The Cost of Opposition
You’ll wait to get your housing upgraded
By Sangwon Suh and Santha Oorjitham / Singapore
http://www-cgi.cnn.com/ASIANOW/asiaweek/97/0117/cs3.html

Chiam complains of a “very unethical disbursement of public funds.” He says that town councils run by the PAP “have almost unlimited funds. Their main source of money is the Ministry of National Development,” of which Yao is senior parliamentary secretary. Chiam has to make do with the maintenance rates collected from residents and the $280,000 that each town council receives annually from the government. “The world is divided between those who support the PAP and those who don’t,” says Chiam. “If you don’t vote for the PAP, you don’t get the facilities. These facilities are provided by public funds, yet the government is using public funds to gain votes.”

The PM counters that “you can argue that the money belongs to the people, but you still have to queue up to receive it.” Those who support the government and its programs most strongly, he says, get served first.

General Elections 2006

http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com/Archive/Soc/soc.culture.singapore/2006-03/msg04848.html

Mr Goh says: "I do not want the two constituencies to be left
behind, especially Potong Pasir, an old estate. Five years down the road,
assuming Chiam do win, there will be no upgrading
.

"After that, we got to ask ourselves whether the estate is
worthwhile upgrading. I'm talking about Lorong 8. By then, the estate
would be around 35 years old and the lease is only 99 years, so
economically, is it worthwhile?

"My own view is Hougang should be upgraded, otherwise another five
years, another 10 years, it would become rather derelict compared to
other estates in Singapore
."

Aljunied voters will regret choosing WP: MM Lee
By Jeffrey Oon | Yahoo! Newsroom – Sat, Apr 30, 2011
http://sg.news.yahoo.com/aljunied-voters-will-regret-choosing-wp--mm-lee.html

Speaking to reporters during a visit to Tampines on Friday night, MM Lee said, "If Aljunied decides to go that way, well Aljunied has five years to live and repent."

"It may well happen that they win, in which case the people of Aljunied live with the results," he was quoted as saying on The Straits Times.

"The only way people learn is when they have to pay a price. From time to time we may lose, and the voters pay the price, " he said.

He further cautioned, "If Singaporeans are that fickle, they will have to pay a price, the hard way."

He highlighted the example of opposition-held ward Hougang where, "If you have the wrong government, your property prices go right down. Ask why in Hougang the property is not as high as their neighbours."

HDB upgrading – holding voters to ransom
Andrew Loh, The Online Citizen April 13, 2011

Should a political party such as the PAP use public funds to further its own partisan and discriminatory political agenda through prejudicial policies and practices?

The obvious answer is no, and for several reasons:

1.    Not everyone who pay taxes, where Government funds come from, support the PAP. They do so because of Singapore, the nation and country, which the Government is tasked to look after as caretaker.
2.    It is morally reprehensible that Singaporeans are discriminated against because of their political beliefs by the very Government which is supposed to be caring for them and protecting their rights to support any  political party they wish.
3.   The Government should respect the people’s choice in voting for the opposition and allocate public funds fairly.
