Workers’ Party chief Pritam Singh to donate 50% of his Leader of the Opposition allowance

I like what I have read this morning.

Workers’ Party chief Pritam Singh has pledged to donate 50% of his Leader of the Opposition allowance to help needy residents and other causes. I am hearted that Pritam Singh didn’t yield to temptation to keep his lucrative allowance all for himself or “fall for the trap”. Too many lesser mortals easily would. It is Singapore and Singaporeans’ blessing to have such an opposition leader.

Pritam has demonstrated that he knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. That is what true leaders should be.

I hope that the rest of the pap beginning with lhl will not just suck thumb and merely look the other way. Singapore is currently experiencing our worse recession since our independence and large numbers of our businesses and people are facing very challenging and uncertain times and any help from those who haves will be much needed and appreciated.

If such noble acts are done well by many more better off people in our society and over an extended period of time, our society will emerge not only stronger after C19 as one united people but we would also have sown the seeds for a truly more gentle and kinder society going forward.

Bravo Pritam Singh. Your charity will not be in vain because even the blinds can see, however, I am unsure about those naive, hard core and unthinking suckers.

Think.

    Bravo to Natural Aristocracy!

    “Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominions cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God. The world is a drama, staged in a dream… If people use the wealth bestowed by God for themselves alone or they hoard it, it would indeed be like treasuring a corpse. But if they were to share it with others, it thereby transforms into sacred food.”

    - Guru Nanak

    At this juncture,it is more meaningful to a SUSTAINABLE OPPO CAUSE that WP leadership consider to LEAD THE WAY TO THE FORMATION OF A CREDIBLE OPPOSITION WHICH CAN TAKE OVER AS GOVT instead of *slogging* for PAP N LEE AH LONG as THEIR ORDAINED OPPO LEE-der?

    There is more fruitfulness in leading A STRONG OPPO ALLIANCE than be the PAP’s ANOINTED ONE?

  • Warm cockles of my heart:

    As a pioneer I hope pritam has the health and strength for coming yrs of tough fight, beware Greeks bearing gifts,
    I wonder how our rulers have the strength and conscience to sleep peacefully at night,pritam gave out of his hard earned money,below the 500000 mark set by gct,
    The rulers earn millions and wether they donate silently or not they gave of their excess,

    Shame on our rulers,
    Pritam gave of himself not of his excess, spread the word thruout this island in mandarin English Tamil and malay

  • RICH HATE POOR:

    The Rich love their earthly wealth obsessively, hate the deadly Poor incessantly.

    You die your business. Who ask you to be lazy bums? You are mere liabilities in society!

    The Poor are being tested for the pathetic state they are in which no single soul would ever wish for.

    The Rich are also being tested! What have you done with the wealth that you have been hoarding all this while?

    Now that we are all sinking into a lurking Depression. Aren’t the Millionaires, the Billionaires and the Trillionaires putting their hearts out to chip in to help the poor?

    If a blind poor down on the corner is sincerely willing to part with his only dime just to rescue the poorer-than-him in his community, what are the filthy rich doing down there?

    Think. And think with your heart and mind.
    You still do not want to part with a miniscule part of your multitude of wealth?

    Just you wait for the just you’ll get from God Almighty?

    A Tormentous Catastrophe is in the waiting. Just when.

    Agree with you, valid points.

    If or when the courts against WP or Pritam and kenna no more AGRC for WP – then this one will be simple drama. Voters know, like previous, election losses can be gained back by the courts method.
    Now everytg, mayb all the 10 WP seats, depends on the upcoming courts or police decisions.

    Then lan lan bo bian lose LO position and allowance liao, did bo? Suay suay MP seat also gone then Aljunied go for a by-election since 50% of MPs bo liao.

  • Tremendous:

    The village chief and his merry men are selfish people. I have yet to see any freaking minister donate half of their salary for social causes like this oppo gentleman villager. All they knew how to do was to stash away their cash in the pockets, month after month. Then claim the high moral ground. The idiot infection rate of the village has dropped from 69% to 61%, and should drop further.

  • Uncomfortableword:

    The problem is the principle behind which the justification of extremely high renumeration for office holders is rooted on – temptation.

    The argument justifying a ramson payout to political and civil servants is to keep them honest which imply that they are corruptable.

    If men are all corruptable(made compliant/pliable) by money, giving them more money will even made them more corruptable(compliant or pliant).

    When you take the money, you are its servant – You serve the almighty economy. You have formed an intense love affair with the economy which is the source of wealth and power(root of all evil).

    We have watched how big businesses(rich people) bow to the communist dictator because of the pile of money/power/livelihood they are sitting on.

    They have been corrupted because they are indeed corruptable.

    Hence the rich man cannot enter the new kingdom envisioned from above.

    We are all ruled by the rich(they dictate our fate), isn’t that the problem?

  • opposition dude:

    This is what you call TRANSPARENCY by the opposition, something that the PAP can talk about but can never show for it.

    Put it down in black and white so people can remember it. Pritam knows how to play the game since he has been in parliament for almost a decade now. The increase is welcome but the willingness to use half of it to help the less well off is even better.

    Good going Pritam and WP!

  • PSF= PRITAM SINGH FOUNDATION:

    PSF = PRITAM SINGH FOUNDATION

    Should set up PRITAM SINGH FOUNDATION under the banner of SG UNITED as a gesture to unite Singaporeans, rich and poor, young and old, bourgeouise and prolitarians, prince and pauper; black, brown, yellow or white.

    An eye opener to all “Natural Aristocrats”.

  • Hidden Motive:

    The real intention to formally recognise Pritam Singh as the leader of the opposition, is to increase his mp allowance by a wide margin. The devil hope this will create discord, unfair share of public workload and finally disunity among the WP members.

