To Workers Party & All Its Supporters

To Workers Party, residents of Hougang SMC, Aljunied GRC and SengKang GRC.

Truth be told, we had intended to shut TR Emeritus (TRE) down for good should the alternative parties be wiped out during this pandemic General Elections.

Glad they weren’t. Thank you very much.

  • PAP’s Votes Share for the past 10 GEs:

    GE 2020: 61.24% (Covid-19 Pandemic)
    GE 2015: 69.7% (Lee Kuan Yew’s death)
    GE 2011: 60.1% (PM Lee said “sorry”)
    GE 2006: 66.6%
    GE 2001: 75.3% (9/11 incident)
    GE 1997: 65%
    GE 1991: 61%
    GE 1988: 63.1%
    GE 1984: 62.9%
    GE 1980: 75.6%
    GE 1976: 72.4%

    What does the figures suggest?

    IMHO, despite the scare of the Covid-19 pandemic, many still proceeded to vote against the party without being hoodwinked. The party’s vote share remains on the low side, matching GE 1991 and GE 2011 (lowest).

    Suffice to say, the Covid-19 had affected the vote share a bit, so logical to think had it not been for the pandemic, the party would lose more vote share.

    So, winning mandate Yes, but strong and overwhelming mandate? Neh!

    What do you think?

  • PAP Deceptive & Deceitful ?:

    PAP should be very scared. Their deceitful deceptive ways has not changed a bit. Looks like our reserves do serve 1 purpose : Just spent like nobody’s business during election to fight against the opposition in the name of the pandemic. Unlike the older generation, the younger generation are not easily deceived by PAP. That is probably why PAP lose Sengang now. PAP deceptive ways of control free speech really pisses younger people off, I suppose. If PAP continue to be deceptive and deceitful, the younger generation is not going to buy that grandmother story of a big crisis facing Singapore again

  • While we all may not agree with the WP’s stance of being content with just a co-driver seat in Parliament, they have proven themselves that voters like their current status.

    With today’s result, if oppose wants better inroads in future GE, I would strongly suggest that those fly-by-night smaller oppose parties should just follow SinFirst and de-register themselves and join the more electable WP, or maybe SDP and PSP.

    Frankly, having been with TRE for years, even I don’t know who is who as far as the candidates from the smaller parties like RP, PV, SDA and SPP are, with the exception of their SecGen.

    Given that this GE was a pandemic one with odds highly stacked against oppose parties, without proper rallies, how do you expect Uncles and Aunties to even get to know them? Not all Uncles and Aunties uses WhatsApp and Facebook right?

    I hope these oppose parties really do some soul searching and don’t anyhow contest a GE for fun, aiming for a “quite ok” result.

    If they are really serious about their ideas and wanting to serve, join an electable party and get elected first! It’s pointless to talk about aspirations and principle (like this party no like that party, simi idea not same as mine, all that crap), when you are not even in Parliament.

    Even sexpert and Keeqiu got elected. Would they be electable if say they were with an oppose party? Why? Its the branding! Like it or not, I currently see only WP and PSP has that (sorry SDP).

    My 2 cents.

    TRE Techie

    A LOT OF HUNGER fear driven votes – it is a discrepit mandate. The highest scoring GRCs/SMC PAPpypolitic win has within those bunkers odd-balls intensely discredited in the social media whilst flubbing East Coast emperor in waiting and cotton on sheep professor scored much lower than 60.1.

    Voters are looking for survival sustenance handout from public purse called national reserves which have been splurged on foreigners.

    Notice also good men like Dr Chee, Lim Tean, KJ and Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s team didn’t make it to the rostrum. Hungry fearful voters are sending this message – each man for himself and today’s hunger – political wisdom and capacity to deliver for the future can wait.

    Now can PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics – in a sea of desperation hunger looming – of inevitable deep recession and uncertain recovery length and relief – supply the survival sustenance?

    If PAPpypolitics cannot deliver of survival sustenance and/or economic recovery restructuring, IT IS THE END OF PAPpy legacy and LEE-jiapore together except those who are financially secured without debt borrowing.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK?

