The voters have spoken, but will the PAP get it?

The People’s Action Party won without winning a strong mandate. The PAP won but the voters sent some clear messages.

Don’t take us for granted – having dropped the ball on COVID-19, they still went ahead with a pandemic election smelling a landslide victory.

Don’t go down the gutter – whipping up and making a meal of Raeesah Khan’s past social media posts during the height of campaigning; that candidate and her team still won!

Don’t turn falsehoods into a weapon – it started with Dr Chee Soon Juan being accused of “falsehoods” over the 10 million population target, and POFMA then got into the act, instructing correction orders multiple times.

Don’t resort to fear mongering – as with every GE, Singaporeans were told they could find the PAP losing power overnight, and even if the PAP wins, they have to win big otherwise investors would lose confidence.

Don’t mock the opposition and taunt the voters – PM Lee Hsien Loong told Sengkang voters “Why settle for PAP-lite? The real thing is much better.” Turns out the voters do not want the real thing – just like many of us prefer Coke light because it’s healthier, Sengkang voters prefer the healthier, harder working Workers’ Party!

Don’t keep touting the wonders of having 12 NCMPs – Singaporeans are not stupid, where this is concerned, we prefer the real thing!

Don’t ignore the Ang Mo Kio numbers – PM Lee and his team won 71.91% of the votes, down from 78.64% in 2015, against one of the weakest performing parties. Most tellingly, it had the most rejected votes (over 5,000) among all the GRCs; what are the voters telling the Prime Minister?

Don’t brush aside the people’s fears, anxieties and concerns – 10 million population or not, there are real worries about foreign influx and competition for jobs, there are real concerns about many bread and butter issues and a PAP losing its way.

So the PAP won, but Singaporeans did send all these messages to them.

Losing one more GRC has got to hit the PAP in the guts. It could have been so much better though – imagine if the rest of Singapore had the guts of voters in Hougang, Aljunied and Sengkang.

But at least we have got 10 elected opposition MPs and 2 NCMPs in Parliament – and NOT the wipeout many feared and the 12 opposition NCMPs the PAP kept touting.

    Look like we have the best outcome..
    A mandate for PAP with less vote..
    PAP need to do better for the people and WP also need to earn the trust its supporter has given to it.
    WP need to do a better job to champion the people problem and help solve the people problem…many are cash poor to cope with the high cost of living…
    WP need to work also…to better the life of ordinary Citizen.

    It’s a tight slap on lhl.
    But lhl likely will pass the blame to Heng.

    There’ll likely be infighting among those aspire to be PM.
    Heng may be in precocious position now that the election under his charge underperformed.

    How PAP respond will depend on which side won the infighting ie hardliner or Heng’s gang.

    I’m not convinced PAP is telling the truth about the 10m population issue.
    In fact, I don’t believe the figures given out by PAP.
    The immigration intake can be increase without Singaporeans knowing.

  • Harder Truths:

    In a Communist ideology there is no ‘you’ or ‘them’ – just ‘them’. They will continue what they are doing and take this as a sing of having given the people too much leeway.

    Consequently they will tighten the system further to make sure we cannot say, do, see or even think about ‘taboo’ subjects in order to ‘protect’ us from ourselves – because – you see Augustine – they know best. Since they are in power they are the ‘bestest’ with Heaven’s Mandate.

    No matter how you look at it is is 83 -10. A clear supermajority. Does not matter if there are people who say ‘but’ or ‘if’ or ‘maybe’ – communists must win or they lose all relevance in their being superior to the rest of us.

    The next 5 years will be – for them – how to practically transition to a police state fully while bringing in hordes of foreigners to boost the economy in the short term. They have no choice – they have to do this or their Ponzi scheme collapses. You and I mean less to them than used toilet paper.

    If people want change, the majority must get over their retarded belief that we $G citizens live in a ‘democratic’ system of ‘justice’ and ‘equality’ and see the rotten cesspool of corruption that milks us dry on a daily basis.

    There is no country in this world so controlled as is $G. The end result of such a society will be a complete migrant takeover and/or collapse – which you will not see coming until it happens.

    Your life will be ruled by Social Credit Scores, Electronic currency that tracks what you spend and possibly implants to keep track of you for your own ‘protection. That part is easy to see. It is already happening and it will get worse until there will be no GE worth voting in.

