So… what do we have on 12 Sept 2015?
Yup yup, a PAP government, as expected. There has always been no danger of Singapore falling into chaos, no riots across the nation, nothing dire. Our civil service still works, and that is even confirmed by our Ah Gong LKY himself some years ago.
So what happened to all the huge crowds at WP and other opposition rallies? Beats me. It seems like they have popular support, but I have no idea why it fizzled out. Some have indicated that the “new citizens” may have largely swung the votes their way, but I personally have no idea. I would have thought, like with most other people, that the opposition parties might win a few more seats in this election instead of the actual result. By the way, if you want to know what a “freak result” is, this is the epitome of it. Expectations and actual results are opposite. Everyone (that I know) expected more opposition wins. It didn’t happen. Hence, “freak election result”.
