Lawrence Wong should stop acting like the grand saga of PAP

Click to expand

Come on Lawrence Wong, the Workers Party MPs are not school boys and girls elected into parliament. Neither are you a school prefect watching over your charges. Pritam Singh, Sylvia Lim and you were elected into parliament in the same year in 2011.

But with one big difference – you came in on the coattails of two ministers in West Coast GRC, while Pritam and Sylvia had to fight to their darndest with Low Thia Khiang and his team, to wrest Aljunied GRC from two cabinet ministers and one senior minister of state.

Please stop acting as though you are the grand sage of the PAP with all the years of political wisdom and worldliness coupled with lengthy experience in parliamentary and contentious debates in policy proposals and issues. Those titles are reserved for the very few in Singapore’s parliamentary history.

What right do you have to admonish the WP and remind them that they cannot just continue to question and ask for changes to government policy?

As elected MPs of course they have every right to continue to ask questions of the PAP government. That is their right and job to do so. Because if they don’t then they are not true representatives of the people who voted for them.

Remember the blank cheque which Jamus Lim spoke about in the TV debate? It resonated well with many Singaporeans.

As for alternate policy proposals, that is something that the WP has been doing all along and will continue to do so despite the inaccessibility of govt data, reports and statistics.

We live in hope that the newly elected opposition MPs will receive the respect and support that they are entitled to in a parliamentary democracy.

PM Lee has said he will provide the necessary support and staff to Pritam. He also looks forward to the 10 new opposition MPs and two NCMPs participating in and contributing to parliamentary and national debates – we shall see if the PM and his cabinet will be truthful and respectful partners in this endeavour.

    How can anyone do any serious planning when they don’t know how much money is there? When they don’t know how much some people are drawing from the piggy bank? $100 million salary or $99 million?

    This gov must open up all data for WP to do serious planning.

  • An entrapment:

    Pritam should be mindful of such appointment.

    It is in the best interest of WP and constituents for Pritam to engage the Government through legal counsel to have it in writing what are the types of information will be provided before Accepting the appointment!

    The head of the support staff should have a certain seniority and rank for him to have a certain CLOUT to obtain information! Otherwise NO DEAL!

    ITS AN ENTRAPMENT!

    Now that heng sweet cake fumbled badly with his east coast east coast and kee chiu blundered with his xia stay video leaks and both have gone into hiding.

    Lorry wong takes centre stage to speak like the boss of 4Gs gave his analysis of the votes swing.

    Don’t trust this opportunistic chap who is becoming arrogant and too full of himself.

  • ah guan:

    LW has taken upon himself to try and teach what WP’s MP should or should not do. Just because he wears a minister’s hat, he begin to think and behave like King ? He forgot that his HAT can be striped off anytime. If he does not already know that opposition only has 10 MPs which is not even plausible to form a “shadow cabinet”, then PAP should consider seriously sending him back to school.
    WPs should and must continue to ask tough questions and hopefully, PAP has now learnt a lesson by listening more and take WP more seriously before it is ruined by the so called 4G leaders.
    For a party to propose alternative policies, it is not an easy task, especially for opposition in Singapore. All Singaporeans know that. For LW even have the audacity to say what he has said, that goes to show how naive and stupid he is.
    Bear in mind LW, WP did not win the extra GRC by listening to you. Your party lost the new GRC, carved out at the very last minute with the intent to defeat WP by surprise which turned out to be the other way. You and your colleagues had dug your own grave. Instead, learn from WP, not trying to teach them kindergarten stuff.

  • opposition dude:

    I don’t mind hearing what proposals WP has, it definitely would be way better than PAP because it would be FOR the people and not for $$$$ like PAP.

    Pritam is correct in saying that WP would require more info to proceed. He should also have said that WP MPs should be allowed to sit in on policies when they are being drawn up so as to ask more questions on just how a policy is drawn up.

    Because if this goes the way I think it’s going to then PAP will simply shoot down whatever WP proposes by using statements such as “That would not work without raising some sort of tax” or “Your policy will never work, our current policy already works well enough”. After all PAP loves to think that their own policies are the greatest ever do they not?

    So WP, take up the gauntlet and come out with your own policies! Do not be afraid of PAP! Let us know in detail about your policies so that we can suggest changes if any are required since we citizens will be the ones affected by the policies.

    Looking forward to hearing from you guys!

    Well, why do all of you think the village chief said he will provide support ? He is trying to make sure the oppo chief gets trapped in the state that after providing him with resources, he doesn’t deliver better than the village chief’s men. Playing games again.

  • it is 10m:

    it never ceases to amaze us old folks in Aljunied how such a laulan wrong from pap can be voted into parleement by cotton producing sheep.

    maybe because sheep is already brainless.

    AND cotton producing sheep even more brainless.

    after GE2015, water price rise, electricity price rise, carpark price rise, and anything that can be risen all rise.

    YET GE2020 cotton producing sheep, 61% of them, voted for 9% GST. when in all likelihood many of them have children holding nus nut smu degrees not having a full time job or are working under aliens holding fake ceca degrees or fake pinoy degrees.

  • SG ELECTION IS A JOKE!!!:

    SG ELECTION IS A JOKE!!! I’ve said this many times.
    People like Goh Meng Seng / Reform party and all the other oppo clowns who just want to get elected into parliament. Really?

