The PAP wants political parties to refrain from using children. Got it

Referring to an SDP video, the Elections Department says that “political parties should refrain from inappropriate use of young children who will not fully understand what they may be promoting or subjecting themselves to.” (ST, 6 Oct 2019)

We cannot agree more.

But finger-pointing is best done in front of the mirror. The PAP has never been shy of using young children as props for its own ends.

In our case, the young child appearing in our video is the daughter of one of our CEC members. Both she and her parents are happy with the production.

In the SDP, we have a proud tradition of involving our family members in our activities. This is because we stand for and champion values like compassion, courage and diversity, values that we feel our children are better off learning at a young age. A family that works together, stays together.

In the PAP’s case, we’d like to know if any of the children appearing in the pictures posted on its Facebook understand “what they may be promoting or subjecting themselves to”? More importantly, was parental consent obtained?

  • NotMyProblem:

    May I ask are those kindergartens and pre-schools run by the PAP count or not? The uniforms worn by the kids also have the PAP logo, or look-a-like! Is it the PAP using the children to advertise?

  • this is what We must do:

    when pap says stand, sit.

    when pap says stop, run.

    when pap says do NOT use children, jolly well use since pap always tries, tries, to stop anyone not from pap from doing the right thing. Always.

    when pap says gutter politics, sure as hell pap is talking of itself.

  • Political children:

    The children were from the proudly established political kindergarten known as Pap kindergarten?

    The children, if not then the parents are well-taught in the art of political overkill.

  • Sgreans unafford Democracy:

    Sgreans maybe too timid to have the currency to afford Democracy.

    This currency is called Courage.

    It’s ready pervasively evident all over Singapore coffeeshops that people suspect and fear being eavesdropped by the eyes and the ears of yew-know-who when they talk politics in coffeeshops.

    People fear the RC people too.

    So, it seems that Singaporeans by and large are too poor in courage to afford democracy which requires the people to be brave.

  • Dimming lights:

    We are a one narrative country – no wonder we are the most uncreative people around- there is only one narrative – the establishment narrative . The lack
    Of plurality in being thoughts leaders will sink this county further. The esrablishment feel privileged they own the narrative for the future of Singapore ; many think our lights are getting dimmer with each passing day over the lack of a moral compass of our leaders .
