Purging Unparliamentary Language

I am glad that Vivian Balakrishnan has apologised to Leong Mun Wai for his disparaging comments about the latter in parliament yesterday.

But the rules of the game require the apology to be tendered in Parliament,where the disparaging remarks were made, and not through a telephone call or on Facebook.

At the next session of Parliament,the Speaker should point out the unparliamentary language used and give a little admonition to the offending Member,and also exhort other Members of Parliament to be civil in their conduct and language during Parliamentary sessions.What we witnessed in Parliament yesterday was far from the civility required by convention.

Next, the Speaker should invite the offending Member to make a statement withdrawing his offending remarks and to make an unreserved apology to the Member who was the target of his offending words.

Let’s see if the rules of the game are adhered to in the next sitting of Parliament.

 

Lim Tean

  • what a joke!!:

    This clown just never learned his lesson at all!!
    A few years back, when Parliament was debating about the lowest income group, a member suggested to increase the allowance of such group. After a meagre increase of about $20 or there about, he mocked the group, commenting where they would like to have their meals, be it in restaurants, food courts or hawker centres!!!Such is the mentality of this clown, no empathy at all for his fellow disadvantaged human beings!!His true colour revealed again in the latest Parliament sitting!!
    Is he even fit to be a minister!!!??

    pap says, all schools are good schools.

    alas. according to pap bala, who said on Sep 14 2021 in parleeement, RI is a lousy school.

    we are from not from RI but from a good school which is a neighbourhood school classed as a good school by pap (pap, repeat, says every school except RI is a good school).

    and we agree with pap bala that RI is a lousy school. RI produced pap liar lky. no wonder RI is a lousy school.

    If a thief or murderer commits a crime which he believes NO ONE knows and seen it, but only to be found out later, would he gets a pardon from crime enforcers, and be told just apologize would suffice?

    And wouldn’t VB apologise if HE WASN’T been EXPOSED?

    Looks like a trade agreement is also known as a RACE agreement

    Shame think of the damage you do to the ENGLISH language……….and lauwong……….did you go to RI?

    In any case,, Did shame solve the problem if jobless PMETs…..what about lauwong………..and what was the east coast plan who cocked up the whole agreement.

  • Talking cock in pariahment:

    Such a bad character, doesn’t matter which school he came from. No wonder Singapore is not progressing as a peaceful nation. Not only did he insulted the person, he also insulted the school as well. He should apologise to the school, all it’s students and then resign. We don’t need such a Minister for Foreign Affairs.

    If someone write something on his private facebook group can be sued, then his private talk which is broadcasted out is also a very serious matter.

    This gynae politician remained a dishourable PAP politician even when he apologized, he still disrespect Leong on records.

    Lets NOT forget HE IS THE PERSON who OVERSPENT tax payers MONEY by the 100s of MILLIONS of dollars, without even Loong cared to punish him.

    The NO BLAME CULTURE institutionalised by PAP is grossly grossly corrupted act.

    So basically if you were to call any PAP a straight shooting son of a gun you would be DEMANDED (sound familiar) to apologise right?

    Because we all know PAP has double standards after all. When Sylvia Lim brought up test balloons she was DEMANDED to apologise and retract her statements, no phone call required.

    And when the speaker of parliament belongs to the ruling party it just makes for good comedy does it not? Go tell this to other dmocratic countries and watch them ROTFLTAO!

    Thats why i have always say on TRE that *BOOK-SMART* is not the same as SIMPLE WISDOM.
    With ARROGANCE comes FOOLISHNESS and we,humbler sgs,are noticing more and more of such UNREFINED SCHOLARS/ PRESIDENT SCHOLARS.
    THERE IS NO GRACIOUSNESS in THEM.
    Yet,THEY TALK DOWN ON sgs calling us UNGRACIOUS,RACIST N XENOPHOBIC.
    How so?
    Is adamant reluctance to have NON-chinese SEC GEN,and therefore likely PM,NOT racist?

    Since when are sgs XENOPHOBIC?
    Do you see Ang Moh FTs and other aliens snubbing at sgs or the other way round?

    I strongly URGE THE GAHMEN N PAP MPs to ASK NEW FTs TO BE RESPECTFUL N NOT BE XENOPHOBIC TOWARDS their SG-HOSTS instead!!!This can be done at INTEGRATION PARTIE$.

    NEVER SHOW DISRESPECT TO YOUR CITIZENS the way PAP MPs n MINISTERS DO BY THEIR VERY WORDS ( ACCUSATIONS,BLAMES,NAME CALLING) AND ACTIONS(like giving $600 to nation-builders while handing thousands to FTs).

    Yes,DR VB MUST APOLOGISE IN PARLIAMENT.
    THE SPEAKER MUST DEMAND DR VB TO DO SO PUBLICLY IN CLEAR TERMS,AUDIBLY!

    THANK GOD,some samaritans picked the *NOISES* UP.

    HEAVEN IS FAIR N JUST.

    Well said bro. Agree.

    Mr Leong Mun Wai does not have data in hand. All he has is what pap Ljs and pap Cbs disseminated via pap states times and such.

    We don’t see lapses. We only see a decent fellow citizen trying his best, given the unlevel field, to ask for accountability from pap.

    We believe in God. We say, for 100% certainty, pap can lie but not do so forever. Like pap lky, these pap liars shall account for their bad deeds sooner or later. We think within 3 years after GE2024 pap folks shall go to jail, well, many of them.

    Don’t we see pap snakemugam and pap bala showing pap racist colors against non pap race in parleeement?

    They have used demeaning words like “dafts” and “idiots” on the people. This time it is “illiterate” on an Opposition Member in Parliament. It just shows how highly they think of themselves. As an aside, in the past ACS boys were generally thought (rightly or wrongly) to be smug or snobbish because many of them come from rich, well-connected English-speaking families. RI boys pride themselves as elite students because they all performed very well on the PSLE to get in. Both these schools competed to be at the top. Perhaps, we are still seeing characteristics of the old traits.

    success due to privilege is NOTHING.

    if your papa is lky, what is the big deal to be given a scholarship? due to papa lky, car chauffeured and revise A level 10-year series in aircond room, with one-one private tuition. We like lky 2nd son. we say this only as a fact. not to demean him. this lky 2nd son, did NOT get straight As in A levels. He got the President Scholarship. out came the lky machinery to justify why no need, from then onwards, straight As for President Scholarship.

    there are these scholars, who after school help their papa kway teow stall in market, go everywhere by leg, or if can afford, by bus, no need 10-year series, in crowded 3 room HDB rental unit, and can still outdo the lky children, these are then the truly smarter. alas. many of such forgot their roots. they started work in pap regime. became tainted by the pap rot. and thereafter, became no different from pap snakemugam pap bala and such.
