EVEN PRO-PAP EX-NMP WHACK PM LEE FOR SMART NATION NDR SPEECH!

Just after making a post disageeing with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's recommendations for a healthier living for all Singaporeans, former Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP) Calvin Cheng has hit out again at another of PM Lee's key National Day Rally themes.

EX-NMP CALVIN CHENG: GVT SHOULD NOT BE FUNDING ART, LEAVE THAT TO PRIVATE DONORS

Ex-NMP Calvin Cheng thinks that the Government should stay out of making decisions on whether they should be funding art. This is especially since the government will receive backlash anyway - if it wants to fund, it has to come up with strict criteria but if it does not fund, it will be accused of censorship. What do you think?

EX-NMP ACCUSES ACTIVISTS WHO BADMOUTH S'PORE TO FOREIGN MEDIA OF TREASON

I am seeing the usual suspects giving interviews and writing to foreign media, milking the misery of the Oxley 38 saga. To me this is worse than airing dirty laundry in public. This is treason. If you want to change Singapore, get involved in politics. Stay in Singapore. Appeal to the Singaporean voter. Not to foreigners who do not care whether if Singapore survives.

CALVIN CHENG: PM LEE IS DAMN LOUSY AT 'ABUSING POWER' COMPARED TO TRUMP & NAJIB

Honestly, if PM Lee 'abused his power' to only get a deed of gift from Lawrence Wong, and to set up a 'secret committee' that everyone and his dog now knows about, he is damn lousy at abusing power. Look around the region and the wider world to see what an 'abuse of power' looks like. For example, sacking the FBI chief investigating your friends. Or squirrelling billions into an imaginary fund.

MADNESS FOR S'PORE TO REVISIT 6.9 MILLION POPULATION WHITE PAPER WHEN EVERYWHERE IS CROWDED

In an article published by the lapdog sheet, the Straits Times, today, PAP lapdog Calvin Cheng who thinks being a "former NMP" (a tag which he likes to brandish around as if it is a big deal) entitles him to respect, called on the PAP to implement the Population White Paper. He argued that the PAP has solved many of the problems that caused it to suffer an electoral setback in 2011 and has regained the people's trust. For instance, he cites the public transport front as having seen progress with measures put in place to correct its "deficiencies".

CALVIN CHENG SLAMS HDB'S FLAWED REASONING TO BAN CATS, ALL DOGS SHOULD BE BANNED WITH SAME REASON?

HDB's reading is faulty and exposes a poor understanding of cats ( and dogs). Cats can easily be kept in apartments for the precise reason that they don't need to be taken out to pee/poo or exercise. If this is the reasoning they use, then it is actually dogs of all kinds that should be banned from HDB flats.

CALVIN CHENG: DR LEE IS UNREALISTIC - CONTEMPT LAW IS NECESSARY IN AGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA

But we CANNOT mete out justice according to public opinion. This would be mob-rule.

We therefore need these laws to ensure that justice is not served according to public opinion.

This is especially so in the age of social media, where self-appointed vigilantes think they are policemen, prosecutors, judges and executioners. They now have to think twice before meting out mob-justice, whilst a case is ongoing.

In my opinion, the codification of contempt of court laws into statute cannot come any sooner.
