Worker's Party "Responds" to MND's Town Council Report - Not!

In a surprising turn of events, on 22 November 2014, Worker's Party Pritam Singh issued what The Real Singapore termed a "WP response to Desmond Lee's cromments" on their poor Town Council performance.

wp press statements on AHPETC
TRS' title gives the impression that the WP has been forthcoming in the matter. However, a quick look at the statement will show that the WP has essentially said nothing and has NOT RESPONDED to any of the allegations. In short, the Worker's Party continues to hide and refuses to tell the truth.
A copy of the statement is attached below ...
"We refer to the remarks made by the Minister of State for the Ministry of National Development (MND), Mr Desmond Lee on 21 November 2014. AHPETC have not obfuscated or intentionally delayed in responding to the matters raised by MOS Lee, but have made it known to the public that we are looking into the S&CC arrears data, and will respond to the query on the financial and arrears situation in due course.

We are surprised that MOS Lee has framed the matter as an issue of transparency and accountability. The Auditor-General’s Office (AGO) has been auditing AHPETC’s accounts, and we believe that MND will make the AGO report public in its entirety when the audit ends."

You be the judge if this is a response or merely a smoke-screen ...