    Let us here not delude ourselves – there is no way the ballsless are going to change. So be prepared for a very real ‘lockdown’ of your ability to do even basic things without their permission.

    The vast majority of people voting have not seen the early years of the despot’s rule or have made any effort to study it. Those who have can see what’s coming. Everything can change literally overnight – there is no guarantee the office job you had today cannot be outsourced to someone in Chennai. Or the production job you worked in replaced by machines from Shenzhen. Even Macdonalds are going people-less. The future is going to be entirely people-less and if you cannot compete with the lowest calibre FT you will be practically a beggar or a Desker Road graduate – although with sex dolls that may also be a past occupation.

    The future for $G citizens looks very very bleak – but the majority wanted it. So there it is finally – democracy for you.

  • opposition dude:

    Very well said Augustine Low, brief and to the point.

    Basically, don’t F around us voters because the old days of fear mongering and mudslinging are long gone. But don’t tell PAP about this since they love to do it election after election and then lose GRC after GRC!

    This election all they did was talk about jobs jobs and more jobs throughout the 9 days. Unfortunately voters got real tired of it real quick because it was just on repeat day after day with nothing much concrete. And since we don’t believe that PAP won’t stop letting in more aliens then hey, might as well make them lose another GRC AND 2 other GRCs in the low 50% range too.

    The useless PM gambled wrongly. He kept talking about a strong mandate with silly reasons which smart voters could see through. His smokescreen failed him this time and he lost 4 monkeys and a 9% reduced vote share. Shows you he is clueless AND opportunistic really.

    We will still suffer for another election cycle so say hello to GST @ 9% being brought forward and another 4 consecutive years of transport fare hikes. That $2.5 billion renewal of the NSEW isn’t going to pay for itself you know. Same for the $90 billion drawn from the reserves, they are going to want it all back and more.

    As for the NCMP nonsense it’s another bit of comedy from PAP. The party has sunk so low that it’s willing to just say something, anything to convince voters instead of using reason and common sense. Oh well.

    I don’t think PAP are in too much shock this time to be honest, they know they aren’t that good and expected to lose a GRC or 2. So I wait to see if any ministers get demoted to MPs or if there will be another round of pay cuts. I foresee none of it happening but will be happy to be proved wrong.

    You expect change? I dont think so, they will stick to the same plan:

    1.Double up to import/convert foreigners, we will expect the population will go up very fast next 4 years.

    2. Pro FT/elite policies will stay

    3. Take back 10 chickens

    4. More fixing and repressive laws to suppress unhappiness

    So you will not see a refreshed PAPPY, it will run as before with the old school Emperor and Empress Dowager guiding the eunuchs (ministers and MPs) and talking down peasants.

    Now PAP is in a crisis mode. Future PM in poor standing, CCS unfit to be the next PM and the next in-line Minister Ong is at back stage, Tharman is the only man qualified to be the next PM. But PL Lee already killed him earlier by saying Singaporeans not ready for an Indian PM.

    POLITICAL GROOMING is all too often fraud with failure – Mahathir groomed Anwar Ibrahim, then Abdullah Badawi; Bob Hawke groomed Paul Keating who finally butt kicked him out of the caucus in a party-room spill, Margaret Thatcher groomed John Major, John Howard groomed Peter Costello (who quit empty-handed).

    The reason is very simple – according to pyschologists – WE CHOOSE THE PEOPLE WE LIKE AND WHO DO WE LIKE? Those who look like ourselves.

    Witness this phenomena – when you see couples on the street walking together with kids, they tend to look like each other than facial appearances far apart.

    IF POLITICAL GROOMING EVER WORKS, nobody can tell me these – how long that grooming is to make it work – 2 years, 10 years or 30 years of hand-holding before letting “protege” go solo to see if he/she fails or succeed.

    If you need 20 years of grooming, IT IS PROBABLY A FAILED CASE INEVITABLE because the “protege” probably needs a life time of hand holding and still would not succeed – if EVER.

    PAPpypolitics is like this – they think it is like a heart-transplant operation that will magically works BUT REALITY IS OPPOSITE – THE BODY (voters) REJECT THE WORN OUT DECAYING HEART TRANSPLANTED (groomed) outside the natural host.

    In terms of economic front, 2G was a dismal failure and 3G “did better” of having maxed out growth. 4G now grasping a sunken economy hit by a wrecking ball.

