During the recent budget debate, the Workers’ Party was quick to exercise their parliamentary rights to question the government on their proposed and past spending. It is ironic that just last month, in the same house, the Workers’ Party of Singapore had blatantly refused to answer questions put forth by the People’s Action Party on how Workers’ Party run Ajunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) had spent taxpayers money.
In justifying his question on needing to know how money was being spent on the new SAF Volunteer Corps (SAFVC), Low Thia Khiang argued on the concept of the need for equity in treatment. Perhaps Low Thia Khiang can reflect on his own question and ask himself why the issue of equity in treatment applies to the PAP (answering his question) and to the issue of how Volunteers are treated, but not the more fundamental issue like the need for WP to answer to Parliament?
Is this how a first world parliament operates?
The Workers’ Party is obviously out of control in their belief that they are above the law. The AHPETC issue clearly reveals the true character and values of Low Thia Khiang, Slyvia Lim and Pritam Singh. It is time Singaporeans showed the Workers’ Party that they are not above the law.
