20160502 PAP’s Murali already talking cock before becoming MP

Bukit Batok residents should be wary of electing another PAP MP and would do well to scrutinise Murali’s speeches.

In one of his responses to the SDP, MP wannabe Murali naively asked “Why should I be muzzled” and tried to hoodwink voters into thinking he could be his own man, his Party Whip non existent.

Murali is not only arrogant to anyhow assume he is above the PAP but also clearly talking cock. Just go ask any PAP MP if they were ever their own man in Parliament. Go against the Party Whip and prepare to leave PAP like Inderjit Singh, a gentleman.

Murali was reported to have a strong connection with PA grassroots in Bukit Batok. But when the campaigning kicked off, Murali had to be introduced by a more familiar face – PM Lee.

Damn! Everywhere Murali went, PM Lee had to play introducer and nobody seemed to recognise him at all.

If you had seen the video, Murali was clearly not his own man – he had to take the cue from Lee Hsien Loong to start waving his hand at strangers above. In fact, Murali was not even a man: he appeared to be Lee Hsien Loong’s shadow.

So what’s the point of being Branch Secretary and supposedly having served residents for 15 years when, in reality, hardly anyone knows who he is?

Besides talking cock about being his own man, Murali went a mile further and insisted that being a full-time MP “does not necessarily make a better MP”. According to Murali, head of commercial litigation at Rajah and Tann, “This is a team effort, not just volunteers, not just town council staff, but also community partners”.

So, when it comes to the $192,500 MP allowance, will Murali be sharing his windfall with his team since it’s all about team effort?

Perhaps the former SPF Assistant Superintendent should tell PM Lee that his job shouldn’t be full time since he has a team of ministers to help him. PM Lee should go play golf and maybe accompany Ho Ching on shopping trips.

Murali has a character flaw: he wants to keep 192,500 tax dollars for himself while putting in minimal time into his “cause”. It appears Murali has no intention of serving his supporters once power is in his hands.

Every person has 24 hours. Take away 9 hours at work and 8 hours for sleep, Murali would be left with 7 hours. An hour for each of his 4 children and a wife leaves him with 2 miserable hours to serve residents. What about attendance at various events, funerals, market visits, coffee shop visits, etc. How is Murali supposed to serve his constituents with such limited time? Outsource to his partisan state-funded grassroots? Is this the type of MP Bukit Batok residents want?

Compare Murali with Dr Chee who, if elected, intends to be a full-time MP. With his MP allowance, Dr Chee could hire a full-time assistant to help him instead of abusing state resources. Residents with issues need not wait for hours on a particular day of the week to seek Chee’s help. Unlike Murali and most PAP MPs, Chee would be providing a real service to residents.

Murali continued talking more cock with his 533-word response to Chee’s pledge to become a full-time MP. Murali has employed one of PAP’s favourite tactics: confusing voters. Bukit Batok residents would do well to apply some common sense and remember this: Murali, like everyone else, has 24 hours. Murali would be sacrificing residents’ interests if he is not a full-time MP. Simple Math and don’t allow Murali to confuse you.

Questions: If elected, will Murali
– dare to question the PAP on where our reserves are invested?
– press for the government to be accountable to the people?
– highlight issues on transparency with regard to the hundreds of millions in reserves paid to directors of GLCs?
– disclose the number of grassroots leaders/town council officers with business dealings with government agencies?
etc.

Tough questions which not a single PAP MP is man enough to ask. Will Murali still be the man without muzzle, asking tough questions once he becomes MP? It appears unlikely with him talking cock even as an MP aspirant.
