During their many house visits and times spent walking the ground, () member shared about a resident he had come upon who told him she had never been afraid to vote for the opposition parties despite having a daughter who worked as a civil servant.

Yesterday (Nov 26) evening, while Vice-Chairman and Bryan Lim visited houses in Marsiling, they shared that they came across one Mdm Tan who had a rather interesting perspective.

Lim wrote that “we spoke to Mdm Tan who revealed that even though her daughter is a civil servant, she has never been afraid to vote for us”

She said to him, “What is there to be afraid? Just look at the citizens in other parts of the world. They also vote for different political parties in their respective countries”.

“It is their freedom of choice”, she added.

Mdm Tam continued, “Singaporeans are worried about losing their jobs if they vote for the Opposition? Look here. It doesn’t mean that when you vote for the PAP, you will automatically get the job”.

“You may get the bowl but it is up to your own capabilities & hard work to fill it up with rice. The PAP is not going to fill it up for you”, Mdm Tan told SDP members.

To this, Lim wrote, “For the umpteenth time, I cannot emphasize more that Singapore is not equal to the PAP & the PAP is not Singapore”.

He added that the same logic can be applied elsewhere in the world. “Supporters of the Labour Party are definitely not anti-UK & Democrats’ supporters are no less loyal to the USA than the Republican ones”.

He summed up his post explaining that politics is a contest of ideologies.

“The PAP has its own vision for Singapore. So does the (SDP)”, he added. /TISG
