Pritam Singh thinks Politics is just a "theoretical exercise"

Seems like Pritam Singh of the Workers' Party had stepped out of the Party line when he gave a speech at a forum organised by the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) on 8 July 2011. At the forum he said:

"There are 87 seats in Parliament. How many do we have right now? We've got six ... we will not be ready to form a government till we got 44 good candidates, who are elected by the people."

He added: "So, is that something we are working toward? Well, I think the short answer is yes."

After the forum, the first-term WP CEC member had to issue remarks to clarify himself so that he could toe the party line:

'Let's not rule out the prospects of the PAP being forced into coalition politics. And coalition governments don't mean things don't happen... (there) could be unity government... There is a huge political space there for us to actually think about, insofar as how politics in Singapore... is going forward.'

And to "draw a snake and add legs to it", Pritam said all what was discussed during the forum was just "theoretical exercise"...

Theoretical Exercise????
Theoretical Exercise???

Pritam, who is still schooling, might not have realised that Politics is not just a theoretical exercise. Unless... "First World Parliament" was also a "theoretical exercise". That, we thought was WP's very successful exercise.

When probed by The Sunday Times further, he had his "don't know what to say" moment:
Asked about the likelihood of the WP forming a coalition government, he said: 'That is something you should ask the PAP; that's for them or any other party in that position to decide.'

How could the PAP or "any other party" know the likelihood of the WP forming a coalition government?==> Is this another "theoretical exercise"?

Vote for Pritam Singh. Vote to run Singapore with a "theoretical exercise"!

Alex Tan Zhi Xiang forgets his commitment to Singaporeans

Alex Tan Zhi Xiang (Reform Party) was the "on loan" candidate from Singapore People's Party to Reform Party.

Prior to the Elections, he arrogantly declared to Singaporeans that he would leave Singapore if he didn't win the General Election 2011. However, he has forgotten his commitment.

The 24-year-old Insurance Agent was brought to fame when he posted vulgarities on Young PAP facebook, and later disclosed his unhappiness on being banned by the Administrators of the facebook.

He then became a writer for Temasek Review for a short stint.

A check on Temasek Review website indicates that Alex Tan has removed all the videos of his speeches done at Hong Lim Park. FYI, when he spoke, there were less than 5 people, despite the heavy publicity from Temasek Review.

All eyes are now on the next move from this Insurance Agent. It is disappointing for Singaporeans to know the Opposition doesn't hold themselves to their words.

Vote for Alex Tan Zhi Xiang. Vote for Arrogance.
