Parliament ended at 7.15 pm today...Interesting debate...I heard Amy Khor, some PAP MPs which I do not want to know their names then Grace Fu, Chen Show Mao, Lily Neo, Inderjit Singh, Gerald Giam and Lina Chiam..Lui Ah Tuck..spoke.
Each got their say mainly supporting the motion....only Lily Neo and
Inderjit Singh 'abstain' their support. if the whip is lifted they would
have vote against !!
was passionate on the elderly being left out, on community living and
proposed an Elderly Needy and Medical Fund to assist the poor elderly.
Amy Khor spoke on the S'pore Core...I was wandering is it Hardcore pornography!!
Chen Show Mao spoke on the older workforce and how employers are not
willing to employ seniors...Obvious He opposed the motion. He overshot
his time allowed.
Grace Fu talked cock and sing song with graphic
of family graphs and how young generation needed to support older
senior...She obviously after her long rhetorics support the motion...In
fact, I slept intermittently with her boring speech, also in
mandarin. She spoke for almost 45 minutes...roughly...
Giam delivered a good speech on how to sustain a population for a
dynamic S'pore...He pointed out a false dilemma of PAP toilet paper. He
was rebutted fiercely by Iswaran and Tan Chuan-jin..
Singh screwed up the policy of the govt white paper..pointing out the
flaw and took a potshot at GCT which just walked out during his
speech..on the oversight of population even during GCT's time..Inderjet
did warn about the problem the govt would face..He is less
Speaker Halimah by then went off and replaced
by Deputy Speaker Seah Kian Peng taking the Speaker chair and Lina Chiam (NCMP) still
addressed him as Mdm Speaker, but was quick to apologise saying she did
not know Mdm Halimah was replaced...Everyone laughed in the house! So
Seah Kian Peng for a moment became a she!
Now the tagline is
S'porean Core by Amy Khor and I really do not know what the hell it
is???....I really wonder is it a hardcore or what of the White toilet
But the best was Sylvia Lim's tagline (during her
speech yesterday..Today she did not speak).... of a sustainable
Spore for a dynamic population ..not PAP's sustainable population for a
So, in fact there is nothing to debate on
with the minority voices of opposition...In the end...the motion will be
passed ..whether S'poreans like it or not!!
That is not a S'prean Core but hardcore PAP!!
