7 WAYS FOR WORKERS PARTY TO REMAIN A VIABLE OPPOSITION PARTY

WP did not do as well in GE2015 as they would hope to. While the reasons for WP losing ground was probably due to a nationwide swing toward PAP, this loss of ground does have very real practical implications about the future for WP. It cannot keep depending on Hougang to send its members into parliament. What can WP do to keep it a viable opposition party? I suggest the following seven ways

GILBERT GOH: OFFICIAL COMPLAINT TO U.N. REGARDING UNFAIR ELECTION PRACTICES

I want to formally lodge a complaint to the United Nations for our country’s recently-held general election. For the record, I also stood for general election twice – Tampines GRC in 2011 and Ang Mo Kio GRC this year. For the recent election, the ruling party PAP won by a landslide majority percentage of 70% – a huge increase of 10% over the previous GE 2011 result of 60%. Many opposition parties suffered from bad losses – right down to the unprecedented 20s percentile mark.

THE PUNGGOL EAST FIX: HOW THE PAP WON IT BACK

Without that increase of 3,278 votes, there was no way that Lee Li Lian would have lost. Her figures went down by 244. Plus and minus the increase in voters vs deaths and absenteeism, an increase in an SMC's figures should not cross more than 1 to 2% as Potong Pasir demonstrates. Even if we give all the votes KJ and Desmond got to Charles Chong and add a marginal normal increase in electors, you would only expect the PAP's totals to increase by 1,000 to 2,000.

NAIVE YOUNGSTERS SUPPORT PAP GOVT BECAUSE IT IS TRENDY & COOL

It's really true that many of the younger generation are supporting PAP because they want to feel like they are on the side of the 'good guys' against the 'bad guys'. If you side PAP, you're considered cool and trendy. Always following rules like a good boy. Need to take more selfies and wefies like PM Lee to fit in better in your social circle. If you side opposition, you're considered a whiner who just blames everyone for own failings.

WILL SDP EMERGE AS A 3RD FORCE TO RIVAL WP OPPOSITION MONOPOLY?

Opposition supporters in GE2015 was too naive and hopeful for an opposition unity. In reality, the PAP wasn't the common enemy to every Opposition Party. The game was to maintain a canvass of white with a dash of blue was the final objective. GE2015, WP kept all other opposition parties at length from the start and that is the way they like it in Parliament. After all, WP MPs sits in most parliamentary select committees, unlikely they would want it diluted. Now, the question is, can SDP lead a third force in GE2020?

UNFAIR WHY WORKERS PARTY MP HAVE TO HOLD MEET THE PEOPLE SESSION UNDER HAZY HDB VOID DECK

I cannot help but notice the difference in treatment between PAP and WP MPs. All are elected by the people but have different benefits. PAP MPs have the benefit of using RC or PAP kindergarten to hold their MPS but you see what the people elected Opposition MP from Aljunied GRC has to grapple with? They have to hold MPS in hazy conditions under voiddecks? There is no air con, no computer and there is no army of grassroots helping them.

RAVI PHILEMON: WHY DOES LEE HSIEN LOONG WISH TO FIGHT THE OPPOSITION? WE LOVE S'PORE TOO!

In his Speech to the newly elected PAP MPs, Mr Lee Hsien Loong said that his Party will take the fight to the opposition when necessary. People from the opposition love Singapore and are just as patriotic as the people from the PAP.

CAN THE PAP BE TRUSTED TO "OWNSELF CHECK OWNSELF"?

The PAP, especially Goh Chok Tong, claims during the GE 2015 campaigning that Singapore doesn’t need Opposition as the PAP can check itself..”ownself-check-ownself”. How many Singaporeans who are not familiar with Corporate Governance are taking in by such PAP claim and decided to trust the pap and so voted for the pap in GE 2015. Can we truly believe that the pap can “ownself-check-ownself?

WP FAILED TO UNDERSTAND SINGAPORE'S CULTURE FOR STABILITY & PEACE

GE 2015 shocked everyone with PAP winning 69.9%. All opposition parties were shattered to pieces and lost big time. WP lost Punggol East and nearly lost Aljunied. The face of Low Thia Khiang tells it all, he is sad & near tears. His reputation & political career is now over. All because his greed!
