Time for Workers’ Party to re-assess its destiny

Workers’ Party has built up a sterling reputation over the years and it looks like it’s going to tumble overnight. It’s mind-boggling how it can make such abysmal blunder in its inept handling of its MP Raeesah Khan’s fib in Parliament. The performance by Pritam Singh in the Committee of Privilege is anything but convincing. The general impression is that he is evasive and disingenuous not surprising seeing the predicament that he has found himself in. In all fairness Minister Edwin Tong is simply doing his job and does not appear to have any agenda. His animated questioning of Pritam Singh is only to be expected notwithstanding what aspersions some netizens have cast upon him. It will be a surprise if Workers’ Party is vindicated in the Committee of Privilege report.

I think it will be time for Workers’ Party to re-assess its destiny because there will certainly be no lack of disillusionment in discerning electorate. Progressive Singapore Party is not likely to be rigorious enough to take over the mantle. So there will have to be a lof of soul-searching among WP leaders to rejuvenate the party to its pristine leadership.

Good luck to Workers’ Party.

    Good luck to you too, Yoong. U may need a huge amounts of it.

    From my view, your views are quite myopic. They progressed from, winning one single seat, held on to it for years, went on to land a GRC, and another one.

    If these are not feats, progress – makes me wonder what’s on your mind.

    Your comments don’t seem to take into account their gradual achievements.

    Sure they need to move with the times, take stock and switch mode and direction – but don’t seems like what u chided them for.

    so also the 39%. whether we curse WP or not curse WP, we vote anything anyone any animal as long as it is NOT pap.

    as everyone honest knows, pap lies far more than any other political party in existence in Singapore. Truth is, pap folks commit far more wrongs in Singapore. Adultery? Look at pap Michael palmer. Corruption? Look at the cheang wan. Gutter politics? Look at teo chee hean. Outright BS? Look at cow boon hwan.

    Did pap lose power despite adulteries, corruptions, gutter politicking, outright BSing? No. because cotton sheep votes pap despite all of the above.

    Will 39% stop voting WP because of pap trying so hard to fix WP? hahaha. good try by pap PA paid IBs. humans are more or less the same, whether cotton sheep or 39%. all are creatures of habit. WP will continue to be voted by Aljunied Sengkang East Coast marine parade residents.

    If esteemed Ms Raeesah Khan has done wrong, pursue her. Since she has already resigned, and if pap is unsatisfied, pursue her.

    Why bring into the picture as if the whole WP has a hand in the wrong done by WP party member esteemed Ms Raeesah Khan?

    Such fixing of the OPPO by pap shall backfire. Like everyone honest knows, there is a maker in heaven. When maker of heaven says, enough is enough, no end of fixing OPPO by pap can destroy the mandate of heaven that pap shall cease to form government after GE2024.

  • PM Lee talking cock:

    Straits Times: PAP at turning point again, party must continue working with S’poreans to take country forward: PM Lee

    PAP in indeed at “turning point” because it will likely lose more support from Singaporeans at the next GE. Another 10% shift in votes could see support for PAP go below 50%.

    PAP knows it us in trouble because Singaporeans are worse off since LHL became PM. His has been a total disaster for Singaporeans with his pro-alien policies that resulted in thousands of Singaporeans PMETs lose their job to foreigners.

    LHL also made HDB a Ponzi Scheme. The price of HDB flats has more than doubled since he became PM while wages were stagnant. He used HDB to “drain” the retirement savings of Singaporeans into over-priced, poor quality and basically depreciating to zero HDB flat while he and his colleagues in Cabinet live in million $ freehold bungalows.

    When u talk to the younger group of voters, what they are picking up is not political inefficiency by WP, arguably that maybe the case, but what they are picking up is the ecosystem that in the first instance they worried about Ms Khan’s sexual assualt that she didnt even tell her parents. In the first instance, is not about legality but about the human. Settle the human issue then please settle the legal issue.

    Just to amplify. Slavery used to be legal, it is morality that overturned its legality. Which comes first? I think WP could have done alot better. But in the first instance they allowed humanity to prevail. Alas, the follow up was not good.

    Edwin Tong looks more like cross examining Pritam like a prosecutor cross examining an accused in court. Pritam is evasive because he knows Edwin is laying traps for him in every question. Edwin successfully trapped Raeesah and he thought Pritam is easy meat.

    Also, Ah Yoong, you don’t need to worry for WP. Before GE2020, look at how the MSM whacked them left and right over the AHTC saga. Even after the judge announced the guilty verdict against WP, they still won Aljunied by a bigger margin and captured Sengkang unexpectedly and the PAP all chui tut lan including TRE tech.

  • Clowns Of Parleeament:

    I agree fully with the comments by Zhenzidan. How could Mr Yoong not be able to tell that Pritam is very alert and successfully siamed ET’s traps again and again.

