While the Singapore Government is acting to ensure that help is available to affected groups amidst the economic turbulence and Singaporeans are readying themselves for the storm, only one group of people is happy over the matter. They are the members of the SDP.
In its latest post, SDP featured many international news articles that painted a gloom picture over Singapore's economy. SDP seems to gloat over every mishap that happens to Singapore.
At a time when even the liberal Western states are trying hard to boost investors' confidence in their country's economy, SDP acts in the opposite manner, trying as hard as possible to paint a bad picture on its own country's economy.
When the economy is doing good, SDP espouses "Tak Boleh Tahan", a campaign to provide more for the poor. However when the country's economy is affected by global conditions, SDP silenced its "Tak Boleh Tahan" campaign (perhaps the poor isn't that important to the SDP anymore) and threatens to bring Singapore down with its all-out attack on Singapore's economy.
Seems like SDP will never enjoy singing "One People, One Nation, One Singapore".
