Punggol East SMC up for grabs


Would there be a by election in Punggol East with Michael Palmers’ resignation? I think so, and many also think so. What do you think?

The opposition parties would be having a pow wow now on who should have the right to contest this seat. I couldn’t remember who fought against him the last time. If I am not mistaken it was a 3 corner fight with Lee Li Lian from WP and Desmond Lim the third candidate from SDA. These two parties should have priority or the first right of refusal to fight the seat one more time. This seems to be the guiding principle among the opposition parties and may help to defuse a power struggle and bad blood from spilling.

Punggol East is near to Low Thia Khiang’s stronghold of Hougang and Aljunied. Is it going to be another PAP versu WP fight and SDA again? Or would it be a two party fight?

It doesn't matter whether there'll be an appointment or an election.

Fact of the matter is that never get caught having your dick sucked if you are in political office. In the private sector...no problem. You can be the dick sucker or dick suckee...any which way, you are going to get something you want ;-)

I remember that PM Lee said during WP Yaw Shin Leong saga: "The WP has let down the voters of Hougang."

PAP-MIW Joke - politically correct terms for a horny female PAPig
-------------------------
1.She is not EASY - She is HORIZONTALLY ACCESSIBLE.

2.She has not BEEN AROUND - She is A PREVIOUSLY ENJOYED COMPANION.

3.She is not HORNY - She is SEXUALLY FOCUSED.

4.She is not a SLUT - She is SEXUALLY EXTROVERTED.

5. She is not a CHEAP WHORE - She is a LOW COST SERVICE PROVIDER

I just can't imagine how big will be the crowd when Low Thia Khiang and his team hold a rally in this by election. And they may even invite Yaw Shin Leong as the guest speaker.

This is the really the mother of all scandal! An MP from PAP and a speaker of Parliament to boot. By now people would not call him speaker of parliament any more. They would call him fucker of parliament.Wonder how was it discovered? Was the wife who is also a lawyer caught the adulterer and gone public with the story thereby forcing the hands of PAP to come clean?Guess we will never know the truth. What we know sure is that life is so exciting in this sin city. Scandal after scandal that makes one breathless. Who will now remember Cecilia Sue or the pinoy from Seagate who ridiculed sinkie for working under foreigners in their own country.

What ? SMC up for grabs.

Redbean,
you could be wrong again because the SMC can suddenly become part of old fart's GRC because our clowns is capable of performing magic that david copperfield can only envy.

Anything ridiculous can happen because to PAP, desperate time needs desperate measure. Very soon people will forget that Punngol East is a SMC, but part of GRC. PAP is so desperate to hold on to power at all costs.

God save the SMC !

Redbean,
what do you think ?

With the pillars of justice going for retirement soon, pinky can always find excuse for delaying by-election for the SMC. Somewhere in the world, kangaroo can fly, you know. How about delaying the by-election until the 2016 election over ? Oppsss... SMC could be part of PAP GRC then,.... hmmm too bad, so say PAP, so no by-election lah...

Redbean,
what do you think again ?

The WP let down the voters of Hougang because they did not check out the character blemishment of Yaw Shin Leong. That was basically what the PAP said then. But how could the WP know before it happened?

Now, what are they going to say about themselves with regard to Michael Palmer? Did they know about Michael Palmer's character flaw before this happened?

Some things said in bid to tarnish the reputation of others can well come back to haunt the accuser. Retribution will come sooner or later.

Will PA stop giving out it's PassionCard?
PassionCard does not mean you have license to anyhow poke you know.

Not so fast redbean.

Punggol East SMC could well end up being merged with a GRC. That is if they can justify getting someone from an adjacent PAP GRC to helm the constituency temperorily until 2016 and then merging it with an adjacent PAP GRC again, since it is all under PAP control. Punggol SMC was carved out from Pasir Ris/Punggol GRC during the 2011 GE, if I am not mistaken.

Anything is possible.

Was the woman a female PAPig?
Do you have to be a card carrying PAPig to work in PA?

"PassionCard does not mean you have license to anyhow poke you know."

Since when PAP ever need license and reason to poke you anyway ? They don't even need to accountable to tax-payer money, let alone accountable to anyone.

There is something wrong with the timeline.

"Mr Teo (Chee Hean) said the party first came to know about the matter on 8 December. He said Mr Palmer had personally met him to inform him about the matter and of his intention to resign."

So what does this mean?
Mr Palmer started the improper relationship on 7 Dec.
Had a guilty conscience the next day on 8 Dec.
Then confess and resign to Teo Chee Hean on 8 Dec?

What by election? The soon to be retired judge did rule that the PM has unfettered right to call or not call a by election. And did you guys help in the appeal by the cleaner?

Maybe we need a poorer bus captain to file another legal suit?

Do you hear the hair tingling screeching sound? It's the sound from the scrapping of an empty barrel. Ask Charles Chong, the new acting Speaker.

The last time the barrel was scrapped, they got a doctor. And he got a walkover on the coat-tails of the then MM. Not TPL, who scrapped through on the coat-tails of the then SM.

This I got see what comes out from the barrel.

The Lightjning betrayed by the Thunder.
May we give the One that exposed the Relationship a thunderous applause.

Oops, it maybe one of the protagonists himself or herself, hard to say that they themselves did not do it. It is usual to lovers threaten the other party when relationship gets bitter.

That passioncard is the evil cause. Every time you buy something, the girl will ask you, "Sir, do you have passion?"

How to say no when she keeps asking you that?

I think calling for by erection, oops, election would be dangerous for PAP at this moment. So many negative issues surfaced recently, putting the government is the all-time low rating. Its a bad time for elections, certainly for PAP.