    
And I’m surprised to read Mr Yoong saying ET is just doing his job and has no agenda! Mr Yoong, did you actually watched the COP videos or not? Or did you doze off now and then because of ET’s repeated questions? ET has repeatedly asked many questions over and over again, twist here, twist there, trying to catch Pritam off guard and giving a contradicting answer, there’s no agenda?

    ET was trying too hard. But too bad for him. If a person did not lie, he has nothing to hide and an intelligent person like Pritam who knows what the pap is up to will not easily fall into any trap unlike silly RK who needs a thousand lies to cover her first lie.

    Also, Mr Yoong must have lost touch with the common people. Many people actually praised Pritam’s leadership, appreciate his show of compassion for Raeesah and hated the pap’s bullying. This whole episode actually backfired on the pap. WP will win even more supporters in the next GE and will probably win another GRC.

    I think you got it all wrong that ET who claimed who can’t survive well with a 500K annual salary is doing his job. To me he looks like a clown on stage.More like rookie lawyer practicing his trade as a lawyer.

    If he was asking those type of questions in a court of law any judge worth it salt to have told him to shut up and move on.

    ET has clearly loss the plot based on the instructions given to him from the top. But he has made clear strides to join the 3 other jokers in the MTF and probably vying for the PM job.

WP has gotten the wrong candidate who is not only young but full of ego. It is a painful oversight but I think WP’s image is still sound and need to scrutinise his candidate strictly in the next election.

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    Pritam’s purported telling her to carry her lie to the grave would be out of character, and so the Committee should take heed of possible explanations proffered. Now, she had provided medical reports of her psychiatric condition, and had shown unstable behaviour consistent with the reports, including the lying and its repeats. Therefore very likely that she had misconstrued Pritam’s advice to “take responsibility” and to “own it” to mean own the lie in the sense of maintaining it? She had not shown herself to be too well-versed in english and so not unlikely to misunderstand. “Taking it to the grave” might have arisen from her being told that not coming clean would mean taking her guilty conscience to the grave, as Pritam (check this and the timeline on this) said he also told her. She heard and understood that partially, in her confused and highly emotional state? Etc., etc.

Just look at the Party Against Peoples, through the years they have many “black sheep” and the party is still running despite many protests of the ways they had handled the matters, e.g. trace tog saga which has been exposed. Many people perceive that by using RK saga, they are again trying to fix the oppos. They had done it before in other matters against the oppos, but the WP was able to withstand the tests before, and this is reflected in the GE2020 results. So, dear fellow citizens, do not be intimidated by the MIWs.

  • WP done correctly,properly:

    The espisodes regarding RK and COP inquiry.
    MY TAKE:

    ANY organistaion if a management executive is suspect of wrong doings
    The top management will covertly carry investigation, the managenment dont
    immediately rush to announce OR TO THE WHOLE PARTY.
    WHY?
    TO BE FAIR TO THE ACCUSED,OR OTHERWISE VERY PREJUDICES TO THE ACCUSED and carry out investigations seriously and deeply and left no stone unturned.
    IT TAKE CONSIDERABLE TIME,JUST LIKE THE TRACE CONTACT THE TRUTH COMING OUT 4 MTHS LATER.
    IN WP RK CASE 3 MTH.
    IT HAS TO thoroughly investigated and facts accurate before going to public.
    IN THIS CASE of RK, AS SHE IS A SITTING MP.
    MORE TIME NEEDED TO HAVE ACCURATE INFORMATION BEFORE FIRM AND DECISIVE ACTIONS CAN BE TAKEN.
    AS SHE KEEP CHANGING NARRATIVE OR SAYING THINGS WITHOUT THINKING, IT IS VERY DANGEROUS FOR SINGH TO IMMEDIATELY CORRECT HER IN HER SECOND TIME LIES IN PARLIAMENT.
    IF SINGH IS TO CORRECT HER IN PARLIAMENT, GIVEN THE DEEP EMOTIONAL STATE OF MIND SHE MAY ACCUSED SINGH OF UNTUTH AND SLANDER.
    , THUS DESTROYING SINGH REPUTATION.
    SO THE NEED TO FURTHER PRODE INTO HER SECOND LIES AND AS TO WHY SHE KEEP REPETITION LIES.
    ONLY WITH LATER CONCRETE EVIDENCES, FIRM ACTION CAN BE TAKEN.
    WE AFRE TALKING ABOUT A SITTING MP, AND NO ORDINARY MEMBER OR PEOPLE.
    WP OWE AN ANSWER TO THE VOTERS OF SENGKANG AND SINGAPOREANS IN GENERAL…
    IT HAS TO BE VERY ACCURATE AND CORRECT BEFORE ASKING HER TO STEP DOWN .
    THIS IS NO ORDINARY CASE AS INVOLVED A SITTING MP AND NOT AN ORDINARY,MEMBER.
    AS EXPECTED PAP GAGMT SEEM TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS AND TRY TO IMPLY SINGH IS NOT TRUTHFUL WHEN HE DID NOT REBUT RK SECOND LIES.
    PAP INTENTION BEAR OUT IN THE COP INQUIRY AS IT BECOME A WITCH HUNT TO IMPLICATE WP AND DAMAGE ITS REPUTATION.
    WHAT COUNT IS WP SERIOUS IN ADDRESSING THE SITUATION THROUGH SERIOUS INVESTIGATIONS WHICH INVOLVED A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORTS,PROCESSES AND TAKE CORRECTIVE ACTIONS.
    THERE IS NO HIDING OR CONDONING OF RK WRONG ACTIONS.
    THIS IS VERY,VERY IMPORTANT AS WP SHOWN SERIOUSNESS IN DEALING WITH WRONGS.
    U HAVE A THINKING MIND, U CAN DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.

