GE 2011 - Over and Done!

Post  Ikon on Sun May 08, 2011 1:56 pm

So the results are out, we have more Opposition in parliament then expected, and they also lost the stronghold in Potong Pasir by a mere 100 plus votes. A Minister also lost his seat, over and done and lets look to the next 5 years for any significant changes in our political system.

In my instance, my ward is the Pasir Ris - Ponggol GRC. The opposition was from SDA, a bit disappointing in their effort to convince the residence here. We did not even feel their presence at all during the campaigning and worst still I only know who the opposition was few days before polling day. It some how reflects their attitude in taking care of the GRC and thus doesn't look promising. I was also in the SMC Sengkang East this morning and also noted that this SMC is being contested by SDA, I can see poster and banners for the candidate but not in my GRC. Clearly they were concentrating in the SMC and totally pull all their resources there, stupid strategy and I also heard that funding was also the reason but it should not be an excuse.

I stayed up late just to get the results first hand. Am glad that my GRC, Aljunied has a new set of MPs. How will they perform in the next 5 years? We'll just have to wait and see. The victorious WP just came by in a pick up to thank the residents for voting them in. It's sad that we lost a good Malay MP and Foreign Minister George Yeo. He's quite a likeable person here but guess that's not enough. Frankly, the PAP MPs have been invisible to me in the last 5 years. Even when i seek help from the MP in the meet the people session, i didn't get to see the MP, only his assistant. Makes me wonder if we voted in the MP or his assistant.. Let's see if WP can engage the residents here. Time will tell..

Consider yourself lucky as the opposition comes in only after most of the upgrading work has been done in your constituency. Also keep your eyes on the grasses, the last time I stayed in an opposition ward was in Potong Pasir and the first thing I noticed was that nobody come to cut the grasses for a long time Very Happy

Ok will keep a close lookout on the length of the grass. If nothing is done and the grass becomes a mini jungle, then i know we're in deep s**t.. Shocked

Very Happy That's just an indicator, I still remember the time I was staying in Potong Pasir and Mr. Chiam just came into power. He had lots of problem, e.g. when he wanted to hold functions, he was not allowed to do so at the Community Centre, because basically they says the C.C. belongs to the PA., which in turn is the PAP. So he has to do all his functions by erecting tents on empty lots.

The same can be expected for the new power in your GRC, many of the established amenities they will be not able to freely utilize it if it belongs to the old establishment. It will take time like engaging new contractors for cutting the grass and your blocks will take a longer time for repainting and etc. These are all unnoticeable as long as they get rid of the rubbish everyday!

Why should i move? My conservancy charges will probably not increase for the next few years. The same can't be said for the other areas. My place just complted main upgrading including lift upgrading. So there's really nothing to look forward to. All i want is a clean and safe place. Won't be too difficult for the new MPs to maintain here.

Bro you should not even consider, you are now in that piece of land between heaven and hell Laughing Stay put and sit on the fence, one thing for sure Bedok Reservoir in recent times we see some of the HDB houses being enbloc, now the chances of that happening in the next 5 years is NIL! Laughing
