Pissed with the SDP and Despicable PAP

I was waiting for the bus after sending the car to the workshop and I read this on my S3. All the usual nag lines I have heard over the years.

I am very pissed with Alex Au and Vincent Wijeysingha. They are reactive, disruptive and lacking in wisdom. Learn to fight like the WP and NSP. At the same time I consider LHL and TCJ resorting to defamation suits despicable. This is an insult to us voters. They are taking us to be children or imbeciles. Leave it to us to make up our minds and for those who are immature to grow up.

PAP and SDP I am not voting for them. Unfortunately WP and NSP can't form the government yet.

The PAP cannot be given a blank cheque. They must be continuously checked and held accountable. If a policy is too complex to understand it must be rejected. I wouldn't even bother to understand not because I can't but there is no time. George Yeo warned them that building trust with the people is vital. Sadly they have lost it for me.

The PM legal action against Alex Au was so dumb and if I think he isn't stupid, he must have something worse to hide. Think NKF, CHC, Robert Maxwell etc.,

If only Pyrrhic victory can be got, why bother unless the alternative is worse? Many of us will think you have something to hide. Something very egregious that is worth shooting your foot to protect.

So will the PM do the right thing as Tan Cheng Bock aptly pointed and suggested?


  1. Agree with your sentiments (mostly) except for the part about being pissed at Alex Au. If you read his postings carefully, like many others (including TKL), you may find that there's nothing defamatory about it. He's raising valid questions. He's sticking to the facts.

    I personally applaud him for speaking up. It takes a lot of time to do the kind of analysis that he did. I know it takes you time too to post on blogs. Imagine doing so, but with multi-part analysis and with citations.

    I think in this case, we need to stand with people like him. Send the message that you cannot just shut us all up by shooting the messenger. We will not be intimidated to ask questions. You cannot do as you please (transferring public assets to a private party) without being called to account for it.

    On this matter specifically, TKL, TCB, Alex Au, and WP heart are in the right place. In their own way, they're asking valid questions. I dare say, without Alex's detailed probe, public consciousness of the issue may not have been as strong. The style maybe different but each has his own part to play.

    Reminds me of this :
    "But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you."

    And this :
    "First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me."

  2. Remember the Thaksin scandal where it was revealed that some Temasek Holdings's shareholding in some Thai companies was held under the proxy names of some Thai national. Now had this scandal not been exposed, nobody would have any clue that some of our national assets are being held in held in the names of foreigners.

    Think what would happen if some fine day PAP loses power, would you or me or our future generations be any wiser as to what would happened to all the public taxpayers' funds held abroad ? Especially if the President himself is not even given a list of what constitutes our sovereign funds that he/she is supposed to guard ?

    So if we do not start asking questions now, are we going to blame ourselves later if nobody is going to be accountable later ?

  3. Hehehe,I love the latest by Alex,PAP mis-AIMed, faces blowback, part 6. Published 7 January 2013 ,