    What can the COP do to the WP leadership? Nothing? Contempt of the Committee of Privileges? I do not think so.

    The COP has no right to judge the internal working of the WP. The COP has no right to question the WP’s Disciplinary Penal and the decision of WP Central Executive Committee on it’s own WP MP Raeesah Khan.

    How the WP deals with RK is an internal matter. RK had confessed she lied in Parliament and the Singapore Police Force vindicated with any shadow of a doubt.

    Almost like the COP is keen to prove that RK was treated unfairly by her own party DP and CEC because the Senior Leaders had withheld material information from the DP and CEC. The material information being the WP Leader Pritam Singh had directly or indirectly encouraged RK to bring her lie to the grave with no consequences.

    Pritam Singh said she would be sack by the WP even if she had not confessed the lie.

    excusing themselves that the report is “fluid”. . . .

    Yoong SW.

    Spend time to read the postings to your article.

    The PAP Regime ((as the governing Administration (please don’t equate the PAP as the SG Govt, there’s A DISTINCT separation between the govt service to SERVE SGpns and A SG GOVT service HIJACK by the PAP Administration TO MANIPULATE and serve their Political objectives) )) has CREATED A HUGE POLITICAL EARTHQUAKE among Singaporeans to get all to SWALLOW up the WP and WP supporters.

  • Flickshit:

    I think the title is wrong , it should be ”

    Time for PAP to re-assess its destiny. PAP stays to long in power and its has lost its way- as stated by LHY.

    don’t takes all its voters as fools and don’t think that you are invincible. Don’t think we are still living in the 1950s era…

    Soon your party will falls, just like the Roman Empire or any dynasties in old days China. let see when…

  • If only Raesah was a cat .....:

    A fascist, a liberal, and a communist start arguing who’s got the better ideology…. hehehe
    To settle their argument, they decide to see whose ideology can make a cat eat mustard.

    Fascist takes a spoonful of mustard and forcefully shoves it down the cat’s throat. Done!

    Liberal puts mustard between two pieces of tasty meat and tricks the cat into eating it. Sneaky… but not too cruel….

    Communist smears mustard below the cat’s tail. Poor animal starts meowing from the pungent substance, and tries to lick it off. Communist says: “Take note comrades! it’s eating mustard voluntarily and bursting into cheerful song at that!”

    Now, you can swop the “fascist” & the “communist” tactics if you wish….. then Pritam arrived on the scene; he was shocked to witness the screaming frenzied feline and rushed forward to save the poor animal… the lying feline had got it coming for her hehehe.

  • Dear Yoong:

    Did you write about Vivian Balakrishnan’s untrue statements in the Parliament and to the public about the tracetogether.
    If I am not wrong, Ministries will either send their staff to the Parliament sessions and/or scrutinize the Parliament readings and reports.
    Why didn’t Shanmugam or his colleagues correct Vivian there and then?
    Was this untruth discussed or mentioned in the Cabinet?
    Why did it take so long for Vivian to own up in the Parliament? How many months since he made the untrue statement?
    Yoong, should you write something about this too? You know better than many others, including Cabinet Ministers, how Singapore system works?
    Is it because you are afraid or is it something else?

