SDP Renews Commitment to Bring Positive Change to Singapore

In this New Year, the Singapore Democrats renew our commitment and redouble our efforts to bring about positive change for our nation and our people.

2018 will remembered as a year of price increases and economic lethargy, coupled by a government not providing fresh and enlightened leadership to tackling the unprecedented problems that lay ahead.

The only thing it seems certain of is to continue to harass its citizens by prosecuting and suing them for their dissenting views, introducing legislation to further curtail open debate and cracking down on alternative news sites.

Looking ahead, Singaporeans can expect tougher times if nothing changes. Millennials face a distinct lack of opportunity as finding meaningful employment becomes harder, housing prices remain unaffordable and the “graduate poor” increase in number.

Middle-aged Singaporeans don’t have it better. As the effect of price increases kick-in and the increase in GST looms, families will come under even greater financial stress. Having not only their children to bring up but also ageing parents to care for, working adults will struggle like they’ve never struggled before.

Add to the mix the PAP’s intent to bring in yet more foreigners to compete on the jobs front even as retrenchments threaten Singaporeans’ livelihoods, 2019 will bring little cheer.

Likewise, the older segment of the population will have little to look forward to as they see their dreams of selling their once-prized HDB nest-eggs to fund their retirement go up in smoke. The PAP has finally admitted that flats will decrease in value as they reach the end of their 99-year lease.

To pile on the misery, the PAP continues to retain the little that we have in our CPF savings under the Minimum Sum Scheme, making retirement an impossibility and economic security a pipe-dream for many older Singaporeans.

All this is happening while the ministers insist on lavishing themselves with astronomical salaries and living charmed lives. Such self-interested political leadership spells troubled times for our country

But the situation is not immutable. With effort, we can turn things around. To this end, the SDP has crafted an alternative vision for Singapore and, from this, drawn up a set of alternative policies to take the country up a brighter, happier, and more equal future.

2019 promises to be an eventful year with the SDP kicking things up a notch as we embark on a series of activities leading up to the next general elections expected to be held later this year. We will announce our plans in the coming weeks.

We invite Singaporeans to be part of this effort to usher in change for a better Singapore and let’s make 2019 a truly happy and meaningful New Year!

  • Dr. Chan:

    Yes. We want SDP to win big. We want the opposition coalition to win. A new Government with Dr. TCB as PM. And a new Cabinet ministers to include Lim Tean, Dr. CSJ, Sylvia. Remove useless Milo fake Malay puppet. And hold a real Presidential election to let the best person win. Then we will know the status of the reserve – probably zero by now.

  • Dr. Chan:

    To add to that. Bring back all political dissidents. e.g. Tan Liang Hong etc. Reopen their cases. Sack all PAP connected judges, AG. Let the Courts be independent. So that unjust rulings against dissidents be overturned. And return all their assets/fines paid to the corrupt PAP government ministers. I know this is a tall order. But it is the right thing to do after they suffered so much under the evil PAP regime under Lee Con You.

  • LIONS:

    it is time to put ALL THE MSM-DRIVEN FAKE NEWS that mar the good image of SDP over the years to rest in 2019!

    SDP has in its fold many good sgs waiting to serve other sgs especially the VOICELESS.
    ppl LIKE dr chee n paul n ang ky are good guys.
    they could have spend all their precious time for the ir own families but no,they spend their time n resources to try and help lesser sgs who have been mostly blinded by MSM FAKE NEWS all these years.

    we must touch our hearts and ask ourselves WHAT BAD HAS SDP OR ITS MEMBERS DONE TO COMMON SGS?
    NONE !

    WHAT BAD HAS PAP rich ministers n members,including rich grasslooters done against sgs?

    countle$$!

    so,what are sgs waiting for?
    what is there to stop sgs from trying out a BRAND NEW TEAM who has not done anything untoward towrards them or their families?

    look at dr chee n his wife,both PHDs.
    tHEY COULD HAVE SELFISHLY MAKE GOOD LIVING FOR THEMSELVES,if not in SIN CITY,at least in other REAL FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES!

    SO,WAKE UP TIME,SGS AND STAND TALL AND BE COUNTED.

    VOTE WISELY,NOT blindLEE.

  • Bobo:

    Singaporeans will be brave enough to vote PAP again in next GE. No money, CPF money locked up, jobs lost or stagnant pay, no speaking rights, high cost of living, MRT constant breakdowns are all not major issues at all. They are willing to surrender to PAP in exchange for chicken bones. Oppositions can talk until jaws dropped and tired, but idiots could just ignore the facts. Although we face facts, but wish CSJ and SDP will win even by 0.1% will be great result.

  • Ali Baba:

    Every right minded citizens must help to vote for a sizable number of SDP candidates into parliament in the next GE. We must trust SDP can have the guts and determination to stop the rogue regime from their bullies and their totalitarian control. Stop the rogues from further their suka suka ruling and only serve their own interests.

  • SDP Beware:

    Yes SDP, you better apply for ‘copy rights’ on your GE manifesto.
    PAP had already stolen some of your ideas before and implemented them as their own ideas.
    They have No shame at all!
    Never gave your party any credit whatsoever.
    So now you all know what pAPs are. ..VTO

  • Boh Kia See:

    At this point in our development, committing to Singapore is to ensure the demise of the PAP. There is no other way.

    The PAP bulldozer will run roughshod over the peoples’ welfare all the time thinking they are doing the right thing because their bank accounts are bursting at the seams.

    SDP should be given a chance at Government because they have policies that citizens can assess as to its practicality for Singaporeans. All the other parties do not seem to produce any concrete ideas or alternative.

    So in essence Singaporeans has to assess SDP’s policies against the failed and failing actions of the PAP. While PAP may copy some of SDP’s ideas, they will not accept those ideas that will harm the PAP’s own pockets. But for the benefit of the whole state, we have to adopt policies as a whole as there will be interactions between policies in one area affecting other areas.

    All the policies that PAP have were all formulated by the likes of GKS and Raja, since then it was a matter of rejigging those policies. No new direction or strategies were formulated by these $m “leaders”.

    So the choice is a stark one for Singaporeans–be ruled by the Lee dynasty and the dogma-driven PAP or be democratic with a say in your future. There is no other way.

    Citizens should wake up and vote wisely when the time comes and be aware of the various ways that elections can be rigged.

  • External forces boleh:

    Singaporeans are all controlled by FEAR.
    It’s not possible, SDP.

    You always talk and No Action.

    Opposition never solve the problem of why they never win.

    You are dealing with Singaporeans.
    Many are elderlies.
    They base on trust and their brains are hardwired and washed.
