LTA DENIED PAP MP’S REQUEST FOR 8-YEARS

What piques me is the fact that Ms Ng had lobbied, unsuccessfully, for eight years for a direct bus to ferry residents of Tampines Changkat to the only wet market in the neighbourhood and, in the end, she had to get a private operator to step in to provide this service. It was reported that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) found that this service was not viable.

PAP move to trot out potential candidates early surprising, say observers

Political observers were surprised by the People’s Action Party’s (PAP) move to expose potential candidates early to the public eye, with the next General Election expected to be some time away. This is a significant change in tactics, they said, adding that it was in response to one of the lessons the ruling party drew from the 2011 GE — that voters need time to familiarise themselves with new candidates. Said Singapore Management University’s Associate Professor Eugene Tan, who is also a Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP): “The fact that they are not keeping it under wraps does suggest that, certainly, one aim (of the PAP leadership) is to create awareness that they are exposing potential candidates to the voters at this early stage.”

“LESBIANS ARE CANCER” Dr Syed Khairudin Aljunied is a Member of the PAP

Also, Dr Syed was also the YPAP vicechairperson for the Chong Pang Branch, which you can see in the photos. It is likely that he is being groomed for political office, and was using religion to try to rally the Malay-Muslim community to the PAP side. Is this why he got off lightly? Can you imagine what would have happened if an Opposition politician tried to use Islam to gain the support of the voters? He would be accused of being an Islamic fundamentalist, or even worse be detained under ISD! The PAP tried to character assassinate Jufrie Mahmood that way when he used the words 'Insha'Allah' (God Willing), but here Dr Syed got off scot-free!?

Ng Eng Hen: New PAP candidates for next GE already on the ground

Potential People's Action Party candidates are already active on the ground, ahead of the next General Election, said party organising secretary Ng Eng Hen. Their earlier-than-usual deployment was in response to feedback after the 2011 General Election, he said in an interview published in Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao on Sunday. Then, many Singaporeans had said that the PAP should send people to grassroots organisations as early as possible.

GILBERT GOH: THE LIES PAP HAVE TOLD US FOR MANY YEARS

"Population white paper is good - its good for you because when they bring in more foreigners, more jobs will be created in the process. Fact - many local PMETs were replaced by incoming foreigners and even if they could find job the salary is being suppressed. Real reason - government wants to convert as many foreigners into new citizens for their votes."

LEE HSIEN LOONG: STRENGTH FROM UNITY

I tried out some of the benches at the URA Centre in January. The bench we’re sitting on was designed by Donovan Soon. It is named “Aesop Unbreakable”, after the fable about sticks which cannot be broken if they are bundled together. It is a story about strength from unity.

I’M A PRO PAP AND I’M PROUD OF IT

I know how politics can be a Really sensitive topic. And I know that writing an article on this will garner alot of opinions or criticism lashing out on me. Saying things like I'm just an ignorant foolish young adult who is fresh and don't know much about politics but still wants to give my own opinion on it. Indeed, I'm still young and fresh and I don't know much as compared to the older generations but I'm not ignorant. Do the youths of my generation actually have more knowledge about it? Or are you as equally "ignorant" as me?

Who will PM pick for Aljunied?

The more you think about it, the more it appears that Aljunied GRC is presenting the PAP with one big headache. The GRC system seemed like such a foolproof way for the PAP to secure its dominance. Who would have thought that it would end up haunting it, with that one loss opening up a can of worms? As we inch ever closer to the next General Election, which could well be next year, Singapore’s 50th year of independence, the PAP needs to have its strategy in place real soon.
