Charges against James Gomez dropped; passport returned

CHARGES against James Gomez have been dropped, his passport returned, but not without a stern warning from the police, who had him arrested at the airport last May 7 and detained for questioning for three consecutive days (May 7, 9 and 10) for 16 hours.

  1. Now that the James Gomez “affair” has quietened down, I suggest we learn from this whole incident to be a lot wiser. Opposition candidates, if they intend to be taken seriously, should raise up important issues like CPF withdrawals at 55 and its rationale for instance, instead of making fools of themselves on polling day – for this gives the public the impression that they’re just putting on stupendous stunts. Be serious and have an intelligent agenda, and dont expect sympathy votes. If by some fluke Aljunied GRC falls to the Workers’ Party in 2011, then I expect a much better performance from the Workers’ Party – and not an inferior performance. What if a bunch of idiots or lunatics end up in parliament – Singapore would appear to be the laughing stock in the world, isn’t it?
