13 PAP MPs were absent during FICA vote

This morning I posted that 7 NMPs were absent from the FICA vote yesterday in parliament. I stand corrected.

It has come to my knowledge that in fact only 2 NMPs were absent. 5 NMPs voted together with 70 other PAP MPs in favour of the Bill whilst 2 abstained.

But what is very notable is that 13 PAP MPs were absent!

I understand that Gan Kim Yong was probably in isolation and Grace Fu and Vivian Balakrishnan were serving SHN. Hazel Poa from PSP was unwell because of Dengue.

But why were PAP bigwigs such as Teo Chee Hean, Tharman, Edwin Tong and Desmond Lee not present when voting took place????

Did they not want to support the Bill and therefore chose to stay away?

I think it is imperative that the PAP answers this question! It has important ramifications for Singapore and I dare say most Singaporeans would be very eager to know the answer!

  • Harder Truths:

    Does not mean anything. They are trying to pass the blame on to others pretending they do not want to vote. They want their cake and eat it. So when next time they can enjoy the benefits of pappy rule and their large paycheck but can also say “see – I did not vote”.

    I have more disgust for people like them than the remainder who stayed and voted. At least they had some balls. These 13 are the ones who are the sneakiest and the biggest backstabbers.

    I say liao, C19 virus no scared sue till pants drop one, don’t care if victim wears white or black or if its an aristocrat or peasant. Anyone within biteable distance will bite one.

    Hope Gan is fully vaccinated and has no underlying conditions, else for his age, very dangerous and can up lorry one.

    Recover quick quick Gan, year-end bonus cumming your way.

    On a related note, with cases shooting past 3000 daily and still climbing towards the 10,000 mark (according to some experts on CCTV), in no time, almost all on Sinkieland will be infected, no place to hide one.

    Then hor, half of our good 3rd-gen millisters are oldies but goodies, then most got underlying conditions one, then how? Dangerous rite?

    Maybe all those 3rd-gen millisters should apply long leave and go China to sit out the C19 breakout in Sinkieland?

    What do you think?

    They could have done better by voting “NO” in absentia if they were indeed against the bill to make their position clear to the people.

    They got the numbers.
    Even 30 not there, everything still passed.

    I believe lhl & all the PAP ministers wanted to be somewhere else for such meaningless exercise.

    Half of the PAPs can be absent and the law would still be passed.
    PAP vs Alternative Parties..
    how can the oppos win?
    Still the PAPs hurriedly passed the law through.
    Makes me wonder what theyre up to..
    Soon maybe no more GEs too.
    Just an eternal ruler like CHINA ,PRC.

    What is the big deal that 13 PAP MPs were absent? For the Kelong President Election, all MPs and voters were rendered absent – so just need one vote… and a henchwoman willing to move into the Istana.

    I think the emperor has no problem with some of their white monkeys to be absent during voting bcos I think they believe that their white monkeys are more than the opposition members. And they were confident of winning the vote counts for the new law. That is y we must have more opposition members, at least close to 50%, otherwise no chance of overturning the new unfavourable laws to be implemented. That is how the political games are being played here. Winners take all and losers got to try and try their luck again !

    I oso got say long time ago that the Sars-CoV-2 virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic does NOT wait till the next GE in 2024 to mutate………….it has been doing so from the very beginning and on-going in its mutation.

    Back to FICA: it is AGAINST the Rule of Law, which has been described by Sundaresh Menon CJ himself as the “BEDROCK” of SINKaPOOR’s development and progress since 1965.

    As I hv stated in my letter debunking MHA’s rationale and the pro-regime commentary to the 160th ranked ST and quoting former CJ Chan Sek Keong, ““The ‘rule of law’ is an integral part of the Constitution as much as the Constitution establishes the ‘rule of law’”.

    The FICA law just confirms that SINKaPOOR is just a dictatorship

  • I think they preparing the most powerful millister to take over the PMship in case the LEEder up the lorry when he kenna bitten. We all know the current LEEder has cancer, a cery serioua underlying condition.

    If I may say, I think it may not be a bad move as the millister has that iron and balls in him to make the hard decisions, while the current LEEder is too very ‘soft’ and dare not touch his kakilang.

    What do you think?

  • LEEs betrayed Singapore:

    LEE KAYU SET A VERY BAD EXAMPLE for future PAP leaders. It was MONKEY SEE,MONKEY DO.

    LEE KAYU in his later years was absent from parliament most of the times. He could hardly even walk and stayed at home sleeping. He was in a wheelchair and DID NOT ATTEND met the people session but was still MP for Tanjong Pagar. Till the day he died he was MP for Tanjong Pagar. He was drawing an MP pay even though he was senile.

    When his wife had a stroke in UK during an UNOFFICIAL VISIT the English refused to give his wife an was ANY SPECIAL TREATMENT,he had a SIA plane fly him and wife to Singapore on tax payers account.

    He did not even visit his colleague and one of the founding members of PAP Rajaratnum. After Raja retired from from politics never once did he visit him. Raja was just like a tool for him, use and throw. Lee Kayu was a BACKSTABBER TOO and claimed credit for things done by others.

    Lee Kayu might be A GOOD STATESMAN but HE WAS A HORRIBLE HUMAN BEING. This BASTARD DESTROYED NUMEROUS FAMILIES. He was DISHONOURABLE MAN AND SO HIS SON IS ALSO A DISHONOURABLE SON.

    >>…. while the current LEEder is too very ‘soft’ and dare not touch his kakillang<<
    I disagree………why do U & other TRE readers think the rationale for me calling him the emperor without clothes? For the simple reason that, even though he had been described as a “WRANGLER” from the prestigious Cambridge U, he and his wife Ho Ching, do NOT have the expertise, education, and knowledge about good governance and that they, like the wayang-party MPs/MPs-wanna-be/IBs/members and other so called oppos like Chee Soon Juan, Lim Tean etc, are just self-serving.
    Nothing to do with being “soft” or in local slang “bo chi” ……..and that sinkies are now paying a heavy price for the epic failures in the mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic and the adverse consequence and impact on the economy requiring billions of $$$$$$ to ameliorate the said epic failures. However what is of more importance has been the loss of billions and billions of $$$$$$ from the incompetent (mis)management of the reserves…….not only the realised and paper losses, but also opportunity costs. The succeeding CEO of TH, is from what’s in the public domain, another incompetent person.

  • No wonder:

    With such a small number, they should have skipped the voting as a sign of strong protest.

    Instead of saying no, they could have said fiack this bill.
