Kenneth Jeyaretnam ‘suans’ WP for fulfilling its ‘patriotic duty’ to the PAP whip
Posted by temasektimes on September 18, 2012
In his latest article on his blog on the discrepancies in the figures for Singapore reserves, Reform Party Secretary-General Kenneth Jeyaretnam expressed his disappointment at the Workers Party MPs for not bringing up the issue in parliament:
“There are certainly questions to answer but which will go unanswered as long as we have an Opposition in Parliament that regards it as its patriotic duty to follow the PAP whip.”
Instead of asking important questions as such in parliament, WP MPs have mostly indulged in ‘bird talk’ so far with the PAP, wasting precious air time by fielding completely irrelevant, frivolous and childish questions on bird droppings, construction materials and carpark parking spaces.
Though the Workers Party is supposedly an ‘opposition’ party, its MPs seem to follow the PAP whip and has been voting according to the wishes of the PAP, leading some to speculate that it has become the unofficial ‘subsidiary party’ of the PAP.
With such an useless ‘opposition’ in parliament, Singaporeans may have to wait for another hundred years or more to know the truth behind the reserves.
