CHAMPIONING DIVISIVE ISSUES SHOW WHY PAP IS FORK-TONGUED

In 2013, PAP minister Indranee Rajah accused the Worker's Party of "straddling both sides of the fence" when it showed restraint and refused to be drawn into a divisive debate on the hijab issue. Fast forward to 2017: when WP raised the same issue in Parliament, the PAP and Lee Hsien Loong were quick to accuse it of championing divisive issues - conveniently ignoring the fact that its own MPs have asked about Malay representation in the Army as well as championed the tudung issue!

DIFFERENCE BTW WEARING BLUE & WHITE IN S'PORE, AM I NOT A LOYAL S'POREAN TOO?

I wear blue, I am divisive and sow discord. I wear white, I am with you, for you, for Singapore. I wear blue, I have no constructive ideas. I wear white, I have the civil service. I wear blue, I am political. I wear white, I am a selfless grassroots advisor. I wear blue, the estate is a slum. I wear white, the lifts are working. Wearing blue makes me no less a patriotic Singaporean than you who wear white. We each carry a pink NRIC and a red passport. We are foremost Singaporeans.

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.

PAP OPENLY ADVERTISE BENEFITS FOR RC MEMBERS, OWNSELF REWARD OWNSELF!

Gerald Giam from the Workers Party (WP) spotted this door pamphlet during his rounds in his ward and decided to show just what kind of tricks the WP has to deal with from the incumbent People's Action Party (PAP). According to the pamphlet, the PAP is looking for Residents Committee volunteers and openly advertised some major benefits for those who do join. They include priority queue for Ministry of Education primary school registration exercises, Ministry of National Development Grassroots Organization Scheme, HDB Special Parking Label and free education courses.

OUR VOTES ARE SECRET, BUT WHY NO EFFORTS MADE TO EDUCATE SGREANS THEY ARE?

Our votes are secret. We maintain this and communicate this to Singaporeans. This is a fact. In Parliament, I spoke about education to ensure that everyone understands this fact.

In the article, Mr Chong did not explain why the government does not insert ballot secrecy education into the Singapore citizenship journey to ensure that new citizens understand that their votes are secret. For example, a short write-up could be inserted into the handbook for new citizens. In Parliament, I asked why this could not be done, since this is relatively easy and not costly to do. We should also educate our students about ballot secrecy.

PAP "CASTING ASPERSIONS" ON ELECTED PRESIDENCY

PAP bulldozes through multiple last minute changes to the Elected Presidency, most significantly that a minority candidate can leave a GRC *days* before running as a *non-partisan* candidate.

Chan Chun Sing then jokingly refers to Halimah Yacob as 'Madam President' instead of 'Madam Speaker' (??)

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.

WP'S CLASSY RESPONSE TO AMKTC "CORRUPTION" SHOWS WHY THEY ARE S'PORES TOP OPPOSITION

After news of CPIB investigation into Victor Ng, the General Manager at Ang Mo Kio Town Council, many Singaporeans have called for the PAP to come clean and accused them of sweeping things under the carpet. In their anger, many jumped to conclusions and say AMKTC is already guilty of corruption and AGO needs to come in to investigate all their accounts. How did WP react? They reacted with class and decorum unlike many of the other Opposition parties. WP took a neutral ground and simply told their supporters to not pervert the course of justice and wait for full investigations by the CPIB and authorities to be completed before making judgement. This is what a true opposition party does, constructive but not jumping to premature conclusions.
