Facebook user Liew has alleged that he frequently sees a group of ruling party parliamentarians playing golf at the Orchid Country Club in Yishun, even though he believes these politicians are not members of the club.

Liew further shared a video of several luxury cars, such as a McLaren and a Bentley that cost millions, parked at the club’s carpark and alleged that the vehicles are driven by People’s Action Party (PAP) MPs. Liew alleged that the white Bentley captured in the video belongs to a Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC MP and claimed:

“Every Wednesday morning a bunch of PAP MP will play golf at Orchid country club. I am a paying member there and I am very sure they are not member. I am wondering is this perks make known to the public? Is it in line with what they so call clean wages.
“I have taken a Video in the car park. They are all driving luxury car like Mclaren, Bentley that cost more than 1 m. Singapore now has no more civil servant, but only civil boss, that’s why they are driving bigger cars and living in bigger houses than us. We voted them to control us, sound very stupid hoh. The white Bentley SKK 418 R is own by Bishan MP”

Liew’s video has garnered over 12.000 views and more than 300 shares since he published it on his Facebook wall earlier today.

Meanwhile, another netizen alleged that ruling party politicians frequently asked him for free upgrades to first class, when he was apparently working with Singapore Airlines.

The netizen, Facebook user David Lam Kiap Tan, further claimed that when he began working with teleservices operator M1, PAP MPs would seek “free exchanges for new phones”:

While several netizens responding to Liew’s claims have responded by urging others to vote these MPs out at the next General Election, several others have expressed doubts at the veracity of Liew’s allegations and have opined that this may just be “fake news”.

One such netizen, Facebook user Terence Tan, pointed out that even if the MPs are not members of the country club, they may have been signed in by their friends who are members:
