PAP MINISTER OF STATE TAKING POTSHOTS AT OPPOSITION?

It seems that even though the prime minister has yet to announce the dissolution of parliament officially, the gloves are off for some members of the People's Action Party. Yesterday, East Coast GRC MP Lee Yi Shyan, who is also Senior Minister of State for the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Ministry of National Development, gave thanks to the hard work and commitment by the East Coast GRC team for working hard on the ground since GE 2011, but issued a veiled warning to opposition parties wanting to contest in the ward.

WE MUST DEMAND HIGH STANDARDS OF THE PAP BEFORE THEY DEMAND FROM US

Since it's close to NDP, national and patriotic discussions would inevitably arise especially with the looming general election. Very often, in an attempt to silence any criticism of the government and leaders, people such as PAP IBs will use a JFK quote: "ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country".

CATHERINE LIM: PAP WILL WIN IF OPPOSITION IS NOT UNITED

Some readers of my website have emailed me to ask what I think about the coming General Election ( strongly speculated to be on September 12). Presumably, they are most interested in my prediction of the outcome. Will the PAP do better, or worse, than in 2011? Is it possible that with the ‘feel good’ factor reaching its peak after the Silver Jubilee celebration in August, plus all the goodies that the government has been handing out so generously, the PAP will win a landslide victory? How will the opposition, with new parties coming on the scene, fare? Will they spring surprises? Will they win more seats in Parliament?etc etc.

TAN JEE SAY: TIME FOR THE PAP TO STOP SCAREMONGERING

In SingFirst's social safety net announced in February this year, we have provided for Scandinavian style welfare benefits to encourage childbirth such as 90% subsidies on childcare centre fee and child allowances of $300 per month for children up to age 12. In addition, we also proposed a range of other benefits for families by lowering the cost of living such as waiver of all fees from primary one to university, 30% reduction in public transport fares and old age pension of $300 per month for all senior citizens aged 60 and above. The total package costs only $6 billion a year and it can be financed from the investment return of around $8 billion that the government is allowed to use for annual budget spending. There is absolutely no need to raise the GST at all, much less to up it to 20%.