  • Dont trust PAP:

    Edwin Tong COP summons WP for all documents pertaining to RK’s issue.
    They will at all cost legally or otherwise get it.
    Remember Lawrence Wong told LHL that his siblings went to a department under his Ministry to get some information/documents.
    Did LW ask his staff to monitor LHL’ sibling’s activities just like the monitoring of housing situation prices then? Or is it just the system for the department head to report to the Perm Sec who then reports to the Minister on matters of interests?
    One thing I am sure, LW gains tremendously from this saga. He is promoted to head the MTF and full Finance Minister and rumoured to be LHL heir apparent.
    But the people suffer, big businesses benefit, just look at the share prices of DBS, OCBC and UOB, and some local REITs.
    Property prices are rising, property owners are increasing rental.
    Singaporeans are paying more for their housing.
    The PAP mouthpieces headlines are the government is increasing GLS in 2022H1, w=if you read the details, the GLs is reduced – though the confirmed list increases, the reserved list decreased more, so overall the number is reduced!
    This is Singapore and PAP machinery. No wonder the US did not even invite Singapore for the summit for democracy!
    Sweet dream, Singaporeans, in your tiny bedroom.

  • Political sophistry:

    First an imbecile Kahn who had resigned and she paid for her guilt . Simply a trash act by a bad actor who jump on a silly word women empowerment . So much so it reverse the empowerment . She started it and ended.

    This song and dance can cut both ways – a greater stealth resolve and hardening of opposition positions and its memberships – getting rid of spies and trouble maker or potential media risk actors .. deep cleaning from within the party membership . The die hard will hanker down and more will join the ranks to stop this abusive dominions .

    This political sophistry and energy to discredit an opposition has not answer more important questions Singaporean want to know .. when are we getting out of this pandemic . This imbecile Kahn is dead in the water empowerment .. move on.

    Enough of the drama . Tell Singapore how did u spent the $100,000,000,000. COVID funds .. let us see your honesty and integrity for every dollar spent .. did u bail out any ailing companies ? Did you overpay any company? Did u recover monies overpaid ? Temasek linked companies how much were given them for job support schemes ?

    A drama overkill and citizenry are more concerned of mis-governance issues and weak government than to care a gone case over a silly imbecile Debancle

  • Realistically:

    My name is HH Bin and I have stated unambiguously about the wayang party’s snake oil cons…………even as I hv been the one who also have been speaking out more so against the PAPies and the emperor without clothes……….

    Testimonies by Pritam Singh (PS) especially show beyond ANY DOUBT that he is NOT truthful, at least NOT consistent with or even contrary to the FACTs which are as follows:

    Ms Raeesah Khan was a “sexual assault” victim when she was 18 years when she was studying in Australia ie about 10 years ago. Since then she has been married and has 2 kids with her husband. So whatever happened in Australia has NOT affected her ability to go about life. SO it is just Pritam Singh’s and those of Sylvia Lim and Faisal Manap’s EXCUSE/distractions of bringing in Raeesah’s parents into their evidence.

    Raeesah was said to have lied, “not once, not twice, but three times” IN Parliament, so PS’s (together with SL & FM) giving the impression that Raeesah’s untruth could NOT be the result of her mental state which PS described as “DISSOCIATION” ie Raeesah’s mental state have NOTHING to do with her untruths alleged THREE TIMES in Parliament.

    Also if Raeesah still had the kind of mental state which would have caused her “dissocaition” then the wayang-party’s leadership and her fellow Sengkang GRC MPs should have been able to observe/detected much earlier………….BUT they did not, and that the wayang-party not only accepted her as a member but also a candidate for the Sengkang GRC which the wayang-party won.

    It is also the first time that PS mentioned about Raeesah’s alleged “dissociation” which could have affected her telling the untruth on 3 August, but that kind of excuse/distraction/diversion could not hold up when Raeesah repeated her untruth for the 2nd and 3rd time.

    If PS, SL and FM believe firmly that UNTRUTHS should NOT be spoken/alleged in Parliament, what is their duty and responsibility to Parliament when they knew that Raeesah have uttered in Parliament the 2nd and 3rd time? NOTHING whatsoever in telling Parliament otherwise. If exposing their own party’s MP is not proper, the PS should have just informed Law & Home Affairs Minister K.Shanmugam NOT to waste Police resource to go through several years of Police record from around 8 August 2021 AFTER Raeesah had admitted that her 3 August claim in Parliament was a lie.

    Today, 22/12, Raeesah has told the COP about PS’s falsehoods in his COP testimonies and I have no doubt that Raeesah is a more credible and sincere witness, notwithstanding her lie in Parliament which she repeated the 2nd and 3rd times………….I’d attribute that to her wanting to embellish her call for better Police treatment of women even as I condemn her for telling a lie in Parliament…….as to PS (& the other wayang-party MP’s motivation of luxuriating in their monthly MP’s allowance.

  • paleface:

    Super fast when dealing with this unnecessary thing.
    Karl Liew is still not in prison yet. 18 months has passed. Why?
    Hope everybody forgets over time?
    Just because he is Liew Mun Leong”s son??
    ….plus perjury ( lying in court).
    The maid Parti was supposed to be jailed about 27 months because of his perjury. He should be jailed that amount of time if not more.
    But now he is still around. I cannot forget….but many Singaporeans have forgotten over time.
