Roy’s latest research finding?

In Uncategorized on 26/11/2014 at 5:26 am

On Saturday, I walked past the offices of the Elections Department near Middle Road, and seeing the nameplate reminded me of Roy Ngerng and something he wrote in early November.

In a really extremely case of verbal diarrhea where he poured out all his feelings yet again, he wrote: “You really think 60% of Singaporeans voted for the PAP? I reckon it is much lesser. Or would have been.”

At the time, I emailed a few social activists some of whom are close to Roy and highlighted the defamatory nature of these words. I then forgot all about the passage until Saturday.

Yesterday, I saw that Roy had another disvharge of verbal  diarrhea and this morning got round to checking whether the early November post still contained, “You really think 60% of Singaporeans voted for the PAP? I reckon it is much lesser. Or would have been.”

Is this allegation, that in reality less than 60% of voters voted for the PAP and that this fact was kept from S’poreans the result of through research and analysis? As thorough as his research and analysis about our CPF? Remember:

1.On or around 15 May 2014, I, Roy Ngerng Yi Ling, published on my blog (at http://thehearttruths.com/), an article entitled “Where your CPF Money Is Going: Learning From The City Harvest Trial” (the “Article”). I also published links to the Article on my Facebook page (at https://www.facebook.com/sexiespider) and on The Heart Truths’ Facebook page (at https://www.facebook.com/pages/I-want-the-government-and-people-to-work-together-for-Singapores-future/185331834935656).

2.I recognise that the Article means and is understood to mean that Mr Lee Hsien Loong, the Prime Minister of Singapore and Chairman of GIC, is guilty of criminal misappropriation of the monies paid by Singaporeans to the Central Provident Fund.

3.I admit and acknowledge that this allegation is false and completely without foundation.

4.I unreservedly apologise to Mr Lee Hsien Loong for the distress and embarrassment caused to him by this allegation.

5.I have removed the Article and the links to the Article and undertake not to make any further allegations to the same or similar effect.

Or is Roy emulating JBJ and Dr Chee? They were serial defamers of the leaders of the PAP administration. and suffered the consequences, and benefits (not all benefits are monetary). Is Roy trying to follow in their foot-steps?

Well even JBJ and Dr Chee, never ever questioned the integrity of the vote-counting in elections. But here is Roy Ngerng making a statement that any reasonable person can conclude as calling into question the process of vote counting, implying that the the results of elections were fixed* and that this fixing was kept from S’poreans.. Surely this is defaming the PM to whom the Elections Department reports?

What do you think?

Was the defamation “an honest mistake” resulting from said diarrhea discharge? Or the result of solid research, as solid as his CPF findings? Or an attempt to goad the PM into suing him again?

What do you think?

Whatever the case may be, unlike Dr Chee and JBJ, he can use new media to raise funds and gauge his support. Maybe taz why he’s so garang and quai lan. He’s using Other People’s Money.

One Tan Kin Lian tried to do the same by asking S’poreans 100% fund his presidential campaign (including his deposit). But most S’poreans refused to help out someone who was animism for S$1m a yr (he promised to keep only half of the then presidential salary, donating $1m to charity), but didn’t want to put up his own money. Unfortunately for him, S’poreans refused to give him a free ride. He lost his deposit, incidentally.

Well let’s see how much longer S’poreans are willing to let Roy get a free lunch. Btw, tomorrow, I’ll post on how SingTel is helping itself to a free lunch.

*I think George Yeo and his ladies from Hell wished it were so.

  1. If lhl & his greedy gangs who paid themselves the world highest salaries can ‘verbal diarrhea’ ever so often, I think it is fair game for any one else to do same same.

    Just because lhl is not use to being told off by anybody his entire life does not mean nobody can tell him off.

    It’s not only lhl has the rights to verbal diarrhea, every singaporean has that rights too.

  2. I doubt Roy made an “honest mistake”. He intended to make the allegation. However, I do take issue with your statement that JBJ and CSJ were “serial defamers”. If you read up on the cases that the PAP leaders have won so far, you will find that there were certain cases where opinions on the verdicts may vary. http://utwt.blogspot.sg/2012/02/history-of-defamation-suits-and-other.html

    • Gd point. But the early cases against them were really clear cut. I had the impression that they wanted to defame. The later cases against both had some convoluted reasoning.

  3. The way I read it, it was Roy suggesting there were many Singaporeans who did not cast votes. In 2011, more than 12% of voters were excluded in walkover constituencies/GRCs. That’s more than 300k votes including spoilt votes which were voided. It was worse in previous elections, with the ratio hovering around 50%.

    I am 36 and have not had the opportunity to exercise my vote since the 2001 elections.

  4. The PAP has, over my lifetime, consistently discouraged people from entering politics unless these individuals were card-carrying PAP members.

    Blame? I won’t use that word. But the incumbent government is solely responsible for our political climate today.

    One man one vote, yes. But it comes with plenty of strings attached. I find our island politics bizarre.
