WP & S’POREANS SHOULD RESPECT OTHER OPPOSITION PARTIES TOO

Looking at the wave of criticism against the NSP for wanting now to contest in Macpherson despite giving up Marine Parade, it is apparent that contrary to what some political observers say about GE 2015 being about political party diversity, the political landscape in Singapore is shaping up increasingly to resemble a lop-sided two-party hegemony. The way both the PAP and WP have conducted their preparations for this coming hustings indicates quite clearly that there will be little or no space in the future for other political parties.

TIN PEI LING LIKELY TO PREVAIL IN A 3 CORNER FIGHT

To the dismay of many pro-opposition supporters in Singapore, it looks like MacPherson SMC will be heading for a 3-corner fight for coming General Elections with NSP doing a dramatic U-turn to say that they will, after all, contest in MacPherson when they had earlier relinquished their claims. This flip-flopping of whether NSP will run in MacPherson did not go down well with netizens as many criticised them for being irresponsible and opportunistic; or even sabotaging the plans of Worker's Party

NSP: HOPE WORKERS PARTY WILL RESPECT US & HONOUR THEIR OFFER

The ball is on WP's court to honour their offer. At the all party meeting, the Workers Party had not given a deadline in their offer and their reps had agreed to come back at the 2nd meeting to finalise the discussion. So, they left us in a very unreasonable state. And our calls, emails and WhatsApp message to them all went unanswered. There is no respect for fellow comrades in the cause.

WP SHOULD ALLOW NSP TO CONTEST IN MACPHERSON FOR OPPOSITION UNITY SAKE?

Read the news about NSP decision to contest in Macpherson SMC. I think this is a reasonable request from NSP since they already graciously gave up contesting in Marine Parade to give WP a better chance. Especially after WP insisted on contesting in Marine Parade, some quarters of the Opposition have grumbled about WP's arrogance and high-handedness in their handling of the horse trading meetings. This is a good chance for WP to show they are a constructive leader of the Opposition movement.

POLITICS IS NO CHARITY, “ARROGANT” WP HAS EVERY RIGHT TO SWIPE NSP ASIDE

I know some people might view WP as arrogant or upset with WP that they are choosing to "encroach" on territories that the other party has contested in 2011. Politics is no charity and sometimes there is not much room for sentiments against another rival. They are all opposition, but put it this way, they can also grow to become opponents when each has outgrown the other.
