WP LEON PERERA: CAN WE TRUST A ONE PARTY SYSTEM TO SOLVE S’PORES PRESENT & FUTURE PROBLEMS?

A one party system makes it very hard for such an alternative party to exist. A one party system makes it likely that the ruling party – facing no viable competitors – will eventually lose its way. A one party system makes it likely that the ruling party will get away with changing the Constitution and changing Singapore to something other than a democracy, to keep itself in power forever. So that the system becomes practically uncontestable.

WILL A MINORITY PAP REFUSE TO BE PARTY OF MULTI-PARTY SYSTEM?

Will PAP refuse to be part of a multi-party system? It is a strange thing to hear the Minister of Education, Ong Ye Kung, claim that a “multi-party political system could ruin Singapore.” Besides the fact that there are many examples of small countries with just such a system which are thriving, Mr Ong’s claim raises the question of whether his own party would then decline parliamentary seats if they only formed the minority.

ONE-PARTY RULE ONLY OPTION FOR SG TO SUCCEED

Education Minister Ong Ye Kung finally came out and say what all Singaporeans know, that the party in power would really want to keep all the power to themselves. He came out and blatantly said that the one-party rule in Singapore is the best way forward to ensure Singapore's success. The people in power is now so scared of losing their grip on power, that it is now not enough to always find fault with opposition party. They rolled out their Minister to go out and say that if we dare choose any other party to provide the balance and check in Parliament, then Singapore is in danger of failing. So much for democracy.

DR CHEE: THE NEW WORLD IS MAKING S’PORE IRRELEVANT BUT THE PAP STILL DONT GET IT

THE BACKLASH AGAINST globalisation has never been stronger, the oil and gas industry is in the doldrums and seems far from recovering, the adoption of clean energy is moving faster than anyone had anticipated, China is aggressively investing in infrastructure in Malaysia and beyond, and jobs are being rapidly lost to automation. These developments are conspiring to render Singapore irrelevant to the world. Make no mistake: A crisis is in the making, that is, if it's not already upon us.

S’PORE LOST $30 MILLION WORTH OF TERREX BECAUSE WE ARE RUN BY PAP CLOWNS

Singapore has gotten into trouble with China because it is run by a bunch of clowns who just don’t know when to shut up. And when they did so temporarily, dishonourable son’s sister discovered she could also talk. A number of PAP elites must have contributed to losing $30 million?? worth of military equipment. Who are responsible? Parliament didn’t ask so, again, nobody is responsible for tens of millions in tax dollar losses.

5 LESSONS FROM PAP’S DISASTROUS HANDLING OF TERREXGATE

When Minister Ng revealed on his Facebook account that he would have some announcement in Parliament on the 2 month long Terrex saga, I looked forward to some progress or at least a constructive update. Instead, the whole country was treated a comedy stand up routine by him in Parliament.
