BUKIT BATOK RESIDENTS SHD VOTE CSJ UNLESS THEY LIKE TO REPENT

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?

4 REASONS WHY TALENTED DR CHEE WILL TRASH PAP PART-TIMER MURALI PILLAI

100% Commitment: Dr Chee will be a FULL TIME MP for BB and able to be fully committed to fellow residents of BB. But Mr Murali will hold a full time job as a top class lawyer who can easily earn a million per year - only likely less than 20% of his time as MP as will earn less than 20% of his income as MP say $200k per year while getting a million a year as a top notch lawyer.

WP PRITAM SINGH: EVEN IF SDP WINS BY-ELECTION, RESIDENTS WILL STILL GET UPGRADING

In 2011, about 3-4 weeks before the General Elections, the then PAP-managed Aljunied Town Council carried out an exhibition for a Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP) at a precinct in my ward of Eunos. The timing and message of the exhibition was political by any stretch of the imagination, i.e. vote for PAP, you get upgrading. I have no doubt HDB will not withdraw NRP funds committed for the NRP at Blk 140-149 Bukit Batok West Ave 4, regardless who wins, based on the post-2011 precedent of Eunos Spring. It would be opening itself up to a judicial review of administrative action in Court if it did.

EX WP, EX SDA, RECENTLY SINGFIRST MEMBER TO JOIN BB BY-ELECTION?

It looks like one more person has collected the nominations form from the Elections Department. His name is Abdul Rahim bin Osman, 59 years old, a business man. In the 1997 general elections, he was with the Workers' Party team that contested for Cheng San GRC. They garnered 45.2% votes. In 2001, he contested under the SDA banner for Tampines GRC. They received 26.7% of the votes. In the last two years, Abdul Rahim was with SingFirst.

CAN WE REALLY COUNT ON MURALI TO ADDRESS CRITICAL NATIONAL ISSUES?

I hope she will take it from an Aljunied resident under direct contact with Murali in Paya Lebar of the pretense of most PAP representatives whether they are elected or otherwise. PM Lee said he had "full faith" in Murali when he sent him to Paya Lebar to battle Mr Chen and in the process, made all kinds of false promises. We recently discovered his heart was "still in Bt Batok" and he "never really left there". In Paya Lebar during insincere letter writing sessions only once a month, many of the residents feedback to government agencies are masked and only palatable portions are sent to the various parliamentary secretaries and ministers of state who take it as a pinch of salt and reject the request anyway. So if it's going to be the same when you vote PAP candidates after election time, you might as well send the opposition to parliament where you can at the very least, get a double portion of benefits from both!

PM LEE: THIS BY-ELECTION ENABLES RESIDENTS OF BB TO HAVE THEIR OWN MP

I would like to refer you to this Facebook update by PM Lee about the by-election of Bukit Batok. He said, "DPM Teo and I spoke earlier. Now that the Budget is out of the way, we are calling this by-election to enable residents of Bukit Batok to have their own MP as we work together to improve Singaporeans’ lives." What does he mean by that? The residents just chose their MP last year in 2015. Does he mean they were not "enable" last year? The only reason why they are "enable" to choose so to speak is because David Ong had an affair AKA personal indiscretion. It is not "enable".

HOMECOMING IN BUKIT BATOK AREA PERHAPS?

Dr Chee was like giving me a history lesson as we were doing our Sunday's Walkabout yesterday, "You see this, this is the clock tower done during Ling's (Ling How Doong) time" "There used to be rows of plants planted during those days when SDP managed the town council" - pointing to the landscape at one of the blocks. "Oh my, we used to be here at that Coffeeshop"
