    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?

    Absolutely agree.

    A man reaps what he sows
    Heavens has eyes
    A man gets what he deserves

    Mr Lau now knows his mistakes and sees the evils of the pap.

    It is refreshing to hear real life sharing like what Mr Lau did.

    Hopefully PAP changes for the better

    Not too late to join SDP.

    Disclaimer: He will not get perks like he used to when he was an active grassroots member. But if he can retrieve just ONE ball to join SDP, rest assured SDP will help him find his other ball.

    he should have been financially independent by 60, 15 years before he reached 75. 15 years of joblessness after 60 only proved that he squandered his chances for early retirement without setting aside and investing wisely. this has nothing to do with the pap. he should thank the pap for giving him chances early in his life but blame himself for being stupid about financial planning and carrying it through.

    Too late. Because he is very sick. But maybe SDP can record his testimony and share it at the right time.

    In fact this shd be the Opposition strategy. To record how Singaporeans suffer under the pap, to record what injustices were meted out by pap and then regularly show them

    Like i said he had a good life. But after 10years of sickness, his savings were bankrupted. Now he lives like a pauper. He and his sickness have pulled his family down too.

    He curses the pap now

    His plight has nothing to do with the PAP. It's because he did not plan for the future by making hay while the sun was shining. You cannot blame the PAP for that.

    It's good the know that a PAP supporter gets no special privileges once they have done their time. It shows that the PAP is very fair in its dealings with the electorate. I would be horrified if he was treated better than an opposition supporter just because of his past involvement in grassroots activities.

    It has every thing to do with pap. PAP's bad policies bankrupted sick singaporeans. PAP lied that
    1. no singaporean will be denied medical care.
    2. medical care is affordable
    3. Medishield Life will pay for youe medical costs.

    Mr Lau knows that all pap's claims are lies.

    Sam, you must never lie to a dying man. Be very careful to speak the truth to a dying man

    Yes, he wishes he is dead.

    This is a sad end to a once pap staunch supporter. He will not be the last supporter to curse the pap

    Read my post carefully.

    A pap supporter who the pap finds not useful will not get pap's attention and privileges

    I have challenged you many times to state what I said is not true.

    You backed off your claims but continue to lie
