Will Goh Chok Tong Cry Out Again?

Desmond Quek

SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek said it was due to cultural issues. His boss Khaw Boon Wan attributed it to bad luck, maintenance crew and suppliers – and stresssed that Kuek’s heart was in the right place. Khaw’s boss PM Lee Hsien Loong said the Transport Minister was doing a difficult job well and had his vote of confidence.

So what do Singaporeans say? Will 70% still say the PAP is right and to be trusted and have been accountable and delivered on all their promises?

We have a situation in Singapore where the buck does not stop with the powers-that-be. Million dollar salaries and the buck does not stop with them? Only those well below the top are made expendable and get the sack. How in the world did this come about?

Because the 70% are daft? Because the 70% are selfish? Will it always be this way?

Let’s go back a little to GE 2011 when the PAP had their worst performance since independence, with the Workers’ Party winning six seats. Almost immediately after the GE, Raymond Lim (Transport Minister), Mah Bow Tan (National Development Minister) and Wong Kan Seng (Home Affairs Minister) were retired from the cabinet. Not to mention Lee Kuan Yew.

Goh Chok Tong, faced with losing Aljunied GRC comprising two Ministers and a Senior Minister of State cried father cried mother: “What mistake has George Yeo made? You can take a Minister and criticise him for not delivering on perhaps housing and transport. Like Wong Kan Seng you can say he let Mas Selamat escape. George Yeo, what has he done to deserve this?”

Well, the simple fact is that none of the Ministers he mentioned were made accountable for so very long for the mess they created and so the voters spoke; it was left to the electorate to force the hand of the Prime Minister.

What will happen in the next GE? Still 70% for the PAP? Or will people have the guts and the common sense to wake the PAP up? And make Goh Chok Tong cry father cry mother!

  • Walk a mile in our shoes:

    We want to see most of them get voted out ..then on results day they can all stand in a line and cry like babies, asking the same question “what did we do wrong?”.
    How can they see what they are doing wrong when they dont come down from their ivory towers n dont have to worry about losing their jobs or worry where their next meal comes from.

    Hard lah,….tis place ardy “sold to the Dogs” !

    Only way is probably a “Major incident” like IS, Financial bubble burst from China,or another SARs !

    Countries which and who are “more align” to the US would probably “suffer” from Trump’s “BIGGEST mistake” in “siding” Isreal.

    Maybe our Indian/Malay Muslim President can help “cool” the situation ???

    Most World leaders have “personally commented”….lets see what ours “dare to say” ???

  • opposition dude:

    Next GE PAP will get less than 70%. For sure. How much less than 70% is unknown because we do not know where the new citizens are residing, we only assume that they might ne concentrated in areas where PAP thinks they might lose.

    If PAP is to wake the F up in the next round they will need to lose more than one little GRC. Thy were shocked that they actually lost one back in 2011 which is why Wong and Mah were demoted to MPs and why the MM and SM positions vanished overnight with both old cocks demoted to MPs as well. This is the only type of signal PAP understands because the threat is very real, not the fake wayangs masqueraded as feedback which we send through official channels like our MPs and the statutory boards.

    The thing is that no one knows just how much PAP’s vote share will fall in the next round. If it’s anything under 15% I doubt too much will change.

    PAP has already got over the shock of losing their precious GRC, they have 80++ monkeys in parliament and they know the majority are kiasees. You don’t make them lose a minimum of 4 GRCs not much will change after the election.

    i can tell you right now
    no need to wait in anticipation
    it’s never gonna happen
    in any other country on earth, the pigs would have been kicked out long ago
    only in sinkapore, the 70% brain-dead peasantry keep voting for their abusers

    MF ex-seatwarmer cum Pee-M Woody will be about 80 year old by the time the next GE is held. Think he would follow the great precedent set by his Mentor Lee Kayu, stand for every GE Erection until finally kick the bucket or cannot ERECT anymore, whichever comes first!

    Voters of Marine Parade GRC, please do the Needful in the event a BE or a GE is held. Show him your Extended Rude Middle Finger. Since he stepped down as the SM(Senile Minister) to become ESM(Extra Senile Minister)he has been contributing FO for our country, except continues to ENJOY all the fiacking perks and privileges at the expenses of all Taxpayers! In the 38 Oxley Road Lee Kayu FAMILEE saga, most Singaporean have expected him to do something Meaningful and Beneficial for the country after he had spent wasteful years as the seatwarmer cum Pee-M under the Big Thumb of Lee Kayu. Yet he didn’t do anything positive and instead continue to sing the same tune as ordered by the DSon of Lee Kayu, Mai Hum! HoLee shits!

    Spot on. Cos Papsmear-Sinkieland has way too many cronies, lackeys and bootlickers under its payroll. FYI, Sinkabore-nei-noy has the BIGGEST civil service slaves aka “employees” in “free world”. And God has mercy on the 30%, the gahmen is still EXPANDING the civil sector. Make a wild guess why? So many useless minstrels with world’s highest salaries in this SMALLEST island state comparable to anyone’s pee sai.

    Said it a trillion times less than the trillions lost and pilfered by Pinky and her black hole kachink$ man wife and cronies, Sinkyland MUST and will collapse b4 any semblance of miracle can occur. And that may not happen cos it truly does not deserve a resurrection with so many selfish traitors around. Did God revive SG (Sodom & Gomorra) after it was destroyed??? NO, cos the soil was deemed UNCLEAN, HARAM, TOXIC. Go figure.

    30%, protect your assets and loved ones from the access of this demonic and c.o.r.r.u.p.t. administration to minimise the fallout. It’s exactly like surviving in the land of The Walking Dead. U can’t possibly eradicate the hordes of zombies (70%). Just try not to get bitten and avoid the so called “Saviors” aka human machinery aka Papsmear running the land. And always remember, u can NEVER be friends with a zombie, they will BITE u eventually cos it’s in their DNA. Keep them at a safe distance ALWAYS!

  • Where's Swiss standard?:

    Lao Goh’s talk cock sing song about Swiss standard of living for Sinkies.

    No one has held him accountable for making fake news.

    Now, someone has promised a Smart Nation.

    Another talk cock sing song?

  • Singaporeans Wonder!:

    How did he became Chief of SAF?

    What ‘Culture’ did he left behind in the Army?

    I think he will make a good Minister as majority are only good for nothing!

    He should replace Khaw when the time comes now that there is a Fulltime Working Chairman at SMRT. No need for a CEO anymore; waste time and waste money!
