Ah Loong Says Bond Between PAP And NTUC Needs To Be Strengthened, Current Bond Not Enough

Note how the speech comes at a time when Singapore's General Election draws ever nearer, and also how he did not subtly try to hide his words. He said the PAP and NTUC to work together, not NTUC to work with the Singapore government, with opposition and all.