    Instead of GRC sheltered bunker protection, they should let them go out and fight to test if they survive or left dead in SMC contest. If they are dead corpse, it is useless trying to wake them up from “permanent sleep.” Let the maggots take care of the rotting carcass and allow the fittest to lead the nation forward.

    I stay in SengKang for almost 15 years when they develop the town. Sengkang and Punggol are considered as the ” a far-away” town in North Eastern of the islanf.

    All the while, residents in SengKang and Punggol are paying and having the most expensive hawker food in Singapore and lack of childcare centre for the residents, esp those young families and old folks.

    I think the PAP members doesn’t know the real problems the residents are facing and thought that Sengkang is PAP playground.

    Luckily for these residents, WP came and appears in Sengkang and have their members to walk about with residents and build up the good relationship with.

    PAP members are not often to be seen in the area.

    Before, the election on 10 July, I can predicted that WP will win and PAP will have to pack and leave. Only then, when the result was announced, it confirmed my real hope and to me now, SengKang will be forever be WP homegroung.

    ON APPROPRIATE POLICY CHOICE OF ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION SO BADLY AND URGENTLY NEEDED, PAPpys hard core supporters like yourself must, in my judgment a fast shrinking melting ice-cream ball.

    Voters can see through the empty rhetoric of PAPpy’s manifesto

    - your life (the unspoken and unspeakable is in a mess)

    - your job (more retrenchment after the election)

    - your future (post election, Present Tense’s confession alluding to great pain and uncertainty)

    VOTERS’ MESSAGE TO PAPpypolitic is right on the dot -LEE-jiapore is in DEEP TROUBLE.

    PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics Population Recycling Economics failed badly – Covid-19 proved the mess of disintegration pieces tossed about in the whirlwind of a cyclone swept by and could come again.

    4G watching a horror movie spellbound – crisis managed MOM and voters are angry – the ill-advised frequent resort to use of POFMA pimp to conceal the truth of 10 million population target (including denial of 6.9m by 2030 ; Hyflux knew of 8 million target a decade ago) to silence critics just add more fuel to fire.

    Japanese and Arab proverbs have this advice – NO POINT CLENCHING YOUR BUTT AFTER THE FART HAS FLOWN.

    IF PAPpypolitics don’t dismantle GRC bunker protection (and trap as well of no escape) under attack and POFMA (more stumbling fools and liars self-exposed in the wake), it is the beginning of the end of PAPpypolitic (and maybe LEE-jiapore too).

    LEGACY DREAMS ARE UP THE SH*T.

    Voters Don't Get It: No money still got ‘Coke Lite’ to drink? After this election, drink ‘longkang’ water more likely. No wonder this constituent got all the word ‘kang’ behind them. This area will become even more ‘dilapidated, old and dirty’ like US ghettos for the next few years.

  • Strange for PSP Denied:

    holkien me:
    Strange,PM Lee wants to “formalise* Pritam Singh of WP as Leader of The Oppositin.

    I find it odd.
    Why Lee Hsien Loong anoint the opposition leader?

    Sad Dr Tan and Dr Chee did not make it.
    Both to me have the charisma for leading the opposition.

    I think it is unnecessary for PAP to appoint Opposition Leader.
    It is up to opposition to do so.
    Strange.

    Tech: Walao eh, co-driver lay, sure must take care mah. lol

    Technically I believe PAP can offer Coalition with WP if one day PAP lose even more seats.

    Tech: I respectfully disagree. WP has carved out a brand for itself, a coalition would mean they would be PAP lite and that might turn their supporters away, unless the PAP has been reduced to minority, then that’s a different story.

    Picture this: ‘Sisters’ Nicole Seah and Kate Spade Tin holding hands and walking down Orchard Road promoting a new policy. A sight anyone can accept? lol

  • Pioneer:

    I think Mr Low Thia Khiang will be very happy and proud of his Workers Party team in GE2020 results. Imagine those years as MP, Mr Low was the lone WP MP and Mr Chiam had to do battles with all the birds of the same feathers (white MPs & $$millions dollars ministeers) in Parlimen. Mr Low deserves a good break after in Parlimen since 1991, and he felt it was time to hand over to younger WP team (renewal). We empathize with Mr Low for for difficult times he had to face in the past as Hougang MP, not forgetting the pay and pay fixing of the oppositions and many obstacles all the way. We thank him for making WP the strongest oppo party in SG today.

