Sources in the Singapore government indicated that SM Goh will not be told of Hougang’s loss to the Worker’s Party. SM Goh put his personal reputation on the line to win back the ward. “As Singaporean ministers are acutely sensitive to their reputations, we decided it best if SM Goh be told that Hougang was actually won by the PAP,” our source said. SM Goh appeared pleased after being told of the PAP’s win, and due to the strong support of the PAP party in Singapore and Singapore’s other finest newspapers keeping the Hougang issue out of the press, it is hoped that SM Goh not find out about the situation.
