Quite clever to circumvent election rules like this

Have you noticed that the Straits Times and CNA websites all carry govt ministries advertisements in the form of videos in articles like this one?

The video advertisements feature ministers like LHL and Chan Chun Sing, among others, and apparently are paid for by the respective ministries.

I wonder if these adverts will continue even after Nomination Day.

They are not PAP video adverts, so won’t count as electioneering.

Quite clever to circumvent election rules like this, but no integrity.

The PAP nowadays behave like this:

Make rules for everyone, but leaves a loophole which only it can exploit and do so legally.

Like the recent series if so-called “ministerial broadcasts”, using ministerial office as a cover, and spending taxpayers’ money to produce what were clearly PAP election speeches.

Cunning. Scheming. Not very honest. No integrity.

Such behaviour only leads to corruption.

  • Not that I have anything against Mr Goh, but I would have preferred that Nicole Seah (now with WP) go against Kate Spade Tin, if Tin is really fielded in Macpherson SMC.

    I think Nicole would stand a higher chance of beating Tin than Mr Goh and it would be fun to watch a rematch of the 2 arch-rivals.

    What say you all?

    It is not clever at all. This is another form of legal corruption.

    The PAP should be removed from office so that such incidents of using public funds for political purposes could be investigated. There are many instances of such practice. The Peoples Association is a glaring example. The PA funds the grass roots which is a PAP organsation as can be seen in the Aljunied GRC. There the WP was elected but the PAP consultative office still functions and seem to have a quasi legal function as well.

    It is one reason why PAP is not Singapore and why Singapore is not PAP. This point should be stressed home to every citizen.

  • Cowboy Town:

    In this particular cowboy town, the police chief reports to the mayor. Every few years, the mayor will appoint an outstanding police chief to a multi-million dollar salary CEO job. CEO of horse feeding. CEO of pork barrel. CEO of Parks. Whatever.

    When people file police complaints about the mayor, the policeman of course ask the police chief about what to do.

    If you are the police chief, what will you do?
    If you are the wife of the police chief, what will you do?

    Dear Andrew,

    No need to be nice or seen to be nice to the current PAP incumbents, who lacks good moral values and righteous principles. On this note, the fact that you and many others can see their dirty, unethical and cowardly approaches, you really think they are Clever or quite clever.

    Call a spade a spade. Don’t do otherwise or you are no different from them.

    Don’t be a double edge sword, it can kill you in return.


    THANK You

    Ms Tin Pei Ling, you are MP in my estate. You said each Singaporean shoukd get about $23,000 from the government.

    Uncle so far received $600 and yesterday another $600. How about the rest of $21,000 plus. When can we collect?

    Uncle wants to collect soon before the election soon.

  • I solved 3-Corner Fights:

    My solution to reduce cases of 3 corner fights.

    1. Oppos initially no wisdom or knowledge that 3 corner fights help incumbent. This is a mathematical truth.
    Despite their high calibre, we saw that the high calibre oppos helped KFC win. They learnt one wisdom after that. High calibre people do not have some wisdom. There are infinite wisdoms in this world.
    Look at the wear mask misstep and dormitory fkup. Zero Wisdom.

    2. Main point : help the stronger Oppos win. You lose never mind. The one with more chances to win should contest with pap. Whichever oppo win, join that party.
    In the subsequent GE, you can be fielded. So, strike a deal among oppos.

    I have shared with you how to be wise.
    The secret to success has been revealed by me.

    I hope I have educated you folks . Else you prove to be a daft sucker. Hopeless.

  • PAP Govt Pay for Adverts ?:

    Just look at the way they keep putting in those “Public advertisement annoucements” of the Budget spending everyday in the PAP sanctioned Daily Newspapers as if they need to remind Singaporeans EVERYDAY how much they have spent on the Covid-19 disaster.

    If PAP is a private concern like the WP, think how much they would have saved in the monies of these “advertisements” which would have put to better use or help a lot of charities. If it is the WP, I am sure they would be investigating the money trail with a fine magnifying glass to find where the source of these funds come from.

    For sure, I would like to know if the Government ever paid for these public announcement advertisements. But is it because they are under PAP, there is no need to explain the source of funds for these “advertisements” ?
