Rebuttal to Grace Fu's attack on Dr Chee's characterRebuttal to Grace Fu's attack on Dr Chee's character All Bukit Batok SMC voters please think about this: If a salesman A sold you a bottle of health supplement, and shortly after taking it, you developed serious symptoms of food poisoning, would you still want to buy another bottle of supplement (same brand, different packaging) from the same salesman A who is selling...

Dr Chee is still better than Mr MuraliDr Chee is still better than Mr Murali I refer to the 30 Apr 2016 Straits Times report "Grace Fu and Halimah point to Murali's track record and character" i.e. Ms Fu and Madam Halimah reportedly laid out three criteria for Bukit Batok voters to judge their candidates: First, what kind of person is the candidate? Second, what promises has be made? And...

PM Lee's ungracious comments on Dr CheePM Lee's ungracious comments on Dr Chee Following a media interview with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, netizens have been up in arms over some of the comments that PM Lee has made about Chee Soon Juan, SDP chief and election candidate for the Bukit Batok by-election. Our reader has sent us his thoughts on PM Lee's comments. "Mr Lee, I am ashamed of some...

Last night at the People's Action Party's election rally for the Bukit Batok By-Election, Speaker of the Parliament, Mdm Halimah Yacob took the stage in support of the PAP candidate, Mr Murali Pillai.

A letter and cash to Dr Chee Soon Juan wishing him success to Parliament. Most parents wish for their next generation, especially their children. Look what has happen now to Singapore?...

Roy Ngerng: Dr. Chee Soon Juan would make a good MP!Roy Ngerng: Dr. Chee Soon Juan would make a good MP! Chee Soon Juan was a university lecturer before they made him lose his position. Even so, he is a visiting professor for the past few years to other universities. The PAP looked at Dr Chee so highly that they invited him to join the PAP. Dr Chee politely declined because he wanted to advocate for more progressive policies. In...

If I Were A Bukit Batok Resident . . .If I Were A Bukit Batok Resident . . . Going by the fact that Bukit Batok residents voted overwhelmingly for PAP in the last General Election, it is fair to say that Dr Chee Soon Juan has an uphill task ahead of him. How tempting (and how easy) it is for those of us living elsewhere to wish that we could cast our ballots to send Dr Chee to Parliament. At...

Foreign workers hit all-time high?Foreign workers hit all-time high? I refer to the article “Unemployment rate for Singaporeans improves in first quarter: Manpower Ministry” (Straits Times, Apr 28). It states that “The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 1.9 per cent as of March 2016. The rate for citizens fell to 2.6 per cent, from 3 per cent in December, and that for Singaporeans...

The real average wage growth was only 0.9 per cent per annum from 2004 to 2014 (Source: Ministry of Trade and Industry Economic Survey of Singapore 2015). To put this...

The very thing LKY dreadedThe very thing LKY dreaded Lee Kuan Yew once said in an interview: “It’s the friendships I made and the close family ties I nurtured that have provided me with that sense of satisfaction at a life well lived, and have made me what I am.” Clearly, family ties and relationships meant the world to LKY. In his own words, it gave him the sense...

Political dud should stay out of SDP's businessPolitical dud should stay out of SDP's business Lina Chiam is not and will never be like her husband. Despite Potong Pasir being an opposition stronghold for years and years, the moment Chiam left for bigger GRC ambitions, it fell like a deck a cards. This shows that Lina cannot make it as a politician and should stop riding on the coat-tails of her husband for her...

The uniqueness of Uniquely Singapore!The uniqueness of Uniquely Singapore! In Uniquely Singapore, troublemakers are people who have the guts to question the government openly. Chee Soon Juan asked about our foreign reserves, he was a troublemaker. Roy Ngerng became a troublemaker when he queried about our CPF savings. The government ministers are never troublemakers even if they initiate...

The SDP would like to reassure voters of Bukit Batok that all government agencies are non-partisan and will work with whoever is elected as MP for Bukit Batok SMC. The URA has a draft master plan which covers all the planning areas in Singapore. In their brochure of the draft master plan for Bukit Batok published in...

The PAP'S porky pig pork barrel politicsThe PAP'S porky pig pork barrel politics David Ong had promised a $24 million "master plan" for Bukit Batok in the 2015 general elections. Murali's plans only cost $1.9m. Ong promised more than Murali - and these included remaking the market in the estate and its surrounding areas, improving the shops in the ward, a new hawker centre, as well as a...
