Post General Elections 2020

As the dust has yet to settle on Singapore’s 18th General Election with post-revelations of irregularities and double standards, I cannot help but not share the same euphoric and optimism as some Singaporeans for our future and I shall elaborate on the reasons:

1. Although the WP has managed to capture another GRC owing to gutter politicking by the establishment, the PAP still controls an unacceptable 83 seats in Parliament which makes frequent adjustments to the Constitution entirely plausible without much dissent.

2. The Sec-Gen of the WP though offered “Leader of the Opposition” title by the government in name, still has that unresolved PRPTC lawsuit hanging over his head as is his fellow MP Raeesah Khan who has been implicated in ongoing police investigations by an ardent PAP member. Mr Singh, Ms Lim and Ms Raeesah’s victories may in fact be short lived as there is always that “back door” avenues to remove them.

3. Recent Court cases of “slap on the wrist” sentences for the affluent while relentless pursuit by an unaccountable AGC against civil activists if anything, should indicate that its “business as usual” as there was no change from the previous electoral power that the Cabinet held.

4. Despite a whopping $91 billion of taxpayer dollars that were dispensed to the various corporations instead of the citizenry, it is still unable to overcome the waves of massive retrenchments with more to come. These masses cannot be expected to be retrained for other menial jobs and we have not heard any concrete plans to assist them besides trumpeted motherhood statements.

5. The apathy of a good number of people who are either unaware of prevailing issues or unwilling to step forward to aid the 3 main Opposition parties mount a good campaign against the PA grassroots, resulted in weak scores at some Constituencies for the Opposition, particularly in MacPherson, Mountbatten & Yuhua. It is a folly to believe those PAP candidates are strong and hardworking when so many in their wards are displaced even with the “high scores”.

As a GRAB food deliverer in Marine Parade, I was much appalled when I learnt of fellow youths who are unable to find jobs as myself voting for PAP as they’re unaware of who to vote as they do not know much about the Opposition profile in our area. In my opinion, the Opposition must do 3 things to make a breakthrough at the next polls:

1. Form an alternative charity arm with fundraiser to aid poorer folks in wards like MacPherson and Radin Mas.

2. Emulate the Red Dot United’s model in assigning and dividing candidates’ roles at the various wards where residents can turn to for alternative help or communicate to keep the incumbent constantly on their toes. These issues can be highlighted either through their respective parties’ letterheads or Social Media which SDP team Marsiling-Yew Tee did.

3. Avoid 3 cornered fights at all costs and distancing from so-called sideline “political commentators”, who are planted to stir Opposition resentment against 1 another, thereby entrenching the PAP’s divide and rule strategy.

In the words of Mr LTK to his detractors: “what have you done to advance the Opposition’s cause besides arm-chair critiquing?” All the more we should commend the opposing team of Jalan Besar and MacPherson as they stepped up to fill the void when the other 3 parties could not field candidates there!

With this, I wish the WP, SDP and PSP much more successes at GE 2024 or 25 and I look forward to the WP stepping up engagement at my Marine Parade and neighbouring Macpherson.

  • opposition dude:

    We are not even a month past the elections and we are slowly seeing what else PAP has up their sleeve now that the LO position has been announced. What voters want is job security and not wayang statements like it can’t be helped, retrenchments are expected to rise.

    There is plenty of unfairness when it comes to the elections but look on the bright side, WP managed to win another GRC and kick out 4 of the donkeys at the same time!

    For such an experienced party PAP sure is great at fumbling and stumbling though. From their arrogant PAP lite statement to their jobs jobs jobs repeated non stop throughout the campaign period it resulted in an almost 9% vote share drop. So much for being an opportunist eh Hsien Loong? HA HA HA!

    Just sit back and wait for more announcements from PAP, we have got 4 to 5 years until the next GE after all so there is plenty of time for PAP to do their wayangs. It’s not as if we do not know PAP’s wayangs after all, they have done it numerous times so we are sceptical of them whenever something is announced. Nothing they do shocks us anymore since it will only be detrimental to us.

  • lee kuan yew hse torn apart:

    S$91b is wasted on paying for 400,000 alien PMETs.

    61% sheep who voted pap has failed to realize all the cotton they produce has been abused by pap wasting them on alien PMETs.

    look at the labour statistics.

    aliens + sheep unemployment went up from 2.5% to 2.9%.

    sheep unemployment went up from 3.5% to 3.9%.

    it means, without pap telling the true figures, practically, all the unemployed are sheep ONLY, 0.4% of them in the last quarter.

    all the unemployed during the last quarter was sheep.

    and yet 61% voted pap.

    clap clap clap. sheep continues to produce cotton for pap.

    PAP will learn that unlike all those years of abusing of power & all the nasty stuff they did to the opposition & the speeches PAP ministers made will be forever be recorded in the memories of today social media.

