Ms Denise Phua, will you shave your head?

Having seen opposition member, Mr Low Thia Kiang being mauled by Mintsters and MPs of PAP after his contribution to the Budget 2009 debate, I was shocked to see the attack dogs go after NMP Mr Siew Kum Hong. See this video and you'd know what I mean.

In the perennial style of the PAP, Heng Chee How asked,"If he believes that the Jobs Credits Scheme is not cost effective, what other ideas would he have to save jobs?". I'm so happy to hear Mr Siew giving an honest answer, "As to whether I have any alternative suggestion to save jobs. I wish I did . . . the reality is I don't. The question is: What do you do to help people whose jobs are lost?"

Mr Siew stated in his blog,"After I completed my speech, four PAP MPs stood up to question me. This is the first time this has ever happened to me, and it was really quite intimidating and unnerving. I really had to think on my feet. I hope I acquitted myself well."

Dear Mr Siew, you've done well in speaking up for the ordinary folks in Singapore and we are proud of you! In appreciation of what you have done , the next time I see you I'll head-kiss you like French international soccer player Laurent Blanc did to Fabien Barthez. Thank you.

As much as I'm not a fan of PAP because of their pompous father-knows-best hubris and treating ordinary folks as lesser mortals, I'm glad to note that Ms Denise Phua is a little different from the pack.

MP Denise Phua went through the baptism of fire when PAP sent her to the wolves in a forum in NUS in May 2006. As member of the audience, my friend and I were shocked when Denise Phua introduced herself by innocently saying "I do not know why they send me here". In the same way that President Barack Obama said, "I screwed up" and Siew Kum Hong said, "I wish I did . . . the reality is I don't", I admire Denise Phua for telling it like it is.

I know that bloggers had a field day then in commenting on her observation that 85% 0f bloggers writes negatively about PAP which she mentioned in that forum. The flames were pretty hot then. Just google "denise phua blogs 85%" and you'd get the all hot stuff!

Surprisingly, Senior Minister of State for Information, Communications and the Arts, Lui Tuck Yew" is inviting some now. If only Mintster Liu had learned some from MP Denise Phua before he tried to earn his keep in Parliament, the new joke (one of many here) would not have started.

For Ms Denise Phua's contribution to Budget 2009 debate, I must say it takes courage to speak up against the grain and not blindly support what the PAP Immortals decree. "Bonanza Budget - Will Jobs Credit Scheme Save Jobs . . . To reduce the overlaps and inefficiency in the macro amazing maze of CDCs; ethnic based self help groups; grassroots organisations; VWOs; family service centres and charitable bodies . . ." To say that the Jobs Credit Scheme enriches CEO and board members instead of helping employees is telling what comes from the heart and not from the Whip! Yes, she has to support the motion due to the whip but to speak of the dignity of the less fortunate (hearing impaired lesser mortals) who are frustrated with the callousness of the government is something else.

From the video, she is indeed lucky not to have the attack dogs from her own party going after her for clarifications like they did Mr Low Thia Kiang and Siew Kum Hong!

Is she the only one in PAP trying to help Singaporeans "staying together, moving ahead - bersatu padu bersama maju"?

I totally agree with her that "It is easier to critique than to construct" and not to always ask "What's in it for me?"

As a PAP MP, to needle Temasek on ABC Learning in which $400 million went up in smoke is suicidal!

Heck, if she shaves her head bald, I'd give her a head-kiss too!
(For the same reasons I would kiss Mr Siew Kum Hong's botak head).

"her observation that 85% 0f bloggers writes negatively about PAP"

Funny why PAP never critiqued that 100% of Straits Time writes favorably about PAP and 100% against the oppositions?

is Denise Phua learning from Lily Neo....trying to speak up for the
ordinary people ?.....not quite there yet.

agree that Denise mentioned about bloggers but not those in ST forum,
where is her objectivity ?
and more importantly, ST is ranked
150+ internationally...

By the way Mr.Fish, i agree with you that Siew did well and i will shave my head if the bloody PAP
i love animals but detest the 2 legged kind that we saw in parliament. trust me, many would love to give them a good kick.

Denise Phua spoke up against the rise in Minister's salaries (and got "whacked" by Shanmugam). She also made constructive suggestions to fine tune the Job Credits scheme. I guess it is hard to be aligned to the PAP without inviting cynicism from the public. But there are MPs like Inderjit Singh ,Denise Phua, Siew and Olsen (altho the latter 2 are NCMPS) who still give me hope that there are MPs who are not just toeing the party line ! Too bad there are so few of them though !

Agree that we should listen to their full speeches and pass judgement thereafter.

I too have hope that there are some PAP MPs out there who cares for the people - while others are there to score brownie points.

MPs who speak up against high pay for ministers, foreign talent - while toeing the whip. I hope they continue in the next elections.
