  • WP is using a stone to hit their own head.
    One shinning trait of PAP is “implementing” or “enforcing”. Hence it’s the least of all worries!
    Instead getting PAP to promise to do what the people want is harder.
    But now that the promises are made, you can be hell sure PAP delivers.
  • Oh wait, WP issuing statement to claim the credits that belong to ME????
    I have these ideas before WP did, so it’s me who is the rooster who is croaking that’s why the sun is rising!
  • “…The Workers’ Party has long advocated (these changes)…..”
    “…is line with the Workers’ Party’s call.”
    “…which is something that has been advocated by the Workers’ Party in Parliament.”
    “…This is an area I (Yee Jenn Jong) had championed for change even before I had entered politics.”
    “…This is something the Workers’ Party had been calling for as well.”
    “…Some (of the changes) were what my colleagues and I (Gerald Giam) in the Workers’ Party had been calling for in recent years.”
    “…There were several other ideas that my other colleagues Lee Li Lian and Muhamad Faisal Manap had been calling for,…. which were taken up by the PM last night.”

    ….. WP has (covetously) claimed credit for the changes announced at the NDR….

    But we are beginning to hear criticisms of these proposals, such as Medishield being made compulsory, increase of insurance premium and Medisave limits, that the banding of PSLE results does not solve the root concerns, that the 40 places will be taken up by rich people who can afford to ‘shift’ houses, etc.

    So will WP also also take ownership of these criticism as well?

    Or, are the Blue Ones just happy to bask in the glory and praises, but pass the buck (and pretend to fall asleep as co-driver) when it comes to implementation issues?  ~~ Byan

  • Someone also made the point that when it comes to claiming credit, the Blue reaction is super fast. 
    But when it makes mistakes, its often a stony silence and collective party-wide paralysis.
    What a contrast!
  • Delusional?
    WP have not settled the cleaning saga and now one of the members continued to claim credit for suggesting those recommendations?
    Children have imaginary friends, WP has imaginary enemies!
  • Specially for my dear WP once more as it seems you have forgotten this again!

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

    whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;

    who strives valiantly;

    who errs,

    who comes short again and again,

    because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

    but who does actually strive to do the deeds;

    who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

    who spends himself in a worthy cause;

    who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

    and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

    so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. ”
    Theodore Roosevelt, excerpt from a speech “Citizen in a Republic” delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
