The GE Story in Pictures

hahahaahahah a picture tells a thousand words they say. Well the GE pictures at least say more than one thing.

Stop the PAP! WTF PAP, get better volunteers or maybe these volunteers are actually opposition moles!

THOR THOR THOR! Those are great WP merchandising!

OMG look at that poor kid with hands around Danny. What is Danny the Pedobear doing to that kid!

The Brawl Begins

So fun! All SMCs and GRCs contested. Except for Tanjong Pagar GRC which had "excused voting" because the bunch of independent clowns apparently arrived too late according to the media's version of the fiasco. Old Man Lee, all alone now, probably wanted a contest since he has nothing left to live for and a street fight at his home ground which he has held on since 1955 would be his last hurrah. The exertion of rallies might physically weaken the founder of 1965 Singapore though. The poor disappointed old guy looked like he was going to keel over the railing when he addressed the crowd about his walkover and that his opponents were pussies by pretending to come late and were thus deliberately self-disqualified.

On pulling out, PAP candidate Steve Tan bowed out for whatever personal reasons. He had cold feet probably. Nicole Seah the chio plucky NSP gem, obviously on the brink of burning out from her expression in the "why contest Marine Parade GRC" vid, is still at it while the fresh Steve Tan chickened out? WTF. The Online Citizen is telling the PAP that they must explain his pull-out? TOC clown. Why the fuck cares? There is CPF, housing, transport, healthcare to grill the PAP about. Not why one pussy PAP candidate pressed "eject".

Low Thia Khiang is heading over to Aljunied to settle old scores. The WP is doing a proper all-out Normandy this time as their team has Sylvia Lim and that over-achiever Chen Show Mao. The other 2 WP nobody candidates, frankly, are just there to make up the numbers to contest in the GRC. If I was George Yeo, I would think about a new career after May 7 as the chances of him losing his PAP seat in Aljunied are...high. PM Lee better think of who is going to be the next Foreign Minister also if he is smart to plan ahead. However, PM Lee has other things on his mind like whether the Reform Party kamikaze squad is going to have a better margin of the votes compared to the young punk WP squad that contested in Ang Mo Kio GRC in 2006.

Hougang is now defended by Yaw Shin Leong, a baby-faced WP old-timer. Hougang is a WP fort and even if you put a donkey in a blue shirt in that Teochew village, the loyal WP voters there would still vote it as their MP. Yaw can again decide to vote for PAP in 2011 like he did in 2006, what a loser, and he can still be in parliament after May 7. His career as a Hougang MP is confirmed, double confirmed, plus chop. However, whether he can have Low's charisma and personal touch as a Hougang MP is a big question mark. On determinism, poor Desmond Choo from PAP is obviously going to get smacked left right centre as he heads into Hougang to try snatch it away from WP. We know it is a lost cause, Desmond and the PAP also know it. Sorry Desmond, looks like you won't be a MP after May 7, you should have asked PM Lee if you could have hid in a GRC so that you can enter parliament via the backdoor.

Slime, Smears and Slurs

 Oh-oh, Vivian, Vivian, you can't run far and fast away enough from this!

So what if Vincent is bent, LOL that he couldn't straight during the CNA debate on TV should be a clue that he is a buttman. But low blows aside, oops, couldn't resist a bad pun, so what if Vincent is fucking gay. The minister with a girly name stuck his head out to give Vincent a bad name but in the end, it boomerang back into his face, cracking his bigot head.

The PAP perhaps felt a bit pissed that their candidates like Tin Pei Ling, Foo Mee Har and Janil Puthucheary were tarred and feathered by the internet louts. Boo hoo hoo. Whether members of the opposition parties took part in the public ridicule of these PAP candidates, well, probably as this is politics and the opposition would try to get back anyway they can without being caught. But Vivian the blood-will-shed-if-bartop-dancing-allowed minister made a bad move by going down that dirty road and started openly a smear campaign even before nomination day. The PAP lost even more credibility.

Reminds me of 2006 when James Gomez threw the first blow about the PAP chucking away his nomination papers. The PAP flogged the dead horse and attacked James Gomez's character even after he apologised and when the issue was stale.

