I am not in support of smearing but, specific to Steve Chia, is it not despicable to sabotage Opposition unity to lobby NSP to rescind an earlier announcement of not contesting in Macpherson? Is it not despicable to walk out on his Pioneer SMC, to contest in another SMC without first addressing his potential voters why, I believe abt 40% of Pioneer residents votes for him in 2011 and deserve an explanation.
Although I do not support smearing, I somehow think this is the result of his own doing.
Who knows, he maybe pulling out from resigning later? With enough sympathetic voices of how smearing has hurt him, would he then be “obliged” to step out again and reclaim that he is contesting afterall?