  • The Last Laugh:

    Remember the PM was cracking a joke on the Opposition in SengKang GRC and all the PAP candidates were laughing loudly on TV. It was unbecoming of a PM to laugh at the Opposition and look down on them.

    Now that they have lost SengKang GRC to a brand new team from Workers Party and the Workers Party candidates have the last laugh at the PAP. The PM cannot spiak anymore.

    Lesson learnt – Never laugh and despise your enemies. It may come back at you.

    3) Party branding is important. WP’s long term branding of itself as a political responsible opposition is paying off. People are no longer afraid of a bogeyman as in the past, being implanted by the incumbent into the mind of the people.

    4) Myriad of social, economic and political issues that are suddenly dug out, instead of showing the incumbents are mind-over-matter, showed how incompetent and ineffective the incumbents have been.

    5) growing savviness, awareness and ability to question the status quo as the older, useless generation slowing exiting the political landscape.

    Given the uphill tasks and outsiders’ disadvantages facing the alternative parties, their performances are worthy of respect. If everything was fair & one-to-one, pappies without nothing advantage to cling on to, wil
    would only win marginally with a good number of them panicked and lost their pants. The pappies are weaklings without true sparring partners to strengthen their reflexes and spontaneity out-of-the-20-year-series-modal-answers to unpredictability and changing external circumstances.

  • Realistically:

    Firstly, I congratulate the Workers’ Party for their success……..a win is a win.

    However, I have mixed feelings that SINKaPOOR and sinkies as a whole would not see much improvement in their job prospects and their future UNLESS, the new WP MPs can engage the PAPies in CONSTRUCTIVE DEBATES about the ROOT CAUSES and our economic model.

    Sinkies as a whole are really fed-up and disenchanted with the incompetence and abuse of power of the emperor without clothes, and would choose to show their disgust with the emperor……….even Chee Soon Juan increased his vote share in Bukit Batok.

    For me this was a GE, the oppos are to lose, IF they had been more focuses on the national issues like the emperor’s incompetence, arrogance and epic failures……..in his handling of the economy, our reserves and jobs……….The COVID-19 epic failure would have been a good driving force against the emperor IF properly exposed by the oppos, especially, Prof Tambyah and Dr Tan Cheng Bok………..but alas they failed to grasp the unique opportunity.

    I have also made myself available to discuss issues with the main oppos, but nobody took up my offer………..pity. (Not boasting, but think why the emperor is “FIXING” me, if not because I can call out his failures and abuse of power, leading to such drain on our reserves and economy.

    Quite frankly, I fear for the future of SINKaPOOR and sinkies.

    INDEED, even Dennis Tan Lip Fong is a newbie to Hougang SMC, even bettered the performance of his popular predecessor – Png Eng Huat. Pitted against Dennis Tan is a strong veteran in that constituency who saw his vote share crumbles DESPITE THE PAPpypolitics’ pre-election lolly handout and estate upgrading, Home Improvement Scheme seduction baits. Hougang voters treat these with mocking contempt at the Polling booth.

    The Last Laugh: Now that they have lost SengKang GRC to a brand new team from Workers Party and the Workers Party candidates have the last laugh at the PAP. The PM cannot spiak anymore.

    Lesson learnt – Never laugh and despise your enemies. It may come back at you.

    Even Present Tense called up Pritam Singh to congratulate WP’s outstanding performance, promising to call him “Leader of the Opposition” implying more Oppie parties will make inroad into Parliament. This round the PSP will contribute 2 NCMP.

    If Present Tense is shiny of enlightened Oppie participation in domestic politics, IS THERE ANYTHING TO STOP HIM FROM ADDING 10 MORE OPPIES NCMP instead of just 2??

    Now can PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics – in a sea of desperation hunger looming – of inevitable deep recession and uncertain recovery length and relief – supply the survival sustenance?

    Present Tens election post-mortem confessed the same.

    Present Tense: the percentage of the popular vote for the PAP was “not as good as we hoped for”. The results reflected the “pain and uncertainty” of Singaporeans.

