WP 's Sylvia Lim opposes improvement to our penal code!!!

"...to build a Democratic society based on justice and equality..."
....Singapore Pledge


"All Animals Are Equal, But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others."
....Animal Farm



The day she got involved in local politics I knew there will be trouble for the blissful minds of Singaporeans. Here she goes again....questioning the selfless intent of a govt that only acts in the interest of Singaporeans. The PAP govt wants to put up several amendments to our Penal Code for the good of Singaporeans....and Sylvia Lim is trying to stop their good work. Lets look through the amendments and I'm sure you will agree with me that it is done for our own good.

One of the amendments is to extend the maximum jail sentence of people who assault their MPs to 20 years. Yes, if you find your water supply cut because you can't afford to make ends meet...maybe due to the GST increase, please don't take it out on your MP. He has done everything he can for you already ...please remember the 20 yrs jail term. I'm sure this amendment has something to do with the MP getting assaulted by a jobless man several months ago. We simply cannot have ordinary Singaporeans take out the frustration on our elite MPs who have been selected to serve us. 20 yrs jail for hitting an MP. ...have you ever wondered what happens if you, an ordinary Singapore, gets assaulted?.....Basically, nothing much...you might also have problem filing a police report. All this is consistent with the belief that without good leaders Singapore will collapse, so what is a few extra laws to protect our elite MPs and preventing Singapore from collapse. Anyone who can't appreciated their all out effort to serve us and tremendous sacrifices they made deserved to be jailed. I suggest they have even more laws in the future to protect our MPs - jail for insulting their intelligence....and jail for criticising their outstanding parliamentary speeches......we simply cannot afford to have ordinary Singaporeans undermine the credibility of our esteemed leaders.

I'm so glad they are increasing the jail term for illegal assembly from 6 months to 2 years. What is illegal assembly? In Singapore a police permit is required for all assemblies of five or more people. That is why my friend always walk with his two daughters while his wife keeps her distance walking with their son. With the new longer jail term, I think it is safer for them to go to different places during the weekend. The alternative is to apply for police permits like most Singaporeans do when they meet their friends for movies or dinner. The illegal assembly law is important to make sure that Singaporeans gather for legal purposes only. 2 years jail will encourage Singaporeans to be more disciplined when it comes to applying for those permits. With Chinese New Year coming, Singaporeans simply cannot afford to forget about checking with the authorities whether their family reunion is legal or not.

I'm so glad the PAP govt of Singapore actively thinks of ways to improve our penal code. It is a real shame that the troublemakers from Worker's Party are trying to stop these advances that will help build our democratic society based on justice and equality.

I can't believe any modern society has such laws. This is like in imperial china - offend the king chop head off.

Special treatment under the law for MPs? ...MP already gain so much as elites now even the law is tweak to favor them.

If anyone has been to a meet-the-MP session...most likely not well-to-do people who needs genuine help, you will observe that the MP is always flanked by crowds of people (those grassroots) who are there to suck up to him. When you really get to meet the MP, you will realize that he only pays you lip service and only pushes the pen.....he can't help you much...what's so special about a pen-pusher?

maybe we need a law for MPs who cannot help get 20 years jail

not only the MPs, the whole civil service is literally stocked with incompetent staffs who can't think and act outside the legal domain in which they are confined.

the flipside to legalism is the deliberate erection of an invisible prison to contain, control and configure behaviors to a singular mindless objectivity.

it is slavery reinvented and made palatable.

how much education does one need to be useful citizens really?or rather should we ask, how much more money can we make from cumbersome education(beyond a certain point)? or maybe, how many average citizens would enjoy stuffing their minds with useless knowledge to validate one's existence and value in society?

dont know about you,i see a lot of hungry stomachs and souls with heads full of hotair!

Oh goodness, 20 years for hitting MP. Singapore is definitely a country under despotism, nepotism and cronyism. There is no sense of equality and humility among the ruling class at all.

oh more unidli sinkawhorean systems being put up with impunity... why, we must travel far & wide to spread the tales of such a special place... ok enough of talk, how can one move to another location for the rest of their lives, so as to regale these tales to others ?

Seems to me those MPs in white are so fearful of the masses that they need to be mollycoddled. No wonder this country's ruling politics is in complete shambles.

That is nothing new. I mean, in Canada you get stiffer jail times and fines if you strike a police officer, probation officer, prosecuting lawyer and judge. Idea being that these are the individuals that are put in charge of enforcing laws and punishments and are open to more retribution. Our politicians dont have protection to that degree on the grounds that our politicians are people put into power by the people, for the people, and do it with decent pay and look at helping the common citizen, not screwing them over. Singapore obviously has added politicians to the part of punishment and crime enforcement. After all, politicians there seem to have less idea on how to help the people and are not hired by the people for the people, but more in the lines of hired by the gov't to keep the people under control.

So, why shocked and complain people? this is the gov't that you have chosen to represent you. Dont blame the hammer when the hammer hits the thumb.

You are not intelligent enough to write a critique on something you obviously do not understand.
