LEE HSIEN LOONG BLAMES INCOMPETENCY ON YOUNG VOTERS

“You are talking about a generational change, you are talking about new social norms, new technology, new experiences of a generation which is growing up, which sees a different world and would like to have aspirations of their own and not just the aspirations of the older generation.” ~ PM Lee Hsien Loong

When you can’t perform in exams, do you blame the questions? Or so it seems for PM Lee Hsien Loong who had just received one of the worst electoral results in his party’s history. In his response to a journalist at the Istana, PM Lee attributed his party’s falling popularity to not being able to meet younger voters’ expectations. Implicitly, PM Lee seems to suggest that the slew of train breakdowns, the recurrent flooding, the ministerial salaries the overcrowding, the depression of salaries, the spiraling cost of living are all “young voters’ expectations” and have nothing to do with the general populace.

Given that PM Lee did not even specify or explain what are the “young voters’ expectations”, it is hard to figure if young voters do really have expectations that are so out of the world, or is this the Prime Minister’s feeble attempt to explain his falling popularity.

The only solution for PAP to maintain its stronghold is simply to come clean and get their own house right, instead of blaming young voters and the Opposition. The problems in our public transport, housing, employment and retirement are not new, they have been festering since 2005 where PM Lee had already took office. It is PM Lee’s sheer uselessness that not a single of these issues can be solved within 8 years.

The PAP has lost its political will to serve Singaporeans, and instead putting their attention on profit-generating machineries like the ERP, CPF, COE and foreign worker levy. Many citizens have lost hope on the PAP for a better Singapore, but unfortunately, the majority 60% of the citizens remain subscribed to the PAP’s dogma that Singapore will be doomed without PAP.

As more new citizens are taken in each year to form the new foundation of PAP votes, in exchange of their immunity to NS liability, young Singaporeans will not be able to vote the PAP out no matter how much the PAP screw up. New citizens are very worried they will be liable for NS if an Opposition party become government, hence the PAP’s presence is vital to their survival. Young Singaporeans who want to have a future should begin their emigration plans before they grow old and clean toilets for a retirement.
