One lie in parliament changed everything!

When an elected member goes to Parliament to tell a lie, could she be trusted again?

☝️The truth is at stake!

Parliament is the highest legislature in a country. It is here where laws are proposed and debated. Once it’s passed into law, everyone will have to abide by the law. The government enforce the laws and the courts interpret the laws passed by parliament. That’s our basic understanding.

Back to the question – If an elected member lied in parliament, she has lost all credibility. The liar cannot be trusted any more. Why then take her evidence seriously when she claimed that she was asked to take the lie “to her grave?”

A complaint was made against the lying member and she was forced to resign half way through the proceedings. Why not round it up and move on to other matters of national importance? Why devote so much resources and air time over a disgraced member when our survival is at stake?

The latest Coronavirus mutation ie Omicron is causing so much havoc all over the world putting a brake on our eager efforts to open up our borders and economy yet we are still stuck on this little insignificant case that doesn’t seem to resonate well with the misery of the masses.

Frankly, most of us are more concerned about our livelihood and future rather than this circus 🤡going on and never ending even after the disgraced member has resigned. Many are wondering where all this is leading to? Link

☝️The winner takes all

Under the glaring scrutiny of the camera, the verdict is clear. Camera doesn’t lie. Perhaps the only winner out of all these is the Leader of the Opposition. May God bless Singapore.

I find it so irritating that so much parliament and MPs time are wasted on these, and our economies future suffered as a result Are they not there to setup near term future plans for Singaporean, especially in view of the economy downturn? Their pockets are guaranteed, but many others are constantly in fear of changes – what kind of discussion had they done to anticipate the different future directions of these Covid-19 saga can take and thus preplanned for it? I have only followed the entire saga for only a maximum total of 1 hour from the time it started till now. The government should have put these through backyard investigation and not wasting everyone’s time instead. If it is really so insistent that lies be exposed then set it up as a court case and only involved the relevant parties. Why involved every MPs instead?

    This is the start of the fall of Singapore – once everyone start becoming political, economies get sideswiped. The whole world now is gradually going into a depression, inflation rising, supply chain problems, future health concerns about new variants etc. Where is the plan and discussion?
