Playing Png Pong in Hougang

I have to say I love the Png Pong going on in Hougang. Leaked minutes sent by someone called Secret Squirrel! Accusations and counter-accusations. Misspoken words over a ballot or voting slip. One would have thought some really bad, traitorous deed against the nation has been uncovered. Sigh. But this is not a movie but whether someone lied about wanting or not wanting to be NCMP. Much ado about nothing? Or should some weight should be put on Teo Chee Hean’s claim that Png has no integrity. I pity Png. The man probably tried to fudge his way out of the question of why the WP didn’t put him up as NCMP. But you know something? Low Thia Kiang seems to making a clean breast of it. The minutes were real. The NCMP post decided by vote – regardless of personal inclination. He’s trying to hold the line; just as he did with his adamant silence on Yaw Shin Leong’s peccadilloes. Laudable. But it only indicates some profound disaffection within the WP ranks. The next instalment of the movie when the Png Pong is over should be a purge.
