who is so detached from ordinary Singaporeans to really understand what is going on in the ground. Ironically, this is the same person who accused other Opposition leaders of being opportunists who do not toil the ground.

Although I do have a very low opinion of the PPP, DPP, NSP and RP, they are at the very least, still based in Singapore instead of seeking refuge from a faraway location while wanting to influence local politics. They are here to stay and help in the struggle against political oppression and structural injustices of an unaccountable judicial system.

Are the WP MPs worth saving? Our every cent! I just hope they will emerge stronger after this ordeal and better appreciate the sacrifices that civil activists like PJ Thum, Jolovan Wham amd Sealan Pillay went through just to bring greater awareness of societal injustices.

  • Malaysia boleh Singapore bodoh:

    Hopefully, this bankrupts WP so it would cease to exist as an opposition party. WP is afraid of PAP which makes them useless in Parliament. WP is only prepared to be “co-driver” with PAP. What a stupid idea. If WP is not prepared to leads then it should not exist. It is that simple.

  • LIONS:

    where were these ppl when the oppo tried to organise an oppo ALLIANCE?

    I am for a STRONG OPPO BUT WITHOUT TRUE UNITY,it is going to be tough as WP’s precarious situation as shown.

    i voted for oppo cause at AJ and i think OPPO MPs should always be ON-GUARD against any antics from WHITE MONKEY$ all the time.

    the fact that WP falls for the ‘TRAP’ is disappointing.

    in any case,as sgs, we do what we can for a better tomorrow.
    and pritam,pls be more humble and stay away from ANTI-NETIZENS’ CONmittee organised by PAP????

  • We vote Oppo:

    3 down, 30 Up + Lim Tean as PM = more free business opportunity and good life for all.

    We hold the tickets.
    Threaten the People, We vote Oppo.

    But my bet is the 3 heros will be OK.
    PAPi won’t be so stupid as to set the yardstick of death upon themselves. But certainly, they will use the basketball court and MSMs to vitiate and humiliate the WP .
    The more the donation coming, the more the peaceful outcome will be.

    I see it another way. The more the donations come, the more scared is PAP. It is an accurate yardstick to size up the mass. Najib had underestimated the mess, and he is in big trouble now.

    But I agreed with you nothing will come to the 3 WP MPs. PAP is not that stupid to bankrupt them cause they know the people are already very angry. They will use this court case to bad-mouth them in the next GE, hoping the brainless 70% Sinkies will buy their story and keep voting them and win back Aljunied GRC. By doing so, they will claim to be clean, above board and absolute mandate. Then, no one can blame them for fixing to get rid of WP.

    But Singaporeans already knew the fixing started immediately after WP won Aljunied GRC. Pinky is the most smiling tiger hidden dagger type. Watch out for this devil.

  • LHL does PAP in:

    Many seniors r betting on how long LHL going to bury PAP with its founding nepoti who has ruin Singapore political stability by his relentless persecution of opposition esp theadmirable persistence of Lawyer JB Jeyaratnam who wasted his weatlyh n his comfortable bungalow in a prestgious district just to defend his ideal to help Singapore establishing a truly democracy against the greed of LKY personal agenda of aLee Nepotic regime helped mysteriously by GCT succumbing to seat warm for LHL thus complete LKY devious n self centred ambition despite of GCT early rebellious against Lee public announcement that GCT was not his ideal chioce to succeed his position attempt by seeking citizen endorsement thru a National Referndum which he got
    But for reasons only GCT n LKY know why he finally kowtou to LKY n willingly vacate the PM to LHL. There were noises coming from GCT close mates the integrity have stopped them from public revelation thoigh most knowing GCT found hos betrayal of citizens trust dispicable n even more despicable is he has facilitated nepotism and dictatorial completely destroying the portance of putting a true democray in place. The not too long ago push over by the nepotic successor deemed by many as not deserving. GCT is a disgrace n deserving being nickef as rotten idiot but this has brought gross injustce to msny of his classmates most very honourable n dedicated professionals. Many hope that the fart degeneratoon of pap n the public derogation of the citizenry forgetting that their instant multimillions r self gratification abusing the absoute power entrusted by the electorate to serve in the interest n benefits of the nation n not for themselves n the party. They should seek the citizens approval by National Reference for every ion for themselves or the party. The nurture og polanpa culture is really a nation destructive action that should never have happen. This corrupts the ontegrity of many professional n the results r apparent with the many failure in the system including right of soeech, expression n assembly.
    Singaporeans r waking up to such evils n more n more r clamouring their rights to dissent, the right to demand for transparency n the right of eradication of the first evil polanpaism which invariably affect the independence of the public institutions. the last barrier of preventing abuses of the absolute power to offset the political th that absolute power corrupts ely.Many felt disappointed n pathetic that JB spirit died with him with Kenneth holdong a flickering dying flame while Philip has succumbed to the power there be. As the ground has grwn sour, it gave GCT a chance to regain what he has lost thru unforgiveable beyrayal for whatever reason.

    No worries lah !

    I see more people “supporting WP and any other Oppositions” after this AHTC case because that stupid Pinky thought this court case will “finish” WP…..instead, I see this court case helping in “building up strength and guts” to the people to “go against” PAP in this coming GE.

    Yup, Pinky seems to have “taken a wrong bet” !

    Scrabbling to prevent more loss of votes to the Opposition!

    AHTC trial backfires!

    The more donations (support for WP) will be a signature that all is not well for next GE.

    The Party may decide to get rid of ‘Najib’ before it is too late to salvage the situation.

    Since the GRC win by WP, they are continually fixing the oppos without abatement. They want back the one-party rule. I fear more unfavourable election rules and changes may surface in the upcoming GE.

