Singapore heartland, stupidity
No, I am not weighing in on the PAP town councils vs WP town council AIM saga. Enough has been written about the incident by prominent online figures like Yawning Bread, Cherian George, Tan Kin Lian and Tan Cheng Bock. I am not so chim.
Compare these two pictures below:

Over the weekend, the WP MPs performed on stage for their first ever variety show, Bricks in Blue to raise funds for new, bigger party headquarters.
All the Facebook and social media shares I saw online were positive, praising the WP MPs for their fun spirit and gameness to entertain.
In contrast, whenever any PAP MP try to do something fun or engage in some performances, the online comments are almost 90% nasty and poking of them. Some even become “classics jokes” like Minister Lim Swee Say dressed as Zorro. Anyone still remember the P65? This is the first ever PAP “hip hop band” of which the now notorious Michael Palmer was formerly a dance member.
Even before social media like Facebook was popular, Singaporeans had a field day poking fun of the P65 dance video.
Why WP dance and perform on stage = cool, stylo-milo and humble; but PAP dance and perform on stage = wayang, childish and nothing betting to do?
Fellow Singaporeans! Why you all so unfair one?
