I understand why most Singaporeans want the PAP to form the government. It is partly due to the fact opposition parties have admitted that they are not ready to form the government.
This time round, like fate and destiny would have it, Mr David Ong is hit with an issue and the Bukit Batok residents are given a gem in Dr Chee Soon Juan. He is a changed man. My gut feeling is that barring unforeseen circumstances, the residents shall give their Blessings to this man. He will be one hell of a MP for you, the residents of Bukit Batok, as the man has promised to serve as a full-time MP. This is something Ah Mu won’t be able to do because he is holding a day job.
If Dr Chee somehow managed to lose the by-election, it goes to show Sinkies are either too afraid of changes, like to repent or daft.
To make a simple analogy – Is iPhone 4 a good phone just because Apple Inc created it? Is Ah Mu automatically a splendid MP because he hails from the PAP?
Or would you stick to the tried and tested phones that withstood the beatings? Just like how Dr Chee Soon Juan braved all the storms before him?
Residents of Bukit Batok, the time is now.
