DPM Teo fires not-so-sly shots at Sylvia Lim’s handling of accounts
We well and truly are into “election season”.
Especially when an innocent Instagram picture of a person tucking into orh luak (oyster omelette) can tick Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister off.
According to Channel NewsAsia, DPM Teo took offence at Workers’ Party (WP) Chairwoman Sylvia Lim’s picture of herself tucking into some orh luak from Fengshan SMC’s famed Fengshan Market and Food Centre — more popularly known as “Bedok 85”.
In response to that offensive picture, DPM Teo had this to say:
Now we see the chairman of the town council saying that Fengshan SMC looks quite delicious. What’s going to happen? You’re going to swallow up Fengshan? For what purpose? To serve the residents of Fengshan? Or is Fengshan delicious because you want to add it to the pot? And help the town council with the deficit?
DPM Teo Chee Hean
DPM Teo is, of course, referring to the AHPETC saga that plagued WP for much of early 2015.
We’ll be the first to admit that the orh luak at Bedok 85 is pretty good, but turning some innocent oysters into political leverage has got to be a first.
More pot shots will be fired as we lead up to the elections, but please, let’s just leave our food out of this.
