Waz the point Mad Dog? Where are the Wankers?

At a working lunch hosted by the SDP this afternoon, several opposition parties came together to explore the possibility of working closer together to present a unified front at the next elections.

The SDP also took the opportunity to propose that presidential candidate Dr Tan Cheng Bock help lead the effort in building such a coalition. Those present welcomed the move.

“With his experience and leadership,” Dr Chee Soon Juan said, “the SDP is confident that Dr Tan will be able to lead the effort.”

The former People’s Action Party MP, who attended the meeting as an observer, said: “If you want me to lead, then we must think of country first. If we go in, we must go in as a team.”

The WP are right to avoid this Coalition of the Losers and I’m sad Dr Tan associates himself with this bunch of losers and scoundrels. Think No, Lim Tean hasn’t absconded and Silence of Goh Meng Seng

The Alliance of Hope is different. Its predecessor won more votes than BN in the previous GE, and in 2004 deprived BN of two-thirds majority. Here the PAP won big time in 2015, after a bad showing in 2011 (Only 60% of the popular vote and lost Aljunied GRC lah). Remember the PAP almost recaptured Aljunied.

I agree with the views here: https://www.facebook.com/DerekdaCunha/posts/10157224801363797

All six of these “parties” (here “parties” is used loosely) mentioned, plus the SDP, represent political deadweight.

I respect Dr Tan Cheng Bock. But mixing with this particular crowd – which in the pecking order of non-PAP parties rank as 3rd, 4th and 5th raters — will not do anything for his reputation. He will simply be tarnishing his reputation. He should display a bit more discernment. If he intends to stand at the next GE, he should do so as an independent or as part of a team of independents contesting a GRC.

I have analysed elections in Singapore long enough to know that you cannot underestimate the Singapore voter’s visceral distaste for a number of opposition personalities. Even a severely underperforming PAP will not move a segment of the electorate to vote against it if the alternative is truly 3rd, 4th and 5th raters.

I’ll be less polite. Think Mad Dog Chee and Goh Meng Seng when u read

you cannot underestimate the Singapore voter’s visceral distaste for a number of opposition personalities.

Lim Tean will be joining them if he doesn’t carry out his promises (Remind Lim Tean, it’s December) despite raising money from the public.

  1. TCB is no dummy. He knows most of the current bunch are unvoteable. In his own words “But I think some may also need to stand down and serve from the backroom if it is for the good of the country”.

    And in the same rebuttal to Cunha, TCB mentioned Paul Tambyah as example of 1st rate opposition. Problem is —- I don’t see Tambyah in the group photo?!?

    Basically it’s just TCB doing his rounds of moral support for opposition, just like how he showed face at oppo rallies in the last GE & went round shaking hands with oppo candidates.

  2. I think some of these oppo party honchos has yet to realise the implication of what TCB is saying about needing to stand down. He ain’t stupid and it will at least makes it interesting.

  3. TCB cant save this coalition of opportunists. He is no LKY or some great hero. His halo effect not big enough to swing the electorate decisively.
