SINGAPORE : Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has urged the opposition Workers' Party to revise their manifesto as it contains dangerous and critical ideas.
He said these destroyed the fundamental principles Singapore had built and thrived on.
The PAP government described the Workers' Party manifesto as containing four "time-bombs", including removing the ethnic quota for HDB housing and the elected presidency.
Mr Lee said the suggestions in the Workers' Party manifesto had undermined the basic principles on which Singapore depends.
He said this was a very serious matter.
Mr Lee said he expected the Workers' Party and its chief Low Thia Khiang to respond properly.
Mr Lee said: "Where do they stand? Either you rethink your position and publish a revised manifesto, version 1.2, there is still time or if they want to stand by that, explain what they mean, justify, defend and we will join issue and we will fight the elections on these issues.
"They should fight the elections on these issues because this is not just a matter of you talking casually at the coffeeshop after drinks. It is a manifesto for the General Election and he is offering himself as an alternative, it has to be scrutinised." - CNA/de
This article amuses me greatly because it is essentially, one party telling the other how to organise their elections. And if you read the original ST article, it was laced with propaganda and explosive[literally] images. Made for a good laugh over breakfast.
Also, there is this idea that if we change anything about Singapore, it will immediately collapse and everyone will starve and die.
