Presidental Election: The Heat Is On!

It’s amazing! It’s even better than the National Day Parade!

With the chorus of “Chiak Liow Bee” (Good for nothing), “Bullshit” and “Patrick Tan”, Tony could still walked off the stage smiling. He could be hard of hearing, insensitive or simply doesn’t give a fook!

Though Patrick’s special NS treatment is an issue on integrity and fairplay, I hope many will google on the 'Escape from Cheng San' [Link] and the defamation of Tan Liang Hong [Link] & [Link] to gain more knowledge of the presidential candidate. From the links, we may understand better the reasons for such outburst!

Singaporeans are often accused of "rocking the boat", of being "disruptive", 'daft", "divisive" and even "disloyal" when they disagree with the power that it. For the prudes who feel that the "noise" of "Chiak Liow Bee", "Bullshit" and "Patrick Tan" are uncouth, stupid or disrespectful, my question is: If not this, how? If not now, when? With the stifling oppression and suppression freedom of speech and peaceful demonstration in Singapore, how else can unhappy Singaporeans be heard? It is better this than than gunning down innocents (as in Norway) or self-immolation as in Tibet.

Times, they are a changin’. Singaporeans are waking up to the idea that “enough is enough”. Singaporeans want to live by the National Pledge – ‘to build a democratic society based on justice and equality – and not treat it like another “talk cock sing song” aspiration where well-connected elites get “white horse” treatment while ordinary citizens get spurs hooked and bleeding on their backsides!

Nobody would like to be in the position of Tony and his cronies on the stage at PA HQ today. Unless you do not have a beating heart, unless you are a thick-skinned puppet or a heartless mercenary, you would have been emotionally and negatively impacted by such unhappy “noise”.

However, we live, we die. We reap, we sow.

Maybe, just maybe, which ever station we are in, it evens out!


ps: It is indeed honourable of Jee Say to admit that his supporters may have created the 'noise' but I'm not surprised that supporters of TKL and TCB or even Singaporeans without any affiliation to any candidate have joined in the Celebration Cheer! Celebration Cheer? How often can you make such "noise" to such a powerful and rich elite?

Hello Sir,
The ST reported that TT's supporters outnumbered by far the total of all the other hopefuls'. But they were "out-voiced". Me thinks THAT is the difference between the 'concripts' supporters of TT at the nomination centre and that of the others (especially TJS'. The latter believe in a cause. The others were there to "support" aka por lum par. A piece on this aspect in your immicable style will be heart jabbing and enlightening, me thinks, again.

no lah! The crowd was yelling "YAM AH MEE", not "Jiak liao bee". The crowd wanted Yam Ah Mee, who came up on stage in between each candidate, to come on stage right now and call for the next candidate to speak.

Do not be surprise if tony tan joins the Former FM george yeo who was dropped by the Aljunied GRC Voters months ago.
T Tan got booed at on Nomination Day and chances of him getting boot out by the people is very high.

The many organizations that were out to endorse Tony Tan are making many voters piss off. It may work negatively for him(Tony Tan)

Exactly my sentiments.

Why make so much of an issue by shouting about the support by the Unions and Clans for TT and piss people off further? Angry people do not care any more about what the PAP or MSM say. Their aim is to register their anger by voting someone not related to the PAP.

I think history will be written twice this year. Just watch the fun.

just watched the 4 candidates on TV and to me the only candidate who spoke with conviction was TJS.
what he said connected with what i expect of a people's president.

ps: if TT alias Phony Tan becomes president, i don't see how the 40% can forgive the dumb ass 60%

Dear Fish,

I am not a TKL supporter but he sounded more presidential than Cheng Bok and Jee Seng at the ST roundtable. TT's links to the ruling party has not made him a viable candidate.

I have yet to make a choice between Jee Seng and Kin Liang. Do you have any advice? Who are you voting for?
