() has not responded to Singapore People’s Party (SPP) chairman Lina Chiam’s note taking issue with SDP’s recent publication.
Mrs Chiam had said late last night that “Dr. Chee did not seek nor receive permission to include Mr. Chiam’s image in this (SDP’s) newsletter,” and that “Mr Chiam has not given his endorsement to any candidate for the upcoming Bukit Batok by-election.”
Even if SDP has not officially responded to the Chiams, some of the political parties’ supporters have taken issue with the SPP chairman’s note. The SDP Facebook fan page, SDP for a better tomorrow said:
“It is quite petty for Mrs Lina Chiam to take issue with the use of a photograph that was really taken between Dr and Mr Chiam See Tong.
For her to say the SDP did not seek permission for use of the photograph is absurd because the photograph was not taken by and does not belong to the SPP or the Chiams in the first place.
It was taken during a post-GE2011 dialogue session organised by TOC, in which Dr Chee won the loudest applause from the audience when he arrived and went on stage.”
The SDP fan page has over 300 members and it was created in 2012.
The Singapore People’s Party’s supporters too have jumped to the defence of their leaders. The Facebook page SPP Fans said:
“This is a silly response by the fans of SDP – especially their claim that Chee received the loudest cheer at the TOC event. The loudest cheer on that day was reserved for the STAR of the event and veteran opposition politician Chiam See Tong.
With arrogance like this from the supporters of , is it any wonder that Mr and Mrs Chiam have not endorsed the man?”
The SPP Fans page is more recently set-up, just over a year ago, and it has about 400 members.
