SDP: Jolovan’s courage should be commended

Jolovan Wham

The Singapore Democratic Party has long believed and fought for the basic freedoms guaranteed by our constitution.

When we became independent in 1965, our then Prime Minister proclaimed that “Singapore shall forever be a sovereign democratic and independent nation, founded upon the principles of liberty and justice and ever seeking the welfare and happiness of her people in a more just and equal society”

Over the last fifty two years, we have seen those principles slowly but surely being eroded. Those who have campaigned for a more just and equal society have been marginalized and silenced for too long.

Mr Jolovan Wham has peacefully spoken out in support of the very principles that Singapore was founded upon – liberty and justice for all. He should be commended for his courage and integrity in helping to bring Singapore back to our historic roots.

The basic rights to speak and publicly participate in our nation’s affairs are enshrined in our Constitution and must be respected by the authorities. Restricting the very freedoms that our pioneering generation fought so hard to secure is unconstitutional.

Pursuing Mr Wham for peaceful protests that have harmed no one is a regressive step that can only adversely affect Singaporeans and Singapore’s global reputation.

Paul Tambyah
Chairman
Singapore Democratic Party

    LKY proclaimed “justice, democracy, etc.,” in 1965 for Singapore, and then we have seen those “eroded away” over the years, and we need be surprised? As a self-declared “pragmatist”, those terms and “values” were useful to him, only for their propaganda value with their favourable emotive associations. He was Opposition in Malaysia (after failing to get the Tengku to replace MCA with his PAP?), and doing lip-service for justice, etc,. suited him, say for getting Singaporeans behind him against “unjust” Malaysia – important at that stage for him politically. Did LKY really care for justice and democracy? He had openly said he believed only in “democracy that works” (not democracy based on justice and equality!

    Great and gutsy comments by Dr Paul, a True Blue Singaporean.

    During the 2WW, Lee Kayu was a trait** to our country when he saved his skin by acting as an interpreter to the Japanese. He had sold his soul to them.
    After the War, he made used of his friends and buddies to consolidate his power base. Later after becoming the LEEder of the pack, he got rid of his political opponents by jailing them without trials, some for more than 30 years and also retired all his comrades who opposes his authoritarian rule! His proclaimation of liberty and justice and a more just and equal society is all bullshits. After he became the Emperor and later schemed to install His boy as his heir apparent, he had forgotten what he had said and promised. Both walk like crab, sideway. People with opposite or different political views from them are thrown into jail or driven out of the country permanently! Both MFs aren’t different from ancient Chinese emperors who brought the country into ruin and was taken over control by foreign powers! Hopefully the 69.9% DAFTS will read Dr Paul’s and also Dr Chee’s Great articles on suppression of political views and freedom of speech by the PAPigs, first by Lee Kayu now by his DSon, Mai Hum. In the next BE and GE, please vote Dr Paul and Dr Chee into Parliament to speak for us True Blue Singaporean!
