PAP ELITES DESPERATE EXPLAINING OF SHAMBOLIC PRESIDENCY SHOWS SEISMIC LOSS OF FAITH?

When the PM and his 2 DPMs have talked on an almost daily basis about the just concluded shambolic reserved Presidency , you know things must be bad for the PAP ! Internal surveys have probably indicated a drastic drop in support for the PAP which they are trying desperately to reverse. This reserved Presidency is the single most important political awakening for Singaporeans after half a century of nationhood. They have seen their political leaders and Establishment cynically manipulate the constitution in a bid to entrench their political power. They hated what they saw.

DPM TEO: WHY IS LHY SO HURT? "THIS IS NOT THE HSIEN YANG I KNEW"

DPM Teo Chee Hean recounted his impressions of the Lee siblings in hopes that they will not accuse the PM just because they are unhappy about having to clarify their father's last wishes. While he said "the Hsien Loong I see now is the same Hsien Loong I have known all these years - an upright person who stands by his principles, and does what is right..." he continued that "the Hsien Yang I see now is not the Hsien Yang I knew". He did not understand why LHY is so consumed by hurt and hopes he will "find peace and solace within himself" in due time.

As for Lee Wei Ling, DPM Teo guessed she must have gone through difficult times because of her parents and her own health, and wished for her to have a healthy, long life.

OXLEY RD DISPUTE SHOWS DIFFERENT LAWS FOR ELITES, HOW CAN WE "NORMAL PPL" BE CONFIDENT?

Our reader is disappointed by the Oxley Road dispute as it shows double standards in Singapore - one set of laws for the elite, and another for ordinary Singaporeans. LHY and LWL are allowed to cast aspersions at the PM over a course of 2 weeks without facing any legal action while less powerful Singaporeans are subjected to the law of defamation and lawsuit if they do the same.

"How do you explain, Mr Tharman, this double standards? You said... 'Have confidence, folks.' Perhaps you should try on the shoes of those who have been sued, bankrupted or gone into exile. As one who supports you being PM, I am disappointed at your nonchalance in this saga."

HAS THERE NV BEEN A MALAY MINISTER DEEMED CAPABLE ENOUGH TO BE DPM?

With the government expressing concerns that we may not have a minority-race Elected President if the current election laws are not tweaked, here is another similar concern - but this time regarding the position of deputy prime minister. But all have not had any Malay as DPM. Is it a concern? Should it be a concern? Or has there never been a Malay minister deemed capable enough to be DPM - in all of our 51 years? Maybe something to think about?
