Truth is there are no old people in Hougang & Potong Pasir.....


The govt will be spending millions to make public housing estates barrier-free because the Singapore population is ageing. The programme will be largely (95%) funded by the Ministry of Nation Development using taxpayers' money.
.
Only estates that voted for PAP will be upgraded. Some of you may be alarmed...but don't worry there is good reason for this. The PAP is a govt of high integrity determined to build a inclusive society. The PAP will not stoop so low to make the aged in Potong Pasir and Hougang suffer just to gain power. The fact is there are coincidentally very few old people in places that vote for the opposition, so they don't really need these facilities. People in Hougang & Potong Pasir also pay tax so it will be unjust to deny them the funding if they needed it.
.
The PAP does not engage in pork barrel politics that destroyed and divided many societies. It will not take unjust actions against citizens just because they have alternative ideas. The reason why many Singaporeans post their ideas anonymously on the Internet is not out of fear of unjust actions against them but because they are shy.

yeah, this upgrading for pappy only wards is the epitome of pork barrel politics. i swear i will forever vote for non-pappy until opposition wards get their fair share...

oops what did i just say? i mean upgrading for pappy only wards is the right way cos pappies are obligated to protect their subjects and interests. oppo wards, by voting for oppo, show they didn't want upgrading because upgrading is invented by pappies...

Folks, old and young, have already decided they will not be bribed by PAPpies by their promises of estate upgrading. So what if Hougang and Potong Pasir are not barrier-free? Life goes on. May Chiam See Tong and Low Thia Kiang and their likes continue to act like haemorrhoids in the asses of PAPpies.

This is life...whoever holds the power, defines the rules.

This is life...how many Sinkees would vote for opposition upon seeing the upgrading carrot hanging in front of their face?

You cant look at divying of gov't funds like that. I mean, if you look at it like 'only vote for PAP and you will buy our support' then you might consider that corruption in Singapore politics, and as all surveys of the Singaporean people (and words from MM himself) there is NO corruption in Singapore politics. I mean, if you start looking at 'buying votes for upgrading' then you might start to question the million dollar salaries paid to your gov't miniters/leaders. Then once you start doing that, anarchy in the streets caused by mass self awareness of country life. tsk tsk, cant do that...go shopping instead.

saw this article online. First off, I would like to apologize as part of that horrible 'western' culture that has lead your leaders to stop with social welfare. I mean, if we werent so lazy and dispicable, then perhaps your gov't might be willing to help out your elderly. Luckily, they are wise enough to learn from western mistakes and know how to correct human nature and build a stronger community. After all, because of their great minds and wonderful thinking, elderly suicide is down. http://sg.news.yahoo.com/070216/5/singapore258809.html

But, all Singaporeans should listen to the wise PAP leaders and care for your elderly and family members...after all, PAP sure as hell aint gonna do it

Good. Pappy should continue using this double-edged sword - as it will make it doubly hard for its own mp to convince Singaporeans about their sincerity.

The all too clear bottomline is that pap gives only to further its own political gains, not because it wants to build a Singapore nation.
