Disillusioned Aljunied resident: I will NEVER vote for WP ever again
Posted by temasektimes on July 20, 2012
When Mr Low Thia Kiang said during the election rally last year that the Workers Party will be a co-driver to slap the government, we Aljunied residents take his words for it and vote for WP, but now it seems like it is the co-driver who is sleeping and in need of a tight slap.
Why do Aljunied residents switch their support when their ward has been well taken care of by Mr George Yeo and his team all these years?
We support WP not because we believe it will do a better job than the PAP in running Aljunied, but because we want a voice in parliament to speak out against the government policies.
Yet WP’s performance so far has been most disappointing. Its MPs dare not open their mouths and question the ministers on important issues like the inflow of foreigners, rising cost of living, housing etc and only talk cock on completely irrelevant stuff like overseas voting, PSLE textbooks…
Why should I vote for the WP to ask such stupid questions in Parliament when the PAP MPs are fighting more for our interests?
Come the next GE, I and my family of five swear we will never vote for WP ever again. If this is the standard its MPs can offer, then we might as well vote for the PAP to get better benefits for our estate.
We want real opposition in parliament, not spineless ones who only know how to talk big during the rallies, but go missing in action for the next four years.
