Punggol East - A scramble for the spoils?

I wrote about the congregation of the vultures awaiting the ageing lion to fall. Every vulture is hungry and wanting to have its share of the meal. Would there be a mad scramble for the carcass or would each take its turn for a bite of the morsel? If they do it in an orderly manner, each will have their fill and more could come their way. If they go on a mad rush, the dying lion could walk away to live another day.

Lina Chiam of SPP, Hazel Poa of NSP have spoken. They would not be engaged in the foray in Punggol East. They would wait their turn as it was a battle field of WP and SDA in the last election. This sets up a gentleman's agreement on the pecking order in the opposition camp for the rest to follow. Would the others abide by this protocol, or would they defy the existing order and behave like when fools rush in?

Some parties are taking an ambivalent position at the moment with reservation that they could jump into the fray. Some quarters are openly encouraging all the opposition parties, or some parties to move in, 3 corners or many corners fight is irrelevant. Their intent could be simply a genuine interest in wanting their perceived favoured party to have a go at this seat. For some, the intent is nothing to hide, to agitate the opposition parties to strangle themselves and deprive themselves from a good fight.

The memory of the last Presidential Election is still vivid in the minds of the electorate. Some are cursing at the missed opportunities for their chosen candidate. Some are cursing at the spoilers. Would there be spoilers in the making, for whatever queer or make belief justifications, that they must be in the ring to split the votes of the opposition?

In a straight fight like Hougang, the chances of victory against the ruling party has been proven to be very high. So, would Punggol East be another Hougang or another multi corner fight that makes the opposition parties look like a bunch of unthinking and selfish hyenas, and ended with nothing and losing their credibility, and be the cursed of the electorate?

Should there be a multi party contest, the electorate could still be the deciding factor. They could despatch the spoilers into shame and losing their deposits as well. The electorate are no longer easily conned and a spoiler will be seen as a spoiler and will not be getting much sympathy votes. They would be rudely dismissed and their intent exposed.

Punggol East is staged like the last fort, the last resistance. Should Punggol East fall this time, the writings will be on the wall. There will be no stopping of the tide and a tsunami may follow suit to clear up everything in the way.

Hougang was  a watershed. Punggol East could be the Waterloo. Would there be spoilers to throw shit in to muddy the water?

Pinky does not have the balls to hold a by-election in Punggol East SMC.
He will say he is too "busy" and will NatCON us to sleep until GE 2016.

Palmer informed Pinky & PAP on 8 Dec according to Shit Times.
So if PAP had the courage, operational readiness, qualified candidates etc., they could have called for a snap by-elections and catch the Opposition unprepared.

Do you hear the sound of the bottom of the barrel being scrapped?

Likely, more generals and admirals will have to be co-opted (whatever this means) to join PAP soon.

Hopefully, the Alternative Parties will be sensible and allow the best in them to contest Punggol.
WP had garnered over 40% in the Last GE and will definitely be contesting in the By Election when one is called.

If and when the Other Alternative Parties do not participate, WP could easily emerges s the Winner. Singaporeans are longing for Alternative Parties to merge and if that is not possible, me wishes they could at least cooperate. And Punggol By Election is one ocassion for them(Alternative Parties) to show fellow citizens that they are able to and be respected as sensible people that can be trusted to be our future leaders.

May the By Election be called soon.

RB...PAP already scrapped the bottom of their barrel in the previous election..got any substantive candidate meh? Dare say that Micheal Palmer probably the blue eyed boy and his electoral win was done without too much help n canvassing from party who was prob too busy fighting the Hougang/Aljunid onslaught....no more bullets? You are right...the vultures are circling....hopefully wiser minds will prevail among the oppositions.

This is becoming a pattern, and a national political joke:

Everytime a parliamentarian gets caught having their dick sucked and jizzing all over the face of someone other than their spouse...it's off to the ballots.

An election, post-erection.

They already lost the power of coning the citizens. The more they NatCON the more people angry with them.

That is why we call it 'bye erection' giving rise to a 'by-election'.

Just give the MIWs unlimited access to the Geylang whorehouses.
They need an outlet for their lust.

As for horny female PAPigs.
I'm sure there are many Sinkie guys who would like to return the favour by screwing them for free.
