PAP MPs Still Not Practicing Social Distancing In Their Walkabouts

It is alarming when a video clip of PM Lee himself circulating hand sanitizer to a group crowding around him. Where was safe-distancing in this case even though he has to be more visible to the public at the time when the GE maybe upon us? Remember, this safe distancing thing has been preached by the Government themselves, yet here was the leader going around happily disregarding his own Government's sound advice.

Lam Pin Min Met Largest PMD Turnout In His MPS, But Did Not Allow Them To Speak

While this will be painted in the MSM as PAP MPs going out of their way to accommodate the PMD riders by meeting them and having a dialogue with them, the reality is that this was nothing more than a PR exercise, where the angry and unhappy PMD riders are gathered under one roof, and told in no uncertain terms that the government will never budge from their stand. This was never a dialogue, but a monologue from a PAP MP.

PAP MPS ON WALKABOUTS BYPASS HOMES OF QUESTIONING RESIDENTS AND LEAVES FLIERS ON DOORS INSTEAD

During the last GE in September 2015, i was at my parents place on a saturday when the door bell rang. Standing there was 2 RC/PAP staff with the lightning logo on their tee shirt. She "instructed" me to stay at home bcos the mp is coming by to give me some stuff. So naturally, i asked her give out what. She murmured something which i couldnt really understand. i went "huh?" Then she impatiently said, "walkabout la, you dont know what is walkabout ah?" The other person beside her immediately said something like "this one don't waste time". After more than 3 hours of waiting, nobody came by. I decided to then close the front door when I realized somebody left something on my gate. It had a beautiful photo of the smiley MP in the front and read something like "we were here earlier today but nobody was at home..", written in 4 different languages. I couldn't be bothered to read the rest of the content.

WHY SHOULD HDB RESIDENTS PAY FOR PAP MP BANNERS?

Do HDB residents want to pay higher S & CC? It’s about time we scrutinise TC expenditures. Some of the expenditures can be reduced, such as MP greeting banners. I have queried Pasir Ris Punggol TC but it has refused to disclose the probably embarrassing amount spent.

PA VOLUNTEERS AT MPS SCOLDED NEEDY RESIDENT INSTEAD OF HELPING THEM

The meet the people session has a large number of volunteers who would assist residents to write letters. The MP would only speak to people with highly difficult and urgent complex issues. When we spoke to the volunteers to assist us and when we told them the problems my grandaunt is facing. She had recently lost her job and needs some help with her utility bills. But they would be so sarcastic and say that there is limited resources and limited help, cant always accede to all your requests. Told us to fond solutions to our own problems where possible. My main complain is, when we ask them for help, they will turn around to lecture us and told us off saying we need to learn to be independent.

UNFAIR WHY WORKERS PARTY MP HAVE TO HOLD MEET THE PEOPLE SESSION UNDER HAZY HDB VOID DECK

I cannot help but notice the difference in treatment between PAP and WP MPs. All are elected by the people but have different benefits. PAP MPs have the benefit of using RC or PAP kindergarten to hold their MPS but you see what the people elected Opposition MP from Aljunied GRC has to grapple with? They have to hold MPS in hazy conditions under voiddecks? There is no air con, no computer and there is no army of grassroots helping them.
