  1. A complete waste of time by Ms Lim. It’s clear PAP won’t back down because of her opposition. And predictably, the ST chose to highlight the part of the exchange least favourable to WP, ie the exchange between Mr Low and the one who can’t sing. Hence the general impression people have is that WP is opposing for the sake of opposing.

    I’d not even bother to turn up for the “debate”. To me whether there’s more or less ncmp seats is unimportant. I don’t think it’ll affect my chance of getting elected. I don’t believe the electorate cares too much, either. After all, it’s not a bread and butter issue. If pressed, all I’ll say is that I’ll repeal the ncmp seats when I get into power. Meanwhile, I’d rather spend time campaigning and planning for the election.

  2. A very good speech by Sylvia. She shows why we need more credible oppositions in the parliament. Otherwise it would become a meeting of eunuchs…

  3. Adam road = Tanjong Pagar?
    Serangoon Central = Marine Parade?

    PAP = Moral Right to govern?

    Charlie Rose must have had a good laugh inside.

  4. if we do not want to continue to hear rubbish from the Parliament, we got to demonstrate with our vote!
