Singaporeans are ‘not ready’ for a non-Chinese leader?

Tharman Shanmugaratnam

Highest scoring GRC: Jurong, led by NON-CHINESE Tharman Shanmugaratnam, 74.61%. (Tharman’s team has consistently scored among the top 3 the last few GEs, at times scoring even better than the Chinese PM-led GRC, as it did in GE 2020.)

Best Scoring Opposition Constituency: Aljunied, led by Workers’ Party’s NON-CHINESE Pritam Singh, 59.95%. NOTE: 3 of the 5 WP GRC candidates are NON-CHINESE.

Best Performing opposition party: Workers’ Party, led by NON-CHINESE.

Workers’ Party scores higher than PAP in constituencies the WP contested in (against the PAP). WP led by NON-Chinese, PAP led by Chinese.

In the top 6 scoring PAP GRCs in the 2020 GE, 3 of them – including the highest-scoring GRC in the whole GE itself – were led by NON-CHINESE. (*Asterisked)

Jurong: 74.61*
Ang Mo Ki0: 71.91
Sembawang: 67.29
Bishan: 67.23
Tampines: 66.41*
Holland Bukit Timah: 66.36*

Can we put to rest this nonsense that Singaporeans are “not ready” for a non-Chinese leader?

  • Andrew is Spot On!:

    Andrew is right!

    Can an Indian be classified as a Malay in sg?

    Then, can an Indian be classified as Chinese sg PM?

    English is not oral masturbation. Its fun.

  • Boh Kia See:

    Andrew has provided us with the evidence that Singaporeans are ready for a capable leader regardless of race.

    The PAP, after so many years have yet to produce a single shred of evidence for their proposition. It is simply false and inherently racist in their attitude.

    Traditionally, Singaporeans in general are not racists. They are more on the lookout for leadership skills and a good heart for the future of the country and its citizens.

    This idea that it is up to the people to decide is also problematic. The PAP’s executive committee is stacked with Chinese so how do the people have a chance to decide? Eventually, the peoples’ decision will be expressed in the removal of the PAP, which is seen as a Chinese party for a party that is more representative of the Singaporean mix.

    In history, we had Mr David Marshall as our Chief Minister. So there is clear evidence that Singaporeans are colour blind when it comes to race.

    The sooner PAP drops this racist charade the better for Singapore.

    ———————————————————————
    Actually the moment these words were uttered by the “great, wise old man”, we, the ordinary Chinese never agree to this stupid claim. But many Singaporeans like to parrot this claim all because it was uttered by the Old Idiot. Like I said before, the stupid mentality “If LKY said so then it must be true.”

    It’s because of this stupid claim that many times, the majority race are being accused of being racist.

    Chinese auntie didn’t smile at you, racist!
    Chinese girl still prefer Chinese boyfriend, racist!
    Chinese firms looking for Mandarin-speaking candidate, racist!

    Singapore not ready for non-Chinese PM? Only the PAP ministers had been repeating this shit because “LKY said so what!”

  • to be be ready for anything:

    //It’s because of this stupid claim that many times, the majority race are being accused of being racist.//

    maybe once daft sinkies (whether from majority or minority ??) get used and adapt to the ‘messy’ chat-ba-lang competition / behaviors and start to learn to be equally messy with all this chat-ba-lang culture from the overwhelming number of FTs in our midst, daft sinkies will start to be be ready for anything ???

  • Dear Andrew:

    I do not trust PAP, least of all Tharman.
    During his term as DPM, the huge deluge of FTs flows into Sg.
    It continues, go to Raffles Place, Changi business park, visit your friend, if you have any there, at Melville Park Condo, or condo in Tanjong Rhu. Mostly Singaporeans living there? Maybe they are like JPM Ramesh, a converted Singaporean, or married to a Singaporean.
    Official stats say most condo are bought by Singaporeans? Really? New condo or resale,
    Stats stats lies.
    Tharman before he stepped down as DPM, he went to India and proclaimed to the effect it did not make sense for Sg to have too many FTs.
    Just like DPM HSK went to REDAS anniversary dinner and “preached” to the powerful and influential real estates companies and owners.
    Can we trust these people?
    Indian population has increased from 6% to 9%, maybe even more if you count in the newly converted Singaporeans and PRs relatives staying here to “look after” the kids and work pass holders.
    Can you trust Tharman?

    I think Sg has a fair share of non-Chinese ministers and senior civil servants.

    If Tharman was the PM, would the crony capitalist companies here bail out even more bankrupt banks and companies in India.

    As a senior minister, did he have a hand in bailing out zombie companies and GLCs at the expense of taxpayers?

    Companies are collecting hand outs in whatever names, pay their ceos fat salary and bonus, give out generous bonus, do share buyback, and even retrench workers.

    50,000 created by our GREAT SUPREME leaders? what type of jobs? In this case, our unemployment should be less than 1%. It is still being massaged to be around 3-4%. Many unemployed Singaporeans are not included in the stats for whatever reason.

  • Singaporeans die die ...:

    PAP CLOSE DOWN:
    I think the question is :”are we ready for an ex foreigner to be leader?”

