Lee Kuan Yew to speak at the coming PAP election rallies

Posted by singaporege2011 on April 20, 2011

PAP strongman Lee Kuan Yew will be speaking at the coming PAP election rallies, according to party sources as reported in the Straits Times today.

The 88 year old Lee announced his candidacy in Tanjong Pagar two days ago, much to the dismay of Singaporeans. In an online poll conducted by Temasek Review Facebook, 87 percent of netizens polled want Lee to retire from politics for good. 

Tanjong Pagar has been uncontested since it was formed in 1991. With the exception of Lee himself, its present slate of MPs have not contested in a single election before including the recently retired Koo Tsai Kee who bore the ignominy of being an unelected MP for twenty years.

It will be interesting to hear Lee speaks as he may turn out to be ‘trump card’ of the opposition by peeving off more voters with his usual highfalutin ‘hard truths.’

The opposition should not be afraid of contesting Tanjong Pagar. In the recent Sarawak state election, 75 year old Tan Sri George Chan, a former Deputy Chief Minister lost to a 28 year old newbie from the opposition by more than 1,500 votes.

    I have opined in other net forums, my belief that we, ALL of us should by-now refrain or stop using the word ‘PAP strong man..LKY

    Why, what justification is there to bestow on him the title strongman? IN FACT more appropriate is LKY the PAP Bully, am I right ? He was, and IS NOT strong. He WAS an UTTER ballsless Bully.

    Shall we, all anti PAP comrades, proud citizens of Singapore, true blue born and bred, done NS (for guys)..

    “Yes, they all come to see me
    Arms reaching, smiling sweetly
    As they lay me ‘neath the
    Green green grass of home …”
