Our conscience has found its voice, it is not with the the WP or SDP or the NSP but in a young lady. The others are too worldly wise and grown up; too sophisticated and complex; in a word - too political. The clean pure voice of the people reaching into the core of who we are is Nicole Seah. She is down to earth and real. I hope she gets into parliament. If GCT is toppled, that is collateral damage for the rope PAP has created to hang themselves with.

"This is the kind of problem we have. We need a government who has a heart for Singaporeans."
"They (the PAP) do not have the mandate of heaven but the consent of the people... We must move towards the next phase of nation building to build a future that comes in more colours than white."
How can a country acts like a business and just say, "No hard feelings it is just business" It is a model that sacrifices us for the good of the business called Singapore.
If I put on the pragmatism of the PAP why would I want George Yeo to speak for the young? Where do I have the time for him to learn the ropes? We already have such a person in Nicole Seah. No hard feelings George, it is just good old PAP business. What went out is coming back, although I wished it hits some other cabinet members than you. Inhumane government that only see people for their economic utility. Cut the lofty rhetoric.