    … will vote for PAP whoever PAP chooses its PM for Singapore.

    Did it not select an Indian Malay to be the Malay President?

    And Singaporeans still voted PAP in.

  • It shouldn’t be race, its patr:

    It shouldn’t be racial critiperia but the mentality of patroitism, dedication, honesty, integrity, justice not greed, lies, arrogance … or in short a man with all human valoes in place matters be it be indian chinese or malay. One who have self interests, greed, arrogance, excuses n pretension, the shit or scumbag should be removed be IT be XpChinese, Malay or Indians. If Malay or indians in even chinese feels that pap is racism based or whatever be greed, super arrogance or white mentality that hurts way to good nation building n health then IT should pull out of the party like Tan Cheng Bok and set up their multiracial parties. This will address the scenario in the interest of the nation n not drive the nation to racism. Anyone who keep on talking Tarman is marginalized becos he is indian then tarman if he is that good n popular should leave n set up his own party n starts from that on a non racial playform! Tarman if u r reading, do u agree? Tell your supporter never never raise the issue of race. The presidential matter is the badd ove in trumpic direction. Every Man P should try to get rid of that clause n let the best man with dignity, confidence, integrity n patrotic dedication wins and not on racial terms! Pesudent elected on that premise should have the dignity to turn it down n let the best patroit win be it be malay, indian chinese or erasin! This should be a Singapore dont the road into the future!

    Tech: Compared to other mods who normally would delete such an unreadable comment, I am more patient, so I am going to say this just once. PLEASE post readable and punctuated comments because the chances of them being deleted are very very very high. Thank you.

  • Racism shouldn’t be way:

    So what if tharman becomes PM? Does it mean he should not only be workingbinhis own n pap interets but also for the indians n not the entire coitizenry. That is real stupid. Tharman n other ministers should tell their racist supporters to shut up n work for a multiracial goal. If pap is racist, leave n form a more genuine multibracial party with justice in mind n getting the best persons on the job able to resists arrogance, greed and racial inclination but a service to the cituzens n nation before personal n party and to honour people with dignity, integrity n ACCOUNTABILITY not what PAP Chun Chan, Indranee n lawrence wong who have exhibit undesirable political qualties. Compliancy is road t death of the nation!

  • Realistically:

    I hv said b4 that Tharman, altho much better than the emperor without clothes, CANNOT be the next PM…………..and as someone has noted he, as Fnance Minister and a senior Cabinet Minister failed to prevent the lacklustre GLCs from being bailed out.

    The emperor without clothes policy to which Tharman subscribes to is that the Govt’s decision on policies is shared by ALL Cabinet Ministers and others holding office.

    I believe there is at least one other CHINESE guy better the rest of sinkies who could have done much much better than Tharman ……..and he WAS also then selected to be a PAP candidate but chose to withdraw because there were some supporters of LKY who feared that he would hv overshadowed the emperor without clothes.

    The BANKRUPT system of the emperor without clothes has taken a HUGE toll on SINKaPOOR & Sinkies with the need to spend S$100 billion for his failed COVID-19 pandemic and other serious setbacks as reflected in Chan Chun Sing’s sombre message towards the end of last year………..

    Andrew Loh, as usual, betrays his lack of critical thinking skill with his wholesome imbibing of the wayang-party’s s*ake oil spiel.

    @ Andrew Loh

    >>Best Scoring Opposition Constituency: Aljunied, led by Workers’ Party’s NON-CHINESE Pritam Singh, 59.95%. NOTE: 3 of the 5 WP GRC candidates are NON-CHINESE.<<

    Andrew Loh and those who agree with him should just view Pritam Singh's interview by Sumiko Tan………….Pritam Singh is NOT an oppo let alone be anointed as the leader of the opposiiton…………for his wayang IN SUPPORT of the emperor without clothes………….Andrew Loh is just, if not more, PATHETIC than he has taken himself for with his spurious effort to sell the wayang-party brand………..to the DETRIMENT of SINKaPOOR and sinkies.

  • Realistically:

    As some sinkies said b4, they would hv voted for a donkey instead of the PAPies at a GE…………..so much for Tharman getting the highest % votes and that the Aljunied GRC has a majority of non-Chinese on its MP slate…………..which of course a simpleton like Andrew Loh would hv failed to remember………………….the 2020 GE was a swing away from the emperor without clothes, rather than a vote for the so-called oppos………even Chee Soon Juan had managed to increase his vote share at the 2020 GE compared to his vote share in the BB By-election which he should have won if he had the credibility and untarnished as a “CONGENITAL LIAR and CHEAT”

    You mistaken what I meant. Of course I know of a lot of Chinese girls marrying Indian husbands. Some of my Indian friends have Chinese wives also. What I meant is when a Chinese girl says she prefers a Chinese boyfriend, she can also be accused of being racist.

  • Don’t be emotional:

    If you are too kind to others, will others be the same?

    Yes, we want to be fair to everyone, every race, but look at the big picture and don’t let emotions run over you.

    Singaporean are too kind to FTs, then FTs take advantage of you play you out.
