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.