    THIS ELECTION POINTS TO CLARITY – the proverbial “emperor’s throne” is rotation for incumbency. Without the new citizen support, a little more dance of voters’ decision choice would have toppled the crown in East Coast and West Coast.

    Nothing is sacred and nobody is indispensible – we almost got two “Aljunied 2011″ repeat show.

    Voters know they hold the cane and PAPpypolitics reach out to Pritam Singh (instead of “FIXING” promise) tacitly acknowledge the same.

    Way to go, Aljunied

    It was a good result overall for the alternate parties.
    A great contest of course by WP.

    but i think the biggest & more damage to PAP & especially to lhl, is the % of votes goes down significantly.
    This is because of the uncertainty in the next GE.

    5% flip in next GE, how many seats will be gone. This will be what keeps lhl & his cronies awake at night.
    Of course, PAP ministers have the comfort of having $millions in their bank accounrs & the almost certainty that a bigger paying job is line up even if he is voted out tomorrow.

    This is the different between oppositoon & PAP polticians.

    1) The young generation has different set of priorities and expectations.

    2) The GRC created to mute the eloquent/charismatic contester is no longer effective in the age of growing digital media.

    3) Party branding is important. WP’s long term branding of itself as a political responsible opposition is paying off. People are no longer afraid of a bogeyman as in the past, being implanted by the incumbent into the mind of the people.

    4) Myriad of social, economic and political issues that are suddenly dug out, instead of showing the incumbents are mind-over-matter, showed how incompetent and ineffective the incumbents have been.

    5) growing savviness, awareness and ability to question the status quo as the older, useless generation slowing exiting the political landscape.

    Zhenzidan: TRE had been relentlessly attacking WP, calling them ineffective, useless, only take $16,000 and do nothing, WP didn’t want to form opposition alliance, call WP arrogant and all sorts of names, now WP proved them wrong and start carrying WP balls! Pui!

    Mod: That is not true. TRE is only a platform and all opinions expressed are of the writers’ own. TRE has stated explicitly that we do not take sides. Write more articles praising PAP or WP and it would also appear on TRE. So can we then be said to support PAP or WP?

    Don’t try to deny. Whenever readers start attacking WP, you also joined in the fray, when as a moderator, you should be neutral. I have had arguments with you many times, and you even grudgingly told me off by saying “You can compose poems to praise WP and it will still be published.” So what even if you published comments praising WP? Just know where you need to stand as a moderator. The Chinese has a saying “顺风转托”。Meaning, following the wind direction. After WP made you Chui Tat Lan, you changed your tone and congratulate WP.

    Mod: You are so very wrong and childish in your thinking. Just because WP won does not mean that TRE has to carry their balls. Have you seen TRE carrying any party’s balls since it was revived in 2011? Congratulating the winner is a natural thing to do when they win, we would have done the same for PSP or SDP if they had won. TRE gains nothing from carrying any party’s balls, so why should we even bother? Is WP going to donate the millions they collected to TRE if we kiss their a$$e like some supporters do with the ruling party?

    You accused TRE of being biased against WP when GMS posted articles critical of WP, but have you seen TRE also publish articles that were critical of GMS? Because you support WP so TRE cannot publish articles critical of WP? If WP cannot take simple criticism, then they don’t deserve to be in Parliament because they would only be “PAP Lite”.

    Once again, TRE only provides a platform for our readers to express their views regardless of who they are, be it from the left or right camps. Feel free to submit your own articles to criticise or praise any other parties you desire and it will be published, according to our AUP and TOS.

    Yes, me feel the same way as well. WP is a useless party so far. They did well this time, thanks to the co-driver LTK and non-performance CSMiao stepping down. Otherwise they could be wiped out yesterday. Now we will probably see status quo in parliament. But overall its also good to see the bullying party won only 60% as compared to GE2015 with 70%. Not a full mandate at least. Its still a good win for Singaporeans. We still have 60% sheeps blinded by greed and selfishness. Hopefully, the opposition parties will do better next time.

