PAP leaders warns of ‘dark clouds’ ahead to frighten voters from supporting opposition

Bankrupt completely of ideas to take Singapore forward, PAP leaders have resorted to the usual fear-mongering tactics to frighten voters from supporting the opposition.

At least five PAP (caretaker) ministers warn that they are now seeing ‘dark clouds’ ahead and that a ‘strong’ and ‘stable’ PAP government is necessary to bring Singapore forward.

“We can see dark clouds on the horizon – the political upheavals in the Middle East, the tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan, serious debt problems in Europe, and a crisis in government finances in the US. Our neighbouring countries also face security challenges from extremists and terrorists. All these could impact our growth, stability and security,” said PM Lee at the PAP’s first political rally.

For some strange reasons, PAP ministers were caught ‘off guard’ by the global financial crisis in 2008 and lost billions of dollars of taxpayers’ monies in failed overseas investments when the ‘dark clouds’ were noted as early as 2005, according to SDP candidate Dr Vincent Wijeysingha at a rally last night.

The gist of the PAP’s message, which will be played again and again via its propaganda mouthpieces is this: Singapore needs a ‘strong’ PAP government to lead Singaporeans through the uncertainties of the future.

Based on the PAP’s ‘track recor’d since 2006, Singaporeans must wonder whether they should continue to put their trust into the present PAP team. (NOT the PAP Old Guards who had built Singapore)

The PAP can continue to rule Singapore with a simple majority. Many First World nations have strong opposition parties to check on the government.

PAP’s paramount leader Lee Kuan Yew reminded Singaporeans lately that Singapore still need 900,000 foreign workers on work permits without explaining how he arrived at the figures.

With no opposition in parliament to deny the PAP’s 2/3 majority and to scrutinize the PAP’s bills and policies carefully, Singaporeans may well end up with more than 1 million foreigners as their neighbors in the next 5 years without knowing what happened.
