WHY ELECTION 2015 AND NOT ELECTION 2016?

Surprise, surprise, LHL has finally admitted that the electoral boundaries review committee was formed two months back. I think this is easily the worst kept secret as you can see the sudden increase in activities by the PAP grassroots. This is also evident when the MOM has now u-turned and say that degrees from degree mills will be rejected. Just weeks ago, they stood firmly by their decision that experience is more important than “fake” degrees!! But what are the reasons for this supposedly strategic move by another “paper” general - LHL?

LEE HSIEN LOONG: SOCIAL MEDIA CAN INFLUENCE ELECTION RESULTS

Newspapers should aim to inform and educate and be a source of reliable information, opinion as well as entertainment. "And not all newspapers in the world aspire to do that," he noted.

PAP’S POINT MAN VICTOR LYE IN ALJUNIED SPEAKS UP

It is not for me to defend. I state it as a fact. The People's Association is a statutory board and is part of the government. What links are we talking about? The PA's volunteers are representatives of the government. They are a bridge between the government and the people.
