    Sinkies are garbage. So of course they love their own kind.

    Not quite sure what they were so afraid. They had stacked the deck so much that it was almost impossible for her to lose.

    The 'elected' Presidency is purely a ceremony role whose impact and connection with the man on the street is irrelevant.
    Singaporeans are generally a acquiescent bunch and will just shrug their shoulders and carry on their lives.

    Don't expect to see any shit storms on Twitter or other social media outlets. We are not a nation of political protest or dissent when it comes to perceived injustice.
    For that alone, we get what we deserve.

    PM Lee Kuan Yew: “Whoever governs Singapore must have that iron in him. Or give it up. This is not a game of cards. This is your life and mine. I’ve spent a whole lifetime building this and as long as I’m in charge, nobody is going to knock it down.”

    Yes the Council of Presidential Advisers have more power.
    The Worker's Party is the best opposition party.

    This outcome is totally not surprising to say the least. But thanks to PJ for saying so anyway.

    Or perhaps a wolf in sheep's clothing who decides.

    Insightful comments from Derek da Cunha



    "Now you might understand why I was unusually quiet about the PE over the past many months, declining or not responding to interview requests, which included on-camera and print media interviews, and also messages from private citizens.

    The day Dr Tony Tan narrowly won PE2011, I concluded that it was very unlikely that there would be a contest the next time round. The precedent had already been established by S.R. Nathan, who was “elected” twice via walkovers. I had in fact expected the Government to tighten the qualifying criteria for candidates shortly after PE2011 but it only dealt with this matter after GE2015 where it secured a hefty mandate in terms of both parliamentary seats and the popular vote.

    What is the point to even comment or read anything about the presidential “election” when one is quite certain there would be none? I had already stated publicly that I was against a reserved election and, therefore, to me there was nothing more to say.

    It is my view that those intellectuals who added their two cents worth on this matter did not do themselves any favours. This is my personal view.

    In the same way that when I saw the date of the IPS Forum on the Reserved Presidential Election, held last Friday (Sep 8, 2017), I knew perfectly well that the forum would have to be held BEFORE it was announced that there would be no contest. If it was held after, do you seriously think there would have been any interest in the forum?

    Most of those folks who had voted for Mr Tan Jee Say during PE2011 and, therefore, effectively denied Dr Tan Cheng Bock victory, and most of those others who had commented and read up avidly on the PE coming up to this point, you were simply enthralled and awed by smoke and mirrors.

    The Government will not pay any political price for this end result. This is on account of the election cycle, where we are still at least two years away from the next parliamentary general election. Whatever unhappiness some might now feel will evaporate into thin air in a matter of weeks."

    Madam President addresses her throngs of supporters after nobody shows up to challenge her nomination. Lots of people accept her as Malay and as the People's President.

    Do something meaningful. Join the grassroots. Peoples' Association all the way!

    Holy cow, within hours of nomination, the govt reserved 2 lots, erected signboards, painted the lot boundary red. She is certainly staying in Yishun. Truly a drama queen. She is trying to be the people's President. Old Man never queued up for chicken wings but his son did. This is the same. When you have nothing to contribute and unlikely to achieve anything that worthwhile, you look for acceptance by trying to appear humble.
