GE 2015/16 – What would it be?


After the PGP the PAP delivered two more panaceas, the Medishield Life Insurance and the revisions to the CPF scheme. And the PAP is pleased from what Hsien Loong has said, from the happy and smiling faces in Parliament, you know they have done it. You can feel it, the contentment and confidence that they have done right this time and they assumed, or they thought, the people are also pleased.
 

If the assumption and thinking are true and correct, the PAP is going to have a walkover in the coming GE. When the people are happy with the govt, with all the panaceas, you can bet they will all vote for the PAP, for more good years and for betterer Medishild Life and CPF schemes. 

What would it be? A Tham Weng Kay commented in an editorial piece titled, ‘PM on CPF: Many don’t jump around in Hong Lim Park’. His comments were pretty long and I just quote a para here:
 

‘Lee Hsien Loong, MORE LIKELY THAN NOT THE DRASTICALLY REDUCTION OF VOTES TO THE FAVOUR OF PAP IN THIS COMING GENERAL ELECTION THAT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DOWNFALL AND COLLAPSE OF THIS ENTIRE PAP GOVERNANCE WILL SPEAK FOR ITSELF AS TO WHETHER OR NOT SINGAPOREANS ARE : QUIETLY KNOWS (this is a good deal) OR ALL THESE ARE EVIL AND WICKED CPF PROCEDURAL SCHEMES CRAFTED BY YOU AND YOUR TEAM OF DEMON SPIRITS…!!!!’
 

Obviously Tham Weng Kay did not find the panaceas amusing or was convinced by their goodness. And he is putting his bet down that many Singaporeans would share his reservations and views, that the panaceas were nothing much to them.
 

Who is right? The PAP have been working very hard for the GE and rolling out all the good stuff, according to them, to win the votes. Would the voters see the good stuff as good stuff and be won over? Or would they sneer at the good stuff as election gimmicks and dump them as well as their votes to the opposition?
 

There can only be two outcomes in the GE, either the PAP wins or the PAP loses. In the former case, they will all be beaming their million dollar smiles for doing a good job and approved by the people. In the latter, can’t imagine how they would look like, after doing so much and assuming they have done good, only to be booted out.
 

There can be only two scenarios. Which one?

Which one?

Of course PAP will win again lah, if you still remember what WP Teochew Ah Hia said, and assuming WP is still not ready to be govt by next GE.

The PGP, Medishield Life and revisions to CPF are just to ensure that PAP will win better than the 60% votes they got in GE 2011. And not to forget the many new Sinkies minted by PAP since 2011 for the 6.9 million target.

So Hsien Loong has every reason to be pleased and confident and so is Teochew Ah Hia, to maintain the status quo.

The rest, especially Aung Juan Soon Chee, has reasons to be pessimistic about winning, given the past precedent of even Hainan Ah Ko under SDP having lost, and in worse times for Sinkies and under a worse PAP in 2011.

And if Aung Juan Soon Chee or Madcow Goh Meng Seng lose again, it will be 4th and 3rd time unlucky for them, respectively. They can retire after the next GE.

PAP will win! But my guess is that they will not achieve the 75%majority. At least four GRC will go to opposition. LKY will not stand for elections and his son will take over Tanjong Pagar.

Not really lah. U must remember that Aljunied GRC is a special and isolated case in GE 2011, because Teochew Ah Hia went there, and 54% Sinkies there took pity that there may be no opposition left if even Ah Hia lost.

That's why even good candidates like SDP Hainan Ah Ko and the NSP scholar couple also lost in GE 2011. Because 60% Sinkies were really very scared they might accidentally vote PAP out when WP is still not ready to take over as govt.

Where are all the Folks that believe Workers Party has strategy up its' sleeves to win in elections?

I am impressed and convinced by the ANON in My Singapore News, who posted daily that WP is not ready to form the Government and Low Thia Khiang is not prepared to be the Prime Minister, though I am confident that Sylvia Lim will fit the Premier ship.

ANON Commenter has a very respectable stamina in his/her stance. Many social political bloggers have given up.

Are you Wong Kan Seng disguising yourself as an anti-PAP blogger?

I strongly believe that black horse Png Eng Huat will fit the Premier ship.

Sylvia is too embroiled in the dirt and grime of the sccc and accounting saga of their town council. It reflects very badly on her poor management. White horse ex-banker CSM was a total whitewash, a total disappointment of many who hoped he is "The One". Even if he bucks up now, it is too late. Ah Hia will be the mastermind behind Png, aka chairman of the CEC aka figurehead.

Png has demonstrated he has the talents and the heart to serve the spoilt sinkies of Singapore who aspires the good life, sipping Starbucks in aircon, and expects the good life to continue until ripe old age with little or no competition.

Wait till Feb 23 budget. PAP 70%. Win.

The goodies are in this Budget.

Besides Pai mea package, more pai mea goodies for the oldies. Above 65 got annual pensions.

Can go Genting often now.

Pardon my ignorance, but what I don't get is why the PAP thinks only they can give goodies.
A new government can do exactly the same.
Anyone who thinks only PAP can give goodies must be a complete idiot...or am I wrong?

Tiok. And if this is the best a person of CSM calibre can perform, might as well get another insurance trainer Ah Lian to be MP instead.

That's why PM Lee just need to take one look at Teochew Ah Hia, and another at CSM, can already conclude with 93% confidence that 60% will sure vote PAP next election one. And maybe the next as well.

PAP will win lah. 50.000001% also considered win lah. Moreover, its in GRC mode.

My ANALysis in a bold attempt to predict the future:

PAP win majority seats, lose maybe (5-10 or more) seats. Next Day Headlines:-

Post election: PAP "stunned" by the result.

Singapore PM (Dr) Ng Eng Hean scurries to form a new cabinet--- and decides to include 3 non PAP in ministerial portfolios. One third to half of PM Ng's cabinet will comprise of "new Singaporeans"---and individuals hail from China, India, Russia, The Philippines and the European Union...

patriot said...

Hehe......

PM Ng Eng Hen.

I like the Prediction but I doubt Ng Eng Hen or any other Incumbents to take the Premiership of a falling Dynasty.

Well, on the other hand, I cant rule out Kamikaze existing amongst the many Military Commanders in the Cabinet either.

@ patriot:

I seriously doubt that "the dynasty is falling". Sure, more people are coming out to express negative sentiments, but that doesn't mean that The Benign Dictatorship is in trouble.

Far from it. I'll bet that the majority of the "new citizens" support TBD -- in total: heart and souls, farts and arseholes.

To Matilah Singapura.

Me has no dispute with culture having a big role in a society.

I oso believe there is no immortal being and that all dynasty inevitably falls.
