Someone by the name of Ajay posted some analysis of the Oppo parties that’s worth a read http://www.tremeritus.com/2016/01/21/what-chee-soon-juan-got-right-in-ge2015-and-what-the-minor-parties-got-wrong/
This bit had me in stitches
TR Emeritus’s reader Oxygen mentioned that KJ is a good candidate and has intellectual thoughts which can add value in parliament. That may be true. But the reality is that swing voters do not care to know that. What they see is KJ’s low EQ and lack of personal touch. He was whining so much during the Punggol East by-election about getting a cold, having a short campaign period, having an undemocratic elections department, etc. These actions do not endear him to swing voters. Him scolding voters for voting for PAP after GE2015 was completely unnecessary and implies that they were right not to vote for him. KJ is not doing himself any favours by not being humble.
Where is he between elections anyway? Is he walking the ground and sitting at coffee shops, meeting residents and opening up to them? Where is his grit and determination? Yes, his accent makes it hard for people to relate to him, but he can overcome that if he works hard enough on the ground in between elections. He cannot just show up for the GE and hope that the protest vote is enough for him to win. Hope is not a strategy!
To the above, I’d add that people who meet s/o JBJ usually remark afterwards that they have problems making eye contact with him when talking to him.
Not only is this annoying, it makes for an uncomfortable conversation.
I’ve said to these people that this doesn’t necessarily mean that he thinks that talking to them is a waste of his time (but it could be). It seems he is very uncomfortable making eye contact ( a neurological issue) But, Liars are more likely to make eye contact. So at least he’s an honest, sincere man even if he might have an EQ of a Yahoo.
The u/m joke is even more true of Meng Seng and of s/o JBJ, even though their wives are not S’porean and don’t reside here and hence don’t vote.
And they are trying to tell us S’poreans how to vote, despite having their families overseas? That’s being more arrogant than the PAP. What stakes do Meng Seng and s/o JBJ have in S’pore’s continued well-being? A big fat zero.
What does it tell us about their supporters? That they are super daft: any ass except a PAP ass.

SDA Candidate Joke:
January 7, 2016 at 1:57 pm (Quote)
A dejected SDA candidate trudges home after GE 2015.
“So, Ah Kow, how many votes did you get?” asks his wife.
“Two,” he responds.
She slaps him hard across the face.
“What was that for?” Ah Kow asks.
“You have a mistress, now do you!!?” shouted his wife.
