Arrogant WP supporters call on Singaporeans to boycott other opposition parties in Punggol East by-election
Posted by temasektimes on January 10, 2013
Even before the election campaign for the Punggol East by-election is kicked off, arrogant supporters of the Workers Party are launching a smear campaign against other opposition parties which have indicated their intention to contest in the election.
The by-election was called after its former MP Michael Palmer resigned over an extramarital affair and will be held on 26 January 2013.
The Workers Party contested in Punggol East in the 2011 General Election where its candidate Lee Lilian garnered 41 percent of the votes.
One hardcore WP supporter Bob Ang urges Singaporeans to support only WP to cause other parties to lose their deposits:
Some other snide remarks made by WP supporters on social media:
“SDP should step back n let WP contest.. Dun behave like an opportunist.. If SDP comes in n lost, lost deposit small matter but comes 2016 might lose again wholesale.. So be cooperative n mature..” – Teong Man
“DP has only do 1 walkabout in Punggol East while WP has do the walkabout for the past 1 year. SDP should concentrate their walkabout in their stronghold Bukit Timah and not PE.” – Wong Hong Teng
Given its dismal performance in parliament so far where its MPs are well known for asking frivolous questions on PSLE textbooks, use of construction materials, private carparks, overseas voting and BIRD DROPPINGS, one cannot helping what difference one more pro-PAP WP MP will make.
In the aftermath of the General Election in 2011, WP newbie MP Pritam Singh publicly declared of WP’s intention to form a coalition government with the PAP in the future:
“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)”
