Police – No offence to distribute flyers by PAP activists

It is reported in the media today that the distribution of flyers by PAP activists ‘urging residents to quiz their Workers’ Party (WP) Members of Parliament over the accounting and corporate governance lapses committed  by the Aljunied Hougang Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC)’ is not an offence.  ‘The distribution of flyers in itself is not an offence in Singapore.’ By ruling that there is no offence in the flyers of PAP activitists, it also means that the content in this is ‘no offence’ too.

Let’s be clear that there are two elements here, the distribution of flyers and the content. The first part is a clear cut thing. The second part can be a bit dicey and subject to different interpretations. For instance there is another flyer put up by Roy Ngerng in his blog and reposted in TRE urging the people to quiz the govt on improper governance and lost of more than $100b by GIC and Temasek. Roy is asking the people to make copies of the flyer for distribution to the people. The distribution of this flyer is definitely not an offence. What about its content?

Would the distribution of Roy’s flyers be an offence? What do you think?

Sinkies need NOT be vengeful like their Rulers.
This sue that sue and made every topics into offences and or libel and conspiracy.
The Breakdowns in CONversations are are big letdowns where they showed ABSOLUTELY NO TRUST AND FAITH BETWEEN THE RULERS AND THE PEOPLE.

Any country where the Rulers and the People suspect each others of bad faith does not last. The Closing Chapter for Sin is getting near. I just CANT see it otherwise.

Sin will just end with it's Founding Father.

Is it true?
Only in PAP's Singapore.
Where it can be illegal to ask questions.
Like this how to build a world class country?
If a millionaire PAPig is afraid of questions ... maybe you have to ask why.

"Police – No offence to distribute flyers by PAP activists"


This is one of the price, among many, that the WP has to pay for not being ready to be govt.

Nothing is free, and not being ready to be govt and in opposition also come at a price, u know. And the price can even be hefty. Don't believe, just ask Aung Juan Soon Chee.

Tiok. And most critical of all, the opposition have to pay the ultimate price of not being voted by the 60% and hence lose big every election. And why should the next one be any different, u tell me lah?

Hi redbean
More on the destructive power of High Frequency Trading in case you are still looking for more evidence:

50 pages of bibliography and references to support the thesis that HFT is bad.

I wonder if our MAS and LKY School of Public Policy employees got read any such material or not?
Read only the "correct" stuff.

I think got lah. But maybe after reading, they follow LKY style and ask themselves this one word question. "So?"

And then they realise that the Sinkie opposition, being also comprising only real Sinkies of course, is still not ready to be govt.

The distribution of flyers or any published material SHOULD NEVER be an offence---even if the content is "uncomfortable" or "libellous".

How to test the "integrity" of the SPF? Simple. The disgruntled parties should organise a flyer distribution campaign of their own...and see what happens.

@ patriot:

>> Sin will just end with it's Founding Father.

No, it most DEFINITELY won't! Relac lah brudder.

The majority of young people (say below age 40) have had just about enough of the PAP's bullshit. And I don't blame them. They are smart, cyber-savvy, many already well-travelled and WEALTHIER than previous generations. They are also much more outspoken than their parents' and grandparents' generations.

I gauge the "health" of a cuntree by several metrics, but the most important one is how "anti-authoritarian" the young are, and our youngsters collectively give a "healthy dose" of collective FUCK YOU! to the PAP government on a DAILY BASIS. (for proof surf over to sammyboy or Hardware Zone).

How do you think that the ruthless tekkaning of Roy N looks to the average youngster? They HATE it. They are on Roy's side. To them, the big bad govt is "bully kechick", and they absolutely know that anyone of them could be next if they piss off the govt too much.

To them, they absolutely WON'T ACCEPT a PAP-led future for their cuntree. If the govt doesn't change their attitude, these youngsters full of verve and vim are going to eventually teach the govt. a nice lesson.

Do they have a viable alternative? No, but it doesn't matter. That will evolve.

C'mon patriot, all of us were young once. Have you forgotten how it is, to have hope, to have passion, to have dreams for an awesome future, to aspire?

I think the oldies need to take some time out to reflect. We had our day. The future belongs to our young, and it is about time we all move the fuck over and hand it to them---for better, or worse.

Has anyone organised the lorry yet? ;-)

Is there a protocol for the use of the gun carriage?

Will Kee Chiu be in charge of gun carriage funeral? He was involved in LKY wife gun carriage funeral in 2010. He stood close together with LKY family members then and was even mistaken by bloggers to be part of the Family!

That seems to be kee chiu's core competence.

When you are The Power. All that you decide and say counts. All your boot-lickers, ass-lickers, lap-dogs, hound-dogs, pappies, coolies, sycophants, cronies, parasites, beholders, beholdens and balls-carriers will sing your tune.

We have come a long way to be able to observe, perceive, discern, analyse and interpret the System the operates in Sin City. There is One System but Two Interpretations of the Laws, and alos two separate Applications of the Laws. It all depends on whose side you are with/on.

You will have to wait long long, long, long, and long long for the day the PAP falls. Then everything that is considered not illegal today may suddenly become illegal. Big big investigations long and short will go on day by day, night by night. Many people will go to jail, though some would have already took flight to their Safe Haven.

Or may be this is only a loser's dream.

As long as the WP or any other political parties are not ready to take over from the PAP and to govern Singapore, it can only be a wild dream for the suffering Sinkies.

As long as 60.1% of Sinners continue to vote PAP, all Sinkies will continue to suffer at the hands of the PAP elitist elites.

As long as the PAP has its ways, it will win Each and Every General Elections. With more and more New Citizens and PRs and FTs being imported and more and more Sinkies refusing to give birth to more babies, the Extinction of the Original Local Born Sinkies is fast closing in.

"A Brave New World" of New Citizens will be established in replacement of "A Coward Old World" of the Old Sinkies.

This has been the deliberate policy envisioned and engineered more than 40 years ago by the Master Strategist of Social Engineering - the Great Visionary.

When a Sinkie is blocked one has to use a plunger or a piece of wire with steel brushes to unclogged the blockage. Ouch.

Hi RB, speed. The interpretation of the law in Singapore is strictly dependent on who is in charge. It has always been that way. The "investigation" by the police on the legality of the issue was in my opinion just wayang. Agree?

Thank you Anon 10:23.

This is a piece of very good info. Will go thru it. Unfortunately all the exhange regulators are practising the within 200m is an offence and inside the centre is no principles.

Until the day when an upright govt decides to haul them to courts, the crooks would continue to play the market with the consent of the regulators and their govts.

There is a need to keep drumming these evidences into their heads. Hope MAS and CAD would do something about it before it is too late.