    - In Election you fight to win and form the govt.
    - The people vote for what you promise the electorates.
    - Start implement the law and get the bill passed right away.

    This is exactly what MIW have been doing all these decades.
    and they screw you even harder for the next 5 years if they have a strong mandate.

    I will no longer cast my vote in the next GE2025 if there is no serious Oppos who can take this approach to contest all seats and form the next govt. Even if it is 3 or 4 corner fight – so be it.

    Am getting really sick with Singkies mentality of Elections i.e.
    “VOTE me so I can speak for you” This is Rubbish I say. What can you really do by talking cock in parliament and still can’t get the law changed.

    OYK lost in Aljunied in 2011, did not remain in Aljunied to serve Citizens there and run to Sembawang. HCH lost in Hougang also did not stay back in Hougang, Son of Ponggol East, Teochew Porridge DC all same….

    None of the current lot of PAPies has rights to tell WP MPs what to do and how to do…! PS & SL have what it takes to earn the respects of Singaporeans and Supporters !

    Appointing an official opposition leader could be one of many fixes of lhl.

    Lhl is not an honourable character nor is he a trustworthy person.
    Who knows him better than the people who know him from young & seeing him up close.
    So I believe their assessment of lhl totally.

    These PAP ministers are beginning to act like old birds.
    What a shameless group!

    They should try looking & remember the number of votes they got in GE2020 & past.

    PAPPYpolitic/PAPpynomics COMPLETELY FARKED UP the economy –

    - Present Tense told the nation in 2015 the economy MAXED OUT and in 2016, the restructuring failed that is why so much apin

    - Flubbing East Coast Heng told peasants just before 2020 ERECTION, our financial balance sheet over the next few years is going to be a lot worse than currently.

    AND THEY WANT PRITAM SINGH/WP to mend the economy with just 10 MPs and they have the blocking power of “clear mandate”?

    WHAT ARE THE PAPpy monkeys paid for?

    Just to fart political gas of telling peasants 1% truth, 99% lies, fantasy, propaganda and the float balloon ( 10 million population target in practice BUT ADMITTING NOTHING of official pronouncement because of ITS EXPLOSIVE political/electoral sensitivities)??

    Why not simply hand in your resignation letter on the clean side of kachang puteh paper, hand write it – that way, at least you are “green” of kindness and generosity to the environment – of saving electricity, printing ink and also another tree in the forest from being murdered by lumberjacks???

That is their right and job to do so. Because if they don’t then they are not true representatives of the people who voted for them.<<

    Asking questions if NOT the ONLY "their right and job to do so", BUT to DEBATE the issues pertaining to FAILED POLICIES with disastrous consequences for SINKaPOOR and sinkies.

    There is enough information in the PUBLIC domain for DEBATES; notwithstanding the PAPies refusal to provide details or access to govt info.

    I have emailed about the FACTS which would call out Law & Hone Affairs Minister's crap about the supposed Rule of Law & the strong trust in the judiciary as follows:

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

    Link: https://www.straitstimes.com/politics/strong-trusted-judiciary-the-bedrock-of-rule-of-law-shanmugam

    The said instance of the FAILURE of the wayang party to discharge its "right (to do their) job", their duties and responsibilities as a true opposition as just being a wayang party as "CO-DRIVER" of the PAPies must NOT be forgotten, like you have, is only ONE of the several examples of the ABJECT FAILURE of the wayang party to safeguard the interests of sinkies and SINKaPOOR.

    Remember that for all the vitriol against the PAPie use of POFMA, Pritam Singh was a member of the Parliamentary Select Committee whose sole purpose, in my opinion, was to legitimise the legislation of POFMA. Pritam Singh should explain his role in the Select Committee and how had voiced out his disapproval of POFMA if he had done so, which I very much doubt.

    My suggestion to YOU and your fellow IBs, whether you belong to one or not is unimportant, is STFU………at least until you get the FULL facts of the wayang party's BETRAYAL of sinkies for their own self-interest.

    Now that Lawrence Wong is the Minister for Education, he shoud go one step ahead of Ong Ye Kung by scrapping the streaming of students who sit fot PSLE this year so as to make 2021 the first year of full inception of the Subject-Based-Banding system of education.

    Covid19 has adversely affected many students, especially those sitting for this year’s PSLE. To be fair to them, Scrap the infamous Normal/Express streaming. Result slips should not show the notorious t-score and the stream.

    Lawrence Wong is still VERY ARROGANT. This idiot without a care ON how people will take in the 99-yr lease turning to ZERO BIG news, has slapped us very hard on our faces with these words.

    Imagine someone at the govt level, comes and tells you that your property will be worth $0 when 99 years is up which means all your hard earned 40-50 years of money is in the end $0 and you have no more roof over your head.

    Lawrence Wong will never learn, he will never understand. After PM Lee’s latest speech on how P*P MPs need to conduct themselves is announced, people like Lawrence Wong will never change. He and the rest of his kakis are just going to put on a humble face, humble speech with a very big wayang show of the next 100 years.

    LW will never learn – Indranee will never learn – Chan will never learn – Heng will never learn….. They are toooooo snobbish!!
