One would expect someone who had to spend his life burdened with a name like Vivian, and a member of a minority, to show more empathy. But Mr.Vivian has shown that he will sink to any depth, to win an election.
He has clearly picked up a thing or two from Malaysia's Mr.Mahathir. Mr.Mahathir too, will do and use anything, true or false, and no matter how low, to win an election.
Mr.Vivian has asked that some opposition politicians should 'come out of the closet'. Perhaps, like in Borat's Kazakhstan, he would like all gays to wear blue hats, next? Or perhaps he seeks a 'final solution' to this 'problem' like the Nazis did? Is Mr.Vivian, perhaps, a closet Nazi?
This is the ugly face of the PAP, a discriminatory face, and it is a shame to Singapore. Mr.Vivian will not find it so easy to get a visa to some Western countries, the next time he applys. Such homophobia should not be tolerated, and has no place in civilised nations.
We do not know whom he is accusing, but we wonder whether he is certain, that there is nobody 'in the closet' in the PAP.
The silver lining in this deplorable episode, is that as the PAP becomes ever more desperate, it shows ever more clearly, that they are headed for a thrashing in the elections. And if anybody is unfit for high office, it is unscrupulous politicians like Mr.Vivian.
