children in wonderland

After the last few days of election campaigning I am more convinced that we are sorely in need of a strong opposition representation in Parliament. I do not know how you people out there feel. Some of you may still think that having opposition is a waste of time. But to me, without opposition we are going to be little children in our little nursery wonderland. For once, the govt is pledging to do so many things for the people, to reduce cost of living, estate upgrading, more jobs etc etc. Even crow problem was neglected and needs an election to be pointed out. I would thought all these problems should be solved a long time ago. But these are problems to be dealt with in the future, after an election. What if there were no opposition, no election? We need competition, opposing and alternative views. We need the other hand to clap. Otherwise we will be clapping with one hand.
