I thought CSJ is as entertaining as Trump! Looking fwd to watching his rallies, if any!

As a matter of fact, I don't trust and don't like CSJ still, but I think it's a small sacrifice to appease him with BB village than to see him come back to slay VB and SA in BTH. That's 4 seats vs 1 backbench. Will CSJ return to BTH or stay put to contest in BB, if he fails this time? :scratchhead:
Trump is far right so CSJ is more like Bernie lah. They even have the same democratic socialist leaning, same progressive leaning. I could even hear echoes of their platform - free college education, healthcare for all, cut defence spending, pro-LGBT, etc. If CSJ can draw the same amount of people to his rally as Bernie does (I doubt it), he may still have a chance.

GRC is a team sport and you need a team to win. CSJ cannot win BTH because he doesn't know how to organise one. He doesn't come across as a team player and the closest SDP come to was the 2011 GE, which ironically did not include CSJ.
I said in terms of 'entertainment', not political leaning. Bernie isn't as entertaining as Trump + CSJ. Such a dull chap Bernie is, regardless of the crowd he pulled (and still lost the NY primary anyway). Getting ready my popcorn.

U r right about the 2011 GE. CSJ made a mistake by not fielding Tambyah this BE. Period.

I most definitely agree.

An Indian lawyer vs an Indian doctor, it would have been one interesting BE (I think Tambyah could well win the contest).

now that you mentioned...if it's Tambyah vs Murali, it would be an interesting election...unfortunately CSJ is desperate to get into parliament.

I am totally speechless abt this independent candidate. Are they nuts? Why want to lose deposit like that when you are totally unknown to BB residents. And what are the chances of winning?

Opp sympathizers will donate

Why? Contingency plan, in case SDP nomination had any problem with officials. They wanted to prevent walkover. Think for opp solidarity...
