Reports and videos from TOC’s Face to Face political forum

I represented the Workers’ Party at a political forum organised by The Online Citizen (TOC) on 16 December 2010. Together with the other panellists from other political parties, we fielded questions from the audience for over two hours on various national issues.

I represented the Workers’ Party at a political forum organised by The Online Citizen (TOC) on 16 December 2010, titled “Face to Face”. Together with the representatives from five other political parties, we fielded questions from the audience for over two hours on various national issues.

A summary of the points I articulated can be found on the Workers’ Party’s website.

The news report by Today newspaper and Channel NewsAsia can be found here.

Below are some of TOC’s videos of the discussion.

Remaining videos will be uploaded soon on the TOC website. Your feedback on my presentation–particularly areas for improvement–is most welcome.

  1. I disagree with with Worker’s Party stand on Workfare. Workfare will help to entrench the current system and the end result is you will have more and more people falling into Workfare.

    The long term solution would be to put in place the pre-quisites of narrower income gap, lower cost of living so that minimum wages can be implemented. We need to move away from the 3rd world wage structure otherwise we cannot improve the quality of life of a large segment of the populace.

    Supporting Workfare even as a short term measure is real hazard because it will reduce the motivation for much needed bigger changes. This is the PAP’s fix to preserve as much of the current system as possible….
