Is this the signs of the things to come?



Is the signs of things to come?

But if Singaporeans really do want more oppositions elected, then why is there still only 2 of them in the parliament?

Singaporeans cannot wish for more opposition MPs but yet not vote them during the elections.

you have to reconcile the fact that people do want jobs, that voting in a certain politician isn't about just the "more voices" thing.

so what WP is doing is indeed very good in the long run. because they are indeed showing that there can be a credible opposition.

1. They want opposition, just not in their area.

2. PAP voters don't know how to use computer.

3. No one use Yahoo. Ahem.

4. PAP fans got better things to do than do stupid online polls.

Dear Anonymous,

Whence the many votes then, if no one uses Yahoo?

Then again, even if no one uses Yahoo, that doesn't mean no one pops by Yahoo, no?

More internet users tend to have a more pro-Alternative Voice stance compared to non-internet users.

However the majority of voters are still your typical ah chek, makcik or uncle/auntie who support the PAP and dont do online polls.

Dear anon 1:40 AM, May 17, 2006,

Didn't I say this is a sign for the things to come?

It is mostly the younger crowd who use internet.

I am sure in 5 yrs time, internet will play an even more impt role in these young Singaporeans' lives, while the older folks fade from the scene.

That is when an true internet election campaign will be fought.

u can see, u can see from the postings, most are anonymous. What does this mean? There is certain amount of fear. Why people voted for the existing, I believe are the following:

1. Fear
2. Die heart
3. Self interest

Singaporeans are a realistic bunch, most dont care if this affect the community or if it is going to be a national issue. They only care if it affects them directly.

Hi anon 10:19 AM, May 17, 2006,

But alot of the issues do affect us directly.

For eg, the CPF min sum scheme is gg to affect all Singaporeans directly,
I also believe that this scheme is not really beneficial to Sporeans...

If ppl are really afraid to speak out then please dun complain when the govt introduce this type of schemes in the future.

Bcos silence always means consent in Spore.
