They Cannot Possibly Be Lucky Every Time

Can a party who wins only 60% of the votes win 90% of the seats consistently every election?

It does not make sense to me.

Singapore is Malaysia with a hint of sophistication, splashes of reputation and just plain sub-standard food.

Have you come across a fella named Jerry Mander? He seems to be poking his long nose into every goddamn election in the region....

Damn it, Antares... was just about to say pretty much the same thing.

Oh, well... they do say great minds think alike :p

Geez ... And I thought it was that Gary Meandering bloke who plotted the whole darn thing.

But heads up fellas, the EC's about to open the next kabuki show.

End game - 20 more little Putrajayas.

PPP has done a great job in Singapore and Most Credit Should go to LKY. From the day he stepped out of Msia, he has done remarkably well and today, in many ways, Singapore does put Msia to utmost shame.

Gerry Mandering Is A Permitted Tool in any Country's General Election. Yes, it's to the advantage of the rulling government but then again it can only work to a certain extent. If there's strong voice of change, it would make Gerry Mandering redunden.

Malaysia's election is beyond that Mr. Jerry Mander .
PAP did not hand out cash , built more jambantan , arrest the opposition speaker , don't have to say "Gua tolong Lu , Lu tolong gua ".
PAP did not accuse their opponents as Talibans , Extremist Chinese and best of all...Tak Ada Video Blue dan Tak ada sodo mee.