    PAP can run but for sure they can’t hide. It’s all there in the open.

    In fact PAP miscalculated the usage of the virus crisis for GE2020, thinking that nit only the fear of the virus will force Singaporeans to run to PAP for shelves but the tactic of preventing open rallies will deprived opposition parties from reaching their supporters & bringing across their messages.

    But now we know that it backfired badly on lhl. In fact it burned a big hole in the ass of lhl.

    It once again shows that lhl is nothing without his old man. Just like his wife is nothing if lhl is not PM.

    I am afraid, you hv NOT seen the truth and the reality that all those so-called oppos are self-serving and thought too highly of themselves even as they did not and have not grasp the ROOT CAUSE of the very difficult situation sinkies and SINKaPOOR face and the epic failures of the emperor without clothes.

    The so-called oppos did NOT feel that they could have gained much much more if they had talked to ME……….

    It is TIME – actually it is rather late – that sinkies are SLOWLY realising that their lives would not improve under the incompetent but self-serving rule of the PAPie regime especially under the emperor without clothes.

    In my mind, the ROT started even during the rule of the 1st G leaders after the likes of GKS, TCC, LKS, EW Barker where sent to pasture……and continued with the failures of Goh Chok Tong, and the so-called 3G leaders, especially the likes of Lee Hsien Loong, Teo Chee Hean etc………

    As soon as ge is over,PAP begins to throw out all the bad statistics they withheld before ge?
    Even the covid cases inch up.
    Only good at conning the people.
    If $100 Billion was to be allocated the way PAP allotted,with paltry sum of $600 ONCE-OFF GRANT TO CITIZENS,there would be PUBLIC UPROAR!

    IN SG,DAFT sgs still vote for the PAP which openly screws them inside out n upside down!
    Guess sgs love getting screwed,the * deeper* thebetter?

    Btw,IT IS THE DUTY N OBLIGATION OF THE GOVT TO INFORM THE PUBLIC IN A DETAILED MANNER HOW THE MONEY TAKEN FROM PUBLIC RESERVES is SPENT?

    If we can go to the fullest extent to source taxes,levies on citizens,even the neediest of sgs,i dont see why the govt cannot even PROVIDE DETAILS OF HOW MUCH FUNDS OUT OF THE $+00 BILLION are GRANTED TO THE COMPANIES ESPECIALLY THE BIGGEST ONES?

    EVEN CAHRITY FOUNDATIONS DONATED BY PRIVATE INDUCIDUALS NEED TO ACCOUNT FOR THEIR DISBURSEMENTS?

    IS IT AN IMPOSSIBLE TASK FOR THE GOVT TO DO LIKEWISE N PUBLISH THE DETAILS OF WHERE THE $100 BILLION GO TO?
    For example,HOW MUCH GRANT GIVEN TO ABC BANK OR XYZ CORP?
    HOW MUCH TO HYFLUX OR HOW MUCH TO LOWFLUX?
    HOW MUCH TO TH AND HOW much to GOLDMAN SACHS?

    PaP had a Good Start since 1959…followed up by an Evil Move by a bast**d who suppresses all views that differ from him GOOD bad or ugly by Nationalists – Commie sympathisers & PATRIOTS…especially Patriots…

    Today we have Communists Party Members doing business in Singapore…Foreign Shit passing off as Talents and Pigs in Parliament seeking Fortune more than Service to the People who placed them there…

    It will take TIME but a silver Lining is creeping through the Dark Clouds and soon it will be Sunshine…

    Post General Erections 2020…

    Nothing has changed. Pappies still retain supermajority. Can do anything they like. Even with Oppos questioning them.

    GST, Water tax, ERP, Carbon tax, Carpark, Electricity, Everything Up… But your salary remains. Or you kana retrenched.

    Prepare to suffer for another 5 years.

    LHL is sore loser in life. without 2015 Ge held after his fathers death all he got was lower and lower votes and despite increasing the new citizen numbers . Why because LHL did not realise that the new citizens once they go their citizenship will want to prevent even more Fts coming to displace them

  • Cuntry run by eunuchs:

    In the story, Emperor’s New Clothes, it only takes an innocent boy to point out that the Emperor is actually naked. Here in $G however all the sycophantic eunuchs will pretend that he is fully clothed. We don’t need x-ray vision, “distorted lenses” or VR goggles to see the truth! Haven’t history taught us that a country run by yes-men eunuchs will eventually crumble?

    During the swearing-in of MPs, they took the oath with this;

    “… and to the best of my knowledge and ability, without fear or favour, affection or ill-will.”

    I just like to ask from where each and every MP got his/her knowledge, and what ability does anyone of them has? I know their ability is to say “YES” in parliament, what else?

    I am not sure if cotton comes from sheep, since the day a Minister said it was! How an electrical trained Minister knew anything about virus?
