Overall I give the Opposition an "F" for the terrible performance. It is their fault that Mas Selamat has escaped from the detention center because they failed to warn the police about the security flaws when they were detained there. Our govt has also put the blame on the citizens for being complacent, and the guards for being negligent - the only people who are blameless in the Mas Selamat escape is the govt itself. For that they deserve an "A" for fulfilling their responsibility towards the people.
I've told you guys many times that there is no such thing as "good Opposition" in Singapore they are either breaking our illegal assembly laws like the Chees or under performing in parliament. The PAP has reported that it has shortlisted 100 people to be the "next generation leaders". Like our current PM, good leaders are very hard to find and require extensive searches, and it takes alot of persuasion to get them to agree to become MPs after they are selected. After they are selected, they are bundled into GRCs so they will get into parliament even though the voters don't really know them that well - they don't have to worry because the PAP has already selected them for us. I urge my fellow Singaporeans to be more careful during the next elections and avoid emotive opposition rallies that can deceive you into voting for people without the right credentials instead of the PAP candidates who understand that guarding the people's interest is not as simple as guarding the people's interest - policy making is about many tradeoffs that the PAP govt has created - from they many GICs, the deserving power elites and maintaining the status quo, what is good for the people becomes an ambiguity - these days we are not even sure who "the people" are given our nation has been corporatised and transformed into a business entity. It is more important than ever before to find the people with the appropriate motivation to serve. Contrast that with the thinking of the Opposition especially the Chees who think that the best way to safeguard the interests of Singapore citizens is to empower them with the right to speak up, protest and with transparent govt to arm them will all the information needed to question the govt. That is all hogwash because we the people know what we are incapable of .....and our govt has frequently told us so....leave everything to the PAP, don't question them for we have no intellectual capacity to understand what our great govt does let alone question them. Our PM Lee said and you should trust him:
"While the Government has been increasing efforts to explain its policies to Singaporeans........In fact, if we test people’s understanding of policies, I think even news workers and PAP MPs might not pass.” - PM Lee.
I hope the govt can help us find the "next generation leaders" who can understand govt policies and represent us in parliament. There is no place for the opposition because if PAP MPs cannot understand the PAP govt's policies what can the opposition do for the people. We the people should learn to trust our govt fully to serve us well. The opposition MPs have accomplished nothing when they urged the govt not to raise the GST because they did not understand why the GST hike is needed. They accomplished nothing when they asked the govt to do more for the poor because only the PAP govt understands why it is necessary to have poor people in Singapore. The opposition accomplished nothing when they demanded that the people be given more affordable housing because only the PAP understands why the people shouldn't be given too much "market subsidy". Only the PAP understands the system it created, only the PAP can find the right leaders for Singapore and the people should only vote for the PAP.
