Speaker of Parliament, PAP MP Michael Palmer resigns due to extra-marital affair

Latest news on Singapore’s next sex-scandal.

Speaker of Parliament, PAP MP Michael Palmer who is also a lawyer with Harry Elias Partnership LLP has just tendered his resignation with PAP for his extra-marital affair with a PA staff who has also since resigned.

Teo Ser Luck will take over Palmer’s MP role in the constituency, while Charles Chong will take over the role of Acting Speaker of Parliament. (I hear them screaming ‘OPPORTUNITIES!!!’)

So I reckon for the time being, Former Chief of  Central Narcotics Bureau Ng Boon Gay can take a leap back…And also,  former Singapore civil defence chief Peter Lim who are both facing jail time over sex-related corruption charges.

Not forgetting the other ‘vice ring’ incidents relating to underage prostitution, in particular Howard Shaw – The grandson of Runme Shaw, founder of Shaw Organisation that owns the Shaw cinema chain who engaged in underage prostitution as well.

Sigh, is there really no end to this? Is there no more hope?

Are Singapore men, rich or poor, ugly or handsome and a list of other variants… jerks?

What’s your say?

On a more serious note on our politics, is there gonna be a by-election for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC?

Reading off Mr Brown’s blog : “I remember that PM Lee said during WP Yaw Shin Leong saga: “The WP has let down the voters of Hougang.”

So what’s gonna be next? Or who rather…
