Stop perpetuating falsehoods about the opposition

The recent issue of Freshgrads published the piece Why Blame the PAP? by Mr Shawn Danker who wrote: “That is exactly what the opposition loves to repeat the anti-PAP mantra: ‘vote them out’ instead of offering solutions to the public. They’re just peddling a bunch of easy answers with no solutions.$CUT$

This is an extraordinary statement for Mr Danker to make given that the SDP has published a series of alternative policy papers clearly spelling out solutions to current problems.

These papers have been widely reported online and are available on this website. We list them below:

Ethical Salaries For A Public Service Centred Government (2011)

Caring For All Singaporeans: The SDP National Healthcare Plan (2012)

Housing A Nation: Holistic Policies For Affordable Homes (2013)

Building A People: Sound Policies For A Secure Future (2013)

A Singapore For All Singaporeans: Addressing The Concerns Of The Malay Community (2014)

Educating For Creativity And Equality: An Agenda For Transformation (2014)

A New Economic Vision: Towards Innovation, Equal Opportunity and Compassion (2015)

A Promise To The Residents: The SDP Town Council Management Plan (2015)

In addition, we published Shadow Budgets for 2012 and 2013.

Mr Danker’s statement is a clear misrepresentation of facts. The SDP will be writing to Freshgrads on the matter.
