- Election loss forces Singapore into delicate balancing act
- loss of by-election will force (PAP) to balance investor and voter needs
- anger rising over soaring living costs, reliance on foreign workers and a widening income gap
- Workers' Party took PAP-held seat in Punggol East by 11 percent
- eroding support for the PAP
- economic and social pressures challenge the PAP's technocratic approach
- steps to cool property prices, restrict foreign workers and enhance social protections.
- new population and immigration policies are due
- human touch helped Workers' Party candidate, a woman who works as a sales trainer and lives in public housing, defeat the PAP's contender - "a colorectal surgeon with so many credentials and too much ministerial caliber".
The Singaporeans (like many Chinese in Penang) are really tired of the PAP and DAP talking down to them.
And they themselves are not angels either. The by election happened in East Punggol after the PAP candidate was forced to resign after a sex scandal. Ha ha ha.
There have also been other sex related corruption scandals in Singapore like the National University of Singapore professor who gave higher grades for sexual favours, and that very high ranking Singapore Army fellow who demanded sexual favours for some IT contracts or something.
Just like the DAP here. They can stitch up their CEC Election results to fake a Malay from a Chinese. No questions to be asked. They passed a completely unconstitutional law to curb democracy (their so called anti hopping law). When one of their own DAP members opposed it, they promptly suspended him for six months. This is Gangnam DAP style.
Their members have also negotiated 10,000 acres of land in Kelantan from their political allies. When others do the same things they scream corruption. When they do it, it is called a business transaction. Banyak cantik.
The PAP's loss in Singapore shows that the people are fed up with the 'holier than thou' complex that they have. You really need a more human touch. You have to listen to the people. The days of "Government knows best are over" - here is the guy who said this. He is the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
And here is another picture. This was the MCA's dinner and ceramah in Penang yesterday. 5000 people attended the dinner. Full house. Chua Soi Lek is doing a good job of reaching out to our Chnese folks. This is Penang ok. There is plenty of delicious food in Penang. People dont come here because they are starving or because its a free dinner (at least not everyone). The DAP also organises free makan. This crowd is making a statement. You have to get down and listen to the people.
