Tharman stopped running with the hares and hunting with the hounds

Most of the anti-PAP ang moh tua kees who comforted themselves after GE 2015 with the tot that Tharman was really one of them are in mourning.

Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam has come out to clarify his views on the mainstream media and the Bukit Batok by-election, topics which he was asked about during a dialogue with students last week.

Mr Tharman said that contrary to what social media commentators have claimed, he did not agree during the dialogue that the People’s Action Party had engaged in “gutter politics” in the Bukit Batok by-election.

Mr Tharman also elaborated on his comments about the mainstream media, saying he regards the media as “serious-minded, responsible players in an evolving Singapore democracy – helping to take it forward, but airing views in a way that avoids fragmenting society”.

The Deputy Prime Minister was clarifying comments he made at a a dialogue last week, where he was asked by a student about media control and whether he agreed with the “gutter politics” of the ruling party during the 2016 Bukit Batok by-election.

Nothing could be clearer that he’s a Man In White: nothing grey about him.


As to what he said, rather than what he thinks he said:


But some fans are in denial:

Nothing is clarfied. It only blurifies what his standing is. Perhaps he would prefer to keep it that way.

Here’s another angle that his fans in denial can cling onto. Maybe Tharman now thinks after the uproar over a Malay (but i/c saying “Indian”) becoming the PAP’s president, that the PAP is now willing to accept a non-Chinese as PM and that he is positioning himself according. If u believe this, drop me a line. I got some blue cheese from the moon to sell to u.

I’ve commented in the past that the light the ang moh tua kees see coming from Tharman’s ass isn’t the sun; it’s the headlight of the PAP train. So trumpet’s pls for me.


  1. I always have a laugh whenever people highlight certain PAPy individuals as indication of possible “hope” of PAP moving away from the Hard Truths. Having spent enough time with senior PAPies & elites, people shld know that it takes a particular type of character, principles & attitude to be a PAPy and it ain’t being warm & cuddly, or being independent-minded or sticking your neck out for moral justice.
