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...

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...

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...

Since 2011 all seats have been contested. But from 2006 and prior, only the contested seats determined the % of votes.

Time to get rid of GRCs

Time to get rid of GRCs

It is an anomaly. Life can produce unexpected and spectacular results. The PAP created the GRC system to preserve their hold on power. They think that they will win all the GRCs with strong ministers and allow the opposition parties to win a few SMCs. But GE2020 produced an unexpected result. 9 seats were lost to the opposition...

PM Lee dreaded the prospect of losing 10 or more seats to the opposition – now that it has happened, what’s his game plan?

The Workers’ Party now has 10 seats in Parliament – a scenario that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong once said he needed to be wary of. Back in 2006, PM Lee spoke about how the opposition’s job was “to make life miserable” for him and if there were 10 or more of them in Parliament, he would have to spend time “thinking...
