ALJUNIED GRC – MY RECOMMENDATIONS TO WP

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 December 2014 - 1:57pm

I have read widely from the main media and social media and have come to the conclusion that the Aljunied GRC voters are like children, just about 12 to 14 years in mentality.

You see, children are playful and like to have fun, even risking their future, even defying the warning that they would have to repent for 5 years if they voted for the WP.
