PAP pot should not call the AHPETC kettle black

When I read Minister Shanmugam’s lengthy Facebook post sliming WP, it gave me the impression that he’s someone highly overpaid.

Two wrongs certainly don’t make a right but in reality, WP’s lapses pale in comparison with PAP’s/PAP town councils’.

Regardless of WP not keeping its election promises, Shanmugam should not have assumed he could stand on moral high ground to lecture opposition members. Not when after PAP had sold public assets to its own $2 company AIM behind HDB residents’ back.

Shanmugam’s description of AHPETC sounded like the public’s perception of PAP town councils.

For example, when he said “mismanagement of its town council”, didn’t PAP MPs alsomismanaged their town councils so badly that HDB lifts have started breaking down regularly in record time, caused a resident to suffer spinal injury and another getting killed, a record number of residents inconvenienced, etc?

And to confirm PAP’s mismanagement of its town councils, the BCA had to be roped to save PAP’s hide by introducing measures to tighten lift maintenance and enhance lift safety.

Below is a list of descriptions by Shanmugam which could also have aptly described PAP/its town councils:

– The rot is at the top.
– Suppressing the truth.
– Truth is a tradable commodity.
– Used highly irregular shortcuts. (for economic growth)
– Obviously … thought … they could play … residents – and Singaporeans – for dummies.

Unless PAP’s house is in order, the pot should even try to call the kettle black.Follow us on Social Media
