PAP introduced a young damsel to be contesting in the Marine Parade GRC this coming elections and some netizens start going apeshit digging up her private stuff and all.
Pei Ling has one picture holding a Kate Spade gift and posing with a act-cute peace sign. Then there is the youtube clip of her act-cute stomping of her feet at the end of the reel.
What is the big deal? You never see girls with act-cute poses and act-cute stomping feet meh?
Then how is it that she has to be different. Act-cute very siah suay meh?
Let us not judge a person by his/her age.
Let us not judge a person by his/her age difference with his/her partner.
Let us not judge a person by his/her partner's profession.
Judge the person for the work he/she has done, is doing and will do.
Judge the person for the manisfesto he/she stands for.
Let the ignorant netizens mock and scorn all they like for ultimately, it will be the constituents' votes that matter at the end of the day.
If she has done well at grassroot level for the past 6 years, then rest assured, the people will vote for her.
Too bad, she won't be able to have her mettle validated as she is entering parliament via the no-pride backdoor, if the incumbents candidates in her GRC win, with or without her.
Still, it would be a refreshing splash of colour into parliament like what we have done with Slyvia Lim, Eunice Olsen and Siew Kum Hong.
I think parliament will be such a drab place to be if it were filled with John Major/Margaret Thatcher-scholars.
Someone please kill me then.
So I say let her be who she is. If stomps her feet, pose act-cute peace sign with a Kate Spade bag in tow all the way to an election victory, then so it shall be for the people in the Marine Parade GRC has spoken so.
