PAP no longer offer a safe option

In the past, people vote for the PAP to get a team of experienced and competent leaders.

PAP does not offer this choice any more.

Instead, they offer a relatively inexperienced team. Look at the potential ministers that are being helicoptered into parliament.

The current ministers are found to be incompetent. They wasted $95 billion on the circuit breaker and did not solve the underlying problem. We still stand a high risk of a second wave of covid infection.

The $95 billion could have been used to waive GST for 8 years and reduce the cost of living for the people.

The ministers refused to consider this option, but instead spent it wastefully on the circuit breaker.

The $95 billion could have been used to give a monthly pension of $800 for those above 70, payable for their lifetime.

The ministers refused to consider this option, but instead wasted the money on the circuit breaker.

A small part of he $95 billion could be used as a wage subsidy to ensure that locals can have good paying jobs.

Does the PAP offer competent ministers? No, they did not.

Does the PAP offer leaders who can make the right judgement? No, they did not.

Do you still want to vote for PAP, when they no longer offer experienced and competent ministers?

Voters of Singapore, it is time to vote for a change. We cannot continue to give a strong and unquestioning mandate to people who have failed us.

We start by voting into parliament, people who have the a different set of ideas and more importantly, people with the passion to serve the people.

We need enough alternative voices in parliament to force the PAP govt to be transparent and to work harder and find better solutions. They cannot continue to be complacent.

Even if the PAP were to be replaced as the government, a new government can tap competent and passionate people to be advisers to help them to run the country. This will still be a better option that a PAP govt that continues to stubbornly follow failed policies.

Vote for change.

  • P.A.P. People Are Poor:

    There is no question that PAP is making people poor.

    Only some rich cronies are getting rich.

    Three items should be enough for people to know.

    1. HDB becomes $0. What happen to LKY promise?
    2. CPF guaranteed to make retirees poor. Investment returns are sucked away. $20 billion sucked away every year!
    3. Few good paying jobs.

    Young people: Even you have an ok job now. Look ahead and see what awaits you when you are old/older.

    Old people: Please know that good countries give more than $1000 free pension every month. Singapore reserve can very easily afford this. No need extra tax or GST. Don’t be happy with the few hundred dollars thrown at you.

    After decades of progress from slump in our earlier days,we never experienced what is jobless like. The progress we have made and the quality of life we are enjoying today to some who are ignorant that all this will be with us forever and many have take it for granted.
    Singaporean must acutely aware that we are heavily dependent on investments to make a living.The foundation of our survival is not as solid as what we think as I said we heavily depends on investment to make a living.
    Things can change suddenly and within years we can disappear and sink into nothingness.
    This a joke?
    We imagine if PAP just walk out of this election what we happen?
    The first thing is investors will run for the exit.Our job our livelihood will be in trouble and where are we going to find jobs? Which country?
    Next our dollar will to depreciate in value and 90 over percent of our daily necessities are imported,we will face with hyperinflation.Jobless and face with hyperinflation can we survive ?

    Until today do we have any solid alternative proposal for us to make a living from the opposition ?The number of seats they put in for this election is obviously they’re not capable of forming a government or any alternative ideas for us to make a living.
    Today,especially the young where opposition parties put in PhDs holder or lawyer or accountant look impressive.
    The million dollar question is can they make this place work?
    Any way our this system have produced thousands of Lawyers,Dr,Accountants, PhDs holders……
    Dear singaporean you might be one of the such a degree holder why not put in a try for the $16000 dollars pay. After all you don’t need to formulate rules or worries to make this place work.PAP will do the job and when they mistake faster point out the mistake and you will become the social media hero.
    Think, politics in Singapore is about our livelihood one mistake we are finished.

  • Richest Nation, Poor People:

    What an irony it will be to see more and more citizens become poorer and poorer when the country is renowned as one of the richest in the whole wide world.

    The disparity is getting out of hand due to lack of checks and balances arising from one-party
    governance which is at liberty to do what it likes without due public consultation.

  • Exploitative Governance:

    A rich nation under exploitative governance is a nation with poor GINI coefficient. So what rich is that nation to be proud of when elitism and legalised kleptocracy run in the bloodstream of the governing party or parties.

  • Scam by PAP:

    PAP is planning to fire their biggest and powerful guns on eve of Polling Day.

    Dr Chee, Dr Tan and Lim Tean will be targeted to demonize them, part of PAP’s game plan to scare voters that Singapore is doomed if these people are elected.

    Think Singaporeans. PAP will be still around to work 200% times more to serve Singaporeans. Singaporeans will see 2 MPs, both from Opposition and PAP to serve you.

    Singaporeans will suffer if they dont vote Opposition now. PAP is preparing to screw us after the election. There are already too many Foreigners who are being employed in every sector of our economy. Our children in future will become slaves to these people who will be their bosses.

