Vote out those who support PAP’s absurd stupidity

I believe Louis Ng is one of those decent guys who honestly care for others, be they humans or non-humans.

We at publichouse interviewed him some years ago (2012, I think) when he was in charge at ACRES. His passion and love for animals was obvious.

And since becoming MP, he has raised many issues across the spectrum. From single mothers to animal rights, from cigarette smoke in homes to climate change. And yes, even hawkers.

I therefore have nothing against the guy, and am upset that he is being investigated for something as innocent as trying to help others.

The pandemic has made life difficult for many, especially those who depend on human traffic for business. Hawkers are one of these people.

Louis was trying to bring some attention to this, and went out and took some photo to help publicise their plight. Just a kind man trying to do a kind deed.

But our laws are sometimes unkind to those who genuinely feel strongly about an issue.

And instead of abiding by the spirit behind the law, they often enforce the law to the very last letter of it.

In other words, when you enforce the law technically, you sometimes end up making an ass of the law.

Like in 1997, when the previous AG explained away how being inside a polling station was not an offence, but being outside of it, is – and by this stroke of technical genius, a group of PAP ministers escaped prosecution.

But for others, the law is applied down to the last letter.

Activists in Singapore, and bloggers too, have bore the brunt of this stupidity. Which is why, activists and others have been hauled up for equally innocent Facebook postings, or indoor chat sessions, or now, holding up mere pieces of paper in public and taking photos of it.

Maybe it takes one of their own to fall into this dragnet for them to see the absurdity of it all.

I hope they do not charge Louis, as a sign that they have finally understood the idiocy of it all – to punish someone for holding up a piece of paper.

But the PAP being what it is, I do not hold my breath.

To me, they have been absurd for a long time.

And one of their own getting in trouble does not necessarily mean they will see the truth.

I’ve long given up trying to persuade the PAP or the govt, and this post is not meant as a plea or feedback. I’m not interested in giving the PAP or the govt feedback anymore. (After POFMA, it is obvious giving feedback is a waste of time.)

Instead, I would like to urge Singaporeans to help nurture an alternative govt-in-waiting, if we want our country to truly be first world.

I urge you to vote out more PAP MPs, and vote in more good people from the opposition.

We need to start now, and rid our country of a one-party reign which has today brought us to this stupid place of hauling people up for doing good deeds.

Let us vote out those who support such stupidity.

  • WAKEUP:

    THE 61% who constantly give almost absolute power to the PAP regime is also
    indirectly responsible for the repressive laws,powers that PAP gagmt used to suppress, and imprisoned, and harass social activists,oppositions,anyone who is very critical of them.
    WHY???
    U GIVE THEM ALMOST ALL THE SEATS IN PARLIAMENT TO PAP,U SHOULD GIVE SOME 30% OF PARLIAMENT SEATS TO OPPOSITIONS AS CHECK AND BALANCE AND FOR OPPOSITIONS TO PERFORM THEIR ROLES FOR THE COUNTRY, AND TO PREVENT PAP MISUSES OF POWER AND FINANCES AS THERE WERE MANY FINANCIAL ABUSES OVER THE YRS.
    As proverb says “Absolute power corrupt” is timeless wisdom
    but the 61% dont have a mind of their own , also indirectly cause great hardships to their children,grandchildren generation as this PAP gagmt hell bent
    on bringing cheap labours from abroad, and many with fake certificates,diplomas from India and other third world countries where one can easily bought certificates,diplomas.
    That why our population dropped drastically over the yrs as many earn salary that have been suppressed due to huge influx of foreign labours.
    THERE IS NO ONE WHO CAN ABSOLUTELY RESTRAIN PAP FROM ABUSES,AS THEY ARE TOO POWERFUL….AS A RESULT OF U GIVING THEM TOO MUCH POWER!!!

    The ruling elites in Sinkapor have very successfully succeeded in retardising Sinkaporeans. Even in the face of much adversity brought about by the failed policies of the elites, the electorate continue to accept nonsense. There is no hope in Sinkapor. Sinkaporeans are de-evolving from humans to apes. In future, Sinkapor will be known as the planet of apes.

    The real issue here is not about showing smiley face poster, it’s what lhl is doing anything to anybody who offence him.

    Lhl can not sue his own siblings so he just sue others as replacement.

    Anything that makes lhl angry, he can get you even if you accidentally step on an ant.

    This is all because he be lives he has total absolute power.

    CONVICTION OF SDP 5 is mind-boggling for me to comprehend. The justification “at law” was allegedly this simple – a few people walking in the same direction on a public street must have the same mindset of intent – THAT IS WHAT THE “LEGISLATIVE INTENT” SEEKS TO DEFEAT – another brilliance of technical twist of law interpretation.

