Thank you for publishing my letter. I am flattered by the attention!
I am also heartened that I am not the only one who still supports the SDP despite the onslaught of the PAP and its propaganda machine, The Straits Times. Tan Tai Wei’s letter ‘Let Chee have his say in papers’ is encouraging and it opens the door for a strong rebuttal to that Odiarthavar character.
The Straits Times now faces a Catch-22 dilemma. If they don’t let you reply, it becomes obvious again that they are just the PAP’s newsletter. If they let you reply, SDP can have the chance to set the record straight. SDP should press on and not give its detractors rest.
