He said that the PAP’s tight control over the mainstream media, and use of the People’s Association for party purposes have led to a climate where Singaporeans believe only the PAP can take the nation into the future.

He added that this also made Singaporeans fear that Singapore will collapse without the PAP at the helm.

Calling for depoliticisation of the media, Dr Chee, who fought and lost in Holland-Bukit Timah GRC, said that Singaporeans will have to fight to deny the government the leeway to make key appointments in print and broadcast media.

He said that the state must not be allowed to revoke licenses of media agencies at any time, should they not toe the line.
networks to rival the PAP’s.

Regarding the PAP’s use of the People’s Association as a political tool, Dr Chee said that opposition parties such as the SDP must look to grow their own grassroots networks.

He indicated that the SDP will reach out to civil society groups and other opposition parties such as the Workers’ Party to seek “unity of purpose”.

“If we don’t get smart we will be chasing our tails election in, election out.”

Dr Chee also urged more “neutral” political commentators to step forward to fight for democracy.

Mentioning renowned figures like Catherine Lim, he said that its time such political commentators stop distancing themselves from the cause.

    Opposition parties must put aside their differences, pride and ego to build a strong united people’s front otherwise S’pore will continue to have one party rule.

    I fall, I rise, I’ve made mistakes. I live, I learn and I’ve been hurt. I’m alive, I’m human and I’m not PERFECT. But I’m THANKFUL ! Dr Chee, these are what YOU ARE MADE OF and you have my UTMOST RESPECT. Dr. Chee, we all know what the mainstream media is. There is nothing that can be done as long as the PAP is in power. The people in the mainstream media have to toe the line and listen to their master’s voice or no pay cheque at the end of the month.Dr. Chee, please take it one step at a time. Your top PRIORITY right now is to get to Parliament. Make use of SOCIAL MEDIA and your newsletter to send your message to those IDIOTIC SINGAPOREANS that you are not to form the next Govt but simply to deny the SPINELESS miw the 2/3 majority in Parliament. You are a WELL READ, ARTICULATE , ELOQUENT INTELLECTUAL. Please use your COMMUNICATION SKILLS and HUMAN TOUCH to fellow Singaporeans and Opposition alike ( WP ) to convince them to DENY the PAP 2/3 majority. When you are in Parliament you are CAPABLE to OUTWIT the SCUMBAGS and TEAR THEM TO SHREADS. Many Singaporeans hold you in HIGH ESTEEM and the day WILL come when you get into Parliament. Remember quite a number of the miw are riding into the sunset. Soon it will be thy kingdom come for them when they have to pay for their SINS. In the meantime, stay STRONG and HEALTHY , you have a 5 year journey ahead of you. A journey of a 1000 miles begin with the first step and a rough journey USUALLY ENDS IN A BEAUTIFUL DESTINATION. Talk to WP and sell the idea of forming a FORMIDABLE OPPOSITION to fight the next round. UNITY IS STRENGTH ! Dr. I dearly wish to see you SUCEED. You DESERVE IT. MAY GOD BLESS AND PROVIDE YOU WITH HIS ALMIGHTY GUIDANCE TO LEAD YOU TO PARLIAMENT !
