PAP MP resigns in ignominy
After having set Facebook alight yesterday, this is front page news this morning. The man made a big mistake aka Michael Palmer before him. He saw and didn't learn. There was enough time as his relationship with another PAP activist Wendy Lim began about six months ago. We are more interested in the larger picture though.
Well said Evelyn. In other words we will always be less trusting toward the PAP than our parents did. We will always wonder what lurks in dark corners and behind closed doors which we have no access. It also means that we expect and rank transparency very highly.
Many probably share Beldin's feeling about this as well. We will never know until a skeleton fell out of a cardboard accidentally left opened. You would have thought in private the party must have severely warned its MPs since Michael Palmer soiled their reputation. Sure we cannot expect Palmer to be the last but we would appreciate there is a lot more time between Palmer and David Ong, like from one generation to another as every generation often need to learn old lessons anew. We are all disappointed.
David Ong you messed up and that is your problem. You have gravely wronged the woman's husband and also your own family. You were a fool to have behaved this way. It would have gone much better for you if this was a one time indiscretion and never happened again, but you kept up as long as you weren't caught. Who else from the PAP is like you doing the same or other shameful acts away from the public glare? Only time will tell. For now will the secretary general privately or publicly warn its MPs and party members to live up to their whiter than white reputation?
