The dumb PM never failed to sound stupid......again...
Govt has always been working with S'poreans to improve lives: PM
CNA 24 JAN 2013
SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong says the government has always been working with Singaporeans to improve their lives and that the ruling party, through successive generations, has always kept the people's interests at heart.
He was speaking at the People's Action Party's (PAP) rally for Punggol East by-election on Thursday night.
Joining candidate Dr Koh Poh Koon in his final rally for the campaign, Mr Lee urged voters to consider carefully what the by-election is about.
He stressed that the by-election is about choosing the right person with the heart and abilities to serve.
The by-election is also about supporting a good government that will serve Singaporeans and their family. It is also a vote for a better life.
Mr Lee stressed that by working together, the PAP government has transformed Singaporeans' lives.
One example is Punggol, which has been totally transformed from pig farms, kampongs and dirt roads to the Punggol 21 Plus and the award winning Punggol Waterway, he said.
And this is the same all over Singapore, said the Prime Minister.
He stressed that what Singapore has achieved no other country has done and this was done together with Singaporeans working together with successive PAP governments.
Mr Lee also refuted the opposition's accusations that the PAP has changed. He said successive PAP governments, from Mr Lee Kuan Yew to Mr Goh Chok Tong to his leadership team, have had to change policies with the times.
But the party's fundamental ideals have not changed, neither has its goal to help the low-income, elderly and the middle-class.
For the elderly, Prime Minister Lee emphasised that they had helped build Singapore together and that the government will not forsake this generation.
He stressed that the government will always stay on the side of Singaporeans and continues to maintain high standards of integrity.
He went on to explain that another thing that has not changed in Singapore is that the PAP still maintains high standards of integrity.
One aspect of this is honesty, and the PAP has always been honest with Singapore, said Mr Lee.
Another example of integrity is how the party handled embarrassments and mistakes, and one example was the resignation of the former Speaker of Parliament, Michael Palmer.
The Prime Minister recounted that when Mr Palmer offered to resign, he accepted and handled the matter transparently and openly and hence the Punggol East by-election.
Mr Lee once again apologised for putting residents through another election but added that the way the PAP had handled the matter was completely different from the way the Workers' Party had handled the Yaw Shin Leong affair in Hougang when the former MP went missing in action.
The Prime Minister conceded that nobody is perfect and certainly not the PAP.
He said the party makes mistakes and lapses from time to time but it admits to its mistakes and shortcomings and did its best to set things right and work with Singaporeans to do better.
Mr Lee said that is how the party has maintained its reputation for so long and that is how it must uphold the integrity of the system in future.
So the Prime Minister stressed that the question to ask is: what will Singapore be in 10 to 20 years and the kind of leaders the country wants - honest leaders who will explain the challenges and work with the people to overcome them or those who make empty promises and leave it to others to get the job done.
Mr Lee said the country needs to develop a capable and committed leadership for Singapore with good MPs to represent the people and constructive politics to tackle the country's challenges together.
Mr Lee urged Singaporeans to continue to support the PAP.
"The People's Action Party has not changed its purpose and what's its purpose? Action for the People; to act on your behalf, to be your representative, to be your servants, to be your agent to make happen in Singapore what we all would like to see happen. That's the reason why the people join the PAP," he said.
Mr Lee called on Singaporeans to vote for PAP candidate Dr Koh, saying he will be able to contribute significantly.
He said Dr Koh will not only be able to help Punggol East residents, but that he has the potential to do more for Singapore.
As I have said before, I love Election!
It is quite fun to see how diluted the PAP still is and at every election times, they are always caught with their pants down and start to babble nonsense.
Some sound so stupid that you can’t believe these people are actually “leader” of our country.
I tried to watch the PAP rally but I always got so sick at the beginning that I have to stop before I start to hyper ventilate.
So I just watch the news summaries and read from the newspapers what was said at the PAP rally, being a PAP dogs, the main media can’t be reporting wrongly, so I guess they pretty up summarised the rally accurately.
Not surprising Amy Koh was present yesterday trying to really the people. She was the most popular PAP MP from GE 2011 and therefore the PAP hope she can use her celebrity status to bring in more vote.
But what she said last night was of no substance and even made he look stupid.
“Minister of State Amy Khor said that she had seen how Dr Koh interacted with people of all ages. "I believe he's the best person to serve you," she said.
"PAP cares about the elderly - if you look back, special attention has been made to address concerns," she said. She outlined elderly-friendly moves made by the PAP, and added that the example of BMW's employment policies that was cited by the WP was first raised by DPM Tharman.
She also said that under PAP policies, no one will be deprived of medical treatment just because they cannot afford to pay for healthcare.” – TODAY ONLINE 25 Jan 2013-01-25
Here’s my rebut to Amy.
Please tell us how long you know Dr Koh and how many occasion you seen him interacted with people and how you conclude he is the best person to serve punggol east. In fact do you know punggol east? May I remind you Dr Koh is only a 3 weeks PAP member.
If PAP cares about the elder then why our elder still have to work as low salary worker, why they still need to pay for high medical cost and wait half a day to see a doctor at poly clinic?
You say no one will deprived of medical treatment, yes they just have to wait very long to see a doctor and they died before that.
Get some reality check Amy. The best for PAP MP now is to keep quite and don’t look stupid.
Now our dear Hsien Loong…..
You can read from this super long article about his rally speech last night. Gosh he actually spoke for an hour.
Hsing Loong said PAP has always been working with Singaporean to improve their lives.
Rubbish, when you actually listen to us?
When people in the oppositiong ward are put last in lift upgrading and their town council sabotaged?
Do you really care about all Singaporean or only those that voted for you?
If you really care about Singaporean, what is happening to our reserve? Why are you using our money for your own investment and is allow not to report it? Even the late President Ong can’t even get the number. Bloody blood sucker. Still dare to say you are honest to the people.
The fact that the PAP is in power for so long is all these unfair election system. The GRC system, the constant change of the borders of constituency let the PAP had a firm grip of the parliament.
In GE 2011 PAP only won 66.6% of the vote but they control 91% of the parliament!
This certainly is not a correct representation of Singaporean wish in Parliament.
Wake up PAP, do more correct and good things for Singapore and only then you will only lose more votes and stop sounding stupid.
Till then people will vote for those who really care about them.
Praying hard on 26th JAN!
