Goh Chok Tong Distances Himself, From Tin Pei Ling

Given his way, it seems doubtful that Mr.Goh would want to have Ms.Tin Pei Ling on his 'team'.

It was reported in TodayOnline, that "When asked whether the PAP's youngest candidate, Ms Tin Pei Ling, 27, will be an asset or liability to his team in the Marine Parade Group Representation Constituency, he said he will not know until the election results are out".

He could not bring himself to say that she would be an asset.

Mr.Goh then goes on to say :

"Of course unfortunately for her, YouTube, people have put it on, and then it's a complete distortion and of course some soundbites of her which pitted her as a rather light weight person. Well, that's a superficial view of her."

We watched an entire interview of Ms.Tin, and still found her terribly light-weight. The only reason she is on the PAP ticket, we suspect, is because she is young, and the PAP is under threat, of being rejected by Singapore's youth. Ms.Tin Pei Ling, then, is their superficial solution to their problem!

Mr Goh also said "... Is this election about Tin Pei Ling? No. This election is more than just Marine Parade GRC. It's about the future of Singapore."

We must point out to him, that elections anywhere, are automatically always about the future of countries. Stating the obvious is not going to save him from having the details scrutinised.

And this particular election in Singapore, is also, among other issues, about rising costs, about the loss of jobs of Singaporeans to too many outsiders, about Mr.Goh and his colleagues fat salaries, about the dubious quality of some of the PAP's candidates, and about the need to have more oppositionists in Parliaments to stop the in-bred PAP from going wrong. Which they most certainly have.

    She is now singapore's sarah palin..and a collateral damage.

  2. Many of the founders of PAP like Goh Keng Swee, Ong Pang Boon, Toh Chin Chye and Hon Sui Sien are highly respectable. But after them the subsequent PAP leaders need to be blindfolded and lined up against the wall ( surely you know what I mean ) and despatched into permanent oblivion for they entered politics for personal aggrandizement of greed for power and monetary interest and for bringing great suffering to the people at large.

  3. Mr Goh, Tin Pei Ling is a liability to you and PAP because it has demonstrated the poor judgment call of PAP. Your "loyal" support of her regardless of what the citizens of Singapore is telling through various channels is also demonstrating your refusal to listen to Singaporean opinion. I am a PAP supporter and I request you reconsider the party position with Ms Tin immediately before she jeopardise the Singapore Dreams that PAP can deliver.