    If the perception of WP is what you described above, then it should be the WP who should examine why and not pin the blame on critics. There is a Chinese saying that if people are still bothered to criticise you, then you still have hope because you can change, if there is a need to. It is only when people cannot be bothered with you that you need to start worrying because there will be no one there to tell you why.

    As someone who has been with TRE for years, allow me to tell you that TRE and WP goes back a long way, all the way back to JBJ’s time. As a matter of fact, it was TRE which caused the sensational downfall of WP’s then MP Yaw (spelling?) when WP was under Low, if I am not mistaken.

    Back then, TRE was the first media to contact WP offering to help, because only TRE had that info, but WP completely ignored TRE, forcing TRE to go live with the info, resulting in all MSM picking up the story to the point of no return.

    Anyway, if you ask me now whether TRE would do it again, my answer would be yes and it is not because we don’t like WP, but because we are trying to be unbiased and we would do it to any other parties, be it ruling or not.

    So please stop accusing TRE of being biased against only WP because we have not been and are not trying to. Like our mod said, any articles from anyone critical of any party will be published as long as it is within our AUP and TOS.

    TRE is sympathetic towards alternative parties’ cause given the unlevel playing field but that does not mean that we should ignore whatever they did wrong or unreasonable.

    We apply the same standard and expectation to ourselves, which is why all your reasonable accusations leveled at TRE are published.

    How Many MODs @TRE… each “think’ differently leh!!! or is there a Editor Mod to edit?

    Tech: There is no ultimate boss at TRE, it’s a collective effort with each manning his/her own. Everything is done on common consensus and every one of us is encouraged to correct each other’s mistakes. TRE is a small outfit, we have only 5 volunteers with backend access, each manning TRE own-time-own-target.

    To let you in on a secret, TRE during Yaw’s time was BIGGER, with more than 20 regular contributors and staff, plenty of ‘experts’, for the lack of a better word. On the Yaw affair, TRE had offered to help and would have spun the article until Yaw looks like a saint, since it was only TRE that had the info then.

    The art of wayang-kulit was not only the party’s sole entitlement to use and abuse, if you go back in time and read some of the articles when TRE was Wayang Party under different management, you would probably understand why it was then well supported by many netizens. Back then, wayang-kulit and spinning were what the team did best. As Chinese saying goes, can wayang until the birds voluntarily come down from the tree and still dunno why. lol

    Does WP need your help? The way TRE always calling WP “ineffective” and “useless”, any surprise why the WP ignored you? Don’t say “force”! WP never “forced” you. It was you who wanted to be the first to publish this juicy news, resulting in Yaw’s downfall. Until now, unlike the two PAP MPs who admitted to their having affairs, Yaw has still not been proven guilty and if he is not guilty, then the TRE was guilty of causing an innocent man his downfall! And you got the cheek to tell us you “offered to help” ? Please lah!

    Tech: Yaw was anything but innocent. In fact, he was guilty as charged. You do not have the information that TRE has. TRE even had information from and on his then mistress.

    “When the quality of the judiciary suffers, the rule of law suffers. When the rule of law suffers, the country suffers,” he added.

    Why do you think I openly stated that I stand with Ms Raeesah Khan on the Police Report of Ms Shah’s posting in 2018 & the Police SWIFT response by getting the advice of the Attorney-General? Why do you think that the Police, as far as I know from the lack of any news in the 158th has NOT taken any action against Ms Shah, but instead is investigating the person/s who made the report?
    I have emailed the Commissioner of Police cc Mr Shanmugam as Home Affairs and Law Minister, why is that there is no reply to my Police Report made pursuant to section 16 of the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act (AJPA) in March 2020? Link to AJPA: https://sso.agc.gov.sg/Act/AJPA2016#pr16-

    Actually, I have cited s 16 of the AJPA in some of my comments before on TRE and that I am on PM Lee Hsien Loong’s how to “fix” his critics.
    The issue of my Police Report (and if you were to read the AJPA and the ST article) is about the RULE OF LAW, or the lack of it in my case, which Mr Shanmugam had stated in the Parliamentary statement about how very important it is, as referred in the ST article.
    I do hope that Ms Raeesah Shah would bring this matter up in Parliament when it meets, now that she is an MP. For her sake as well as mine and for Singapore and sinkies.

