How Dare You, Penny?

Such disrespect!

I stood at attention and sang 'God Save the Queen.' I then stood at attention and sang 'Negara Ku'. For the past 46 years, When 'Majulah Singapura' is sung at any occasion, even if I do not sing, I still stand still. Call me an old fogey with this thingy about respect for country but for a PAP MP to fook around with her mobile phone at the National Day Parade while the National Anthem is playing (tail end or not) is simply unacceptable!

It is a fooking shame!

With ex-MM Lee saying that the National Pledge is nothing but an "aspiration", I guess the National Anthem is also losing its currency! Monkey see, monkey do. If Grand Leeder does not respect Pledge, monkey MP can also not respect anthem! With this video [Link], school principals and teachers will have a hard time disciplining their students when the kids start misbehaving during the flag raising ceremony!

With the PTC allowing PTOs to increase bus and MRT fares; with the Election Dept and Police not taking action on Tin Pei Lin's heat on 'Cooling Off Day'; with Tony not being able to explain why Patrick's 12-year-deferment was not AWOL; with Shanmugam's twisting-and-turning hogwash on the elected presidency and now with Penny's mobile national anthem, the clock is ticking against the PAP. And should the PEC decide not to allow Tan Cheng Bok, Tan Kin Lian and Tan Jee Say to run for the elected presidency, the frustration and sense of hopelessness of the 40% (and growing) Singaporeans will be palpable!

If PM Lee Hsien Loong continues to condone such despicable acts by being dumb, I fear for my country, Singapore. Fair is fair and double standard in administering justice will lead to chaos! Talk is cheap! To have apologised to Singaporeans for the lapses for the past 5 years just to win votes is self defeating. To tell his cronies and subordinates to 'serve and not over lord' appears hollow with what's been happening lately. While PM is at it, he may want to tell his Law Minister to just 'shut the fook up' to prevent more jeopardy to PAP and, worst still, the country!

Times, they are a changin'. If PM Lee is reading this, I hope that he will come straight out to let Singaporeans, especially the young, know that there are certain decorum that you just can't fook with! If Salah Peiling and Penny Mobile can get away with what they did, we would know the integrity and true character of, not only the culprits, but their leader!

You fooking SEDIA (not senang diri, not moving, not messing with anything, let alone your mobile phone) when the National Anthem is sung! That's what we learned in school, Inche Shamsudin and Tiger Hong while we were in SAFTI and/or Beach Road Camp!

I pity the constituents in Punggol/Pasir Ris GRC. They have an arrogant male MP who did not serve NS at all and a lady MP who played with her phone when the National Anthem was sung on the National Day of 2011.

I hope "Stand up for Singapore, play the phone if you can!" will not be the feel-good Singapore song.

It's a pity that by blogging the way I do, I'll be accused of trying to divide the country and not help to unite Singapore. It is so sad, so bloody sad that if anything negative is mentioned or written of PAP or any of its members or cronies, we are accused of being divisive, of being disloyal to Singapore. When will they ever learn that Singapore is not PAP and PAP is not Singapore!

Right is right and wrong is wrong. Though victor can write history, truth will always prevail!

Hear, hear! I am in full agreement with you. The way the PAP is twisting and turning our long-held standard bearers of nationhood (anthem and pledge) to suit their purposes and justify their actions makes me sick to the core.

Penny Low's excuse of an apology is simply lame and can in no way absolve her of the 'crime' of dishonoring the national anthem. If she had simply stuck with a pure heartfelt apology, it may have gone down well with Singaporeans. But seeing that she tried to justify it as being caught up in the moment and did not even call upon the benefit of hindsight to say she was wrong for not having waited until the end of the singing of the national anthem to fiddle with the phone shows the absolute lack of wisdom and propriety on her part.

If this is the kind of 'talent' that the PAP is drawing into its fold, then all I have to say is "Good luck in 2016".

Fish, did you stand and sing the Kimigayo as well?

Feed me to the fish,

you forget to mention that the national anthem itself is a aspiration when it is translated into english !

The following is official English translation.

Take note of the word "aspiration".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majulah_Singapura

Is Penny Low showing disrespect to the National Anthem because it is just a aspiration like our pledge is a aspiration to our SinCity Emperor ?

Like Master like servant !

==========================
Come, fellow Singaporeans
Let us progress towards happiness together
May our noble ASPIRATION bring
Singapore success

Come, let us unite
In a new spirit
Let our voices soar as one
Onward Singapore
Onward Singapore

Come, let us unite
In a new spirit
Let our voices soar as one
Onward Singapore
Onward Singapore

I am new to your blog but am certainly glad to have stumbled upon it, and adding it to my daily dose of Singapore news.

Penny Low can't even wait for 3 minutes at most to contain her excitement? This sounds like a little girl's impatience in wanting to have things her way.

In some other countries, one is only required to stand when their national anthems are playing. MP Penny Low was standing alrite.
THERE IS NO NEED TO STAND OR SING ALONG AT ATTENTION AND STIFFLY SO.

My apology, need to amend an earlier comment.
'THERE IS NO NEED TO STAND' should read 'THERE IS NO NEED TO STAND AT ATTENTION'.

Thanks All!

Yes and no. Even in Singapore, there is no need to stand at attention or sing - only to stand up.

But the point here is that she is an elected representative. All uniformed personnel (and that includes all able-bodied Singaporean males, and school children are taught to stand at attention when the anthem is played. All the MPs, except Penny, is standing and singing. And she's playing with her handphone. Her excuse is even more insulting. You mean she is such a wet-behind-the-year teenager who is attending NDP for the first time that she cannot wait to message her patriotism? She did a boo-boo and had the gall to tell Singaporeans that National Day is a time to unite, not to divide. Yes, Singaporeans are all united - united in condemning her disrespect.

Can't believe in today news that the union is "endorsing" Tony Tan whose son were allowed legal "AWOL". If he has no respect for mindef oath to serve NS in its entirety until the end of our obligatory ICT, I dare not imagine what could have happened with such questionable "father" being the Singapore president.

I hope Singaporeans opened their eyes to avoid voting Tony Tan and make Singapore a shamed country.

Fish,
Penny would not have the audacity to do what she did, IF she were an MP in Malaysia...just imagine the rocks she would have received,
and I bet Najib plus every other Malaysian minister would have given her an absolute roasting in public.

Only in SinCity, with a pathetic PM at the helm, anything goes.
The old fart and son still have the cheek to claim all PAP MPs are carefully vetted. WTF!

Mr Fish.
Bravo. Well said. It is great to have a countryman like you. Why our MP cannot speak with passion and conviction like you?

Fish, I think you and I go back to the days of SAF where Tiger Hong and Samsudin rule the parade square. He was my RSM in 3SIR.

Those of us who were in army before all understand what SEDIA means. No matter what is your rank, Tiger Hong and any respectable RSM will not blink an eye to throw anyone into the guardroom if he so much twitch his thumb during parade let alone during the singing of the national anthem!

What a load of rubbish that she was "sharing the joy of the moment" using her mobile phone. In any meeting, this is very rude. In National Day Parade during the singing of the National Anthem is just fooking ridiculous.
