Is it going to be a change for the better or for the worse ? Taking a
hint from past,...previous changes have always been a change for the
worse. (Examples: the GRC and NMP were changes against the very basic
principles of democracy) Would it be any different this time ?
SM say: "Changes must be fair to all contesting political parties".
This guiding principle was in place in the past...but it didn't stop
the government from turning almost all constituencies into large
He added: "The changes must give all parties an equal chance to
contest and win."
This sounds good. Is it just a political spin...mere words to fool
Singaporeans ...or real changes will be made, this time.
Will the government remove the serial numbers on the ballot.. allow
other parties to have TV time and newspaper adequate coverage to reach
the Singaporeans, so that voters will have all the info needed to make
a balance choice at the voting booths.... or stop denying HDB
upgrades to those constituencies who voted for the opposition ? VERY
There is no way...that the leaders in power.. would give all parties
equal chances to contest and win.
The leaders dare NOT fight and win on merits. Without these unfair
and devious 'election schemes'...Singaporeans may just vote
differently. Too big a risk...the present bunch of leaders are not
It seemed starnge tha SM is responding to the speech by making a
comment on the sppech that they wrote and crafted for the president.
The speech that was made by the prata president was written and edited
by them, Pm and SM. It was them, through the president's making of
the speech, that said politics must change.
When SM commened on the speech that change must be fair and equal
chance.. blah, it was like he was saying it for themselves for the
speech that was written and crafted by them.
In other words, it was liked he already knew in their aims in the
making of the speech. It is like "I am commenting on the speech that
we made". It is like a pot calling the kettle black.
His repartee is like telling to the president, like this way "hey, mr
prata president, please make sure that the your proposed change must
be fair, hor .. and be sure ti is equal, hor.". He, for he knows,
knows that the prata president is just a puppet-on- the-string and is
not involved at all - in the change made by them.
This is a wayang seen in most parliamentary democracy....
the PM write the speech for the Queen, the President, or
the head of state..to be delivered at the opening of the
It set out... the tone and most pressing issues of the day.
This year, the right thing the government should do...is
to discuss the actions to be taken to solve the economic
crisis now faced by Singapore ... Strangely, this seem to
be absence from the agenda....instead, the government
focus on ...making changes to our political system.
Are our leaders 'off centre' ...or it is a ploy to divert
attention from their inability to grasp the enormous
economic problem faced by Singapore ...and utterly
at a loss on what to do to overcome the problems.- Hide quoted text -

It seems they already have run out of steams in solving the enormous
economic problems. One can see that MPs are "avoiding" the bringing up
on the subject of job losses and finding of jobs and economy issue,
etc. They probably have been "told" not to bring it up, as it will
"add oil to the heated fire" as the country is still in the confused
mode of "hollowing" out in the economy.