    WP never blame critics like TRE. They also can’t be bothered because they what they are doing, unlike you. The 2020 results showed that despite all your column’s attacks (yes, attack, not criticism) they put up their best show. The Chinese has a saying : 有嘴说别人,没嘴说自己”。

    So I think you should be the one to self-examine. No, there’s nothing wrong congratulating them. But during the run up to the elections, did you even encourage them? Did you even say “although we have been unsatisfied with WP’s performances, we do not hope to see them wiped out”. No. So after they proved your critics wrong, you did more than just congratulating, bit of over-glorifying them. These are two extremes which pissed me off. PAP.GUARANTEE.WIN kept telling you to close down. I do not disagree. But before you close down, let me continue to taunt at him, fiack him left and right until I lose interest.

    Tech: Just how many times do we even have to tell you that TRE don’t take sides. The articles posted on TRE are opinions of the author’s own and we do not agree or disagree with what the author is saying, with the exception editorials.

    Since TRE’s stance is that we are not for or against any political party, why should we even encourage them? WP can win or lose has absolutely nothing to do with us, if we support them they win TRE got money take issit? They win we happy for them because their battle were hard-fought, they lose, life goes on as usual on TRE.

    You are a WP supporter, we get it. Like we said, by all means, write poems and articles to glorify and counter the criticism of WP, it will also be published, why didn’t you. Instead, you blame TRE for helping in “attacking” WP because the articles we published did not support WP?

    You are now accusing TRE of carrying WP’s balls because they won and we congratulated them? Why should we since we have nothing to gain from doing so. If we had wanted to carry any balls, wouldn’t it be more logical to carry PAP’s balls instead since they have a huge fan base, if our priority is financial support?

    Your logic is so so very warped and childish.

    Anyway, on the subject of “PAP.GUARANTEE.WIN”, you can continue to grind your axe with him as long as it is within our AUP and TOS.

  • WP face Reality:

    WP Sengkang GRC team better work hard for the people …Prove yourselves inspite of a weak and inexperience team.
    Don’t be so proud….PSP West Coast Team would have won if they stand in Sengkang GRC…maybe even Aljunied.
    Not so sure the WP team can do better than the 27% Swing at West Coast GRC if they contest there…
    WP is help by the national Swing against PAP this time…
    The outcome is good for Singapore Future…better if PSP has won at West coast GRC.

    >>This topic is same as Thailand’s Majesty law.<<

    I am afraid you are WRONG, unless you can show that Thailand has the equivalent of section 16 of the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act, and more importantly, the equivalent Constitution of the Republic of Singapore.

    Section 16 of the AJPA reads as follows:

    Report in good faith made to Chief Justice, police, etc., not contempt

    16.—(1) To avoid doubt, a person is not guilty of contempt of court under section 3(1)(a) by reason that he or she has made a report to the Chief Justice, the police, a law enforcement agency or any other public authority alleging misconduct or corruption on the part of a judge, being a report —
    (a) which is made in good faith; and
    (b) which discloses grounds which, if unrebutted, would provide a sufficient basis for the investigation of the allegation of misconduct or corruption.
    (2) In this section, “law enforcement agency” has the same meaning as in the Criminal Procedure Code (Cap. 68).

    As for a judge of the Supreme Court's appointment is PREDICATED to his/her taking the oath of office pursuant to Article 97(1) of the Constitution, you might like to refer to the Court of Appeal judgment in
    Ong Wui Teck v Attorney-General [2020] SGCA 17 at [26] that Article 97(1)"..emphasises how vital the qualities of judicial independence and impartiality are to the role and function of a judge (to adhere to his/her oath of office pursuant to the First Schedule (Form 6) of the Constitution; read with Articles 2 & 4 and the concomitant breaches in my case, of Article 12).

