You have heard yesterday the opposition Workers Party won the by elections at the Singapore Hougang Constituency. It shouldn’t be surprising since they have held the ward for decades. But if you did not know
This Hougang Constituency election is not very different from a defamation lawsuit that the Lee ruling family routinely brings against anyone who criticizes them. You know the verdict even before you stepped into the courtroom! Which is Lee Kuan Yew won and the poor critic lost. And the other thing that is certain is the court damages award. It will be anywhere between 200 to 500 thousand dollars which you cannot pay. The Lee Ruling Family know it and so do you. After that you are history.
These Hougang by elections are no different. Even before the elections took place, the Lee Ruling Family already knew that the opposition man will win. Why, because they want him to win. Let me explain.
From 1966 to 1981
So Lee Kuan Yew decided that it might be a good idea to have some opposition. Not the real type, but the type which will not cause a threat to their power. So to make a long story short, the got rid of the late JB Jeyaretnam who was the real thing, and replaced him with a more acceptable figure, Low Thia Khiang.
At first Low was the only opposition man. Since one sparrow does not make a spring, they decided on Nominated MPS, people whom the Lee Family select and go into Parliament to perform theatrics. In fact some of these characters performed so well, they could have been selected for
So they came up with a more believable idea. The plan was to ask Low to stand at a GRC (Group Constituency) of 6 people at the elections so that now a larger number could get in making their claim of a multi party
So they did exactly that. They decided that Dr. George Yeo, who headed Aljunied GRC should be the fall guy since he was becoming a little too liberal for their liking. The plan went as clockwork. Low with 5 others stood in Aljunied in the 2011 elections. With the necessary surveillance and with a knowledge of exactly how everyone votes in the island, they engineered a victory for Low and his Workers Party.
And now the same thing was engineered for Hougang. Adolf Hitler of Nazi Germany with the technology then available, was the foremost survailled country in the world. Dossiers were kept for everthing and everyone in the country. The Lee Ruling Family with todays advanced technology know exactly how many people there are, where they work and want their political leanings are. With such extensive personal knowledge of their citizens, they can engineer whatever result that they want. Keeping Hougang with the opposition Workers Party is in the Lee Ruling Family’s interest far more than it is in the Workers Party’s interest.
And in any case these 7 clowns of the Workers Party can’t do anything real for their people. If they did, a defamation action and disqualification from Parliament will be the natural consequence.
These Workers Party characters in Parliament are in fact shamelessly working in the interests of the Lee Ruling Family, not
There is a real opposition politician in
Frankly we might as well go watch the Punch and Judy Show.
