I was driving out of my carpark on the 3rd day of Chinese New Year at about 7pm when my friends pointed out to me “look at these two banners, someone must be so angry with LKY and your MP to slash their face like that”..
I took a glance and saw that true enough, MM Lee banner on the CNY dinner at Commonwealth on 18 Feb 2010 and Baey Yam Keng’s CNY greeting to the constituents, both of their pictures have a slash across their face, same stroke, same slash spot on their face. Must have been from the same ‘culprit’.
As the cars behind were honking impatiently at me, I was not in time to take the 2 pictures of the banner.
The next day when I send Jo-Elle to school at 8+ in the morning, I have my camera ready to take pictures of these 2 banner.
To my great disappointment, these 2 banners were gone overnight. The banner were likely removed by our RC members here. I am truly impressed by their efficiency.
This incident truly reflected the sentiments from the ground, I am sure with the skyrocketing cost of living in Singapore whereby public housing and transportation becomes rather unaffordable, this is citizens way of showing their displeasure.
This incident also show how efficient our Brickworks Zone RC Committee are. Damage control of their beloved master in such short period of time is amazing.
If election is really coming this year, PAP beware, the ground might not be as sweet as you think.