    Smart Pritam Singh sees through the plot and quickly take action.

    Not only it backfired the pap, WP ‘s image and credibility has been brought to a higher level.

  • Protect Atas People:

    As I’ve said, Ah Loong will live to regret his decision to appoint Pritam as LO after the GE2020 results.

    Pritam will show Ah Loong how he has failed as a leader and how a good leader should be.

    This is just the beginning. Already with his pledge to donate 50% of his salary, Pritam is shaming not only Ah Loong but also all the greedy millionaire rotten PAPayas.

    Cunning Ah Loong schemingly planned to sabo Pritam and his WP. But what Ah Loong failed to realise is that Pritam and his WP are more than capable of coming up with alternative views in debates. WP is definitely up to the task. Without any information, WP could only ask questions. But now with Pritam being allowed to access to govt data, there’s nothing too difficult for them.

    Some more, PSP also has 2 members in parliament to lend voices. With Dr Tan behind the scene helping, pap days of using parliament as their wayang stage is numbered.

    unless pap clown is a serial forgetful liar, everyone must replay the recording of this pap clown telling everyone it is his job to abuse his time in office to FIX opposition.

  • @PAP ain’t d Solution

    My take is that it is easier to fix Pritam and claw Aljunied because it is a matter handled by the courts, so the party hands are all clean clean.

    Although there is no law that says lose 2 MPs from a GRC must have a by-election, but I am sure the party can twist and cook something up to have one.

    Without Pritam and Sylvia, the A team at WP, maybe will lose Aljunied lor, but then hor, the party should not forget that WP still has Nicole Seah, the girl with the strangely wonder ability to draw people to like her. So even if there is a by-election, the party may not be able to wrestle Aljunied away from WP if Nicole is fielded and in the end, the party may look worst in the eyes of the others. Like one reader here say, Sinkies are not stupid and have already seen through all the dirty tricks of the party, confirmed by the leaked audio of the cotton comes from sheep.

    As for Sengkang, I think the party won’t have eyes on the single lone billionaire MPs because losing one MP does not warrant a by-election, Court already say liao. So worst case scenario, Pritam and Auntie Sylvia kenna booted if WP cannot raise millions (which they can actually) to pay for the AHTC supposed losses.

    What do you think?

  • Dowager's Booby Trap:

    Smart Pritam saw through the Witch-Dowager’s booby trap.
    Money-power thrown unto opposition lap without being asked!
    It surprised many seniors who lived in the period when politicians were detained for 32 years without trial.
    Can a leopard spots ever be changed.
    Proven the Witch-Dowager is still pulling the strings.

    Pritam,in his new role, shud not allow himself to be *used*,as doing so may disadvantage the OPPO CAUSE.

    UNTIL THE PAP BEGINS AGAIN TO WORK HARD N HONESTLY FOR THE PEOPLE OF SG,WP MUST STAND ALERT.

    ELSE,this appointment may be detrimental to oppo sgs n common sgs at large,i am afraid.
    Look,when the PAP instituted the FT POLICYit was not concerned if sgs would lose their decent jobs.
    We were left to FEND FOR OURSELVES?!
    NO JOBLESS BENEFITS FOR sgs means PAP CAN COMFORTABLY N RECKLESLY CONTINUE TO DUMP MORE fake FTs here as the PAP need not worry about finding resources to ASSIST OUR JOBLESS???

    THEN,when PANDEMIC broke out,PAP LOOT OUR RESERVES IN THE NAME OF SAVING JOB$ BUT FOR WHOM?

    SO MANY FTs in TLCs n MNCs getting HIGH SALARIES N PROTECTING THEIR JOBS MEANS DOING IT AT SGS’ EXPENSE ,PARTICULARLY, WHEN G IS GIVING JOBLESS SGS A PALTRY $600 ONCE-OFF GRANT WITH THE PROMISE TO UP GST SOON?

    ROBBING SGS TO PROTECT FOREIGNERS IS SIMPLY WRONG!

  • Dun Bluff Mi U Tink I 2pid?:

    Hammer Party is in precarious position.

    LTK, SL, PS outcome still not sure. Newly minted RK in Sengkang might be fixed.

    As what Pinky said, he will spend his time fixing the Oppos than fixing the economy which is in recession now.

    Lets see what he will do now and in this 5 years.

    Good luck Sinkies. We will be left behind by the million-dollar natural aristocracy. You die your problem.

  • No,no no psimon you r wrong:

    Pap ministers would scorn how sptupid the oppostion leader is but later with the crisis leaker he will probly said cheap tactic forgetting that pap has done worst if that is cheap skate for every election n Singaporeans just swiop it up n say pap is good. But pritam case is persnal. He did it all by himself as in New Zealand, a university Vice chancellor n her academic staff did the same for their students in need during the pandemic BUT pap ownself give ownself as they have been doing for 5 decades intensifying esp after the ownself xxxx own pself millions when RI sSW Peanut Goh now a quitter, succumed for reasons he n his circle know, to lky to is to be the seat warmer while his stiffer spine deputy refused such humiliation n was exiled to a position with respectability swept under the carpet by the nepotic orrible man ( Remembering poor kid Amo whose life is completely destroyed by the evil he left behind nnow going agpfter) . Now the Peanut was garbaged true n proper, unceremoniously fortunately not adding to the wound woith celebration with pap peeing n pooing all over.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Two reasons why any PAP’s MP or Ministers would give out part of their salary; firstly they already said they are not paid enough. Secondly if one of them did it, the rest of the MPs or Ministers would [email protected] him/her off.

    Always remember PAP’s MPs and Ministers are in for wealth, power, fame and impressive resume. Period, nothing else!! “Serving the people” is only their song title.
