Roy Ngerng: #‎NowIsTheTime‬ to put Dr Chee into parliamentRoy Ngerng: #‎NowIsTheTime‬ to put Dr Chee into parliament By the way, I am just going to say this. When I was running against Lee Hsien Loong in Ang Mo Kio in the general election, I was unemployed. But Lee Hsien Loong... never mentioned about my unemployment status. Obviously, he didn't think I was a threat. I was a nobody. That Lee Hsien Loong would bring this...

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.

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...

SDP needs to take over Bukit Batok town councilSDP needs to take over Bukit Batok town council During my 15yrs stay in Bukit Batok, my block was very very dirty. No block cleaner at all. The drunkards here and there were sleeping at the void deck. So much adult urine was produced by groups of overnight drunkards living under our block and was not cleaned away. Smelly Wei! Our running water pipe became the breeding...

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...

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...

This shows that Lina cannot make it as a politician and should stop riding on the coat-tails of her husband for her...

就是现在

就是现在

你好!我无法告诉你们,我能以候选人的身份再次回到这个选区参与补选是何等的兴奋。 不过,由于一些状况,王金发先生必须辞去职务,我们也因此得以参与武吉巴督的补选活动。 我清楚地记得我当时在会议中听见同时向我耳语:“王金发辞职了!王金发辞职了!”我当时还暗暗自忖,究竟谁是王金发?直到同事提到了“武吉巴督”的名字,我才意识到那人是议员。没多久,我们就决定参加补选。 我唯一的顾虑是,像我这样的姓氏(注:徐顺全的英文姓氏是Chee),参与的又是补选(注:补选的英文是by-election,把徐顺全的英文姓联合起来念,听起来会像福建话的某句脏话)——我的天,你可以想象吗?——铁定会让互联网乐翻天。也确实是如此。 言归正传,能再度回到这个选区的感觉很好。新加坡民主党曾在1991年参与过武吉巴督的竞选,并取得优越的成绩,拿下了将近48.2%的得票率。由于民主党当时的得票率逼近人民行动党,让武吉巴督岌岌可危,所以人民行动党在1997年的选举中把武吉巴督单选区纳入武吉知马集选区,之后又纳入了裕廊集选区。 过了将近四分之一世纪的时间后,人民行动党认为武吉巴督已成为了他们的安全地带之后,便让武吉巴督恢复单选区。 这就是人民行动党惯性的政治把戏。每当单选区有机会落入在野党的手里时,它就会急速地改动选区划分。记得如切吗?当如切快落入工人党的囊中之物时,人民行动党便赶快把它划入马林百列集选区里。 现在人民行动党会说:“欸,这些年来,新加坡民主党怎么不见踪影?”看到吗?这就是人民行动党运作的方式。我们在武吉班让、荷兰—武吉知马、马西岭等地区一直努力地展开竞选活动,然后人民行动党就会突然在毫无迹象的情况下,根据它的喜好,在最后一分钟——整整20年后——把武吉巴督再度变成单选区。 这就是人民行动党爱耍的政治把戏。过后,又故意缭乱你的视线,问你:“哦,在野党在哪里?” 然后,就告诉你它的候选人穆仁理先生在武吉巴督活动了16年,却只字不提他是阿裕尼集选区2015大选的竞选团队成员之一。顺便在这里提一提,大多数我们所拜访过的选民不是没见过穆仁理,就是不知道穆仁理是谁。 即使如此,我们新加坡民主党不被过去牵绊,我们永不言败。我总是会说:“是的,我们可以的!”我们向前看,凭着没有什么能难得倒我们的精神迈向前。 因此,当我们知道武吉巴督又成为单选区后,我们马上宣布我们将到这里竞选。为什么?因为我们觉得这是我们的家,在某种意义上来说,新加坡民主党回来了。Kita...

For example, on May 29, 2010, NTUC Income placed a newspaper advertisement with a picture of Dr Goh Keng...
