Last night I had the privilege to meet Mr Lau, a staunch PAP supporter. Mr Lau is the mid 70s. He had primary school education but was determined and knew that by joining the pap, he wld be able to get many privileges. He lives at AMK Ave 10 and had been a staunch supporter of the pap. When he was young and active, he participated in many pap activities and was accorded many privileges and given many appreciation certificates by the pap. He was influential and had many friends. Because of his involvement with pap, he got a good salary despite his lack of education. Life was good. His son joined as an SOF regular in the SAF. He praised the pap. Yesterday, when he met me, he was a man full of sorrows. He had been sick for abt 10years and was not able to be active in pap grassroots. Initially his grassroots friends still kept in touch with him. But as his sickness got worse, they deserted him. PAP and his grassroots friends are no more with him. Now his comfort is his family members He has been jobless for more than 15years. His son is very sick and is unable to hold a job. He resorted to renting out a room in his AMK flat to get monthly income. Life is tough for him now. Unlike the days when he was an active pap supporter, he now has to count every cent. He told me he regrets serving the pap blindly and neglected his friends. He is a frustrated man and have no way out. He knows now that PAP used him and spoke to him nicely when they wanted him to serve, to reach out and to speak up for the pap. He knows now that the pap used him when he was young and healthy. He now knows that pap dumps him when he is not useful to the pap. He wished he had lived his life differently. I appreciate Mr Lau for his truthfulness and his sharing. How many more Singaporeans will face a future like Mr Lau is facing now? How many PAP supporters will regret serving pap like Mr Lau?
