From Cake Box to Ballot Box, Everything is Fine?
Yes. All are fine.According to Education Minister Heng Swee Kiat the
cake box is a ‘total dedication to country’
and we need toemulate it
. As for the ballot box, ‘the life of the ballot box ceases when the seal is broken’ based
on the reply of Social and Family Development Minister Chan ChunSing in Parliament. #Everything is fine before the box is open whether it is a box of 90
birthday cake or a ballot box of voting papers.
According to Chan, ‘the life
of a box starts once the box
The life of the box ends when it is open.
So, the PAP’s philosophy is not to open the box. Onceyou open the PAP’s box either by accident or
by voting,the PAP will have to end its life.When we look at the mainstream reports of Lee Kuan
birthday, the tribute in the Parliament and aspecial conference under Lee Kuan Yew etc. is thissituation before or after the box is open? Are we stillthinking within the box? And are we afraid to open upthe box to prepare a post-LKY era? No wonder Lee Hsien Loong dared not open the box, heentrusted the duty to Chan to reply on his behalf inParliament. Chan is not a minister without portfolio in
the Prime Minister’s Office. And yet he has the honour
to reply on behalf of the Prime Minister. No wonder
