TRE reader tells off s/o JBJ, analyses TCB’s comments

When TRE used a piece by s/o JBJ ranting about Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s comments etc, he was rebuked by a TRE reader

opposition dude:

Kenneth, kindly do stop talking about your dad at every opportunity. You are sounding like a real sore loser. At the very least carve out your own standing amongst the electorate just like how your dad was seen as a fiery match for Lee Kayu.

He then went on to explain why he disagreed with Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s comments that the fixing of PE 2017 would affect the next general election. He makes some valid points:

With that being said, the electorate will forget about the PE when the next GE comes. This is because PAP has screwed us all over so many times the electorate votes based on the frustration level on the ground at that point in time.

Just compare and contrast the last 2 GEs. The overcrowdedness on the island led to PAP’s lowest vote share, even the PAP admitted it. It wasn’t the raising of GST or lack of freedom of speech or CPF or even high BTO prices, ministers’ pay, lack of accountability or any of the issues frequently raised here on TRE.

Then you look at 2015. The PAP CLAIMS to have solved all the unhappiness for 2011 but we all know the island is even more crowded than before. But see what gratitude gets you, in this case a 10% increase in votes. Even the PAP says they were stunned because we all know that they didn’t do a proper job on the immigration issue.

Now, if the PE alone can decide PAP’s fate then I would be very surprised. For one thing, I would ask myself why the PAP were not reduced in number when the price of so called public housing made us pay up to a 35 year home loan, why there were still so many of them in parliament when GST was raised from 3% to 7% and why voters did jack when the donkeys’ pay was raised 20% in the 90s.

My take on Dr Tan’s comments: Will Oppo parties step up to the mark and score?

 

  1. Frankly sinkies already couldn’t be bothered with PE by Oct 2017.

    If GE was to be held tomorrow, PAPies would get at least 65%.

    And PAPies know it. Hohoho!!! Merry Xmas!!!

  2. unlike his dad and brother, kenneth was not trained as a barrister and could not match their speaking skills; how good an organizer he is I am not sure; when he formed RP, there was much initial success with many people with political potential like nicole seah, jeanette cheong, even two ex-scholars, joining him; we can speculate what lesson kenneth might have learned when they all left and went to nsp, but he cannot just blame PAP for his own troubles, nor just keep repeating his old messages

    • He should never have entered politics. He cannot look people in the eye. Rumoured to have aspergers: I know someone who worked in same bank as him.