    I have said that I had made a Police Report pursuant to section 16 and rebutted point by point the judgment in [2020] SGCA 4………which showed that the decisions of ALL those judicial officers/judges against me were ILLEGAL, NUGATORY, NULL AND VOID.

    As far as my case is concerned, what you talked about Thailand is TOTALLY MISPLACED/MISCONCEIVED.

    I hv also emphasised time and again, that there must be unity among ALL citizens, including, but especially, the politicos and jurists.

    Let me also state that the Attorney General Chambers is aware of my application for judicial review when I had earlier included the Minister of Law as a defendant in HC/OS 1496/2018, including my submission that those judicial officers/judges of the Supreme Court had breached their respective oaths of office under the Family Justice Act/Constitution of the Republic of Singapore, which gave rise to my Police Report pursuant to section 16 of the AJPA.

    Only ignorant, no commitment and self-serving politicians and lawyers would not dare to face up to the reality of the travesties of justice, contrary to publicly announced policy in Parliament as extra-judicially pronounced policy by the Chief Justice himself about enabling a LITIGANT IN PERSON to access justice.

    There are of course many other justifications to back up my Police Report pursuant to section 16 of the AJPA.

    >>This topic is same as Thailand’s Majesty law.<<

    Just for the record my reply made this morning has not appeared……

    As for your raising the Thai law, it is actually called lèse majesté under section Section 112 of the Thai Criminal Code.

    As I said, there is section 16 of the Administration of Justice (Protection) Act for which our judges are subject to under the category of 'corruption and misconduct' if they are in breach of their oath of office stated in the First Schedule (Form 6) , read with Articles 2 & 4 of of the Constitution. There is a concomitant breach of Article 12 (1) in my cases.

    Section 17 of the AJPA stated very clearly, as well as in s 16, that genuine complaints made against the judges pursuant to s 16, and pursuant to s 17, "Filing of pleadings and application against judge not contempt"

    Go check the law and the facts.

    For those who believe that our law on contempt of the court is in any way similar to Thailand’s lèse majesté law, I append below the Singapore International Commercial Court decision in a Singapore Court of Appeal judgment at [96}:"....t it is worth noting that s 17(1) of the AJA
    expressly provides that a person “is not guilty of contempt of court … for filing in good faith any action, pleading, application or affidavit in court”.

    Judgment: BNP Paribas SA v Jacob Agams & Ruth Agam [2018] SGCA (I)

    So further to my said post, what is the reaction of the lawyers at the wayang party: He Ting Ru, Pritam Singh, Slyvia Lim, Dennis Tan, Terrence Tan, Chen Show Mao; and Lim Tean of PV and so many Senior Counsels like Shanmugam, Indranee, Murali Pillai etc and the numerous other PAPie lawyers.

    Hello, didn’t Shanmugam himself (and of course others including the Chief Justice) talked about the ABSOLUTE importance of the RULE OF LAW in SINKaPOOR’s development and enabling Litigants in Person to access justice when the whole judicial system instead blatantly acted against all those ABSOLUTE IMPORTANT Rule of Law for which the wayang party shows no interest.

    Thanks for the clarification and insight as to how TRE operates.

    The person you replied to in that comment obviously has very little ability to think critically and objectively.

    If I had not come out openly to say I stand with the wayang party’s then candidate, now MP, Ms Raeesah Khan who was the subject of a Police Report and the Attorney-General Chambers’ statement that there was a disclosable offence, I wonder what the outcome would have been in terms of Sengkang GRC being won by the wayang party?

    in order to Think & be Objective, you need to KNOW!!! now you KNOW and self complimenting is the lowest form of Ego for a person who Thinks & be Objective…had it been a loss than you are at a Loss for Word “Chui Tat Lan”

    In order to be realistic and NOT Egotistic give due to others and NOT to yourself… self-praising oneself when RIGHT with the roll of a dice and belittling others who see in another light right or wrong is TYPICAL of the Man who CON YOU!!! are you from the same MOLD???
