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.
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.
The Telegram group surfaced and came to the wider public’s attention in September 2019 after several women reported finding their photos shared on the platform, in various state of undress. Upskirt photos were also found of unsuspecting women. At the platform’s peak, it had between 44,000 to 46,000 members. Police have confirmed that they have arrested 4 men for their connections to the chat group.
Singapore might have lost one footballing talent, while Ben can never step foot in Singapore again. The winner in all this saga? Minister Ng Eng Hen, who must have looked smug as he stood his ground, denying a young man an opportunity to make smart choices in his life.
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. So what were the MPs doing for two years when their appointed man was happily taking bribes managing their town Council? Sleeping on the job to not realise this? Isn't this the same as failing in their fiduciary duties?
Having children? It will just add to financial strain already felt by many Singaporeans. So is this just an excuse for PM Lee and his government, to say that since Singaporeans cannot replace themselves, then they have no more choice but to keep increasing the number of new citizens and replace ourselves? What has our Singapore become?
However, this does not apply to University students, as they will still be charged with adult fares which costs up to $1.48 for an average journey of 10 km. This does sound a tad bit unfair, as University students are still students, just like the polytechnic students. They don't hold full time jobs, and thus, have no steady income to pay for the increase. In light of this, three undergraduates started a petition to appeal for university students to receive the same rights.
Albert advised all opposition supporters to avoid arguing with the PAP guys when they knock on home doors and instead just politely inform the politician or volunteers with these words - “I am voting for democracy, thank you.”
Some of those videos and photos also allegedly include upskirt photos. The chat group is named "SG Nasi Lemak", although it has nothing to do with one of Singapore's favourite food. It allegedly had more than 44,000 members when it was active, before being taken down. However, it was understood that this group was not even the first iteration, and that once this was shut down, the group will definitely reform under a different name.
