A timely reminder for you peasants!

"REMEMBER your place in society before you engage in political debate, said Information and the Arts Minister George Yeo yesterday.

Debate cannot degenerate into a free-for-all where no distinction is made between the senior and junior party, or what the Hokkiens describe as "boh tua, boh suay".

"You must make distinctions - what is high, what is low, what is above, what is below - and then within this, we can have a debate, we can have a discussion," he added.

Speaking to reporters at the end of his Moulmein tour on the parameters of debate, an issue sparked off by the Catherine Lim controversy, he made it clear that people should not take on those in authority as "equals"...."


The above Straits Times report dated 20th Feb 1994 is most appropriately titled "Debate yes, but do not take on those in authority as 'equals'"


Recently, I notice that many of you peasants are becoming boh tua boh suay. So, as a good ass-licker and apple-polisher, I feel it is my duty to help my Asses and Apples remind you peasants, of what George Yeo said 10 years ago.

So, please, for your own safety, remember your LOW position before talking to us. You are not our equal. Far from it!

Remember ”what is above? what is below?" and talk to us with the appropriate reverence, respect, adoration and admiration!

"Remember your place in society before you engage in political debates" (I couldn't have put it better than George Yeo), you peasants!!!!

你们这些奴才,先撒泡尿照一照自己,别忘了自己的低贱身份,等到你们学会用谦卑,求饶的口气说话, 才来和我们这些高级人物辩论吧!

My Chinese translation of the essence of what George yeo said, for those of you whose England is F9. LOL!

This kind of arrogant twit should kana some retribution from someone higher than him, where he is made to feel low, so that he knows "his place in society"!

Heheh, he already had his just dessert. "Someone" higher up gave his son cancer. He had to put aisde all his arrogance, and to plead humbly for mercy from that "someone". That must have put him in his right place! Don't get me wrong. I do pity his son, but look at it this way: if the boy was meant to have cancer anyway as fate would be, it is sweet divine justice that this boy was not born to some other family, but to his family, where this father deserved to be humbled and made to pay for his yaya PAPaya attitude to the people he was supposed to serve!

I would like to say a word of fairness. All government and elected parliamentry leaders of this country is "voted" into power not ASCCENDED TO POWER. Please be a ware that people still have the power to change if they choose to do so. But in the case of some rude people who use abusive and inadequate language as a form of venting frustration is not an acceptable form of voicing grievences in this country. As an educated person he or she is responsible for all the words put into paper and aired by media. So be matured about releasing your three cents worth.

>"But in the case of some rude people who use abusive and inadequate language as a form of venting frustration is not an acceptable form of voicing grievences in this country".

Firstly, Catherine Lim had NOT been rude, nor had she used any abusive or inadequate language. Just because PAP disliked her criticism and therefore got its running dog, i.e you, to wrongly accuse her of being rude and abusive, it doesn't make her rude and abusive. Reality cannot be twisted. We all have eyes and ears to read and hear. She was not. Period.

Secondly, "acceptable" or not depends on whether the government is a tyrannical or a democratic one. In a democratic government, it is acceptable for citizens to talk to politicians on equal terms. In an emperor-like dictatorial government, rulers think of themselves as very high up, and expect their lowly slaves to talk to them in a subservient manner, as per what George Yeo said: "You must make distinctions - what is high, what is low, what is above, what is below - and then within this, we can have a debate, we can have a discussion,". You seem very happy to be a lowly slave, ruled by a high-up dictatorial government. Good for you, poor slave!


>"As an educated person he or she is responsible for all the words put into paper and aired by media".

Responsible to who?
To some dictatorial government who expect its citizens to know that the government is high high and the citizens are low low? What a happy slave you are!


>"Please be a ware that people still have the power to change if they choose to do so."

With ball-carriers like you around saying that black is white, and white is black, making up stories and issuing empty threats, people have little power to change even when they choose to do so. But I think that's ok. Ultimately, each person has to answer to his conscience and karma. When your boss is gone, as he will one day, we will kick you in your ass at that time. Or will you be singing a different tune and licking the ass of your new master then, you slimy piece of worm with no backbone whatsover!!
