It Is The Song Of Angry Men
Revelations about the abuses at the National Kidney Foundation include medication for kidney patients which were routinely sold for a tidy profit. Their "subsidy" turned out to the difference between what was billed and what was charged in the open market. The needy patients were denied the bulk discount prices enjoyed by NKF. Sounds familiar?
While investigating the problem, her team also noticed some Workers' Party (WP) posters in Aljunied GRC did not have Elections Department stickers or had the wrong stickers. Ms Tan said they had lodged a police report and filed a complaint with the Elections Department. Complaining to the Elections Department we understand, but must the police be involved? Maybe she's following the example of Lui Tuck Yew, "so that this episode would be placed on record". Seems like she 's more determined to fix the opposition rather than hunt down the culprits who messed with her posters. For her sake, her supporters had better not be playing mischief with the stickers. That would be embarrassing.
