Michael Palmer - 177A resignation?

Postby offshoreoildude » Wed, 12 Dec 2012 2:41 pm

I can't believe he'd resign over have a relationship with a young PAP gal - must have been a 177A non compliant relationship?

Where did you see it was a girl? Most of the reports I saw only said a member of the People's Association. I thought there might have been a reason for the gender omission ....... :o

I'm curious. What would be a 177A compliant PA member? :wink:

He did look a bit too neat and tidy.... 'not that there's anything wrong with it'.... as Seinfeld used to say.

Okay, the lady is out in the press tonight. So the gender is solved (although at our RC meeting tonight, our Chairman said it did state her gender in the Chinese paper, while it didn't in the English press. She's rather plain as well, definitely not a trophy type so I just don't understand where his mind is unless she had a real good rep! :cool:

She looks like every other Singaporean female I encounter in the MRT.

Doesn't matter. He shouldn't have gotten himself into scandal in the first place.

Somebody was blaming the woman today. This will be exactly like the underage sex scandal - the 'womans fault' - and as for the PM's comments on his FB page.... words fail me.