    Give Dr, Dr Tan and Lim Tean your support. Deny PAP from screwing us.

    This is our last chance to save our children’s future.

    And you know this only now? Anyway, this time round I agree with you absolutely. It is a foregone conclusion that the party will form the next government, but I would like to see more oppose in Parliament as you suggested, fresh ideas, checks and balances very important and is vital.

    50 years of skeletons in closets also not healthy for the country, IMHO.

  • Murali not a "safe option":

    PAP MP Murali Pilai at Bukit Btok SMC is not a “safe option” Why? Because he has/had family problems and his son wound up in jail. If he cannot properly look after his own family he will likely not be able to properly look after the Bukit Batok residents.

    Bukit Batok voters should vote for Dr Chee Soon Juan of SP so PAP MP Murali Pillai will be defeated and can spend more time with his family.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Excerpt from Mr. Lee Hsien Yang’s;

    “……

    Standing for the opposition needs character and courage in a way that standing on the PAP ticket does not. It demonstrates a willingness to sacrifice for our country. Alternative candidates have often been victims of unfair treatment, character assassination and dissuasion from frightened family and friends. These candidates step forward to seek justice and equality for all.
    …..

    Contract this to the monochrome of the PAP candidates. For many, entering the political arena appears like a career step. They are supported by a huge machinery, have the benefits of makeovers and the prospect of a parachute into Parliament on the coat tails of a Minister.

    Do we really want Parliament to be a mere stepping stone from a senior position in the SAF or civil service or some government-related body to higher office?

    …….”

    Isn’t it well know to everyone that PAP’s candidates are in for “fame, wealth, power and impressive resume”?

    Serving the people is never in their job scope!!!!

  • OLD MAN!!!:

    @Opi very impressive

    Hello Old man. I see that you have up-ed your game a bit. Perhaps you have push your script into a word rephrasing program?? Or is the old man a team of writers now?

    I see a nice attempt on the mud throwing snipe on the OPPOs. Unfortunately, as always, they are either diversions, red herrings, accusations, fear mongering, or ironically, a self-bombardment strike (some points you made against OPPOs applied much more accurately on the incumbent, so I am not sure if you are aware of it).

    Again, I have already told you to write up a piece on why PAP is good, and defend it properly, not in this wishy-washy manner. You not doing it only reinforce what they are representing now: no prowess to stand the test of scrutiny and rationality.

  • Should I Vote For The PAP ?`:

    Perhaps. I was a 45 years old IT Executive and was replaced by CECA Indian from India. Ever since from that day I was not able to get another job and sadly end up as a Grab Driver. I have to drive 12 hours per day and earn a miserable salary. PAP LOOKING AFTER OUR JOB AS PROMISED BY THEM FOR THIS COMING GENERAL ELECTION ?

    My son after finishing his Diploma at the Polytechnic now has problem to go into the local University due to a large number for foreigners in the University. Looks like I have to spend money to send him to an overseas University. IS PAP REALLY LOOKING AFTER THE WELFARE OF SINGAPOREANS ?

    So Should I vote for them this coming election ? Yes if I want all my future generation to be be screwed by the PAP.

    A strong mandate was given to PAP at GE2015 & Covid-19 crisis has shown us beyond a shadow of doubt the weak PAP-touted political system that favours PAP’s sycophants & distaste for loving critics & alternative voices in Parliament has brought us this tragic state of mishandling of Covid-19 pandemic & bleeding of taxpayers’ money (about $100b) to “fight fire” up till now due to group complacency without strong checks & balances from multi-party opposition voices!

    TO BETTER PREPARE FOR THE NEXT WAVE OF CRISIS GIVEN THIS PANDEMIC GE THE POLITICAL SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE OVERHAULED & THIS COVID CRISIS IS GOD-GIVEN OPPORTUNITY TO VOTE IN MORE ALTERNATIVE PARTIES TO SAVE SG!

    A STRONG MANDATE IS NOT GOOD FOR SG GOING FORWARD!

  • Politics Of Fear:

    Pinky appeared ON TV today and asked the voters to vote for the PAP.

    He said that his team of two Senior Ministers and the 4G leaders will lead us out of the pandermics and into the future. Sound Very Reassuring.

    His Ministers will speak up for us in Parliament. So far where got ?

    He told us that whatever the PAP promised, they have delivered. YES they promised CECA Agreement and delivered hundred of thousand of Indians PMET into Singapore to take our local PMETS jobs away and forced these local to drive GRAB or Deliver Food for a living. Definitely make our lives better.

    If the PAP lost 4 GRC and two SMC, the investors will run away because there is a weakened Government. Good Try using this Fear tactics but it will not work again.

    We do not trust you anymore. Once bitten twice shy. Good Riddance .
