Another day of disappointment

I was watching In Parliament last night, looking for gems again. It was another disappointing session. After sitting through the 10 minutes of airing on Channel 5 I could not remember anything worth noting. All I could recall was a few familiar faces like Halimah, Zaqy, Ho Geok Choo and Hawazi. Oh, I remember the camera zoomed in on a handful of faces in the back bench. To be exact, I remember 3 faces, De Souza, Pauline and Sylvia. And the camera kept coming back to Pauline as if the room was too crowded and it was being blocked from taking other faces. I was hoping that it could pan the whole Parliament room to show all the faces but no. Viewers watching In Parliament could go off with the impression that our Parliament had not more than 10 MPs. Of course there were 84 of them out there. This morning's ST reported that Mah Bow Tan was there and so was Lee Bee Wah. She dispelled the impression that Parliament was having a sleepy session. It was indeed very busy. This is what she said. 'Sometimes we are not called on even though we put up our hands. I would like to see more time devoted to hot topics in particular, so that the issue can be thoroughly debated.' That I agree, will be a good change instead of limiting debating time and the session ended with a minister making his prepared speech and followed by a few prepared questions from the MPs. To give justice to Parliament sitting, MediaCorp should devote more time to it rather than the 10 minutes accorded, same same like Talking Point. Even Blog TV has longer air time than the highest body meeting in the country. It would give an opportunity for the people to share some of the wisdom from the best talents in the country, anytime betterer than Blog TV.

PAPs parliament sessions are a farce and a total wayang session with questions and answers pre-scripted as if they're acting! And from the dwindling attendance of PAP MPs, it appears even their actors are tired of the wayang.

Its just like YOG! Closing 90% of the seats so the tv cameras can still catch some audience in the background, giving an ILLUSION that the venue is fuller than it is.

Don't be surprise in the end...they have to "hired" part-time stand-ins for the Parliament or their Election rallies to make up the numbers...

Don't also be shock that out of desperation they will resort to using card board cut-outs of people to "stand-in" for the real stand-ins too due to not enough of them.

Singapore could have been so much more...but because of the idiots who mis-use the most critical resource of a country...the people...what is the point of having a lot of oil, minerals and what not when you do the have that most vital of resource the people of your country...

Problem is the Clowns in white and their chief clown sees the people of singapore as something to "live" off...speaks volume of the kind of characters they truely are.

Low born and low life scums.

It is sickeninig to see this.

But karma will come calling...not now perhaps but in the future to these evil doers and real sickos...dun be surprise one day while you are sleeping in a "safe" country far away to discover "someone" in your bed-room smiling in glee to rip out your entrails thru your throat in the end...and stamp on them as you bleed to death slowly...just like you previously did the same to your ex-fellow countrymen and ex-citizens...don't be so surprise at all ex-MIW bottom feeder scum.
