Another Oppo slate and candidate that deserve to win

Singaporeans First (SingFirst) believe they have a fighting chance of overturning the People Action’s Party (PAP) in Tanjong Pagar Group Representation Constituency (GRC) in the upcoming general elections.

SingFirst secretary-general Tan Jee Say and led psychiatrist Dr. Ang Yong Guan, 60, sales executive Melvyn Chiu Weng Hoe, 36, media consultant Fahmi Rais, 48, and market risk manager Chirag Desai, 38, to file nomination papers at Bendemeer Primary School on Tuesday morning. The latter three are first-time candidates.L-R: Chirag Desai, Fahmi Rais, Tan Jee Say, Dr. Ang Yong Guan and Melvyn Chiu from the SingFirst team contesting Tanjong Pagar GRC.

Given there are two RI boys, I can only wish the team well.even if one of them is TJS who can come across as an opportunist, and entitled aristocrat (he’s from a poor family but was a scholar) embittered that he isn’t feasting at the same high table as Ah Loong

Seriously, if PM and S’poreans want Oppo Tigers not mice, Dr Ang and TJS should fit the bill, alongside Dr Chee and Dr Paul. Juz because Dr Chee and TJS are flawed characters doesn’t mean that they’ll be ineffective in Parly. Saint Show Mao did bugger all in parly, other than affirming the status of the PAP as “emperor’ https://atans1.wordpress.com/2011/10/30/bad-analogy-chen-show-mao-2/.

At this stage of our political development, we need demagogues like Chee and TJS and good wingmen like Ang and Paul. The inbuilt majority of the PAP protects us from the what the lazy, cybernuts from TRELand want: everything free.

As both Dr Ang and TJS are around my age (60), its nice to see that there are oldies who still want to change the world.

And SingFirst has some interesting policy ideas https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/spending-more-on-poor-middle-class-not-juz-cause-ge-coming/

I took this survey prepared by some Yale-NUS students on which parties think like the voter in question ushttp://www.electionaire.info/SDP%20(Singapore%20Democratic%20Party)/91.14/RP%20(Reform%20Party)/82.9/WP%20(Worker’s%20Party)/80.67

My score
SingFirst 72.5
WP 72
SDP70.5
Not a big surprise in my case, but which maybe explains why I’m so offended by the WP’s defence on its monitoring of AHPETC’s managing agent and standing up on the issues in parly.

So I wish these guys well.

And let’s not forget this feisty lady battling the odds in Mountbatten when she could be taking things easy. Three of her four kids are working, hubbie’s got money and she’s a lawyer. If I were her, I’d be spending my days playing mahjong and shopping.
