"Teo Chee Hean and his nonsense" - onesingaporean Blog
"By the opposition’s own admission, if you ask them, are you ready to form a government… they say, no, no, we’re not ready.” - DPM Teo Chee Hean, Straits Times, 8 April 2011.
"Mr Teo should remember that it is his own PAP which has been telling Singaporeans this past few weeks that its new candidates are also not ready – not even ready to be MPs.....
That is why they have to be “understudies”. Like Tin Pei Ling and even army general BG Tan Chuan Jin......
Mr Teo :
"What Singaporeans will actually be paying a high premium for are “understudies” who aren’t ready to be MPs and to pay S$15,000 a month for each of these 20-plus “understudies”."So what they’re actually asking you to do is to pay a very high premium for a so-called insurance, which.. they can’t deliver."
Do the maths.
$15,000 a month per “understudy”, is equal to S$900,000 for each of them for a five-year term.
Multiply that by say 24 new PAP “understudies” and you and I will be paying a premium of : S$21,600,000 !!! "
