Classic PAP spinelessness, refusing to be named but want to attack the opposition.

The by-election in Hougang, caused by the expulsion of MP Yaw Shin Leong from the Workers' Party (WP), is a chance for the People's Action Party (PAP) to build support in the staunchest of all opposition-leaning wards, said MPs on Thursday. 'It's an opportunity to erode their win,' said one veteran MP of the PAP. 'The WP has messed up a couple of times already in the last few months.' To do so, another ruling party MP suggested the PAP field a heavyweight candidate: 'Go big to show we are serious.' The MPs declined to be named as party leaders had asked them not to be drawn into any mudslinging over the saga.
