Chiam See Tong Retires From Politics, Bringing the Curtains Down On 4 Decades Of Fighting The PAP

Mr Chiam had been with the SPP since 1996, after he left the party he founded in 1980, the SDP. Mr Chiam was the MP of Potong Pasir from 1984 - 2011, with the PAP unable to beat him in a General Elections at Potong Pasir until he vacated the seat in the 2011 GE, where he decided to contest for the five-member Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC.

However, MPs must go through their Grassroots Advisers to raise projects for consideration. For PAP wards, Grassroots Advisers are always the elected PAP MPs themselves, so basically, they ownself allow ownself to use funds. But for opposition ward, the Grassroot Adviser happens to be the very same PAP candidates that were defeated by the WP in the Elections, thus it is no surprise that they have their own agenda against WP doing good work for their residents.

Ah Loong Says Bond Between PAP And NTUC Needs To Be Strengthened, Current Bond Not Enough

Ah Loong Says Bond Between PAP And NTUC Needs To Be Strengthened, Current Bond Not Enough

Note how the speech comes at a time when Singapore's General Election draws ever nearer, and also how he did not subtly try to hide his words. He said the PAP and NTUC to work together, not NTUC to work with the Singapore government, with opposition and all. So, he has gone all out to ask NTUC to work with a specific political party, thus bringing in partisan politics to a Trade Union.

WP Accused Of Lack Of Fiduciary Duty, But PAP MPs Get Away With Not Even A Slap On The Wrist

When the Ang Mo Kio Town Council General Manager took bribes for almost two years before finally being caught, the PAP MPs for that TC, led by the esteemed PM himself, did not even get a slap on the wrist.

Senior Minister Of State's Wife Is Appointed Auditor-General, No Conflict Of Interest

Senior Minister Of State's Wife Is Appointed Auditor-General, No Conflict Of Interest

As Chan Chun Sing himself said, the Govt knows that Ms Goh is the wife of Heng Chee How, but that she had went through the rigourous process of integrity checks, and she has years of experience in the public service, serving the nation with integrity and sense of public service. So of course, she is above and beyond conflict of interest. When she audits her husband's Ministry, she will of course, in the name of duty, flag up any inconsistencies, and by doing so, show up her husband's lack of leadership. After all, the sense of duty for the nation is above than the sense of duty of a wife, right?

In the Facebook post on Tuesday evening, Dr Lee repeated what she knew of her father's stance, that he wanted the property to be demolished as he did not want Singapore to have a cult of Lee Kuan Yew.
