Photos showing three laminated signs begging the ruling party for mercy at what appears to be a food stall has been trending online.
While it is unclear where the stall that featured these signs is exactly located,
it is presumed that the stall is in Tampines since the individual begging the People’s Action Party addresses the notices to PAP Tampines.
A close look at the photos seem to suggest that the signs are featured at what looks to be a fruits and vegetables stall.

The first sign reads, “PAP TAMPINES – I Can’t Make a Living in Your Constituency. You Make My Life Full Of Hardship.
You Make My Life Very Miserable And Full Of Nightmares,”


while the second sign appeals, “PAP TAMPINES!!! Stop Bullying Me.”

The third sign begs, “PAP TAMPINES – I Beg You!!! I Had Enough Torture From Your Officers. You Make My Life Full Of Hardship.
I Just Want To Get Out From Your Constituency. Please Help Me. I Beg You!!!!”


The photos of the signs began trending on social media on the back of the S&CC hike in 15 PAP town councils that went into effect last Friday (1 June).
Tampines is one of the 15 town councils affected.

This is the second S&CC increase in two years. Last year, rates for market and cooked food stalls increased between S$2.70 to S$23.00 per month.
The latest S&CC hike sees an additional S$2.50 to S$17.50 being imposed on stallholders each month from now onwards.

It is indeed RUBBISH that the S&CC are increased. Based on what?

Every PAP GRC has about $100m sinking funds. For what F**k? For losing money in Lehman Bros.... and now increase again and make us all suck thumb and PAY AND PAY.

(btw did TH lose another sum in Viet investment, gg in at abt $2.50 and selling at about $0.50???).... whatever. Whatever Hole Jinx touches, run like my S is on fire!

I hope PAP falls like BN! Now I'm not so wishing to see them lose 2/3 majority but see them KICKED OUT!

Most Sporean still sleeping. Claiming that if LKY is alive spore will be better managed. But in the first place LKY is the one who appoint his daugther in law to manage Temasick and even claiming she is the best qualified person to do that.

LKY is the guy who always touted meritocracy..... LKY version of meritocracy is subjected to terms and conditions also.

Dear residents and friends of Tampines GRC,

We noticed this series of old photos being re-circulated from a stall in Tampines GRC.

This is in fact old news - it happened in 2011 because of an unhappy store owner who was penalized for contravening Town Council by-laws and has since left.

The store has since changed hands twice.

The actual photos can also be found at the following blog by Mr Brown in his 3rd May 2011 blog post.
