GOH CHOK TONG: PNG ENG HUAT IS SPREADING RUMOURS BY READING LEE SIBLINGS’ FB POSTS

ESM Goh Chok Tong lashed out at Workers' Party's Png Eng Huat in Parliament today for merely reading out quotes from Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling's Facebook instead of stating his position on the issue. "Anyone can simply read. That is akin to spreading rumour. As an honourable Member of Parliament, he should state his position on what he has read. That is what we are elected as MPs for - to have a clear view on issues".

ALJUNIED RESIDENT: WE WILL FACE MORE NEGLECT DUE TO PARTISAN POLITICKING

I refer to your article on Sunday about Mr Goh Chok Tong urging voters to judge both WP and PAP by the same standards. I find this hard as a voter of Aljunied and even harder when the people of Singapore more or less tends to side with the WP though they have failed in their job of running a Town Council as alleged by the Judge while most of them have also failed as orators.
