Dr Chee Soon Juan, his strength and weakness in the politics of Singapore.


Many of us are happy that Dr Chee Soon Juan (CSJ) is being discharged as a bankrupt. World media reported that too !!

Personally, I have met him many times. Let us remember the tumultous years of political finger-pointing and fabrication that put Soon Juan in a bad light. Right and wrong is just a thin line apart.
Let us bear in mind that politics is always that UNSCRUPULOUS !! A Chinese saying:"The victor is king."

Yes! the years of (mindless) courageous confrontation head-on with PAP was a real setback for Soon Juan. And with the media over-emphasized on issues and incident affecting CSJ, he was given a very unfair treatment! He believed in that lone crusade with no other opposition party playing any part of support.
His courageous endeavour was futile against an autocratic goverment of pAP !

And his jail terms for opposing the authoritarian and draconic policies were all his belief for a better S'pore. But he forgot that power controls and dictates. So CSJ was like an egg knocking on a rock.....incident after incident

In one of my articles, I sounded to CSJ why be a jailbird rather than parliamentary bird where he can really spread his wings for the people.
I also conversed with him in his office before the 2011 GE. But then his wings were clipped because of the bankruptcy on him.

A new awakening of political will and determination has seen a change in CSJ's confrontational politics to a more participating one...It is a good sign for the S'pore Democratic Party (SDP)  and maybe for the people of S'pore!!

We know many S'poreans still brand CSJ as stupid and mindless with the past various episodes that he encountered with the PAP...And many have discounted his worth and personality.


Let us see the greater picture of CSJ entering 'rational' politics come 2016 and give him a chance to serve us as our vocal alternative voice in parliament when voted in....

We do need courageous people and people with the angst to be fearless with PAP but with a sense of flexibility to debate issue... not head-on belligerence with the PAP..

Only with able and daring people in parliament will the citizens of S'pore not suffer the indignity of the PAP's whim and fancy of their atrocious policies forced down all citizens gullet!!

How long can citizens take it with duress and great stress than to do the right thing and vote for greater parliament representation of alternatives voices!!??

All know too well, the cronies and scholar ministers are but the systems digits,
harping the master's voice...safe-guarding their exorbitant paycheck!!!

How long do citizens want to be so suppressed under an oppressive govt.of PAP??

The ONUS is on all of us CITIZENS to cast the right vote for a change for a better S'pore !!

PEOPLE LIKE SOON JUAN SHOULD BE GIVEN A CHANCE OF REPRIEVE AND SERVE US IN PARLIAMENT, THEN ONLY WE CITIZENS CAN JUDGE HIS TRUE PERSONALITY AND PERFORMANCE....
