Bukit Batok By-Election ... Whose Side is Chee Soon Juan On?

Whose side is Chee on?
I can forgive Dr Chee’s many flaws, but there’s one thing in particular that I really can’t stand.
And that is how he consistently puts Singapore down overseas. I mean, I’m not even asking him to defend us (clearly that’s too much to ask for), but could he just for once, stop badmouthing us to foreigners to make himself look less of a failure? It’s downright embarrassing.
To defend his lack of success in anything, he chooses to drag Singapore down by repeating his venomous words to anyone who cares to carry his remarks.
What are some of his greatest hits? Calling us a country without human rights, without democracy. FTAs are tools for exploitation.  State-controlled media who has an axe to grind with him. Seriously, this is probably his favourite hobby.
Maybe instead of penning articles and making videos slamming Singapore and telling everyone how ‘backward’ and ‘undemocratic’ we are, perhaps he should spend more time working on himself. Perhaps, he can also provide some solutions and telling us how he can better our lives?
Maybe his real loyalty is to other countries and their interests, not to Singapore and our way of life. But he needs to remember that we are the ones who hold the vote, not these foreigners he’s pandering to. He can’t slam Singapore and Singaporeans overseas, and then come back and ask us to vote for him.
I mean, whose side is he really on? One thing for sure, it’s not the side of Singaporeans.

The Two Faces of Mrs Lee Suet Fern

The Two Faces of Mrs Lee Suet Fern ....

lee suet fern qflp

Qualifying Foreign Law Practice (QFLP)

What Lee Suet Fern said: "What are the challenges to the Singaporean firms, and the Singapore lawyer? You know, you hear of this phrase, “barbarians at the gate”? I actually don’t think they are at the gate, they are right inside, in the bedroom as well.”

Reality .... Lee Suet Fern's own firm is in a tie-up with a foreign firm. She herself has let them “in[to] the bedroom”?

What Lee Suet Fern said; "I suppose at Stamford, that’s what we did, when we did our deal with Morgan Lewis. It was an attempt … to play on a global plain … without just being a slave at some QFLP.”

So she wanted a QFLP so that she could be a slave?

What Lee Suet Fern said: “… one of the challenges with the QFLPs is … where do you go, as a career? Many Singapore lawyers I know who have joined the QFLP have … realised that unless perhaps you are Ox-Bridge, or Harvard or Yale, they don’t know how to recognise the quality of a Singapore lawyer.”

But .... Suet Fern's own firm is full of Singapore lawyers. So either (i) she didn’t care what happened to them, when she asked for the QFLP, or (ii) she is now being sour, because she couldn’t get the QFLP.

What Lee Suet Fern said: "What we did was very, very transformative. When we did this, many of the QFLPs … complained and said: ‘You didn’t tell us this was an available option to us, or we would have thought differently."

But .... Really, the only reason why she used this structure was because she couldn’t get the QFLPs.

Lee Suet Fern is probably why people say you cannot trust a lawyer.

Reform Party Jafri Basron - Hardcore Opposition. But turns to PAP MP for Help

Jafri Basron is your typical hardcore opposition supporter. Everything the Government or PAP does or says is wrong in his opinion. Jafri is also not shy to tell the world.

Ironically, when it comes time to get help, instead of turning to Kenneth Jeyaretnam and his Reform Party, Jafri Basron turns to his PAP MP Amrin Amin. This was reported by Red Wire Times in which Jafri went to Amrin Amin's Meet-the-People Session and asked for help.

Claiming that he needed money to go for a job interview as a security guard, despite knowing who Jafri Basron was, Amrin proceeded to give Jafri an EZ-Link card to make the trip for his interview. Amrin even took the extra effort to call the hiring company to ask that they consider Jafri favorably.

Shockingly, when Amrin called the company, he was told that there was no such interview. When Amrin attempted to call Jafri at the mobile number he provided, it was a fictitious number.

Singaporeans, you be the judge. Is this the type of opposition members you want in Parliament?
