Chan Chun Sing In No Position To Criticise Chee Soon Juan

Yesterday, Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing wrote a scathing letter to the Huffington Post about Chee Soon Juan claiming that he was a nobody in Politics in Singapore.

Chan had taken issue with the fact that the Huffington post, which is a media not censored and controlled by the Singapore government unlike our mainstream media, had published two of Dr Chee’s letters which were critical of Singapore and he tried to make them understand that they shouldn’t continue publishing Dr Chee’s letters.

In doing so, he highlighted all of Dr Chee’s “failures” including all the instances where he had been ‘fixed’ by the government to discredit him personally and professionally.

In another separate letter to Straits Times, Chan Chun Sing, has gone even further to attack Dr Chee.

He said that Dr Chee was a failure and he rebut Dr Chee’s other articles where he criticised the fact that Singaporeans cannot live on $1000 a month.

Mr Chan insisted that Singaporeans who earn $1000 a month can afford a flat and benefit from many aid schemes including getting subsidies on healthcare, transport, education and utilities.

Chan Chun Sing also attacked Dr Chee saying he had failed to win any elections and kicked out the former leader of his party Mr Chiam See Tong.

It is interesting that Chan Chun Sing attacks Dr Chee for failing to win any elections as he himself also never won any elections.

Chan Chun Sing was parachuted into parliament iin the walkover GRC of Tanjong Pagar on the coattails of Lee Kuan Yew.

Mr Chan never won a single vote but Dr Chee had won many, just not enough to get into parliament. This is despite the mainstream media in Singapore continuously painting him as a madman and a criminal.

For Mr Chan to bring up the “kicking out” of Chiam See Tong from the SDP as a character flaw in Chee Soon Juan, perhaps he should be looking at his own party and fellow MP in Tanjong Pagar.

Back in the 1960s, Lee Kuan Yew also “kicked out” the main charismatic character in the PAP, Lim Chin Siong, by taking over the party. When Lim Chin Siong left the PAP and formed his own party like Chiam See Tong from the SDP, Lee Kuan Yew then him in jail accusing him of being a communist despite declassified British documents indicating that this was not the case at all.
