Low Thia Khiang has no professional courtesy when it conducts itself . Low Thia Khiang’ Peng Lai Peng Ki, roti-prata act.

BCC: The World

We all know that kind of people.

The kind of colleague who BCCs your boss when he’s pointing out your flaws.

Or the kind that forwards your confidential emails to others without your permission.

We also know people who don’t understand what it means by “off the record”.

Or the counter-party who secretly records a “without-prejudice” negotiation.

Yes, we all know that kind of people.

And so it is in politics. After the Hougang By-Election, NUSS organized a closed-door dialogue session between the PAP’s Baey Yam Keng and the WP’s Low Thia Khiang.

Before the session started, the organizers reminded the audience that the dialogue was closed-door and that there was to be absolutely no reporting.

But as things usually are, within 3 hours of the session ending, postings on online forums had reported on the session.

The Worker’s Party itself later also saw fit to put up photos and the transcript of Mr Low’s speech at the event on Facebook and Twitter.

And what was Mr Low’s response to all this? “For me, I am always open door”.

It seems that Mr Low Thia Khiang and the Worker’s Party have completely missed the point.

This isn’t about the PAP having anything to hide. There wasn’t even a morsel of deliciously scandalous information being revealed at that dialogue session.

  • This is about the WP having no professional courtesy when it conducts itself.
  • This is about Low Thia Khiang being a political cheapskate – the very kind of person who will do anything and everything to gain an unethical advantage over others.

A closed-door session that wasn’t

ORGANISERS of a post- Hougang election dialogue this week were adamant that the session, featuring Workers’ Party chief Low Thia Khiang and People’s Action Party MP Baey Yam Keng, was not for reporting.

Before the session started, the National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) reminded the audience that the dialogue was closed-door and that there was to be absolutely no reporting.

The move to keep things under wraps was a curious one, especially at a time of growing interest in Singapore politics.

At any rate, the embargo proved futile. This dialogue on the Hougang by-election evidently had its own ‘secret squirrels’.

Within three hours of the session ending late on Thursday night, postings on online forums had reported on the session.

The Workers’ Party itself later also saw fit to put up photos and the transcript of Mr Low’s speech at the event on Facebook and Twitter – which some netizens quickly picked up as well.

Mr Low himself was overheard saying after the closed-door forum: ‘For me, I am always open door.’

WP won’t oppose for sake of opposing: Low

Excerpt : 

WORKERS’ Party (WP) secretary-general Low Thia Khiang believes his party’s strong showing in the election indicates that Singaporeans endorse his party’s approach to politics.

Mr Low said WP does not “oppose for the sake of opposing”, nor does it “believe in grandstanding…trying to show people that they are confrontational” simply because they are an opposition party.

This is because he feels that Singapore is “a mature democracy” and “as society becomes civilised, political engagement has to be (done) in a civilised manner”.

He added: “The WP believes in upholding the rule of law in Singapore, so we will not want to go against the law.

“This has been our approach and this has been declared publicly, in terms of the political engagement and the way we will approach politics.”

Mr Low is heartened that Singaporeans “look up to the WP as a rational, responsible and credible (opposition) party”.

by Fabrications About The PAP and some of the comments to share as follow :

  • Hey! this is Workers’ Party we talking about man!! They have the immunity to everything and anything, remember? Get used to it PAP & its supporters. Dare to call WP “no professional courtesy”? mmm zai si ah! Later all the tens of thousands of online WP fans come after you den u know !!
  • It doesn’t matter what the WP does (or does not do), their ONLY value to the people is “to check the govt” in parliament — despite their inability to check themselves or anyone .. SAD.
  • but public sentiments are such “they(WP) can do no wrong and it’s all PAP smearing their god-human idols”  Sad…
  •  Actually when the opposition say they want to be in parliament to check government, think about it, what qualifications do they have to crown themselves as “government inspector”?
    They are just some alternate political parties which have been riding on the sentiments of some Singaporeans and yes they got more votes over the years but that still does not mean they are doing the right things for the country.
    Are Singaporeans so sure about the objectives of the alternate political parties like WP?
    Have Singaporeans been reading deeper into what these alterate political parties are doing?
    Are we sure they are all for the interest of Singaporeans?
    Bad salesmen can generate lots of sales but it does not mean they are selling the right products to their customers, they have met their own objectives, not their customers.
    Worst, are these alternate political parties capable of providing after-sales service?
  • ‎”Before the session started, the organizers reminded the audience that the dialogue was closed-door and that there was to be absolutely no reporting.”
    At this point, if Mr Low had a problem with the ‘absolutely no reporting’ part, he should state his objection or leave.
    Instead he chose to stay, giving the impression that he would abide by the ‘no reporting’ rule.
    When he later reneged on the no reporting rule, it was an ungentlemanly and ‘buay swee’ thing to do.
    What makes it worse is his response later “For me, I am always open door”. This is KONG CHIAO WEH!
