Define Political Party

I got an interesting story for you. The WP is considered a political party. PAP is not. East Coast Park is supposedly a public place. But West Coast Park isn't.

I'm not wrong. I have proof.

Taken from the MHA website regarding "Oral Answer to Parliamentary Question on the reasons for the rejection of a police permit to hold the Workers’ Party 50th Anniversary Cycling Event on 9 September 2007 at the East Coast Park".

We have Ho Peng Kee spewing:

Mr Speaker Sir, the reason why political parties are not allowed to organise outdoor activities has been explained in Parliament before.

Police does not allow political parties to organise outdoor gatherings because such activities have the potential for public disorder and mischief, and may disrupt community life. Police's requirement is that such party activities be held indoors or within stadiums, so that any law and order problems would be contained. This policy applies to all political parties.

The Workers’ Party had applied to the Police to organise a mass cycling event to celebrate the party’s 50th anniversary at the East Coast Park. The East Coast Park is a recreational park for Singaporeans and their families. It is not meant to be used by a political party to promote its cause. Apart from displacing the usual recreational users of East Coast Park, it is an open area where there is greater potential for a breach of the peace, public disorder and unruly behaviour. As I have explained, Police takes a more cautious approach towards outdoor activities organized by political parties. In line with this approach, Police rejected Workers’ Party’s application.

The Workers’ Party may wish to consider organising its celebrations at an indoor venue or in a sports stadium.

Did you happen to catch the front page of LHL on his bicycle pegged with 2 national flags with the headline: "PAP Carnival at West Coast Park"? Sylvia, I think it's time you raised this up in the next parliament sitting. Unless somewhere along the way, ST's editors decided printing "PAP" or "Gahmen" can be interchangeable since they are one and the same.

We learn new things everyday.

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others - Squealer

Now all you PAPis sing along while riding pillion on your modded out white washed BMXes:

PAPi PAPi, PAP chulo!
PAPi, PAPi, PAPi veng a mi!

But Nicole Scherzinger went one better on Daddy Yankee's track with:

You are the king of my heart
And that was just
So don't you ever go far
PAP-i Lover
There is no other like you
No other lover than you
So doesn't mean what you do
PAP-i Lover

Buena Suerte.

Postscript: Much thanks to The Online Citizen and The Singapore Daily for picking this up from me.

This Park kai Ho is a useless asso, nearly lost his seat. He never learned his lesson. However as usual they PAP is king in S'pore so can do what they want. PAP's motto is my right is my right n your right is also my right. What they can do u cannot do. What the fish PAP.

Why not Sylvia organise another event again and apply for a permit. See what their reply is. Or are they going to say that no reason need be given for their decisions and correspondence will not be entertained. The WP should capitalise on this. That's what we elected them for.

I am the kind of guy who passions to seek revolutionary stuff. Presently I am building my personal photovoltaic panels. I am managing it all alone without the aid of my staff. I'm utilizing the net as the only path to acheive this. I stumbled upon a very brilliant website which explains how to contruct photovoltaic panels and so on. The place explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure bout how precise the information given there is. If some guys over here who have experience with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I would really appreciate it, because I really lav solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. You guys are the best.
