A political parody of the PA web page found at http://www.pa.gov.sg/about-us.html and based on article(s): 'How PAP uses taxpayer-funded grassroots for political gain' (G.Giam, 10Oct2009) and ''Adviser over MP' raises many questions' (ST, 22Oct2009).
Perhaps PA board would be better off being a non-partisan one, appointed/ managed by the office of Singapore's unique 'Elected Presidency' rather then one chaired by the PM of Singapore who has obviously begun using it as a political weapon against his opponents. In the first place, statutory boards do owe their allegiance to the President after all. Duh.

'Not end of the world if PAP loses Aljunied GRC': MM Lee

MINISTER Mentor Lee Kuan Yew does not consider it a major setback if the People's Action Party (PAP) loses the Aljunied GRC in the election.
He said it would not be 'the end of the world' and the PAP would fight to get it back.
He repeated that Aljunied voters will have to live with the decision for the next five years and 'repent' if they voted in the Workers' Party (WP) team led by Low Thia Khiang, who left his Hougang stronghold to make a push to capture a Group Representation Constituency.
MM Lee was speaking to reporters on a wide-range of issues about this election, including cost of living and the younger generation, at the Radin Mas branch after a meeting with party activists and PAP candidate Sam Tan.
He also said the PAP will not lose in this election, as the only hot-seat is Aljunied.
'If Aljunied decides to go that way, well Aljunied has five years to live and repent,' said MM Lee.
'We accept the verdict of the people, but they must also accept the consequences of their actions. You must expect the PAP to look after PAP constituencies first.'
