Post-Election 2020Post-Election 2020 I read with much concern, of latest developments surrounding the Court cases of political dissidents/Opposition MPs and can’t help but recall the words of the younger Lee siblings alleging “abuse” of various State organs, with the subsequent passionate Parliamentary speech by MP Sylvia Lim to “protect our Institutions...

I have been diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsyI have been diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy It is a rather nasty brain disease which starts with a Parkinson’s-like illness that slows physical movements, impairs fast eye movements and balance, resulting in a tendency to fall. This is followed by difficulty swallowing, choking aspiration, pneumonia and death – for the fortunate. Further progression of the...

DBS Bank and Western Union a freaking jokeDBS Bank and Western Union a freaking joke As a former small businessman from the “Merdeka” Generation, I find that the stupidity of some businesses or its staff are simply beyond comprehension. I have a son who is getting married next month to a PRC girl in a small city in China. As I am already old and mobility is an issue, I am physically unable to attend...

Was there a together 10 million population plan?Was there a together 10 million population plan? Was there a together 10 million Plan? Er... Heng Swee Kiat said there was no such plan. Vivian Balakrishnan accused the SDP of sprouting falsehoods in their 4Y 1N election campaign. Now that the heat of electioneering is doused, let us calmly attempt to understand the significance of the 10 million figure and its impact...

Li ShengWu on the court's judgement against himLi ShengWu on the court's judgement against him Apparently the court has rendered judgement on my case today, and fined me $15,000 for a comment made to my friends on Facebook. I disagree with the judgement, and worry that it will reinforce the PAP's tendency to suppress ordinary political speech. In response to three words in a private Facebook post, the government...

Historian Michael Barr reflects on GE2020 - 'PAP govt is in denial'Historian Michael Barr reflects on GE2020 - 'PAP govt is... The People’s Action Party (PAP) government of Singapore has suffered its worst ever election result, but Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has suggested merely that the result was “not as strong an endorsement as hoped”. Individual swings against the ruling party of up to 27 per cent and typically 6–15 per cent...

WP’s Yee Jenn Jong rebuts Lawrence WongWP’s Yee Jenn Jong rebuts Lawrence Wong With due respect to Minister Lawrence Wong, I do not think this 'desire for diverse voices, checks and balances' is something new that will cause PAP's vote share to be unlikely to exceed 65% in future. A blank cheque was given to the PAP in 1968 when the Barisan Socialis boycotted the GE. That allowed the PAP to cement...

Why I Voted Against PAP at Ang Mo Kio GRCWhy I Voted Against PAP at Ang Mo Kio GRC I read the article "I trusted PAP for far too long" and "I am Sengkang voter", I totally agree with their observations. I said the same thing about two decades ago to all my friends and relatives, few people agreed with me and even said I am hardcore opposition. Today, I am proven right, those who did not agree with...

Lawrence Wong should stop acting like the grand saga of PAPLawrence Wong should stop acting like the grand saga of PAP 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...

GE2020 shows us that we need less 'Indian Chief' opposition parties aroundGE2020 shows us that we need less 'Indian Chief' opposition... * Take Note Only Contested Seats are Counted. Since 2011 all seats have been contested. But from 2006 and prior, only the contested seats determined the % of votes. So if the Reform Party and Red Dot United did not run, and Jurong, AMK and Radin Mas were walkovers, the PAP mandate would only be 58.7% It would be...

More people than pap was expecting voted for the opposition. Yes, most of us would agree there are many things wrong with pap. There are different reasons why people voted for the opposition and they can be grouped...
