On "By-Election" And "Good Politics".
The Ruling Party now propagandizes the concept of 3Cs of "Good Politics" - clean, constructive and continuous. Such concept cannot hold water when we have:
1) Behind-the-queue estates upgrading for Opposition Wards. Let us not forget that citizens in such ward also fullfill their citizenship duties like doing Naitonal Service, paying their taxes, etc. It would appear a Permanent Resident residing in a PAP ward which has up-grading will be more equal than a citizen residing in an Opposition ward.
2) Adviser to the grassroot organisations is a losing PAP candidate and not the winning Opposition candidate.
3) A compliant mainstream media which churns the Ruling Party's propaganda. Worse, there are editorial staff with an unhealthy agenda of painting all opposing and competing views in a bad light. Any Opposition Parties' slip-ups, mistakes, goofs are pounced on with evil delight!
