Election manifesto of Spastics League?

In Uncategorized on 13/09/2019 at 10:59 am

Many moons ago, I wrote My predictions about Spastics’ League, predicting that Mad Dog’s attempts to manipulate Dr Tan Cheng Bock to unite the SDP and a bunch of injun chiefs without injuns (Think Lim Tean, Meng Seng, Desmond Lim, s/o JBJ and that ex-convict whose name eludes me) into a credible Oppo coalition was bound to fail. Wasn’t I right? Trumpets please. Oh, I also wrote False Hopes: Coalition of the Spastics.

Well, recently I read in TRE the following which I commend to Mad Dog as the manifesto on which his Coalition of the Spastics should fight the next GE.

What do you think?

In lieu of a coalition of opposition parties

As the GE is well nigh upon us but no coalition of the opposition parties seems to be in sight, let me propose a solution.

I will list here below what I feel are nine important policies that voters want.

I propose that opposition party leaders:
– sign on to at least six of them,
–declare which they are signing on to, and
–promise to form a coalition government with all other opposition parties that also sign on to at least six of these policies.

To be implemented in the first 100 days of a new coalition government, these policies are as follows:

1) All HDB flats will be turned into freehold assets.
2) All CPF monies will be withdrawable at or after the age of 55 years.
3) All citizens will have free public transport on MRT, LRT, and buses.
4) All citizens will have free medical care under a National Health System.
5) All citizens will have a guaranteed minimum wage.
6) All citizens will pay no GST.
7) All ministers and all civil servants will have salaries that cannot exceed $300,000.00 a year.
8) All vehicles will no longer require COEs.
9) All GRCs will be disbanded in favour of only SMCs by the following GE.

I also want a free trip to Disneyland. Also a house in Nassim Road.
Before you promise all this tell me how it can be done please.

Sensible chap opposition dude      

Getting the opposition parties to agree to certain issues like the cost of living and the number of aliens being let in is easy, the hard part is getting them all to agree on how these issues should be tackled.

Party A might want to do things a certain way and party B another way. A and B don’t agree with each other so therefore no coalition. And WP does not want to be buddies with anyone else so that is another problem.

Now suppose SDP and PSP really do form a coalition and they are successful in being voted in. They might, in the long term, get other opposition parties to join their coalition and continue on from there.

The best solution now is for a strong enough opposition to challenge PAP for half the seats so as to at least force PAP into a coalition government. The kiasees definitely would prefer another party to run the place rather than a coalition because to them, a coalition always has the chance of being split up should they not agree.

Problem is that there are so many wannabe MPs (Think P Ravi, Lim Tean, Goh Meng Seng, Tan Kin Lian etc etc.) Going by the chop system Lim Tean will have no wear to piss. Even if all the seats are contested, not all the known spastics can stand. And Lim Tean will not be able to contest if Tan Jee Say’s gang decides to fight in all the areas they last contested. Remember you first heard this first

Btw, I don’t think Dr Tan Cheng Bock and his dwarfs will have a problem finding a GRC to contest despite the chop system. The injunless injun chiefs won’t dare deny him a GRC to contest. They know in a three way fight, they’ll lose their deposits. But in turn, he knows, he can’t compete in areas where the SDP and WP have marked out.

As to only testing half the seats, in 1991 this only happened because Saint JBJ couldn’t find another bicycle thief or another ex-Woodbridge patient to stand.

  1. Atans, as it stands what is your prediction on this GE outcome? (Which seats will flip to PAP or opposition)

    Also are you seriously thinking voting PAP this time round?

  2. did the harvard university economics professor son of lee hsien yang co-author with “andy hur” ?
