Yeah i couldn't believe it either when i first saw this video, had to watch over a few times. I even thought that some numbskull edited the soundtrack, till i went to TODAY online to confirm that it was indeed him that got jeered at today

Yup, only the "live" feed displayed the booing. The later broadcasts featured the same scenes minus the jeering. However, if you concentrate hard enough, its still possible to make out some heckling

I think Tony is one of the best of all the ministers la. Better than Mah Bow Tan at least la. MBT is a F-ing pr#%k.



But i just think to have a president with so much link with PAP would not benefit the people lor. Then they can do what they want. Singapore first to them, would mean PAP first, not Singaporeans first......

How come everyone seems to dislike MBT so much? Besides being an ineffective minister (which I'm sure he's not alone in), why all the vitriol? I remember his remark about sending old folks to jb but what else?

a lot of people associate him with high HDB, COE and ERP prices ...

As a foreigner living in Singapore I understand that politics has always been a sensitive topic.
In Europe booing a candidate is relatively normal... It is good that people ask questions about preferred treatment for family members etc. It actually clarifies a lot of things for me.

MBT is PAP's golden goose.



He introduced ERP when he was transport minister. COE prices also increased.

When he was National Dev minister....HDB prices sky rocketed, dispite the ground telling him that Public housing is getting too exp.

He's gone for good i hope....

But i am kind of disappointed how the SG citizens behaved in such events, they are increasingly behaving like the ugly side of the English Soccer supporters..

As for Dr Tony, i think if we want a stable government, he is the right candidate... but this time round it will be interesting to see which Tan wins...

Haha.... true that is he is former PAP, but he has done great contributions to the country. He will also help in the external relationships in future.

But seriously, for those that think that singapore is no good in certain areas, please try to go to other countries, and just go do a comparison, the more you see around the other parts of the world, the more you will appreciate how Singapore is....
