On Wednesday in Parliament, Sylvia Lim pointed out that the PAP Government had couched the decision on how to count the Elected Presidency under a legal cloak by claiming that this was the Attorney-General's advice. This was done to avoid any rigorous challenge in Parliament. But now Shanmugam claims it was never suggested that that the decision to count from Wee Kim Wee was made because of the AGC's advice. How can you trust the PAP after this?
Singapore Democratic Party's Chee Soon Juan lashed out at DPM Tharman for saying the mainstream media here is well-balanced. "If the DPM believes that Singaporeans are no fools, then why does he continue to tell us to believe him and not our lying eyes?"
Our reader mocks the PAP for building Bukit Panjang LRT due to political pressure and wonders if the same is true for the upcoming Downtown Line. "As a Minister, Khaw has failed miserably. It seems he only knows ow to blame everyone else except himself".
When the PM and his 2 DPMs have talked on an almost daily basis about the just concluded shambolic reserved Presidency , you know things must be bad for the PAP ! Internal surveys have probably indicated a drastic drop in support for the PAP which they are trying desperately to reverse. This reserved Presidency is the single most important political awakening for Singaporeans after half a century of nationhood. They have seen their political leaders and Establishment cynically manipulate the constitution in a bid to entrench their political power. They hated what they saw.
DPM Tharman disagreed that PAP engages in gutter politics but why didn't anyone refute similar accusations during the Bukit Batok By-Election, when almost 5000 people signed a statement calling on PM Lee to stop his party from such behaviour?
Some say the US Immigration Board of Appeal has granted asylum to Amos Yee. He was earlier granted asylum in March but the decision was subsequently appealed against by the US immigration. Good for him?
Workers' Party's Leon Perera spoke up about the restrictions to asking more questions in Parliament due to limited quota. He listed questions on transport, finance, parliamentary videos, etc that have not been answered since April.
