WP COMES UP WITH ITS OWN FUNNY FLYER CALLING FOR VOLUNTEERS

This is why the WP is so much more a party for the people who are in touch with the ground, rather than the elites over at the whites, who are only ever concerned about making money above all else. The recent flyer doing the rounds for a resident's committee in Fengshan is prove of that.

After the flyer got public, what with grammatical errors and sweeteners for potential members, WP had a light-hearted response to them. Just take a look at the flyer, and you will agree that WP is the winner in this saga. They have come up with an online advertisement of their own, and called for volunteers and listed the benefits that the flyer had noted, and categorically stated that the WP does not offer the same advantages. "We do offer: occasional free meals (leftover from events), free exercise from carrying chairs and tables, eternal love and gratitude," the tongue-in-cheek WP ad added.

PEOPLE'S ASSOCIATION TO COURSE TRAINERS: IT'S ALL COMMUNITY SERVICE

I was told that it is all for community services. However, they (PA) charged residents for the courses and pay us about 50% (after taxes etc.,). I was unable to get jobs working outside as a trainer.

Our pay checks are always delayed 3 to 6 mths: as the people who sign our checks are always on vacation. I later found out that these people are sent overseas to build "Government base" overseas.

KEECHIU CHAN CLAIMS PEOPLE'S ASSOCIATION IS FAIR & NON-POLITICAL, OH REALLY?

I refer to the article “People’s Association is not partisan: Chan Chun Sing” (Channel NewsAsia, Apr 14). It states that “”The PA is a statutory board. It executes the directions for the Government of the day, as per any statutory board. The PA does not allow any political activity or canvassing on our premises or in our activities. And we certainly do not mobilise anyone for any political party,” Mr Chan reiterated. “If Ms Lim has any such evidence of wrongdoing, you can let me know, and I guarantee you I will follow up. I will be the last person to ever allow the PA to be politicised.””

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.

PAP ACTIVISTS PLAN TO USE NON-PARTISAN GRASSROOTS RESOURCES TO TOPPLE WP IN ALJUNIED GRC

After GE2015, this PAP activist in Aljunied GRC, Suhami Hafidz, said that WP's only weakness is their grassroots support. He said that through the RCs (residents' committees managed by the so-called non-partisan Peoples' Association), PAP can get more programs for Aljunied residents, and get the residents to be more involved, thus getting them to understand the PAP's goals which are all about making Aljunied GRC a better place for residents to stay under PAP rule.

CORRECTION TO MSM NEWS: PA PANEL TO FIX LAPSES IS INCORRECT

There is a footnote at the end of the news report “PA sets up panel to fix lapses” (Jul 17), which said “Correction: An earlier version of this story and its headline said that the PA had set up a panel to fix lapses. This is incorrect. The panel is to review rules and procedures. We are sorry for the error.”
