GE2015's results caught a lot of us by surprise. That itself is not surprising, because if anecdotal evidence, social media postings and attendance at rallies are to be trusted, the opposition parties seemed to have a lot going for them from (Read more...)
I have been following the developments of Singapore's GE2015 campaigns very closely. One, because it's part of my job working at a socio-political website, and two, because I find politics interesting and intriguing.
