Campaigns & Rallies

1 May 2011 – Labour Day…

Benghazi, Libya (CNN) – Artillery units loyal to Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi pounded rebel positions in Benghazi and Misrata on Sunday after his government announced that one of his sons and three grandchildren had died in a NATO airstrike... and your guess with the consequences, not good ūüė¶

With the SIN General Elections due on 7 May, campaigns & rallies have been taking front page and headlines in the news here. Being neither politically nor religiously inclined but it is time to watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17qhGIwyGj0 as objectively as possible and there are some valid points made. Can thus understand why people are reacting the way they are.

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely – Lord Acton

Will not be fair to make comments as am away from SIN much of the time and unable to experience fully what it is like living here with the political parties or their candidates. Amazing that there are 7 political parties on this tiny red dot! The parties in alphabetical order:

National Solidarity Party

People’s Action Party

Reform Party

Singapore Democratic Alliance

Singapore Democratic Party

Singapore People’s Party

Workers Party
