Their Dream Team

Member of Parliament for Sembawang GRC Ellen Lee has been given the boot to make way for new candidate Amrin Amin and former Aljunied GRC candidate Ong Ye Kung. The lady voters may not take this too kindly, after all the lip service about dearth of women in politics.

The acronym FILTH is for Failed In London, Try Hongkong. But after the puritanical Communists took over, even filth decided to move on. Ong's case is a matter of Failed In Aljunied Try again, anywhere, even in Sembawang. FIAT is defined by Merriam-Webster as "a command or act of will that creates something without or as if without further effort", as in getting into parliament effortlessly through a GRC.

Those who get to stay in the national lottery, Minister for National Development Khaw Boon Wan, Vikram Nair and Lim Wee Kiak, are not exactly crowd pleasers. For starters, senior citizens who have been dumped in Johore have Khaw to thank:
"The monthly cost of keeping a resident in a private nursing home in Singapore, you can stretch it easily to pay at least 2-1/2 months of nursing home care in Johor Baru."

Vikram Nair showboated his fearlessness by drinking water from a storage tank fortified by the floating body of a dead Indonesian maid. But the poison was on his tongue when he likened Worker’s Party (WP) MP Chen Show Mao's proposals, for the 2012 Budget to do more for vulnerable groups, to a Nigerian scam:
"Maybe even the Nigerian scheme required you to put $10,000 upfront. But Mr Chen's scheme does not even require a short-term provision. It is not even a deficit for one year. No, no, no. It will pay for itself because it is an investment."

Lim Wee Kiak is the joker in the pack that makes you wonder what is in the drink when these guys were invited to tea at the Istana:
“If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communications and the Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discusses policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister’s ideas and proposals, hence a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity.”
- May 2011, on debate on ministerial salaries;

“I will quote (from your speech then) one more time. And maybe your hearing aid has to be (turned) up a little bit.”
- Feb 2013, on Workers’ Party’s chief Low Thia Khiang's remarks being taken out of context;

“What you realise from this survey is that majority are not asking them (PRs) to serve exactly the same two years system. In fact, serving the two years is a privilege. I am quite glad that many Singaporeans realised that and that should be a privilege that belongs to Singaporeans.”
- Oct 2013, on doing National Service as a privilege;

“If they didn’t have information, they should just say they have no information, rather than come up with a lot of theories. When they do this, people will think they already have some information.”
- Apr 2014, on Malaysian authorities' handling of the MH370 case.

Teo Chee Hean is thinking aloud that "Singaporeans should do what we can to strengthen that (PAP) team and not weaken it." What do you think?


  1. Dream Team? Maybe in your nightmare. More like the Sleaze Team headed by the slimeball nonpareil. If you want your "dignity" then vote wisely and make this the Khawboy's last roundup.


    1. Make the Khaw into beef with your Votes and the Other Beasts will know their fates in in whose hands.

      Slaughter the Khaw to warn the Monkeys.


    2. OYK seems to be a favourite son. Given a job in NTUC after he was rejected by the voters in the last election. Left NTUC abruptly and was given a top post in Keppel.
      Now trying to get into Parliament by clinging onto the tailcoat of all person, a $8 Malaysian cow who should have hara kiri when the poor financial mismanagement of his CCC came into light.




  2. Just what we need.
    More nodding parrots to agree with Lee in parliament.
    Most highly paid parrots in the world.

  3. The PAP loves to recycle and/or rearrange rubbish: Ong Ye Kung, Gan Thiam Poh, Charles Chong, Koh Poh Koon, Lawrence Wong.

    1. Never mind if the people reject them. We will find a way to get them into Parliament. Its what we think that matters'
      Democracy Singapore style !

    2. “Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.” - Mark Twain

  4. Let us begin with the PM's complete honesty. For a start, why can't he honestly reveal the farking GE date now? Doesn't he farking know that a lot of people need to confirm their travelling plans or schedules to align with the GE date?

    So why can't he be completely honest with us?

    1. "So why can't he be completely honest with us?"

      That's why it's important to vote for a political party and leader who will be transparent and accountable to Singaporeans.
      Then in GE 2020 you won't have this complaint anymore.

      Get to the root of the problem and remove it.

  5. Another FIAT is also Failed in ALjunied Try Tampines.
    All those crocodile tears are just tears for their broken ego and pay checks.
    When you are from MIW party, a failure can be described as a come back kid and recounted as never to let setback defeat you. When you are from an Oppo team, you are described as political failure by a paper general who tell us there are jobs so long as we don't stay here but go overseas.
    A vote for them is a vote against humanity.

  6. Did you hear the cheapshot Teo threw at Sylvia over an Instagram pic at Fengshan that is unbecoming for a person of his status? This guy is the mother of negative campaigners.
    If I were PAP candidate , last person I need is him to help me.
    Look at what happened in the PE and Hougang by elections where he was the his Party chief campaigner there. Their defeated candidates now need to hang on the coattails of others in GRCs.
    TCH should heed the saying people living glasshouses ...
    Or is it people with big noses shouldn't talk so much?

    1. Must be getting desperate to resort to personal attacks on Sylvia Lim and Ah Hia. Didn't Ah Hen say no to negative campaigning? But what Big Nose is essentially telling everyone is that if you don't vote PAP now, you will repent for the next 20 to 30 years. Die lah, we are doomed! And he is upping the ante on LKY who told Aljunied to repent for only 5 years. What do you think?

      Pinocchio Teo and his puppets

    2. You know what I REALLY think?

      As a resident of Pasir-Ris living there the past 16 years, it is ONLY now that we are finally getting a hawker center! It being the biggest GRCs for so many years, what took him so bloody long?

      I recall they (yes, my GRC) lost a total $16m of sinking fund money in the Lehman Bond Investment. Where did the money disappear to?
      Did we recoup it? Did they even explain to us?
      What governance or steps have they taken to prevent similar? All I could remember is a
      Mr Teo Ho Ping who uttered this unbelievable comment:

      //They (residents) should thank the Town Council for working hard to come up with a diversified portfolio to generate income so that residents do not have to fork out more money.//

      In other words, we should be thankful to them for losing our money! Hey, you want to try tell me if the same thing applies to CPF my retirement funds? The last time I checked, GIC scored a C+ in governance and transparency index too. Can I trust you to run my money and the nations 350+billion dollars to ruins, on a 100x larger scale?

      So this Teo guy is no difference from this Lim guy who equates one's networth = one's self worth. Who claims too that Singaporeans should be thankful for the privilege to serve NS.

      I find it hard to swallow Teo's rhetoric. And he should concern less of how others have a hawker center like Fengshan to go and enjoy a nice plate of Orh Luak while his residents have none!

      Can other worthy opposition please come and give this Minister a good kick on his hind?

    3. Focus on converting your friends, family and relatives to vote Opposition.
      60% voted PAP in GE 2011.

  7. "Does not matter what the people think.. we do what is right"

    That is the philosophy.

  8. Failed Utterly, Crony Kleptocracy.