The PAP could have stayed on the high moral ground like what old Wooden Chok Tong wanted and be the big man, ignoring the slime thrown at them from the internet hooligans. But no, Vivian couldn't resist it and had to lash out at SDP' Vincent Wijeysingha. Aiyoh Vivian. Why like that?

Why Lim Boon Heng Cried (Real Reason)

 Because that minister in the prime minister's office, realised he is FINALLY losing his cushy job as he is going into "retirement"! Not the supposed hurtful groupthink allegations.

Ah Lim is not leading any ministry and is one of the lobos in the PMO, ministers without portfolio they say. No portfolio yet still has a big fat pay check of more than $1 million annually even! WTF! At least the other ministers get paid to do a bad job. Lim Boon Heng got paid despite not having a job! BTW the other 2 freeloading ministers without real jobs in the PMO are Lim Swee Say and Lim Hwee Hua (although to be fair, she is also 2nd minister Transport and Finance).

Epiphany moment! All the freeloader ministers in the PMO are Lims! I bet my always-never-enuff Grow and Share bribe that Lim Hng Khiang Minister for Trade and Industry is so very jealous that the other cabinet ministers who are Lims got an easy way out.

Sissy PAP minister sobbing as he lost his well paid day job sitting on his ass

PM Claimes No GST Hike after GE

So said PM Lee Hsien Loong according to today's ST. Let me quote this very hard to believe claim,

I very much doubt that. Unless we go wild on our spending plans, then of course we will run out of money, and then you will have to raise GST. But if we have prudent budgets and we are careful in our plans, and if we grow the economy, I think we should be in good shape.
Excuse me Mr PM, I find it hard to believe that the PAP government would not raise GST like what it did after the 2006 election. This was what the PM said months after the PAP won that election.

"It will give us precious extra resources to implement social programmes like Workfare later on. Our aim is to help the lower income groups and the elderly, not to increase their burdens. When we implement the GST increase, it's not just the GST increase, it's the package which will fully offset the impact of the GST increase and begin to strengthen the social safety nets and tilt the balance in favour of the low income groups - we will not just raise the GST but we will have a comprehensive offset package,
The PAP would increase GST to 9% or higher from the the 7% now after the election - it is just a matter of when. To have a moral high ground, they would again cite the reason that the government needs more money to help the less privileged in Singapore and that money has to come from GST.  In 2009, GST collected was close to $7 billion and the total tax revenue was more than $36 billion. Hence, GST formed a fat 20% of the overall money pocketed by the government. So, my point? Let's see if the PAP goes back on its words.

CNA Debate and Don't Trust Any of Them

Anybody, instead of going clubbing and hanging out with friends, watched the CNA debate on Sat night where PAP, SPP, SDA, WP and SDP all got together to trade blows? Then you are like loser me, wasted one good night to party.

Lina Chiam from SPP really not prepared and cannot make it, tripping over her words and ideas. Krrrrh spit. Josephine from PAP was giving some bullshit we are all writers of The Singapore Story - yeah right, and PAP is the editor and in the end put in and take out what they please. Clear phlegm in my throat again and spit. Gerald from WP had good ideas, but damn nerd and boring. I can imagine him as a new PAP candidate. Nazem from SDA was super hopeless, neither had ideas nor charisma and the worst of the lot.

The two who talked the most were Tharman from PAP and Vincent from SDP. Both balding. Both Indian. I think being balding makes one argue better. Or is it Indian? The duo were the most yaya and smooth talking speakers. Don't take what they say at face value and read their body language to know what goes on in their minds. Words can lie but the body doesn't.

Tharman sneakily kooning while pretending to read notes! :)

Which one is the crooked politician you don't trust with our money? No, you think I meant finance minister Tharman right? It is Vincent, he can't even sit straight, how to trust? :)
 Vincent even took out his SDP book to sell during the TV debate! Snakeoil salesman! :)

If this is the quality of election debates on TV Singaporeans have to expect from politicians who want to woo us to rule over us, we are screwed, so very screwed.
