The PAP has been trying over and over again to fix the WP and it might well succeed depending on how voters feel and think (not think and feel, but the two will combine eventually)
Only two things are important here.
1. AHPETC will not get the vital $7 million, a huge sum of money to run their wards. This will be very costly to residents and the WP.
2. It is not even a First World Parliament, but unheard of in the world, the WP voted for the motion. We are talking beyond First World Parliament but there is no way to communicate with voters otherwise.
The WP is committed to fixing their problem. In fact they had been working on it but needed more time because they lacked resources.
Just remember what the PAP failed to do: A better Town Council Act from decades ago. So for the past 20 years who knows what they have been doing. From the personal angle, I had lived in HDB and also non HDB housing. I remember long ago and seemingly forever I pay more for conservancy and parking than my parents at Braddell View. Then I lived in Pine Grove and I paid more too as it was not managed privately. I parked in open spaces but Braddell View had two MSCPs.
The PAP could only make others look bad at the expense of themselves because they are hypocrites. Pay And Pay make suckers out of us for the larger nebulous concept of nation. How it is that their policies are good for country but bad for the people? Don't support the PAP unless you are also sure who the sucker is. If you still don't get it, look at China. Sure incomes are rising rapidly there but the people to a far greater degree are the suckers. And who were gaining? Are you gaining more than what you put in? How much more?
I am not interested in the WP or the PAP but how other voters feel, think and act. Most important people must learn not to be suckers but even more important be patriots. For this I take my hat off to Chen Show Mao. He didn't need to do what he has done. He didn't even need to choose to be so invisible and take the shit from LKY and the PAP for the greater and longer term good. The PAP doesn't understand or know what he is up to. I could also only make guesses based on his background.
