Response to Teo Ho Pin's Statement

Mr Teo Ho Pin,

The first thing that came to my mind when I read "Statement by Teo Ho Pin on AIM Transaction" was "Lu kong simi?" = Say what?

I simply do not understand what to make of your statement. If you trust honesty, you would not have wasted time to defend the indefensible. If you continue to paint yourself into a corner, you'd only damage your integrity and bring your credibility down the sewers like the PM recently did with his 2013 New Year Message.

I'm no fan of Michael Palmer but his resignation (forced or otherwise) was a huge release for him. Through his resignation (or sack), he may have found freedom. Free from the chains of political masters/vampires who suck away core values and self worth  Maybe you should do the same. Resign.

If you had say, "The reason for AIMgate was to trip any opposition who might have won in 2011 election." I would have shown you some respect, If you had continue with, "Unlike Goh Chok Tong who was crass enough to say no upgrading if you did not vote PAP or Lee Kuan Yew who said Singaporeans must repent if they voted for the opposition, I, Teo Ho Pin, am sorry that I have behaved worse than both of them. Instead of being upfront, I was working behind the scene to trip the opposition without any thought or concern for the well-being of the residents of the opposition GRC . Now I have awakened my sense of righteousness. I will not allow myself to treat Singaporeans with such contempt. In order to sleep well at night and sin no more, I shall, henceforth, resign as co-ordinating chairman of the 14 (now 13?) Town Councils, resign as a Mayor and as MP of Bukit Panjang."

If PM Lee's 2013 New Year Message sucks big time, your defence for AIM Transanctions sucks even worse!

As much as I blame the speechwriters for the crap of the 2103 New Year Message and shocked that PM Lee really read that speech, I think you should consult a better expert to help you get out of your current quagmire.

Honestly, quitting for you may be the better part of valour.

Your epic failure lies in what you wrote here:
As Coordinating Chairman of the TCs, I had to oversee the redevelopment of the existing computer system for all TCs. It was clear to me that the existing computer software was already dated.  The NCS contract would end by 31 October 2011 (if the one year extension option was exercised).  However, assessing new software and actually developing a replacement system that would meet our new requirements would take time, maybe 18-24 months or even longer.  We thus needed to ensure that we could get a further extension (beyond October 2011) from NCS, while working on redevelopment options.

Ho Pin, you messed up big time here! If "the existing computer software was already dated" then,  just why did you take so long to take action? Hey, man, you belong to the Peoples' Action Party and it took you so long to act?  Now I know why my money in Town Council went to Lehman Brothers and never came back!

so we have the coordinator of TC who outsource to AIM. We also have Transport minister who do not run the public bus company nor the public train service. All these outsourcing so that the buck stops with the CEOs of these pte entities and the Minister gets away scot free. We need to change.

Typical PAP style screw up.
National Conversation.

He is still twisting and turning, defending all the obvious wrongdoings, treating us like fools. I recall this is the guy who lost millions of dollars to Lehman and still got the cheek to stick around (where is the accountability?). Honestly, when I see his face, I want to puke.

Singaporeans are supposed to be daft,stupid, docile, gullible and naive based on the expectation of PAP to continue its regime and money-making business.