    Yio Chu Kang and Choa Chu Kang.

    Hougang, Sengkang, Yio Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang…

    However, Lim Chu Kang is the most silent constituency with underground residents.

  • pap Heng is unwanted:

    too bad WP did not win East Coast and Dr Tan CB did not win West Coast.

    BUT we must be fair.

    the % garnered by WP in East Coast is a promise that East Coast SHALL go to WP in the next GE.

    more than this, East Coast residents are telling pap Heng to go suck eggs.

    Also the % garnered by Dr Tan CB in West Coast is a promise that West Coast SHALL go to PSP in the next GE.

    much more than this, West Coast residents are telling pap that 2 ministers in ward do not any good make.

    WP and PSP have shown the way.

    Sincerely hope the other bro’s and sis’s from SDP RP and so on disband and join either WP or PSP for a sure win in next GE.

    Had hoped East Coast West Coast Marine Parade go to WP and PSP. but residents there say next time. Okay. Voters choice. 5 years not a long time to wait.

  • AristoCATs - Excellence ?:

    oxygen:
    POLITICAL GROOMING is all too often fraud with failure – Mahathir groomed Anwar Ibrahim, then Abdullah Badawi; Bob Hawke groomed Paul Keating who finally butt kicked him out of the caucus in a party-room spill, Margaret Thatcher groomed John Major, John Howard groomed Peter Costello (who quit empty-handed).

    The reason is very simple – according to pyschologists – WE CHOOSE THE PEOPLE WE LIKE AND WHO DO WE LIKE? Those who look like ourselves.

    Witness this phenomena – when you see couples on the street walking together with kids, they tend to look like each other than facial appearances far apart.

    SO POLITICAL GROOMING CHOOSE who we like, NOT WHO IS CAPABLE.

    -
    Very true.

    Even successful organizations -
    IBM
    CitiBank
    GE

    Careful and long succession planning faltered with dire consequences.
    -
    SG Voters have wised up.

  • Ex-PAP Voters:

    PAP Is No More The Same As Before

    On Polling Day, I accompanied my mother to the polling station. However, the experience was unlike that in the previous general elections when voting was a breeze and took us less than 10 minutes.

    We arrived at Northland Primary School at about 8.30 am, though the morning slot for elders was supposed to be from 9 am to 11 am. However, there was already a very long queue. The end of the queue was about 600 metres from the entrance of the school and the queue meandered through various compartments of the school for another 300 meters or so. As my mum is 78 years old and has an existing health condition, we approached the presiding officer for a solution.

    When we met the presiding officer, there were other seniors there to complain about the long queue and long waiting time.

    We debated with the presiding officer, who was obviously at a loss as to her authority on the ground at the front-line of the action, and had to seek permission from her superior twice by phone, before my mum and other seniors were allowed to sit on a wooden bench at a hastily-arranged waiting area near but just outside the voting area.

    I question why a seemingly predictable situation like this was not accounted for beforehand – wheel chairs should have been provided, like in the polyclinics and hospitals, and a pre-arranged designated sitting area for seniors should have been catered for well before Polling Day.

    Altogether, it took us 58 minutes, for what use to be only 10 minutes, to cast our votes – a clear indication of incompetency, inefficiency and negligence.

    So, in our final decision, we voted for PSP instead of PAP, the party we have voted all along, for years.

    Shanmugam is right. He and his party’s leadership need a serious soul searching. But no amount of hours of soul searching can reverse the trend, once the avalanche has started from the tip of the mountain downwards.

    //I question why a seemingly predictable situation like this was not accounted for beforehand – wheel chairs should have been provided, like in the polyclinics and hospitals, and a pre-arranged designated sitting area for seniors should have been catered for well before Polling Day.//

    not so predictable situation ? just like wear mask or not wear mask ? just that the white idiots like to present neat koyok (easier for the uninitiated to digest) to ‘fool’ daft sinkies ?

    CONVIT99 is new and having elrection during CONVIT99 (pandemic) is also first for many (in their living memory) with many new additional measures and time slots (so-called better slots ???) for different people ?

    the bet by the white monkey idiots (depending on how one wants to interpret the results) backfired – the white monkey idiots like to boast being prepared for long term but this short term elrection event has shown their ‘vulnerability’ ???
