Minister snatches defeat from the jaws of victory

In Uncategorized on 21/07/2016 at 7:08 am

Hougang Member of Parliament Png Eng Huat in a Facebook post grumbled about how Minister Tan Chuan Jin and his entourage were given expedited clearance at the immigration checkpoint at Tuas.

On Sunday, Mr Tan and a group of residents and volunteers returning from a durian trip to Johor Bahru were able to skip the immigration queue. In a Facebook post on Monday, Mr Png wrote that he too, had been at the checkpoint with his residents after a trip to Desaru, and that they were among other travellers at who had had “to wait patiently for hours for their turn”. Mr Png added that one of his residents was 89 years old and another had been injured during the tour. 

Since, It is the normal practice for ministers on both sides of the Causeway, as well as members of the Malaysian royalty, to be given expedited clearance at the land checkpoints, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said on Tuesday (Jul 19), really Png was barking up (Or is it peeing against) the wrong tree, especially as the minister was in M’sia on official business see below), and not eating durians.
Given the ICA statement, Tan should have taken the high moral ground and asked if Png expected that only he the minister be given expedited clearance, while the rest of the passengers on the bus he was on, cleared the check point like other plebs?
He also had the high moral ground that he was in M’sia on an official visit to the M’sian Deputy Home Affairs Minister’s Hari Raya open house. As a minister on official duty, he would be entitled to a govt car etc, But he took a bus. That also cannot itis?
Png could only sit down and shut up showing that the W in WP stands for “Wankers’ or Worthless.
But the Minister for Social and Family Development Tan Chuan Jin said on Tuesday (Jul 19) that Hougang Member of Parliament Png Eng Huat was “stirring hate and anger” in a Facebook post about how Mr Tan and his entourage were given expedited clearance at the immigration checkpoint at Tuas.

Mana ada standard? m=Mud wrestling with a Wanker? It isn’t even plausible that Png was “stirring hate and anger”e. He’s a Wanker, not a mad dog. And Tan’s an RI boy. Sigh.

Get well soon Heng. The PAP needs you as prime minister. Tan is proving himself as worthless as Kee Chui, another RI boy (OK not a real RI boy: only two yrs, unlike Tan and me).

Seriously, “political success requires mastery of the age’s leading medium”: Reagan knew how to use tv, Trump knows how to use Twitter, but Tan and other PAPpies don’t know how to use social media*.

For that fact alone, those of us, who want an end to the PAP’s hegemony, should be grateful, very grateful.  Likewise we should grateful at the antics of the PAP’s IB in slimimg Png. With friends like Jason chua, the PAP doesn’t need enemies.

Maybe the wheel of fortune is turning against the PAP? I used to say that the PAP was lucky in its enemies. Now even the MPs of the Wankers’ Party are doing more than wanking while smiling at their bank accounts. They are growling.

  1. Problem is that majority of PAPies who go thru the overseas scholarship route have become so accustomed to the high life and lese majeste attitude, even worse for those who are generals & admirals in SAF. It takes a typical PAPpy scholar superhuman effort in character & ego-containment to be able to combine intelligence, rationality, hardness and wisdom to be able to rebut, debate, empathise or apologise as the situation calls for. Right now the default mode for PAPies is: deny, order, talk down, put down.

  2. […] Thoughts of a Cynical Investor: Minister snatches defeat from the jaws of victory – Mothership.sg: Shanmugam writes a letter to complain about the rude and mocking behaviour […]

  3. So you have a bunch of grassroots leaders and RC volunteers who are not on government official business nor are they part of TCJ’s official entourage being expedited through the VIP line, if that’s not abuse of power, I don’t what is.

    • They juz lucky to be in a bus that minister was travelling on. U want them to clear only minister? I think u should f off from this blog if u think like that.

  4. Well, scarly got some Yang Yin or Sinha Shekar types hiding among the grassroots. But with the quality of ICA these days, won’t matter much if they spend 8 hours interrogating or just shoo them thru.

  5. the last time I was anywhere in johor or m’sia was in Oct ’98.
