Tin Pei Ling: I rather focus on my residents than what others said about me

Posted by temasektimes on May 6, 2012

One year after the divisive General Election, newly minted MacPherson MP Tin Pei Ling remains unfazed by the brickbats she has received from netizens.

In an interview with the Straits Times, Ms Tin said smugly she would rather focus on her residents than be bothered by what others said about her.

Indeed, Ms Tin’s Facebook has been updated only infrequently since the last election and she seldom replied to netizens with most critical comments about her being deleted without any reason given.

“You meet residents, hear about their problems and try to help them. These are bread-and-butter issues. It sets things in perspective. It helps you to focus on what are really important, their lives,” she said.

Just two days ago, an irate MacPherson resident Mr Tan wrote a complaint letter to PAP Chairman Khaw Boon Wan about Ms Tin not conducting her Meet-the-People session this Monday on the eve of May Day.

“I thought these sessions would only be unavailable on public holidays and not its eve. I earnestly hope this nonsense will stop somewhere as it is extremely unacceptable for MPs to be behaving in such a manner especially drawing on taxpayers monies with huge bonuses,” he wrote. (read more here)

    if singaporeans are doing so well, how come so many bread and butter issues?

    Tin Pei Ling sucks – that is the bottomline.

    中国有位精忠报国的岳飞将军。
    新加坡也有位尽忠职守值得国人敬佩的TPL姑娘。
    虽然年纪轻,但这並不是绊脚石。她在事业颠峯时期依然放弃高薪厚碌,选择了日夜忙碌吃力不讨好的为民服务工作。热忱以帮助他人是她的自愿也是发自于内心。
    在这些日子里她为民服务的精神以热忱都受到民众的加奖和赞赏。民众对她的工作表现赞扬有加。不用十年的时间,她将是一位杰出的女性部长。

      不知阁下是否有听闻,中国教育部在数年前曾经讨论过,是否继续将岳飞视为“民族英雄”,因为岳飞乃属于“愚忠”,当年岳飞征战乘胜追击时,皇帝却突然发令十二金牌招岳飞回宫面对抗指罪状,岳飞明知回宫乃死路一条,却依旧去“送死”,导致大宋兵败,这样忠心是否值得后代学习呢?

      但若拿陈佩玲入国会之事和岳飞精忠报国相比,简直荒谬!

      什么叫“她在事业颠峯时期依然放弃高薪厚碌”?阁下是否知道她现在所获得议员酬劳远远多过她在前公司的薪金?

      在袒护自己偶像的当儿,切莫胡乱举例或瞎掰!以免让有知识的读者们笑掉大牙!

        人以百孝为先!岳母百般辛劳养育岳飞成人。希望他长大后能够精忠报国,所以在岳飞背面上剌青精忠报国四字。岳飞明知道回去是死路一条,假如不回去就等于不精忠报国!也就是说违背岳母的莘劳养育等于最大的不孝!岳飞将军以百孝为先何来愚忠。

        ”人以百孝为先“此话只适合用于维护家庭里的和睦共处,不适合用在战场上的生死搏斗!

        岳飞明知道回去是死路一条,假如不回去就等于不精忠报国!”?

        此话不但荒谬,简直屁话连遍!精忠报国最终目的在于英勇作战,击退敌军,以免国家遭殃,但岳飞在英勇作战的当儿竟然选择夫从懦弱昏君,回宫送死作出无谓的牺牲,随他征战的三十万大军也白打胜战,导致大宋陷入困境,这还不叫”愚忠“?

        不能为国家带来和平的”精忠“是不值得我们学习的”精忠“!

      • Zhenzidan said

        况且,孝顺父母和效忠国家不能相提并论,孝顺父母和效忠国家方法很多种,肯定不是要盲目听从父母或皇帝的旨意。

        唐太宗李世民当年与其兄弟李元吉和李建成争夺皇位杀死亲兄弟,数年后逼迫其父亲唐高祖退位,此举动很容易被视为“不孝”,但唐太宗立位后,中国历史却见证了黄金时代的开始。由此可见,治国能者未必要通过什么“孝顺”举动,而是靠英明神武的远见,有时还得不择手段,为国家带来繁荣!

    If you are genuine in concerning about your residents

    Step up and clarify and appease that resident who lodge the complain about your unannounced MPS cancellation

    Otherwise, talk I also can. Stupid girl.

    The resident too free ah? Have time to email Minister but don’t have time to email Ms Tin or the relevant organisations that can help him… Duh!