    As of 10pm on 26 October there are 5241 people who have donated $907918. Some people with really deep pockets there. 5241 people is a tiny drop when compared to the 3 million citizens but I’m amazed at how fast the donations have gotten to almost $1 million.

    I think even if WP MPs could not stand in the next GE that they would not have any issues retaining Aljunied with another team. For all the negativity surrounding WP heaped upon by PAP we know that PAP have done things a lot worse.

    @ Opposition dude

    PAPpys HAVE COMPLETELY MISREAD THE PATRIOTISM on the ground and the true extent of public anger and disillusionment of PAPpys own monumental incompetence and failures over a decade.

    The craving craze for money for themselves has no parallel anywhere on earth and that stares at a staggering record of no achievements of performance, notwithstanding. This country is sinking fast and peasants know it, feeling desperately helpless, totally lost in zombieland living in fear of tomorrow for many.

    If we don’t change direction soon, WE ARE HEADING FOR SUDDEN DEATH COLLAPSE EXTINCTION – economically.

    I dont think it’s that simple. If they can fix the PE in favour for an Indian to become a Malay President, just to disqualify TCB, they must be very desperate to hide something from the people.

    The Old Hack used Ops Coldstore. What else can this chap used?

    Worst case scenario. Cunny dictator like him can get ‘someones’ inside to create ‘religion or security’ troubles to give them good reason to impose Marshal Law. It may happen. This D1 is very cunny & he is never a gentlman type. Be prepared for the worse to come.

  • Greedy hungry n ruthless:

    LHL, instead of tending his stupidity in mocking security, anti national n greed soaked policy like an honorable human being, choose to propagate greed n aggressiveness in the citizens so that they r better prepared to become efficien THIEVS to steal the job from his lies of FTs. Thieves in their own nation. He compunded his gutless n nfi of nation building by advocating that Singapore youth should not aim to get a univ degree as they can become multimillionaires and succeed in life instead of like honorable human being with guts to confess that due to the stupidity they have not only wasted billions of Singaporeans $ to provide free education from primary to postgraduate studies plus a fat allowance sufficient for the foreign students to remit to their family at home or to indulge in share trading. The number of foreign students of all ages create no more places in schools n universities to accomodate Singaporeans leading to a VTO those Biws loud call. Aggravated by the fast sweep of anti bad anti national political party across the world with the recent effect on the immediate neighbour with the 92 yo Mahathir who set the examples of how to restore national pride by exposing what were done by the “all the way thought to be indispensable party to look after the nation & without which the nation will break apart” which were really exploiting the nation wealth to be their own n how they were shield from public by the polanpas all the way alomg the bureaucrat laddle, pap was thrown into disarray with a fraction throwing out carrots to “sooth” the rage growing among the citizens n the other fraction headed by the presumptious berraChan xisunk that he will take over the nepotic regime from the son of his driver bringing him from TPGrc into Parliamt n that his wolf will drive off the gorilla from all the lobangs going around with great arrogance to show his wealth by depraving both vendors n consumers in wet market food centres that they r dirty, stinko n food not worth the price compared to his $10 chaitowkwei in clean n comfy environment with service, n threatening SIN Pmets that he has no problem to import foreign .pmets to replace them presumably even policians if his power is not acceptable by Le plps. Indiani of the same grc shows her legal flare by her criteria that success in career determine conflict of interests not the out dated relatinship craps.
    Do Le daft Sinkies really want to vote in a political party working against them by taking away jobs n education opprtunities to give to the greedy, hungry n brutish foreigners, insults n threatens them as they desire? Even LHY n famili have to run like hell like Amos, Francis Seow, David Nair, TLH n family. Voting PAP vote no HDB, no Job, no uni degree. PAP nothing but self gratification,…

  • erdcvfthu:

    I would suggest whenever there is civil case that related to the politicians/politics, this type of lawsuit must be brought and handle by international court/UN or simply have by-election to let the citizens to decide whether the offenders are being wrong or not. If not, it will be unfair to the defendants where the home country court and gov will side each other. The previous PAP aljunied must be present at the court hearings too.

    Singaporeans are really stupid, wasting their money and time. Voted for the wrong gov who took advantage and abusing them. Then wasting money onto the oppositions to fight for them for a battle that they can never win, calling fouls and continuously voting for the wrong gov again and again. Why they just can’t use this brain to understand this logic, be brave and change things? Is all their wrong support and the bad gov that they voted for causing all the problems.

    All Human and Dynasty including Empires has its Faults & Shortcomings…This episode will be a wake-up call for Worker’s Party and it’s stalwarts that though Singaporeans support a worthy opposition the WP should NOT take for granted the support is there in perpetuity…if it is at FAULT admit it…if it is Shortcoming rectify it AND ensure if possible that any seat won should be work upon 3x harder than a PAP seat with its almost unlimited war chest and pliant mongrels at their feet…

    For beginners…the MP allowance should suffice any Opposition parties who are willing to SERVE and NOT self-serve… SUPPORTERS will donate if seen in the RIGHT LIGHT their hard work DAILY not only weekends and when GE or BE is around the corner…

    Unless & Until oppositions gain control…it is a FULLTIME JOB to serve and have no other interest unlike PAP MPs and even Ministers having interest elsewhere besides their Reason in Parliament i.e “To Serve the PEOPLE”

Please tell us where is the portion of money Aljunied residents contributed to build the software? Why sell to a $2 company?

    They know that they will not win back AJ in a by-election. You all are aware that Mr Lim Tean has registered a Party name People Voice.

    They will stand for the by-election and for sure PV will win and we are sure that Mr Lim will bring up many questions and will such will Blacken the White monkeys. If such happen the coming GE the White will be down completely.
