WP NCMP: We want ‘positive engagement’ with the government
Posted by temasektimes on October 18, 2012
Sharing his views during a forum organization by NUS Political Association on the ongoing ‘Singapore Conversation’, Mr Yee said:
“We all have our different ways of engaging in our own conversation so, there is a government’s initiated national conversation going on right now and the Workers’ Party has always believed in positive engagement, in whatever we can to contribute towards the general good of Singapore.”
Mr Yee has earlier lavished generous praise on the initiative by the PAP government:
“It’d be good when something is really done, that the voices are heard. Like I said, there are a lot of voices that are already heard. I don’t think there (will be) any new views that will be surfaced.”
The Workers Party has been indulging in ‘positive engagement’ with the PAP in parliament for the past one year by amusing it with completely irrelevant, frivolous and ridiculous questions on PSLE textbooks, overseas voting, use of tempered glass and BIRD DROPPINGS.
In the aftermath of the General Election last year, WP MP Pritam Singh declared the intention of the Workers Party to work with the PAP rather than the other opposition parties:
“If the PAP fails to win a majority in the next election, the Workers Party will form a coalition government with it (to keep it in power)”
Singaporeans voting for the Workers Party are in fact voting for the PAP since its MPs are so closely aligned to it that even the PAP backbenchers are more independent, vocal and critical than them.
