edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for People's Action Party:
  • Add references, especially for specific opposition views, and to specific leaders
  • Reduce weasel words
  • Organise to prevent undue weight (avoid degenerating into a he said, she said) while not sacrificing detail
  • History:
    • Party leadership infighting and the arrest of several party leaders in the 1957-58 under Emergency Regulation, leading to the Lee's firm control of the party ahead of the 1959 election.
    • Divide history into three leadership periods
  • Party's procedure in selecting MP candidates, and ministers
  • Women and minority in the party


Information on party co-founder Lim Chin Siong has been removed[edit]

It is very frustrating to see that my writings that I put into this article on the People's Action Party several years ago have been watered down so that information about the true history of the party and Lim Chin Siong have been removed.

All referrences to the Book 'Comet in our Sky - Lim Chin Siong in History' have been removed from this article. It is obvious that agents of the Singapore government/People's Action Party have targeted this article so as to perpetuate false history of how Lee Kuan Yew and the People's Action Party really came to power.

Wikipedia has allowed itself to become the agents of this infamous band of dictators in Singapore that go by the title of the People's Action Party.

Here is a link to the Singapore Democratic Party (the official opposition party) website featuring a review of the book Comet in our Sky written by British Scholars. http://yoursdp.org/index.php/news/singapore/4468-the-truth-behind-the-detentions

A video showing the basics of verifiability and neutral point of view policies.
  • Mr Russ Browne, please note that Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia and not a battleground for you to pursue your own hidden agenda. So, if your purpose here is not about how to improve it, I'd suggest that you leave before you overstay your welcome. Note also that your comment first posted here 2 years ago on 22 March 2010 hasn't attracted much attention and has been archived, I have no idea why you would want to carry on with flogging a dead horse when it is so bleedingly clear that your viewpoint just won't stand in the face of WP:Verifiability (which is one of our editing guidelines/policies). And seriously, your behaviour is nothing less than what is being described → here ←. If you want us to assume good faith with you, then you have to play your part too... or else there's no middle ground for anyone of us to work on. To which, I shall bid you adieu~! --Dave ♠♣♥♦™№1185©♪♫® 17:51, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
I see nothing wrong with someone pointing out the blatant omission of key information on one of the founders of the PAP. Personal political beliefs aside, won't the inclusion of said information only work towards the improvement of Wikipedia as an encyclopaedia? It seems to me that you, save, are the one pursuing your own agenda, which seems to be just trying to enlarge your Internet ego.

History about PAP ?[edit]

The history about PAP does not look like the current PAP. There are great difference between old PAP and new PAP. From the current Wiki entry, I see some parts require citation. If what the school textbook say about PAP history (old PAP) and current PAP is true, then can the textbook be used as reference? Social Studies? Kimberry352 (talk) 14:44, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I think an academic source completely external to Singapore would be more likely to be objective, if such could be found. Presumably the content of school textbooks is controlled by the Ministry of Education, i.e. ultimately PAP. -- Alarics (talk) 15:11, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

This Wikipedia article, in the news[edit]

Just a notice that according to a report by the Straits Times, MPs may consider legal action against a specific user due to this edit. Depending on whether things boil up or not, this page may need additional attention. --benlisquareTCE 07:19, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Which sort of additional attention are you suggesting here? Just curious as to Wikipedia policy on this. Thanks. Z10987 (talk) 11:22, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
More admin/eyeballs on the page for now at least. The last thing we need here is edit-warring among the more impulsive activists from any faction. Zhanzhao (talk) 11:33, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
It depends on Wikipedia now. Wikipedia can take it from here instead of the MPs in Singapore StandNThrow (talk) 14:49, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
Flameshields on warning my fellow wikipedians.... if the chaos during April-May 2011 (when the last election was held) is any indication - like 2 groups of kids fighting while us regulars had to try to maintain order :P Zhanzhao (talk) 00:26, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
