See what the Opposition is doing in Singapore!!!


It takes someone like Mas Selamat to bring our nation together. Yes, he (his poster) is everywhere and everyone in Singapore knows his name. A school kid might not know who our education minister is but he will know Mas Selamat for sure. He is someone every Singaporean is looking for. We are making great progress, it has been 3 weeks and the entire nation is still very focussed on this task. Everyone knows the importance of catching this limping terrorist.....everyone except the members of our Opposition, to be more precise members of the SDP.

They are going to conduct a rally against price hikes known as "Tak Boleh Tahan" outside the parliament house on 15 Mar 2008 at 2pm. I've often warned you about the harm the opposition brings to this country and they are at it again. With the escape of Mas Selamat, the entire country has forgotten about the transport fare hike, increase in utilities rate, GST hike, taxi fare hike, ERP hike etc. .We are busy looking for Selamat and have accepted that those hikes are for our own good. Now these SDP chaps want to rekindle these old issues at a time when we all should be looking for Mas Selamat. I'm sure they will distort the facts to say the govt has unnecessarily burdened Singaporeans with price increases at a time when it was having a massive budget surplus when Singaporeans were already struggling with inflation in food and energy. I warn you not to be seduced by those simplistic one dimensional arguments that members of our opposition often put up. We all know the govt has our interest in its heart - the bus fare increase to ensure good quality of service, the ERP hike is to prevent congestion, and the taxi fare hike is to ensure that taxis are available when we need them. We should all be fearful of the day when there are no more price hikes because it will be a day when our beloved govt has its power to hike prices for our good stolen away by the opposition. Beware of the opposition in Singapore!!!....

Mr Tan,

What a timely posting to remind us of the main issue at hand, that is to recapture Selamat.

Let's hope the Minister in charge of plotting his recapture will be duly rewarded if the operation is a resounding success.

Poor opposition. First they are blamed for not exposing the weaknesses of the detention centre to prevent Selamat's escape. Now they are blamed for trying to distract Singaporeans from focusing on searching for Selamat No wonder Chiam See Tong had a stroke.
