Sore Loser

It was in the news today that Chiam's request for funds to upgrade Potong Pasir has been turned down.

Alamak expected lah.

Singapore gahmen where got give money to upgrade other country one?

What do you mean Potong Pasir and Hougang are part of Singapore? Cannot be lah. Look at the way gahmen treat them. Where got gahmen treat their own people like that one?

You sure Potong Pasir & Hougang are not foreign countries? Dunno leh, if like that hor, Potong Pasir and Hougang machiam like unwanted step-children leh. Like gahmen can't wait to cut them away.

Like these 2 are holding back Singapore like that.

Really they are also part of us har? Ok lor...... if you say so.... don't bruff me hor!

Anyway, here a riddle:

Question: What is the difference between the following 2 statements.

1) Potong Pasir and Hougang both kena tsunami, volcano, earthquake or all 3 one shot come. Then we will have all the Red Cross, UN Relief and international community to start pouring money into Potong Pasir's rebuilding/upgrading.


2) Singapore gahmen out of the goodness of their hearts and love for their people, releases money to upgrade/rebuild the homes of Singaporeans living in Potong Pasir and Hougang.

Answer: One of them will never happen.

Pam: I think letters doesn't do anything for after all, the gahmen is already ignoring it.

sunflower: I wonder what the gahmen can do too. Coz if by the next election, the minds of the voters are not put at ease, I can assure you that the gahmen with AMK in particular will secure even less than the present 66.6%

spinnee: In a way, although the current PAP is not perfect and neither do they claimed to be so, it after all still collected 66.6% of the votes.

In democracy, we must respect this percentage numbers.

Everton: Is there some disagreement? Then what would your view be?

Typical PAP response. I wonder how long it will be before they realise that this siege mentality will not go down well with Singaporeans.

Life Is Beautiful: Welcome to the blog!
The fact that some of us are already quite du lan with the PAP means that it has started not to go down well with some Singaporeans liao.

Keep this up and we'll see PAP lose their 2/3 majority advantage within the next 2 elections.

I can't agree with spinnee's attitude either. How can you say the residents should expect this when they voted for them? These residents pay taxes too, and the taxes go to the same central government (and I'm not talking about council tax - I'm referring to income tax). If the funds for upgrading other areas come from the central government (which is funded by the taxes the citizens pay) then the same funds should be used to upgrade the opposition areas too.

Otherwise, it implies that those who are in 'opposition' areas are 2nd class citizens.

Pam: I am trying to see if there is another angle to Spinnee's comments.

I think what Spinnee is trying to say is that the type of attitude that the PAP is displaying is not some surprise that they suddenly pull out of the hat. It has been going on for a long long time already and it is not exactly something that people cannot see.

Despite this, the people (or at the very least the 66.6% voters) still cast their votes for them. As a result of PAP election success, the people must now "live with the consequences" so to speak?

Pam: Apathy? That's probably it. For too long that our fellow Singaporean are so lazy to scrutinise the candidates on their own. For too long that our fellow Singaporean just sit back and let the Gahmen do everything for them.

As such, the people are paying the price of letting clueless idiots slip into parliament.
Well, you are hearing more noise than before. Perhaps the people are finally waking up to their senses.

Hopefully, this won't be an all talk and no action type of situation. Hopefully, we will have capable people stepping up to the plate and do something.

It may not necessarily be on an opposition ticket. Even if they join PAP, it would still be good for Singapore for they will be the ones to weed out and replace the pretenders currently hiding comfortably in the shadows of the big guns.