    I HAVE COMPELLING APPREHENSION THAT THE LAW WAS WRONGLY APPLIED. Recently Shanmu even acknowledge that judges are not divine or superlative of genius infallability (i.e. they made mistakes too like Parti Liyani ignominy)

    My only problem with that SDP 5 conviction is this simple also – MY HEAD IS SITTING ON MY SHOULDER and NOBODY ELSE, how does the other 4 walking in the same direction or the presiding judge AS AN EXAMPLE KNOWS WHAT EXIST in my thinking or thoughtless mind then or the other 4 persons ( be that other 4 parties are my friends/spouse and family members or total strangers etc etc) know WHAT OR HOW I THINK to then be ALL CONVICTED OF ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY LAW?

    IS THIS NOT FANTASYLAND LAW?

    That Public Order Act law is flawed legislation of its intent to keep public peace. How can a man/woman OR A COUPLE OR FAMILY walking his/pet pet ever going to keep “public peace” when his/her pet poo or bark at babies in public park to terrify them?

    IS THIS WINDY HAPPY CONTRADICTION STILL INSUFFICIENT PROOF or at least add to public apprehension that the Public Order Act is politically-motivated of its construct and/or selective targeting?

    It is now turned into farcical proportion in the eyes of law-abiding peasants.

    Or is it NOT still?

    I stand corrected.

  • Harder Truths:

    I don’t really know or care about how good or bad this guy is when he’s at home. He’s never been a hawker, never seen or experienced hard times (look at his profile). Has never spoken up for the people against FT or the real issues. Married to Ang Moh (is not local good enough? – of course not)

    We all know most hawkers are FT anyway – so who is he trying to kid?

    The fact is he is a part of the regime doing his wayang for them and for himself. No one joins the regime to serve $G, only to serve themselves.

    Just look at all these other useless clowns pretending to do good. have you seen any improvement?

    https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/singapore/just-kill-off-gpcs-theyre-no-longer-relevant-today/ar-BB1eg9Mp?ocid=ientp

    Next time you see all this wayang and cheat-beating just look at their pay and privileges and ask yourself if you are really that stupid to believe them.

  • What same standard:

    Did MP Louis Ng highlight anything wrong with the arrest and charge of Jovolan Wham when he similarly also held up a placard ?
    If no, he must also be subject to the same set of laws in order to be seen as fair and consistent.

    Vote out those MPs who keep quiet when stupid things happen to ordinary folks. They have failed to properly represent you in parliament.

  • Remember compliant bureaucracy:

    Surely Singaporeans remember Lee HY/WL’s unchallenged in a law Court on their allegation of ccmpliant bureaucracy.

    Remember tie rediculous papic definition of accountability iby a minister claiming the right their right of zero accountability.

    Remember the papic adding the criteria of career success in conflict of interests in pubic appointments suggest ping pap has the right to rewrite the law anytime anyway that would suit them. If this is not TELlING Singaporeans that they r above the laws and should be treated differently whenever and whatever they do even against the laws n Constitution.

    Remember how pap minister said on the right of not disclosing Ho Ching actual salary while refuting what the Taiwanese media reported by asserting that the owner, Govt of Singapore, is a private. If it is private who then own privately the Govt of Singapore. Could the minister elaborate how could the Govt be privateif it is is elected by the people to work for the interests n benefits of the people. Does the minister implies that Govt of Singapore is not working for the benefits n interests of Singaporeans but for some corporate individual? Could he tell Singaporeans who r these private individuals.

    As long as the PAP thinks as illustrated by what they have said on issues raised by Singaporeans, it is time for pap to tell the world their political platform n not adulterating democracy n the citizenry would decide n not fool by the cons n fakes.

    Law must not be said to be just. It has to be perceived to be just.

    If law is effected based on preference then we have a huge problem.

    IF NOT, I have compelling apprehension the public mind will think it is the devilish work of Briginshaw vs Briginsaw law at work again.

    http://www5.austlii.edu.au/au/journals/MelbULawRw/2003/13.html

    In that notorious 1938 LANDMARK Australian High Court decision, the judge ruled in favor of the divorced wife NOT BECAUSE OF THE LAW EVIDENCE MERIT IN THE CASE BUT SIMPLY THAT SHE IS A WOMAN – her “reputation” as a married woman MUST BE PROTECTED.

    By the same logic TODAY, if someone sue the Australian govt on any matter, the govt must also WIN because it must be protected NO MATTER WHAT WRONG WAS DONE simply because the defendant is the Australian govt???

    Judges in Australian courts now give the Briginshaw vs Briginshaw law precedent the TWO MIDDLE FINGERS.

    Hence the Loretta D Plevitz’s articulation of “pointing the wavering finger” of inequity when law treats the accused/defendant DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE OF WHO HE/SHE IS OR HIS/HER STATUS in society.
